I drew this in Inkscape with my Bamboo tablet (which I hadn't used in years) earlier today. There should be more strips/comics about Bitcoin in general, I think. Especially bitter ones. It's a real comedy goldmine (no pun intended). Criticism is expected and welcome.

Yes! Put your faith in fiat currencies. It's a sure bet. History has proved that.

Who's bitter? Looks like sour grapes to me.

"The Bitcoin Hangings" are surely going to make the headlines... I already see it coming! This also means more mainstream media coverage for Bitcoin, hopefully attracting more businesses and greedy speculators who will support the economical growth of the currency.

Also, I believe that he used ethernet cables instead of rope to pull this off. Be sure to use CAT6 ones, CAT5e simply doesn't cut it anymore.

Lol. I've never mined before, but I can indirectly relate to these struggles through what I've heard real miners talk about.

I image that's what the guy who added 0.7 Thash/s today must be thinking. Timing of this could not have been better  Grin

Mining is an investment.   There are risks because there are costs and no guarantee that the income will cover the costs.

Miners should always keep in mind that mining is a race between all miners.  And everyone can not be a winner.

Yes, that's right, this comic is about you! Incidentally that's the same setup I ordered, which is why I used it in that case. Welcome to the ethernet hanging club.

Cool comic, but why did you have to have the punchline/ending as your avatar Sad. Knew what was coming all along.

"WTF! $800 power bill. Gonna take a year just to pay for equipment"

When the difficulty was under 2 million or the price was >$20, mining was a lot more profitable than it was today.

Honestly guys 10% return per month is smoking with a capital S

In finance a return of 30-40% PA is regarded as a fraud..so BTC getting ~90% PA is golden  Cool
