Just curious to hear about the experiences of other South Africans, in terms of mining BTC, or trying to buy.

How did you go about it, would you consider it a successful endevour and was it at all fun?

Hello, yes there are quite a few.
Some of the guys are producing decent 5/6ghash's setups. I know of a few that have ASICS etc. Its def happening to a degree.

Im just running my 6990 at 700mhz giving me about 750mhahs but being nice and quiet while doing it.

Oh and i dont pay for electricity  Grin

Before the big drop $0.1 per BTC, i was running a setup with 2x5970's and a ASUS Ares and was getting about 2Ghash. Then i was earning about 5 BTC daily. Then the crash and sold everything... How i wish i had had some foresight and kept mining  Angry Angry Angry

Also working on a few bitcoin projects. I have Safe Wallet that is available here somewhere (source code included) but am in progress with a few friends starting a much much bigger project.

Hope it works out  Tongue Roll Eyes

Thanks for the feedback guys, it's interesting to hear!

Has anyone had any success buying or selling BTC? If so what platforms did you use and were there a lot of hoops to jump through, in terms of transferring funds in to buy, or getting cash out when selling?
