I would like to learn more about this whole Bitcoin thing. If you've got any good advice on where I can learn the ins and outs of this system please link. I've watched some youtube videos and all, and could probably set up an account without a problem. I guess I'm wondering more about how to acquire the bitcoins through mining. Any info you could throw out here would be great since you seem to be pretty knowledgable on the subject.


Mining is very complex and right now probably isn't worth getting in to unless you have a significant amount of money and time to invest in it.

Efficient mining requires multiple expensive chips (currently GPU's and FGPA's, but soon to be moving to ASIC's) and a large amount of electricity. It can be difficult to actually turn a profit mining unless you pretty much make it a business.

If you are still interested, then check out this thread I started on the Money Talk board...I went into some detail on mining and provided some links: http://www.tigerdroppings.com/rant/display.aspx?sp=39397737&s=2&p=39397737#39397737

There are a lot of things I could list as an answer here, but none will satisfy you. So the best answer is probably:

And believe it or not, that's a good thing. It's all based on supply and demand. Obviously you have no demand for bitcoins so you would probably value them at $0. The thing is, there are a lot of people that do demand bitcoins, and they currently value them at $19.09.

Money doesn't have to be backed by anything. It's a silly misconception, nothing has intrinsic value. The only reason to "back" a currency with anything is to prevent the supply from being inflated, but with BitCoin, you don't have that worry.
