Cryptocurrency - Ethereum + Siacoin, anyone in SG tried it yet?



Hello fellow hardwarezoners!

I was wondering if anyone in Singapore has attempted mining the new cryptocurrencies, Ethereum and Siacoin. A lot of people speculate it to be the next Bitcoin. I did mine for bitcoins a while ago, and was wondering if anyone else is mining the new currencies......

not worth mining now
The profitability is getting lower each day.
A lot of miners exiting the scene.

Don;t think worth mining now.
Interesting that SEC recently clamped on ICOs. Seems like signs of maturing tho most sees it as something bad. Could do with some stability as well.

Mt Gox saga already tells you this cryptocurrency not safe.

Quoine saga also tells you transactions is reversible.

The computations needs many many computers to compute. This is an unnatural waste of earth limited resources.
