In the past few months, the ChiaCoin cryptocurrency has gained high popularity. Unlike other coins, its mining does not require high-performance graphics cards, so the farm is quiet, economical and not hot.
For mining ChiaCoin, an SSD or HDD is used, and a solid-state drive is preferable, since the write and read speed on it is ten times higher than that of magnetic drives, which has a positive effect on earnings.
Mining ChiaCoin with an SSD can be extremely disadvantageous as the SSD will fail very soon due to exceeded write cycles. Typically, an SSD serves in a computer for five years, or even more, depending on the intensity of information recording. Cryptocurrency mining requires a disproportionately greater load on the drive, so the write resource may end in a few months. Experts estimate that a 512 GB drive may fail in two months, while a 2 TB drive will last less than six months.
Taking into account the fluctuations in the rate of cryptocurrencies, it is likely that the purchase of the drive will not pay off and the miner even runs the risk of losing money (especially since SSD drives are quite expensive). Of course, you can use not SSDs for mining, but HDD drives, for which there is no such thing as a recording resource, but magnetic disks are much slower and can also break due to prolonged and continuous load.
By the way, it was ChiaCoin that led to an increase in prices for drives around the world, including Russia and China. Due to miners some models of video cards and processors have also risen in price.
