Mining rare materials from asteroids. Asteroids may contain gold and silver as well.

Short term effect is 0.  This is still many many years away.
Long term effect is price of metals goes very close to 0.

This is speculation for future generations.

ET will buy some bitcoin. and the price will be higher.

Asteroid mining? Although solar power is more efficient in space than on Earth, you've got a big problem with heat dissipation (GPU fans don't work so well in a vacuum), so I don't think it'll work. Oh wait, you mean mining metal... never mind. Grin

Passive heat sinks would work so much better in space where you can radiate heat out to the universe (background temperature of about 3 degrees above absolute zero). Just keep the sun side insulated.

Passive heat sinks require an extremely large area for high-power, low-temperature applications, so you'd likely be using up most of your payload mass for just the heat sink. It's not a very efficient use of resources.

It's the Speculation section. We're speculating on the viability of asteroid mining and the effect it will have on the Bitcoin economy. Grin

Radiative heat dissipation depends on surface area. In zero atmosphere free fall, there are no structural loads. That means you can make really flimsy structures, like foil heat fins. Besides what alternative would you have in space?

In space you can use replicators. That will have a huge effect on the market.

Fortunately, bitcoins are harder to replicate than latinum. Grin

If you ask me, Bitcoin was invented under the pseudonym "Satoshi Nakamot"o by ET, Godzilla, the Alien Queen and JFK in order to control the population and eventually seize power in 2012 (December 21st!!!).

How exactly is Bitcoin supposed to control the population? Unless... dammit, I knew I shouldn't have used my laptop for mining!
