All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
The European based portal for buying Bitcoins bit4coin is currently running an interesting Bitcoin Photo Contest where you can win up to 1000 Euro as a reward for the first place, 500 Euro for the second and 250 Euro for the third. All you have to do to take part in the contest is to submit a Bitcoin themed photo made by you. The idea is to show interesting, original photographs and artwork by and for the bitcoin community. Examples could be photographs of people using bitcoin, bitcoin spottings at interesting places, or bitcoin paintings. There is no limit to your creativity, as long as it has something to do with bitcoin. The contest is open for submissions at any time until October 15th, 2015. Jury members cast votes until October 21st, and winners will be announced right after.
The last week of the month long photo contest we have organized together with our partners GAWMiners has ended and we have selected the last winner. The theme of the photo contest this time was Covert Mining – Operation CAMO and you can see the photos of the best submission we have received, the ones that have won a 5-chip Gridseed ASIC miner to the owner of this clever modification for mining with an Inifinity USB 5-chip Gridseed ASIC.
The person who won the third week award is Happydaze who has submitted photos of his interesting modification for a stealthy Gridseed ASIC miner hidden in a flower pot. Congratulations to Mark for his good idea and realization that has won him another Gridseed ASIC miner. And if you plan on doing a similar modification yourself do note that the flowers used are not real, so stay away with the water from this flower pot.
Here is how he has described his modification: “This is my Operation Camo Gridseed purchased from GAWMiners! This flower pot has been modified for maximum airflow while maintaining maximum stealth. The power supply is portable so you can take it with you in your car or boat as long as you have WiFi for for your laptop. It is an excellent way to get one more Gridseed into the house. The ladies in your life will appreciate your new found romantic side. You can also take it to the office and your boss will never know! You can covertly mine anywhere and everywhere with the Operation Camo Gridseed!”
