Bitcoin Mining for Fun

I’ve just recently took a deep look in to bitcoin and how it works, I’ve created a wallet and decided to peek in to how bitcoins are mined.

cgminer seems to be a pretty slick piece of code and runs across Windows, Linux, and OSX.

As you may of noticed from a few of my blog post, I like to keep entertained with small hacking projects over the weekends. I’ve figured I would spend a few dollars (only about $14) and buy a ASICMiner Block Erupter USB 330MH/s Sapphire Miner.

My order should arrive sometime next week, so I will let you know how it goes at a later date.
