scryptcc-income-calculator-roi

After day and a half of use of the recently launched scryptcc cloud mining service we can continue sharing our experience from the service. The Income Calculator is showing shorter time for break in now, meaning that the profitability of the coins mined has increased and now we are getting more like 100-120 day than up to 180 days for return of investment (without reinvesting the earned coins) though this value still varies a lot constantly. We’ve started getting 68 KHS at first just to test the deposit of BTC, then have increased the purchased hashrate to 232 KHS and since then we’ve been reinvesting all of the mined coins back into KHS and we are already at 234 KHS, so two more purchased with the mined coins… not bad at all for now. We are reinvesting only the mined coins, because we are still going to be testing the service for a while more before depositing more coins in it to purchase more KHS.

scryptcc-buy-sell-orders-list

Currently the exchange at scryptcc has little over 73150 KHS (73 MHS) of hashrate for purchase at a price of 0.00144444 BTC per KHS. This is the hashrate being sold by the service from the available mining power (a second batch of 100000 KHS) that is on the market at the standard price. As soon as it gets sold the trades will go between users who have purchased some of this hashrate, so we can expect that there will be an increase in the price per KHS. With that said it is also going to be a good idea to purchase KHS now and then sell them at profit if you are not interested in mining on the long run. And while you wait for the price to get higher, something that can take a few days, you can still make some extra mining profit, so it seems as a win-win situation.

We have also already contacted the scryptcc support with a few minor issues that we’ve had. We’ve already explained that the service is still very new and in Beta and although things are running quite smoothly, there are still some small things to polish left, but again nothing serious. The support is already looking into these and hopefully they will fix them soon, so should you decide to try the service do report some problems you find and send in your suggestions to the Support – this will help everyone else using the service, not only you. We are going to share more of our experience using the service in the following days, but we would recommend you to try it out yourself as well by getting a few KHS as a test if you are interested in it now.

btc-robot-automated-bitcoin-trading-robot-report

Three days have passed already since we have started testing out the BTC Robot automated Bitcoin trading robot, so it is time to report how things are progressing so far. Nothing much has happened since we’ve started using the software for automated trading, though we suspect that the reason for that is the current BTC market situation and the way that the trading bot operates. The fact that MtGox and Bitstamp – two of the largest BTC exchanges are currently not allowing Bitcoin withdraws due to possible vulnerability in the BTC transactions has created some chaos on the market and the exchange rate is going mostly down as a result. Even though the BTC Robot actually trades on the BTC-e exchange that has not suspended any of its operations regarding BTC withdraws or deposits and the BTC/USD exchange rate is fluctuating the robot is not executing trades on it. Even considering the fact that we’ve set the Aggressive trading option that should be more active on executing trades with a bit higher risk, but also with supposedly higher profit on success there are no trades because of the weird situation on the market. Hopefully things will get better soon and the trade bot will be able to trade properly soon, or the authors will implement a different trading strategy that will be effective even at the current market situation.

btc-robot-trading-strategy-explained

What you cannot normally learn before you purchase the BTC Robot automated Bitcoin trading robot is the trading strategy it relies on. Normally these automated trading solutions rely on some sort of market indicators such as EMA to “know” when to buy and sell to generate you profit. This solution however relies on a slightly different market indicator, it compares the current price at MtGox and compares it to the exchange rate at BTC-e to decide if it should buy or sell. The software uses three different indicators to make its decisions and they have different values for each of the preset modes you can choose from – Conservative, Medium and Aggressive mode or use your own custom settings. Below you can find the default trading settings for the three modes and in the Custom mode you can change them as you wish in order to get better results – less risk and profitability or higher risk and profitability.

Conservative:
Rmin = 0.09
Rmax = 0.12
R step = 0.01

Medium:
Rmin = -0.01
Rmax = 0.11
R step = 0.012

Aggressive:
Rmin = -0.01
Rmax = 0.11
R step = 0.02

One more important thing to note, especially if you are getting the Silver Plane where you get the BTC Robot as a downloadable software to install on your own computer as we did, instead of a version of the bot preinstalled in the cloud. You can only install the trading software on one computer as it does not checks, so do not install it on a laptop at work for example just to test it first – go directly to a dedicated computer that can be online 24/7 at your home. We have contacted the support to see if we can move the software to another computer as now we have to keep online a laptop that we installed it for a quick test running and on all the time, so this is just a bit of inconvenience, though the support helped us resolve the issue and the software has been moved on another system. Going for a cloud-based service with the other two plans will probably be much easier and problem free solution, so you better consider these.

scryptcc-scrypt-cloud-mining-service

After our initial excitement about the scryptcc cloud mining service where you can purchase scrypt KHS that will immediately start mining for you we can now share some more of our experience with the service. We have been using it already for almost half a day and it seems to be working very well so far, we’ve made a second BTC deposit and as soon as we got the third confirmation the Bitcoins were available for trading and purchasing KHS on the exchange. So we have increased our hashrate to 232 KHS for testing the service. Our initial 68 KHS were purchased with an exchange rate for 1 KHS of 0.00144390 BTC, but at the moment there is a slight decrease and you can purchase 1 KHS scrypt cloud mining hashrate for 0.00144360 BTC.

scryptcc-income-calculator-information

The income mining calculator over at scryptcc says that the return of investment will be something in between 90 and 180 days, the profitability of the mined altcoins probably changes often and that affects the earnings in each 10 minute session and thus the Break Even time is affected as well. However that will be true if you only purchase hashrate for mining on the long run, if you also start trading the hasrate on the exchange once there are more trades happening there as currently people are mostly buying as the service is new and there is big availability of KHS for sale. The chances are however the exchange rate will start to increase due to increase in the user interest and the price will probably start to grow. This gives you the chance to not only mine for profit, but also trade for some extra profit thus decreasing the ROI time.

scryptcc-mining-income-transactions

So far our profit from mining with the purchased Scrypt cloud mining hashrate is about 0.00072291 BTC for about half a day, though we started with just 68 KHS and then increased our hasrate to 232 KHS at a later time. The mined profit comes in steadily and is available to you every 10 minutes, so you can trade what you have mined for more KHS or withdraw it if you wish, though for now we are reinvesting the mined BTC into more hashrate. We are still very positive about this Scrypt cloud mining service as it really has a lot of potential, so you should give it a try if you are interested. One thing that we are missing at the moment however is the ability to deposit LTC and trade for KHS (as an extra to the available BTC support) with them and also to choose if you want to get your mined earnings in LTC or BTC, after all we are talking about Scrypt mining here, so LTC support is a must have feature and hopefully we are going to see it added soon.
