The basic concept of a mining rig is to have an open case where you could mount your video cards, motherboard, PSU and a storage device/SSD. See THIS LINK for an example of how one looks like and how you could actually make it yourself for cheap !
Whenever I turn AirDrop on, my Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are automatically turned on. If I turn the Wi-Fi off, and try to AirDrop, sometimes it works, but sometimes it doesn’t. It never works if I turn the Bluetooth off instead.
Sol/s measures the rate at which Equihash solutions are found. Each one of those solutions is tested against the current target (after adding to the block header and hashing), in the same way that in Bitcoin each nonce variation is tested against the target. That is what we mean by Sol/s === H/s – they are measuring the same thing, and it is the same metric that everyone already uses for other PoW algorithms.
Annuities are a point of contention for some investors because shady financial advisors have over-promoted them to individuals where the annuity wasn’t the right product for their financial goals. They don’t have to be scary things; annuities can be a good option for certain investors who need help stabilizing their portfolio over a long period of time.
Conflict is inherent to human nature! So arms trafficking will always be in demand. A human is venturous. So despite all prohibitions gambling has always been and will be present in this world in one way or another. Do you want to earn money without any risk? We offer you to invest funds into opening casinos in free-trade areas. In other words, to put a win-win stake on a sure profit. We all know…
Investors will also need to be aware that certain wallets may be incompatible with the tokens and are therefore not visible following purchase and receipt. For this reason it’s essential to have a wallet which permits the export of private keys, so that it is permissible to transfer the tokens to a new compatible wallet.
AirDrop is a method of sharing files, and just about everything else, between Apple devices. What makes it especially powerful and convenient is that it can be used when there are no WiFi networks, no cellular signal or any other networking service.
And while dividend stocks and funds can certainly play a legitimate role as a long-term investment in a diversified retirement portfolio, they also do not provide the principal stability of cash equivalents, despite the many stories you may see about “safe” high-yield stocks.
In that particular milieu of freshly launched coins is a newly famous transaction type we need to understand called the “Initial Coin Offering” or ICO. An ICO is akin to an IPO, but in temporal reverse (sort of). Although confusing, it has recently acquired prominence as a favored way to launch a new cryptocurrency.
Public sites, such as Blockchainhub, advise that before investing it is important not to use any kind of an online wallet or exchange. Backers are generally required to export their private keys into another wallet in order to access their new coins, so it is vital to ensure that the wallet’s private keys are exportable.
Due diligence tends to be expensive and when it comes to cryptocurrency economies and ICOs, the market is beginning to see the presence of rating agencies, who conduct the due diligence, carrying out the necessary analysis of the information at hand, with the rating agencies publishing their research reducing some of the risks associated with investing in ICOs, self-policing coming in ahead of any more formal regulatory oversight.
I didn’t know that there are as many low risk investments that can give high returns available before, I only knew mutual funds and money market funds and I don’t have any idea about the rest. Really helpful post, thanks Jeff!
Another important thing to consider about Zcash block rewards is the developer’s share of all of the blocks that will be mined before the first halving occurs. Each PoW block is being divided 80% for the miners and 20% to the Zcash team until the first halving occurs when 100% of the mined coins will go to the miners. This makes the regular block reward of 12.5 ZEC divided as 10 ZEC per miners and 2.5 ZEC for the Zcash team initially. When you take the slow start with linearly growing block reward this will make the actual block reward going to miners in the first days even smaller…
Our fundamental philosophy is consensuality. Currently the Zcash Company (CEO: Zooko Wilcox) is effectively leading development of the science, the protocol, and the reference client, as well as public communications and many other important tasks. In the long run the newly formed Zcash Foundation is expected to take over some of these roles, especially education, consumer protection, and the advancement of science. For now they say that they intend to keep letting the Zcash Company do its thing.
Each miner is provided with a reward for Zcash mining successfully. In every 10 minutes, the block rewards issued are 50 Zcash (ZEC). The space between the blocks is of 2.5 minutes and each block produces around 12.5 ZEC. From earned coins, 10% coins will be given to Founders Reward.
In finance, a high-yield bond (non-investment-grade bond, speculative-grade bond, or junk bond) is a bond that is rated below investment grade. These bonds have a higher risk of default or other adverse credit events, but typically pay higher yields than better quality bonds in order to make them attractive to investors. Sometimes the company can provide new bonds as a part of yield which can only be redeemed after its expiry or maturity.
Or you might even squeeze out 2% by locking your dough into a longer-term CD (although, as this Financial Industry Regulatory Authority alert warns, you should beware of pitches for high-yielding CDs that may actually be designed to lure you into other investments.)
One thing I’ve always struggled with, when considering altcoins, is the chance or possibility of a big bitcoin miner pointing their hashing power at the altcoin blockchain for an hour or two, completely messing it up, as a strategic move to kill it as a competitor.
a crowdfunding campaign like a Kickstarter or equity crowdfunding offering on Wefunder (2) but instead of a gadget or security, the ICO investing public receives tokens of a new cryptocurrency issued by the cryptocurrency startup that can be bought or sold.
Nice article, and I today I was about to buy a similar setup. But I’m struggling to convince myself to spend 3000USD on GPU-miners. Difficulty of all GPU-minable alt coins has exploded and still grows exponentially. Low coin values also doesn’t help, but the rapid increase of difficulty makes mining seem pretty stupid: you hardly get any coins from mining.
This is a nice guide, but I have never seen the zcash miner work properly with any software combination on a CPU. We briefly tried this with a non-GPU system, Windows based and we were missing one of the dependencies, just a simple fix, but we will check on that more later.
One common mistake that many investors make is assuming that a given investment is either “safe” or “risky.” But the myriad of investment offerings available today often cannot be classified so simply.

The DAO stands for Decentralized Autonomous Organization and it was a smart contract system built on Ethereum meant to function as a community managed venture fund. The DAO was the most successful crowdfunding project ever held as it gathered roughly $150 millions in a 28 day period.
AirDrop creates a peer-to-peer network between devices using built-in Bluetooth and WiFi. Bluetooth is used to discover nearby devices and negotiate the connection. This allows AirDrop to benefit from the low power consumption of Bluetooth, but does limit its range to approximately 30 feet. The actual file transfer process is handed off to WiFi, enabling AirDrop to exceed the speeds of competing, Bluetooth-only peer-to-peer network protocols. For security, each device creates a firewall and files are encrypted in transit. This makes AirDrop a much more secure option than email or SMS (non-iMessage text messages).
If you are running a compatible Mac and/or iOS device(s) and have AirDrop enabled on both the host and destination device, AirDrop is very easy to use. We’ve put together complete instructions on how to use the technology on the Mac and iOS platforms below, but there are a few things you need to check first:
In Hong Kong, cryptocurrencies are considered virtual commodities. There are no laws that directly regulate the use of cryptocurrencies in the city, although the Organised and Serious Crimes Ordinance and other legislation provide legal sanctions against unlawful acts such as fraud or money laundering through the use of cryptocurrencies.

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:
“Every VC firm is going to have to take a long hard look at the value they bring to the table and how they remain competitive,” said Brian Lio, the head of Smith & Crown, a cryptocurrency research firm. “What do they have other than prestige? What are they offering to these companies that are more advantageous than going to the community?”
For perspective, I run several of the Gigabyte “ITX” one-fan GTX 1070 model cards on Folding@Home – which pushes a card quite a bit harder than ZCash mining does – and they stay plenty cool as long as the ambient temperature doesn’t get very high.
An initial coin offering (ICO) is a controversial means of crowdfunding centered around cryptocurrency, which can be a source of capital for startup companies. In an ICO, a quantity of the crowdfunded cryptocurrency is preallocated to investors in the form of “tokens”, in exchange for legal tender or other cryptocurrencies such as bitcoin or ethereum. These tokens supposedly become functional units of currency if or when the ICO’s funding goal is met and the project launches.
Peer-to-peer lending. This social lending platform allows the average Joe or Jane to lend money to those in need, kind of like a bank. The borrowers might want business capital, funds to consolidate credit card debt or money to pay for a remodel. The allure to the lender is that he or she can garner 7 to 10 percent returns on their cash.
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.
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.
