The economics board isn't necessarily devoted to mining topics.  I think given the rising difficulty level we could use a board devoted to the discussion of how profitable (or not) setting up mining rigs is at the given time and in the not-too-distant future.

Maybe?

EG., the last few rises in difficulty:

0.121463019
0.187579773
0.435362573
0.550743633
0.781461726
0.304436606
0.545922077
0.572706789

Makes for an interesting discussion of its own.

There are several different types of Bitcoin clients. Header-only clients like MultiBit trust that the majority of mining power is honest for the purposes of enforcing network rules such as the 21 million BTC limit. Full clients do not trust miners in this way.

Need more than that, that's why we still post directly under mining.
