Ooh! I get to offer a bit of a correction, though it's because I wasn't clear in my previous boost. I don't use my mined Monero to buy Bitcoin, I HODL that. I also stack sats every paycheck (And HODL those.) The sats I use for Podcasting is bought separately, as needed. I wish there was an easier way for the average person to mine Bitcoin, instead of these massive farming operations.

When you say Apple's mobile language, I think you're referring to swift, not go. Golang is a language by Google but it's quite popular outside of Google as well.

@ Chris I did the Monero mining on verry old xeons and i7 2x3 pcs... as a heater thingy. it didn't work for a 5x8x2.5 meters so 100M3 main room. I did not do the job. the white noise was loud and the mining was way to less to pay a part of the electricity. I do stil mine Monero on a pi, just for fun/learning.
