    Hey! Thank you for facts, they are simple but useful. It seems that Bitcoin traditional mining is extremely uncomfortable and even unprofitable process. Really? I heard that hardware mining is cool and there’re no alternatives. Maybe, you can update this list with more actual info and with comparison of facts? Like, I’d be grateful for some info on cloud mining (you may start exploring sites from the list: http://miningtop10.com/ ). Other newcomers will also say thanks for more detailed guide. Now it’s only a few facts without solid structure, sorry.
