Greetings!

Here’s a question for lawyers - but I figure y’all might know something
about this question which came up in one of the high school class here: is
it legal to mine bitcoin in the US?

I know something about it from a *technical* perspective, and also know
it’s really not useful/feasible anymore (arguably).  But what the legality
of this?  Some students wanted to setup a system to mine bitcoin, but the
teacher (and I) could not give a definitive answer as to whether or not
this would be *legal* for a school project.

Thoughts?
