    Default Bitcoin mining

    I'm surprised this hasn't piqued the interest of anyone here, using high end GPU's to mine blocks, after all each block is "worth" about $5000.

    There's Bitcoins in them there GPU's!!!

    Yee ha!!

    The average block takes about a year to process
    “Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

    As it gets harder to mine them, the price will surely rise!

    I'm a Bitcoin billionaire in the making!

    It's got all the geek ingredients.

    High end cryptography, homebrew number crunching rigs, money making, hacking and security, somewhat shady....

    Just for a bit of fun I started mining them a year ago. I mentioned Bitcoin on this forum and there was no interest at the time. It is only after publicity that people show interest
    Never attribute to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity
