Crypto Revolution - The mining

Room 32, 3rd floor

21st November, 12:00-13:00

Probably we’ve all heard about Bitcoin and CryptoCurrency but what are they really? Do they have any value? Can we trust them? Can we take part of the “Crypto Revolution”?
I will show you how you can be part of the Crypto network, what you need and how you can mine cryptocurrencies.
We will take a look into:

  • ASIC, CPU, VGA, FPGA mining
  • Linux VS Windows
  • Power consumption and heat dissipation
  • Pool mining VS Solo mining
  • Wallets

Disclaimer: Don’t try this at home unless you are ready take the risk of spending your nights with your miners :).

I’ve been working in the software industry for 14 years and I have been finding new challenges every day since.
Currently I get challenged every day at Rubrikk, working in the Big Data field, trying to create better algorithms capable of processing more and more data with lower hardware resources, and therefore lower budgets. However, in order to fulfill my thirst for challenges, I need to make my way through my journey in the hardware field as well, from time to time.

Keeping myself up to date with new technologies and scientific breakthroughs, is part of my daily quest.

I never take “NO” for an answer because my philosophy is that “anything is possible, it’s just a matter of time, passion and constant effort.
