About US

MiningStore's Story

MiningStore is a U.S. based mining company that has been mining cryptocurrencies for over four years. Begining with a 300 GPU setup and mining over 500 Ethereum per day, we’ve seen the industry develop and quickly weed out inefficient and expensive mining operations. 

The result of 2018’s bear-market was an opportunity to analyze and fortify our mining strategy, leading us to redirect our infrastructure towards mobilized deployments, allowing us to seek out extremely low-cost stranded or excess energy.

Since our first mobile mining container deployment in December of 2018,  we’ve established strong partnerships with North American utility providers and are actively deploying infrastructure to various power sites.

Join us on our journey to create a fricitonless mining solution accessible to all.

Experienced Team

Strategic Partnerships

Our Mission

Our mission is to create an open financial system for the world.

An open financial system is one that is not controlled by any one country or company (just like the internet did for distributing information). We think this is the highest leverage way to bring about more economic freedom, innovation, efficiency, and equality of opportunity in the world. We have a plan to get there.

  • Imagine if every payment in the world was as fast, cheap, and global as sending an email.
  • Imagine if anyone who had an idea for a product could have customers all over the world from day one.
  • Imagine if anyone with a smartphone had access to the same financial services we enjoy in the developed world.

An open financial system can be a great equalizer and lift billions out of poverty while accelerating the pace of innovation around the world. This is the best way we know to change the world.
