Building a Bitcoin mining rig can be complex. Compass Mining is here to simplify it to the point that literally anyone can participate in the decentralized computational process and add new blocks of transactions to the world’s No. 1 blockchain, whether at home or through one of 23 collaborating data centers in five different countries. As co-founder and CEO Whit Gibbs explains to Real Vision’s Elaine Ly, Compass Mining’s service enables those who don’t want to host a machine in their house to connect to a collaborating data center and receive mined Bitcoin directly into their wallets. Gibbs notes that Intel’s new mining machines could break up ASICS’s quasi-monopoly. He’s also bullish about the impact of President Joe Biden’s recent executive order on the ecosystem.
