Is Gorilla Pool the coolest company in Bitcoin? According to its Head of ASICs, Kevin Alkema, it just might be. In an interview with CoinGeek Backstage, he talks about what sets the company apart and how it’s providing end-to-end ASIC mining solutions in the BSV blockchain space.
Gorilla Pool has shot up to become one of the most fundamental players in the BSV blockchain transaction processing ecosystem. It allows anyone to dive into the field without the complexities of purchasing, shipping, setting up, and maintaining mining rigs.
Alkema was at the London Blockchain Conference, where he talked to attendees about ASIC mining and introduced them to Gorilla Pool’s products. CoinGeek Backstage reporter Jon Southurst caught up with him on the sidelines of the conference to talk about the critical role the company has been playing and why it’s the coolest company in the space.
“Gorilla Pool is a fun company. Its edgy, punchy and fun branding distinguishes it from a lot of the other companies in BSV and crypto in general,” Alkema said.
Gorilla Pool has focused on giving a face to its operations, and Alkema, co-founder Kurt Wuckert Jr. and the rest of the team interacted with thousands of attendees at the event. Alkema says it’s not just about the product; it’s also “about people who care about what they are doing.”
“Everyone [in the BSV blockchain] is really passionate about something that makes a difference in the world, and we’re laying the foundation of what that’s all about,” he remarked.
Gorilla Pool allows clients to purchase as little as one miner and immediately start earning BSV in their wallet. Alkema and his team take time to educate their clients on the economics of ASIC mining before onboarding them “so that they can make fully informed decisions.”
On whether you can mine Bitcoin at home, Alkema stated, “You could, but you may be divorced by the end of that week. The miners are very hot and loud, and that’s why a managed solution is the way to go.”
