Ima dosta ovakvih priča ali ovu nisam čuo ranije. Lako je biti kritičan sa naknadnom pameću, ali je i smešno.
If you're reviewing a machine that makes money, what do you do with the money?
Naturally, our first impulse was to use the Bitcoins to replenish our old pal, Beer Robot, (San Francisco's Pacific Brewing Laboratory said they'd sell us a keg for BTC 1.5). But that didn't pass the journalistic ethics sniff test.
How about a charity? Since some people feel that Bitcoins spell doom for our children's basic counting skills, we toyed with the idea of donating the Bitcoins to the National Math and Science Initiative. But then, a monetary system that is turning crypto geeks into millionaires is probably helping more kids get into math, not fewer.
But in the end, the answer was obvious. The world's most popular digital currency really is nothing more than an abstraction. So we're destroying the private key used by our Bitcon wallet. That leaves our growing pile of Bitcoin lucre locked away in a digital vault for all eternity – or at least until someone cracks the SHA-256 encryption that secures it.
