For example, one of the most popular peer to peer lending platforms, Lending Club, is averaging a default rate of just over 5%. If you screen your loans well and avoid some of these defaults, then you can earn some really nice returns.
The acronym probably sounds familiar, and that’s on purpose—an ICO does indeed work similarly to an initial public offering. Instead of offering shares in a company, though, a firm is instead offering digital assets called “tokens.”
Another downside is that contactless tokens have relatively short battery lives; usually only 5–6 years, which is low compared to USB tokens which may last more than 10 years. Though some tokens do allow the batteries to be changed, thus reducing costs.
You should see gas prices in your ETH wallets depending on which one you use. A rule of thumb to apply when changing your gas prices is to x10 the initial amount for your transaction to go through in peak periods.
Fantastic post. Thank you for this. Here is heading a local.conf that works for ZenCash with global rules. This is for people who don’t feel comfortable setting each GPU individually. I plugged all GPUs in at once and it worked right away. Of course replace with your own wallet address.
After you extract the Zec Miner package you will already find predefined .BAT files for known pools, but for the sake of learning, let’s create a new one and set it up and ready to work with the zcash.flypool.org ! so go and create a start.bat file with notepad and add the following code:

In early September, 2017, the People’s Bank of China officially banned ICOs, citing it as disruptive to economic and financial stability. The central bank said tokens cannot be used as currency on the market and banks cannot offer services relating to ICOs. As a result, both bitcoin and ethereum tumbled, and it was viewed as a sign that regulations of cryptocurrencies are coming. The ban also penalizes offerings already completed.
