Question: mining in the cloud


#1

Hi All,

Question: is anyone successfully mining with a cloud service like AWS or Google Cloud?

I have a great team of web developers and we can whip something out fairly quickly however it is unclear if it is profitable to mine with a cloud VMs these days.

Thanks for your input!

only reason to do that is to have litecoin running on that server for solo…and because you don’t have the resources to run a node the entire time your running a miner…btw mining locally on your own network is always going to be faster than calling out to an external server
no different than mining for a pool…except you’d be the only one connected to a “cloud server”
