In case XS hasn’t put out an all-in ‘It’s going to be huge’ announcement on this yet, it’s past time to do so. (More at Amazon.)
A critical piece of the near-future Internet just crystallized.
Connect it to a solar panel and use the money for micropayments. “SolarCoin”
one company in US who manufacturint solar panels doing good mining alwasy among top miners on antpool.
this computer another Indian scam. Paspberry Pi 2 is not proved to be reliable for mining, no one of reputed manufacturers using it now. there is many reasons for that, main its burns easily. Second, – do you linux. at least do you know have to edit text file on linux, that first thing you going to need to set up maning to your account. and before that it will mine coins to Indian smart guys account.
money wise it is just scam targeting total noobs. hashing power 50-125 gh/s for usd 400, you can get reliable industrial strengh device for same money wich gives 10x of that hashing power AntMiner S5.
or better go for latest

If this is correct, operating even the latest miner would result in meagre profits. Is it still possible for individuals to mine bitcoin and turn a decent profit, without investing in more than several expensive (and rapidly obsolescent) mining devices? What do you think?
As for the 21 computer… as Anomaly UK mentioned, it seems to be a blockchain developer kit. The mining functionality appears to have been designed not for profitability, but so that developers have a (small) supply of real bitcoins to mess around with.

I think difference between having own mining set up or simply buying and holding bitcoins is when bitcoigoing up you still have your bitcoins for the same money you invested earlier and that can be huge difference one day. so as basement hobby it is carzy as hell, and a lot of fun learning in process. worth a trials. Antminer S5 best device, all set up done through web panel, cost only USD400.
The mining facility is for headline purposes only and is quite silly. The most important functionality is the wallet. Running a bitcoin wallet on an internet-connected windows PC is simply not viable from a security point of view; this (or if not this then something like it) should be. I wanted to design something like this as a wallet two years ago, but didn’t have the time.

in most households nowadays there is few old PCs here and there which can be used for Bitcoin dedicated machines. even windows xp sp3 will do just fine. nobody writing viruses for XP nowadays. but to set up secure online wallet requre some substantial skills, hardened kernel gentoo would be my first choice. Also installation of Bitcoin Core on Debian 7 sorted out and going smoth now.

I was talking about ordinary people. This needs to evolve into a phone form-factor, and drop to 20% of the price, and it becomes something anyone can use. They’re plugging the economically irrelevant mining feature as a developers’ tool; it makes sense to start with that and push to end users later.

windows xp is what ordinary people use. dedicated to bitcoins old pc with windows xp and intalled Bitcoin Core most simple and relaible solution for vallet.

Bitcoin will probably humble even the most seasoned speculator or investor, here it is slowly building up over a period of years right before our eyes and no one is quite sure what the hell is going on, and even if they’ve said a few things in favor of this technology or against, they probably don’t quite have the balls to have put their money where their mouth is.
If it appreciates again several times its current worth we will all have no excuse for the positions we did not take, because we’ve been discussing it over the years with much apprehension. It’ll be hard to talk big because whatever happens it’s going to be big and impressive, either in the negative or positive direction and we will all look like fools.

Bitcoins becoming Chinies digital currency. Huobi, Chinies bitcoin exchange doing trading volume in 100000 btc in 15 minutes quite often, around 36 mln usd of trading in 15 minutes is quite something. After Turkey downed Russian bomber markets went down and bitcoins rally with good increase in trading volume. 1 000 000 btc in last 24 hours in ChIna only. https://bitcoinwisdom.com/

Is this HFT but in China? Or is this human demand? A distinction that is increasingly irrelevant nowadays though.
SVErshov Reply:November 29th, 2015 at 7:34 am
about 90% or more of trading done by bots, but HFT is not working with bitcoins. I tested 1 min bot sometime ago in emulation mode (no real trades) got only loses. Depend on exchange, 15 minutes is some good average.
China and Hong Kong atracted alot of volume tradersfrom everywhere because they do not charge comission on trading as other exachnges European US based do, bitstamp, btc-e.
