Personal wallets, on the other hand, are wallets that are only available to you. They are not owned by a 3rd-party and cannot be accessed by anyone unless you give (or leak) your private keys to someone.
For example, some startups may decide to use their token as a way of distributing dividends among investors. However, startups usually offer their tokens with either one of these expectations for their investors:
For now it’s a phenomenon, but tomorrow it could be yet another cautionary tale, joining the dot.com and MBS (Mortgage backed security) stories of yesteryear. It will boil down to the integrity of the sector and the success of companies raising capital, mindful that not all will deliver, but at least a majority.
That will be the opportunity to really load up on high-yield investments with even more safety. Until then there aren’t many, but CEFs offer an extra degree of safety for investors looking for high yield right now.
The Zcash block chain launched on October 28, 2016, bringing into existence the first Zcash monetary units. This software release and the initial phase of the block chain is called ‘Sprout’ to emphasize that it is a young, budding block chain with great potential to grow.
The community also helps a lot in determining if smart contracts are safe. Usually, smart contracts are uploaded on the Github or the official website of ICOs. This allows developers to go through the contract to see if anything is out of the ordinary.
Nobody knows why buyers and sellers choose the prices they do. One fact to bear in mind is that the supply of Zcash immediately after launch was limited as described here. For example, on October 29 (one day after the blockchain was created) there were 450 coins and on October 31 there were 1950. One thing that we can be sure of is that it had nothing to do with the Founders’ Reward. The Founders’ Reward coins are distributed incrementally over the first four years of the blockchain, and none of them were moved until December 21, as we wrote about here and as you can see on the blockchain here.
How these upcoming ICOs will be received in India will be interesting, but the overall tone of cryptocurrencies in the country appears to be cautious. For instance, prominent economist S.P. Sharma is quoted in The Economic Times as pointing out that cryptocurrencies kind of hang in the balance as neither “illegal” nor “legal” form of payment. Indian regulators, meanwhile, similar to many around the world have warned investors about the cryptocurrencies to remain very careful while investing.
AirDrop is handy for sharing files between your devices, like your iPhone and iPad. If there are lots of other devices nearby named “iPhone” or “iPad,” just like yours, it’s time to change your iPhone’s name so you know those files are going to the right place. Luckily, that’s easy to do. Follow along to learn how.
Meanwhile Reserve Bank of India officials have recently said that they are uncomfortable with bitcoin or any virtual currency for that matter. Instead they are exploring the idea of a fiat cryptocurrency as another option to the India rupee.
Nvidia GPU’s are very easy to tune with EthosDistro. In the example configuration above, I included three tuning settings. How you set them depends on what you want to accomplish. I prefer a mix of maximum hash rate with moderate power usage. Others try to maximize the hash per watt.
Calling a spade a spade, AT&T Inc. (NYSE:T) isn’t without its challenges. Telecommunications have essentially become a commodity, as have cable television offerings. This nagging reality has made it tough for AT&T to grow.
An unregulated means by which funds are raised for a new cryptocurrency venture. An Initial Coin Offering (ICO) is used by startups to bypass the rigorous and regulated capital-raising process required by venture capitalists or banks. In an ICO campaign, a percentage of the cryptocurrency is sold to early backers of the project in exchange for legal tender or other cryptocurrencies, but usually for Bitcoin.
It’s also still more than capable of maintaining its quarterly dividend of 17 cents, translating into a yield of 5.8%. Investors just priced in the Astoria headlines while erroneously overlooking everything the company has been getting right. Their mistake is now an opportunity.
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.
On January 1st 2017, $1,000 would have gotten you 1.041 BTC (1 BTC was worth $960 on January 1st), 122.39 ETH (1 ETH was worth $8.17 on January 1st) and 20.622 ZEC (1 ZEC was worth $48.49 on January 1st).
The reward for such risk? Yields which are significantly higher than safer alternatives like treasury securities (which are backed by the U.S. government). Start your search for yield with the list below. Just don’t forget, although they may generate a significant amount of monthly (or quarterly) income, with high yield investments, expect your principal to fluctuate, sometimes drastically.
Bluetooth tokens are often combined with a USB token, thus working in both a connected and a disconnected state. Bluetooth authentication works when closer than 32 feet (10 meters). When the Bluetooth link is not properly operable, the token may be inserted into a USB input device to function.
One of the best aspects of the ubiquity of technology in our lives is the ability to share content with one another. We share our location to meet with friends, notes we’ve taken on our device, and photos from parties and family functions.
If you use zcashd directly and you have upgraded within three months of a network upgrade, there are no further actions to take. If you issued transactions near the time of the upgrade, you may need to resubmit them.
In early September, 2017, the People’s Bank of China officially banned ICOs, citing it as disruptive to economic and financial stability. The central bank said tokens cannot be used as currency on the market and banks cannot offer services relating to ICOs. As a result, both bitcoin and ethereum tumbled, and it was viewed as a sign that regulations of cryptocurrencies are coming. The ban also penalizes offerings already completed.
To use AirDrop with an iOS device, there are certain hardware specifications you’ll need to have in order for it to work properly. According to the Apple website, only the following mobile devices can properly use AirDrop:
You should disable AirDrop if you don’t use the wireless peer-to-peer file sharing feature often. Doing so will stop your phone from constantly searching for other iPhones or iPads nearby, and help you get more use out of your battery. Here’s how to disable AirDrop or enable it for Contacts only:
Unlike an initial public offering (IPO), acquisition of the tokens (in some cases shares or even derivate token assets/vehicles) is not government regulated. It’s an interesting conundrum since technically these projects are rarely rooted in one country or jurisdiction, with whole development and marketing teams stretching out across the globe. This truly is an exciting time the FinTech industry by large, a genuinely global market, where all that is needed is a new idea and able people to turn it into a reality. No tariffs or government intervention, middle men are kept to a minimum, and surplus managers rendered obsolete with automation.
Exchange-traded funds are the newest player on the block. These instruments resemble UITs in that they are a packaged group of preselected securities, but unlike traditional UITs they trade daily in the markets like stocks and can be bought and sold in intraday trading. Many ETFs are also geared to produce income using the strategies described above.
The Dwarfpool ZEC pool doesn’t have enough hash power to have reliable earnings for only 24 hours mining. Especially with the increase in difficulty after the pump last week. They will often go more than 24 hours before even finding a block, or sometimes find several blocks in a few hours. That’s just how mining works. In the long run it evens out, but that’s not a pool to mine ZEC on for consistent earnings in a short period. For that you need to mine on one of the larger pools like Flypool.

High Yield portfolios are subject to certain risks such as market and investment style risk. Fixed-income investments are subject to certain risks such as interest rate, inflation, and credit risks. High-yield fixed-income securities, also known as “junk bonds,” are considered speculative, involve greater risk for default and tend to be more volatile than investment-grade fixed-income securities.
That, in a nutshell, is why GPU’s can mine Bitcoins so much faster than CPU’s. Bitcoin mining requires no decision making – it is repetitive mathematical work for a computer. The only decision making that must be made in Bitcoin mining is, “do I have a valid block” or “do I not”. That’s an excellent workload to run on a GPU.
