Thanks to some great partnerships we have established with providers, as well as to our largescale purchases, Coinmint generally seeks a better price on our employed technology. Our aim is to buy the hardware at a price that is far cheaper than the market price.
What also bears great importance, considering the maintenance costs, is the storage of the miners: we have several farms in upstate New York, and each location was chosen to fulfill two important criteria: cheap electricity supply and little or no need for cooling.
There is a certain beauty in purchasing and setting up your own hardware, we know that. But doing so is only for those who are technically very skilled, can solve tricky complications, and generally see the fun in maintaining a complex construction rather than in earning profit with it.
