Would it be feasible to make a coin that mines using your hard drive and if so, what would go into making one. Not the actual code but for example how would it mine using your hard drive?


Ok... New Idea: What if you were paid a certain amount of coins per unit of information that you store on your harddrive. This information could be used sort of like a cloud server where the company doesn't buy hard-drives, your the hard-drive, and you get paid for being the hard-drive.

Your HDD doesn't do processing, it's just storage. I thought you GLD guys were supposed to be smart?

 I much rather see a coin for nvidia
Enough of the ATI bullshit cornering the market.

Make a coin that pays active nodes for uploading the blockchain for said coin to other nodes and there you have some primative "hard drive mineing" I think a test of dropping a percent of coin to fulltime nodes is something that really needs to be looked into.  The list of trusted nodes os based on founding members and die hard supporters.  But they won't be around forever.

An incentive to leave your node up would add strength to a network.

Hey guys,

I was wondering if we could create a coin that is set up to mine either my fan or my PS2 outlets. How would we set that up? Maybe we can plug outdated mice into the PS2 plugs and depending on how fast we can move the mouse back and forth we could write an algo to create a hash rate out of that.

As far as fan mining I figure with CPU and GPU the only thing that really happens is the processors just run at full speed and coins are made. So what if we create a fan mined coin? We could just run our fans at 100% and Im sure some sort of coin is bound to show up somewhere.

You do know mining a coin already uses hard drives, actually everything done on a computer pretty much does.

But the coins use it for what it should be used for, storing massive blockchains that grow infinitely.
