Strange new pdf animal? Anyone know how to print it? by John B. Smith

A legal solution for bitcoin. by [email protected]
English translation (google-translate assisted :)): My fear is that bitcoin will cause global warming and rising electricity costs. A possible solution for bitcoin is to introduce a law that states that a person can only mine bitcoins with only one or a maximum of 5 computers. Such a law could...
