Bitcoin battles to hold to $1,000 after thumbs-down from China and Greenspan - The Tell - MarketWatch

Naturally, I don't trust you for quoting that article.

We may not have bitcoins, but we still have our belief that an absurd thing like mined fake nothingness out of nothingness will ever amount to anything.
... which will go well with our belief that an absurd thing like printed fake nothingness out of nothingness will ever amount to anything.
Meanwhile 3 GPUs do very nicely as, well, GPUs.
I mined enough that I do owe you a beer or three for making me look at it.

FTR, after mining a few coins, I realized that the asics (which I could've designed! ) were going to make my killer machines useless (5x 7970s) and turned them onto litecoin for a bit.

Have a spare CC separated from the others just in case (plus a photocopy of the passport.)

Deutsche Bank, Credit Suisse and JPMorgan are marketing the security, called Invitation Homes 2013-SFR1 (the last part of which means "single-family rental"). Moody's Investors Service, Kroll Bond Rating Agency and Morningstar gave the deal's $280 million top slice, or "tranche," the highest rating, AAA.
"which" AAA was not included in the article.
I wonder what rating they will get form the ratings agencies?
