Hey guys,

Completely new to this so bear with the dumb questions.

My local Amazon drops 3080 Gaming X Trios in bulk daily @ MSRP. I have been able to scoop a handful of them up at that price and they ship out within a week.

At current prices it's supposed to return ~$200 a month after electricity costs. I'd be able to recover the costs in about 5 months.

Is is worth to build a mining rig with the cards or should I just sell them off at a slight profit and buy the coin directly?

Would love to hear from people who have built multi-card mining rigs.

Thanks!

The plan was to mine for 3-6 months then dump the card at 80-50% of cost

It's at $1,800 for 1 ether now. In 3 years I expect it to hit $10,000 for 1 ether.
5x investment for 3 years time.

ehh I expect polkadot to take over and replace eth. The brains from eth went to that token.
Yeah, I was aware that 1 Etherum founder went there, were there more?

Did you purchase a bunch of polkadot? I actually suggested a coworker buy it in December. It's only up 10000% since then...

No worries. I take it theres not a lot of anti-bot on amazon? I should probably not use my existing account for this?
I get quite a lot of captchas if I refresh the item page too much and it gets worse if you don't fill in the captchas. I did not add auto checkout because I didn't want to risk my account by logging in.
