    Anyone go mining for BitCoins?
    Bitcoin is an experimental, decentralized digital currency that enables instant payments to anyone, anywhere in the world.Bitcoin uses peer-to-peer technology to operate with no central authority: managing transactions and issuing money are carried out collectively by the network.

    its black market currency

    it is often used to buy drugs and kitty pr0n (check out the silk road)

    anonymous even tried (and failed) to stop the illegal pr0n from being bought and sold with it

    i personally would stay away from it unless you use TOR whenever you use it and never tie it to your real identity, or you dont mind being investigated by state and federal agencies

    Back in the day, I got some game roms from a site (nitroroms) that wanted you to download and use guiminer in order to earn download privileges.

    I didn't do so. You only had to do if you wanted to go above a certain daily amount.

    I was iffy on installing anything on my puter which would use resources to gain BitCoins without their stated purpose.

    I was already aware of the somewhat shady goings on that people use them for. That doesn't mean I think they were doing that. I realize that some use it legitimately.

    Just didn't want to be part of it, if it was used nefariously.
