The Sounds of Bubbles Bursting

At the risk of sounding a bit negative, let me give you a bit of an update to explain why I haven’t added much here recently. Bitcoin (and all crypto coins for that matter) appear to be a huge, huge, over-inflated bubble with nothing to support their real values. There, I said it. Sucks to say it straight out, like admitting finally that you are an alcoholic or have a drug problem. The crypto currency Read The Full Story Here

One Month In My Hashflare Review

Okay, so it’s been just about a month that I have been cloud mining with Hashflare. They were, in retrospect, my second choice behing Genesis Mining, which seems to have the highest reviews and all that. But Genesis Mining is literally out of stock on mining gear and likely will be for the forseeable future, and I didn’t want to wait three to 6 months to see if they restock. That said, I may still Read The Full Story Here

Bitcoin Price Rapidly Recedes and Other Bad News

It’s not been a great week so far. After Bitcoin hit 20k or there about last week, it’s been pretty much an endless parade of negative and near negative news. The result has been the bitcoin price USD dropping dramatically, in some exchanges getting as low as $14,000 before bouncing back a bit. As I type this, the price is 16910.01 US Dollar, but that is still about 15% off the top. Second bad news Read The Full Story Here

Updating From Bitcoin Mining

So it’s almost a week that I am mining for bitcoin with Hashflare (yes, my referral code again, please check it out!). While it took a while to get my cloud mining setup to run, now that it’s going, I have to say I am pretty darn satisfied at this point, but still nervous as a cat in the dog pound. Let’s start out with the good. As I mentioned in my previous coin mining Read The Full Story Here

Will I Finally Get to Go Mining?

It’s been more than a little bit of a slog. I thought I knew a lot about bitcoins and how the whole deal would work until I started actually turning over rocks, and found out that under the rocks were, well, more rocks. I have spent the last week or so turning as many of them over to try to find out what all is going on, all so I could go mining. When I Read The Full Story Here

Mining and the Problem Of Paying

Last time out I was talking about Cloud Mining and how I had chosen Hashflare as my first mining host. The price was right for a first small step, I wasn’t expecting to get rich but I figured hey, what the heck. However, the problem of paying almost kept me out of the game. The most common way to pay for cloud mining is bitcoin itself. Hashflare prices it’s stuff pretty good, and the conversion Read The Full Story Here

My Solution to Start is Cloud Mining

On my last post, I talked about how I wanted to get into bitcoin mining. I looked at my own mining rig, but the cost of parts and most importantly the cost of electricity locally was such that it wasn’t even close to working out. I would have to pay out of pocket every day to keep it running, so that was a non-starter. I considered other options, but there aren’t a lot out there. Read The Full Story Here
