Can I make money mining Zcash?

A miner earns roughly .03 ZEC per block mined. Your profitability depends on operating costs and some other factors.

Zcash mining economics can be distilled down to three inputs: revenue, capital expenditures and operating costs. Miners currently earn .03 ZEC per block using specialized ASICs computer hardware, which can consume a lot of electricity. Your profits from mining will largely be down to the amount of Zcash you mine over an extended period of time, minus your investment into ASICs hardware and your operating costs (electricity). It’s important to source cheap electricity should you mine Zcash.
