Scientist Mines Bitcoin on Computer Model Used by Apollo Missions

A reverse engineering exponent, Ken Shirriff has reportedly worked out a code that enabled him to mine Bitcoin on one of the first integrated circuit-based computers that were used to navigate the first moon landings by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) in the 1960s. It has been estimated that it will take more than a quintillion years (1 with 18 zeros) to mine a single bitcoin block.
