Frequently Asked Question

What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is an experimental, decentralized (not controlled by any organization or government) digital currency decentralized peer-to-peer payment network that is powered by its users. Bitcoin is like cash for the Internet.

What is Bitcoin Mining?

Bitcoin miners run specific software on their computers to help collectively solve very large and complex problems. Much like “SETI at Home” or "Folding at Home".

Every transaction that takes place using bitcoins is recorded in a public ledger called the block chain. Basically, the block chain is a history of all confirmed transactions and a record of how much each bitcoin wallet has. Think of it like an army of accountants constantly writing who has how much and who paid whom in a huge piece of paper for all to verify (the block chain). The process called bitcoin mining confirms each of these transactions before it is saved into the block chain. On a few occasions, a transaction is really a reward of several bitcoins. This reward is what gives bitcoin miners the incentive to mine. Because the process of searching for bitcoin takes a lot of effort for computers, it is has come to be called "mining".

Service and Price.
I'm a first time buyer and will definitely use TigerDirect again. I did not ask for next service but that's what I got. I ordered on Wednesday and it arrived on Thursday! The packaging was very secure. I bought the computer as a travel computer - sort of a cheap alternative to my main work laptop. The reconditioned computer from TIGERDIRECT exceeded my expectations.
