I just thought of this storage idea that seems good to me with HD's being more expensive and SSD's even more.  I don't know if it would be possible to use it like I'm thinking though.  I would want to be able to transfer files back and fourth and maybe download things to the disk/delete them.   Then have a little book for storing all the less frequently used files.

Bitcoin mining is now a specialized and very risky industry, just like gold mining. Amateur miners are unlikely to make much money, and may even lose money. Bitcoin is much more than just mining, though!

On what planet is a Bluray less expensive than a HDD?

Optical disks are still not good for random-access stuff. Good for transferring files and archiving them, that's about it. Booting off them and treating them like a writable operating system drive is worse than using floppies.
