What’s Going on Miners?>Welcome to the Hobbyist Miner Channel

Welcome back to the Hobbyist Miner Channel! We’re starting a new theme here on this channel – road trips together. It seems like these road trips are becoming a staple for us. In this article, we’ll be discussing a recent trip to pick up some GPUs for our growing mining farm, joining forces with another content creator and fellow miner, Red Fox Crypto.

Picking up GPUs – A Hobbyist Miner Road Trip

On this particular Saturday morning, we embarked on a journey from Pennsylvania to New Jersey, traveling for nearly four hours to pick up four graphics cards. This was the largest purchase made in one sitting, and we couldn’t be more excited.

The haul consisted of a Radeon RX 6600 and three GeForce GTX 1070 Tis, all of which would significantly improve the capabilities of the mining farm. We’ll take you along for the ride as we make our purchase and explore a fellow miner’s basement setup.

Meeting with Red Fox Crypto

Upon arrival at our destination, we were pleasantly surprised to be greeted by none other than Red Fox Crypto – a fellow content creator and mining enthusiast. We had never met in person, but we had already established a connection in the mining community.

Red Fox Crypto was gracious enough to sell us the graphics cards and even give us a tour of his crypto mining basement setup. This was an excellent opportunity to see not only another miner’s setup but also to gain insight into his mining strategies.

A Tour of Red Fox Crypto’s Basement Mining Setup

Red Fox Crypto’s basement is filled with GPU boxes – a testament to his dedication and love for mining. However, there is also an ever-growing to-do list of mining hardware yet to be put to good use. Time constraints and content creation have led to an accumulation of un-mined GPUs – NVIDIA RTX 3080s, 3080 Tis, and 3090s, all of which are eagerly waiting to be put to work.

The primary mining area is in a grow tent, with various rigs running different GPUs. The current setup includes NVIDIA RTX 3060s, 3070 Tis, 3060 Tis, 3080s, and AMD Radeon RX 5700s and 6700 XTs. The focus for Red Fox Crypto is on NVIDIA GPUs, although he is also dabbling in some AMD cards.

An additional mining setup is found in his garage, housing his beloved GTX 16 series cards. These include GTX 1660 Tis and 1660 Supers, which Red Fox Crypto praises for their stability and efficiency.

The Challenges and Future of Red Fox Crypto’s Mining Endeavors

With the winter months approaching, Red Fox Crypto is looking to continue expanding his mining operation, utilizing the cooler temperatures to allow more rigs to run openly in his basement. However, as it gets warmer, heat management will become a crucial factor in maintaining efficient mining operations.

The combination of limited space, lack of power infrastructure, and increasing heat generation will eventually lead to a breaking point for Red Fox Crypto. Fully aware of this, he is already considering potential solutions to future challenges, including moving in with the Hobbyist Miner to share resources and space.

Wrapping Up: The Continued Growth of the Mining Community

This road trip not only led to the acquisition of new GPUs but also highlighted the camaraderie and support within the mining community. Teaming up with fellow miners like Red Fox Crypto provides opportunities for sharing ideas, learning new strategies, and bolstering the overall mining ecosystem.

As we continue to grow our mining farms, we look forward to further collaboration and engagement with other miners and content creators. As always, if you enjoyed this article, be sure to like, subscribe, and join our respective Discord channels for even more GPU mining content.

Take care of yourself, take care of each other, and happy mining!

  1. This video was so wholesome! I loved watching Redfox close for your channel! Love how the community helps everyone out to grow and get better❤️

  2. As someone who also just got his first graphics card (a 1070 ti), I appreciate seeing more people using them. Makes me feel better about it

  3. Question? Once I set my wallet address in hiveos for a coin that i am mining, Do i ever have to change that address? Will it always payout to that address? Currently I have a payout pending in hiveon and i am just verifying that its going to go through.

  4. Imagine the DEA busting in because of the wattage used per day:
    They see the tents and be like "F YEAH WE FOUND A GRASS GROWER BOYS"
    Only to open the tents and find some harmless mining rigs hahaha

  5. i just finshed moving all 6 of my rigs into a 4×8 grow tent with 2 8in fans and a 3rd on a t-stat so if one fails. i have enough room to put a few more 8gpu rigs in there.

  6. I can't wait for ETH 2.0 to come about so I can afford GPUs again. People who say the miners will move to other coins are only partially right as I bet 50% (especially in places with higher electrical rates) will toss in the towel.
