What is cloud mining?

Cloud mining is really useful for those who aren’t technically minded and don’t want to run their own software or hardware.

If you have very high cost electricity too – for example in Germany – then it’s a good idea to outsource your mining to somewhere where electricity costs are much lower as they are in America.
