All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
The crypto mining and deposits with interest platform OXBTC has announced a Red Envelopes promotion in celebration to the Chinese New Year. This promotion allows newly registered users to get some free Bitcoin cloud mining hashrate at the platform absolutely free for 1 month. Depending on your luck you, when you open your Red Envolope, you might win between 1 GHS and 1000 GHS and the hashrate you get will be available in your account for 1 month and you get to keep all of the profits it generates without having to invest or buy anything. The duration of the promotion is between February 22nd and March 6th, so don’t miss your chance to get some free hashrate for a month and earn some extra BTC.
This promotion is probably in order to stimulate more people to buy cloud mining hashrate at the platform as apparently there is not much interest from users as expected with the high prices for hashrate. The initial price of $0.499 USD per GHS with $0.0009 USD per GHS per day maintenance fee was not very attractive and while there is now a new price at $0.399 USD per GHS with $0.0007 USD per GHS per day maintenance fee it is still not too attractive with the recent jumps in Bitcoin’s network hashrate and difficulty. The $13 USD per MHS for Litecoin cloud mining hashrate is also pretty high (Maintenance Fee: $0.02 / MHS / Day), even though LTC has shown pretty stable difficulty level and price for quite a while making it more predictable for profit calculation on the long term. With the not so great track record that the company previously had with the ZeusHash it is no wonder that they are not doing great with hashrate sales in this new platform as well, but when they give you free hashrate why not take it anyway.
Unfortunately their deposits with interest service is getting less attractive than it was before with Current Deposits down from 0.02% daily to 0.01% (cut in half) and the 30-Day Fixed Deposits are down from 15% APY to just 7%. Interestingly enough the HalleyBTC Bitcoin savings investment platform operated by the same people still has the same 0.02% daily interest rate and 15% APY for 3-day fixed deposits.
The cloud mining service provider Genesis Mining now offers more Ethereum cloud mining hashrate after briefly being out of stock due to the high user demand. Unfortunately the return of more available Ethereum cloud mining hashrate for sale comes with a significantly higher price per MHS than it was available for before. Previously 1 year mining contracts were available at $17.99 USD per MHS with all included fees for the term of the contract and now the price is set at $44 USD per MHS for the same terms or more than double the old price. One can argue that in the recent days there has been a significant jump in the exchange rate of Ethereum’s Ether (ETH) coins on the market, more than double, and the performance per GPU is lower because of the increasing DAG size, but it is not clear if this will be a long term price increase or it is just temporary jump. So while at the old price the Ethereum cloud mining contracts were very attractive, but they are not anymore now that their price has been significantly increased… will have to wait and see.

The Bitcoin network difficulty is skyrocketing lately and as the trend continues buying ASIC miners or cloud mining hashrate at the old prices that were available for the last few months was not a very good idea as the mining profit dropped significantly even though the BTC exchange rate has risen as well. Today Genesis Mining has announced a significant decrease in the price of Bitcoin cloud mining hashrate as well as a reduction in the maintenance fee thanks to the deployment of new mining hardware. The new prices are as follows: $26 USD for 100 GHS ($0.26 per GHS) Lifetime Bitcoin mining plan, $499 USD for 2000 GHS hashrate ($0.25 per GHS) and $2400 USD for 10 THS ($0.24 per GHS). These new prices are for new purchases of hashrate at the service and they also come with new lower maintenance fee of $0.00055 USD per GHS down from the old fee of $0.00069 USD per GHS per day. This should make new purchases of Bitcoin cloud mining hashrate more profitable for the time being, though it seems that the total Bitcoin network difficulty is continuing to grow quite rapidly so you should think well before doing an investment in mining hashrate and that goes not only for cloud mining for BTC.
The cloud mining service still offers X11 cloud mining hashrate as well via GPUs, but it has been temporary out of stock of Ethereum (ETH) cloud mining hashrate due to the high demand that is associated with the recent serious jump in the price of the Ether coins. We are being promised that there will be new GPUs installed soon and more Ethereum cloud mining hashrate should become available for miners that are interested in purchasing such. If you decide to purchase some cloud mining hashrate do not forget that you can get an extra 5% discount from the regular price by using our coupon code CryptoMiningBlog5 during the checkout, so do take advantage from that special offer.
