    Technically you could mine 24/7–365 days. Rain or sunshine…as long as you have the energy.

    Crypto Mining

    Excellent insight into the aspects of the crypto setup. Also entertaining on his personal business model of his home and land setups. Harnessing the abundant energy is the most important aspect of the deal. Of course mileage may vary on the land acquisitions and equipment.

    Crypto Mining

    Expensive? Yes! Going off the grid? Yes! $26,000 to mine one bitcoin in South Korea to $530 in Venezuela. No fossil fuel need to apply in the DR! Trust me its doable with less money and ingenuity if applied correctly. I just think this would make a fantastic industry for the DR. But of course...

    When will DR open for International travel??????

    NanSanPedro Don't worry about it ! It will work itself out. Besides, worrying is like a rocking chair, it gives you something to do but it won't get you anywhere. :) IMHO.... July 7th is the make or break date for travel from MIA to POP.

    Is 1 July the official date for reopening the tourism industry?

    My post was just based on and targeted more or less from a touristic point of view. Having lived full time in Sosua for a number of years, as an expat, I get it! It’s the “hamster on the wheel effect” daily routine. However it’s a different operation as a tourist. I’m privileged to travel the...

    Is 1 July the official date for reopening the tourism industry?

    Everyone seems to be in a rush to travel to the DR again, which is a joyous thing. However, one thing that keeps running through my mind is the quality of joy and fun one might expect during their time there. I am booked F/C from Texas/Florida/DR—R/T for two weeks latter part of July. I will...

The package arrived in Santiago on April 27. There it has been held hostage. I am in touch with Fedex everyday and they told...

    If you had purchased $1000.00 of Nortel stock one year ago, it would now be worth $49.00. With Enron, you would have had $16.50 left of the original $1000.00. With WorldCom, you would have had less than $5.00 left. If you had purchased $1000 of Delta Air Lines stock you would have $49.00...

    Hdtv conversion

    What affect the High Definition "HDTV" conversion will have on the DR? For those who do not utilize cable or satellite services will a converter box be necessary?
