Build a mining rig

Mining cryptos increased around 400x in the last couple years alone. The "cryptocurrency boom" happened in mid-April 2017. Since then BTC increased 1000%, ETH  5500%, LTC 4700%. This fueled the "crypto-mining boom" and rise in price of mining gear (GPU' and ASICS).

The cost of a mining rig  is between $3000 to $8000. It would take you a long time to get that money back, and it might not make sense to invest in mining at this moment, but if the price continue to rise, like last year, Then investing in a mining rig might not sound that crazy. Also, there is a different way to make your money back quicker with a method that I’ve been using to make profits fast. You can find this method in this article “Mining new coins to make a quick profit”.
