Inside the race to build the world's fastest Bitcoin miner (Wired UK)

Inside the race to build the world's fastest Bitcoin miner (Wired UK) | education trends & developments | Scoop.it
Bitcoin miners are looking to more and more powerful computers as Bitcoins become harder to mine
Gabriel Jones's insight:

Making more https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cryptographic_hash_function willincrease chances of winning the next 25 bitcoins/10 minutes. Where is the risk if everybody wants more? ...Electricity bills would be high; maybe too high versus the profit gained via bit coins. And now there is litecoin(http://litecoin.org/) to add into the mix. Will these facilitate a more democratic market, one that makes governments more responsible? Or will the governments respond with bitcoin currencies of their own, to try and edge out the competition?
