For those of you unaware what BitCoin is, it’s a virtual currency that’s been around for a few years now.
BitCoins are great for a few reasons.
First off, BitCoins are decentralized, so there are less fees and no limits on how you can use them.
Next, they can be mined. BitCoin mining is done on a computer by software created for such. It’s that simple.
The one drawback to BitCoin mining is that it does in fact take a while and works better on better computers.
Some people even have built computers dedicated to BitCoin mining. The key to successful mining seems to be in the graphics cards of PCs.
Here is a comparison list of BitCoin mining hardware from the BitCoin wiki.
Mining isn’t the only way to obtain BitCoins either. Here is a list of bonus programs offering BitCoins.
Here’s a video pretty much summing up everything about BitCoin.
