Miner One (MIO) Token Review – ICO Token News
A lot of people have developed an interest in mining cryptocurrencies due to their recent boom. But only a few have the knowledge and capability to mine the cryptocurrencies profitably. Many factors need to be considered for crypto mining, like stable power supply, electricity cost, safety, and security. That’s why Miner One has come up with an innovative approach for community mining. The platform is structured in a way so that both the participants and the management have a stake in its success. Every member of the Miner One community will receive a share as per their contribution to the project, which is represented by the Miner One (MIO) token. Every community member gets access to transparent accounting.
How Is It Different?
Cloud mining involves the mining of cryptocurrency utilizing remote data center and shared processing power. It allows the miners to mine the cryptocurrency without managing the hardware. A miner just has to register and purchase mining contract for this purpose. The miner has to pay the company for leasing the hashing power. Moreover the high management costs lower the return on investment.
The approach adapted by Miner One to mining is quite different. It is creating a community to build and manage the mining centers on behalf of that community. The accounting will be transparent and there will be equitable distribution of all output.
Cloud mining services often require you to sign a fixed-term agreement of one year duration. Once the agreement expires, your investment is lost and you have to buy a new one, usually at the approximate price of a new ASIC miner. On the other hand, Miner One (MIO) tokens, once acquired, secure your share of Miner One output as long as mining is profitable. Just like other Miner One community members, the management team will be remunerated through MIO tokens Miner One differs from other similar projects in that it puts the community first. This way, the platform is designed in a way that the founders make money when everyone else makes money.
Innovation – Miner One Cushion Effect
Investing in trending ICOs of the ICO list like BunnyToken, CoinMetro and Refereum have remained highly risky and highly rewarding too due to the high level of risks associated with the cryptocurrencies. One cannot assume that the future performance of an investment will be sterling, based on its past performance. Miner One is not aimed at speculation in Bitcoin. It aims at mining and hence serves as a cushion that absorbs fluctuations in Bitcoin exchange rate.
This is How It Will Work
Electricity prices are usually stable and fairly predictable. However, the mining difficulty is hardest to predict. Difficulty is adjusted regularly based on the hashing power deployed by the network of miners, to keep the rate of new bitcoin generation steady. If Bitcoin price range between USD 5000 – USD 30,000, your initial investment should be 2 to 5 times of its initial value in next 3 years’ time. Whereas purchasing bitcoin may leave you up, down or right. If BTC price significantly drops to around USD 100 – 1000, Miner One still be mining and over a period of next three years, will generate 2.57 – 4.63 BTC which amounts to 23 to 32 percent return on investment. Compared to the direct investment in bitcoin price in which the value would fall as per the decreasing price of Bitcoin, the “cushion effect of Miner One can efficiently amortize the negative effects of a lower BTC/USD exchange rate. The platform may yield you return even if there is a serious downturn.
Challenges and Solutions
Electricity costs and mining difficulty make it hard to tell how much cryptocurrency can be generated by a mining center. Assuming the bitcoin price to be between USD 5,000-30,000 and current costs of electricity and rate of difficulty, acquiring MIO tokens worth 0,001ETH can provide the necessary resources to successfully mine the bitcoin worth USD 2.15 – 4.86 for the next three years of operation.
MIO token holders have access to Miner One B-wallet which serves the purpose of both digital wallet and exchange. The wallet can be used to store, sell and buy cryptocurrencies, as well as receive the individual share of output. A Miner One debit card is also offered for payments and purchases directly from the wallet.
These Ethereum based tokens are digital assets that have value due to their underlying assets, associated rights and properties. Similar to other tokens such as Dadi and Shift.cash, MIO tokens are ERC20 compliant and so can be easily traded and exchanged. They remain valid for the life of a project, as long as mining remains profitable. Each token represents membership in the Miner One Community and a share in the output of the platform.
The tokens will be distributed as below:
- Public: 82%
- Fundraisers: 10%
- Research and Development: 6%
- ICO Bounty Program: 2%

Miner One is a cutting-edge, crowdfunded cryptocurrency mining operation. The community members contribute to building the mining centers and share their output transparently with the help of Ethereum-based smart contracts. To provide maximum mining efficiency, the management obtains the electricity at ultra-low industrial rates and cutting-edge technology at whole price. High-level security measures are taken to protect the investments of the community members. Each community member has access to regular accounting and reporting on all costs. The first Miner One mining center will be deployed in mid- 2018 which will focus on mining Bitcoin. The larger goal of the platform is to become the world’s biggest cryptocurrency mining operation.
