Bitcoin Mining Profit Calculator.
Why Our Calculator is the Most Accurate.
There are many factors that affect your mining profitability. Two of the main factors that influence your profitability are:
The Bitcoin price and the total network hash rate.
The Bitcoin network hash rate is growing at a rate of 0.4527678% per day. This means if you buy 50 TH/s of mining hardware your total share of the network will go DOWN every day compared to the total network hash rate.
Our calculator assumes the 0.4527678% daily increase in network hash rate that has been the average daily increase over the past 6 months.
Without factoring in this growth, most Bitcoin mining calculators show results that appear MUCH, MUCH more profitable than reality.
The Bitcoin Price.
Even though the network hash rate will cause your share of the network hash power to go down, the Bitcoin price can help make up some of these losses.
The Bitcoin price is rising at a slightly lesser 0.3403% per day over the past year. We suggest you enter a custom Bitcoin price into our calculator based on what you expect the average price to be over the next year.
The price has gone down for most of the past year, which is a factor that should be strongly considered in your calculations.
What our Calculator Assumes.
Since our calculator only projects one year out, we assume the block reward to be 12.5. We also use the current Bitcoin price in our calculations, but you can change the Bitcoin price to anything you'd like to get better data.
Factors That Affect Mining Profitability.
Mining can be an effective way to generate passive income. However, there are numerous factors that affect mining profitability, and often times they are out of your control.
Some seem to believe they will be able to quit their nine-to-five job after investing in a few Bitcoin miners - unfortunately, that is not necessarily the case.
How do you know if mining is right for you?
It is important to understand the constantly changing dynamics that play into mining profitability, especially before you invest your hard-earned money. Nevertheless, a proper passive income can be generated if you play your cards right. Let's explore the factors that you need to consider before you buy mining hardware:
Initial Investment.
The initial investment in efficient mining hardware is probably one of the things keeping you from pulling the trigger, and for good reason. Mining hardware is expensive!
In actuality, the high cost of dedicated mining hardware ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuits) is largely to blame for the centralization of Bitcoin mining in China.
In case you were not aware, the vast majority of mining operations are in China, primarily because of cheap electricity (more on that later.) Since ASICs are expensive, many average consumers do not have the capital to invest.
Large mining corporations operate mining farms with thousands of ASICs. The average Joe can't even afford one ASIC, much less thousands of them.
Instead of mining being spread out across the world, the validation process is controlled by fewer people than first anticipated upon Bitcoin's inception.
ASICs' impact on Bitcoin aside, it is important to determine your ROI timeline before investing. Some hardware might not pay itself off at all. The additional factors below are largely responsible for determining your ROI period.
You can use the calculator above to determine your projected earnings based on the ASIC you're using, and your electricity cost.
Block Rewards and Transaction Fees.
Every time a block is validated, the person who contributed the necessary computational power is given a block reward in the form of new-minted BTC and transaction fees.
Bitcoin's block time is roughly 10 minutes. Every 10 minutes or so, a block is verified and a block reward is issued to the miner. When Bitcoin was first created, miners received 50 BTC for verifying a block. Every 210,000 blocks - roughly 4 years - the amount of BTC in the block reward halves.
50 BTC per block may seem high, but it is important to consider the price of Bitcoin at that time was much less thant it is today. As the Bitcoin block reward continues to halve, the value of Bitcoin is predicted to increase. So far, that trend has remained true.
First, the amount of newly minted BTC (often referred to as coinbase, not to be confused with the Coinbase exchange) halved to 25 BTC, and the current coinbase reward is 12.5 BTC. Eventually, there will be a circulating supply of 21 million BTC and coinbase rewards will cease to exist.
If BTC is no longer minted, mining won't be profitable anymore, right?
Transaction fees are issued to miners as an incentive to continue validating the network. By the time 21 million BTC has been minted, transaction volume on the network will have increased significantly and miners' profitability will remain roughly the same.
Of course, block rewards have a direct impact on your mining profitability, as does the value of BTC - since the value of BTC is volatile, block rewards will vary. Additionally, successfully confirming a block is the only way you will generate any revenue whatsoever by mining.
This leads us to our next point:
Block Difficulty.
If you were able to connect the dots, you probably realized that a block reward is worth a whole lot of money. Take a look:
12.5 BTC x current BTC value (approximately $7,400) = $92,500. NOTE: The market is currently bearish - block rewards are always subject to change.
If block rewards are worth so much, why isn't everyone buying ASICs?
Mining Bitcoin is not easy - that's why millions of dollars have been invested to research, develop, prototype and sell specialized mining hardware.
Even if you invest in a specialized mining ASIC which can cost thousands of dollars, your chances of successfully validating a block on your own are slim.
ASICs have caused Bitcoin's mining difficulty to skyrocket. Moreover, you're competing with everyone else on the network to validate a block. Those with more computational power are more likely to validate a block.
As stated previously, companies have set up large-scale mining operations in China with thousands of ASICs running in synchrony. They're more likely to confirm the block than you are on your own.
Nevertheless, there are ways for the little guy to turn a profit. If you want to start mining Bitcoin, consider joining a Bitcoin mining pool. You'll team up with other miners to increase your collective hashing power, thus increasing your chances of validating a block.
If a block is validated by your mining pool, the block reward will be distributed according to the amount of computational power you contributed. For example, if you were responsible for 5% of the hashing power, you'd receive 5% of the block reward, minus pool fees.
Mining pools may not seem appealing at first because you have to divvy up the reward, but they're actually a smart move, as they significantly increase your odds of validating a block. Otherwise, you may end up consuming loads of electricity without actually being rewarded for your work.
Speaking of electricity:
Electricity Cost.
Electricity cost is probably the factor that has the most impact on mining profitability.
After all, Bitcoin's SHA-256 mining algorithm is classified as Proof-of-Work (PoW) because work must be done to validate the network. The 'work' is computational power - therefore electricity is required to validate the network.
Always look at a miner's hashrate/power consumption ratio. Ideally, you want an ASIC that has a high hashrate and low power consumption. Such an ASIC would be efficient and profitable because you'd hopefully validate a block which would be worth more than your electricity costs.
If you don't successfully validate a block, you'll end up spending money on electricity without anything to show for your investment. If you want to maximize your profitability, purchase the most efficient ASIC and mine where electricity is cheap.
If you're looking for a great BTC ASIC miner, check out Halong Mining's Dragonmint T16.
In the United States, the average electricity cost is around $0.12 cents per kilowatt-hour. In other countries, electricity cost will vary. Asia's electricity is particularly cheap, which is why China is home to many mining operations.
Conclusion.
Bitcoin mining is very competitive. If you are looking to generate passive income by mining Bitcoin, it is possible, but you have to play your cards right.
In order to profitably mine, make sure that you: Mine with cheap electricity Buy the most efficient miner you can Join a mining pool Have patience.
Now you have the tools to make a more informed decision. Mining is competitive, yet rewarding. If you invest in the proper hardware and combine your hashing power with others', your odds of turning a profit will increase considerably.

Bitcoin Return Calculator with Inflation Adjustment.
On this page we present a bitcoin return calculator . Enter any two dates between July 17, 2010 and a final date and we will estimate the annual and total return on any money invested in bitcoin. Enter a starting investment value and the bitcoin tool will guess the investment value on the final date.
Optionally, you can also adjust the bitcoin price return and final price for inflation. We use the CPI-U index, interpolated or extrapolated to find a bitcoin investment's value on your investment date.
Bitcoin Price Return Calculator with Inflation Adjustment.
The bitcoin return calculator uses data from BraveNewCoin via Quandl as well as historical bitcoin return data from Bitcoinity.
Using the Bitcoin Price Return Calculator.
There are only a few options when using the bitcoin return calculator, but any small adjustments can have major effects on your results.
Investing Options.
Starting Investment ($): The dollar amount invested in bitcoin on the 'Starting Date'. Starting Date: The date the bitcoins were first purchased. Ending Date: The date bitcoins are sold, or a date to estimate the bitcoin holding value. Adjust for Inflation (CPI): If checked, the return percentages and terminal value of the investment are CPI-U adjusted to account for inflation. For dates later than the last print, we use linear extrapolation to estimate inflation. For dates between readings, we use interpolation.
Bitcoin Return Output Results.
Total Return (%): The total return of the bitcoin investment if purchased on the 'Starting Date' and sold on the 'Ending Date'. (CPI adjusted if selected.) Annualized Return (%): Unlike total return, the return of the bitcoin investment when normalized to provide annual results. (Again, CPI adjusted if selected.) Ending Value ($): The terminal value of the bitcoin investment on the 'Ending Date'. (Once more, CPI adjusted if checked). CPI Adjusted? Flags a CPI adjustment on the return and investment fields.
Sources and Methodology for the Bitcoin Price Return Calculator.
The bitcoin return calculator uses data from BraveNewCoin and Bitcoinity. Wherever the Bitcoinity data includes multiple exchanges, we used the average daily bitcoin price on all exchanges. For the three gaps in the dataset - 6/21/2011 - 6/22/2011, 6/24/2011 - 6/25/2011, and 6/27/2011 - 7/04/2011 - we interpolated the available data to backfill bitcoin prices on those dates.
If there is both Bitcoinity Data and BraveNewCoin data, the BraveNewCoin data takes precedence. In practice, this means the data beyond 2014 all comes from BraveNewCoin.
Note that bitcoin markets don't "close" in the sense that a stock market might. Bitcoin closing prices are as reported by an exchange . On top of reporting differences, different exchanges may have different bitcoin prices for each date. Also, bitcoin can be extremely volatile intraday; note that the prices internal to our tool may be 10% - or more - different than the prices paid by some market participants in the same 24-hour period.
We believe the trends are correct for the tool, and it's a reasonably good guess at how a typical bitcoin investor would have performed between two dates. However, this tool is for informational or research purposes only. Do your own due diligence.
Bitcoin as a Speculative Investment.
Bitcoin is a speculation, but potentially lucrative. Do your research.
The bitcoin return results quoted should in no way be taken as advice on whether to invest in bitcoin or other cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrencies, as an asset class, have demonstrated more volatility than any of the other investments we've featured on this site in calculator format. For bitcoins, the time of day any bitcoin was bought or sold makes investor performance vary wildly. As we argued in the 2017 bitcoin return piece, bitcoin is closer to a speculation than an investment.
Bitcoin and other cryptocurrency investors have had extremely remarkable runs as well as harrowing drops. We'll repeat our advice: for the vast majority of investors, we recommend a regular asset allocation and passively managed index funds. However, if you do the research and still feel bitcoin makes sense in your portfolio, hopefully our calculator goes some of the way to easing your research burden.

Bitcoin Fee Calculator & Estimator.
Learn about bitcoin fees.
Bitcoin is made up of blocks . Blocks are a set of transactions, and currently restricted to be less than or equal to 1,000,000 bytes and designed so that on average only 1 block per.
10 minutes can be created. The groups the create blocks are known as bitcoin miners . These miners can pick which ever transactions they want in the block they create.
Bitcoin miners get paid all the transaction fees in the block they mine. So as such, it is in their interests to maximize the amount of money they make when they create a block. So what they do is pick the 1,000,000 bytes of transactions that results them getting paid the most money.
From a bitcoin miner perspective, they don't care of the value of a transaction, but just the size (amount of bytes), because they are only allowed to create blocks of 1,000,000 bytes or less. So miners don't consider the absolute fee a transaction has, but rather, the fee per byte .
Why are the fee estimations so high?
Eye-balling it, sometimes it looks like the fee estimates are super high. The reason that is, is because they use 95% confidence. If a block was found now maybe you'd only need 20 satoshi/byte, but it might be an hour before the next block and in the subsequent time a large amount of new transactions come in.
Sometimes you don't need such high confidence (e.g. it's not important, or you have a way of fee bumping), so you can get away with much lower fees.
Why are fees so damn high?
Politics. There's actually a pretty neat solution that offers some minor, but immediate relief. But at this stage looks like it's being held hostage to some political agenda that I'm not privy to.
Why do some low-fee paying transactions appear early in the mempool?
It's because a high-fee paying transaction depends on it, and reprioritizes it. i.e. the only way for the miner to get the money from the "good" transaction, is include a "bad" one first. It's known as Child-Pays-For-Parent (CPFP), but note that some old versions of bitcoin core, and bitcoin unlimited don't support it (and leave those transactions for smarter miner software).
Do you have historical data?
How did you build this?
The fee estimates are simply generated by calling estimatesmartfee $n on bitcoin core (0.16.0). The chart is generated by dumping the mempool and doing some smart sorting .
A Lowdown on Bitcoin Fees.
The Bitcoin website lists fast peer-to-peer transactions, worldwide payments, and low processing fees as the most important features of the cryptocurrency. Not surprisingly, Bitcoin has become extremely popular as a way to send money digitally across the globe as it solves critical problems faced by transactions executed in fiat currencies.
In fact, the number of Bitcoin transactions has been consistently rising this year. The third quarter saw 20 million Bitcoin transactions being executed, up from 17.6 million during the second quarter. What's more, the number of Bitcoin transactions has increased at the rate of at least 5% month-over-month since February 2018.
This growth can be attributed to the drop in the average transaction fees on the Bitcoin network, which was earlier proving to be a hindrance in the way of the adoption of this cryptocurrency.
A brief history of Bitcoin fees.
CNBC reported in December 2017 that users were paying $28 on an average to transact using Bitcoin. There was one Twitter user who claimed that he had to incur $16 worth of fees to send $25 worth of Bitcoin from one address to another, while another journalist had to spend $15 to send $100 worth of Bitcoin from a digital wallet to a hardware wallet. In fact, the average Bitcoin transaction fee had shot up to $55 in the third week of December last year, according to BitInfoCharts.
However, the average Bitcoin transaction fee has come down rapidly since then. BitInfoCharts reveals that the average Bitcoin transaction fee had dropped to just $0.50 in the first half of November 2018, which is probably why users are transacting more in Bitcoin to send and receive payments across the globe. But what has caused such a massive drop in the average Bitcoin transaction fees? To find out, we will first have to understand why Bitcoin fees are charged.
The economics behind Bitcoin fees.
A Bitcoin transaction has to be added to the Blockchain in order to be successfully completed. However, for a transaction to be added to the Blockchain, it first needs to be validated by miners who solve a complex mathematical problem to verify the transaction. These miners spend a lot of computing power and energy when verifying a block of transactions from the Bitcoin Mempool (short for memory pool), which contains unconfirmed transactions waiting to be added to a block for confirmation.
Now, miners need to be incentivized for the time, effort, and resources that they are putting in to validate the unconfirmed transactions. As a result, they are given a fee of 12.5 BTC to successfully mine a block, but this is just one of the incentives on offer. Miners also earn a transaction fee that's selected by the sender in a Bitcoin transaction for their effort as they play a critical role in keeping the network secure.
What drives transaction fees?
Each block of transactions on the Blockchain cannot contain more than 1 megabyte of information, so miners can only include a limited number of transactions in each block. This is why miners prioritize those transactions where they have the potential to earn higher transaction fees.
So, if the mempool is full, users looking to get their transactions through will compete on fees. They will push up the fee in a bid to get their transaction included into the next block that's set to be mined. So, the Mempool bottleneck plays an important role in determining the transaction fee, though this isn't the only aspect affecting this metric.
The transaction size also has a role to play in the fee determination. As miners can only include select transactions within the 1 megabyte block, they prefer selecting small transaction sizes because they are easier to confirm. Transactions occupying more space, on the other hand, need more work for validation so they need to carry a higher fee in order to be included in the next block.
So, there are two factors determining transaction fees -- network congestion and transaction size -- and they also play a critical role in the time taken for a transaction to be confirmed. For instance, if a user sends a transaction with very low fees attached to it and the Bitcoin Mempool is full, then miners won't prefer picking that transaction because of the low incentive involved. In such cases, it could take several hours for the transaction to be confirmed.
However, if a user is willing to pay a higher transaction fee, then the first confirmation could arrive in 10 minutes, which is the time taken to mine a block. The Bitcoin community requires six such confirmations for a transaction to be completely validated. This means that if there's no network congestion and the fee attached is high, then the transaction should be successfully processed in an hour.
The future of Bitcoin fees.
Earlier we saw that Bitcoin fees have dropped rapidly over the past year, spurring a growth in the number of transactions. This can be attributed to the smaller Bitcoin Mempool size. However, in case the number of unconfirmed transactions increases at a faster pace than the rate at which new blocks are mined, there will be network congestion. This is when the average Bitcoin transaction fees will go up.
This is the scalability problem faced by Bitcoin thanks to the limited number of nodes. However, the community is coming up with ways to circumnavigate this issue so that numerous transactions are executed quickly with low fees. Earlier this year, a user was able to carry out 42 transactions using the Lightning Network and spent just 4.9 cents in transaction costs.
The Lightning Network is a second-layer payment protocol on top of the Bitcoin blockchain that's capable of conducting a high volume of transactions at speed by reducing the on-chain load. As such, there's a good chance that the average Bitcoin transaction fees will remain low going forward thanks to the development of such payment protocols, thereby boosting the adoption of this cryptocurrency as a means of digital payments.
