CoinDesk Deputy Podcasts Producer Rob Mitchell learns the ins-and-outs of bitcoin mining containers by stepping into Foundry’s demo unit on exhibit at Consensus 2022. Todd Sharpe, Foundry’s director of tech ops engineering, explains the basics of mining containers, how the portable units can be deployed and what the future might bring for containerized mining. (Disclosure: Foundry is owned by CoinDesk parent Digital Currency Group.)
