Hello everyone,
I am teaching a comp sci class that has a bitcoin case study and the students need some real world experience. We have cobbled together a GPU miner (super low budget) but it obviously isnt mining BTC.
I would love to be able to get my hands on some OLD Sha-256 miners like the gridseed USB miners or any other unprofitable units. We already used up our budget on the sad looking GPU miners (old pcs with some 470s and 560s Smiley)

My goal is two fold.
1) Give them real world experience with understanding mining, mem pools, transactions, wallets, keys and more apart from just doing theory.
2) I want to give them each a wallet with a nominal amount of BTC so they can say they have their own wallet and can gain experience sending and receiving nominal amounts to each other. The more I can surprise then with the better Smiley I have already joked around that they may be able to buy a Lambo with what we earn...I then showed them

If I can get an old ASIC or 2 I can have them mining and also have some of the BTC go to a wallet that I start to show reveal the private key so that they can see who can figure it out first Smiley

I can cover shipping (either from the school or I will try to cover it myself) if anyone is able to support my 34 students in this endeavor please lmk. I am happy to share my school details with you as they will be shipped to the school anyway. Please PM me

PS - The USB miners would be great because they are low power and the school probably wont appreciate more than 1-2 older power hungry units running.

All the best

I have some old Ebit e9s and PSUs that I would ship you if you covered the cost of shipping and a few dollars for my time. They will be loud, heat your room, and are not profitable unless you have power at less than $0.07 USD.
You can PM me if you want.
It looks as though you are located in Dubai so shipping from the US may be cost prohibitive but if I would be happy to ship you a few as I think what you are doing is great! Cool
Let me know.
There are several members on here who could vouch for me if needed.

Regards,

Jason
