It’s not surprising that a Bitcoin mining device costs $499, or that they’re still available in 2015 despite the crash of the imaginary currency’s value.

What is surprising is that it’s currently the #1 best-seller in the “computer servers” category.
Imagine thousands of people clamoring to buy a desktop device that manufactures Tamagotchis, except a hacker can’t steal your Tamagotchi remotely, from his home in Bulgaria.
