Bitcoin/Litecoin Mining

I decided to create a couple of pages on my experiences mining Bitcoin/Litecoin and some information of my mining setup as well. The links are on the right side under the 'pages' menu.

Also, I just remembered I didn't mention where you can get some basic mining parts here on the island. While I haven't searched super extensively here, the Goodwill stores, the one off the Hwy 58 near Kadena and in Naha, have all the basic 12v power adapters. For example, PCIe 6-pin to Molex or SATA power split connectors, and every other configuration you might need. This will allow you to use every 12v power connection from your power supplies. They also have a wide-range of PSUs, video cards, and motherboards. I am sure you can find this stuff online a little cheaper, but once you factor in the shipping/taxes, and the "now" factor, in most cases you are better off getting that stuff at their stores. The only thing I can't find on the island though is PCIe x1 to x16 cables or adapters. I am guessing there might be a specialty shop on this island somewhere that might have them, but I can't find anything. If anyone knows where I can find these things here, please let me know!

Here is the link to the Goodwill's website...

  1. Greetings from Tokyo.
    Happy 2018.

    I am wondering if you are still mining in 2018?
    I have been doing well buying through exachanges and thought I would start a new hobby through mining.

    Please share any comments you may have.
    Thank you for your time and I enjoyed your blogs about mining in Japan.
