All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
It has been about a week already since we have discovered the new Markets CX LTC cloud mining service and have started testing it. We have decided to give it a try as it was new and interesting, so we have invested 5 Litecoins to purchase about 120 KHS worth of cloud mining hashrate at a price of 0.0410 LTC per KHS. Initially we’ve had some concerns about the service that is claiming to be using Gridseed ASIC devices to provide so attractive prices for cloud mining hashrate as compared to other services that are still using GPUs. You can check our first impressions from the MarketsCX Litecoin cloud mining service and see some of the concerns and issues that some readers that have decided to try it out as well have reported.
The good news is that a week later and the service is still here and works and today we’ve got an official reply in the comments section of the article with our initial impressions seemingly from the Support of the service. This is the reason why we’ve decided to give some updates on our experience with the Markets CX service so far and below is a quote of the post regarding some of the issues reported in the comments above:
Guys, indeed there were some technical problems a few days ago. Some user accounts with dots and uppercase characters in their E-mail addresses were affected. We have successfully solved this problem. No LTC, KHS or mining profits were lost.
It is nice that they are keeping an eye on what other people are talking about their service and taking the time to respond to users with issues that are not posted on their website, though their onsite support seems a bit slow in responding apparently. Up until today we’ve had no issues with the service so far, and today was a bit of a delay when we have requested an LTC withdraw – we did not receive a confirmation email shortly after requesting the withdraw (previously we got it in less than a minute). So we’ve sent a support ticket about the problem and have requested multiple times a withdraw to test if we are going to receive an email. A bit more than an hour later we got a confirmation email and the withdraw was completed, so we’ve closed the ticket (we got no answer, but maybe the issues was addressed). So a few more hours later we’ve requested another withdraw to see if the problem with the delay still exists. Again we did not get a confirmation email within a few minutes, but requesting the withdraw again and we got the confirm email in a moment (again just one with two requests made).
Another thing that we did not like much about the service is the rapid decline in price per KHS, we have purchased hashrate just a week ago at 0.0410 LTC per KHS and back then this was very reasonable price and now the price is 0.02442 LTC per KHS. We are not sure if this is because of users that are dumping their hashrate or by the service pushing new hashrate at a lower price, but we are not very happy that in just a week time our hashrate lost almost half of its value (a common problem with cloud hashrate services with trading exchanges). Currently there are more than 34 MHS worth of hashrate available on the exchange, so at the moment you can buy some cheap LTC mining hashrate. We do recommend caution though as this is still a new service and we still do have some concerns, so not a good idea to invest a lot of Litecoins in it for the moment. If you are interested in checking it out you can get with a few LTCs like we did, as it is probably not a good idea to invest in thousands of KHS for the moment!
