FT Cryptocurrency Mining Pool?
« on: October 25, 2017, 02:09:41 pm »
I've been thinking about this for a while, but I ended up forgetting about it and I just remembered this now.
What if FT had a cryptocurrency mining pool? I'm not just talking about Bitcoin, but maybe Ethereum or another currency. The money earned could help support the site or maybe something else.

Seconding this idea ^^ I agree with that idea! It would mean I could donate :0

Also this is a bit unrelated but what if we established an FT currency where you can pay for commissions, and could earn some by offering commissions, or doing things like holiday events as prizes?? It seems like a pretty fun thing, kinda like Deviantart points? Just a thought :fox-:P:

A FT mining team? I'm down for this. I suggest we pool the money to first upgrade setups if we go through with this.

Could you explain more on what you mean? I know about mining, but we wouldn't be able to run anything off FT's server itself, if that's what you're suggesting

I don't mean off of FT's servers, I mean the devices the volunteers use.

This seems like a good idea, and I really know nothing when it comes to bitcoin (or other virtual money, but I do know a tad bit). Pretty sure that my pc cant handle hosting the server (it does have an Intel Xeon which is meant for servers), but I could help with the mining if the server does get set up

If it's for Litecoin I'd be down for it.
Bitcoin is harder and more taxing to mine nowadays and I'd prefer staying away from Ethereum.
