Life Inside a Secret Chinese Bitcoin Mine

Subscribe to Motherboard Radio today! http://apple.co/1DWdc9d In October of last year Motherboard gained access to a massive, secretive Bitcoin mine housed within a repurposed factory in the Liaoning Province in rural northeast China. This is the infrastructure that keeps the digital currency’s decentralized network up and running, and its operators are profiting big time. The mine we visited is just one of six sites owned by a secretive group of four people, part of a colossal mining operation that, as of our visit, cumulatively generated 4,050 bitcoins a month, equivalent to a monthly gross of $1.5 million.

In making money off crypto, there are some popular notions some of which are correct and some, highly erroneous most especially the strategy of hodling. Holding your coins in itself may not be a bad idea but the emotions behind it lately is wrong and extremely dangerous because cryptocurrencies at this stage is highly speculative, unpredictable and generally a very new concept so as a smart investor, you have to find a way to gain on your coins by day trading and making the best off it. In day trading, you a betting an asset against the other in a pair and your prediction makes profit or loses. Predictions in financial trading are not guesses in the actual sense but intelligent, researched and well back up statement of the future action. With the right set of strategy, signals and experience, you can make predictions of as high as 98% accuracy. This is not as difficult as it seems if you understand the market very well, not being emotional and know the perfect entry point and exit point. People. There are far more experienced people who can guide you so you dont lose your funds but my strongest advice is never to trade using a Robot and also not to allow an account manager trade for you. The reason is simple and it is security. You dont want to lose your coins to a bad Bot or fraudulent Account Manager. You can easily know the ropes around crypto trading by following the signals and strategies of an expert trader because with his indications to buy and sell, and you placing your trades, you will get a better and quick understanding of the markets. Someone i would highly recommend for you especially beginners is Mr Sebastain Field. There is so much you will learn from him as you work with him. He has raised a lot from beginner to expert traders with hundreds of thousand of dollars in profit to show for it. His contact details is ( *( sebastainfield @ gmail com )* )

So this guy's driving a Mercedes on his way to show us his mining site, but his "relatively high paid" employees, sleep in a shit hole while they are at work. I bet their "relatively high" salary isn't that high, once you start digging into it.

It's a shame all the number crunching and problem solving done by miners couldn't be put to a better use, mapping DNA or something instead of doing random problems. I know that's not how it works, but it would be cool if it could be a happy side effect somehow.

Grubby bastards, no class just dirty money launderers treating staff like slaves, the obvious dark side of Cryptocurrencies. Now add in mafia, yakuza and other gangs and we have a filthy, greedy world coming down the track faster than ever before
devil356 (1 month ago)
Here is a summery to show you the scale of how much money they are currently making: If that mine was stilling generating 4050 bitcoins a month today, They would have been making $340,200,000,00 every year (before expenses). 4050 x $7000 x 12 Think about how much they would have been making at bitcoins peak price ($19,783,00). And imagine that they have SIX of these mining rigs! (Which he states at: 02:09) 4050 x 6=24300. 24300 x $7000 x 12 = $2,041,200,000,00 every year.

Sir Megallot (1 month ago)
The whole concept is relatively confusing... have thoudands of computers run algorithms to generate invisible money. He talks of a "reward..." for the completed algorithms... reward for what? What do the computations provide us with essentially? Are they providing scientists with valuable data? Do they serve a function in the operations of businesses? It almost doesn't seem like the ends justifies the means, but if you're making over a million dollars a month I suppose it does. I'm lost at what service the algorithmic computations provide us with though... I get that it generates money, but every other business structure in the world seems to have a definable good or service provided. What is the good or service provided by these algorithms?
Crazy Wolfgang (1 month ago)
With these computations the miners are securing the network, meaning no one can double spend their Bitcoin. To solve the double spending problem it's not an easy thing to do in decentralized systems and this is the service miners provide, protecting the network from the creations of new coins from thin air by double spending.
