If you buy stocks you don't need to claim anything until you sell. That's when profits or losses are determined. How is crypto any different?
I also thought about what happens when I am out of the house and a system freezes. At this point the best solution I have come up with is a Rasp Pi or Arduino to access remotely and hit a reset switch.
Crypto's taken a beating this week... ETH still well above where it was a month ago, though. I'll stick it out.
I stopped caring about ROI in the short term after having done that in 2012 and 2014 and 2016. Having held onto those amounts since then I'd be up 100fold [assuming no selling between then and now]. I look at it as the cost of business. Unless I had a huge mining farm [2 cards doesn't count, lol], even like I did with my 12x 280x/290/290x farm years ago.
What I want to know is why my ETH mined varies so much. I will undulate from 1ETH to 1/2ETH and then back up and down. Such a spread.
I am less worried about the USD value of ETH and more interested in stacking ETH for the long term.
