The investor has $1.5m invested in Bitcoin mining equipment, and our task was to build infrastructure around it to ensure maximum profitability.

A lot of boxes

This doesn’t look nice, but Bitcoin cloud mining equipment costs a lot, and total amount of investment is $1.5m!

This equipment has to work in the most efficient way possible – it needs to be safe from external intrusions, both real and virtual. It needs to be kept at an optimal temperature, not too high and not too low. It needs to be always in a functional state. The staff has to know everything about the equipment.

In addition to the infrastructure, the task was to build a cloud mining platform, to ensure higher return on investment for the investor.


We designed special containers for the mining equipment, that have zero additional moving parts. All the air goes through from one end to another. In case of cold weather, hot air from the output is recirculated to the intake.

We took cargo containers and removed sidewalls to have great ventilation capability. Inside we installed commutators with a mobile internet adapter, which allows to fully isolate the equipment from people around the container, plus making the container mobile – the only connection is a power cable.

We started building the FlyMining cloud mining platform in February, 2018 and finished about 5 months later, in July 2018. We maintain the platform until the current moment.

Apart from development and maintenance, we also do marketing. The platform has went through one redesign based on customer feedback, we also work with marketers, bloggers, social influencers.

We wrote a special tool in .Net that monitors the equipment 24×7, checks each machine for broken parts (missing fans, microchips) and emails the maintenance staff immediately.

We have our own dashboard that shows effectivity of mining and maintenance staff. The mining information is used for the cloud mining service, to calculate the profit of each investor. All the payments, payouts are calculated using the real banking software (our team had to learn accounting to be able to implement certain types of transactions).
