This is a fascinating read from start to finish - I've only been mining (as very small hobby miner) for about 15 months now.
Some errie prophesies not the least of which is Mt Gox has gone belly up more than once...
Wonder where all those BTC are now?
Wow, how did you find this very old thread lol?
The June 2011 incident wasn't that bad, as the loss was *just* 2600 btc. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=576337#post_toc_21
Hi I was trying to find out some information on Faucets (how hard/easy they are to create what prog is needed etc) and this was about page seven of nine suggestions - most are long defunct or long empty BTC (*)faucets where the link's still there (and the obligatory banner farms) - a couple of links to faucet programs that have since been quietly removed....
(*) one faucet claimed to be paying out 1 whole BTC at a time, but a check of the blocks showed it never had even one whole one.
