Hey Charlie, Well, you should multiply the hashrate and electricity consumption and price tag of each GPU by 6, seeing as the Zodiac contains 6 GPUs. When you identify which exact card the Zodiac is using, you’ll be able to search those details but you’ll still need to account for there being 6 GPUs in the complete unit, so 6 times as much hashrate, cost and power consumption. That’s how you’ll know how soon the unit will pay for itself (at least with the current price and difficulty parameters). $180k per year sounds way too good… Note that I’m assuming… Read more »
Troubleshooting tip: Some miners have had success installing all GPUs at once, then installing the drivers. Others prefer to install only one card, install the drivers, shut down the system, and then install the rest of the GPUs.
Recurring costs are fixed costs such as rent or internet. This value, along with power costs are subtracted from your revenue to give profit. Higher recurring costs mean lower profits and a longer break-even time.
The lack of transparency remains an issue and there have also been reports that the sale of tokens to U.S citizens is in fact deemed illegal, though whether exemptions will be permitted remains to be seen, uncertainty certainly there for investors consider down the road.
For the investor, it’s a case of exploring the various exchanges or social media sites that publish active and up and coming ICOs and then opening an account, acquiring the tokens, having completed the necessary due diligence on the company or project in question.
W/GH is the metric used to display a miner’s efficiency. The Antminer S7 is also the most efficient miner available on the market, with 0.25 W/GH. Consider that the previous version of the S7, the S5, had an efficiency of just 0.51 W/GH. That means the S5 uses twice as much electricity per hash as the S7.
Could someone help me out here. I’ve got a R280X that should run around 290 h/s on equihash. I runs great guns on Cryptonite 485 h/s but when I start Claymore Zen64 miner it starts out at 275 h/s and then starts to throttle back to 150 h/s. It drops my clock speed in half and I have no control over setting thru MSI afterburner. It mines along but at half the speed 500mhz.
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.
Cryptocurrencies are based on distributed ledger technologies which enable anyone to purchase or transfer their cryptocurrency holdings to any other person without the need for an intermediary (such as an exchange) or to update a central record of ownership. Cryptocurrencies can be transferred easily across national and jurisdictional boundaries. This makes it difficult for central authorities to control and monitor the ownership and movement of holdings of cryptocurrencies.
Miner cannot just stop if cheat is detected because creators of cheats would know that the cheat does not work and they would find new tricks. If miner does not show any errors or slowdowns, they are happy.
So, should you do it? That’s entirely up to you! Since GPU mining relies on GPU power, an investment in high end GPUs such as the GTX 1070 or 1080Tis is likely to pay off either through mining profit or via resell value, if things go south. Investing in lower end hardware might seem like a less-risky move from a financial standpoint, as it will imply a lower initial investment, but the return of investment rate and chances are significantly lower.
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.

You should also ask yourself if you really think that your business will actively benefit from an ICO. Basically, after reading this article, you should consult someone who can take a look at your specific idea and tell you if its a slam dunk or not. If it’s not, you might be better off going through safer avenues of funding.
September 9/17 VoskCoin Monthly Mining Update – I’m proud to announce that I have reached the 35k club or 35000 hashes / sols on equihash. Popular coins on equihash are Zcash/ZEC ZenCash/ZEN Komodo/KMD Zclassic/ZCL and Hush/HUSH – My trio 3x GPU mining rigs are putting out 1.6k-1.8k sols on flypool, nanopool, slushpool, suprnova, and luckpool. In addition to my equihash gpu mining farm I have sold my baikalminer cubes, pandaminer, and bitmain antminer l3+. I have a bitmain antminer d3 on the way with projected September delivery.
The first token sale (also known as an ICO) was held by Mastercoin in July 2013. Ethereum raised money with a token sale in 2014, raising 3,700 BTC in its first 12 hours, equal to approximately $2.3 million at the time. An ICO was held by Karmacoin in April 2014 for its Karmashares project.
I think nowadays altcoin mining become faded. Since mining is not a good solution for scaling up the altcoin. The altcoin is going to change from POW to POs. And there are more and more ICO with fixed amount of tokens. So the future of mining is not so optimistic…
Pro tip: check out the following GPUs: Nvidia’s GTX 1060-6GB/1070/1080 Series; AMD’s RX 470/480, RX 570/580, R9 Series, or HD 7990/7950 (if used cards are available, try to get them from a gamer instead of a miner, with a warranty if possible). As with everything, do your own due diligence to evaluate GPUs based on their hashrates, power requirements, availability, and price.
A cryptocurrency is a medium of exchange like normal currencies such as USD, but designed for the purpose of exchanging digital information through a process made possible by certain principles of cryptography. Cryptography is used to secure the transactions and to control the creation of new coins. The first cryptocurrency to be created was Bitcoin back in 2009. Today there are hundreds of other cryptocurrencies, often referred to as Altcoins.

Many of the built-in apps that come with the iOS support it, including Photos, Notes, Safari, Contacts, and Maps. As a result, you can share things like photos and videos, URLs, address book entries, and text files. Some third-party apps also support AirDrop to let you share their content (it’s up to each developer to include AirDrop support in their apps).
