    That somewhat reminds me of the taxing virtual (game) transactions/items roughly a decade ago, when SL was the new hype and people (claimed to) made big bucks from selling pixels for RL money.

    As soon as the media started talking about billions of dollars and people were parading around as bitcoin millionaires to was obvious that the tax authorities would get involved.

    The secret if you have found some "get rich quick" scheme is to keep it quite, because the tax man is always listening.

    Police question Bureau of Meteorology staff over cryptocurrency operation

    Two Bureau of Meteorology employees are being investigated by the Australian Federal Police (AFP) for allegedly running an elaborate operation involving the use of the bureau's powerful computers to "mine" cryptocurrencies, ABC News has learned.

    Federal police officers executed a search warrant at the bureau's Collins Street headquarters in Melbourne on Wednesday last week (February 28). The officers spoke to two IT employees, according to people with knowledge of the raid.

    The rest of the bureau's IT team was ushered into a conference room and told to wait while the employees were questioned, the people said.

    At least one of the employees who was questioned by the AFP has since gone on leave. No charges have been laid but the investigation is continuing.
    While mining cryptocurrency is not illegal, use of the bureau's computers to carry out the process could be an illegal use of government resources.

    A spokesperson for the bureau declined to answer questions, citing the ongoing investigation, as did the AFP.

    If the employees were mining cryptocurrency, they may have been using the bureau's computers to either avoid the significant electricity bills involved in mining, or they may have been taking advantage of the bureau's powerful computational power, said Chris Berg from RMIT's Blockchain Innovation Hub.
    ~ reminds me of a story from way back in ... 2011 I think, where someone working in the IT dept. for that broadcaster was fired for using overnight idle server time to mine Bitcoin. Back when it was worth maybe $20?

    By "arbitrarily difficult calculations with no social value" you mean "Marxist economic theory"?
