It could be honest to say that I entered the world of bitcoin mining by way of the backdoor. Previous to 2017, I’d had restricted publicity to Bitcoin. That modified once I was approached by an acquaintance who wanted entry to a big quantity of Ethereum mining gear. Since I’d spent the vast majority of my 30-year profession within the private pc trade, he hoped I’d be capable to leverage my community to get entry to the scarce GPUs wanted and to design an enterprise-class server to accommodate them. My staff and I have been ready to do that, which was the catalyst for the creation of Barefoot Mining, the corporate I now run. (Be aware to all Bitcoiners: We quickly shifted our focus to Bitcoin-only and have become the U.S. distributor for Bitfury.)
That is an opinion editorial by Bob Burnett, the founder and CEO of Barefoot Mining.
