Black Friday originated in the City of Brotherly Love in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in the 1950’s and is the Friday after Thanksgiving. Many people get their pocketbooks ready and get in their vehicles and drive to the store early in the morning to catch the great deals. And of course, nowadays we have the internet so most people don't even leave anymore they shop directly from home.

The data is locked inside.  Miners are people who search for, locate, and procure precious metals and stones. Bitcoin miners are no different.  Located all over the planet, bitcoin miners use special equipment on their computers to help them locate transactions, compute difficult problems necessary to validate a transaction and add that transaction to the…
