By establishing expansive industrial mining infrastructure and consuming incredible amounts of electricity, these entities have positioned themselves at the forefront of the industry. Their dominance is further solidified by their ability to secure funding via traditional Wall Street mechanisms, such as shareholder dilution and convertible notes. This financial leverage affords them several advantages, including procuring large machine orders at prices below market rates, benefiting from reduced transmission and distribution costs, thanks to high-voltage infrastructure, implementing power procurement strategies tailored to bitcoin mining. Such centralization can sideline smaller players, often referred to colloquially as the "plebs", pushing them to the periphery of the industry. Bitcoin is meant to be a P2P decentralized network. Centralization of mining is a justified concern.    Bassload Update Turn Down for What!?   Nic Smid Blockpost   Nico Smid Immersion Article on Ungovernable Misfits   The Bugle Bugle - Paul Sztorc Runs for President to Promote BIP 300   Pleb Miner Small Builds and Innovation Travis Bitkle    Sat Stacking Pleb has a cool one board build   Altair Tech to have S19s single boards    D-central carries a Bitaxe kit and Pivotal Pleb Tech boards   Crypto Cloaks carries a number of DIY items as well   Winter is coming and everyone is getting ready with their space heaters and dusting off the sketchbooks and designs from previous years and getting back to work.
