Not anymore way back when you could mine on an average computer I left it run over night and mined a little over .5 coins.
I got tired of the noise and electrical usage quite using it that day.
When a pizza place near a friends house started accepting them when they were around $15 if you could cash them out I gave it to him to get some pizza.

I never made sense to me and still doesn't.
It seems to me these days like hike up the price and leave the suckers to hold the worthless bits at the end of play.

Hi,

No, I don't own any, but YAda, Yada, Yada, came close to what it is. or is trying to be----MONEY. Paper money is not backed by anything either. So crytocurrency will be used on line for goods and services. Elon Musk is accepting C currency for his cars and I believe another car company has also said thy will accept it for payment. As other companies get on the bandwagon it may have worth. It is a very scarce commodity.

It will be interesting to see what develops.

Own it? I don't even know what it is! Of course I've heard of it a million times, and I thought it was some fake currency, but it's not. I wouldn't even know how to define what it is. Like a lot of tech things that make no sense to me, I switch off when I see the word. I should probably google it and find out what it really is, but I'm so uninterested I probably won't.

No, is the short answer!

I honestly don't understand it all. My husband tried to explain it to me but I think my eyes just glazed over. I can't get past the fact that it is so often used for illicit payments on the dark web (drugs, child ****, etc.) I want no part of that.

Thank you, Bot. This is timely and informative.

Can you tell us more about this thing you call cryptocurrency?

You really think that's a bot?
It certainly may be.
Afterall, it/she/he/they DID register today just to post that ... and "she" has an VERY eye-catchingly attractive avatar.

Hmmmmm. :think::think::think:

If so, I really HATE what's happening to our world. :(sad :blackeye: :knockout: ;(:x2:-o:((:angryfire::angryfire::angryfire::angryfire::angryfire::angryfire::angryfire::angryfire::angryfire:

...and crypto has been in virtual freefall and in desperate need of a bot-driven boost.

It's an odd day to praise the virtues of crypto :)

I don't own any Bitcoins but bought some ETC a few day ago. This is the first time I ever play the crypto market.
