it seems pretty beefy but not well organised, but staying there is not healthy at all with 50°

i hope it's profitable...

What? It's high up in the Alps. It's always cold there, so the windows are open to keep them cool.

You obviously have the cooling under control, sort of, what are the electric costs there? I agree that 50C is plenty hot (well over 120F for us non-Celsius folks).

I don't actually know, it's a really old friends'. All I know is the apartment buildings have a set maintenance fee each month that you pay anyways. So, you can use up as much electricity as you want and always pay the same thing, mining or not. Very convenient.

There has to be more to that contract, like a certain kwh per month that can be done. Because in life everything isn't always free...

Nice setup but way too much cable everywhere. This is a big non-ptofessional farm.

But nice to see thinks like that!  Grin

Nope, there's nothing more. I'm not sure if this farm has free electricity, but many apartment complexes provide what I said. There's no catch.

They're going to notice if you're suddenly pulling $2000 in electricity per month...  Just because there is no catch in the contract, doesn't mean that they wont make a catch when they see the insanity

they must pay a fixed rate on electricity, therefore they can afford to do that for tenants

In the alps there is a lot of electricity generation going on due to all the rivers and streams that they can use to power the turbines.
Every time I go cycling in the alps I am amazed at how many power plants there are, EDF are the main ones.

I wouldn't be surpirsed if they offered locals either free or reduced price electricity given how much they make locally.

I thought mining was way too unprofitable from ages ago... Although this rig looks pretty cool.

*Sigh* Who will transact our money 10 years later?

I think if Bitcoin keeps making its way back up, mining can be more profitable. Maybe once it hits $1K+ again

If it doesn't...

I think the owner did his best to keep them separate. If they're too close, it can heat them up quicker and that's very bad. So space is good, since he had alot of space, he tried to use it to keep all machines cool.

Smart if you ask me.

A nice farm and there's no fire hazard since the space is empty and the only things that could catch a fire are the miners.
Is the farm secure? Looks like it's on a 2nd or 3rd floor of an old industrial building of some sort.

What do you mean by secure? Meaning, no robbers to come in a steal miners? lol. It is in a building.

Wow, that is crazy. In the comments on that page, I saw the link below, which is even crazier.

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.

unless it's on 3-4° floor, it wouldn't be so hard for a thief to steal something

better to lock everything there
