MacVoices #14218: Bryan Chaffin on the Bitcoin Economy, His Essential Gear and Renting Software

Bryan Chaffin provides an update on the Bitcoin economy – whether it is still a thing, why its use continues to expand, and whether he is continuing his mining operations. Bryan wears lots of hats, personal and professional, so has some very specific productivity needs. What he uses, hardware and software, to get it all done, and why he has made those choices, is covered, along with his thoughts on renting software and more.
