Mining; the basics:

You may have heard of mining for Bitcoin. You may be curious to try.

If you've never mined cryptocurrencies before then you need to know what it is you're doing, why, the risks involved and the potential upsides, before you spend thousands of pounds on dedicated hardware.

By the end of this session you'll be able to start mining on a small scale, using equipment you already own and you'll be able to start learning and understand how it works. In the event that you decide you want more dedicated equipment, contact me via Orion Rigs to discuss sourcing or building the right rig for you.
