Uniquify and the Bitcoin Boom

Get out your pickaxes, canaries, and a high-powered ASIC or two – we’re going mining! In this week’s Fish Fry, we venture deep into the Bitcoin caves with Bob Smith (VP – Uniquify). Bob and I chat about how the Bitcoin mining race is heating up (literally) and how Uniquify is using their ASIC expertise to create super-powered machines mining today’s hottest (and most controversial) virtual commodity. Also this week, I unveil a new unique Amelia-alternative to the current hardware-biased Bitcoin race. I’ve got two words for you: Bitcoin MMORPG. So strap on your headlamps ladies and gentlemen, we’re going in.
