Another large Washington state USA Bitcoin mining company.


In a perfect world where mining difficulty was lower, bitcoin prices were higher and a warehouse full of mining rigs could be run by one man, Dave Carlson, the owner of North America's largest bitcoin mining operation, could be earning $8m a month.

However, just like reports of bitcoin's death, reports of Carlson's personal earnings are, unfortunately for him, exaggerated.

With the mainstream media continuing to paint bitcoin as a modern-day gold rush, Carlson's rags-to-riches story has been of particular interest, even if it hasn't always been put in the proper context.

The media's job its to entertain and to make a living for themselves and their owners.

FWIW and clarity the quoted above is from the article, not myself.

The main thing I find interesting in this is the extent of concerns getting into the Bitcoin space. In this instance Carlson went from a small time in his basement operation to one of North America's biggest.

I wasn't sure how to make the item quoted distinct from your own comments, so I put it in quotation marks and hoped for the best. Sorry if anyone was mislead!
