Mining as a Service: How to Get Your Money’s Worth

With the rise of cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum in recent years, crypto mining services have earned considerable attention. But getting the best value for your mining investment is about more than the sticker price of the service. As crypto mining has become more popular, investors have realized that pooling their efforts results in more steady profits. This has led to mining farms, large facilities dedicated to mining cryptocurrency and equipped to handle large amounts of electricity and heat.

Selecting a Mining Service

Over time, some very cheap services have emerged, ranging from $55 per kilowatt in China to $100 per kilowatt in the United States. This price might seem attractive at first, but it gets a little suspicious when you recognize that it costs around $95 per kilowatt just to properly equip a data centre with power and cooling.

For example, RekDeck once had a customer relocate 160 GPUs — worth more than a million US dollars — to our data centre from a cheap mining farm. The customer had bought the equipment brand new, but when we received it from the cheap farm, it smelled like urine and was full of chicken feathers inside, leading us to believe the equipment had been kept in someone’s barn. The lesson: with mining services, you get what you pay for.

By sending your equipment to a facility that doesn’t have proper airflow or cooling, you run the risk of your equipment being damaged beyond repair after only a fraction of its useful life. And even if your equipment still works, if it is constantly shutting off due to overheating, you are missing out on time that could be spent mining. Before you decide to invest your money into a mining service, make sure to visit their facility first.

Cloud Mining: Is It Worth the Hype?

Recently, online companies have been offering cloud mining, where instead of owning the mining equipment, you own a contract that mines the cryptocurrency of your choice for two years. Cloud mining can be quite convenient and sometimes profitable, but there are a few issues with it, the first one being that you don’t get the full value out of the equipment. GPUs usually have an expected life of about five years and can last even longer if cared for properly.

Another issue with cloud mining is that it is often based in relatively remote locations. How much money would you put into a company that has no transparency in a foreign country with no jurisdiction? Getting your money can be a hassle and if something goes wrong, you won’t have a lot of leverage.
