I’m Michael Gu, Creator of Boxmining

I started Boxmining in 2017 mainly as a passion project, to educate people on digital assets and share my experiences. Being based in Asia, I also found a huge discrepancy between digital asset trends and knowledge gap in the West and China. So I leveraged my knowledge and positioning to bridge that information gap and let people know what is truly happening.

This journey has been nothing short of exhilarating for me, starting from when I mined Bitcoin in grad school to appearing on China’s national television as an overseas expert on blockchain technology, and having the honour of interviewing leading crypto entrepreneurs, including Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao and FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried.


Boxmining the leading provider of insights and resources on digital assets, decentralised finance and blockchain technology. We are dedicated to obsessively identifying and profiling the latest trends in digital assets, as well as providing educational resources from complete beginners to seasoned enthusiasts. As an independent news source, we rely on a network of talented contributors to provide the latest breaking news and insights. 

Originally starting off on YouTube, the Boxmining platform has gone through a huge expansion and today covers several social media outlets such as this website, Twitter and Telegram.

Boxmining YouTube

Boxmining YouTube is what started it all, now with over 247,000 subscribers. It started off as a passion project, with me chatting every day about various news and technological developments in the blockchain space. Today, I provide insights, guides and is a one-stop resource the latest happenings in the blockchain and digital asset space.

I go live every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 3:00am (UTC). During these livestreams we recap what is happening in the market and discuss key topics of interest in the digital asset and blockchain space. The livestreams are also a great opportunity for me to interact with the community and answer any questions they may have. Wednesdays are our special show “Crypto with friends” where I also invite other seasoned crypto traders and experts to discuss their views on this space and their secrets to success in crypto.

I also post educational guides and explainers on how to get involved in the digital asset space, as well as some helpful tools for navigating this space. I also provide detailed looks at particular projects or trending topics.

Boxmining website

Boxmining.com website acts as a complement to my YouTube. It covers a larger variety of topics with greater detail, so it is suitable for enthusiasts wanting to do a deep-dive into a specific area or to really master the usage of a specific product etc.

With the help of a brilliant community of contributors and writers, boxmining.com has become the central hub for accurate discussion of digital assets, blockchain and the decentralized future.
