bitcoin mining category?

Is there a suggested category for 'bitcoin mining'?

The URL's I've looked up all seem to fall under 'Internet Services', but I think in appropriate.  Any possibility of adding a category for 'Internet Currency' perhaps that would include bitcoin, litecoi, et al related sites including mining and transactions.

"Internet Currency" seems too general, "Currency Mining" services would be very different from "Currency Exchanges" which would more reasonably be "Banking/Financial".  Or maybe "Banking/Financial" is sufficient.  But, I agree that "Internet Services" is too general.

Re: bitcoin mining category?

I noticed that many sites that implement Cryptocurrency mining have the category "Resource Sharing"

Info about this category:

Web pages used to harness idle or unused computer resources to focus on a common task. This can be on a company or an international basis. Well-known examples are the SETI program and the Human Genome Project, which use the downtime of thousands of volunteered computers to analyze data.

They should add "Cryptocurrency mining."

I think it is a good list for private users, so why not for business?
