Does any of you guys have experience with medium & large scale data center / mining operations?
I'm a VC from Europe currently investigating the market and trying to connect with professionals involved in the mining industry.
Open to partnerships with investors and IT engineers
Trying to determine if that ship has already sailed of if there are still opportunities out there
I'd like to see some numbers, ROI, IRR, etc.. and hear what is the minimum investment to get started in a meaningful way

I understand that as the time goes by mining becomes increasingly competitive and requires more and more ressources; therefore, there must be a rising investment threshold under which it is useless to operate. I need to determine what is it

We still need to assess the risk to return ratio of this venture, but the idea would be to throw in a few hundred grands to engineer, develop and test a sustainable and competitive system, and then if the projects proves itself successful, i would raise some serious money among my investors and scale the operation

I have for now a vague understanding of the business, but what i understand is that we need:

- low electricity prices with reliable supply
- reliable optic fiber network connectivity
- cool climate
- continuous supply chain of GPUs, ASICs and other required hardware
- local pool of qualified technicians
- political stability in operation country
- First class engineers to design and setup the system
- office representation in a world class / global city

I can find cheap industrial electricity under $0,03/kwh, cheap and secure warehouses, IT technicians and business zones with low to no taxes

infos, advices & contacts welcome
