According to this article if you bought $100 worth of bitcoin currency 7 years ago it would be worth $75 million today. Have you ever heard of bitcoin?

That's like dominos stock. In 2008, it was 3.08 a share. Now it is at 198 and rising. Could've made a lot of money.

This reminds me.....last week someone on SOH said they found a few bitcoins outside, which confused me. Anyone else see that poll?!

Almost all bitcoins are stored on a hard drive, which I remember a story of a guy who threw out an old hard drive with over $100k worth of bitcoins and didn't realize it until the garbage people already took his garbage, but there is a small amount of physical coins which most are worthless.

I know. I have some but didn't invest nearly enough in it. I looked into bitcoin mining years ago too but it was too resource intensive and I didn't think the investment in additional equipment would pay off.

We're heavy into mining here in northern Minnesota. No bit lodes have been discovered yet, but wouldn't be surprised if they're out there. We could become the Saudi Arabia of bits...⛏ 🤑
