The specifications of Zcash state that the coins will be issued at 12.5 ZEC per block with a block time of 2.5 minutes and rewards will be halving each 4 years or about 840000 blocks. This is pretty much consistent with what is happening with Bitcoin, though with BTC we have started at 50 BTC per block and 10 minutes target block time. With ZEC this translates to pretty much the same amount of coins for the same time period, but achieved with shorter block time and lower block reward, still every 10 minutes there should be 4 blocks totaling 50 ZEC. Because of the difference in specifications the first 4 years will result in 4 times more blocks than what Bitcoin had in the first four years – 840,000 instead of just 210,000.
This top is fairly thin as AMD options are either impossible to find in stock at this time, or come with artificially inflated prices that make them unprofitable. The RX480 and RX580 families have hash rates between 250 and 300 MH/s, which is not that impressive given their scarce availability. Similar hash rates can be achieved by NVIDIA’s GTX 1060 models, which tend to cost less, are widely available and are less power hungry, so it turns out that, overall, ZEC mining is a win for the green side.
Experimentation with various GPU selections in the calculator will reveal a card with the best price-to-performance-to-power consumption combination (expressed as MH/s per currency unit). Keep in mind that AMD cards outperform Nvidia cards for Ethereum mining purposes on the EthashAlgo, but AMD doesn’t beat Nvidia when it comes to the Equihash algorithm using the EWBF Miner.
NFC tokens combined with a Bluetooth token may operate in several models, thus working in both a connected and a disconnected state. NFC authentication works when closer than 1 foot (0.3 meters). The NFC protocol bridges short distances to reader while the Bluetooth connection serves for data provision with token both to enable authentication. Also when the Bluetooth link is not connected, the token may serve the locally stored authentication information in coarse positioning to NFC reader and relieves from exact positioning to a connector.
The specific dynamics of an ICO may vary. They typically include a few weeks of raising money, at least, and try to raise as much as there is demand. Occasionally, some ICOs will instead cap the total amount raised (such as DigixDAO which capped the total fundraising at around $5.5 million). A small percentage of tokens are usually reserved for early promotion bounties, such as forum signature campaigns or social media and newsletter campaigns.
The Financial Times calls ICOs “unregulated issuances of cryptocoins where investors can raise money in bitcoin or other [cryptocurrencies],” which is accurate, especially if you underline the word “unregulated.” We’ll get to that in a moment.
High yield bonds are more likely to have call provisions, which means they can be redeemed or paid off at the issuer’s discretion prior to maturity. Typically an issuer will call a bond when interest rates fall, potentially leaving investors with capital losses or losses in income and less favorable reinvestment options. Prior to purchasing a corporate bond, determine whether call provisions exist.
Hello all, I’m pretty new to reddit AND mining. I built my first rig a few weeks ago and have been mining ether but I’m about to switch over to zcash. I believe the mining difficulty for zcash will double every 4 years. Is that correct? Does that mean that we could have roughly 3+ years to mine without being bogged down by difficulty increase?
While there have been plenty of success stories, in the 2nd quarter of last year, an Ethereum based project named The DAO entered an ICO to launch an investment fund without a fund manager, with the investors being involved in all of the investment decisions upon launch. The ICO raised almost US$150m, almost 70% of 2016’s total capital raised through ICOs. By mid-2016, hackers managed to get away with more than US$40m from the DAO, bringing the project to a grinding halt and the value of Ether down with it, Ether’s price falling from US$19 to under $12 in just a matter of days. In the interest of market capitalizations and protecting the investors, Ethereum created a new blockchain and ultimately reversed the theft, leaving the original Ethereum blockchain, now known as Ethereum Classic behind, a small minority continuing to support and assign value to the old blockchain.

Using AirDrop is easy and reliable. In recent years, Apple made the feature rock-solid. It’s likely that the only troubleshooting you’ll have to do is to make sure the person you’re sending to has AirDrop switched on on their iPhone or iPad.
The ALUs of a GPU are partitioned into groups, and each group of ALUs shares management, so members of the group cannot be made to work on separate tasks. They can either all work on nearly identical variations of one single task, in perfect sync with one another, or nothing at all. Trying different hashes repeatedly – the process behind Bitcoin mining – is a very repetitive task suitable for a GPU, with each attempt varying only by the changing of one number (called a “nonce”) in the data being hashed.
If you have set disabledeprecation in your configuration file or you are using third party software which has done so, you are in danger of splitting off from the upgrade and remaining on the old protocol.
The main premise of an ICO is that the cryptocurrency venture can create a digital coin or a token which is subsequently offered for sale to the public in an initial offering. You can think of an ICO as a similar process to an initial public offering (IPO) with the main difference that instead of equity share in a company, ICO will grant the investor a new coin or a token. Depending on the structure of the ICO the investor receives the coins for their investment. Venture capital firms and in rare cases for public investors, they are granted equity for the investment in the coin along with voting rights and dividends. The more common use case for an ICO is the value they provide to the investor which gives you access to using a specific project or a service. The venture, in turn, uses this money to grow and expand their platform.
a government, corporation, municipality, or agency that has issued a security (e.g., a bond) in order to raise capital or to repay other debt; the issuer goes to an underwriter to get their securities sold in the new issue market; for certificates of deposit (CDs), this is the bank that has issued the CD; in the case of fixed income securities, the issuer of the security is the primary determinant of the security’s characteristics (e.g., coupon interest rate, maturity, call features, etc.)
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:
This list is now outdated since AMD released their new RX Vega line. They dominate the competition especially after tweaking. Plus with the right drivers, some of the under performing GPUs are now pretty decent. Check out newest review of the best GPUs for mining: https://cryptosrus.com/best-gpu-for-mining/

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.
Tokens issued from an ICO will have a value, with the ICO allocating equivalent to equity to the token, which gives the investor ownership with voting rights and, in certain cases, qualifying for dividends.
Of note: I am not giving you professional investment advise. You need to do what you feel is best for you. I am just relating what I have found to work and not work for myself. You can use what you see in this video as a possible guide but your own success or failure may vary. 🙂
I’ve had success both ways, so if you run into an issue with one method, delete the drivers and try the other method. If you need to remove your drivers, use the DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) program from Guru3d.com to remove everything cleanly, then start over.
While we cannot provide advice for investors deciding where to place bets, the Zcash blockchain does provide users with a means for private, decentralized payments right now. Further, the Zcash team will be working to ensure that any such improvements to Ethereum benefit Zcash users and vice versa.

One of the easiest ways to squeeze a bit more return out of your stock investments is simply to target stocks or mutual funds that have nice dividend payouts. If two stocks perform exactly the same over a given period of time, but one has no dividend and the other pays out 3% per year in dividends, then the latter stock would be a better choice.
