The Blockstream Mining colocation service provides a turnkey solution for businesses to operate and remotely manage their mining equipment:
- Logistics: Our experienced team can help arrange the international logistics to ensure safe shipment of mining equipment to our facilities.
- Installation: Our facilities’ power and networking infrastructure have been custom-built for fast deployment and maximum reliability.
- Operation: Miners can be managed remotely via the Blockstream Mining control panel, delivering real-time analytics and control over each device’s operation.
- Support: On-site technicians will keep your miners running and promptly deal with any updates or maintenance when required.
Currently, Blockstream Mining is tailored to enterprise and institutional customers, but soon we’ll be expanding our options to support small businesses and individuals, along with additional services – keep an eye out for updates!
Alongside the Blockstream Mining colocation service, we’re excited to reveal Blockstream Pool, the world’s first production mining pool utilizing the BetterHash protocol. BetterHash is an improved mining pool protocol that gives individual miners the ability to control which Bitcoin transactions to include in their newly mined blocks. As a result, the Bitcoin network becomes more decentralized and censorship resistant as operators of large pools no longer centrally determine which transactions to include into blocks.
The Blockstream Pool has been running on Testnet for over a year and is initially available to Blockstream Mining customers. We will expand to a wider audience over time as we continue to work towards further decentralization. We look forward to open collaboration on pool protocol standards.

You’ve probably heard about Bitcoin on the news or heard it being discussed by your friends or colleagues. How come the price keeps changing? Is Bitcoin a good investment? How does it even have value? Why do people keep talking about it like it’s going to change the world?
The Little Bitcoin Book tells the story of what’s wrong with money today, and why Bitcoin was invented to provide an alternative to the current system. It describes in simple terms what Bitcoin is, how it works, why it’s valuable, and how it affects individual freedom and opportunities of people everywhere — from Nigeria to the Philippines to Venezuela to the United States. This book also includes a Q & A section with some of the most frequently asked questions about Bitcoin.
