ICO is always scam because those offering it buy into it themselves to fool you so you think there would be high demand – and when buying their own ico they get to keep the coins they buy from their own offering PLUS the bitcoin and they will dump those extra coins on you later too.
If you are a gamer you most likely have a video card that can mine cryptocurrency for you for a profit. Here is how you can make some extra money letting your graphics card do the work for you when you are not using your PC.
Usually, AirDrop just works. If it’s not on, simply switch it on right there when you’re ready to share. If you don’t see the recipient’s device in the AirDrop row in the Share Sheet, you might need to fix something on their device.
Tap on the person you wish to share with. That person will receive a notification that you wish to share content with them. If he or she accepts, the content will automatically save to his or her device.
In the long run we intend to improve the functionality of Zcash shielded addresses and to deprecate Zcash transparent addresses, so that all transactions are shielded and so that the user experience is simpler.
a.) What are your thoughts on going for a pre-built ASIC miner (or rig) instead of building one for the first time? I assume building one with say 6GPUs might save upto 1500$ (instead of buying it), but do you think its worth it for a newbie?
The principal and interest in fixed contracts is backed by both the financial strength of the life insurance companies that issue them, as well as by state guaranty funds that reimburse investors who purchased an annuity contract from an insolvent carrier. Although there have been instances of investors who lost money in fixed annuities because the issuing company went bankrupt, the odds of this happening today are extremely low, especially if the contract is purchased from a financially sound carrier.
You’ve probably heard of Bitcoin, but new cryptocurrencies get introduced almost every day through a process called an Initial Coin Offering. CNN Tech’s Ramy Zabarah breaks down how an ICO differs from an IPO and whether you should invest in one.
Cryptocurrencies are based on distributed ledger technologies which enable anyone to purchase or transfer their cryptocurrency holdings to any other person without the need for an intermediary (such as an exchange) or to update a central record of ownership. Cryptocurrencies can be transferred easily across national and jurisdictional boundaries. This makes it difficult for central authorities to control and monitor the ownership and movement of holdings of cryptocurrencies.
Time-synchronized one-time passwords change constantly at a set time interval; e.g., once per minute. To do this some sort of synchronization must exist between the client’s token and the authentication server. For disconnected tokens this time-synchronization is done before the token is distributed to the client. Other token types do the synchronization when the token is inserted into an input device. The main problem with time-synchronized tokens is that they can, over time, become unsynchronized. However, some such systems, such as RSA’s SecurID, allow the user to resynchronize the server with the token, sometimes by entering several consecutive passcodes. Most also cannot have replaceable batteries and only last up to 5 years before having to be replaced – so there is additional cost.
Windows XP added support for 32-bit color (16.7 million colors plus alpha channel transparency) icon images, thus allowing semitransparent areas like shadows, anti-aliasing, and glass-like effects to be drawn in an icon. Windows XP, by default, employs 48×48 pixel icons in Windows Explorer. Windows XP can be forced to use icons as large as 256×256 by modifying the Shell icon size value but this would cause all 32×32 icons throughout the shell to be upscaled. Microsoft only recommended icon sizes up to 48×48 pixels for Windows XP. Windows XP can downscale 256×256 and larger icons if no closer image size is available.
Cryptocurrency mining is one of the hottest topics around at this time, and it’s easy to see why: with the prices of all the important cryptocurrencies going up and reaching all-time highs, it is now more profitable than ever to get into the mining business and start earning. Getting started with cryptocurrency mining is not as easy as it sounds, though, as you will need a bit of technical know-how in order to pick the right components and get mining. Luckily, we’re here to help – we have put together an introductory guide to the world of cryptocurrencies, along with a selection of some of the best GPUs for cryptocurrency mining. You are welcome!
Top Ten Holdings: This value represents the top ten holdings included in the portfolio on a percent of assets basis. Equity holdings are grouped to include common shares, depository receipts, rights and warrants issued by the same company. Holdings are rounded to the nearest whole number, which may result in the display of less than ten holdings.
This feature ensures you won’t just appear in other people’s AirDrop panels as you walk around. People won’t be able to see your name if you’re nearby, and they won’t be able to send anything to you. Only those in your contacts will have permission to see you.
Zcash does not: encrypt data for multisignature, protect against correlations made with public transactions (for example, when Zcash is traded to/from another cryptocurrency) or obfuscate IP addresses. It is possible to use it in conjunction with an anonymizing network such as Tor, in order to obtain protection against network eavesdropping which is complementary to transaction privacy.
The first indication that a government agency was looking into ICOs came in mid-2016. This was in response to The DAO, a crowd-funded vehicle on the Ethereum smart contract being attacked and drained of funds. The SEC (the government agency responsible for protecting investors and capital markets in the United States) is said to be looking into The DAO.
On the flipside, AT&T hasn’t really been seen — or priced — as a growth stock in ages. It’s appreciated by investors as one of the market’s better dividend stocks to buy, and rightfully so. Its yield of 5.5% is still well above the market norm, and until consumers abandon their cell phones and abandon all forms of video entertainment, the company will be able to keep paying out dividends.
The ICO file format is an image file format for computer icons in Microsoft Windows. ICO files contain one or more small images at multiple sizes and color depths, such that they may be scaled appropriately. In Windows, all executables that display an icon to the user, on the desktop, in the Start Menu, or in Windows Explorer, must carry the icon in ICO format.
The takeaway here is that the hashrate has followed the price explosion, which really took off in May and June 2017. What an amazing bull run! Up to over $400 USD from under $50 USD in a few short months.
When purchasing mining hardware, you will want to look at these metrics: Th/s and W/GH. Th/s, or sometimes Gh/s, measures a miner’s terahashes (Th/s) or gigahashes (Gh/s) per second and is called hash rate. A higher hash rate means a more powerful miner. You can use this simple calculator from Bitcoin Wisdom to determine how much money an amount of hash power will earn per month.
If you watch my latest youtube video, CryptoCurrency Mining Strategies and What I am Mining Sept 2017 (below), you will see that I advocate mining with many different types of miners, and mining many different types of cryptocurrencies, all at the same time. For example, in the past few months I have mined BTC, DGB, BCH, ETC, EXP, ETH, UBQ, ZEN, ZEC, LTC, MUE, DASH, and others. I also run masternodes and stake different cryptocurrencies to participate in other crypto generating activities.
However, you should be prepared to abide by regulations and enforcements by the government as the ICO space matures. Basically, you should expect for ICOs to receive regulations similar to investing in stock markets and IPOs. As of today, there is one notable regulation for potential ICO investors:
I have one Zotac mini 6gb-good card, but have tendency to heat up a little comparing with MSI 1080, which are rock solid at 500 without any tunung. Without any adjustment Zotac does 285mh on Linux. I am gearing up to do some power state improvement; no doubt they can do more.
Use cases may be limited at this time, but Apple has paved a way for developers to integrate fast and easy file sharing at the system level, meaning one embedded solution can be called upon to handle all transfers.
You should also ask yourself if you really think that your business will actively benefit from an ICO. Basically, after reading this article, you should consult someone who can take a look at your specific idea and tell you if its a slam dunk or not. If it’s not, you might be better off going through safer avenues of funding.
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.

The GTX 1080 Ti takes 2 PCIE connectors per GPU, so you need 12 total for a 6 GPU rig. We have an EVGA 1600 watt PSU that just arrived today which I will be using for a new 6x GTX 1080 Ti rig once all the parts are here. —- You can go with a 2 PSU set up also, ideally with 1 server PSU and an ATX PSU, probably the ideal setup. If you will have your rig mining in a living space though I personally can’t stand the higher pitched noise of the server psu fans…. so for us (in a living space specifically) it was a no go this time around.
A closed end fund is a form of a mutual fund. Like a mutual fund, it contains a pool of investor money. Unlike a mutual fund, once the fund has issued a certain number of shares, it closes to new investors, so to buy shares you must buy them just like you buy a stock; on an exchange from someone else who is selling their shares. Many closed end funds use leverage (they can borrow against the to buy additional investments) which can contribute to their high yields. Not all closed end funds are structured to pay income, and some can distribute principal as part of their monthly or quarterly distributions, so search carefully.
I think it’s a “discovery” issue, because people hit the sharing button, then if they pick AirDrop, they see … nothing. So they ignore it and share to Facebook and never think of it again for the most part.
