On behalf of CryptoCoinMiningBlog I would love to wish you all a very Merry Christmas, 2017 was a fantastic and crazy year for crypto and I can only hope that 2018 will bring us more money and Bitcoin. As always we will be here to try and help you make as much as possible, the blog has grown considerably in 2017 and I am looking to push on even further in 2018

Have a great day and a good new year!

Where to Buy ADA Cardano



ADA has been around for a little while now but over the past few days it has absolutely exploded and is still going, we have seen an increase of 150% and it does not look like it is going to stop! So with all the questions I receive asking where to buy its easier for me to do a post

I recommend buying it from Binance

1, Create an account with Binance Here

2, Fund That account by clicking deposit and depositing either BTC or ETH. Also you can use BNB tokens which you get charged 50% less, one of the major reasons for using Binance

3, Now click exchange and click basic and find ADA token with the menu on the right hand side and buy

Once you have purchased your ADA I would suggest moving them out of the exchange into a suitable wallet

Someone Just Spent $700 Million On Ripple


Someone with a lot and I mean a lot of money truly truly believes in Ripple and has just bought a staggering 900,000,000XRP worth an estimated $700 million! That is an absolutely insane purchase which surely can only be purchased by a bank or a huge hedge fund of millionaires.

Doing a bit more reading it seems the rumours are its an Indian bank that has purchased this Ripple, how true that is I don't know but very interesting for all your Ripple lovers indeed

Where to Buy Litecoin?


With Litecoin going to the moon today alot of people have asked the best places to buy it from, it really depends where you are at with crypto. So I will give you a few options

Coinbase
If you are looking to buy it pain free with a debit/credit card and get the transaction instantly then for me you have to use Coinbase. The fee's will be a bit higher but you really well not get it quicker anywhere else. Also if you sign up now you will get a free $10 worth of Bitcoin aswell when you purchase over $100

Go check out Coinbase Here

If You Already Have Some Form Of Crypto
Then get it over to an exchange where you can sell that crypto off and buy into Litecoin, there are plenty of options such as Bittrex and Poloniex who are two of the biggest BUT both have had issues with Litecoin the past few days due to demand. So I would recommend the two other biggest exchanges Bitfinex or Binance

Alternatively you can instantly change your crypto into Litecoin using Changelly service which is similar to an exchange but is much much simpler and quicker to use

Start Mining Electroneum On PC

Electroneum is currently under massive maintenance due to being hacked which has put there whole project on hold withe the mobile mining. Although I never realised that people have started mining the coin on PC since November when it should only have been minable through mobiles. At the moment on whattomine.com it sits top of the charts for returns so I am going to help you get started if you are looking to get involved.

First you will need a wallet, you could setup a paper wallet which is easy enough but you will not be able to transfer funds to exchanges which in my eyes is pointless. So we need a wallet we can move coins in and out of so we can get them over to the exchange and get them sold

What Crypto Exchange Should I Use?



A quick list of some of the exchanges that I recommend using if you are looking to buy new coins, tokens or start dabbling into trading

Binance
One of the freshest exchanges that has breathed a bit of new life and excitement into your standard crypto exchanges. Offering one of the lowest fee's if using their own token and one of the best mobile trading apps it comes high on my list of exchanges to use

KuCoin
As with Binance Kucoin is one of the newer exchanges on the market that comes with an incredible set of tools to use and is incredibly fresh, it makes Bittrex and Poloniex look dated. In my eyes this and Binance will be the biggest in the next few years

One of the most different exchanges availible on the web, transactions only cost 0.5% and you can do it straight from a debit card. Crypto to Crypto exchanges are very simple and done at the press of a button and no long winded verification process is required. Definitely in my top two

Bitfinex
Based out of Hong Kong and operational since 2014 Bitfinex is great for newcomers who generally aren't looking for in depth trading tools and want a clean and easy to use exchange. Bitfinex also allows trading with USD which alot of the others dont

Bittrex
Bittrex is a US-based cryptocurrency exchange that provides you the option to trade more than 190 cryptocurrencies at a time. They are well-regulated and compliant with all of the current US rules. Possibly one of the biggest exchanges out there in terms of volume, although as with Poloniex customer service can be somewhat questionable

Poloniex
Operational since January 2014 and is undoubtedly one of the biggest cryptocurrency exchanges in the world. It is based out of the United States and offers +100 cryptocurrencies to its users to trade. Sets the record for ETH trading at one point although now it feels a bit outdated and again customer service can take weeks to get back to you if at all


As always trade at your own risk and dont trade what you cant afford to lose. Do not hold your coins in exchanges always get the appropriate wallet and hold them in their unless you are considering quick trading, which I unless you are highly experienced I would stay away from

One of the best profits I've made is from holding coins from doing my own research

Where To Buy EOS


At the moment after we have just got over the IOTA hype I keep getting asked where people can buy EOS. Its another coin with a massive hype around it that is yet to break onto major exchanges and break into the mainstream of crypto, which generally means that its going to be a very good investment. Also with the co-founder of wikipedia releasing a statement that he sees EOS being the only crypto to handle hosting Wikipedia, its worth an investment

I recommend buying it from Binance

1, Create an account with Binance Here

2, Fund That account by clicking deposit and depositing either BTC or ETH. Also you can use BNB tokens which you get charged 50% less, one of the major reasons for using Binance

3, Now click exchange and click basic and find EOS token with the menu on the right hand side and buy

Once you have purchased your EOS I would suggest moving them out of the exchange into a suitable wallet, metamask or myetherwallet

25k Pending Eth Transactions


Currently ETH is sitting still and since the 2nd December which has 2000 pending transactions we are now at 25000 pending transactions. This is something I never thought I would see with ETH as the last update has been amazing, GAS fee's currently sit at 40 cents per transaction!

 Even Vitalik Buterin Ethereum's creator said he never thought he would see the price of Ethereum's transactions exceed 20 cents. This is bad news for Ethereum, one of the biggest things it has going for it is speed and small transaction fee. This needs to be resolved quickly otherwise this may have massive repercussions 

Damn you cryptokitties

IOTA Passes $3


IOTA is absolutely flying, we announced the huge partnership with 20+ big names and at the moment all I feel like I am doing is reporting on IOTA but I am seriously excited for this currency. I've been watching IOTA for a long time and now seeing all this new money come into it is great, bare in mind this crypto is still in beta, its still not on major exchanges and 2018 could be huge for it. It has just topped $3 at the time of writing this and I am hoping to come back next year and laugh at the price and as always wish I bought more just like ETH

Going to repost some useful links so everyone can jump on board the IOTA train

Buy it from Bitfinex as the rates are generally better. Also if you wish you can use referral code g0xLUWV1YL to get discounted trade fee's. 

Alternatively Binance has now started trading IOTA and you can use their own token to cover fee's. Check Binance out Here

IOTA Officially Partners With Microsoft and Fujitsu


If any of you have been following this blog for a little while you will know that I absolutely love and believe in IOTA and have been posting many articles and news on the currency. Well today we have seen a massive 30% price increase which is continuing as I type this because IOTA has released possibly some of the biggest news to come into crypto

They have officially partnered with Microsoft (YES MICROSOFT) and Fujitsu to lauch cryptocurrency market for the internet of things. So like me you probably went wow thats great news but what the hell does that mean, well.. The initiative, which will allow stakeholders to share and monetize their data in a secure way, aims to demonstrate a proof of concept for a tamper-proof data marketplace. Once uploaded to IOTA’s decentralized ledger, all data is distributed to countless nodes in order to ensure immutability.


Also the above was tweeted which confirmed Fujitsu being included with the partnership and this sent everyone into meltdown within the IOTA community. The big difference with IOTA is it does not use the conventional blockchain technology, it is run on the "tangle" which is not easy to describe but you can see a good visualization demo here for it

IOTA is currently sitting 9th on coinmarket cap with a market cap of $2.95 billion, if you wish to buy some IOTA check out our blog post on where to buy here

How To Claim Your Bitcoin Gold BTG



I have been waiting and waiting to claim my Bitcoin Gold, I have been very sceptical with it all to say the least but I have finally claimed it and I believe it is the safest way. This guide will be written with using Bitcoin Core so if you use another wallet this method may not be perfect for you but if you control your private key it should be very similar

First things first create another wallet with Bitcoin core making sure you back up the new wallet.dat and the old wallet.dat. Move your funds into your new wallet, this is now your safe wallet that you will keep using. Your old wallet.dat will be the one that has the Bitcoin Gold, this is the one we are going to extract the keys from

Coin Market Cap One Year Ago Today


Interesting to look at a snapshot of the top ten coins this time last year and how different the price is on almost all these coins. Obviously the big stand out is Bitcoin which at the time was trading at $747 and at the time of writing it is now $7726 which when you look at it like that is an absolutely insane increase. As always every year I look at things like this and always think to myself should of bought more! Don't we all!


So if we look at the top ten from coin market cap today it is very different but a couple of the key performers are still in there. Three mentions of big climbers have to be the rise of Bitcoin Cash, Iota and Neo. Also worth a mention the price of Ethereum in the top picture standing at $0.53 and today sits at $334 which again in the space of a year is a huge increase!

Segwit 2x Cancelled




Once again Bitcoin is the winner, as of today the upcoming fork into Segwit2x has been cancelled with the below statement. This is massively good news, as we speak altcoins are going absolutely nuts which is good for all of us that invested when they were on a red bloodbath. So happy to be reading the Sexwit2x news as to takes away the unknown that was coming with the fork which potential could of harmed Bitcoin.

Another win for Bitcoin

The Segwit2x effort began in May with a simple purpose: to increase the
blocksize and improve Bitcoin scalability. At the time, the Bitcoin
community was in crisis after nearly 3 years of heavy debate, and consensus
for Segwit seemed like a distant mirage with only 30% support among miners.
Segwit2x found its first success in August, as it broke the deadlock and
quickly led to Segwit’s successful activation. Since that time, the team
shifted its efforts to phase two of the project - a 2MB blocksize increase. Our goal has always been a smooth upgrade for Bitcoin. Although we
strongly believe in the need for a larger blocksize, there is something we
believe is even more important: keeping the community together.
Unfortunately, it is clear that we have not built sufficient consensus for
a clean blocksize upgrade at this time. Continuing on the current path
could divide the community and be a setback to Bitcoin’s growth. This was
never the goal of Segwit2x. As fees rise on the blockchain, we believe it will eventually become
obvious that on-chain capacity increases are necessary. When that happens,
we hope the community will come together and find a solution, possibly with
a blocksize increase. Until then, we are suspending our plans for the
upcoming 2MB upgrade. We want to thank everyone that contributed constructively to Segwit2x,
whether you were in favor or against. Your efforts are what makes Bitcoin
great. Bitcoin remains the greatest form of money mankind has ever seen,
and we remain dedicated to protecting and fostering its growth worldwide. Mike Belshe, Wences Casares, Jihan Wu, Jeff Garzik, Peter Smith and Erik
Voorhees -- *Mike Belshe*

My Thoughts On The Upcoming Fork



Copied from my facebook post

Getting very concerned with some of these posts I am reading across many groups to do with Segwit 2X
I have been researching as much as possible but I am unable to find a definitive answer to what we think is going to happen. This could possibly be the biggest event in Bitcoins life so far. Lots have people have been taking their Bitcoins and selling for either USDT or LTC or BCH, this shocks me and again I am struggling to understand it. I understand they want to keep the currency they have safe and since B2X is a complete unknown it could possibly be the safest bet, BUT to my knowledge those that hold BTC in most exchanges or hold the private key will get an equal amount of Segwit 2x.
So why the need to sell up? From what I have read majority of people are worried of a 51% attack happening through Segwit 2X which could possible bring BTC to its knees.
Me personally, I will hold my Bitcoin just like I have done through the China news, I do not see BTC going anywhere. Yes the technology of Bitcoin is not perfect for transactions but I believe people are past that.
We will have to wait and see, the best advice I can give is do YOUR own research about the upcoming fork. Don't trust people on Facebook or Reddit do YOUR research and have YOUR opinion on what you want to do.
By all means if you find out anything interesting or any interesting links do post them in the comments. I am still carrying out my research and what I have posted is just the conclusion I am at so far

New AMD Drivers Bring 12 GPU support


AMD have released another load of drivers on us last week which bring a key new feature to everyone who is involved in GPU mining. The new Radeon software will allow support for 12 GPU's under Window 10 when the previous limit was 8, great news for all you GPU farm owners.

GPU Workload
A new toggle in Radeon Settings that can be found under the “Gaming”, “Global Settings” options. This toggle will allow you to switch optimization between graphics or compute workloads on select Radeon RX 500 and Radeon RX 400 series graphics products.
Compute Support
Radeon Software now supports compute workloads for up to 12 installed Radeon RX 400, Radeon RX 500 or Radeon RX Vega series graphics products on Windows 10 system configurations.

Free SAT Tokens Sphere


Continuing on from what I have previously said I will try to post as many free airdrops I come accross as possible. Todays one being Sphere which is for a decentralised social network which is gaining some serious backing

Here is what they say

Sphere was built on the idea that privacy, company transparency, and data security should be the fundamental building blocks of every social platform. So we believe that the millions those corporations are making off of your data doesn't belong to them, it belongs to you.
We are creating a decentralized social network, separate from those corporations, that allows exactly that. You have a say, you get compensated, and above all you take back the power with every connection and every interaction.

Seems like a good project but lets be honest we are here for the free crypto, go and sign up now and receive 100 SATS which they are estimating at $5

Safest Way To Store Your Bitcoins


One of the questions we are probably asked most is what is the safest way or wallet to store my Bitcoins or other crypto? Simply the safest way is the Ledger Nano wallet, this hands down will beat any online wallet or any desktop based wallet. If you have crypto that you need to keep safe you need one of these

One of the best things about the Ledger Nano S is that not only can you store Bitcoin on it but it allows a range of other altcoins to be stored, and more and more are added. Here is a quick picture if the coins currently supported (this will change as more are added almost weekly)

If you are serious about crypto and you have started to accumulate a decent amount in value then the price of the Ledger Nano S is a small price to pay to know that your crypto is safe

Check out the official page here at https://www.ledgerwallet.com

New Closed Facebook Group


With our website growing rapidly and trying to expand into other avenues I have created a close Facebook group page. The intention of this is to be a friendly community where we can help anyone with anything to do with crypto, from mining to trading to generally asking crypto related questions. I only have one rule to start with and that will be the posting of no referral links, I tend to find that referral links are a key part of spamming groups. I believe this will be a good expansion to our community to which now we have the blog, Facebook page, Reddit page and closed Facebook group

Join the group here https://www.facebook.com/groups/801366726654744/

If you have any suggestions to what you would like to see added to the page or anything you think we could add to make our platforms better then don't hesitate to send us a message

October Updates and Token Freebies



Thought I would write a quick update post from some of the information I have posted on our Facebook page that will be useful to you guys that check the blog.

I will start with Authorship Token ATS

If you remember we promoted getting yourself free ATS tokens, they have now got to quite a bit in value. They are currently trading on EtherDelta at 0.000126400 ATS/ETH and have just been added to HitBTC also. Totally up to you what you wish to do with them but I kinda dumped mine, that could be a decision I learn to regret if the price continues upwards

More Free Token Drops

I havent done to much research on these tokens but I have found them all to be free airdrops, so check them out and see for yourself they could return you some decent BTC which it looks like ATS token will be doing. 

IF there is any other free airdrops do post them or send them to me on the contact us form and I will get them posted. Alternatively just comment on our facebook page with them

Where To Buy IOTA?


Currently at the time of writing I really do believe IOTA is one of the most stand out and undervalued cryptocurrencies that has huge potential. One of the biggest issues of getting yourself some IOTA is currently it is only listed on two exchanges. Binance and Bitfinex currently list IOTA, now this is a good sign as at the moment it isn't on the two biggest exchanges so it is still keeping it relatively cheap

So why IOTA?

Here are some brief points of why you should get yourself some IOTA

  1. It has a zero transactional fee. (Something I personally love the most)
  2. Its pre-mined and all coins have been distributed, so there is no corporation holding any coins. (I.e. no central power in terms of coins)
  3. There are no mining benefits. So corporation will stay away from mining. (Complete decentralized network)
  4. It's quantum secure. (Even supercomputers cannot guess your public keys)
  5. The network becomes stronger when the number of transactions increases. (So there won't be any problems of network clogging)

I will provide some links at the bottom for more information but I would suggest you buy it from Bitfinex as the rates are generally better. Also if you wish you can use referral code g0xLUWV1YL to get discounted traded fee's. 

Alternatively Binance has now started trading IOTA and you can use their own token to cover fee's. Check Binance out Here

I will now drop some links for getting started with your IOTA

Bitcoin Reaches New All Time High



Over the last 24 hours there has been a mad flurry of activity within the Bitcoin market, first we see Bitcoin go on a huge run and break the $5000 barrier. Then I wake up in the morning to find out that Bitcoin peaked at $5854!!

I was amazed and shocked, $5000 was enough for me I really did not think we were going to carry on and run nearly to six thousand. I see six thousand dollars being really achievable now before the end of the year, although I will wait before I make anymore decisions and see what Bitcoin Gold will do to the price. I am expecting it to dip, not massively but I think we will see a dip mainly because people are stocking up on Bitcoin so they can claim their own Bitcoin gold. Then once they have sold their Bitcoin Gold (which I believe most people will dump straight away) they will re invest their money into altcoins and they will see a huge push in price

The altcoin market is slumped at the moment what with Bittrex having some strange goings on as we saw everything on Bittrex drop in price, and also like I said above people selling off their altcoins to have as much Bitcoin for the Bitcoin Gold Drop.

Could we really see peoples predictions of $10k next year become true? I really think it will depend on how the 25th October pans out

Dont forget if you are looking to buy some Bitcoin check out our top places to buy from here

Contribute To The IOTA Tangle


IOTA is one of the few projects I believe in and we have spoken about since the start of the year, its the technology the devs and the community behind it that really makes it stand out to me. Also the zero transaction fee's I believe IOTA could have a big big future ahead of it.

Anyway, if like me you are invested in IOTA and wish to contribute to the tangle you can download the IOTA transaction spammer. What the hell is this I hear you ask, well simply it used up a bit of your CPU power in a webpage to confirm transactions on the IOTA tangle, anyone that does this is making a huge contribution to the network. Unfortunately there is no reward for it but if you honestly believe in something then a bit of CPU idle time will go to good use

You can download the webspammer here or use the web version here (no dowload required for web version)

I found having an IOTA wallet open at the time syncs the node fully but it should work without it

Thank you to anyone that contributes

Bitcoin Gold Fork Expected October 25th


On October 25th we will see another Bitcoin fork but this time it will be very very different from what we have seen before. This is a community activated fork and it is a complete change of algorithm, it will now use Equihash which in simple terms is mined by GPU's.

When Bitcoin Cash was announced I got my free coins and dumped it as I just see it as free money, with the upcoming release of Bitcoin Gold I am a bit more sceptical. I seriously will be considering holding onto this as I see an answer to Bitcoins transaction and mining issues with keeping the name. Make sure you have Bitcoin in your wallets come October 25th!

Whats your thoughts on this? Will you dump or hodl?

Ethereum Mining Difficulty Reaches Record High



The second biggest cryptocurrency Ethereum has seen a huge jump in difficulty as it has never seen before. It is currently at the time of writing hovering around the 3TH mark which may cause a big big problem for home GPU miners. I know I turned off my little GPU farm a while ago and sold it all when the RX480 prices were insanely high, my question now is how much has this affected your earnings? I am not sure if I have ever seen such a rise in difficulty so quickly with majority of the rise taking only 24 hours to reach its peak

I would be very interested to hear from people who have Ethereum mining rigs

First Bitcoin Only House Purchase Completed in Texas



Everyday is another milestone for Bitcoin, today we have seen another price drop this week and another recovery things have been a bit crazy recently. Although this has not halted progression, we have now seen the first Bitcoin only house purchase be completed in Texas. Alot of you may not think this is much of a big deal but believe me it is. This adoption is important as it will increase momentum, publicity and price cycle, which will only grown Bitcoin.

The new owner sent the Bitcoin to the seller who then converted it into USD and he had this to say

"In all of my 33 years of closing transactions, I honestly couldn't have expected something so unique to go so smoothly. In a matter of 10 minutes, the Bitcoin was changed to US Dollars and the deal was done!”
Must of used a high transaction fee :) but seriously this is just another step to widespread usage of  Bitcoin

Electroneum Mobile Crypto Currency



Today I have come across Electroneum which is an ICO that is gathering a big following and from watching the video above you can see why. One of the hardest things with crypto is getting started and learning everything from wallets to mining, as the video says Electroneum aims to end this and make crypto more accessible to more people.

The future as the video says is aimed at gamers, a currency that can be used between games and transferred into real money. It has a great team behind it and I definitely think it is worth keeping an eye on

Check out Electroneum here

Google Looking To Accept Bitcoin Payments With API Change

Rumours were flying around that Google was about to make an API update to their own browsers and others that would accept Bitcoin as a payment option. Today with an update that was confirmed within the API change that it looks as if Bitcoin will be a viable payment method via your web browser.

As you can see in the above screenshot it accepts the payment type as XBT which is the currency symbol for Bitcoin. This is a major step in the direction of being able to make payments with Bitcoin, my only worry is would the Bitcoin network be able to support this many payments this quickly?

Again this could be a load of nothing more than wishful thinking but I see this a future readiness for fast Bitcoin payments

RNDR Render Token Blockchain Based GPU Rendering



With so many new tokens being released based on the Ethereum network it is really hard to pick one from the crowd that stands out. I have come across render token and read the whitepaper and can honestly say that this is a token with a genuine purpose and would benefit alot of people

Render Token aims to make massive GPU rendering power available to the masses at a fraction of the cost for rendering light-fields and more. Light-fields can be thought of as volumetric representations of a scene, where every view possible has already been calculated, allowing for real-time playback of cinema-quality scenery, even in demanding applications like virtual reality. Normally this kind of technology is only for the huge companies that can afford supercomputers but with RNDR we can all put our GPU's to use and get paid for our input.

If you are struggling to get the concept think of Folding@home or SETI@home you are sharing your computing power only difference is with Render Token they will pay your for your input

How One Tweet Can Crash Bitcoin Price


If today you are looking at the Bitcoin price thinking to yourself what the f*ck has happened then let me tell you what I know. At the time of writing Bitcoin is down to the lowest we have seen in a while $3789 and it is all due to one mans tweet.

Charlie Lee a well respected figure in the world of crypto tweeted that Bitcoin was going to be banned in China and he had heard it from a reliable anonymous source. This was huge, this instantly had an effect on the price as we saw it start to crash down from $4500. Then the tweet gets edited, it gets edited to Bitcoin EXCHANGES are going to be banned in China. Now the difference between Bitcoin being banned and Bitcoin Exchanges being banned is massive, exchanges should have no real effect on the world but had it of been Bitcoin it would of affected everyone.

Now my question is this, was this a huge paid off pump and dump on a scale we have never seen before. If investors had millions waiting knowing this one tweet was going to cause a price crash then this could make them an absolute fortune in profit.

We will have to wait and seem when it recovers

Keep Track Of Your Bittrex & Poloniex Trading Free


Tracking your trading can be one of the hardest and most annoying things you have to do, we have found you some alternatives before. Blockfolio for tracking long term holds but you have to input everything manually and the free Poloniex spreadsheet which is good but only does Poloniex stats. If like me you use multiple exchanges these generally aren't good enough, today I was pointed in the direction of Altpocket.

Altpocket is very new and still currently in Beta stage but it is a tracking system online where it imports all of your Bittrex and Poloniex trades and tells you your profit/loss. Its as simple as importing your APi keys and the Altpocket does the rest. Another nice touch is they have created it like a social platform aswell which allows you to have interaction with the rest of the community

Best Android App To Track Your Crypto Portfolio



One of the hardest things to do can be tracking all the crypto you have invested in if you have it located in different wallets and different exchanges. Also sometimes you just want to see if you have made money at the push of a button. Well now you can. Blockfolio is a simple app for Android and iPhone which simply does what we wanted as above. Simply put your purchase price in and the app does the rest tracking prices and working out how much profit you have made or how much loss, although we hope it is profit :D

Another very useful feature is being able to set alerts when currency hits a top price or bottom price you want alerting for, very handy if you are looking to sell or use as a stop loss.

Check out Blockfolio on the Appstore or Google Play Store

Altcoin Forecasts


Today I came across a website that will interest alot of new traders and alot of people that are thinking of getting into trading. The website is Altcoin Forecast and it does exactly what it says, they provide short term and long term graphs on possible market movements. Do remember though these are only market predictions these are not guaranteed, so don't start putting lots of money into a  coin because they said it is going it go up, it is merely a guide.

Im going to monitor a few coins they have done graph predictions for and will see what happens, I have read lots of good feedback so far

OmiseGo Officially Partnered With McDonalds Thai



Well looking at OmiseGo's official Twitter this coin very well be just as promising as all the recent rumours are proving. They have announced on their twitter that they have officially confirmed their relationship with McDonalds Thailand. This is Huge! As I am writing this I would not be surprised if we are seeing OMG coin's price going to the moon, I have invested early in OMG and I am crossing my fingers this will just bring more profit to the coin

I still think there is time to invest looking at Bittrex but I am writing this now when the price is .00236926 which although it is at a high for OMG I do believe with news like this its just the start?

Have you invested in OMG? If not will you invest now?

Convert Crypto Instantly At The Best Rate With Changelly


Sometimes if you need to convert coins fast you get sucker punched on the exchange rate and end up not getting as much as you possibly would if you traded with a regular exchange. Changelly are here to literally change that, they are instant and with the best exchange rate of any exchange out there. One of the most convenient things about this service is with BTC's slow transaction time now I can transfer it to Ethereum and get an almost instant transaction.

They are used by over 300,000 members and with their exchange fee's set at 0.5% you can really see why. For anyone who trades multiple crypto and and needs to exchange coins hassle free then this really is for you

Free WCX Tokens


I think I am going to make this a regular thing as it has been proving to be quite popular on our Facebook and blog page. If I find a token which is offering a free giveaway and believe me I do come across a lot of them I will start posting them. To me a lot of them will probably fail but if the tokens are for free then it does not matter, and even if you can make a $1 it has to be worth two minutes of your time. Also if you come across any coins that are offering free tokens then please use the contact us page to inform us. Thanks guys!

What is the name of the token?
WCXT

What are they? 
A low cost digital currency exchange offering all token holders a split of 20% of the future exchange fee's

How many free tokens can I get?
You get 50 free WCXT tokens upon sign up

Will it make me rich?
Extremely unlikely, but for free even if we make $1 we win

Are they on any exchanges?
No not yet the ICO has not even begun and does not begin till 10.10.17

Where can I get these free tokens?
By visiting their website 

Return Of XMR Monero


In the last 24 hours we have seen an insane price increase in Monero XMR, this comes as great news to people who are holding bags and were waiting to sell off like me and investors alike. We have seen nearly a increase of  0.01BTC per coin as you can see from the image up top

I have been searching around looking for rumours to find out why we have seen an XMR explosion when the coin has been down for a long time. I have come to find that I believe the increase in price is due to XMR being added to one of the largest South Korean exchanges, they are also the people that have caused the recent Ripple boom.

At the time of writing we are seeing 51 of the 100 main crypto's in the green which for traders is great news after having a few months of poor prices

AMD Radeon Vega Mining Benchmark


I have come across many benchmarks now for AMD's incoming release of their new Vega 64 GPU and the results are just a bit meh to be honest. For a GPU that is costing over here in the UK over £500 I did expect a hashrate of more than 30MH/s but I suppose until we have the latest drivers for it and no doubt Claymore will release an updated version. At least we can take from this that it out performs the GTX 1080 massively but then again so does the 1070 which I still confuses the hell outta me

Hash per Watt the Vega is 0.09MH/s per Watt which brings it slightly under the GTX 1070 which is 0.13MH/s per Watt. Other rumours circulating is that the Vega 56 will be only be 2-5MH/s slower but will be cheaper, how cheap we are yet to find out.

I dont see this GPU to be good enough for people to start replacing all of their 480/580's just yet, if the cost of it was even just £100 less then I really think people would consider it.

Whats your thoughts? Will you be buying?

How To Create A NEO Wallet And Earn GAS


Creating a NEO wallet and earning GAS is something that I have not found to be very clear around on the internet and overall it isn't even really a great process. This is because it involves you logging into the wallet with your private key which is not the greatest for security

Something very important to take note of is the fact that like all other cryptocurrency the NEON wallet is just an interface, your coins are NOT stored in this wallet you are simply pairing with the interface. You must keep the private key as secure as possible, if someone gains access to this you could lose all of your funds.

Now setting up the wallet is rather simple, it just depends on how far you want to go with security to make sure your NEO is in safe hands. If you have lots of NEO that is worth a small fortune I would suggest doing this on a computer that is a FRESH install and is completely offline.

Download The NEON wallet here

Install the wallet and then you will be presented with the screen below.

Overstock.com Accepts Payment From 40+ Cryptocurrencies



Overstock.com has been accepting Bitcoin now for a little while now and CEO Patrick Byrne has said that their weekly Bitcoin sales is around $50000 and has been for some time. This is a very good sign of stability for a major website selling almost everything for the home taking regular payment via Bitcoin.
   Now Byrne has gone one step further and announced that Overstock.com will take payment from 40+ altcoins, this is huge. For those that have high value wrapped up in altcoins this saves you transferring and exchanging all your crypto and incurring high fee's. Now you can go straight ot Overstock.com and purchase with all major altcoins. For me this is a sign of things to come, Byrne has been a long time Bitcoin supported and the adoption of altcoins can only be a good thing for the cryptocurrency community

Where would you like to see start accepting payment in crypto?

Claiming Bitcoin Cash From Bitcoin Core Wallet




I have finally claimed my Free Bitcoin Cash and eventually after looking through tons and tons of guides found the easiest way to do it from your Bitcoin Core wallet. As always this is a risk, it involves revealing your private keys which is why you should move your BTC to a new wallet before doing this so your Bitcoin is not compromised

Seriously its as easy as that, but on another serious note this is a risky business especially if you have high amounts of BTC. We take no responsibility for you carrying out this procedure

What you will need

Coinomi downloaded on your phone updated to the latest version, then setup Coinomi as below


AntShares Rise 100% In Just A Week



We previously talked about our investments for 2017 and asked people what their own investments are, you can check that out here. One of the coins we included in this was Antshares and this week with the Bitcoin fork and Bitcoin Cash news all happening we did see Antshares rise by 100% in just a week. This has come as great great news for all early investors and hopefully we are going to see a good return on this coin.

For me I will not be selling even with the massive high, I will be holding onto mine and waiting to see what the future holds in store for Antshares. As always its a gamble as we could see the price plummet down to zero, or it could do a Bitcoin/Ethereum you never know


It currently at the time of writing sits just outside of the top 10 crypto's when comparing market cap. Again to me this all comes as good news, WAVES is currently 16th which again is another of my investments and is performing very well. 

Which have you invested in that has returned you a good profit in 2017?

Buy Or Sell Your Hashing Power And Earn Bitcoin

Nicehash has now been around for a long time and has established itself as a major player in buying and selling hashing power. I think this is down to its unique way that the whole system works which works out fair for not only people selling their own hashing power but people investing also see good returns and usually a profit.

The way it works is pretty simple, if you own a mining Asic or a GPU rig or even a single GPU you can download the software and start mining. The thing I like most is how easy it is to use, no complicated setting up BAT files just click start after benchmarking and you are making Bitcoin.

Now if you are buying again it is also very simple, you go onto the Nicehash marketplace and select the algorithm that you want to mine. After doing this YOU select how much you want to pay and how much speed you wish to purchase. This is very very effective if you notice a coin is on an upward trend and you work out you that you can make a good profit.

The best thing overall about Nicehash is unlike other cloud mining scams we have seen in the past it has proved time and time again to be the number one for buying hash power. No risk no gambles

Earn Bitcoin Without Mining With FaucetSystem.com


Not every has the equipment of even the money to start mining Bitcoin these days, to get started could cost you thousands and thousands of dollars. We have returned to GPU mining now which has become profitable over other currencies but some people still cant or wont want to do this.

This brings me to Bitcoin faucet pages, if you dont know what they are in basic principles its a website that gives you free BTC for looking at adverts. They get paid we get paid all happy. Now the transactions will micro transactions so dont expect to get much back in return, but if you have an hour a day to put into faucets then you have a real possibility of acquiring some Bitcoin

Going through and finding individual faucet pages can be a right pain in the backside, this is where Faucetsystem.com comes it. Think of it like a gateway where it lists all the faucets and all you have to do is click each one and do the annoying "are you human" checks. I trialed it for around 10/15 minutes and managed to accumulate 0.00000532BTC which really is very little.

Like I said if you want to get just some BTC then this may be a method for you but dont expect huge returns and expect to sit through lots of annoying adverts and annoying click bait. On a plus side you wont find a better way to do faucet systems than through faucetsystem.com
