Perusahaan Bitcoin Asal Rusia Bangun Kantor di Dekat Kutub Utara


Kanalcoin.com –  Perusahaan Bitcoin asal Rusia, Bitcluster, membangun kantor penambangan milik mereka di dekat Kutub Utara. Wilayah yang digunakan oleh Bitcluster tepatnya di kota Norilsk di daerah Siberia. Hal tersebut dilakukan Bitcluster demi menghemat biaya listrik.

Perusahaan penambangan Bitcoin asal Rusia, Bitcluster, melakukan sebuah langkah mengejutkan pada akhir pekan ini. Dalam video dari Bloomberg yang dilansir Kanalcoin.com, kantor penambangan Bitcluster nampak berada di kota Norilsk.

Kota Norilsk sendiri merupakan wilayah yang masuk di daerah Siberia. Selain itu, Norilsk juga dikenal sebagai wilayah pemukiman yang berada paling utara di dunia. Dengan kata lain, kota Norilsk berada di dekat Kutub Utara.

Di kota Norilsk tidak hanya ada kantor penambangan yang dimiliki oleh Bitcluster, tetapi juga ada perusahaan tambang logam MMC Norilsk Nickel PJSC. Perusahaan tersebut sudah lama berada di sana dan merupakan produsen palladium terbesar di dunia.

Selain palladium, MMC Norilsk Nickel PJSC juga memproduksi nikel, tembaga, dan platinum dalam jumlah besar. Kali ini, Bitcluster juga membangun kantor mereka di sana.

Salah satu pendiri Bitcluster, Vitaly Borschenko, menyampaikan kalau kantor penambangan yang berada di Norilsk akan ditujukan untuk produksi secara global. Hal tersebut dikarenakan kondisi di Norilsk rupanya sangat mendukung untuk proses penambangan.

Alasannya adalah udara dingin yang ada di kota Norilsk nantinya akan mampu membantu mendinginkan proses penambangan yang selama ini membuat perangkat milik Bitcluster menjadi panas. Bitcluster kabarnya memanfaatkan Antminer S19 dan membangun pusat data modular untuk mengakomodasi perangkat ASIC di Norilsk.

Selain itu, Bitcluster memutuskan untuk membangun kantor penambangan di sana karena biaya listrik di Norilsk sangat murah. Pasalnya, harga listrik di Norilsk jauh lebih murah 25 persen dibandingkan tempat lain di Rusia.

Harga listrik di Norilsk sendiri hanya sekitar $0,039 atau sekitar Rp 552 per kWh. Harga yang sangat murah tersebut rupanya dikarenakan Norilsk memproduksi listrik mereka sendiri dengan menggunakan gas alam dan air sebagai pembangkitnya.

Sementara itu, kantor yang digunakan oleh Bitcluster merupakan salah satu pabrik milik Norilsk Nickel yang sudah tidak dipakai dan ditutup pada 2016 lalu.

“Tempat itu sempurna untuk penambangan kripto, dingin dan daerah tersebut memiliki sebuah catu daya yang tidak terkait dengan jaringan daya listrik Rusia mana pun,” ucap Borschenko seperti dilansir Kanalcoin.com dari News.Bitcoin.com.

Dengan demikian, Bitcluster akan menjadi pengonsumsi daya listrik terbesar kedua di kota Norilsk, setelah perusahaan pertambangan Norilsk Nickel. Bitcluster diperkirakan akan mampu menghasilkan bitcoin senilai $25 atau sekitar Rp 354 ribu per harinya.

Untuk membawa Antminers yang akan mereka gunakan nantinya, Bitcluster menggunakan kontainer yang akan menuju Norilsk. Antminers tersebut nantinya akan menyalurkan hashpower ke jaringan bitcoin.

The Hard Sell

Republished by Plato

The prices are low and the panic is high. Is this the time to sell?

If you’ve been around crypto for longer than a couple of months, you’re probably familiar with the feelings that come with your average market-wide correction.

Euphoria fizzling away as that first red candle starts dropping down, down, down. Confidence in a quick recovery giving way to sweaty-palmed anxiety as the correction passes the 10, 20, 30% mark. Is this the big one? We all know what happened on March 13th last year. Finger hovering over the “Sell” button, knowing that if you just pressed it this horrible feeling would go away.

And even worse are the recriminations. How could I have been so blind? How did I let this happen? Why didn’t I sell when the going was good? Will I ever feel joy again?

Unrealised profit and loss

Look, I’m not going to say I told you so, but if there has ever been a market in need of a correction it was the crypto market of the last two months. It wasn’t a question of if your alt was going to do a 50 or 100% day; it was a question of when. Meanwhile, Bitcoin basically tripled its 2017 all-time high over the course of eight weeks, making it (briefly) a trillion dollar asset.

It’s not that bitcoin doesn’t deserve to be in that August club, but more to point out that markets will always revert to the mean, no matter how compelling the background narrative might be. And in the same way that you don’t expect to see an elephant jump over a small apartment block, an asset of bitcoin’s size shouldn’t be tripling in size like it ain’t no thing. Especially not when it’s taken three long, hard years to get back to its previous peak.

Timing is everything

Here’s the thing though: in every other market that humanity has ever created, taking three years to make a new all-time high actually is perfectly reasonable, bordering on suspiciously fast. Investments aren’t supposed to be measured in days or weeks. They’re supposed to take years, if not decades to play out. But the speed, 24/7 relentlessness and hyper-visibility of the crypto markets means it’s very easy to lose sight of the bigger picture. People who bought in at the absolute peak of the last bubble are still up 250% – presuming that they had the patience to hold on for a measly three years.

Nonetheless, selling can produce a real and concrete advantage. Get out near the top and you might be able to buy back in close to the bottom, thereby compounding your gains. (Despite what the people of TikTok Investors would have you believe, this is far harder than it appears.)

More simply though, money is money and when assets are appreciating like crypto assets have recently that can mean getting ahead of your mortgage, or buying a car, or paying for a holiday for your family, or being able to cover rent for the next month. If what you’ve made could make a difference in your life, then it makes complete and total sense to sell some – even if you think the crypto market is going to keep on going up. As the old adage goes, no-one ever went poor from taking profits.

Respect the sell-out

That’s not an invitation or a suggestion to sell it all right now – a good rule of thumb is sell when it feels hard (i.e. on the way up) not when it’s easy (on the way down) – but more to start thinking about what your endgame is. What do you hope to gain from this bull run? How much is enough? And will you be strong enough to start getting out when you reach your target? (Also, on a more prosaic note, what would taking profits mean for your tax?)

These are questions without easy answers, but start planning now and you’re less likely to be swept up in the mania and delirium that marks the real, bloody and unmistakable end of the bull market. And until then? DIAMOND HANDS ENGAGE.
