So I just recently found out about this really interesting new currency called BitCoin. BitCoins are basically an internet experiment where an online currency with actual value has been created by some smart web developers. And the coolest part about how BitCoins are created is through playing computer games. But here's the crazy part-- so far it appears to be working. The video below is pretty informative, it is also the first and last time there will be any StarTrek references on this blog. We ain't that geeky.
There are a growing number of places where you can obtain free BitCoins, as well as online stores where you can buy real actual things using BitCoins. http://www.weusecoins.com/
