to the Hybrid Cloud. That's not how the sellers pitch it, naturally: as the first computer with native hardware and software support for Bitcoin, It provides a constant stream of Bitcoin and the software to make that Bitcoin useful for buying and selling digital goods. Look, at least you get 400 worth of Raspberry. The Linux-based toy can be run as a standalone computer or connected to Mac / Windows / Linux boxen. More usefully, there's also Bitcoin transaction software that the makers say let customers trade the cryptocurrency, offer transaction services, and the like. If you want to get into BitCoin mining, research full sized GPUs. The 21 Bitcoin Computer.

Vulture South will take the 21 Bitcoin Computer more seriously when we hear that of thousands of them replacing asic-based HPC kit in Hong Kong skyscraper data centres. For just US399.99, the 21 Bitcoin Computer gives you your very own Bitcoin coprocessor, complete with command line interface, a 128 GB SD card pre-loaded with a copy of the Blockchain, software, Wi-Fi and bitcoin scrypt USB cable, power supply, and a Raspberry Pi (the latter meaning. Bootnote: For clarity, a later edit added the detail that 21 added its own silicon. Amazon for pre-order by enthusiasts, developers, and suckers. My two cents: now that the reward for completion was cut, mining is not worth the electricity cost, or the price of GPUs). Rather than take the magic to the press, the 21 Bitcoin Computer landed direct. I thought about clustering the Pis and creating a bad ass Mining tool but the price and speed was not effective enough to justify clustering. BitCoin mining uses GPUs (due to their speed over the CPU the GPU used in the Raspberry Pi is no where near the speed of the GPUs used in BitCoin mining. The Bitcoin magic happens on silicon designed by 21 running as a co-processor to the Raspberry.
