未成年兄妹靠一臺電腦“炒幣”,月入10萬

Chris Morris 2021年08月17日
兩人聽到父親談論加密貨幣崛起,從而激發了興趣。

美國達拉斯北邊郊區有一對創業精神十足的兄妹,每月收入高達32000美元。他們可不是靠著沿街賣檸檬水,而是以太坊(Ethereum)挖礦。

今年3月,14歲的伊什安?塔庫爾和9歲的妹妹安雅開始用一臺舊游戲電腦挖礦,兩人的大學基金也迅速增加。

據《達拉斯晨報》(Dallas Morning News)報道,第一個月兩人賺了1000美元,此后收入猛增。

兩人聽到父親談論加密貨幣崛起,從而激發了興趣,剛開始想投資加密貨幣可惜已經太貴。在YouTube和父親的幫助下,九年級的伊什安和四年級的安雅學會了挖礦。兩人將收入用于再投資,購買更多設備,由于今年夏天芯片遭遇短缺,就從附近電子商店購買(主要買顯卡)。

目前兩人用94塊處理器挖礦,每秒算力大約90億次。如果計算正確,就能夠得到加密貨幣。

兄妹二人給業務起名為Flifer Technologies,剛開始在車庫里,隨著業務發展,兩人將大部分礦機轉移到達拉斯市中心一處有空調的數據中心。不過,車庫里仍然留了30塊顯卡。

兩處挖礦點每月消耗電費約2500美元。兩人出售了一些以太坊來支付硬件、電費和數據中心租金等費用,選擇持有大部分以太坊,希望日后可以繼續增值。

根據Cointdesk的數據,以太坊今年價格大幅增長,自年初以來增長了334%。(財富中文網)

An enterprising brother-sister team in a North Dallas suburb are pulling down as much as $32,000 a month by eschewing the lemonade stand and focusing instead on mining Ethereum.

Ishaan Thakur, 14, and his sister Aanya, 9, have seen their college fund swell this year after they began mining in March with an old gaming computer.

That first month, they made $1,000, reports the Dallas Morning News. The numbers have soared since then.

With interest spurred after hearing their father talk about the rise of cryptocurrencies, the pair initially wanted to invest in crypto, but it was already too expensive, so with the help of YouTube and their father, the ninth-grader and fourth-grader learned how to mine. They’ve reinvested their earnings to buy additional equipment, signing up for supply updates (generally graphics cards) from nearby electronics stores to fight this summer’s chip shortage.

They currently have 94 processors mining—making about 9 billion guesses per second at codes. When they get it right, they’re rewarded with crypto.

Their business, which they named Flifer Technologies, was initially housed in their garage, but as it has grown, they moved most of their rigs to an air-conditioned data center in downtown Dallas. They keep 30 cards in the garage setup, however.

Between the two locations, they spend about $2,500 a month on energy bills. While they’ve sold some Ethereum to cover expenses like the hardware, power bill, and rent at the data center, they’re hanging onto the majority of it, hoping it continues to grow in value.

Ethereum has been on a tear this year, increasing in value by 334% since the start of the year, according to CoinDesk.
