Ep. 17 Bitcoin Mining Live from Miami

This episode is very special because not only did I sit down with my friend Kyle Herron but we were recording live from Miami for the bitcoin 2023 conference. We recorded this live on the rooftop pool and had an absolute blast. I think we could have recorded a whole other episode on more philosophical topics but we had to get to the Satoshi Action Benefit dinner that Cryptech Solutions hosted. Kyle is the COO at Frontier Mining. Frontier Mining is a bitcoin mining hosting provider company that has over 25 years of IT experience. They leverage the latest in large-scale mining infrastructure and work hand-in-hand with local governments to ensure that your miners are online, all the time. Kyle comes to this conversation with a very unique and wide spanning background as a serial entrepreneur, extensive experience in the music industry and has considerable exposure to the traditional data center industry.

During the show Kyle and I discuss his transition from music, entrepreneurship, and creativity into the world of technology and bitcoin mining; we dive into how Frontier Mining operates within the bitcoin mining ecosystem; we walk through the differences and similarities between a traditional data center and a bitcoin mining facility when it comes to power procurement; Kyle shares his insights on how traditional data centers are going to start emulating bitcoin mining facilities due to their unique cost saving operations; we discuss what edge computing is and how it will start to decentralize the traditional data center industry; and lastly we wrap up with how small towns are embracing the data center and bitcoin mining facilities as a way to usher in new age jobs to an otherwise stale work environment. As I said at the top, we were fortunate to be able to record this episode live from Bitcoin 2023 and kyle and I had an absolute blast recording this episode.
