You may have the question of What is Bitcoin and Ethereum?
Well, Bitcoin is one of the most popular types of cryptocurrencies, which are digital mediums of exchange that exist solely online. Bitcoin runs on a decentralized computer network or distributed ledger that tracks transactions in the cryptocurrency. When computers on the network verify and process transactions, new bitcoins are created, or mined.
These networked computers, or miners, process the transaction in exchange for a payment in Bitcoin.
Bitcoin is powered by blockchain, which is the technology that powers many cryptocurrencies. A blockchain is a decentralized ledger of all the transactions across a network. Groups of approved transactions together form a block and are joined to create a chain. Think of it as a long public record that functions almost like a long running receipt. Bitcoin mining is the process of adding a block to the chain.
Ethereum, like Bitcoin, currently uses a proof-of-work (PoW) consensus mechanism. Mining is the lifeblood of proof-of-work. Ethereum miners – computers running software – using their time and computation power to process transactions and produce blocks.
So knowing how popular this trend of Mining is…you can see why it was only a matter of time before someone created a gun themed around it. One of the more intresting things about the cyrpto currency bitcoin is that before it was trending as a popular investment/mining currency it was used on a billion dollar black market website that allowed people to use Bitcoin to buy guns, drugs and hire assassins…Yeah crazy stuff! So it it is kinda ironic there is now a gun design after it.
So lets talk about the phrases on this piece of work
Some of the more interesting phrases on this build may not be seem familiar if you are not in the crypo mining world. I will break down some of the these sayings.
Rekt, an intentional misspelling of “wrecked,” is a slang term used in crypto to describe an investor’s portfolio or investment getting handily defeated. It’s used sensationally on social media to alert overleveraged positions being liquidated causing massive financial losses.
NVIDIA GUNFORCE GTX:
This is a reference to the NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX which is a brand and model of a graphics card used for mining ethereum.
Another saying that is not seen in the pictures is on the current mag inserted in the gun which says HODL.
HODL stands for “hold on for dear life.” HODL is a popular crypto meme and misspelling of the word “hold” (which some people then misinterpreted as standing for “hold on for dear life”).
GET RICH OR DIE MINING:
This phrase is just a play on the reference to the popular phrase „Get Rich, or Die Trying“.
In conclusion, This Cerakoted Custom Bitcoin/Ethereum themed AR Pistol definitely grabs attention with its very intresting pentagon mag and its very loud and intemidating muzzle flash. I had a blast reviewing this piece as well as getting the chance to shoot it. If you ever have a bad day, just get a hold of HW Armory and see if they will let you fire this AR, because it will definitely put a smile on your face.
