I am not sure what the ramifications of responding are, however, from a technical point of view bitcoin mining would probably be characterized as HTC (high throughout computing), not HPC, as it is an embarrassingly parallel problem.

Hello TSC folks,

I was wondering if you could help me with a Twitter direct message that has been received by the OpenHPC twitter account (https://twitter.com/OpenHPCcomm) ?

Received a direct message from - https://twitter.com/btcking555

'Dear OpenHPC, quick question: “is it correct and not misleading to refer to Bitcoin Mining as Providing HPC Solutions ?” Thank you in advance'

My thinking is that this is out of OpenHPC's scope to comment on. Do you agree? How would you respond? Should we ignore?

Thanks,
Neal
