Anyway, to make a long story short, Nvidia GTX 1060, 1070, and 1080 GPU’s are good for mining ZEC and ZEN, and since I believe both project have good long-term prospects, I figured I needed to be making some Nvidia based GPU miners. This is a list of what to buy and how to set it up to get you mining quickly.
Average annual total returns illustrate the annual compounded returns that would have produced the cumulative total return if the fund’s performance had remained constant throughout the period indicated. Returns for periods less than one year are not annualized.
Learn more about how I did with P2P lending in my review of LendingClub or Prosper or get started with peer-to-peer lending with companies like Lending Club and Prosper. Depending on your appetite for risk and how much capital you have to invest, you could score some decent returns without the stress that comes with high risk investments.
All five equihash coins are fairly similar in profitability. HUSH, ZEC, KMD, ZCL, and ZEN are all similarly profitable on the calculator, so any would be a good candidate to mine and immediately sell. Nicehash is an interesting option also – if you point your GPU miner at it you will get paid in Bitcoin. For mining and holding, you should do your research and determine which ones you think have the longest term potential to increase in usefulness, value, and price.
Last but not least, there’s overclocking – the ace in your sleeve that can get you a free performance boost. Overclocking for mining is slightly different than regular overclocking, as usage conditions differ as well. In normal usage conditions (gaming, normal use), a video card rarely reaches full load, so a more aggressive overclocking might be sustainable for shorter periods of time. Mining keeps the cards running at full power all the time, though, so excessive overclocking might make it unstable.
Hi, I live in Nigeria but I would like to invest in lending club,did open the site and I wanted to register but there was some constraints like having to chose my state which i didn’t fall into an option there how would I go abt it thank you…your doing a great job here
A CPU core can execute 4 32-bit instructions per clock (using a 128-bit SSE instruction) or 8 via AVX (256-Bit), whereas a GPU like the Radeon HD 5970 can execute 3200 32-bit instructions per clock (using its 3200 ALUs or shaders). This is a difference of 800 (or 400 in case of AVX) times more instructions per clock. As of 2011, the fastest CPUs have up to 6, 8, or 12 cores and a somewhat higher frequency clock (2000-3000 MHz vs. 725 MHz for the Radeon HD 5970), but one HD5970 is still more than five times faster than four 12-core CPUs at 2.3GHz (which would also set you back about $4700 rather than $350 for the HD5970).
We’ve changed the block interval target from 10 minutes to 2.5 minutes, and modified other constants in order to preserve the monetary base of roughly 21 million coins and halving interval of 4 years.
What I really like about EthosDistro is how it has settings for adjusting power, fans, core clock speed, and memory clock speed. This allows for overclocking and power limiting of the GPU’s. You can also set up a single configuration file on a webserver, and by changing one file on your miner, have it go to that configuration file on boot, pull its config, and start mining. It even checks the file every few minutes while running, so it’s possible to reboot the miner to have it accept new settings.
The catch with these popular platforms, such as Lending Club and Prosper, is that they are relatively new. Their returns haven’t been tested during times of higher interest rates. Thus, you don’t know if there will be higher borrower defaults or other scenarios that may occur as interest rates go up. If defaults increase substantially, investors’ returns will drop.
AirDrop can be a be a quick, simple way to transfer files between iOS devices. It can be especially handy because it is truly a device-to-device transfer that works even when neither device has internet access, although Wi-Fi and Bluetooth have to be turned on for it to function. In this article I will discuss how to turn on AirDrop and use it to share files between devices.
We’ve mentioned earlier that ETH is used as an incentive for miners to verify your transaction. It is also used as gas to power your transactions in the network; think of it as “fuel” for your ETH transaction.
The GTX 1080 Ti takes 2 PCIE connectors per GPU, so you need 12 total for a 6 GPU rig. We have an EVGA 1600 watt PSU that just arrived today which I will be using for a new 6x GTX 1080 Ti rig once all the parts are here. —- You can go with a 2 PSU set up also, ideally with 1 server PSU and an ATX PSU, probably the ideal setup. If you will have your rig mining in a living space though I personally can’t stand the higher pitched noise of the server psu fans…. so for us (in a living space specifically) it was a no go this time around.
Instead of buying shares in a company (and its future profits) you are lending your money to someone else with the hope they will pay you back. If you screen your loans poorly, peer to peer lending can be extremely risky. However, screening properly and choosing only the best rated loans is a great way to secure a decent return with little risk on your part.

I have a Trojan.GenericKD.5331716 in any download for the nheqminer for windows. Does not matter what source I go to. Best be aware. If someone has a source that does not contain it, would be happy to receive.
As I wait for a real video card to test Ethos out on, after 4 years and with a puff of smoke I have the old system running. The ASUS 5850 just doesn’t cut it, but Ethos is running on a 32GB USB drive and very stable right now.
While there have been plenty of success stories, in the 2nd quarter of last year, an Ethereum based project named The DAO entered an ICO to launch an investment fund without a fund manager, with the investors being involved in all of the investment decisions upon launch. The ICO raised almost US$150m, almost 70% of 2016’s total capital raised through ICOs. By mid-2016, hackers managed to get away with more than US$40m from the DAO, bringing the project to a grinding halt and the value of Ether down with it, Ether’s price falling from US$19 to under $12 in just a matter of days. In the interest of market capitalizations and protecting the investors, Ethereum created a new blockchain and ultimately reversed the theft, leaving the original Ethereum blockchain, now known as Ethereum Classic behind, a small minority continuing to support and assign value to the old blockchain.
AirDrop is an ad-hoc service in Apple Inc.’s macOS and iOS operating systems, introduced in Mac OS X Lion (Mac OS X 10.7) and iOS 7, which enables the transfer of files among supported Macintosh computers and iOS devices over Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, without using mail or a mass storage device.
One of the earliest documented uses of ICOs for a cryptocurrency project was Mastercoin, which was crowdfunded on Bitcointalk forums. Mastercoin is a meta-protocol on top of the Bitcoin blockchain that provides additional features that the base Bitcoin layer doesn’t. The ICO took place during mid-2013. Mastercoin (MSC) raised over 5000 Bitcoin (BTC) at the rate of 100 MSC per BTC sent to an “exodus address” during the ICO phase.
Zcash is a fork of the bitcoin protocol, the first and most widely used blockchain cryptocurrency. This means it maintains its own blockchain and currency token. Zcash builds on the existing work from the Bitcoin core team to enable privacy preserving transaction data using zero-knowledge proofs (see FAQ: what is a zero-knowledge proof?). It also includes some non-privacy changes to bitcoin, including its proof of work algorithm (see FAQ: “What are you changing from Bitcoin’s Design? What parts of the Bitcoin network remain?” for more detail on technical differences).
Preferred stocks generally aren’t as iron-clad as bonds, which are in effect contracts that require interest payments as well as the outright return of capital once the bond matures. Simply put, preferred stocks don’t guarantee a dividend.
It’s ultimately the process of crowdfunding a new cryptocurrency project, involving a token sale, with the cryptocurrency project capital to fund operations, with investors receiving an allocation of the project’s tokens in return.
We are a science-driven team. We are the discoverers of the underlying scientific techniques and the designers of the technology but we are not the ultimate controllers of the network — that power lies in the hands of the users. We believe in decentralization, which promotes security and fairness. Every user of Zcash is a part of the network, and helps protect it against failure and corruption.
Cryptocurrency mining is one of the hottest topics around at this time, and it’s easy to see why: with the prices of all the important cryptocurrencies going up and reaching all-time highs, it is now more profitable than ever to get into the mining business and start earning. Getting started with cryptocurrency mining is not as easy as it sounds, though, as you will need a bit of technical know-how in order to pick the right components and get mining. Luckily, we’re here to help – we have put together an introductory guide to the world of cryptocurrencies, along with a selection of some of the best GPUs for cryptocurrency mining. You are welcome!
As stated above, one of AirDrop’s main areas of appeal is its inherent security. Because it relies on Bluetooth to discover and negotiate connections, its range is limited and the connections are protected by both firewalls and encryption, making AirDrop one the safest ways to transfer files between Apple devices.
AirDrop ONLY works iOS device to device for example iPhone to iPad or iMac to iBook. You cannot AirDrop from your iPhone to your iMac. Apple needs to work on this (this is a big disadvantage)…. AirDrop should be available to the entire Apple eco system regardless of whether running iOS or Mavericks!
Junk bond funds. Fixed-income investments may be classified as investment-grade or junk. Investment-grade bonds have a lower default risk and yield than non-investment-grade or junk bonds. Investors who choose to reach for yield and invest in junk bond funds need to understand the risks.
After the widespread coverage of Ethereum on the Internet and publications, hordes of new investors rushed to exchanges to get their hands on ETH. This led to increased amounts of ETH buy orders on exchanges which led to higher prices.
Since the Mastercoin’s ICO, it was estimated that ICOs raised a lowly US$25m in 2014, falling to US$10m in 2015 following Bitcoin’s price collapse of 2014. In 2016, the trend reversed, with ICOs raising an estimated US$225m, supported by a rally in the price of Bitcoin, which drove interest into both blockchains and Fintech.
The principal and interest in fixed contracts is backed by both the financial strength of the life insurance companies that issue them, as well as by state guaranty funds that reimburse investors who purchased an annuity contract from an insolvent carrier. Although there have been instances of investors who lost money in fixed annuities because the issuing company went bankrupt, the odds of this happening today are extremely low, especially if the contract is purchased from a financially sound carrier.
