Dave Carlson, who owns America’s bitcoin mining operation could be mining as much as $8 million worth of bitcoin every month. However, Dave dismisses this figure as ‘exaggeration’ and ‘fake news’ created by media.
With the mainstream media proceeding to paint bitcoin as modern age gold rush, Carlson’s story has been of particular interest, regardless of whether it hasn’t generally been put in the correct context.
To be fair, though, evaluations of his potential earnings don’t appear to be far-fetched when you consider he went from driving a $300 Honda to directing the largest bitcoin mining operation in America in simply under a year, and that bitcoin mining is still broadly misunderstood.
All things considered, when the facts are examined, his business is no less impressive.
To get to the truth of his story, CoinDesk addressed Carlson about the increased attention his Washington-based bitcoin mining operation (he refused to disclose the location) is getting, how he assembled the organization and how it earned $8m a month when bitcoin costs were close to their peak.
“I used to spend long hours configuring servers, assembling rigs, and connecting cables. I now have a technical team that covers assembly, deployment, facilities, optimization, and management. I invest the greater part of my energy dealing with the bigger issues the organization faces in regards to future development and operations.” said Carlson to sum up his business growth.
