$14000 Chia Rig on eBay

Just found a $14000 Chia Rig on eBay:

It’s mainly 18 TB Toshiba HDDs according to the seller. Assuming it were only 18 TB HDDs, the 700 TB translates to 38,88888888888889 drives. Given the Toshiba drives are usually on sale for like $250 / 250 Euro, the HDDs alone are worth $9722 / 9722 Euro. Calculating with $300 / 300 Euro per HDD, the value of the HDDs is $11666 / 11666 Euro. Not the worst price. :slight_smile:

Who will buy it? :smiley:

still that means you are buying 700 TB farm + 2 plotters for something like 20% less than the price it costs new: not exactly a steal, but can’t fault the seller for trying. I’m sure many of them will be open to a realistic offer


18TB Toshiba new costs 270-300 CHF/$/€ 40x HDD = 11-12k

used server SuperMicro 200$, 2x HBA + 2x expanders 400$ …600-1000$

~6000 plots takes about 100+ days to plot with overall costs ~500$ on 3000-5000$ plotting rig

100h * 30$ to get it running, and make it stable = 3000$

some beer money, and you are at 18k+ :wink: For some clueless kid with lots of money/free energy from mom, that wants to earn 150€/month it is gold mine :smiley:

Well, it was a tick more profitable when listed, but absolutely. If there are any NEETs out there that don’t like working, coins/mining (farming) was enough to buy a new pair of sweatpants, some Cheetos, and a couple games on Steam. It’s a little tougher now but if mom’s paying the power bill…

That is literally the most retarded thing I’ve ever heard anyone say

Why wouldn’t they just simply ask for the money

No way in hell a parent wouldn’t start asking questions

Lol? Its my farm. Someone want to buy?

I also accept Crypto.

I just wanted to post it here today :rofl:

If someone is really interested i can give more information

Best regards
