Ep. 7 Bitcoin Mining in the Midwest

Before I get into the podcast details I do need to make a quick discloser: that I personally use Simple Mining for hosting some of my bitcoin mining servers and in the episode we talk about the hosting services that Simple Mining offers. I only ever recommend services or products that I personally use and I would highly recommend Simple Mining for your bitcoin mining hosting needs. This is not a paid advertisement, but please understand that there is a bias towards them due to my existing relationship.

On today's show, my guest is Adam Haynes. Adam is the CEO and Founder of Simple Mining, they are a white glove bitcoin mining hosting company that offers a wide range of services from server procurement, to hosting, to repairs. Adam is a serial entrepreneur who brings a wealth of knowledge of IT and running a business and our conversation today is wide ranging.

On today’s show, Adam and I will talk through how Adam got his start in bitcoin mining by operating GPU miners in the back of one of his cell phone repair facilities and from there scaled it up into a 10+ MW hosting facility, how Simple Mining has partnered with a local municipal power company for their first location and how they established that site on the power plant itself, we have some discussion on how the traditional data center space is paving the way for an attractive environment for bitcoin mining in the Midwest, and how there is a surprising amount of demand from both retail and institutional customers for bitcoin mining hosting services. I always enjoy my conversations with Adam and I am excited to share this conversation with you all, and so with that, I hope that you enjoy todays show with Adam Haynes.

Today’s podcast is brought to you by our sponsor, the Texas Blockchain Council; a bitcoin-first nonprofit industry organization working to make Texas the jurisdiction of choice for bitcoin mining and blockchain innovation. They will be hosting North America’s premiere policy conference for the bitcoin and digital asset ecosystem on November 15-17 in Fort Worth Texas.
