- Mark Setlock was called into his friend’s dorm room to help build an ethereum mining rig.
- He eventually inherited the rig and began to build on it to maximize its earning potential.
- He also mines helium and PLANETS tokens, all in his 396-square-foot studio apartment.
In 2016, Mark Setlock, who was only 14 years old, heard about crypto through his entrepreneur cousin.
“He was starting a business and when he bought his products, he’d actually get a discount if he bought in bitcoin,” Setlock said of his gig selling batteries.
His cousin didn’t know what the crypto was at the time but wanted the discount since he was buying in bulk. Being young, Setlock didn’t think much of it. It wasn’t until 2020, when his friend asked him to help set up a mining rig, that he took interest in crypto.
