As Bitcoin prices surge and acceptance of the digital coin becomes more widespread, a multi-year rally seems increasingly likely. With Bitcoin’s emergence into the mainstream, cryptocurrency mining is drawing comparisons to another income-generating asset: real estate.

Just as traditional stores of value like gold are needing to make room as Bitcoin moves in, the common investment practice of real estate is one asset that may soon find itself competing with Bitcoin mining operations for investment dollars.

Start Getting a Higher Return on your Investment

The notion of investing in Bitcoin mining may prompt feelings of uncertainty for some, but look closer and there are some striking similarities between this investment and traditional real estate. Both are undeniably assets that can appreciate as their respective markets grow hot, often selling for the same as or more than what they were purchased for. And while both carry the potential for needing repairs, requiring an annual repair reserve at about 1-3% of their market price, both can also be insured. Property insurance is a common resource across a majority of homes in the United States; interestingly, Bitcoin mining equipment can also be insured through programs such as Wattum Care, a pioneering program which will be launching within the next few months.

While real estate remains a popular investment, it can quickly get complicated when taking into account additional expenses such as property taxes, lack of mobility, and its lack of depreciation ability on tax returns unless it is in an opportunity zone. Mining hardware, on the other hand, can be depreciated for its full sum in the first year or over 5 years and is mobile, offering flexibility in terms of not only where you mine, but how you mine.

Another factor is the reliance of real estate investors on rental incomes, which in itself can pose a cost risk in terms of preparing a home for tenants, as well as finding suitable tenants that will take care of the property and avoid further expenses. Further, the average annual return on investment (ROI) for rentals falls between 8% and 15%, whereas typical ROI from Bitcoin mining ranges from 20% to 100%. With the Biden administration’s proposed capital gains tax hike anticipated to increase annual tax rates to as much as 48% for those earning more than $1 million, real estate investments are hard pressed to remain the most profitable and secure solution.

A New Opportunity for Flexible and Secure Investments

Trusted for centuries as a vehicle for investment, land ownership is perceived by many to be highly secure, yet the real estate market has had its fair share of ups and downs. These fluctuations can be particularly problematic for purely speculative real estate investors. Bitcoin mining is safe from these waves as a regular stream of Bitcoin is produced regardless of its market price. Although rental income can be converted into Bitcoin almost instantly, many are unaware of this opportunity and thus miss out on its benefits. Should the prospect of investing in both real estate and Bitcoin mining interest you, the option of acquiring property and converting it into a Bitcoin mining colocation center is possible with data center building experts such as Colobuilders.

Bitcoin mining equipment is both relatively safe and potentially lucrative, projecting a sizable return while maximizing potential profits. Purchasing a miner, typically priced at less than $10,000, sets you up to mine Bitcoin for years to come. Locking in mining equipment at current day prices projects even faster returns, should the price of Bitcoin continue to rise, and if the current shortage is any indication, the reported spike in equipment demand will persist well into the new year.

As a reputable equipment reseller, Wattum has taken proactive steps to ensure a high availability of stock for both new and used mining rigs, with numerous shipments still set to arrive in the coming months, including the widely acclaimed Antminer S19j. Wattum’s team of experts is qualified to deliver management and hosting services across 6 facilities in North America and around the world, and offers mining pool opportunities for individual investors and mining farms alike. Through partner firm Colobuilders, Wattum retains over 35 years of data center design and building experience to enable clients with bigger dreams to outfit their own mining facilities and colocation centers.

Bitcoin mining farm management firm Wattum Management has confirmed their purchase of 2,400 AvalonMiner 1166 Pro rigs from Canaan ($CAN). Canaan, a Chinese manufacturer and ASIC mining pioneer, will collect $13 million in revenue from the sale.

Demonstrating both a high hashrate and efficiency, the AvalonMiner 1166 Pro units will be distributed to customers based in the United States. With over 500 units already in stock and ready to ship, Wattum will be receiving shipments containing the remaining 1,900 between June and August of 2021.

Details regarding the purchase:

  • Model: AvalonMiner 1166 Pro
  • Hashing Rate: 81TH/s
  • Quantity: 2,400
  • Power Consumption: 3400Watts
  • Power Efficiency: 42J/TH
  • Total Cost: $13,000,000+

AvalonMiner 1166 Pro Features:

  • Safety and Quality
  • Built-In AI Chip
  • Simple Deployment
  • Easy Maintenance
  • Unique Reinforcement Design

A Mining Equipment Milestone

This sale bolsters Wattum’s position as a leader in the cryptocurrency mining market, as inventory availability from reputable resellers is crucial in a time where mining equipment is sold out well into next year.

Wattum has established its reputation for both competitively priced equipment, dependable management and colocation services, the value of which has steadily increased amidst the soaring coin prices. With many large corporations buying out available miners and looking towards hosting facilities for support, Wattum continues to boast their own fully managed hosting facility in the United States.

Push the Limits of Firmware with Wattum

June 1, 2020

Arseniy Grusha, our Founder, and current CEO is the driving force behind Wattum’s current success. Arseniy started out as an individual miner and only in few years expanded his efforts into Multiple Industrial-Sized Mining operations, owning and managing three of the largest Mining farms in the United States (200+ PH in bitcoin and more than 1% whole ETH Networks). Arseniy was sure he could use his specialized knowledge and experience to help to create the Mining community, that surrounds Cryptocurrency, so, to do this very task — Wattum Management Inc. was founded in 2017.

Wattum is not only a company name but an idea, that has been built on the experience and integrity, founded by industry professionals, which helps to guide and develop individuals and businesses.

Wattum employs specialized software engineers that work on its firmware improvements — at the moment it’s Bitmain miners 17 series. Our dedicated software team has achieved the best ratio for energy and productivity on the market with the S17 gaining up to 35% profit increase up to 72 TH , with the T17 — our firmware has to achieve a 30% performance increase at 52–55 TH/s over the non-firmware version only achieving 42TH/s.

Since the launch of Wattum firmware modules in December 2019 in all of our US and Canadian based mining centers — our current track record with these innovative updates has also remained 99.9% stable with no downtime and no internal issues or errors.

Now you may wonder what about security and infrastructure?! Wattum firmware has onboard Antivirus and protection against Ransomware and Backdoor infiltration.

Wattum has many US constant partners that believe Wattums’ vision. With their help, Wattum experiences not only to provide the best possible service on the market but to also aim for higher improvements, push the limit with the firmware, and form the mining community as a whole.

We are always ready to answer on all your questions in Telegram.
