1stMiningRig is Back and Kicking! – Plans for the Future + I Need Your Input!

First of all, let me apologize to you, my most loyal followers, for vanishing without prior notice. You guys have been following me for years and your feedback and support is what made this blog become bigger than I ever thought it would.

Why the Break?

Sadly, life gets on the way sometimes and those past months I honestly had neither the time or the willpower to keep posting content. You’ve heard that right. I didn’t leave because of the cryptocurrency market situation, or anything like that. In fact, it’s in the times of change when people seek advice and look for information the most. Wish I were there helping the mining community but I wasn’t.

During the break, I was still quietly mining and upgrading my equipment, trying new hardware and programs, and checking interesting projects.

Now that I’m Back

The idea is to bring the old 1stMiningRig back to life and start posting regular content that you, my dear readers, might find useful. There will be a change, though.

Over the years of keeping this blog, I realized that the most helpful topics were often brought up by you. It happened many times that one humble question in the comments section would make me create the best and most helpful content.

Which is why, I would love to know what topics you would want me to review. Maybe there’s a project you are uncertain about or a piece of equipment you’d want me to test for you. Benchmarks? Tests? I’d love to help you with any of the mentioned.

I will be obviously posting topic ideas I came up with too, however I will be giving your requests top priority.

Let’s get the conversation started! Please send me your requests in the comments section below:
