Hello Everyone. Today I am very excited to tell you about a new minable altcoin, that is Straks Coin. Straks is a new cryptocurreny by Sigtnatum team. In this article you will get to know about how to mine straks with graphics card, stable overclock settings, best pool to mine and a brief intro about STAK coin. Keep reading this article to know everything about STAK mining.
currently it is one of the most profitable altcoin to mine right now. Don’t know how long profitability will last though. Yesterday I updated everyone connected to JKCrypto via Telegram and via dedicated post for GTX 1080 Ti miners.Hope you are one of them and making good profits. If not, you can still mine STAK coin today.
You can consider the title of this article as a clickbait but it’s not. Yesterday I have mined 130 STAK coin with 7 X 1080 Ti and sold them for $1 (0.000081 btc) which equals to $18.5/card. This is the best number so far I have earned in a day from gpu mining.
Now the difficulty has increased so you won’t be mining 18 Straks/day/1080 ti as I did yesterday but still you can expect 10-12 Straks in a day considering,not everyone jumps to mine straks. Current difficuly is around 800.
Another risk is Straks price. Coin is new and not listed on any of the major exchanges, currently on “coinsmarkets.com”. Gap in buy and sell is very high. Highest buy bid at 0.000037 btc ($.45) and lowest sell bid at 0.000069 ($.85). I placed sell bid at 0.000081($1) yesterday which successfully got executed.In worst case scenario you will be making at least $5/day/1080 ti but if you are lucky enough $10/day/1080 ti is quite possible.
I can’t predict the price after 24 hours.Though I am mining STAK right now and I think price will increase, as per my experience, initially ,maximum new coins get pumped up.
