I bought a bunch of Ada a few months ago (March). I’ve seen Ada go up and down and up and down, but more up than down. For some reason I feel awkward buying Ada, it gives me no satisfaction and the cheap thrill of seeing the value increase is not for me.
Now comes the noob cringe, are you ready for it?!
I know little about Crypto, so this is what I do know: Operating a node on the Bitcoin or Etherium platform allows you to “mine” those crypto currencies and supports the network.
I don’t know if Ada has a similar thing, I couldn’t find this on the website. Maybe it’s there, but it’s well hidden if it is.
So, if I want to buy a computer / mining rig, and set it up to support the Cardano network. How do I do this? If you can’t mine Ada, is there a way to contribute (with a value equal roughly to the cost of a computer, normal at home, medium price ranged gaming rig, not NASA’s supercomputer, mkay ;)).
