Bitcoin

Post by sniper101 »

Hey,
Im just wondering does anyone mine for these coins?
I know how it works and all im just curious about people mining and using it and such
and also does donation accept bitcoins? that be cool and nice
or we all could pool our bitcoin and make money!
but sadly its hard to get one coin and such and maybe not worth it at all
and maybe soon bitcoin will crash and just be a one big money making scheme that makes billions of dollars

I dont think bitcoining is worth it, to evem be able to gain anything from it you would need to be in a pool (as stated). Bitcoin-based donations? No way. We would have to convert that to PayPal money some way for us to even be able to pay for the server.

GPUs are by far better to mine Bitcoins than CPUs are. Therefore you need a pretty strong one to be an effective asset in your pool.
Sorry about the donations thing, but Bitcoins arent as big as people think. We wont be able to utilize it.

Also, There's enough big corporations mining bitcoins at this point, it's really hard to get much for your time and money.

yea as i stated in the the first post
but if we all pool im sure we could reach that bit :)
and not only GPU work very effective to find that coin
but also ASIC chips which is oriented to cracking codes which means finding that bitcoin lol
but also do u guys know u could also use those ASIC chips to crack down passwords! lol

right now im planning to pool with my friends and his friends friends hope we could strike it rich lol
and maybe we could pool some people here if ppl r interested?

Bitcoin? Ahha i already have a Bitcoin generator. Go to B1TK01NG3N3R@T0r.ru for free bitcoins!
I got 9001 Bitcoins, absolutely free! (and maybe 1 or 2 viruses)
(disclamer: 9001 Bitcoins= 1 eu, .999999 USD, -1 Yen. Bitcoins are also retarted so remember that)

Edit: Going to the above website results in the 2010 Microsoft Outlook setup wizard to appear at least for me

That's because it acts as an email adress because of the "@" in it. B1TK01NG3N3R@T0r.ru here, the provider would be T0r.ru and the "adress" would be B1TK01NG3N3R
