    I'm leaning towards leveraging this soon. It seems a good way to potentially take advantage of crypto's volatility without needing to keep your attention on the market at all times.

    Is anybody here interested in the tech side of things? Do you mine or run nodes?

    I dabbled in mining before. The rewards just weren't there though, at least for desktop mining. You pretty much need a dedicated miner, I think (especially if you want to mine something other than a shitcoin).

    I split a mining rig with a few friends for a year or so back in 2017 + 18. Cost us £918 for for the PC, we made 3.2 eth over 14 months (worth £1240 then!) and then sold the PC for £400 (had free electric for the mining) so ended with a good chunk of profit. Not sure if any kept theirs to current prices but they'd be laughing now if they did. Not sure it would be viable to the same extent now though!

    Nice I’m still shitcoin mining. Trying to catch new projects at launch and stacking a few coins up before any serious hash power comes in. I’ve had varying levels of success and a few exit scams but it’s interesting watching projects just starting out.

    I built a dual rx580 PC in late 2017 and it is still a fairly capable gaming pc for when I’m not mining so quite happy with it! I wouldn’t mind a GPU upgrade at some point but they are like hens teeth again at the moment.

    As many of you have probably noticed, DeFi projects have been popular lately and a number of them have done very well, in some cases despite crippling performance issues (e.g. Uniswap due to the ETH congestion issues).

    I've made the decision to take a bit of a gamble on a new service that launched a short while ago: Wanswap. It's built on the Wanchain platform. The bit that sold me was that the transactions were very quick (seconds) and cost pennies at most.

    https://wanswap.finance/

    The WASP token is an interesting one. There was no premining and they've been distributing WASP tokens to those who have been adding liquidity to the Wanswap pools.

    The site is very well designed and easy to use. Coupled with the speed and low cost factors, I think Wanswap is poised to do very well in the coming weeks/months.

    Might be worth a look over if you have the tolerance for a bit of a calculated gamble. It's certainly on a put-your-house-on-it bet, but given the recent success of Uniswap, Sushiswap and others it isn't difficult to see a place for a fast, virtually zero cost defi service in the market.

    COSMOS might be worth looking into, Stargate launches in 5 days and will probably double the price. This is not financial advice.
