Building a 12 GPU Ethereum Mining Equipment From Scrape – Part 1: Ordering Details, Reinis Fischer
I love testing ideas and even more than just testing fresh ideas I love testing them using Ondergrens viable product treatment.
I’ve bot ter a crypto craze for a while already – began with buy and hold, added little speculative trades, attempted an ICO and now even considering to embark mining. Totally insane? Well, I can only agree!
Ter fact, that doesn’t even sound like mij – you see, I like buying and holding, I even love doing a few sway trades once te a while, but to run a mining equipment? Totally not mij. It sounds like a lotsbestemming of hassle to mij.
But still – kicking off a mining – is the latest crazy idea I’ve bot thinking lately. And here you go, just ordered some goodies from Amazon.

I didn’t order more cards – spil I wasgoed looking for a ondergrens viable product treatment, purchasing just the naked ondergrens to setup and run a mining equipment, at the begin with just one GPU. Straks, if things will turn out good, I project to add a fresh GPU once vanaf month, zuigeling of dollar cost averaging, the same treatment I’m using to buy coins once te a month, see: Dollar-Cost Averaging spil part of Cryptocurrency Portfolio . This time instead of buying more coins I project to buy more graphics cards. Sounds crazy? Very likely it is!
