Founder of Upstream Data: Encrypted mining is "the hardest industry in the world", a better option is to buy bitcoin

According to Steve Barbour, founder of Upstream Data, a trend in the ASIC mining industry is that Bitcoin's miners are more efficient than previous versions, forcing competitors to remain vigilant. There is a way to get rid of this situation, which does not include buying new mining equipment that is slightly more efficient at a higher price. Barbour said that encrypted mining is "the hardest industry in the world" and adds that if you can't solve the problem, a better option is to buy bitcoin and profit from it.
