I am starting this campaign here because I don't know where else to go for help.
I need to raise funds to get the equipment needed to start mining for BURST.
Burstcoin is a digital cryptographic currency and payment system based on the blockchain technology. Burstcoin was introduced on the bitcointalk.org forum on 10 August 2014 as an Nxt-based currency. Burstcoins are mined using an algorithm called proof-of-capacity in which miners use computer storage instead of the more common energy-expensive method of permanent complex computational calculations.
This means that instead of GPU's or specialized mining equipment you will use your hard drives to mine. Much more productive since the drive is mostly idle and power costs are very, very low compared to other equipment needed for other coins.
For more info on BURST read the wiki page.
I joined the BURST dev team right when it was first introduced and been active some good months. But from a personal reason in Nov. 2014 I had to step out. Of everything.
Today I am back, but my drives are not able to keep up with the increased difficulty of the BURST network and I am unable to buy what I need to get back to mining and helping out the dev team to continue the great work they did with the coin.
This will also help me maintain the hardware over time since I will be reinvesting most of the earnings back into BURST.
Bitcoin lending sites have a high rate and only allow for 60 days loans. This is a long term investment and I am unable to pay back any loans with interest in the required time.
