Mining Zcash can be profitable, however, it can be difficult to calculate exactly how much money you're going to make. We've built this calculator to help you work it all out easily. It's designed to work wether you're using your own mining rig at home or you've opted for a cloud mining service. If you've picked a cloud mining service, input your initial contract fee, any maintenance fees there may be, along with any pool fees. If you're using your own rig, input your power costs in kw per hour (you can find this on an electricity bill or averages in your area can be found online if you're unsure) and hardware costs.
The results are estimated below. It will show your profit in four sections; daily, weekly, monthly and yearly. This is based on the difficulty level of Zcash, as well as the exchange rate and price of ZEC to USD. We will also show you the time, in days, it will take for you to break even, taking into account your initial contract fee for cloud mining or your hardware costs for your own rig.
