Im not day trading at the moment but medium term Im bullish both.

Why steer clear of BTC for ETH?

Just dug out my old work phone, bought a round of drinks December 2014 on a night out at a pub accepting Bitcoin.

Current value £408, I hope it was a good round :cheers: :lol:

I'm shocked enough people are buying motherboards for mining that it's worth ASUS researching/designing/building etc. etc. a motherboard with mining in mind

I know there's server farms using gfx cards for actual work, but the layout of the board doesn't look like it would work well in a server case at all ?

Someone here sent me some (then) small amount of BTC free to pay a subscription because I was slightly short. Cant find the thread now unfortunately.

Ive steered clear of BTC because I dont believe the tech is fundamentally superior and dont foresee enough gain to justify the risk, but admittedly I thought it was overvalued from about $2000.

ETH on the other hand has great uptake, a better business model and much further to rise if it does take off.

I meant proper server cases for proper server farms, where they're using gfx cards to build cheap super computers to predict the weather etc.

I remember reading this, I found the old BTC thread (which in itself makes for interesting reading) but it's not there http://www.tekforums.net/general-discussion/bitcoin-mining/ might be in a newsgroups thread or something, as IIRC it was for that.
