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.

Re: bitcoin mining category?

"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.

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?
