The cryptocurrency craze has all sort of people using dirty methods to steal computing power to "mine" it.

Since natural gas prices are so low here, there are companies in Alberta starting up who are burning gas to generate electricity to mine and sell cryptocurrencies.

Yeah, I think I posted on that like 2 weeks ago. It's so fucked up. Pure speculation driving people nuts. A cyber ponzi scheme.

They all imagine it will rise forever, when is that ever a good omen in any market ? When that shit crashes, then what will they have? Jack shit, having done that all to generate a big nothing.

Next there will be shady evangelists who are soliciting donations from their flock just so they can mine bitcoin for themselves.

Who reads Salon anyway :lol: That's why they need others to mine their cryptos, because they don't earn any more money :roll:
