Ep. 18 Fluid Dynamics and Bitcoin Mining

Watts & Blocks Podcast

On today's show, my guest is David Branscum. David is the CCO at Rebel Mining, Rebel is a professional bitcoin mining hosting company that is helping enterprise companies mine bitcoin using their world-class expertise and state-of-the-art infrastructure as simply or as customizable as they want. David is coming to the conversation with a wealth of knowledge in data centers, immersion technologies, and bitcoin mining. He has cut his teeth on many large scale projects and helped usher in institutional sized immersion bitcoin mining facilities.

During today’s show, David and I talk about how koi fish and aquaponics lead to David’s career path into bitcoin mining and immersion fluids; We do a deep dive on immersion bitcoin mining: the pros, the cons, and how someone should approach the business model; This leads us to talking in depth about whether or not overclocking and lifespan is a valid argument for immersion or is it just merely hype; We dig into Rebel Mining’s unique, but straight forward & simple, strategy for expanding their hosting footprint; and lastly we wrap up with David’s advice to new entrepreneurs looking to get into the bitcoin mining space. It is an understatement to say that I enjoyed this conversation, David and I always have a good time whenever we chat and this was no exception.

Today’s podcast is brought to you by our sponsor, the Texas Blockchain Council; a bitcoin-first nonprofit industry organization working to make Texas the jurisdiction of choice for bitcoin mining and blockchain innovation. They will be hosting North America’s premiere policy conference for the bitcoin and digital asset ecosystem on November 15-17 in Fort Worth Texas. For more information, please visit their website at
