I started mining in late May when the price of a bitcoin was around $2,000. I purchased a six month contract with Pool.Bitcoin.com, as I was not sure about how this would work out.
I invested one BTC at the time. My question was whether or not I’d get more BTC out of it than I put in?
During that six months, BCH was born and I decided to flip my miner over to support the underdog. At that time, just under three months in, my miner had collected .614 BTC.
Since I flipped to BCH, I am not able to compare apples-to-apples, and so my results are unclear. The final result from BCH mining for about three months was 4.627 BCH.
I believe had I stayed on BTC the entire time, I may have gotten over 1 BTC back out.
Another way to look at it is in terms of the value of what I did get out. Today, .614 BTC is worth about $5,100 USD. 4.627 BCH is worth $5580 ($1206/BCH today). That’s a total of $10,680 in value from what was originally one BTC, which right now is worth $8,315. So, even if BCH was $511 cheaper, it’d have still been in-the-black.
Looks like the six month contracts are gone. I’m going to try a 12 month this time and see how 100% on BCH will do.
