Jeff, I am glad you included p2p lending on this list as a middle risk investment (and thanks for linking to my article by the way). With Lending Club hitting $1 billion and becoming cash flow positive I don’t think it should be considered a high risk investment. I think it is the best risk/reward investment available today – one where double digit returns are quite possible.
Apple introduced AirDrop in 2011. AirDrop enables easy transfer of files between Macs and Apple devices over the same Wi-Fi or Bluetooth network using the latest iteration of Apple’s useful Bonjour zero-configuration networking protocol. Because the system creates a peer-to-peer Wi-Fi network in order to transfer the files, AirDrop can handle large file sizes (video, or photos, for example). This makes it useful for people who often need to exchange large files with colleagues, such as those working in magazine or film production.
The block chain is a public record of Bitcoin transactions in chronological order. The block chain is shared between all Bitcoin users. It is used to verify the permanence of Bitcoin transactions and to prevent double spending.
While stocks are one way to skin the dividend cat and high-yield bonds are another, there’s an option that falls in between the two … preferred stocks. And, the VanEck Vectors Preferred Securities ex Financials ETF (NYSEARCA:PFXF) may be the easiest and cleanest way to stake a claim in that narrow sliver, collecting a dividend on the order of 5.3% for your time as of the latest look.
Underscoring bitcoin’s maturation, the currency set new price records this week as the value of a single coin crossed the $2,000 threshold. Since bitcoin was announced in 2009, and certainly since I first wrote about it in 2013, the ecosystem of cryptocurrencies has exploded.
This form of investment is especially risky because it places time requirements on the purchase or sale of securities. Professional investors often discourage the practice of timing the market, and this is why options can be dangerous or rewarding.
The SEC decision may have provided some clarity to the status of utility vs security tokens; however, there are still plenty of room for testing the boundaries of legalities. For now, and until further regulatory limits are imposed, entrepreneurs will continue to take advantage of this new phenomenon.
I usually put my miners on one cryptocurrency and leave it there for a month or two. Since prefer to mine and hold, I like to mine a cryptocurrency that has less competition. Some people are not able to mine and hold, and instead must mine and sell the rewards that they mine. I still like to make sure that I am mining one of the more profitable coins, so as long as it is close to the most profitable, I am fine with that.
It is important to know, that mining on a personal computer is supposed to be done for the purpose of learning. In order to generate profit and achieve massive cooling as well, it is better to build or purchase dedicated mining machines.
International ICOs may need to consider U.S. regulations to avoid falling foul of the SEC in the event of U.S. persons acquiring tokens. There are two choices for the coin-issuing company, if they do not plan on seeking a full SEC registration:

While many high yield bonds are issued by former investment grade companies in decline, the high yield market also provides financing opportunities for emerging companies seeking working capital for expansion or to fund acquisitions.
Imagine a team of developers who are working on a new promising project. They might need to raise money from public, so they create their own cryptocurrency. Those who want to support the project, would buy the rights of token possession during the initial crowdsale phase. As a result, the project gets the capital to fund development, and the audience members get their tokens’ shares. This whole process is called ICO.

A cryptographic signature is a mathematical mechanism that allows someone to prove ownership. In the case of Bitcoin, a Bitcoin wallet and its private key(s) are linked by some mathematical magic. When your Bitcoin software signs a transaction with the appropriate private key, the whole network can see that the signature matches the bitcoins being spent. However, there is no way for the world to guess your private key to steal your hard-earned bitcoins.
Selling Profile tells the calculator how to use the Price Change value. Price Change must be set to something other than 0 to have any effect on the profitability projections. Selling Profile has 4 different options:
The Bitcoin block reward is at least one factor that is predictable. Every 4 years, the amount of bitcoins rewarded in each block is cut in half. The reward started at 50 bitcoins per block, and is now 25 bitcoins per block. In July 2016, this reward will fall to just 12.5 bitcoins per block.
Servers usually have very limited or no GPU facilities as they are mostly managed over a text-based remote interface. Most mainstream computers have much slower but less power consuming and cheaper IGPs (Integrated Graphics Processor), which are GPUs as well but integrated directly into the chipset and soldered onto the motherboard, rather than separate, more powerful but power consuming AGP or PCIe cards with GPUs, but separate GPUs. Powerful GPUs are needed mostly for graphic intensive tasks such as gaming or video editing. For example, the translucent windows in Windows 7, or technologies like Mac OS X’s Quartz, which powers the Aqua desktop and its beautiful, water-like graphical effects and animations such as bulging the Dock in a smooth animation when the mouse is moved to the lower edge of the screen or “sucking” windows into the Dock when they are minimized – these are powered by GPUs.
An exchange wallet and a personal wallet is completely different. When you store your tokens on an exchange, you are putting your trust in the integrity and security of the platform to keep your tokens safe.

The basic idea is that even though there is a public blockchain the from and to addresses as well as the amount of transactions is actually not directly accessible by just anyone… you need a key to be able to access that data.
The holder of any debt subject to interest rate risk and credit risk, inflationary risk, currency risk, duration risk, convexity risk, repayment of principal risk, streaming income risk, liquidity risk, default risk, maturity risk, reinvestment risk, market risk, political risk, and taxation adjustment risk. Interest rate risk refers to the risk of the market value of a bond changing due to changes in the structure or level of interest rates or credit spreads or risk premiums. The credit risk of a high-yield bond refers to the probability and probable loss upon a credit event (i.e., the obligor defaults on scheduled payments or files for bankruptcy, or the bond is restructured), or a credit quality change is issued by a rating agency including Fitch, Moody’s, or Standard & Poors.
United States In July 2017 the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) indicated that it could have the authority to apply federal securities law to ICOs. The SEC did not state that all blockchain tokens (ICOs) would necessarily be considered securities, but that determination would be made on a case-by-case basis. The SEC action may encourage more mainstream investors to invest in ICOs, although ICOs typically prevent U.S. investor participation to remain out of the jurisdiction of the United States government. The SEC charged Maksim Zaslavskiy for fraud in September 2017 in connection with the ICOs for RECoin and DRC World. The SEC ruled that celebrity ICO endorsements must disclose the amount of any compensation paid for the endorsement. In December 2017, the SEC issued an order stating that the utility-token ICO of Munchee Inc. was classified as a security.
