First purchase with bitcoin

I used the first payout from Eligius to buy 20GH of SHA256 hashing from Hashie.

They have been running a deal where you can claim a 10GH hash which will accrue BTC.  The catch, if there is one, is that you can’t get a payout from it unless you eventually buy a miner from them.  GAWminers has recently started giving out freebie 10GH hashes under similar restrictions.

Purchases are only done in BTC so I sent a bit less than $10 worth for a 20GH hash.  That price is about half of GAW’s.


I also sent a small .0016 tip to open source project that accepts BTC.  I will write about this later.
