If you read our rundown
of events, you know we ultimately decided on cloud mining over physical on-site hardware mining. Why? For two guys with full-time jobs, hardware mining
became to time-, power- and money-consuming. Every bitcoin we made was spent on buying power (electricity) or replacing hardware, all while trying to pay back the loan we made to buy the hardware in the first place! We decided that cloud mining, although (theoretically) less profitable, was more predictable.
After some trial and (sometimes expensive) error, we found these cloud mining providers to not only be legit, but profitable!
