Back at the end of 2017, I decided to give it a try to hashflare.io bitcoin cloud mining contract. I started small, bought some 0.2 TH/s hashing power. As of June 2018, I've increased the total hashing power to 1.52 TH/s.
Now, despite this is some serious increase in less than a six months - my earnings made on Hashflare.io have decreased gradually actually. Before calling Hahflare.io a scam site, I still believe the decrease has happened because of the increased mining difficulty and of course the huge loss of the bitcoin price has seen since the December 2017.
Hashflare has lowered prices for cloud mining contracts in 2018 several times, see: Hashflare Prices Lowered, Is Cloud Mining Profitable Right Now?
In today's article, I decided to compare is it still profitable investing in hashflare.io cloud mining contracts or probably it's easier just to buy and hold cryptocurrency directly from exchanges.
