Shielded addresses (addresses that start with a “z”) are the component of Zcash which offer privacy by encrypting sender, receiver, balance and a memo field. The introduction of our encryption scheme introduced some limitations on usability which those familiar with other cryptocurrencies may notice. One limitation in the current version the Zcash client includes a restriction on spending inputs: for any transaction involving one or more shielded address, there can be only one input (however, outputs are not restricted). Additionally, shielded addresses have higher resource requirements (RAM) and no multi-signature support. Overtime, we intend to improve on these limitations and will explain any upgrades in our release announcement updates.
Analyzing examples of relevant ICOs, one can piece together what are the main characteristics or factors for a successful ICO, both in fund gathering and in post-ICO valuation. Websites like Top ICO List aggregate and analyze all the upcoming ICOs.
My command line used for Flypool. You will need to edit this to put in your account and machine name. Use this without the quotes. “miner –server us1-zcash.flypool.org –port 3333 –user t1WsPCRzUwF8ynhy7o78CBhe5kBPqM4dWmq.MachineName –pass x”
If it can’t be disabled in the quit menu settings when you swipe up on home screen. you have to go thru settings>general>restrictions. Here you have to turn the airdrop setting on and then you can go back to the swipe up menu on your home screen to turn it off. Weird and f*$%ing annoying.
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.
During the ICO, the project backers and investors buy the distributed crypto coins with fiat money (dollars, euros, etc…) or crypto currency (Bitcoin, Ethereum) for a stake in the ICO. These coins are referred to as “tokens” and are similar to shares of a company sold to investors in an Initial Public Offering (IPO) transaction. A distinguishing factor between these tokens and IPO shares is that the “tokens” do not entail ownership of the company and any voting rights (discussed in more details below)
If you watch my latest youtube video, CryptoCurrency Mining Strategies and What I am Mining Sept 2017 (below), you will see that I advocate mining with many different types of miners, and mining many different types of cryptocurrencies, all at the same time. For example, in the past few months I have mined BTC, DGB, BCH, ETC, EXP, ETH, UBQ, ZEN, ZEC, LTC, MUE, DASH, and others. I also run masternodes and stake different cryptocurrencies to participate in other crypto generating activities.
If you are mining where power is expensive (e.g. Northern California), then that will significantly hit profits. What this does not take account is that if you are doing this in a home or office where you also need to pay peak pricing and air conditioning costs, the profitability can be much lower. On the other hand, if you are in a data center then you can easily plan for power and cooling costs.
Another combination is with smart card to store locally larger amount of identity data and process information as well. Another is a contactless BLE token that combines secure storage and tokenized release of fingerprint credentials.
We were talking the other day about small miners (<150mh) jumping off the network due to increased difficulty and no or very little profitability. Seems Zcash may be the catalyst that got them moving. When you receive a file with AirDrop, one of several things can happen. First, you will be prompted to accept the incoming transfer. Unless, that is, you are sending a file to one of your own devices — from your iPhone to your iPad, for example. In this case, iOS automatically accepts the file. What happens next depends on the file type. Our GTX 1080 Ti that I am testing/tweaking right now does ~603 Sols @ ~154 watts for an approximate 3.92 h/w efficiency. Pretty darned good in my humble opinion. It really cuts down on the heat too, running at a mere 61C with the fan at 50% on a reference cooler (FE model). An aftermarket cooler will do even better. AirDrop is an Apple technology that uses Bluetooth and Wi-Fi wireless networking to let users share files directly between their iOS devices and Macs. Once it's enabled, you can use it to share content from any app that supports it. With a lack of formal structure, each ICO will likely have a different set of requirements, though ultimately it’s a simple process of sending tokens upon payment by cryptocurrency to the blockchain identified and listed on the ICO website, which will also provide the investor a step-by-step guide into the investment process. High-yield bond portfolios concentrate on lower-quality bonds, which are riskier than those of higher-quality companies. These portfolios generally offer higher yields than other types of portfolios, but they are also more vulnerable to economic and credit risk. These portfolios primarily invest in U.S. high-income debt securities where at least 65% or more of bond assets are not rated or are rated by a major agency such as Standard & Poor's or Moody's at the level of BB (considered speculative for taxable bonds) and below. @ Peter The more I dig into p2p lending the more I get excited about it. Especially considering the recent pull-back in the market. My Lending Club account has returned a consistent > 9% return since 2008. I’m also going to open an account with Prosper, too; just haven’t had the time.
Cash equivalents include certificates of deposit, Treasury bills, money market funds and similar investments. They typically earn lower returns than stock or bond investments but present very little risk to your principal. Cash equivalents may help you cushion your losses in the event of a downturn in the stock or bond markets. Keep in mind that money market funds, while considered safe and conservative, are not insured by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation the way certificates of deposit may be.
The Zcash company has official support for only Linux. While we have no intentions to officially support other operating systems, a third-party has already ported the client for MacOS and you can keep an eye on our community forum for future third-party Windows and mobile support. Since we do not have the resources to review software we do not build ourselves, we encourage users to do due diligence on the legitimacy and safety of software built by third-parties before downloading and installing.
