Inevitably, hobbyists have taken the Pi to their hearts and put these tiny computers to all sorts of uses, now including mining bitcoins.

While this isn’t the first Pi to be used in connection with bitcoin mining, it’s a good illustration of how a Pi can be put to use in this way. - Read more here: http://www.coindesk.com/raspberry-pi-used-as-block-erupter-controller-for-bitcoin-mining
