The latest news about Bitcoin says they are gonna split. This is in addition to the latest split that was done within the last week or so.
If you can afford a capable "mining" machine why not keep at it? It's my understanding that they cost roughly $10,000. I may well be wrong about the cost.

Personally I would choose a more solid hedge, something you can hold in your hand. Silver bars and gold bullion bars or coins fit this bill. Even at today's manipulated low prices you can carry a lot of hard money in the form of gold. Silver is different, at ~ $18.00 per ounce a very strong back will be required to hump a meaningful pile of it.
However silver will pay small amounts more fairly than say one quarter ounce of gold would.
When the world will be better.
