Why use Hashcat?
#1
Hello Hashcat guys,

I see that you guys build out some pretty intense hashing rigs for this purpose. Also that you're willing to drop a lot of money on them. Is this a professional endeavor for many of you or a hobby that you're willing to throw big money at???

In other words, does your password recovery activity pay for the rig costs?

Is renting these rigs for "projects" in demand?

Lastly, I have a box running 5, R 290's for scrypt mining, what can I do with that in Hashcat world?
