The topic of cloud mining is a controversial topic and a lot of people are ignorant of what is, in this article I would like to remove the dust on this thorny topic in a simple and easy way.


What is Cloud Mining ?


Cloud mining is one of the great modern means of mining and monetizing cryptocurrencies. The traditional mining operation has become in need of a lot of money due to the high cost of mining equipment. Also, mining with graphics cards has become very expensive due to the high prices. Therefore, a reliable alternative solution appeared for mining Bitcoin and other digital currencies, specifically cloud mining.

This process allows you to buy computing power or hash power, and use it to mine the coin, to generate profits according to the computing power you subscribe to.

This process is performed by an intermediary “cloud mining company”. These companies build huge computing devices equipped for mining cryptocurrencies, after which anyone in the world is allowed to contribute a specified amount of money to these machines and thus can rent the mining power.

These companies get a certain percentage of your earnings for the subscription, that is, you receive fees for maintaining devices and equipment. You can also get the value of your subscription or the rent of the retail power, thus the company reaps the value of purchasing the device from the members and becomes their property. You can also get a percentage of member earnings from the mining process

Hello @besticofinder
I swear that I did not take it from this article. I searched for my homework, wrote it and re-translated it into English because I am an Arabic person.
