Inside the World of a Crypto Mining Farm: An Exclusive Tour

In today’s article, we’re going to delve into the fascinating world of solo Bitcoin mining. We’ll explore the hardware I’m currently using and discuss some old hardware I’d intend to repurpose. In addition, we’re going to look at a way to increase the chances of winning what I like to call the ‘solo Bitcoin lottery’. So, buckle up and get ready for an adventurous journey in the world of Bitcoin mining.


Our article today is sponsored by the team over at With crypto mining hardware prices plummeting, it’s crucial to find a trustworthy online store for your Asic purchases. No matter what brand you’re looking for, Asic Marketplace has got you covered with some of the most competitive pricing on the market. What’s more, you can even make your payment using cryptocurrency directly on their store. Use the discount code the ‘obvious Miner’ at checkout to save $50.

Hardware Components and their Role

Before we proceed, do you remember the device called ‘heatbit’? One of the intriguing aspects of it is its dual functionality – it serves as a heater and at the same time mines Bitcoin. Although using heatbit has been a nightmare in the past, some parts can still be reemployed for solo Bitcoin mining. The Asic behind the machine is what we particularly need for this project.

Current Hardware Set-up

By now, you must be intrigued to know what sort of hardware I’m leveraging for solo Bitcoin mining. Here’s an overview: I’m using a Mars Lander and a device called the ‘Gecko science Terminus R 909’. While the Mars Lander has a relatively simple built-in miner, the real horsepower comes from the Terminus. Though it could run independently, plugging it into the Mars Lander significantly boosts the hash rate.

The Heatbit Project

So, coming back to my project with the heatbit, the actual Asic within it is what interests me. My aim is to enhance my current setup by adding this Asic to my solo Bitcoin mining ‘fleet’. This expansion will not only increase my hash rate but also increase the likelihood of hitting a Bitcoin block – thus, potentially winning the ‘solo Bitcoin lottery’.

Solo Bitcoin Mining – A ‘Gambling’ Game?

You might naturally wonder – is solo Bitcoin mining profitable? The straightforward answer is – not daily. It doesn’t churn out profit unless you hit a solo Bitcoin block, which isn’t a common occurrence. However, it’s interesting to note that the comparison of solo Bitcoin mining to gambling or playing the lottery, isn’t entirely correct. Unlike gambling or lottery, where your ‘game’ ends upon losing, in solo Bitcoin mining, you’re constantly in the game, trying to hit a Bitcoin block, as long as your hardware is running.

Final Thoughts

To wrap up, solo Bitcoin mining might sound like playing the lottery, but it’s much more than that. It’s a risky yet exciting endeavour that combines the thrills of a ‘game’ with the potential for financial return. Please note that this is not financial advice, and you should only invest what you’re comfortable potentially losing. Crypto mining can indeed be relegated to fun and tinkering, especially during a bear market, making it an exciting and educational hobby. So go ahead and try it out and immerse yourself in this intriguing world.

  1. Not saying solo mining but mining in general. Where would you say for someone to start with a budget around $250-500? I’ll be able to get more and better stuff down the road a few months just trying to get going somehow anyway that will make money. Electric isn’t an issue.

  2. So can you pool multiple miners to your solo mining, or does each miner have to mine separately?
    I want to put my S9, S19, and Futurebit all to solo mine as one combined hashrate

  3. I have been running three S19 "s for the last year and have thought about solo mining for a while. What do you think the chances are? Would you do a video on exactly how to set up the machines for solo mining?

  4. THM awesome 👏 you got that bad boy going, yeah 600w is like $40 per month depending of your electric rate that’s not bad for a monthly lottery ticket and I know you’ll hit a block with 63 years, if not that’s 30k in lottery ticket, BTW I’ll DM you, how much for the external fan, I think I can make it work.

  5. Braiins is awesome! My next project is to put it on my S19J Pro+. I first used Braiins on my S9's a few years ago and ran them on 120v outlets so I kept them around 1000 watts. There is a dev fee but if you mine to Braiins pool it gets refunded with each block
