How To Build Cryptocurrency Mining Shed | What I learned Mining @ Home
A year ago I wanted to mine cryptocurrency but with just a few crypto miners my basement was extremely loud and almost 100 degrees. I developed my plan on the Bitcointalk forum to build my own cryptocurrency mining shed.
Today I review how to build a crypto mining shed
Choosing where to put your cryptocurrency mining shed
Setting up (digging, and gravel) the location for your shed
Electric for mining 120v vs 240v and what I learned
Internet/Network for mining – running ethernet + switch
Mining farm heat management, intake vents + exhaust fans
What I learned and what I would do differently when building a cryptocurrency mining shed in my backyard!

  2. Have you ever thought about watercooling some of your builds that you plan on keeping for a long time? I've seen a couple and have been contemplating doing myself.

  3. Vosk, Great Vid ! Question: Do you get noise complaints from your neighbors (especially after midnight)? What is the db noise level outside your shed with those 3 attic fans running 24×7? Unfortunately for me, we have city by-laws that doesn't allow "ANY" noise above regular conversation level after midnight so I would have suggested that you add to your video that you should check with your local by-laws regulations before proceeding including if your house only has 100A box. Lucky you that you have 200A.

  4. The only way to use AC efficiently to cool is to ensure it is a closed system. Have vents blowing cool air in and return vents at the highest points so you are cooling in an efficient cycle. If you did that with a few box fans for more directional flow where you need it, you could have a pretty good and efficient cooling system. The added costs for that are not insignificant though, as you have to pay for the AC unit, ducting, insulation of the entire space, etc. can be done and it be efficient, but would require a longer ROI from the higher costs. The benefits would be you could maintain a much lower ambient temp, and this a lower running temp on your cards which could improve overall performance. Gotta do a cost benefit analysis though to go that route.

  5. Hello! You didn't show too much of the shed install area after it was dug out. I saw some cinder blocks there though. So I'm hoping it was retained correctly. You should be extremely careful about erosion. If there is not a structural retaining wall built around that garage, there should be. One good hurricane season (major or constant raining) will put your garage in eminent danger.

  6. love your work… look up a swamp cooler, water pumped over a frame with the air drawn thru the frame.
    creates high humidity but at the temps you would use it probably not your 1st concern much lower run costs… just an idea

  7. I just finished putting a 100 amp sub panel with 3 30 amp circuits in my garage. Cost me just under $600 including the permit. I’m in Raleigh NC.

  8. Unfortunately I live in a condo, but I am on the can't stop won't stop train so I upgraded my 50 amp to a (max city allowed) 100 amps + 8 ARC Fault Circuits totaling 3500 on the East Coast. Just upgraded a few weeks ago so I haven't really utilized much of it, but it's nice to turn on the AC and not worry about tripping 50 amp breaker!

  9. ON the Subject of Wifi, it should ALWAYS be avoided at all costs, because its a Microwave Source and very unhealthy for humans to be around. The seriousness of this is widely, " not understood " by very many people at large. The power density is too high and its a Toxic Waveform with many negative side effects. See the collected works of Barrie Trower.
    Wifi is very bad for children or even pre teens to be around and is known to cause Sterility.
    Cable everything up.
    MANY types of electronics do not do well in cold ambients including Antminers. 60-70F is advised with proper exhaust air or air exchange.
    Consider NOT using metric terms if you were born in the USA.
    If you are located in the Desert Southwest or similar climate with the correct wet bulb depression factor, you can run Evaporative Cooling.

  10. During the Winter looks like you could Duct the heat right back into your basement pretty easy also.
    Right into the "Cold Air Return" of your furnace so you get it all around your house.
    insulated 2-3FT Pipe/Ducting.
    Just a thought , Not sure how cold your winters get (we get -40)

  11. The air around my rigs gets about 10 degrees F hotter than the outside air. Is this considered good? I have a simple setup in the garage 5 fans and 4kw of rigs.

  12. GREAT SETUP!!!

    Need Some Smoke Detectors, Modifiable The Speaker/Buzzer So it Rings in your house. Run 2-3 of them!
    Wells Worth it.. Now problem with the top mounted fans.. And Fresh air… They may not go off unless a LARGE fire.
    That's why running 2-3 of them would be worth it.
    You can Also Get home Alarm system panels. Setup a "Alarm system with smoke / heat detector.
    you can make it call your phone. AND Also you can make them "Cut the power" to your main.
    Myself. I don't take ANY chance… With that air flow think how fast it can burn down.
    ALSO a CCTV thermal camera.. (IP CAMERA) You can set it to send or ring a alarm if temps of ANYTHING in view of the camera gets too high. you can do some pretty crazy stuff with them.

  13. have you looked at a wifi mesh alternative to address the poor wifi coverage in the house? just a thought – you could leave the wireless access point and attached ethernet switch in the mining shed, upgrading your wireless access point to a wifi mesh alternative (eero, orbi, luma, etc.) to provide better coverage in the house.

    thanks for the videos – they're great! please make sure miss vosk gets her date 🙂
