In the last few days Siacoin (SC) mining has been picking up with the release of the first public mining pools as prior that only solo mining was possible. The profitability for mining Siacoin and then selling immediately is quite good, so some miners have moved away from mining Ethereum and other altcoins to check out SIA. To get a better idea on what profit you can expect mining Siacoin you can use the simple Siacoin Mining Calculator, all you have to do is enter your hashrate, we would recommend using the Siacoin Go pool miner for AMD and Nvidia GPUs and below you can find some benchmarks for the expected hashrate from various AMD and Nvidia GPUs using the miner (non overclocked):

– GTX 1080 – 1945 MHS
– GTX 1070 – 1466 MHS
– GTX 980 Ti – 1220 MHS
– GTX 970 – 803 MHS

There are already two public mining pools available – Siamining (Pay Per Share) and Sia Nanopool (PPLNS) that you might want to check out. There are also a couple of different miners, but the best one for the moment seems to be the Siacoin Go pool miner that uses OpenCL, but works on both ADM and Nvidia GPUs. Do note that what makes Siacoin even more attractive not just to mine and sell your coins, but to keep them is that there is a decentralized storage service that actual already relies on these crypto tokens to operate.
