  1. Comment on the bamboo- I live in Kentucky, and there are large patches of native bamboo all around this area. Called River Cane (apparently they’ve recently decided that there’s also a distinct different version called Hill Cane) Arundinaria gigantea, and it can get to around 30 feet tall, in good conditions.

    If using native bamboo, I have one observation- they shrink a bit when cut, and if you cut them into the individual sections as you would for creating bee habitat, then you want to do that AFTER they’ve dried- do it before, and the open end will shrink and deform SEVERELY. Had a few almost close entirely.

    Assume any bamboo bought from a store is from out of the country unless labeled otherwise, or if you have learned how to differentiate them based on how the leaves attach to the stalk.

    Aside from that, lovely interview, excellent business. Nice website even.
    Funny story- we’ve had a bunch of mason bees nesting on our house; where the windowsill is, there’s a small section on the outside that forms a convenient tunnel for them, and they’ve nested there for years. First noticed this when I was sitting on a chair right next to a windowsill and a little black bee kept buzzing around right by my shoulder.

  2. Excellent interview! Fascinating info, and important. Thanks!

  3. On mining, miner gate works but it’s slow to pay out and relatively unreliable when you attempt to transfer coins.

    I’ve been bitcoin mining for a while using antminers. That’s dedicated ASICS hardware. I use BTC Pool. 1 Tera hash yields about $1.25 a day. An S5 miner does about a terahash. An s7 makes $5 a day, and S9 makes $15 a day. Right now an S7 costs about $400 on eBay. If you have ever 20 of them, you’re making $100 per day passively. That’s 20kWh to run it, so subtract that, and you’re at $50-$70 a day after an $8000 investment in hardware.

    You can rely on about a 6 month payoff on most ASICS setups. The catch is Bitcoin needs to keep going up to maintain this. If the price stabilizes, ROI drops as difficulty rises. You can make money doing this, but it’s a risk.

    Mining Ether is a fools game. When they move to proof of stake you become a virtual miner simply by having Ether. So you stand to gain more by buying it now and not having to pay off hardware before seeing a profit. When the ice age hits, all those people will swarm to monero for GPU hashing.
