Just bought bitcoins

Quote:thats ingenious

Yep, just Google Coinhive, the javascript, which it's written in, is readily available and was being used by all sorts of people for a strong month at least, until people started noticing their CPUs at 100% when they went to certain sites.

I just read, briefly, on how to mine and apparently the PC is no longer powerful enough to effectively mine, you actually need 'mining' hardware, which, from the three examples shown, range fro $500 to $2,000 (US). Since that ain't in the budget, guess the best way is to just buy it, itsy bitsy by itsy bitsy.
If it ain't broke, I just haven't gotten to it yet.

Yes, but they make the mattress lumpy.

Another way would be to buy VPS for mining, only a few provide that service.
Others explicitly stop people mining cryptocurrency (learned after getting vps suspended).

Quote:Thats funny because i actually am more of that way as well. I dont like CC, or even debit cards. I always use cash, and prefer to stash my cash at home instead of put it in a bank. Although i have default student loans and default CC's, so i am always worried about the bank handing my money over to the government. I was more thinking that bitcoins couldn't trace back to me where something like stocks and bonds could.

I have a regular bank debit card, gave up on credit cards when mine was compromised twice in the same year. The only thing I use my bank card for it to purchase
groceries, and prepaid debit cards which I buy in relatively small amounts and use for all internet purchases, and also at Microcenter, which is my favorite toy store.

The cost is a flat $4.95, which I am willing to pay, just for the peace of mind I have using the card online.

The only problem is that the ed of each month, I end up with several cards with anywhere from 10 cents to 10 dollars on them which I throw in a cigar box, because
there's not a lot that you can do with them. If they were over $2.00, I used to take them to McDonald's to purchase fries or something like that. I have been on a gluten
free, sugar free diet for quite some time now, so can't go there anymore.

At any rate, if one get's compromised, it will make me angry, but not so much as when my credit card was.

I do cash because then the government cant take my money. I have defaulted student loans and i dont trust to put my cash where they can take it

My son spent just about 10 years in school, he went first to berklee college of music,
and then after realizing it was going to be tough living as a musician went back to get
a PharmD. He's been out of school almost 20 years, and still paying off his loans. School
shouldn't be like that. Education is a good thing, but it's ruined by the cost.
