Mining calculator

How much you earn depends on the current prize pool, the global hash rate and how many ASICs you have:

We start our calculation with expected return per emerald stack and then extrapolate to block stacks and how many ASICs we have:

We know that one emerald stack can fuel one ASIC for 64,000 seconds yielding 10 hash rate. [1]

This means we can mine for about 1067 minutes (~17.78 hours). Since the block reward is every 10 minutes, we have a chance to win in 106 block rewards.

Every block reward is 0.69% of the current prize pool which gets deducted from it. This means that 0 sats will be payed out over 106 block rewards. Under the given conditions, our chance to win a block reward is 1.00% with a single ASIC (1.00% using 1 ASICs). To simplify the calculation, let's assume we always win 1.00% of every block reward. [2]

Using this simplified model, we can therefore expect to win 0 sats per emerald stack, 0 sats per emerald block stack or 0 sats per 1 ASICs:

[1] the server consumes one emerald after 20k ticks and the server tickrate is 20 ticks per second: 0.05s/tick × 20k ticks × 64 = 64k seconds/stack

[2] In reality, we only win full block rewards and our total return depends on when we win: it is larger when we win early.
