Assuming

  • Hash Rate Futures contract maturing on 1 May 2021 is trading at P1 = 0.0823 BTC and contract maturing on 14 May 2021 at P2 = 0.0812 BTC

  • Cloud mining power of 1 PH/s for 1 to 28 May 2021 including electricity is offered at R = 0.1605 BTC

Bob should

  • Buy 1 PH/s of cloud mining power along with the electricity plan

  • Sell short Hash Rate Futures 1 contract maturing on 1 May 2021 and 1 contract maturing on 14 May 2021

Similar to calculation from previous example, Bob would receive total of P1 + P2 = 0.1635 BTC for block mining reward. The cost of the cloud mining plan was R = 0.1605 BTC. Note that besides block mining reward that Hash Rate Futures includes, Bob could earn additional block transaction fees with the cloud mining plan.
