#187236 - Bitmining anyone?
Someone has asked me to help him to build a bitmining machine, which is basically just an array od FPGAs trying to find hashes which meet certain criteria
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bitcoin

Trouble is i don't see how anyone ever makes any money at it, the bitcoin price is very volatile and it takes weeks of lots of power just to generate a successful hash.
people use GPUs but FPGAs are more suited but its kind of expensive.
Anyone involved in this?
