Small scale mining is much more expensive. This isn’t a minimal difference.
How the heck is this your take (outside of purchase rationalization, that is)
At least @KuramaKitsune was multimining/hash renting and got out early/plans on getting out.
small scale mining isn’t profitable since the Ethereum craze started
The only profitable miners (eth maximal) right now are the early actors that got in at sufficient scale, and even then they’re working on thin margins. This is common knowledge.
We’re not just trying to be mean, we’re trying to educate. The disagreements you have with us seem to stem from a lack of basic fiscal literacy, which is fine, we don’t really teach it in the US, but it’s still a good thing to study, and I recommend you do so moving forward.
