The “Earning Rates” given by sites like WhatToMine or Nicehash are guesstimates, anything as inherently random as cryptomining (it’s named after mining for a reason) will never yield constant flat rates. Furthermore, their estimates are based on the “best possible circumstances,” meaning that they reflect the maximum that a give GPU could earn, if certain conditions are met, such as:
- Properly overclocked GPUs
- Undervolting for max efficiency
- Mining 24 hours/day, 7 days/week
- Achieving 100% luck rates
Obviously, most of us regular folks are not going to meet these criteria - we’ve got games to play dammit! So, try to avoid comparing your Salad earnings to these idealized numbers. It’s quite possible that you may meet or approach these rates given a run of decent luck, but unless you’re very lucky and very optimized you won’t see them with any consistency.
