Ethereum mining recently has been very interesting. And there is hidden mining profits that nobody have been talking about. What i mean by nobody is that some of the mining calculators will show you different/incorrect current Ethereum mining profitability.
First off all you need to understand how Blockchains work , so for example Ethereum you have the block rewards which is currently 2 ETH paid out to mining pool who finds the block averaging 15sec a block (13500 ETH/24h)
Then there is transaction fees, to process transaction on Ethereum you have to pay GAS fee which is calculated in Ether . All these transaction fees are paid out to mining pool who has found the block and recorded all these transactions on this block. These transaction fees currently is over 5000ETH/24h .
The fees are at the highest they have been, since May up-till now they are higher then total bitcoin fees.
So this is where the hidden ETH mining profits are coming from. To test this out i have tested 11xRX5700 gpu Ethereum mining rig for 24h mining on hiveos ethereum mining pool.
Conclusion is that check multiple mining calculators to get the most accurate result . Like cryptocompare mining calculator does not have latest data from transaction fees, whattomine showing accurate results for me. Or the best solution test yourself, pools sometimes also could affect your payot amount, depending on size of the pool and payment structure.
Which mining pool do you get the best results?

thanks for all the info and videos your are providing…it helps a lot. I moved due to your good info from ethos to hive os. Now my question….how do you get 75W of power consuption on those RX5700/XT…i am not able to get them there even using your screenshot…are there other parameters i need to change to get those low consumptions?
Thx and best regards
Software power usage doesnt match the powerusage from the wall.
my MSI/AMD RX 5700 XT 8GB uses 200W + PC 100W 😉
Factory default with 50MH/s
Meassured on APC UPS where I can see power draw on the fly so I doubt your 8 cards with 1000W is valid 😉
