    That's actually a pretty good idea - these tips could go toward buying hardware for testing, seeing as they can't really be used for anything else anyway. Besides, it seems Michael has to dip into his own pockets often enough for reviews anyway.

        Only if it's backed by actual BS.

            bcash is a scam, don't use it:

            Bitcoin (BTC) is the real Bitcoin.

              Seems to have dropped recently when checking after some recent readers asking.

                Actually through Coinbase and such can convert it into USD. Unfortunately the margins are too tight recently and ad rates tanking this month (looks like it might be GDPR related...) that unfortunately no plans to buy any new hardware for review anytime too soon.

                  Bitcoin fees are literally cents right now, after segwit kicked in. The bcash scam has no reason to exist.

                    Bitcoin mining fees used to be crazy, but seem to have dropped to reasonable numbers again.

                    Right now, it's approximately:
                    BTC: 0.00015 ~ 1.26 USD
                    BCH: 0.0002 ~ 0.28 USD
                    ETH: 0.0012 ~ 0.85 USD
                    LTH: 0.00075 ~ 0.10 USD
