Wow. What a year it’s been! 2016 was full of exciting news in the world of cryptocurrency: we’ve seen continued innovation amidst the blockchain; we’ve seen a steady growth of Bitcoin and increasing global acceptance of the currency; and of course, we’ve seen a growth of Genesis Mining in both our bitcoin farm hardware and customer base.
Before we get into the details, I wanted to take a moment and thank you: our valued customers. Your passion and support has allowed us to keep pushing the boundaries and excavating new frontiers in mining.
An amazing start to 2017 saw Bitcoin blitz past $1000 – nearing it’s highest point for the first time in three years! We’ve all heard the naysayers, newspapers, commentators and so-called experts declare Bitcoin dead, time and time again – but those of us who understand the technology, and the value it brings to the market (and the whole world) know that this steady increase is a sign of the growing confidence in cryptocurrency and blockchain technologies at large.
2016 also saw huge advancements for us as a company: we’ve summarized our biggest achievements in a recent blog post which you can find here. And last, but not least, we’ve launched a new affiliate system – complete with various tiers, an updated UI, and far bigger rewards. You can read more about the program here, and you can leave your feedback with our customer support – we’re always making improvements, and we welcome your suggestions and ideas!
That’s not all we have planned, of course, but 2017 is just beginning, and we’d hate to spoil the surprise. It’s going to be an exciting year, dear miners, and we’re looking forward to a whole new year of success.
Goodbye 2016 – Hello 2017! Onwards and upwards, to the moon!
