Btc Mining Podcast

Cassie and what’s halvening are the best!! In depth interviews with mining CEO’s about how they think about the mining business.

Finally a podcast for mining!

Mining is still the most opaque part of bitcoin. There are so many optimizations kept close to the vest which creates a very insular community.

I can’t wait to hear more stories from inside the mining community!
