Re: [furries-290] Tor and Bitcoin

Soon, specialized ASIC-based mining equipment will be the only
machinery that can keep up, and bitcoins will become even more scarce,
and thus, more valuable.

If you are interested, I'd suggest you stock up, soon.

^ That is the BitForce SuperComputer Mini Rig by Butterfly Labs

It is capable of calculating ~1,000,000,000 cryptographic hashes
per second.

This is the future of bitcoin mining.

Nothing else can really compare to that.


Unrelatedly, I've been studying e-commerce platforms, and CS Cart's
Multivendor Edition looks good.

Run your own amazon, basically.

I was also looking at various services you could pay for using bitcoin.

There's a lot of things out there people just havent heard of.
