This is an operational crypto mining facility built in shipping container and designed to ship internationally. This container was certified for loading on a container ship before purchase, there are no holes in the container. The design parameters were for portability and ease of maintenance – this version has 210 miners in operation.
It takes a while to get a facility up and running. Me and two partners, also experienced miners, bought this building and got everything operational for this mining facility. It is about 70% full already!
Just because a miner is an ASIC Miner does not mean that it is automatically the most profitable device available. Application-specific integrated circuits are made with a specific process technology, and the process technology is usually referred to by the smallest feature size of any of the transistors on the integrated circuit. One of the […]
For a given mining algorithm, there is definitely a technology progression. We can look back on the technology that was used to mine Bitcoin and see how it first started off as Central Processing Unit (CPU) mining, then it moved to Graphical Processing Unit (GPU) mining, then Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA), and then Application […]
In quality cryptocurrency projects like Bitcoin there is an upward price progression. More importantly, there is a price cycle that oscillates around the price progression. Plotted against time, a cycle with an upward progression looks like a sine wave with an ever increasing average value, which is what we see so far with the Bitcoin […]

I even have presentations prepared, in case someone wants to get a small group of people together. Guatemala City – Sunday […]
