Miners (1-2 rig)

For those who own a mining rig with GPUs, SONM can provide:

  • Income that will be higher than your current mining values. Buy orders will always be present on SONM market, and the prices for them will be quite close to what your hardware can mine. From time to time another orders for rendering, machine learning, etc. with higher prices will be placed, allowing higher incomes of miners.
  • SONM will automatically switch between different tasks (including mining) to get the most profitable one. It works much like Nicehash but can run more profitable non-mining tasks.
  • Truly distributed system without proprietary code for market. Deals, money transfers, user profiles and ratings are placed on block-chain using Ethereum contracts, enabling proven and fair consensus. Core components are open-source, hosted on github.com
  • Reduces business risk for PoS implementation for Ethereum. Miner will not loose it's business with PoW cancelling, it will still earn money with their rig.

SONM limitations:

  • SONM can work only Linux, so Linux administration skills are required. SONM also enables an easy start option: bootable USB flash-drive with Linux optimized for SONM mining with remote monitoring and access capabilities included (not implemented in MVP).
  • SONM may require rig upgrade to accept more profitable jobs.
