Excluding exchanges and pools, what Bitcoin businesses and companies (particularly the retail ones) do you think are making some good money?  By 'good money,' I mean that they are earning enough so each person in the company can live solely off the company's profits without the need for a 2nd job.

Do Bitcoin businesses like this exist yet?

Hi,

I'm not sure if this qualifies, but, I run BitVPS.COM and I can report our earnings/profit are quite strong.

I plan on getting footed enough to have my VPS business keep me afloat, right now, its just using an idle computer, but should be able to pay for the new server.

In other words, Not yet for me, my rates do cover the electric, so money is money right?

MrGasp, why not buy a dedicated server from BitVPS? I can get you some nice deals on 6+ core AMD boxes with SAS 15k rpm disks with raid Smiley)

Not earning enough to work as a job, but actually making a profit.

Well for one, I want to own the servers, have them in my possessions, and have physical access to them.

Two, too easy Grin

Edit: Third, 8GB of ram.

Nah there's no money in it.  Just a hobby.
