    I wonder about the payback time for the Bitcoin computer's $400 cost. But then, it provides more services than just mining. Cool :thumb:

    I read about that a year or two ago. At that point, it was probably reports from a public hearing or whatever.

    “Private blockchain” is just a confusing name for a shared database

    Being careful not to "step over the line" here. Those banks are just having issues with a blockchain that cannot be controlled or regulated by their industry. Here in our country if things go "bust" we'll be trading ammunition and precious metals for bitcoins and faster than most think. OK, stepping back from that line now just to be safe. LOL!!

    Nice ruling for early adopters. Genesis block sold at 1-2 cents per coin, and now hundreds each. No VAT ---------- nice!
