While the IANA-registered MIME type for ICO files is image/vnd.microsoft.icon, it was submitted to IANA in 2003 by a third party and is not recognised by Microsoft software, which uses image/x-icon instead. Erroneous types image/ico, image/icon, text/ico and application/ico have also been seen in use.
If you are getting a form of guaranteed return, your risk is a lot lower. Unlike the backing of the Federal government, your annuity is backed by the insurance company that holds it (and perhaps another company that further insurers the annuity company). Nonetheless, your money is typically going to be very safe in these complicated products.
Completing a risk tolerance test can give you an idea of what the appropriate mix might be for you, although you can always decide to invest more aggressively or conservatively. For example, if your nest egg is so large there’s little chance you’ll run through it so you’re effectively also investing for your heirs, you could decide to favor stocks a bit more.
As we are building 13 GPU we are going to order 13 GPU’s. If you are low on budget you can always order less and increase as you go. So, be sure to use the same components that I’m going to mention below.
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!
The Etherum project was born in 2015, and while for some it may have seemed like just another drop in the ocean of cryptocurrencies, it was clearly a lot more than that. For starters, unlike the vast majority of other cryptocurrencies out there, Etherum was not only about the cryptocurrency itself, but rather had its main focus on smart contracts – a feature that allowed the use of the blockchain technology in other fields as well, not just in the financial segment. You can read more about smart contracts here.
Since some third-party wallets only support transparent addresses, we’re seeing an effect on the number of shielded addresses in use. While the ratio has been steadily improving since launch, we expect the number to increase even faster over the future as we continue to improve usability of shielded addresses.
Using public key cryptography, it is possible to prove possession of a private key without revealing that key. The authentication server encrypts a challenge (typically a random number, or at least data with some random parts) with a public key; the device proves it possesses a copy of the matching private key by providing the decrypted challenge.
Fortunately, AirDrop hasn’t completely gone away and can still be accessed relatively quickly. It’s just a hidden in iOS 11’s fully revamped Control Center. With a little practice, you’ll be able to get into your AirDrop’s settings (almost) as fast as you did in previous iOS versions.
i think the most people use the gtx 1070 for zcash mining. some people us the 1060 6gb cause they drain less power, so the sol/watt is better than the sol/watt of the 1070. but the 1070 perform better and have the higher resell value. here you have a calculator to see the difference:
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.
Pro tip: check out the following GPUs: Nvidia’s GTX 1060-6GB/1070/1080 Series; AMD’s RX 470/480, RX 570/580, R9 Series, or HD 7990/7950 (if used cards are available, try to get them from a gamer instead of a miner, with a warranty if possible). As with everything, do your own due diligence to evaluate GPUs based on their hashrates, power requirements, availability, and price.
Note that a big part of the shielded addresses used are due to the consensus rule requirement of coinbases to be shielded when first spent. This was in order to provide a guaranteed privacy-set. If you make a shielded Zcash transaction today there is actually a very large privacy-set of possible previous transactions which could be inputs to your transaction.
One of the unique aspects about the DAO Initial Coin Offering was the risk-free investment option, in which a user could always recover the Ether sent on a 1-100 scale, by splitting these DAO tokens, regardless of their market price.
You can buy ZEC from participating online exchanges/markets with another cryptocurrency or fiat currency (depending on which exchange you use). We put together a list of exchanges supporting Zcash trades at launch here but these are just a few of the first exchanges and wallets that supported Zcash at launch. There have been many more that have come into existence. We encourage the community to host their own lists and repositories of successful providers such as in this Zcash community blog. You might also have luck finding someone to buy Zcash from in-person or offering services/products to be paid for in Zcash. And of course, you are highly encouraged to run a Zcash mining node to earn tokens for taking part in securing the decentralized network!
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!
If the user you’re sharing with taps Accept, you’ll see a blue line move around the outside of their icon indicating the progress of the transfer. When the transfer is complete, Sent will appear under their icon.
For the purpose of this guide, we’re going to do a detailed walk-through of setting up and using the very popular Nvidia EWBF Miner. If you have AMD cards, mining Ethereum is usually your most profitable option.
AirDrop uses Bluetooth low energy (LE) to broadcast and negotiate connections, and point-to-point WiFi to actually transfer the data. Each of the two devices creates a firewall, and the files are transferred encrypted. This makes the service fast, secure, and power-efficient. It is also a safer way to send data than the standard email, for example.
What makes municipal bonds so safe? Not only do you avoid income tax (which means a higher return compared to an equally risky investment that is taxed), but the likelihood of the borrower defaulting is very low. There have been some enormous municipality bankruptcies in recent years, but this is very rare. Governments can always raise taxes or issue new debt to pay off old debt, which makes holding a municipal bond a pretty safe bet.

Hey Charlie, OK, I expect you’re checking that out on the South African Bitmart.co.za site which sells miners and other crypto gear? It’s their name for 6x 1080 GPUs in a re-assembled rig… So sure, it’ll be good for mining zCash, as that’s its intended purpose after all and the 1080 GPU is a good miner. That said, electricity in SA has become pretty expensive and Bitmart’s prices are fairly steep. Their setup goes for R88k but I see that a single GT 1080 (basic model, not the Ti) goes for about R10k on Evetech: https://www.evetech.co.za/PC-Components/buy-nvidia-geforce-gtx-graphics-cards-47.aspx You should check which… Read more »
Many of the built-in apps that come with the iOS support it, including Photos, Notes, Safari, Contacts, and Maps. As a result, you can share things like photos and videos, URLs, address book entries, and text files. Some third-party apps also support AirDrop to let you share their content (it’s up to each developer to include AirDrop support in their apps).
Zcash Proof of Work algorithm is Equihash. Based on generalized birthday problem, it is a memory hard algorithm. This algorithm is resistant to mining hardware like ASIC graphic cards. Depending on the network, the Zcash POW algorithm keeps on changing.
I am truly astounded to see cash value insurance on here. There couldn’t be a bigger rip-off. You fail to mention that you’ll pay a hefty interest rate on anything you borrow. You also fail to mention that cash value is lost upon payment of death benefit or visa versa. If life insurance is needed it’s ALWAYS better to pay the lower premiums of term and chose almost any of these other options.
A: Most pools support variable diff, they change “target share” after some time after connection. For example, you have very powerful rig, after connection you will send shares very often. It takes some CPU time to check your shares so after some time pool will send higher share target and miner will send less shares (but they will have more value). When pool updates share target you will see “Pool sets new share target” line in the miner. This way pool can adjust the number of shares that miner sends and balance its load.
A related application is the hardware dongle required by some computer programs to prove ownership of the software. The dongle is placed in an input device and the software accesses the I/O device in question to authorize the use of the software in question.
