Is anyone doing this? I feel like I missed the boat with bitcoin and that it would be too difficult to get anything substantial so started looking into other alternates. For the moment I'm thinking of trying Doge coin, though I'm not totally certain what I can even do with them. Anyone more well informed than myself able to explain a few things for me? Where does the value of these coins come from? Why is a bitcoin "worth" $1000? What are the computations that your computer handles being used for. It all sounds rather pyramid scheme to me but I am passively interested at least.
