7200 is not "about" - it IS twice the number of seconds in an HOUR.

60s * 60m * 24h = 86400s per day / 7200 bitcoins per day = 12 seconds
per bitcoin

if that's at 82.77TH/s then 993.24TH = 1BTC

I wonder what else humanity might be doing with such resources if not
competing for shares of the future?  Or if ultimately that's what
we're doing no matter what we use to measure the shares...  hmm.
