Gambling has been a part of human culture for thousands of years – it is a past time that we wholly enjoy, a way to profit from the talents of our ability to game a system. Yet, gambling in many countries, like here in the United States, is more or less illegal leaving fans of gambling to find havens in which they might be able to play their games. While the U.S does have a few places where we can gamble, a new type of gambling is arising on the Internet: the bitcoin gamble. I have been mining bitcoins for years now (mining being the term of generating bitcoins through utilizing computers to solve algorithmic problems). As a bitcoin miner and a fan of gambling, I had been wondering whether it would be possible to actually combine the two somehow.
