In 2015, PODMines began hosting cryptocurrency miners.
Mining for cryptocurrency is the competitive process that verifies and adds new transactions to the blockchain for maintaining that same cryptocurrency. The miner who wins the competition gets rewarded with some amount of the currency and/or transaction fees. New currencies come online all the time. Regular computers or computers with high-end GPUs can be used to mine for certain cryptocurrency rewards like Bitcoin. Anyone can purchase specialized miner hardware and connect to the Internet and enjoy mining for cryptocurrency.
Mining for cryptocurrency like Bitcoin and Ethereum requires the use of specific computer equipment. These are often referred to as ASIC machines or GPU / “rig” mining machines. PODMines can work with you to buy mining equipment if you are interested in mining for cryptocurrency, rather than buying it off an exchange.
PODMines customers run their mining equipment within an exterior or interior mining pod, providing protection from inclement weather, ambient air flow, electricity, bandwidth, 24x7 camera monitoring / key card access, and helping hands during normal business hours.
Illinois location is open, and additional location launches soon.
PODMines exterior mining infrastructure pods are pre-built pods designed for the express purpose of long-term cryptocurrency mining in an exterior environment. There are two main types of mining devices that miners can use – ASIC and GPU. Our exterior mining infrastructure pods offer a number of amenities and can be purpose built to house your specific cryptocurrency mining equipment.
If you have invested more than $1,000,000.00 in mining equipment already, consider purchasing one of our mobile mining pods, that can be deployed anywhere in or outside of the United States.
