Siblings Earn $30,000 A Month Mining Bitcoin

Fourteen-year-old Ishaan Thakur and his sister, 9-year-old Aanya, have spent the past few months setting up a lucrative mining operation. What started with a single computer in a room desk is now an entire business that has found a home in a rented, air-conditioned data center in downtown Dallas, Texas. Each month, the two siblings earn over $30,000 mining bitcoin and two other cryptocurrencies.

“We started because we wanted to learn something new about technology – and also make some money along the way,” Ishaan told CNBC. “We could have spent the entire summer playing video games, but instead we used our spare time to learn about technology.”

The two siblings started with curiosity. Ishaan started watching many YouTube videos and scraping the internet for resources on mining and the associated technologies, diving deep into the technicalities necessary for setting up a successive mining business.
