Bob Van Valzah joined me for two calls that became a seven-part series on Digital Currencies & Bitcoin. To the left is Bob’s initial mining rig from 2010. To make it easier for folks we’ve merged all seven episodes together into this one large episode. Please note on several occasions throughout the podcast you’ll hear a brief snippet of music, this is an artifact of these originally being edited into episodes, sorry in advance for this audio nuisance. This podcast covers a considerable amount of material in just under two hours, but if you get through it you’ll have plenty to talk intelligently about Bitcoin and blockchains with your friends and coworkers: How did you get into bitcoin mining?
