I'm keeping the indoor ones as they're free heating during the winter but all the rest are off.
out of curiosity have you looked into the viability of renting out GPU power for AI learning instead?
came across this idea yesterday while idly googling around, a single RTX 3090 seems to pay around $0.30 (USD) an hour for this, which is way more than a 3090 would get from mining eth at this point, even after the difficulty bomb delay which appears to have bumped up eth mining profits by about 20-25% (at least in the short term).
downsides are that it's not constant, you have to list your rig and wait for someone to pick up the contract. and you have to keep it running until the job is finished, can't start and stop it whenever you want, like you can with mining. which shouldn't be an issue for dedicated mining rigs, but probably prevents me from pursuing this at the moment, as sometimes i want to use my PC for other stuff.
still, could be a potential alternative for putting spare GPUs to work in the meantime whilst waiting for the crypto market to recover (if it ever does).
