Scientists at the Zcash company, and academia, are actively researching postquantum-secure alternatives to the affected cryptographic components (see issue #805). We plan to monitor developments in postquantum-secure components, and if/when they are mature and practical, update the Zcash protocol to use them.
Once you have decided to start mining Zcash and have a good idea of what Hardware you want to use the next step is to find the right Software. There are several types of software that work with different hardware configurations including the official Zcash miner.
For now, ICO fund raising falls well short of the levels seen during dot.com era, which should provide some level of comfort, the only concern being a collapse in the market should the volume of fraudsters surge over the near-term, or there be a collapse in the valuation of cryptocurrencies.

I hope Apple adds push notification support to AirDrop in iOS 8. The requirement that both devices be unlocked (or recently locked) to initiate AirDrop is ridiculous, and it should only be necessary when there’s no Internet connection. The device could make note of which devices are nearby when it’s unlocked, and then compare that list to the push notification Apple sends to see if it’s likely that the device requesting AirDrop is still in the vicinity. If the requesting device isn’t on the list, AirDrop would refuse it, but if it is, AirDrop would initiate a connection, verify it, and then alert the user.
Initial Coin Offerings, also known as ICOs is the cryptocurrency version of crowdfunding and are a part of the crypto world that is most likely here to stay. It’s one of the easiest and most efficient methods for companies and individuals to fund their projects and for regular users to invest in projects they see value in. An Initial Coin Offering is an event that usually extends over a period of one week or more and in which everyone is allowed to purchase newly issued tokens in exchange for established cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (BTC) or Ether (ETH).
Some argue that crowdfunding projects might be Ethereum’s “killer application” given the sheer size and frequency of ICOs. Never before have pre-product startups been able to raise this much money and in this little time. Aragon raised around $25 million in just 15 minutes, Basic Attention Token raised $35 million in only 30 seconds, and Status.im raised $270 million in a few hours. With few regulations and such ease of use, this ICO climate has come under scrutiny from many in the community as well as various regulatory bodies around the world.
ICO file format is also similar to the .ICNS file format that is used for icons on Macs. An icon library can be made to package .ICO files by creating a file with an .ICL extension. In web design, an .ICO file can be used to create a small website logo which appears next to the URL in the address bar.
Turn off unneeded services on the BIOS, keep all the PCI settings on Auto, set the graphics TOLUD to 3.5GB. Make the power come on whenever power is applied to the board. Here is a set of pictures for BIOS settings for a similar motherboard.
an interest-bearing promise to pay a specified sum of money (the principal amount) on a specific date; bonds are a form of debt obligation; categories of bonds are corporate, municipal, treasury, agency/GSE

Hi Marilyn, Imgur.com is a good site for image uploads, just as a tip. The Mega page won’t load for me for some reason, probably due to my browser config. Google Drive works though. The one you want to download is Zec miner 0.3.4b – or whatever the latest working version mentioned on the forum page happens to be. I’m not really the problem. Sounds like you downloaded the miner OK, just it’s named differently? That won’t be an issue. I suggest you run some virus scans on the miner you downloaded and then proceed with the rest of… Read more »
The investment seeks to provide a high level of current income. The fund invests at least 80% of its net assets, plus any borrowings for investment purposes, in below investment grade bonds (sometimes called “high yield bonds” or “junk bonds”) which are rated, at the time of purchase, Ba1 or lower by Moody’s and BB+ or lower by S&P Global. It also invests in bank loans (also known as senior floating rate interests) and securities of foreign issuers, including those located in developing or emerging countries. more
Smart contract audits are done by companies that specialize in reviewing smart contracts. This means that these companies (that are run by experts in smart contracts) do a full audit and review of the code inside the contract to make sure that nothing is malicious or broken.
For the CPU part of this guide, we are going to use Nicehash miner. While this miner works for both CPU and GPU, we are going to get the best performance if we use different miners for CPU and GPU. This is because the Claymore miner is faster but only works for CPU.
I think nowadays altcoin mining become faded. Since mining is not a good solution for scaling up the altcoin. The altcoin is going to change from POW to POs. And there are more and more ICO with fixed amount of tokens. So the future of mining is not so optimistic…
For just a single miner, edit the local.conf file with nano or vim to configure the miner to work for you. Here is an example configuration for mining Zcash. Put this at the beginning of the local.conf file:
An initial coin offering is similar in concept to an initial public offering (IPO), both a process in which companies raise capital, while an ICO is an investment that gives the investor a cryptocoin, more commonly known as a coin or a token in return for investment, which is quite different to the issuance of securities as is the case in an IPO investment.
It is mining to the EthosDistro address. That needs to be changed. I recommend not using this screen for making changes, and instead using SSH from your PC. Here are some options for SSH on different operating systems:
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.
This simple Bitcoin mining calculator will allow you to determine how much you can profit from a certain Bitcoin miner. It takes into account all relevant costs such as hardware, electricity and fees. See below for detailed instructions on how to use it.
Series I bonds consist of two components: a fixed interest rate return and an adjustable inflation-linked return. They are somewhat similar to TIPS because they have the inflation adjustment as part of the total return. The fixed rate never changes, but the inflation return rate is adjusted every 6 months and can also be negative (which would bring your total return down, not up).
Think of your ETH address as your bank account number and your ETH wallet private key as your credit card PIN number. It’s OK to give people your bank account number for transactions but it’s not OK for you to give people your PIN number.
Specify negative value to enable monitoring (get statistics) but disable management (restart, uploading files), for example, “-mport -3333” enables port 3333 for remote monitoring, but remote management will be blocked.
With a Certificate of Deposit (CD), you deposit your money for a specific length of time in exchange for a guaranteed return on your money no matter what happens to the interest rates during that time period.
As you can see, pricing has some fairly wild swings. As another example, this article was written Saturday, 20 May 2017 when the price was $104 USD to 1 ZEC. On Sunday 21 May 2017 the price hit $123. At the time of this publication (9AM Pacific 22 May 2017) 1 ZEC is now around $248. Prices fluctuate, a lot.
You can also use a hardware wallet such as Trezor, Ledger Nano S, or Jaxx, a popular supported web wallet. You can even mine directly to exchanges that have support, which is primarily what I’ve been doing since November 2016 (I’ve been mining to Bittrex).
The difficult ecological situation on our planet encourages humanity to look for solutions that will reduce emissions of harmful substances into the atmosphere. According to official data around the world, about 70% of emitted substances polluting the atmosphere are accounted for by cars. Today in many countries there are laws that regulate permissible amount of harmful substances in the exhaust…
In general the bond market is volatile, and fixed income securities carry interest rate risk. (As interest rates rise, bond prices usually fall, and vice versa. This effect is usually more pronounced for longer-term securities.) Fixed income securities also carry inflation risk, liquidity risk, call risk and credit and default risks for both issuers and counterparties.
SILENTARMY is a Zcash miner for Linux written in OpenCL with multi-GPU support. The Stratum protocol is implemented for connecting to mining pools. It runs best on AMD GPUs but has also been reported to work on other OpenCL devices such as Xeon Phi, Intel GPUs, and through OpenCL CPU drivers. (Nvidia GPUs are not currently supported due to an issue.)
Some settings should be modified in Windows to get you ready for mining. First, you don’t want your computer to go into Sleep mode, as it will interrupt your mining. Go to your Power Settings and set Turn Off/Sleep to Never.
If you mine to a hardware wallet or exchange, change your pool settings so it only deposits once a day. More than once a day deposit into a hardware wallet or exchange can cause issues. And perform maintenance on your hardware wallet!
