It’s hard to say in advance how the privacy features of Zcash will compare to the analogous future planned features for Ethereum. Given that the Zcash blockchain and team are focused primarily on privacy, there’s an advantage to this specialization in terms of efficiency, security, and usability.

It is best practice to stop sending transactions if you think they will not be confirmed before the network upgrade activation height. Transactions that are not mined before the activation height will need to be resent after the upgrade.
Claymore’s Zcash (ZEC) AMD miner has been updated a couple of times already since the release of the initial version from some days ago. The number of optimizations and hashrate improvements with pretty much each major update has been tremendous, bringing back to life many of the old AMD Radeon GPUs such as 7950/7970 or the 280X, some of the most popular mining video cards for the last few years. The latest release, already a major version 6 brought more fixes and optimizations in terms of performance. As one would expect Nvidia is left behind once more, even though there were some signs that recently it was starting to catch up to the levels of performance of AMD GPUs, it is now yet again significantly slower. So owners of Nvidia-based mining rigs might want to switch to some other alternative for mining at the moment after the latest performance boosts from Claymore. Do have in mind however that Claymore’s Zcash miner does come with a 2.5% dev fee, below is a list of major changes and updates of the miner after the initial release:
A growing trend for alternative asset investors looking for high yield investments is to invest in loans originated by online lending portals. This is called “peer to peer” lending, or P2P, as it is more like lending money to a neighbor or peer. The online portal connects investors and borrowers and provides a platform that sets market rates for the loans. Online lenders are able to reduce typical loan funding expenses making the interest rate for borrowers lower than traditional hard money loan sources. These loans can be pooled together or funded by one person, meaning you can lend small amounts to many people, or a larger amount to one person. In theory, the borrower pays back the loan from their bank account directly to your self-directed IRA account. Just as with any loan, you take on the risk that the borrower may not repay the loan.

Another interesting option is the AMD R9 390X – a card capable of a hash rate of around 30 MH/s, and a price tag just slightly larger than what the RX480s and RX580s sell for. The AMD R9 390X is the predecessor of the RX480 and uses an older architecture, but its 512-bit memory interface allows it to provide better performance. Just as in the case of the 295×2, though, the AMD R9 390X is discontinued, but there are still a few new units out there. As for the used ones, people selling these tend to be tech-savvy people that have a good idea of what they are selling, so don’t expect to find them very cheap. Nevertheless, the fact that the R9 390X offers more than half the hash performance of a 295×2 for less than half of the power consumption and, more importantly, you can actually find one of these cards on the market, makes it a very appealing option.

The shift in focus away from the use of venture capitalists for fund raising has taken the market by storm and the numbers of ICOs continue to rise, with the liquidity associated with ICOs over VC funding driving investors into a frenzy.
With the interest Zcash is getting I highly doubt that any single miner will be able to pull off a 51% attack, that would mean a tremendous hashrate controlled by a single user. If there is such a user he would most likely be willing to mine and profit from it than using it maliciously. I’m actually yet to see a coin being destroyed by a 51% attack and double spending… though some smaller have suffered from loses from such attacks. It is not like you can just point out your Bitcoin mining farm to mine Zcash, because ZEC uses new and different proof of work algorithm and you can only mine it with CPUs and GPUs. Renting all available hashrate from a service such as NiceHash will also not be enough for 51%… and before trying to double spend coins you need to actually have some, so you need to either buy or mine a significant amount first.
Lately, ICO has been the mother of some of the most innovative ideas awaiting to find acceptance from conventional investors. Indicoin has been blessed already of huge support, thus easily surpassing SoftCap. Team aims at reaching the Hard Cap too. Indicoin is now on the path of gifting society of a revolutionary tool which can be used in endless ways to create a difference.
If it can’t be disabled in the menu settings when you swipe up on home screen. you have to go thru settings>general>restrictions. Here you have to turn the airdrop setting on and then you can go back to the swipe up menu on your home screen to turn it off. Weird and f*$%ing annoying.
The short answer is maybe. Legally, ICOs have existed in an extremely gray area because arguments can be made both for and against the fact that they’re just new, unregulated financial assets. The SEC’s recent decision, however, has since managed to clear up some of that gray area. In some cases, the token is simply a utility token, meaning it gives the owner access to a specific protocol or network; thus it may not be classified as a financial security. On the other hand, if the token is an equity token, meaning that it’s only purpose is to appreciate in value, then it looks a lot more like a security.
