WHY CHOOSE OUR BITCOIN MINING FARMS

YOU NO LONGER DEPEND ON THE COST OF ANY ONE ENERGY SOURCE

YOU NO LONGER DEPEND ON THE COST OF ANY ONE ENERGY SOURCE

EZ Smartboxes are fully mobile data centers. They’re easy to transport, and each Smartbox is built meeting all ISO standards. Because it meets all international public road transportation codes, you can haul your Bitcoin mining farm on a flatbed just like a shipping container.

Carry it to any source of affordable electricity anywhere in the world.

YOUR INVESTMENT IS COST EFFECTIVE AND CARRIES LESS RISK

YOUR INVESTMENT IS COST EFFECTIVE AND CARRIES LESS RISK

Investing in a warehouse type crypto mining farm connected to the grid is twice as expensive and several times riskier than investing in a mobile mining unit. Otherwise, your local power provider may increase the rate of electricity or ban crypto mining in your area, leaving all your infrastructure investment deadlocked.

FULL PLUG-AND-PLAY MINING OPERATIONS WITH ADDITIONAL OPTIONS

FULLY PLUG AND PLAY MINING OPERATIONS WITH ADDITIONAL OPTIONS

When you buy a mobile data center, you are partnering with EZ Blockchain. We help you develop a full crypto mining farm from scratch and can add management of your crypto mining farm for a small monthly fee.

You’ll sleep well knowing our team provides 24/7 miner hosting and management of your mining equipment.

COMFORTABLE TERMS AND CONDITIONS

COMFORTABLE TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Is cryptocurrency mining regulated?
Bitcoin to Come to America’s Oldest Bank

The custody bank plans to eventually treat digital currencies like any other asset.

The Bank of New York MellonCorp., the nation’s oldest bank, is making the leap into the market for Bitcoin, a sign of broader acceptance of the once-fringe digital currency.

Mastercard is bringing crypto onto its network

Crypto digital assets are becoming a more important part of the payments world.

People using cards to buy crypto assets, especially during Bitcoin's recent surge in value, convert them to traditional currencies for spending.

PayPal Launches New Service Enabling Users to Buy Cryptocurrency

It will enable cryptocurrency as a funding source for digital commerce at its 26 million merchants.

Paypal Receives conditional Bitlicense from New York State Department of Financial Services. The migration toward digital payments and digital representations of value continues to accelerate, driven by the COVID-19 pandemic and the increased interest in digital currencies from central banks and consumers.

Bitcoin mining is fully regulated by FinCen

Bitcoin mining is not considered money transmitting business according to FinCen memo of 2014.

The user is free to use the mined virtual currency or its equivalent for the user’s own purposes, such as to purchase real or virtual goods and services for the user’s own use.

Bitcoin mining is taxed as a regular income

The main reason Bitcoin can be considered as a safe investment is because the IRS has a clear guidance on how to tax Bitcoin income and other cryptocurrencies.

Under § 61, all gains or undeniable accessions to wealth, clearly realized, over which a taxpayer has complete dominion, are included in gross income.

Bitcoin trading risks are hedged with Bitcoin futures and Bitcoin options

In response to growing interest in cryptocurrencies and customer demand for tools to manage bitcoin exposure, CME options on Bitcoin futures (BTC) are now trading.

The value of options on Bitcoin futures is based on the regulated CME CF Bitcoin Reference Rate (BRR) and settles into actively traded Bitcoin futures.

Bitcoin becomes more adopted by the U.S.

The State of New York clearly outlines Bitcoin mining by issuing a license for bitcoin mining

In June 2015, the New York State Department of Financial Services (“DFS”) issued its virtual currency regulation, 23 NYCRR Part 200, under the New York Financial Services Law. Since 2015, under that “BitLicense” regulation or the limited purpose trust company provisions of the New York Banking Law, DFS has granted numerous virtual currency licenses and charters to ensure that New Yorkers have a well-regulated way to access the virtual currency marketplace and that New York remains at the center of technological innovation and forward-looking regulation.

Wyoming is the first and only state to have enacted legislation providing a comprehensive framework supportive of blockchain innovation.

Objective

A power generation company was looking for a solution to diversify its revenue and build a demand response system that could consume power at the off-peak hours.

Solution

EZ Blockchain redesigned the mobile data center with a unique shelving system and airflow system to bring its capacity up to 2.5 MWs, installing 720 x Bitmain S17 type miners. Our engineering team had to design a separate electrical room built from scratch to make the work of the electrical operations team simpler and safer. The design of the mobile data center was divided into 6 separate sections, each having its own autonomous electrical surge protection infrastructure to operate each section independently.

The company’s team developed a simple from an operational perspective but complex from an engineering perspective filter louver door in each section. This optimized the effort of changing filters on a constant basis, reducing the amount of labor hours needed to perform the work. 

Our HVAC engineers had to pick a special type of fan blades used for the HVAC cooling system to minimize the sound output from the fans in a 100% mode. In addition, a commercial VFD system was installed to optimize the fan RPM during night hours to minimize the noise when the temperature drops during the night.

Regulations that vary by state sometimes spark miners to move their operations. Sergii Gerasymovych was excited when his crypto company sold a big mining rig to an oil and gas operator with plans to mine Bitcoin in New Mexico. But when the company started to install the mobile rig, which burns natural gas that would otherwise be flared to power about 700 miners, they learned that New Mexico strictly regulated generators like the one in the mining rig.
