This poll is to check the hypothesis that everyone mines to dump.

Poll only has 5 options here. So I only included only the options looking plausible for me. I didn't think of someone still expanding their GPU rigs these days.

I save most, but sell what I need to pay bills. Never know when you need a few hundred extra dollars.

I invest them in the GLBSE or deposit them for interest payments.

I'm selling everything now to pay off what I spent on the rigs, then I'll sell enough to pay for electricity.

Sell just enough to cover most of the power bill. The rest get invested in various interest generating locations with the goal of the interest from my investments covering power. It's a bitcoin snowball!

I too am going the GLBSE route. I'm trying to test out the "compounding is the most powerful force in the universe theory". Before GLBSE i used to just spend them.

so far i've hoarded, but that's cause my mining rate is crap (350ish mhash) so i've only got about 16.3 btc right now.

when i actually have enough to DO something with it, it'll be a cyclical pattern - mine buy more hardware, mine, buy more hardware...

As it's a pretty constant stream of income from mining, I use it to pay for web hosting and other online monthly services. That and occasionally convert to paypal cash through SpendBitcoins.

I'm getting the galaxy s3 on the first.  How do you like it so far?

On topic:  I haven't cashed any of my coins yet.  I keep seeing GLBSE pop up in these threads, so I might have to look deeper into that option.

I buy things with my bitcoins. I don't bother converting them to USD(this is a long arduous process, and I'm impatient). I have only bought games and computer accessories up to this point.

Buy things.  Should be a choice on the poll.  I've bought used computer parts, cables, an iPod, and put in two orders to upgrade singles to SCs.  Oh, and raw Thai honey.  Can't forget the honey.

Looking to invest soon at the exchange.
