Here is another interesting mining project that got our attention – HydroMiner. A mining project that tries to make crypto currency mining more Eco-friendly by using hydro power stations for generating the electricity used by mining rigs. We already know that there are some hydro power stations being used for large mining farms in Asia, but here the project aims to do it in Europe and more specificall in the Austrian Alps. An ambitious goal trying to expand the current mining capacity from 290 kW all the way up to 7 MW if the maximum goal of the upcoming ICO is reached. Today the project had its pre-sale and it ended at just about 36 minutes according to the official information rising 1500 ETH with the actual token sale (H2O Token) starting on October 3rd and running for a month. You can check the HydroMiner Whitepaper here for more details and detailed description of the project.

Hydro power is generally thought to be one of the most effective and lowest-cost renewable energy resources. It is environmentally friendly, carbon-neutral and natural. Hydro power allows to manage resources sustainably and enables low-emission production and it is also simple, controllable and has an excellent track record. Using hydro power stations in the Alps region one of the lowest prices per kilo Watt in Europe can be achieved, bringing the costs for the mining operation further down. Further cost savings can be realized by using the cold water for cooling the mining equipment, so no extra electricity costs for cooling. Where possible, mining equipment is built inside standard sea freight containers. The advantage is that containers can easily be assembled in once place and then taken to the hydro power station, in addition, the container can be moved to another location very quickly if needed, sometimes depending on water levels or the need for extensive maintenance to the power station’s turbines.

As you know we are not big on ICOs, but there are some that actually do catch our attention, especially ones that are related to mining and the HydroMiner project is one of those where we see a good potential. Of course with all such projects looking for funding via ICOs there is risk, so while we can point you to check out the project in details we are not going to be giving any investment advice – it is up to you to decide. We are just sharing the information about HydroMiner as a new and promising project to bring an alternative to traditional cloud mining options already available. An alternative that tries to be more efficient and Eco-friendly and not just focusing on bringing profits to its investors, even though most miners focus on profits the most.

With the user interest in Monero (XMR) peaking up in the last couple of months it is no wonder that we are now starting to see cloud mining services like Genesis Mining starting to offer cloud contracts for that crypto currency as well. The just announced Monero (XMR) cloud mining offers using the CryptoNight algorithm start at $33.99 USD for 30 H/s, then go for $999 USD for 900 H/s and $2899 USD for 2700 H/s as well as come with an option for any custom hashrate of course. The XMR cloud mining contracts are for 2 year period of time with all costs included in the price of the hahsrate, so no need to pay any extra maintenance fees or anything else for the duration of the mining contract. You can also use our special discount code CryptoMiningBlog5 to get some extra discount and get even better price should you decide to purchase an Monero cloud mining contract from the company. As usual with cloud mining offers, do the math first and the decide should you take up an offer or not.

The cloud mining provider Geneis Mining has started offering Ethereum cloud mining contracts again after they were not available for a couple of months with the focus more on ZCash cloud mining with GPUs. The new mining contracts are available at a lower price and with an extended 2 Years period with no additional mining fees (everything is included in the price you pay for the hashrate). There is of course a clause in the contract saying that in case Ethereum switches to Proof of Stake (POS) before the contract period ends your hashrate will not disappear, but will instead be switched to the most profitable algorithm to mine at that point of time. Initially we expected to see Ethereum (ETH) switch to POS at some point this year, but this will most likely be delayed and no official date for the switch has been announced yet… and the interest and price of Ethereum has been going up lately once more.

You can currently get 1 MHS Ethereum cloud mining hashrate for $29.99 USD, 30 MHS for $869 USD of 100 MHS for $2799 USD as a preset packages or any custom hashrate in between with discounts for the more you purchase. The Ethereum cloud mining contracts are with a duration of 2 years and there is no maintenance fee, everything is included in the price you pay for the hashrate. You can also use our special discount code CryptoMiningBlog5 to get some extra discount and get even better price should you decide to purchase an Ethereum cloud mining contract from the company.
