A quick word about BitCoin Mining

BCMiningYesterday afternoon, I took my entire bitcoin holdings (0.1352 BC) and transferred it to my CEX.IO account. CEX.IO allows me to trade my BitCoins for units called GHS (Gigahertz/second). This payment is used to buy time on a system that is mining new BitCoins. Every quarter of an hour, it returns a portion of a new bitcoin to me in “rewards” (think of that as a stock dividend).

I used the 0.1352BC to buy 5.64GHS, and then started receiving those BC rewards. After about 12 hours, I gained 0.00046365BC in rewards. Converting that into US dollars, I gained $0.28 in half a day.

The Hidden Institute in India

Four people in India have downloaded a copy of “The Hidden Institute”. Despite the fact that I’ve given away nearly two thousand copies in the last four days, those four in India seem really amazing to me.

See, we all know that the Internet is everywhere. That’s old hat by now. If I post something public in Maryland, there’s the potential for it to be read in Dubai. But the chances against it are huge. That’s just the way the world works. But those four are different.

“Men’s courses will foreshadow certain ends, to which, if persevered in, they must lead,” said Scrooge. “But if the courses be departed from, the ends will change.”
