    I would be curious to know more about how it is being taught - pro/against? I know you said you had a project related to digital currencies, and I'm interested in knowing more.

    I run a small mining farm myself - compared to the big guys - I'm an ant - but I am running 12 ASIC miners - 8 SHA256 and 4 Scrypt.

    I think the digital currencies have the potential to be huge - but they really need to deal with it differently for tax purposes. That is my biggest nightmare - dealing with the tax side of running these. FIFO inventory accounting - unless over 1 year held - then it's capital gains. The average person is not going to be able to do this kinds of tracking and make it a useful currency substitute. And I the world governments are not interested in the becoming that - unless they can control it.

    The implications are awesome though. Thus - I am running miners. :)
