    Here in Denmark an item does not lose its warranty if you resell it. If you provide the buyer with the invoice he can even go to the retailer (you interact with your retailer for warranty issues here, in 99,9% of products) and have them handle it.

    You can come!
    Here in Portugal, either you have the receipt with your name or you lost warranty.

    It works like any other digital currency that you can buy, it's not like your getting it for free.
    Main issue for gamers is the way that transactions are validated, since miners as GPU manufactures want to earn as much as they can on that, which leaves fewer graphic cards available for gamers, chip production just can't keep up with such a demand.
    Money laundering, tax evasion and trade of illegal goods are other issues with cryptocurrencies, something that every miner should consider, since they are indirect supporting such.

    It certainly is against the law, but what might surprise you is that digital money is not covered by these laws. Commercially owned banks are able to create new money as easily as typing numbers into a computer by being part of a club with an account at a national bank (i.e. Bank of England), all they have to be able to do is to balance payments with other banks at the end of the day. They are not required to have to balance their books as a whole.
    Most people would refer to this as a 'bubble'.

    Now I have simplified this somewhat, but this is the TLDR of what happens.
    Shocking isn't it, and kind of puts cryptocurrency into perspective.
