CryptoDaily Camera and Gear Setup
CryptoDaily Camera and Gear Setup

Main Camera – Canon 1DX Mark ii Lens – Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM Lens Viewfinder – SmallHD 5inch
This camera again is totally unnecessary, but it gives great colour accuracy, sharp image and smooth 50fps. The 4k quality is quite important because it allows you to punch in without losing image quality.

Side Camera – Canon 80D Lens – Canon EF-S 10-18mm f/4.5-5.6 IS STM Lens This is the part of my setup I am least happy with. The lack of 4k quality on it is in stark contrast to the main camera, but provides 50fps smooth image also. The ultrawide lens is important so it can be quite close to you in an office without looking like it is.

Display – 49-Inch 5k Super Ultrawide Display – Dell U4919DW
Totally unecessary, but it does allow me to have notes on the side, my main window being recorded in the middle, and my OBS on the other side as though it was a triple monitor setup with no bezels.

Mic – Shure SM7B Mixer –
Yamaha MG10XU I love the sound of this mic. I’ve tried many in the past, nothing is better for podcast audio in my opinion.

Monitor Speakers – Audioengine A5+
Ideally you edit with a pair of quality headphones, but I try to be wireless where I can. This are monitor speakers so ideally what I am hearing is what most people will also have recreated when watching my videos.

Keyboard – Logitech G613

Mouse – Razer Mamba Wireless

PC – GTX 1080 graphics card, 8700K CPU, 32gb Ram, Maximus X Motherboard, NZXT AIO, NZXT Case, 4TB Samsung SSD.

I’m Michael Gu, Creator of Boxmining. I’ve been involved in the digital asset and Blockchain space since 2012. Something I immediately noticed was that accurate information is hard to come by in this space. More often than not, we find extremely biased information that exploits the complexity of blockchain to obscure facts. Having been around before bitcoin or blockchain was even “cool” meant that I had to do a lot of discovery myself, and along the way, I had many successes, but also made mistakes. 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.
