The Bitcoin mining machine
Running a Bitcoin miner throughout probate
- Electricity cost vs. revenue. It takes a lot of power to run the machine. If you are spending a lot of money on electricity and the current price of Bitcoin doesn’t justify it, the executor may want to sell.
- Risks: If one of these machines blows out in the home, it could cause problems. If the machine itself is worth $10,000 and it blows out, then the heirs lose that money.
