I can respect that you want to keep it private.

What are you running? S9s or Avalon's?

Pure bitcoin only or do you mine other crypto's too?

We have S9s and T9s. All going strong. I heard that the Avalon is more reliable, I don't know. Haven't used it. But we haven't had any trouble with our S9s and T9s. We had 6x S7s which is also great, but only 4.7TH/s. But you can get it fairly cheap in SA now.

Luno is a South African company that has gone multinational- you can do deposits and withdrawals into local South African accounts. Pretty much fuss free.

You do need to register and Fica , they are fully licensed, and as I understand it Naspers has a large stake in them. (Owners of DSTV, Multichoice, tencent,)

I've been using them since 2013 they used to be called bit-x

There is a big premium being charged by most traders in SA on localbitcoins

 I give up on bit-x aka luno, after they charge me 0.0002btc on each mining reward deposit Sad

xapo is a good choice.  But we use both. We started with luno. But are exploring with xapo

Have you considered using alternative cooling method as opposed to the traditional air cooling? I'm using a storage room in my office for miners but the noise is sometimes unbearable even though we have servers running in the same room with nice temperatures.

Haven't yet, wasn't necessary. What cooling are you thinking about?

This is a good example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xo0g2dKPAcQ

It's a good way to improve efficiency but it seems risky for the boards as there's a chance of damaging it. Aside from that, it's quite a nice addition if you don't want to add more miners.

That looks risky. Best is to get fresh air in and the hot air directly out. That works for us. No fans, no aircon

Nice growth!  Have you moved to an industrial area?  300TH- you have to be getting close to the power limits at your house.  We found a warehouse with 800 amps of 480v in town and plan to move our mine there.

I don't know if you're still here but I really need to ask: what does SA means? Also, nice setup! Even tho the room feels a bit too small for me.

SA : South Africa, he even has it mentioned at location in his profile
Too bad he hasn't been active from Febrauary...
