Ice Rock Mining is taking cryptocurrency to a whole new level. The Kazakhstan-based company aims to provide bitcoin to investors seeking to accumulate their cryptocurrency wealth. What makes Ice Rock Mining so unique is the company’s location. Situated in an old Soviet Union bunker, the bitcoin mining farm wants to provide cryptocurrency to longtime bitcoin users and newbies alike.
Ice Rock Mining CEO Malik Murzashev is the man behind the creative idea that sets the company apart. Energy consumption and cooling are two of the main barriers when mining bitcoin, but Murzashev and Ice Rock Mining have a plan to solve those problems. There answers lie underground in Kazakhstan, and it could be the game changer bitcoin advocates have been looking for. The bitcoin mining farm’s location inside an old Cold War bunker allows Ice Rock Mining to solve problems associated with cryptocurrency.
Murzashev recently sat down with Totalprestige Magazine to outline Ice Rock Mining’s bitcoin mining masterplan. It is a unique approach that has already won over many cryptocurrency holders.
Malik, can you please tell us know about Ice Rock Mining and the services you provide?
Ice Rock Mining is a commercial bitcoin mining farm which is based in Kazakhstan. We do bitcoin mining in a Soviet Union bunker. Our main goal in the mining business is that we deliver bitcoin mining to all the people who want to do it, but they don’t have any knowledge in the business. All that they need to do is to buy our tokens and have the Etherium wallet. It is a very simple idea which is good for everybody from newbies to pros.
Can you please tell us what some of the company highlights have been so far? Moreover, what are Ice Rock Mining’s goals and objectives?
Our strong point is that we have very cheap electricity which costs us three cents per kilowatt. We do not spend any money on the cooling of the ASICS as the cave holds a stable temperature within the whole year which is only 12 degrees Celsius.
We bring access to anybody who wants to mine bitcoin. It means that you can invest in our ICO at any amount of the money and you will have a share in our business.
Our objective is to build one of the biggest mining farms in the world and make it together with our backers. I think that synergy wins every time and ICO, for us, is the chance to make it happen.
Malik, what really sets Ice Rock Mining apart from competitors?
Nobody is mining bitcoin in such an interesting way like what we are doing. We are trying to bring high-tech into the underground, and at the same time to get a real efficiency from it. Ice Rock is the first mining farm which is working directly with the blockchain technologies to deliver the profits to our investors and everyone can see it for themselves.
We are spreading the profits via smart contract which is based on the Etherium network and gives to our investors very clear information about the distribution of the profits, and how much we mine from our farm. Nobody is doing it in the market right now, but we believe that in a few years it is going to be a mainstream for the industry.
Also, we have another strong point in our business model that we take 20% from the profit of our mining farm and we put this money in reinvestment which helps us make our farm bigger. On the other hand this an option that can help us make our mining farm work longer and it is going to be like a lifetime contract for our investors.
Please tell us about the ROCK2 Token and how can people invest in your company?
The ROCK2 token is a unique instrument. It gives the holder a share of our mining farm and it is a token which generates you a profit on it. If you hold a ROCK2 token in your wallet you can get a capital gain on it in Etherium which is distributed via the smart contract every week. The ROCK2 token is based on ERC-20 platform.
People can invest in our project on our website (icerockmining.io). Today, we apply only two currencies which are Bitcoin and Etherium. When the payment is made you will immediately receive a ROCK2 tokens from us.
What’s next for Ice Rock Mining?
The next step for us is to create the biggest collocation center where you can send your miner and we will handle everything on our side. You can get access to cheap electricity and other privileges no matter how many miners you have one or 100 pieces.
Malik, instinct versus expertise: Which is more important and why?
My opinion on this question is simple, it is instinct. I think that instinct can predict you a lot of the things in your life and if you can listen to it, you will have more success compared with expertise.
What is the most challenging part of your work?
Most challenging part is to predict what will go to the moon tomorrow. I mean you should analyze how the market will go and what coin will be the most profitable and more successful. When you are in the mining business, you should think forward about two years ahead.
What have you learned about yourself while running your business?
I understood one good point that if the people give you money, it means they trust you. We want to build a whole society around us who believe in our project and who are really passionate about the mining business.
Were you ever influenced by other entrepreneurs?
Yes, one of them is Richard Branson who doesn’t like to speak a lot. I was really impressed with his life and the book in which he wrote. Where he is trying to give you advice on life, what you should and what you shouldn’t do if you want to be a successful entrepreneur. I like his point that if you want to do something you should just go and do it.
What is a day in your life like?
I think it is almost the same as other entrepreneurs. I go to boxing, then I move to the office and I start my working day. We have a meeting with partners, Skype calls and all these boring things which we have in our daily life.
What makes you smile?
What scares you?
I’m afraid to miss opportunities and then regret it.
What has been your greatest achievement?
Family. I have a wife and a son. For me, they are my main achievement in my life. Sometimes business, money, connections don’t matter if you don’t have a meaning to life. For me, it is my family.
What is your secret talent?
To connect people to one group and make a great project which will bring all of us to new heights.
Which historical figure do you most admire?
For me, it is a Michael Jackson, because he was the king of the show. Nowadays, we don’t have so many talented and dedicated people like Michael Jackson, who had the best shows and the best songs of his time.
Do you have any hobbies?
I’m very interested in a watches. Especially about the history of each manufacturer who produced such piece of art. Did you ever see the watches of Marie-Antoinette?
What are you never without?
Cell phone. Nowadays, I can leave my jacket at home or anything else, but if I forgot the phone it is like you have lost everything in your life.
Can you tell us one of your favorite quotes?
First, they do not notice you, then they laugh at you, then they fight with you. And then you win.
What have you sacrificed for success?
What advice would you give to anyone starting a new business?
It is all about connections with the right people in this world. Try to find the right people who will share your passion with you, and who can help you achieve your goals in the right way.
