I'm not sure if this is the correct sub-forum for this, but I figured that since it's software it might be applicable to ask here. Anyways, I've got a friend that's been doing this for awhile now and has been making a decent amount of money. I was wondering if a stable internet connection is required to do this. I'm currently deployed to Afghanistan, but I do have access to the internet in my room, however, it's fairly slow and unstable. On the plus side power consumption is free, so bitcoin would be pure profit (minus the cost of a new laptop, which I've been considering anyways). Also, if anyone else had other comments to add about bitcoin I would appreciate perspective/tips.
