Benefits
FOR LOCAL COMMUNITIES

Directly contributed more than $500,000 per year to the local economy through purchases of local goods and services and electricity from the grid

EZ Blockchain employed local electrical contractors for the electrical engineering services and construction subcontractors.

We took part in local community social events educating 7th-grade kids about opportunities in the technology sector after graduation.

A local internet provider upgraded the main internet line in order to to provide the internet to our site.

We opened entry-level tech jobs.

Objective

The company’s objective was to test the rapid deployment of a crypto mining project using multiple models of mobile data centers in a remote area.

Different types of mobile data centers were chosen to compare the operational capacities of each mobile data center during all four seasons.

Challenges

The main challenges were associated with the remote location of the project.

The project goal was to find such a location that would be as close as possible to the power source to save the cost of connection and cables.

The substation was located in the farmland, therefore the land lot had to be developed from scratch in the middle of the cornfield.

No internet connection, no electrical infrastructure.

Solutions

EZ Blockchain carefully but quickly designed a project within a couple of days. We analyzed the internet provider market and decided to connect a cable internet with a cellular backup connection to achieve a fully redundant connection.

After consulting with local  internet providers, we hired local contractors to level and develop the lot and the utility company to install transformer infrastructure and connect to the grid.

All the work was managed by the company's project development and operations team.

Conclusion

Building Bitcoin mining operations in remote locations has always been our passion. There are many areas with affordable power sources all around the U.S. and the world. Those sources happen to be far from developed metropolitan areas and can be either in small towns or in far remote areas where there are abandoned manufacturing facilities or not fully utilized power grids.

By moving mobile data centers to such areas closer to the source of power, not only can we save costs of power, but we can also use Bitcoin mining power consumption as a tool to balance the grid, use wasted energy and create more infrastructure for the future businesses.
