We’re in the middle of a cryptocurrency bubble and a non-fungible token (NFT) craze. For context, the price of a Bitcoin (BTC) is bubbling around $56,000. The price of an Ether (ETH) is just over $1,700. That sounds bubbly, but this column is not about financial advice. I’m going to teach you, step by step, how to build a very small cryptocurrency mining operation so you can get a deeper understanding of the process. With this knowledge, you will be able to make some predictions about the future of cryptocurrencies, NFTs and the underlying blockchain technologies that enable them.
