Does anyone her do it? Anyone tried it and gave up?

I know that for most folks it's not possible to make much money doing it without a big hardware investment but I'm curious if it's worth looking into for a little extra monthly income after purchasing one of the more moderately priced bitcoin mining rigs such as the Antminer.

It's all a mystery to me as well but apparently it's the digital version of going down into a gold mine and bringing up more gold to make coins. In this case the 'coins' are Bitcoins, a digital currency comprised of encrypted blocks of information that can be traded and used as payments.

I knew what he was talking about, but no, no bitcoin mining here.  Though that said, I might have to consider it given how many computers we've got laying around here.  Should be able to hook up t least 1 as an automated bitcoin miner and/or WOW grinder.

I had no idea either, but one question; is it legal?
