We are currently using Equihash as the proof-of-work for block mining in Zcash. Equihash is a proof-of-work algorithm devised by Alex Biryukov and Dmitry Khovratovich. It is based on a computer science and cryptography concept called the Generalized Birthday Problem. Please read the Why Equihash blog post for more details.
Like preferred stock, utility stocks tend to remain relatively stable in price, and pay dividends of about 2% to 3% above treasury securities. The other major characteristics of utility stocks include:
If looking for a risk-free way to earn some interest on your money, a high yield savings account might be your answer. With these accounts, you’ll earn a nominal amount of interest just for keeping your money on deposit. Other than opening your account and depositing your money, this strategy requires almost no effort on your part, either.
This situation happens because everyone who uses the blockchain stores a single copy of the entire ledger on their computer. As everyone has a copy of the blockchain, no single institution or entity can claim the blockchain as theirs which eliminates monopolies altogether.

AirDrop, Apple’s built-in sharing feature, lets you beam pretty much anything between any Apple devices. You can use it to share photos, videos, URLS, documents, snippets of text — in short, anything that can be shared using the standard “sharing arrow” icon is fair game for AirDrop.
Note: If you choose Contacts Only, make sure you’re logged into iCloud. Apple won’t share your contacts with another device to determine if there’s a match; it’ll check both your iCloud accounts instead. Then, if there is a match, it’ll show you your own version of the contact on your own device. That way, no data gets leaked.
They are noncyclical stocks, which means that their prices do not rise and fall with economic expansion and contraction like some sectors, such as technology or entertainment. Because people and businesses always need gas, water, and electricity regardless of economic conditions, utilities are one of the most defensive sectors in the economy.
The main focus of Zcash is the payment confidentiality feature and that is precisely why it has recieved a lot of attention, we are going to see how this plays out when it becomes available and even if it offers anoimity, there should still be more to it to continue to be successful after the initial hype at launch… 😉
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!
Hi Jim – I’m sympathetic with your thoughts, but there’s no perfect investment out there. We tried to address the portion of a portfolio that will be held in relatively safe investments, which every portfolio should have. We never said that any of these investment options are a cure-all. As to Fisher Investments, I’ve done some research on them and they aren’t a perfect solution either. You have to achieve balance, and invest where your comfortable.
