Feeling Green

I’ve been researching Bitcoin mining over the past couple of weeks as we’ve been building The Bitcoin Manual site and it’s one part of the whole Bitcoin experience that I’d left largely untapped. However, fortune favours the brave and so I thought I’d take the plunge and do my tiny bit to support the Bitcoin network.

The basic premise of Bitcoin mining is that powerful computers called ASICS process all Bitcoin transactions that have been verified by nodes. Although this requires a lot of computing power, the majority of that power being supplied by renewable energy and this movement to renewable energy for mining will continue. It’s all about innovation in this space!

“Mined” Your Own Business

For a long time, it’s not been possible for normal people like us schmucks at TBM to get involved with mining due to the whole infrastructure set up and costs that are involved but there are companies out there now that allow anyone to dive in.

We have had some interesting discussions around mining in the Bitcoin Pioneer* Telegram group over the last month and one of the companies mentioned was Cyberian Mine.

Cyberian Mine

Jason Deane pointed me in the direction of Cyberian Mine due to their very “cool” model of allowing you to buy an ASIC and them doing all the leg work of setting it up, maintenance and repair if needed.

The German-Russian company has been around since 2018 and makes use of green energy hydropower stations in Siberia to power the ASICs, which are kept cool thanks to Siberia’s “nipply” cold temperatures.

Effectively, you are buying the “rights to services and computing power” that your ASIC generates, not the machine itself due to regulations but you can sell this right whenever you want to other customers in the marketplace. There is more information on their website and FAQ section so have a browse.

What’s Mined Is Yours

By all means, have a look around the website, follow them on Twitter and do your own due diligence before jumping in. There are upfront costs to buy the miner but the site shows what your earnings would be and from what I’ve seen, it will take you 11-16 months at time of writing to make your money back but you’re stacking sats so could easily be sooner.

I decided to get myself a new miner after doing some research, reading the site, seeing their social media, hearing others I know in the Bitcoin space mention them and within the same day, the miner was put online! Going to see how this one plays out folks and will keep you updated!

  1. Great find and glad to see more options for stacking sats that can offset volatility, I am keen to see how this performs versus the likes of a Compass mining or the Blockstream mining note. Would be great to see a comparison in sat stacking options and how investors can hedge if sat stacking is their aim

    1. Yes it’s already starting to bring in the sats over the last 3 days since the miner went online! The lower hash rate, cheaper ASICs and availability of service for retail made my decision for me really – the China shutdown has helped out a treat! It’s a shared pool with F2Pool so can get paid out every day if you have a Cobo wallet or if you don’t mind waiting, you get your sats when your balance reaches 0.005 BTC, which at current rate is about every 2-3 weeks.

      A comparison would be cool of the different models out there – I think Compass has a slightly different model and not sure how Blockstream’s mining services work – stack ASICs to stack sats could be the new order of the day!
