Mining benchmarking
As far as I know, many miners are likely to have their own financial model of how their operations are doing, but there is not a standard one that could allow them to anonymously benchmark each other.

As in mining it is important not only how good you are doing but also how good others are doing I have the feeling this information could be interesting for the players in this industry. My intention with this form is to build something that can be useful for bitcoin somehow.

If you are anonymously willing to share this information with me or a part of it, you will know how good or bad your operations are being compared to others. I will not know who you are and I'm doing it in a google form so that I don't even have access to data that could be somehow used to ID you.

Please all monetary figures in USD. If other currency, please state which. If it sounds like a privacy breach, no problem, but I won't be able to take exchange rates into consideration. That would be a problem only if the exchange rate fluctuates significantly.

If you have several different operations that you'd like to model and don't want to go through the form again, please state relevant changes to the first operation in the paragraph where it asks you to do so at the end of the form. If you are not lazy and can do the form again, do it as many times as you'd like.

If you are participating, please let me know what features you'd find interesting to add to the information. If not, please let me know what could I add to make you change your opinion. Also any recommendation. This is a free service, I just want to know if there is interest and whether it is worth to keep working on this. *
Your answer
When did your mining operation start? As precise a date as possible. If you are not mining yet please state that it is still a plan that you want to evaluate
Your answer
Please let me know an overclocking factor. For example, if you overclock 20% for half a year, just write 10%. If no overclocking at all, 0% due to climate conditions, etc...
Your answer
If you use only one kind of miner, please write how many of them you have and which one it is exactly. If not sure about the exact model, write consumption and Th/s. If several models, please write how many of each and I'll get an average.
Your answer
Please let me know the entire cost of your operation, I mean, the initial investment including miners and whatever other necessary infrastructure you have built, like electrical installation, internet connection, genset, etc... If you paid in bitcoin, let me know in which date you paid so that I get that day's exchange rate
Your answer
Do you plan or do you already provide hosting services? If yes, can you say how much do you charge your customers? Thanks
Your answer
If you are mining with gas, please let me know the genset's depreciation schedule and its monthly costs of maintenance, whether a fix or variable rate depending on kwh for example.
Your answer
If with gas, if you know it, please let me know the number of Btu/scf or mmBtu/Nm3 of the gas that you are aware of.
Your answer
Besides the cost of genset maintenance, what is the monthly cost of maintaining the operation, whether a fix number or a variable one depending on revenues. For example, if there are salaries and commuting costs, internet connections,
Your answer
Please if with gas, let me know how powerful is your genset in kw and ideally how many Btu does it consume per hour and its efficiency.
Your answer
How much do you pay for every mmBtu or kwh. Please specify the unit, either USD/mmBtu or USD/kwh. If it is another currency please specify which (if that sounds like an anonimity breach, just state it in USD, although I won't be able to take exchange rate changes into consideration)
Your answer
Is there any kind of extra financial benefit thanks to getting rid of gas, or any other consideration that affects the profitability of your installation? For example, tax breaks. If yes please explain with an example how exactly your operation benefits from it so that I can put it into the model.
Your answer
Completely optional => If I find myself in trouble while customizing my model to your operation, is there any private enough way to contact you? Like fake twitter account, telegram, signal, etc...
Your answer
If there is a 2nd operation and you want to summarize it here, please state what changes from the 1st one. Otherwise please once you submit all this data, please go through the form a 2nd time.
