Archived: Calculate Rewards with ethereumfaucet.info

This section describes how to calculate rewards with ethereumfaucet.info.

While my browser is generating hashes to make Ether money, let's calculate my reward and see how much I can make per hour.

Based on the statistics, here is how many hashes a can generate with my Chrome browser on my home computer with 4 threads.

```Hashrate: 18 hashes / second
= 1,080 hashes / minute
= 64,800 hashes / hour
```

Here is the payout rate given by ethereumfaucet.info:

```Payout rate: 9,100 gwei / 1,000,000 hashes
```

So my hour payout will be:

```Hourly payout: Hashrate * Payout rate
= (64,800 hashes / hour) * (9,100 gwei / 1,000,000 hashes)
= 589.68 gwei / hour
= 0.000000589.68 Ether / hour
```

Finally, convert to US dollars:

```Hourly payout in USD: Hourly payout * USD exchange rate
= (0.000000589.68 Ether / hour) * 700.00 USD / Ether
= 0.000412776 USD / hour
```

Too bad. My computer can only make 0.0004 USD per hour, or about 0.01 USD per day.

So I stopped the mining. It's not worth the effort!
