Are there any discussions here by people who've used other folks' processing power to produce coins, consensually or not?

For the purposes of lulz creation, I'm thinking of adding that appplet miner to a chat room I run for people who do what I do, although that is certainly not a serious attempt to make a useful amount of coinage moolah.

But I would love to read stories from people who've really gone for it and there must be some. I'm going to abuse my n00b "privileges" and just start a thread here expecting them to be served up on a plate.

The Bitcoin software, network, and concept is called "Bitcoin" with a capitalized "B". Bitcoin currency units are called "bitcoins" with a lowercase "b" -- this is often abbreviated BTC.

The last time someone publicly admitted to having done this on their website without the consent of the viewers was Atlas and look how much of an outcast he became.

I don't think anyone is going to respond to this thread with anything helpful.

Out of all the gamer's out there with massive rigs who don't have the time or interest of playing video games 24/7 I've been trying to think of some kind of way for them to volunteer their machines...

(And I mean this consensually/legally!)

I mean how many average day people are going to go through the trouble of understanding, minning, and investing bitcoins.

Is there a deal, program, or pool that you could make on their computer in exchange for something they find valuable that doesn't cut into your own profits?


Maybe computer repair. Networks...


I don't know.


At the very least. Perhaps set it up for the sake of charities which would strengthen the BCoin community and balance the public knowledge of this currency being used for online blackmarkets?
