Wait, is mining for bitcoins basically your computer grinding for XP

@cwebber LOL I understood XP like Windows XP and I was confused.

Now yeah, I think I understood it correctly.

@cwebber It's more like goldfarming in an MMO where the resources you spend to farm gold cost you more than you earn from that spot.

I wonder if you couldn't connect an Odroid to a solar power source, and mine them. That should cut costs by a lot, but I'm not sure how well a machine like the Odroid would be at actually doing it.

@cwebber Yeah, but it's crappy Korean MMO levels of grinding and returns.

@cwebber Bitcoin mining creates demand for coal mining.
