As discussed in the Community Council meeting of 20th of July, the Community Council is planning to buy some G1 Mini miners and possibly a G1 miner from NHash.
The reason we want to buy miners are the following:
We want to have a continuous income of Grin to use for community relate activities such as contests, bounties, Funding Requests. Regarding using grin for funding request, this is something we will separately discuss during next meeting Community Council meeting and nothing is official yet, but some of us think it might be good to start using Grin for Funding request payments (e.g. 10% of the total payment requested).
If this would be the case, we need a larger inflow of Grin meaning, a larger number of miners.
We want to contribute to the security of Grin and use the miners to mine via community pools such as https://www.grinmint.com/ to balance the larger numbers of miners on bigger pools.
We are aware that our hash power would only be a modest contribution to this goal, but together, many small contributions do make a difference
These are the two options that we need YOUR OPINION on by LIKING
- 12 G1 mini’s + 1 G1, total of 66 chips, equaling 70.02 G/s
-estimate cost, around 50.000$ if bought without discount
- 12 G1 minis (total of 12 chips, equaling 15.6 G/s
-estimate cost, around 11 thousand dollar)
-The reason we do not by more G1 Mini’s but a G1 is because managing them would be to much administrative burden on Community Council.
We would like to know your opinion by voting/liking the two options, which will be posted below in separate response which you can like.
Please take into consideration that if we are going to use Grin in Funding Requests, option 1) would be best since we would need a lot of Grin. If you funding request should not be partly paid in Grin, option 2) would be enough to provide sufficient Grin income to organize community activities.
