Chinese Bitcoin farms: From scuzzy to sci-fi

Scott Earle

I've often wondered

Why build such things in places like Hong Kong (which is just south of the Tropic of Cancer), when you probably don't need a great internet connection but heat is a problem?

I'd suggest Svalbard or Franz Josef Land. You aren't going to draw any attention to yourself out there, and can use satellite connections. Power might be more difficult, but you could use generators. It's not like the noise is going to disturb anyone.

Or at least somewhere where there is power but it's really cold, like Siberia, Alaska or Yorkshire (kidding!). Building something like that in a warm climate is insane.
