Bitcoin by the Box

Posted by Peter Poulin on December 4, 2017

Lately, I have been contemplating when we should come out of stealth mode, and let the crypto-currency mining community know what GRC is doing to help folks take advantage of this opportunity. GRC has acquired significant experience in the space by deploying our patented liquid immersion cooling technology for a number of Bitcoin miners. GRC’s ability to cool these powerful, heat-generating mining computers at over 100kw per rack proved to be most valuable – especially since our technology is extraordinarily power efficient. After all, low electricity cost is one of the key factors in achieving a profitable mining operation. Upon observing that many people wishing to participate in this gold rush have limited IT and Data Center operations experience, we decided to do something a little different. We have also been building containerized data centers for the Air Force, so we decided to mash together our crypto-currency experience with our containerized datacenter experience and voila – the HashTankTM was launched late this summer.  The HashTankTM is, first and foremost, a turn-key Bitcoin mining operation. We deliver to our customers a 40 foot ISO shipping container complete with 432 S9 Antminers, racks, power distribution, and cooling infrastructure. The customer just needs to provide a cement pad upon which we place the HashTankTM, as well as power, water, and internet connections. We’ve also formed a partnership with a power company that can provide low cost power rates.
