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.)
Somewhere in the smart contract’s code, there is a code that executes if the minimum funding target is not reached. This code is written in such a way so that the investors get back the money that they’ve put in the ICO.
The problem of hash rate instability has been well known for many years in the altcoin community. Multipool mining, where miners could quickly switch between mining coins with compatible Proof of Work algorithms, led to hash rate oscillation and instability. This rapidly switching hash power would often lead to unpredictable confirmation times, and long periods with very slow blocks. There were also more serious problems when coins had widely divergent market values, which could leave the smaller coin vulnerable to miners gaming of the difficulty algorithm, and manipulating timestamps.
The first two days and a couple of hours the block reward will barely reach 1 ZEC and with thousands of miners trying to get what little coins will be generated it will really be hard to mine much. There will be literally thousands of Hashes per second of hashrate from cloud mining contracts from Genesis Mining and miners that are leasing their hashrate though services such as NiceHash, not to mention everyone that will be moving their GPU mining rigs to try things out. Even CPU mining might still be a viable option for some, at least initially, though with the small initial block reward it is doubtful. So don’t worry that you might not be ready to mine Zcash yet, you will have some time while the block reward grows in the first days and the mined coins per day actually start making some sense.
Then, the cryptocurrency project NXT had its own ICO on Bitcointalk forums, raising 21 BTC (valued around $6000 then). NXT created a cryptocurrency coded from scratch (i.e. not a fork of the original Bitcoin code) and implemented the first fully proof-of-stake system. The project was quite successful for the ICO investors, reaching a peak of ‘market capitalization’ of over $100 million, and currently over $10 million. This made it one of the most successful ICOs for investors.
High yield bonds are subject to credit risk, which increases as the creditworthiness of the issuer falls. It’s important to pay attention to changes in credit quality, as less creditworthy bonds are more likely to default on interest payments or principal repayment.
A GPU is very different. Yes, a GPU can do math, and can also do “this” and “that” based on specific conditions. However, GPU’s have been designed so they are very good at doing video processing, and less executive work.
From my testing I found that no, AirDrop does not compress photos or videos. It doesn’t even change the name of the files. I really do remain impressed with AirDrop, exchanging files between Apple devices is so easy/fast and now knowing that it doesn’t compress data makes it so much more useful.
Switzerland Although Switzerland was previously viewed as a friendly jurisdiction to coin offerings, the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority announced an investigation of an unspecified number of coin offerings in September 2017, and would examine whether these offerings were in compliance with Swiss regulations.
I put AirDrop to the test by transferring a few different file types between my Mac and iPhone. These files include a PNG image, a JPEG image, a RAW image and a MOV video. I used the Unix command diff to test if the file had been altered in any way.
Take cloud storage, for example. Several companies are building blockchains to facilitate the peer-to-peer buying and selling of storage space, a model that could challenge conventional providers like Dropbox and Amazon. The tokens in this case are the method of payment for storage. A blockchain verifies the transactions between buyers and sellers and serves as a record of their legitimacy. How exactly this works depends on the project. In Filecoin, which broke records last month by raising more than $250 million via an ICO, miners would earn tokens by providing storage or retrieving stored data for users.
An ICO typically involves selling a new digital currency at a discount — or a “token” — as part of a way for a company to raise money. If that cryptocurrency succeeds and appreciates in value — often based on speculation, just as stocks do in the public market — the investor has made a profit.
To AirDrop content between Macs and iOS devices you must be running OS X 10.10 or later on Macs manufactured from 2012 or later. The iOS devices must be running iOS 8 or later and should be no more than five years old.
These fundraising ICOs are conducted online, and are usually announced on a cryptocurrency forum. Most projects have a white paper, a website, and active online forums as a way of building confidence.
Since ALU’s are what do all the work of Bitcoin mining, the number of available ALU’s has a direct effect on the hash output. Compare that to a 4-core CPU that can switch tasks on a dime, but has ALU’s in some small multiple of four, if not just four ALU’s alone. Trying a single SHA256 hash in the context of Bitcoin mining requires around 1,000 simple mathematical steps that must be performed entirely by ALU’s.
To conclude, use a Bitcoin mining calculator to input your hardware information and electricity costs. This will give you a much better idea on your overall potential to run a profitable mining farm. Remember, however, that some factors like the Bitcoin price and mining difficulty change everyday and can have dramatic effects on profitability.
When purchasing mining hardware, you will want to look at these metrics: Th/s and W/GH. Th/s, or sometimes Gh/s, measures a miner’s terahashes (Th/s) or gigahashes (Gh/s) per second and is called hash rate. A higher hash rate means a more powerful miner. You can use this simple calculator from Bitcoin Wisdom to determine how much money an amount of hash power will earn per month.
If you do not already own any crypto currency account I suggest an account at Coinbase. Here is a link to create an account: https://www.coinbase.com/join/59a565f… If you use this link to to create an account and you buy $100 of Bitcoin or more it will credit you an extra $10 in Bitcoin and I will also receive a $10 bonus.
AirDrop lets you choose between enabling it for just your contacts or for everyone. “Contacts” requires more work, as and the person you want to AirDrop with both have to be logged into iCloud and be in each other’s Contacts. “Everyone” is easier but means random people you don’t know can send you prank AirDrops.
Even though there are claims that AMD and NVIDIA were planning to enter the mining market for a while now, and Ether had nothing to do with it, it’s hard to believe it’s a coincidence that the announcement came after Ether mining exploded, shaking the global sales and availability of mining-adequate cards and driving their prices through the roof.
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.
Hong Kong The Securities and Futures Commission released a statement in September 2017 explaining that tokens may constitute securities for purposes of the Securities and Futures Ordinance, in which case dealing in such tokens would be a regulated activity under Hong Kong law.
Founders Reward: The Zcash team has implemented a Founders Reward for the developers who built Zcash, to support ongoing development and to start a non-profit organization in the form of ZEC issued back to the team. This means that for the first 4 years the Block Rewards will be issued as 80% to the Miners and 20% to the Zcash team. After the first 4 years 100% of the rewards will go to the miners. It should also be noted that Miners will always keep 100% of the transaction fees.
Now that you’ve got your white paper, you need to advertise. You have two targets that you’ll be trying to reach out to: those with knowledge of how cryptocurrency and ICOs work and people with basically no idea. You’ll want to identify the people that would be most excited by your new venture, since they’ll be more eager to give you money if it means a deal for them. In the case of BabyCoin (again, hypothetical) maybe we’d reach out to some popular mommy bloggers/vloggers and see if they would be interested in producing some content to showcase why BabyCoin is the biggest innovation in babysitting since The Babysitter’s Club. Just make sure they disclose the nature of the deal to advertise for you: The SEC released a warning to investors stating that it is illegal for celebrities to use social media to endorse ICOs without disclosing what compensation they received.
For perspective, the pros think Sunoco will grow from last year’s per-share loss of $5.26 to a profit of 86 cents per share this year, setting the stage for a move to a profit of $2.19 per share next year. Obviously the risk lies in the uncertainty of future oil prices, but with a payout like this one, it may be worth the risk.
The audio jack port is a relatively practical method to establish connection between mobile devices, such as iPhone, iPad and Android, and other accessories. The most well known device is called Square, a credit card reader for iPhone and Android.
More recently, Apple was awarded a patent for an NFC-based cross-platform data transfer system very similar to AirDrop. Instead of using Bluetooth to initiate the device handshake and authentication, the patent relied on near field communications. Like AirDrop, however, the end result is the creation of an ad-hoc wireless network over which files can be transferred.
Unlike connected tokens, contactless tokens form a logical connection to the client computer but do not require a physical connection. The absence of the need for physical contact makes them more convenient than both connected and disconnected tokens. As a result, contactless tokens are a popular choice for keyless entry systems and electronic payment solutions such as Mobil Speedpass, which uses RFID to transmit authentication info from a keychain token. However, there have been various security concerns raised about RFID tokens after researchers at Johns Hopkins University and RSA Laboratories discovered that RFID tags could be easily cracked and cloned.
For tuning the power, you can see the max power of each of the GPU’s is 200 Watts in the gethelp output. I found that setting the maximum power to 160 watts worked the best. After that, I worked to increase the memory speed as much as possible. In the the case of the ASUS Strix I was able to raise the memory speed from the default of 3802 to 4360. When operating, ethosdistro will turn the GPU processor speed down to keep the card within power limits. As you can see in the graphics above, this tuning produced about 460 H/s per GPU, for a total of 2745.
All of these calculations can change based on mining difficulty as well as Zcash price fluctuations. Here is a view of what 1 December 2016 to 20 May 2017 Zcash pricing looks like via Poloniex (one of the larger exchanges):

A blockchain is an incorruptible digital ledger of economic transactions that can be programmed to record, not just financial transactions, but anything of value. It’s essentially a digital spreadsheet that is duplicated across a network of computers. The network is designed to update the spreadsheets on a regular basis. As the information is shared and regularly updated and not stored in a single location, it’s considered to be truly public and easily reconciled.
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.
