Since the inception of bitcoin back in 2009, many changes have taken place in the cryptocurrency mining landscape. Mining hardware has evolved drastically, accompanied by exponential increases in mining difficulty. You could say that cryptocurrency mining isn't what it used to be. Especially if we take into account the bear market lived throughout 2018, which has greatly diminished mining returns. However, MiningSky seems to have not been phased by the prolonged crypto winter.
