I am contemplating looking into setting up another miner in the interim. I still like the concept of my pc working towards its upgrades while I'm afk.
Nicehash was pretty much the lowest of the low hanging fruit for joining a mining pool. It going down essentially just removed a lot of competition for mining certain coins.
However I already have plans for my evenings until this upcoming weekend, so I might miss out on the opportunity to get a few days of mining with less competition.
