I remember reading an article about Bitcoin back around 2012. I thought it was FN nuts.
In 2015 a friend in CRE biz took me to a meeting about Crypto Currency. Crypto what I said? He said Crypto Currency. What the F is that??? He said come with me and find out so I did. Long story short I invested $20K into OneCoin, perhaps the biggest ponzi scheme in the history of the works. Ruja makes Bernie look like a Boy Scout. I managed to double my cash in about 3 years with a lot of work. Most people lost everything they put into it. IF I had put the same amount of money into Bitcoin it would be over $1.5 million today. Yes that’s correct It’s the kind of thing that can eat you alive. Make you wanna kick your dawg. But oh well. OneCoin had promised to go public on exchange back in 2016 so 5 years later nada and Ruja is long gone in hiding somewhere. Over the last year I saw Bitcoin go up and heard Tesla was allowing people to buy their cars with crypto and others as well so it got me thinking and here I am. I google crypto and low and behold I found VoskCoin. This kid was having a blast on YouTube with his dog and miners. Quit his dead end job. It made me feel if I could just go back in time I would be this guy. So I watched a bunch of his videos and began to learn what mining was about. The different miners. How to set them up. I began shopping for RTX 3080’s and they were all overpriced and a headache. So when Vosk did a YouTube on ASIC mining. It was a revelation. Power ? No problem I have an electric dryer plug. Money? No problem I have cash to buy a S19, I can build a sound box so I did. I bought a miner from Print Crypto and everything went well ( whew… it’s like the Wild West). I got the miner brand new in factory sealed condition and when I plugged it in works great. Watched the Vosk YouTube on how to set up a DeFi wallet, Crypto.com, set up the miner and plugs, and it works great. The problem is I miscalculated the electricity rates of Southern CA Edison. I didn’t realize the Tier 3 rate at over 40 cents a kWh!! So I am running a test this month to see profitability and planning on sending the miner to hosting somewhere. In the meantime if I had known about a KD2 would be perfect solution for me. At 850 watts and the current returns mining KDA holy shit!! Also just set up a coin base account and will be buying a Helium miner either a Bobcat 300 and wait 7 months to arrive or get Panther X2 and maybe 2 months to arrive??? Helium is looking really good if. If if. Not too many in your hex and able to get the antenna up high. Just checked a miner up the street from me with a 8 dbi antenna made $450 last month. Holy shit and these miners only cost about $500 bucks!! Will be looking at a Z15 or other lower wattage ASIC soon to buy once I send my S19 to a host. That’s it for now. That’s my story. Thank you Vosk. Thank you to the dawg. Thank you all. Power to people. Just mining my own business !!!
