Hi Everyone, I’m looking for some advice or perhaps sharing of your experience regarding how you are finding the economics of farming. I’m very new to this (only 1 node up for 1 month) so I’m in need of a bit of guidance.
The specs of my server are as follows:
CPU: 32 cores / 64 threads (ThreadRipper)
RAM: 126 GB
SSD: 1 TB (not yet registering but I’ve already been given instructions how to fix this)
HDD: 48 TB
Total cost of this server: $10,000 NZD
The TFTA payment I received for the first month: 294~ TFTA (about $20 NZD)
That might cover the power bill with the machine at idle.
Depreciation on the hardware for the first year alone will be $4000.
Thanks in advance to anyone who can provide some insight on how this works for your own situation.
Alan Purchase, Auckland, NZ.
