By default, miner will accept connections on specified port on all network adapters, but you can select desired network interface directly, for example, “-mport 127.0.0.1:3333” opens port on localhost only.
In Zcash, we use a particular type of zero-knowledge proof called zk-SNARKs (or “zero-knowledge succinct non-interactive arguments of knowledge”). Within a Zcash transaction, there may exist a string of data that the sender of a transaction provides –the “zero-knowledge proof”– along with the encrypted transaction data which proves properties of the encrypted data cryptographically, including that the sender couldn’t have generated that string unless they had ownership over the spending key and unless the input and output values are equal. The proof also guarantees creation of a unique nullifier which is used to mark tokens as spent, when they are, in fact spent. This allows for verification that the transaction is valid, while preserving privacy of the transaction details.
Next, you will have to ensure you have the correct virtual memory enabled (minimum 16GB). To do this, search for system in the start menu. Open system and on the left hand side click ‘Advanced System Settings.’ Go under the advanced tab, under performance settings, and advanced again. Then click ‘Change’ under virtual memory. Uncheck the box that states to ‘Automatically manage paging file size for all drives’ and then input a custom size of 16384 (or whatever is the maximum allowable value up to 16GB) into the Initial and Maximum size fields. This will prevent you from having any errors with virtual memory.
As solving these mathematical puzzles had become difficult, mining pools are being used. A mining pool is a joint effort between miners, so that even a miner with a relatively small amount of processing power can enjoy the reward, without having to solve the whole mathematical puzzle by himself, as it requires a lot of computing power (Hash rate). In the early days of Bitcoin, it was possible to mine Bitcoin with a standard processor of a personal computer (CPU mining). Afterwards, as the network grew bigger, the difficulty of solving these puzzles grew too, and it was no longer possible to mine using a CPU. For this reason, people shifted to using powerful “gamers” graphics card processes (GPU mining), as their design solves those puzzles much faster than a CPU. The next step was to shift over to ASICs (Application Specific Integrated Circuits which are basically dedicated machines built for the sole purpose of mining). Today, Bitcoin’s network is so heavy, that nobody can mine Bitcoin by themselves. As an individual miner’s power is relatively small, he will probably not be able to solve any puzzle before other more powerful miners do and new puzzles are issued, resulting in wasted work which practically gives zero income (in theory, an individual can solve a puzzle by themselves, but with Bitcoin the chances of success are smaller than winning the lottery).

It’s very important to understand that during the initial phase new coins don’t exist yet, people are buying IOU (“i owe you”) – not the coins themselves, but the obligations. As soon as fundraising phase is over, IOUs are being transformed into usual tokens.
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 !

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.
Ethereum is (as of February 2018) the leading blockchain platform for ICOs with more than 80% market share. Tokens are generally based on the Ethereum ERC20 standard. According to Cointelegraph the Ethereum network ICOs have resulted in considerable phishing, Ponzi schemes, and other scams, accounting for about 10% of ICOs.
Yes. Zcash is based on the peer-reviewed Zerocash protocol, which was published in the IEEE Security & Privacy conference in 2014. The Zerocash paper provides a detailed technical overview of the specification. Our changes to the protocol are not (yet) peer-reviewed, but they are described and justified comprehensively in our protocol specification. Those changes are also in the process of being subjected to several independent security audits.
Fantastic post. Thank you for this. Here is heading a local.conf that works for ZenCash with global rules. This is for people who don’t feel comfortable setting each GPU individually. I plugged all GPUs in at once and it worked right away. Of course replace with your own wallet address.
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.
It would appear that on planet crypto, ICOs are currently the flavor of the month, perhaps also of the season. With each passing day, a new ICO is announced and they have now become ubiquitous across all forms of media. Coinidol writers, for example, receive information on at least one new ICO every day. With so much variety to choose from, any investor would be right to ask how to go about picking a viable ICO, and avoid falling into the hands of the scammers who litter the crypto landscape. So how does one know which ICO to invest in? Before we can answer that question, we would benefit by understanding what ICOs are.
Airdrop on iPhone is one of the easiest ways to quickly share files, photos, and more between devices. You can Airdrop photos from your iPad to your friend’s iPhone or Airdrop photos from your iPhone to your Mac computer for an easy transfer. You can also Airdrop from iPhone to iPhone. As long as you have relatively recent devices running on an updated operating system, you’re probably already setup to use Airdrop. We’ll cover what Airdrop is below, as well as how to turn Airdrop on, how it works, and how to use Airdrop whether you’re on iPhone, iPad, or Mac. Once you know how to use Airdrop, you’ll never go back.
If there were any doubts of Ripple, 10 financial institutions signing up to send real time payments internationally was certainly a plus for the creators and angel investors, with banks including Bank of America and Royal Bank of Canada signing on.
Major exchanges like Gemini and Coinbase are strictly regulated which means that the security and safety of their wallets are top-notch. However, platforms are also vulnerable to hacks or bankruptcy which may lead to closures.
High yield bonds are issued by companies whose financial strength is not rock solid. Often referred to as “junk bonds,” they must pay a higher yield than other safer alternatives in order to attract investors.
Let’s get straight to the point: SHYG is a junk bond fund. It’s not a fund that collects outright garbage though. It’s designed to hold debt of companies with potential and a viable business model, and it sticks to bonds that are at the upper tiers of “junk” status. As an example, bonds issued by Ally Financial Inc (NYSE:ALLY) and Tenet Healthcare Corp (NYSE:THC) are among its bigger positions … companies that may not be on rock-solid footing, but aren’t fighting for their lives either. The end result is a fund that currently yields about 5.5%.
This means that the only way to get your misplaced tokens back is if the recipient himself sends it back to you. However, due to the pseudonymous nature of the blockchain, the chances of that happening is virtually zero.
So someone who has a monopoly on mining equipment can own the supply? You cannot debate that this is a fairer distribution method than ICO distribution because you know the same problems happen in each one.
In at least one case, a user with AirDrop set to receive from “Everyone” was sent unwanted sexually explicit images from a nearby stranger. On August 13, 2017, the New York Post reported that at least two women were sent nude pictures while commuting.
@blockops I followed your guide all the way, along with some supplemental videos on youtube, and now that I’m putting together the final pieces, I have realized the PSU you recommended only has 6 VGA (8 pin) connectors. This is a problem because one of those connections is needed for the CPU, meaning I only get 5 VGA (8 pin) connections for my 6 GPUs. How did you make this rig work?

Liquidity Risk: The risk that an investment will not be available for liquidation when it is needed (applies to fixed-income investments and real estate and other property that may not be able to be quickly sold at an equitable price)
At the end of the day, dividend stocks are stocks, and thus subject to the ups and downs of the stock market, witness the fact that many dividend payers saw their share price decline anywhere from 20% to upwards of 60% during the financial crisis.
And I don’t mean to say ICOs aren’t tough. They are. You need to prove your credibility to the world that you can deliver on what you are saying in your White Paper. About White paper, It’s like your Pitch deck in form of a web page putting out your details like your daily active users,revenue, user acquisition strategy, what do you intend to do with the money etc. in front of everyone who is interested in participating in your ICO.
This year has been a pretty good one for most bank stocks, with one odd exception … New York Community Bancorp, Inc. (NYSE:NYCB). NYCB shares have fallen 26% since the end of last year, mostly in response to the now-botched (and expensive) deal to acquire Astoria Financial. A closer look at New York Community Bancorp, however, reveals this company is still effective, efficient, and most of all, still plenty profitable.
