Then he got into mining

Strip by: Ian Boreham

{A suited man is reminiscing.}
man: How did I make my first million? Well, now... I was working in a sweatshop in China. We were farming items and XP in an online game.

{In a fantasy world, the man is working in a field, growing swords, with a pile of wolf skins behind him.}
man: I was Grinding, day after day, tending my items...

man: Then one day, digging in a field, I turned up a buried hoard of bitcoins!

The author writes:

Annoyingly, one of the most common sorts of activities performed in developing country online game sweatshops is gold farming, which somewhat hampered my ability to make a comic about this.
