Check Your Profitability with the Siacoin Mining Calculator

14 Jul


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):

Siacoin Go Pool miner hashrate:
– GTX 1080 – 1945 MHS
– GTX 1070 – 1466 MHS
– GTX 980 Ti – 1220 MHS
– GTX 970 – 803 MHS
– GTX 950 – 385 MHS
– GTX 750 Ti – 301 MHS
– RX 480 – 872 MHS
– R9 280X – 849 MHS
– R9 290x – 1116 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.

I think there’s something wrong in the calculated earnings amount. Values are too high compared to the real ones

Meh, that’s (arguably) a universal truth of mining profit calculators. They should be used to provide a rough estimate. Take it all with a grain of salt :D

It’s definitely off, way off. This one is accurate

R9 290 0 Win7/64bits – Amd driver 15.12:
The latest ethereum-genoil makes me 30.7MHS/s (max).
Claymore’s Dual5.1Beta: 29.5 (avarage)Mh/s ether + 450Mh/s Sia
Anyway the SIA does not look profitable now.
Also in my experiences there is a gap between the reported and calculated hash on nanopool when I use Caymore’s dual, the Genoil looks closer.

For me that calculator gave 2x to high earnings.

Hmm, sia.nanopool looks wrong, but the pool has good accept rates. it makes worth to mining sia with ether.

Scamalama Ding Dong!

> This one is accurate

That one is broken (as in, doesn’t give any answer at all).

scamalama, It does work you just have to do an extra step. Plug in your hashrate, plug in the Difficulty (you can get it here, and plug in the current block reward (240,000 is close enough) I put electric usage at 0. It will give you the correct number of sia mined per day. Take that number and multiply it by the price at poloniex and you will get your btc per day. Multiply it by whatever currency after that and you’ll get what you want.
