[Moved to:]


I saw another thread like this --I had the idea ages ago and would like to know a bit more information.

Pretty much, the other user seemed a bit 'incompetent', networking wise [no offense to him].

Some background information:

Name: Gene
Age: 18
Experience: I hold my CCNA. None in the workforce, I went to a technical school for 2 years for training in computer networks and computer repair.
Accomplishments: I took 9th in the Nation for network administration (Business  Professionals of America), 4th in the State of Ohio (Business Professionals of America), and 3rd in the State of Ohio (Skills USA).

What the setup would be:

A warehouse with industrial sized AC, keeping the place below 70 degrees F. During winter, fans would be blowing in the cold air, keeping it below 30 degrees F (dehumidifiers running as well).


What the cost would be:

Depending on the service you choose in my setup form, depends on the costs. In general, if you are a tech savy user, you'd probably be paying less than 50 dollars for keeping your computer running there.
kWatt/hour price: Probably around 6 cents.
Monthly storage price: Maybe around 30 dollars for your first rig, 20 dollars any rig after that.


The network:

Each customer will be put on their own VLAN [Virtual Network, network separated logically, but physically on the same lines]. Each VLAN is routed to the internet. The VLANs can NOT communicate with each other via Access Control Lists. The computers will be connected to a 10/100 megabit switch (48 port probably). The connection to the Internet will probably be on a business line from Time Warner (15 megabit down, 2 megabit up), plenty of space to mine with. If we are noticing major slow downs in the line, we can upgrade that as well.


How it works:

In the form, you fill out how you want me to mine. If you do send in your own machine, I can use preset options already installed. If you don't have a machine, the form will explain your options.
I'm sorry, but all it'd take is one person trying to tunnel their way out -- and doing illegal stuff to get the entire warehouse seized and shutdown. Meaning EVERYONE would lose their machines, which I wouldn't want to happen.

More information about the form is here, I will probably re-type it for my needs later:


Where is this 'form':

I am still designing the layout for easy to use, but with more advanced fields and options for those tech compent users.


Why do I even bother:

Just like you all, mining in an apartment/small house is a pain to say the least. Hard to keep the house cool, constantly blowing circuits. My electric company offers discounts on electricity for commercial lots -- the more you use, the cheaper it is. The fact of the matter is, my location is safe, reliable, and has a very very low natural disaster rate as well as crime rate. Let's just say, the last murder was 4 years ago or so, and the murder before that 60 some years before. The population isn't tiny, but it's not that large compared to some towns.


This post is mainly for my ideas, and gathering data. It'd be pointless to even consider setting up a bitcoin mining center if no one else uses it. My rigs wouldn't even cover the expenses.

Anyways, thanks for reading,


P.S. If you find any grammar/spelling mistakes, toss me a PM or post here. Thanks.

P.P.S: For making it to the bottom of the thread -- here you go, have a picture of one of my bunnies Smiley
(It's a big picture)
