Buy GPU or DOGE and trade?

Monday, February 17, 2014

I have been thinking about buying a new GPU for my scrypt based mining rig.  But I wonder if buying some DOGE and trading it would be best.  Below is a brief analysis between the two options.

Option 1 - buy 7950 for ~ $330
The estimated break even is 3.3 months using a $100/month profit mining estimate

Option 2 - buy $330 worth of DOGE
Dogecoin purchases about ~210000 coins using .5 BTC with BTC Trading at $635 as of 2/17/14

Option 1
After breaking even, I can continue to mine into the future only with the expense of electricity

Option 2
No time delay, execute immediately
No tinkering with hardware/software
No hardware failure risks

Option 1
Maybe the break even time takes longer if the DOGE decreases in profitability

Option 2
DOGE appreciation is not guaranteed
I can loose principal, therefore affecting my profitability

Conclusion:  I'm leaning toward buying a new GPU.  Do you agree with my analysis?
