A Guide to Building Your Own Crypto Mining Rig - Bitcoin News

What do you guys think about the idea of crowd-funding a simple, open-source, enthusiast bitcoin mining full node?

It seems there could be a need in the bitcoin market for a low cost, simple, open-source bitcoin mining full node that is aimed at bitcoin enthusiasts. Maybe this is something we can crowd-fund as a community.
Something like this could go quite a way to give users a bigger voice/vote in all this scaling controversy by making them miners as well. It would also make it easier for users to run full nodes.
It seems the closest thing to this product concept right now is the [21inc bitcoin computer]() but the price and complexity of the device makes it only really suitable for developers.
This would be my initial suggestion for the spec of the device;
Product Design
Electronics
Software
I have the ability to do the 3D design work for the project but we would need people to handle the electronics spec, schematic and layout. Also we would need people to create all the software. I have a very high quality and competitively priced PCB and PCB assembly supplier in China to get the electronics manufactured.
What do you guys think? Could we crowd-fund this with bitcoin? Would people be interested in buying these? At a very early estimate on the BOM, it would seem this could be done for under $100 if we get high enough order quantities.
EDIT: Rough BOM
  • Enclosure (probably 2 parts) = $10
  • Raspberry Pi = $25
  • Mining Chip Module = $?
  • PSU Module = $?
  • Wifi Dongle = $5
  • 128GB SD Card = $45
