On today's episode I am joined by Juan Pinto and Theo Toukoumidis from Doctor Miner and Hash Market. It was great to get their take on Bitcoin mining in Venezuela.  Hearing their story, theirs some wild stuff going that's gone on in Venezuela.

They both basically high-tailed it and went to Europe for a year.  And now they're back, it's legal to mine Bitcoin in Venezuela and crypto is looked upon much more favorably than it was just a few years ago.  Follow Doctor Miner on Twitter:  https://twitter.com/doctorminer_ Learn More About Doctor Miner: https://doctorminer.com/ ----------------------------------------- Want the best news on Bitcoin, cryptocurrency, and mining?

Bitcoin Mining On Natural Gas w/ Sergii Gerasymovych
On today's episode I am joined by Sergii Gerasymovych of EZ Blockchain.   Sergii is a scrappy entrepreneur, and it was awesome to get to talk to him.  EZ Blockchain started out as an importer and exporter of hardware for mining and that grew into a hosting business.

And of course they have a heavy focus on the oil and natural gas industry. So this was a great conversation, I enjoyed it  a lot. Sergii is a authentic guy and you can hear it in the way he speaks.  I look forward to having him on the show again in the near future.  If you enjoyed this episode please take a moment to like and share this episode with a friend.
