Frequently Asked Questions
Where are your hosting facilities located?
All of our hosting facilities are located in Australia. Currently, our solar farms are located in South Australia. We do have future plans to add additional hosting sites along the east coast of Australia.
Why should I trust Alpha?
Alpha is 100% Australian owned and operated. Collectively, we have over 15 years of experience running Bitcoin related businesses in Australia. You can learn more about whose makes up Alpha here.
Where do you source your hardware from?
We have a number of reputable and genuine resellers of hardware that we source our miners from. We are constantly looking for ways to reduce our pricing and pass on those savings to Alpha customers.
Where does your energy come from?
All of our current sites are situated on solar farms in Australia. When the sun is shining our energy comes from these panels. During bad weather or when the sun isn't shining, we do rely on the grid to provide our base load.

What type of security do you have on site?
All of our sites are protected by physical fencing and include on-site CCTV.
How long will it take for my miner to be activated?
