∗∗∗ Tales from the blockchain ∗∗∗
---------------------------------------------
We will tell you two unusual success stories that happened on the "miner front". The first story echoes the TinyNuke event and, in many respects gives an idea of the situation with miners. The second one proves that to get crypto-currency, you don’t need to "burn" the processor.
