So, i just started this thing here and i do verrrry slowly get an idea of whats good and bad considering hard disks, SATA, USB etc.
when i heared about burstcoin and wanted to try it, i “learned” that burstcoin mining is all about disk space. so i got an external 8tb USB3 drive (wd mybook to be precise). But NOW i think, that was not quite a good choice not only is 8 TB quite low-end disk space for burstcoin mining, as i learnded very quickly (ok, im just starting, so thats not a real issue as i can extend my disk space when i need to - i think about 40tb for a real start);
i do also think now, that my choice of an external USB3 disk was bad, because its much slower than sata3 what gives me a disadvantage. if i take it out of its external case and put it directly in my pc, that would be quite better for mining, is that correct?
for upgrading my plot size i consider buying some of seagate barracuda 8tb (ST8000DM004) HDDs.
what can you recommend?
