How To Mine ASIC Resistant CryptoCurrency PURK


We have been strongly talking recently about ASIC resistant cryptocurrency first was being Raven (RVN) and then secondly in detail about Monero hard fork to avoid Bitmains newest and most worthless ASIC miners. To continue this trend we have been looking and another cryptocurrency has popped up with some key features that in all honesty we do not see from new coins anymore

Official PURK website
Mineable Crypto
No Pre-mine, Instamine or ICO
CPU + GPU mineable
Wild Keccak algorithm

That little list right there got my attention, so I decided to look into a bit further and get mining. If you are looking for a brief description of what they are trying to achieve it is here

What is Purk?

Purk was created to help content owners and service providers monetise their website or application by accepting quick and easy micropayments from their users or customers. Website users can send Purk to a content owner or service provider to show appreciation for their hard work.
By sending micropayments as a donation, it highly reduces the amount of monetisation that is needed on a website. Instead of using intrusive adverts, affiliate links, pop ups and sponsored posts, website owners can install the Purk Button and accept quick and easy payments to monetise their content or service instead. Not only does this reduce the amount of promotional clutter on a website, it also reduces costs on content writing and saves time by allowing your customers to tip/pay your writers or employees directly.

 First step I would go and get yourself a PURK wallet, install and sync so you are ready to store your

Baikal Miner, Buy 1 Get 4 Free


Yes the title is right, it looks like Baikal miner might be trying to recover some profit after being badly beaten by Bitmain in hashrate and machine release. If you buy one of their miners for cryptonight mining they will send you four more for free. Although at $1900 you will need all 5 to match the Bitmain version in hashrate.

Personally I will still stay well clear of these miners as I do not see them getting anywhere near a return on what you invest. Although if you really really want to go buy some Baikal miners you can check it out http://www.baikalminer.com/product12.php

Rent My Rig & Many Others With Mining Rig Rentals

A Lot of people use Nicehash to rent or sell renting power due to how easy it is, but did you know you are not always receiving the best rate? Mining rig rentals is something which I have recently switched to because of the better rates selling and buying hashing power. On top of that I find the website a lot more user friendly than Nicehash which can sometimes be confusing to work out or calculate.



Mining rig rentals list the available miners in an easy to follow and cost efficient list making sure you will always get the best deal for you you can see this from the image above. From a sellers perspective I personally like it as I can set my own price for what my miner will sot me to use, so I can make sure that I will always minimum cover my electricity costs.

The other question I had, what will my miner do while its not rented? Well luckily for us they have actually thought about this and you setup your mining pools within Mining Rig rentals so while your miner isn't rented it mines at the pools you set it. Much like you would if you was setting up your miner normally without rentals

SuprNova Releases Its Own CCminer For RVN Mining


Raven has been a very successful coin for people switching over their GPU's to, alot of people think it has a bright future being open source and having a busy community already behind it. One of the best mining pools is over at SuprNova and they have just released there own version of CCminer which is the quickest RVN miner so far.

You can head on over to the pool at https://rvn.suprnova.cc
Click the link in the top box taking you to the Github, or just go here https://github.com/ocminer/suprminer/releases

The other nice thing is the start .BAT files are ready to go, all you need to do is right click and edit them with your username for your worker. Nice and easy

Details Of Bitmain Antminer E3


I really thought I had already posted about this as I have been very animated on Facebook and Twitter in regards to this miner. So here is my one line opinion, unless you have free electricity this is definitely not worth the hassle.

First some details, the Antminer E3 from Bitmain is a new ASIC which will mine Ethereum which for a long time has been only mineable from GPU's. It will mine at 180MH/s using 800 Watts which in all honesty I really do not think is enough to make a real good return compared with their other ASICs. By the time you receive your E3 in July the returns are going to be very poor indeed and you will be left with an oversized door stop, not to mention if Ethereum did plan to fork

That's my other issue, why is this miner so damn big? Its like two L3's stuck on top of each other, and then also only 180MH/s? To me that is extremely poor for an ASIC, when GPU's were at normal price I wouldn't have been surprised if you could build a GPU rig to out perform that.

As you can tell I am not impressed by the miner in the slightest, but the way of the crypto world people will buy these as its something "new". Personally I'd rather go and spend $1800 on buying some Bitcoin

I Made A Soundproof Box For My L3+




As promised in my earlier blog post about my L3 here it is in all its glory my home made box for my L3 taking the decibels down from 75 to 45/50ish. It might not sound like huge huge amount but it makes a huge difference in being able to live with it. I made the box big enough to have two side by side and the 4" ducting works well to extract all heat and surprisingly inside the box does not get that hot, the L3 sits at about 57 to 60 degrees.


Excuse the mess, I have taken over the kids play room

Pool Staking With Stake United


One of the best passive incomes in crypto other than masternodes is staking coins, although sometimes it can be very building up enough coins to make staking worthwhile. In comes Stake United, it is a pool which allows everyone to pool their coins together and stake in one big wallet giving returns which are a hell of alot better than anything you could achieve on your own.

Now it does comes with risks as you can imagine but to me no riskier than leaving your coins in an exchange. If you deposit your coins into Stake United and they disappear one day then obviously your coins are lost, so don't depend on them just try them out with a small amount first. Like anything in crypto it is always a risk of losing your coins

My First Week With My Antminer L3+


Ok so I probably got my L3+ a bit late compared to everyone else but I decided to take the plunge from GPU's back to ASIC's and its been an interesting week. The last ASIC I owned was an Antminer S1 or S2 cannot remember but it was a long time ago and it has become a much nicer experience since the early days. The onboard software is now very user friendly with some nice additions of auto off above 80 degrees and manual fan speeds. I remember it being very clunky to use when the first Antminers were on the scene, but this was very easy to setup and was running in a matter of minutes.

After turning it on and getting it running I found the huge huge downside to the L3+.... The fan noise, my god is it loud! My phone has it around 72DB from the rear exit fan which means you will not be having this miner in your lounge or your bedroom as it is just way to noisey. Luckily mine is in a room at the back of our house which is quite cool, so I set the fans at 35% which makes it a bit more bearable with temps not going over 55 degrees.


As you can see from above all is pretty good with temps except one board which seems to be getting quite a few hardware errors. Hopefully that does not get any worse and affect the performance of the L3+. Once mining away its pretty much forget and and let it mine, I've been searching around for the best mining pools to use and they come with some varied opinion, so I will give you my three that my Antminer is setup to

Prohashing.com - Stats galore, mines the most profitable Scrypt coins and coverts earnings into whatever coin you wish. I currently get my payments int 50% BTC and 50% LTC. Low payouts and plenty of information, earnings seem to be the highest for me

Litecoinpool.org - Pays out in Litecoin only, was seeing good results when I first used and that was until I started using Prohashing. If you are looking just for Litecoin earnings I would probably use here rather than Prohashing

Nicehash - I think we would be crazy to no put Nicehash on our list, reliable and again a switch pool that stays one of the highest in profit. I would of used Nicehash if I hadn't of had such good early results with Prohashing

Next step will be making a box because of the noise, today I went out and bought all the bits and have started making it. I will update with another post once its made and maybe even a little youtube video to show it. Also will be making the box a bit wider just in case we decide to get another Antminer, if I can source some cheaper electricity that is!!

Monero Forking To Stop Asics


As you might have seen in seven days roughly Monero will be forking to a new algorithm, CryptoNightV7. Why you may ask? Well this is because of a new breed of ASICs that have been released by Bitmain and another mining company. I cannot tell you enough do not fall for buying into the cryptonight ASIC miners, by the time you get it you will never ever make a return on it. Especially with all the main CryptoNight coins looking to fork over to a new ASIC proof algorithm

Bitmain are currently selling these miners for $7000 and are expected to be dispatched in May, which means by the time you get this miner Monero will have forked and expect earnings to be drastically lower. Normally I support Bitmain having bought from them for a long time, but these stand out to me as a big no no. Especially if you look into XMR's network hashrate the last few months you can almost see where these have been introduced. Some of you might be willing to take a gamble or a risk on these as the figures look to good to be true, please be careful and if you do get one please send us some feedback

Resources For Learning Cryptocurrency Trading



As some of you may know who follow my Twitter I have decided to take on trading, I am still trying to mine as much as possibly but learning trading signals is something I have always wanted to learn. Its very daunting at first almost like learning a new language but once you start doing a few online courses and playing with a few trading exchanges it all starts to become a little less scary.

I am still very new in trading but I would like to share with you guys some of the resources that I have been using to learn more about technical analysis and also just the terms used in trading. When I first heard people talking about being 'Bullish' and 'Bearish' I was like what the hell are these people going on about.

Hopefully these will provide you with a bit of help as it did me

Beginner Technical Analysis

Purpose Built Crypto Heater


When you think you have seen majority of innovations in the crypto world something always comes along to surprise you and the QC1 will definitely do that. The QC1 is the world's first purpose built crypto mining heater, which will mount to your wall heat your house and mine your favourite coins. The heater has two RX580 graphics cards inside which they say will mine at a steady 60MH/s while heating your home

Think of it as a computer and the whole outside is a huge passive cooling system, it uses 650 Watts but in case of the room being really cold it also has two inbuilt resistors to provide additional heating.



Now I have a few issues with this product....  Firstly, what the hell are you going to do in the summer? You want to do some mining but its hot outside you aren't going to turn your heater on to start mining. Secondly the price, it has a retail price of 2900 Euros which is roughly $3575 which for two RX580's to mine only in the summer in quite frankly ridiculous. As you can imagine the QC1 I am pretty sure unless you have free electricity will never provide you with a return on your investment and as the mining world moves forward and the RX580's become old and slow you will be left with an inefficient heater.

So if you leave somewhere that is permanently cold and have free electricity then this could be what you have been searching for. If not don't bother

You can check out the QC1 for yourself over on the official website https://www.qarnot.com/crypto-heater_qc1/

Trade Bitcoin Futures On Bitmex


Bitmex is an important website for anyone who has been trading for a little while and now is ready to start trading Bitcoin futures, or other altcoin futures for that matter. They allow you to buy contracts on future contracts with the price going up or down. The also offer leverage on each trade allowing you to x10 x100 your trade if you have enough BTC within your account to cover liquidation

Serious money is to be made on Bitmex and I am currently trying to learn Technical Analysis, although Bitmex is not for new starters. It is very easy to lose everything with how quick the price swings, if you don't really know what your doing you could end up in negative equity.

As an exchange Bitmex has been around for a while now and has proved itself it be a huge success with seasoned traders. The integration of trading view allows serious charting on the selected currency you wish to trade. I advise you check it out but again refrain from going on all if you are not sure what you are doing

Check out Bitmex Here

Next few days as we are trying to learn Technical Analysis I will load up some resources that we have been using

Nanex Exchange, Dedicated Nano Pairs


Anyone who has been hanging around the blog for a little while now knows that I am a major supporter of Nano, the currency is a huge change to the crypto world and I think we will really see it wake up this year. Today I am going to point you into the direction of Nanex exchange which is the only exchange to deal exclusively in Nano pairs.  The currently trade BTC/NANO, ETH/NANO, BTCP/NANO, LTC/NANO and GRLC/NANO. All we need is USD/NANO and I think it will be perfect

The platform is very friendly to use and extremely fast, also it is starting to grow extremely fast. Today writing this they have managed to surpass the $1,000,000 trading volume required to get entry on coinmarketcap.com. Once they manage to get listed in the coinmarketcap markets again expect the exchange to grow even more

You can check out the exchange here at https://nanex.co/
Also checkout their twitter which is also pretty active https://twitter.com/nanex_co

How To Mine LUX Coin


LUX coin has only been around 4 months at the time of writing this but it is already proving a little gem to mine with GPU's. There isn't much information on it and because the algorithm is not featured on whattomine.com's list yet it still returns a nice profit. Its uses an algorithm that I didn't even know existed until I was recommended to mine the coin PHI1612. 

Also the wallet for LUX is pretty nice and allows you to stake so lets get started


First Download the wallet, install and start syncing it, you can download it from the official website here

Next we need some mining software, I've been mining with my Nvidia 1070 and from what I can see you can also mine with AMD but I am not 100% sure. Download the Nvidia miner here 

Possible AMD miner here

Also I have created a simple BAT file to start mining, copy it to the CCminer folder and and right click and edit it. Change the red circled area to your own LUX wallet address. Download the bat file here



The bat file is setup to mine at altminer.net unimining.net, after you have changed your username head over to the website and enter your address to see your stats. The address will look something like this unimining.net/?address=LTGt7iFM2z7fNGmRgU8DrnKtnZvi1hbtgi

If you choose the AMD miner I still advise using altminer pool but obviously our bat file will not work with SGMINER

If there is anything I have forgotten do post a comment and let me know

Free Crypto Airdrops


One thing I have done for a while in crypto now is chase airdrops, a lot of people ask why the hell would you do that? Well we are all in it to make money aren't we and some of the airdrops probably 1 in 10 hell sometimes 1 in 20 will make you a quick buck. I have found myself now quickly able to tell which ones are worth the sign up and which ones aren't worth the 5 minutes it takes. After this I decided to run a subreddit alongside our blog so the blog does not get clogged up with airdrops.

A few pointers to keep these airdrops simple, privacy is key we don't want to reveal any real details to anyone

Create a new ETH wallet, Email address used only for airdrops

Use a unique password for your airdrop signups that you use nowhere else

If it asks for your first and last name, generally this can be ok but I tend to end false details

Never give them your mobile number, ultimate no no for me. Especially when your mobile number will normally be associated with your 2FA. You never know what they could get up to

Never give out a private key to any wallet for any crypto.

Assume every airdrop is a shitcoin and they are out to scam you, never click through anything on the email unless your 100% sure of what it is.

You can check our sub over at https://www.reddit.com/r/airdropalerts/

Get Started GPU Mining, Must Have Parts


The above image is pretty much I would imagine how most of us including myself start out, you add some more cards into your gaming rig but you soon quickly realise that this is not good enough. The cards run extremely hot, your tight on space and they aren't as efficient as they could be. So here are some items that are almost a must have when creating your GPU Rig

PCI-E Risers

PCI-E risers are a great start to getting your cards some of that much needed air to cool them down, this stops them being next to each other on the motherboard and should allow you to get your temps down. Most people can add them into their own case with a bit of modification but if you want to take the next step you might want to think about an open air case


Open Air Case

Now buying an open air pre built case like above is not really a must but it can help and tidy up your operation. Some people just see this as an extra cost but if you are all about looks and making your setup look nice and tidy and keeping it extra cool then this will be a must buy for you. On Amazon there is a ton of cases ranging from the small to the full shelf stacks

If you want to make your own case checkout this Youtube Guide here

Circle Purchases Crypto Exchange Poloniex


Anyone who has been in crypto for a little while will know that Poloniex at one point was almost one of the biggest echanges and used by thousands of people each day. Although a change came to the crypto world with the likes of Binance and Kucoin appearing brining new coins quickly and tons of referral opportunities and because of this a quickly outgrew Poloniex. 

There has been no real updates for a long time with Poloniex but today it all became clear.Goldman Sachs backed company Circle has bought Poloniex. This is a big step for Circle as they take another step forward in the crypto market establishing themselves as quite a big player. They have posted on their blog that the first thing they plan to tackle is Poloniex customer service which we know is near non existent.

It will be interesting to see what other changes will be brought to Poloniex in the near future

New Bitcoin Core 0.16.0 Will Feature New Code



Core is officially being updated and this could be the most exciting update that we have seen in almost ever. Everyone's complaints with Bitcoin is normally about transfer times and transfer costs and early in 2017 we did see transaction costs spiralling into silly money, well this could possibly be about to change forever

Bitcoin Core 0.16.0 will officially support Segwit which focuses on scaling the network to be faster and cheaper. Although Segwit has been around for a little while now its not until recently we have seen further adoption which has seen the amount of waiting transactions in the mempool drop drastically. Also along with Coinbase confirming they are in the final processes of adding Segwit support themselves this (until lightening network) could be one of the biggest changes we see to Bitcoin Core yet.

You can check the Bitcoin Core Github Here
Release I believe is expected around the 1st May

Five Current Best GPU's For Mining February 2018


This is going to be a difficult post as its almost going to go out fo date the minute I have posted this, but for February 2018 these are the graphics cards that we recommend for mining at the moment. Also For now trying to just include key points for the card



 


1. NVIDIA GTX 1070
  • Core Clock: 1506Mhz
  • Mem Clock: 8Gbps
  • Memory: 8GB DDR5
Positives
  • Good hashrate to power ratio
  • High amount of memory
Negatives
  • Expensive to buy, may cause long return on purchase
  • Low stock pretty much everywhere

Telegram ICO Raises $850 Million

The pre-sale for TON which is Telegrams own token has seen the ICO raise a huge $850 million according to a document filed with the US SEC. This can be seen here

At $850 million this is already the biggest ICO to date with the previous highest at only $350 million, but something to remember this ICO still is yet to go to public sale. It is expected to go to public sale in March and according to Bloomberg will look to raise a whopping $1.1 billion which would make the total around $2 billion. This could be the ICO not to miss in 2018

You can read the official whitepaper here

Currently as it stands I cannot find and pretty sure an official website does not excist yet, so keep your eyes peeled in March for an incoming website. Also be aware of scam sites if they do create a site please please confirm its official before sending any funds into an ICO

NEO Holders To Get ONT Airdrop


It seems more good news keeps coming from NEO and its team, they have announced this week that all holders of NEO will get an airdrop of ONT at a rate of 0.2ONT to every 0.1 of NEO. This is fantastic news from the NEO team and the crypto has been performing outstanding towards the end of last year and beginning of this year. 

A snapshot will be taken at block height 1974823, which is expected around March 1, 2018. So as long as you are holding NEO in a non exchange wallet you should recieve your NEP-5 token of ONT, although we may see Binance and Kucoin distribute ONT but to make sure I would hold it in a wallet


You can buy Neo below

Where To Buy Bitcoin With Debit Or Credit Card



As Bitcoin continues to grow we are seeing lots and lots of new people coming over and wondering where can they buy Bitcoins on card or for cash? I have always said for someone starting out in buying Bitcoin I believe this is one of the hardest things to get solved at the start. So we are going to list the main exchanges that accept card (one cash) and have been around a long time and can be trusted


Coinbase is probably the biggest of all exchanges online where you can instantly buy Bitcoin and even Ethereum with debit and credit card, buy $100 and get a free $10's worth through our link. I personally have used Coinbase alot on the past and although their fee's are not the cheapest the Bitcoin is instant. You can also setup a wallet with them so you can store your Bitcoins, although we always advise you storing your Bitcoins offline

You can check out Coinbase Here **Buy $100 or more and get $10 FREE!**


Here we have something very different with LocalBitcoins, again a huge huge company who have established themselves massively on the Bitcoin market but the way ti works is very very different. Unlike Coinbase and CEX you do not buy your Bitcoins directly from Localbitcoins. Instead they act as a middle man and you purchase from other people selling Bitcoin. They make it safe by holding the Bitcoin in escrow until the payments and Bitcoin have all been confirmed from both sides. This results in much cheaper rates getting you more Bitcoin for your money, again Localbitcoins is a site I have personally used alot. You can also buy in cash if you really need to, although be aware this will involve meeting a person locally and purchasing which I would be very careful of doing

You can check out LocalBitcoins here

Coinmama: Buy Bitcoins with Credit Card


Coinmama is somewhere that revolves their whole business around purchasing BTC with debit and cards, the are well respected and have been around for awhile now. It really is one of the easiest right up there with Coinbase, the fee's may be slightly higher but that's because like Coinbase the Bitcoin your receive is instant. They now also offer ETH!

Checkout CoinMama Here


Cex.io is another huge exchange that has been around a long time, initially creating their name by host Ghash mining pool they moved away from that and focused on buying and selling Bitcoins and Ethereum. I personally have not used CEX as much as coinbase but like coinbase they are instant and you can buy with credit or debit card. I would not use any other companies other than these two when buying instant Bitcoin with your debit or credit card

You can check out CEX.io here

Coinbase Commerce Pay, To Rival Paypal?


Well this is interesting, Coinbase, THE biggest Bitcoin crypto broker and exchange within the crypto world has launched Coinbase Commerce to merchants. It gives you the option to pay in the four cryptos that Coinbase currently support, these being Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum and Bcash.

Currently Bitpay is the biggest company in the world of payment systems but if I was them I would be very very worried about Coinbase stepping into my territory. My only thoughts are how quick is the payment time, especially for Bitcoin if we get a huge backlog of transactions. Then again thinking as I right that we know that Coinbase is adopting Segwit which should massively help with transaction times within the next few weeks.

Do you have any experience using Coinbase Commerce? Can you provide feedback?

US Senate Meets To Discuss Crypto


It was quite a nervous day, a meeting by the US Senate happened today and believe it or not it was not doom and gloom, if anything it was actually pretty good news. As you can see from the video above which a lot of people classed as one of the more important parts of the meeting there was some real thought put behind what blockchain technology could really be used for

Some of the key points so far

Raiblocks XRB Rebrands to Nano


Everyone who follows this blog by now knows my absolute love for XRB Raiblocks, well now officially it has been confirmed that it will be rebranding to NANO. This is fantastic news for Nano and now we have seen the price rebound to where it was before all the Bit grail drama that happened yesterday. For us early investors its huge news and the huge things we all knew were coming in 2018 are slowly starting to appear and happen

Also in the news comes probably the best of of the rebrand, they are releasing their own exchange. This is huge news, instant transfers no fees to move Nano I cannot wait

Official announcement here

Slowly Getting More Mainstream?


Been a bit quiet recently folks but that is purely down to me, been silly crazy with work and as you know I run this blog + reddit + Facebook + my family all on my own! Anyway something that caught my eye this morning, we all talk of Bitcoin going more mainstream and getting a wider adoption which towards the end of 2017 we saw a hell of alot of people talking about it. This morning I see that CNBC news features not just Bitcoin but shows high performers in crypto including XRB, Stellar, NEO, XRP and ETH

It may not seem like much to alot for you but trust me this is a big deal, it has taken years for Bitcoin to get decent TV time, but now we are seeing alternate coins getting praise on the news as well. For me 2018 is going to be a big year for us crypto nerds especially when we see more good news like Robinhood app is bringing crypto to their platform. This will open the door to so so many new people and hopefully cause Coinbase to drive down their fee's

Neon Wallet Now Adds Tokens


I've been in Neo for a long long time, from when it was Antshares in fact and now and only now I feel the currency is starting to get some recognition it deserves. This week we have seen a massive update on the Neon Wallet with it now showing token balance and being able to participate in token sales straight from the wallet.

This is really big for Neo that we are now seeing tokens, as for me tokens is what made Ethereum explode. My question is could Neo get bigger than Ethereum, in my eyes its pretty much a better alternative to Ethereum especially at the moment with all the transactions fees being so high. I mean who doesn't like getting free money and claiming GAS from your Neo wallet

You can download the Neon Wallet here https://github.com/CityOfZion/neon-wallet/releases

Bitcoin Unconfirmed TX's Clearing Overnight?


Bitcoin price is still a little fragile and is hovering between 10k and 12k but we have some really surprising and good news which kind of just appeared overnight. The amount of unconfirmed transactions drastically dropped overnight with unconfirmed TX's with low fees even clearing. We even saw the biggest block mined so far Size: 2.1MB, Weight: 3993048 which goes to show Segwit is working and making changes to the network.

We have seen many rumours around Twitter and Reddit looking for explanation, some saying it may be Segwit adoption from Coinbase kicking in and other noticing that the overall mining speed increased 20% overnight. Truly we will not know but one thing we do know is Segwit is working, my hunch might be with the Lightning network moving along a lot faster than expected are miners turning to Segwit in hope they keep making decent returns

Also I bet those #bcash supporters are getting slightly worried

Sometimes You Have To Zoom Out


I posted this on our Facebook page and I decided I am posting it into the blog as well as I believe it is really important to look at the bigger picture. People are freaking out with crypto prices but believe me when I say this is completely normal for this time of year. If you look at the image above you will see every January we see a huge dip/correction and then we are back to normal. I believe this year it is a lot worse mainly due to all the futures contracts that are open and ready to expire on 17th January, once this finishes we should recover

Have faith, never panic sell

VeChain Partners With Chinese Government


When looking at crypto news does not really get much bigger than this, VeChain has already been spreading like wild fire round the crypto world and lucky for me I bought a little a while back. Today huge news comes as VeChain is officially working with the China central government and the China National Tobacco Corporation. This is absolutely amazing news from still a relatively small crypto, it will be used as a proof of origin for tobacco to counter fakes being made. Simply you should be able in China to look up your Tobacco on the blockchain to make sure its legit and not a fake pack. When China's tobacco industry accounts for 30% of the worlds that kinda puts into perspective how big this news is

Probably Best Not To Check Your Blockfolio This Morning


Woken up this morning to an absolute bloodbath not only in BTC but across the crypto market. The reason I can find is rumours that South Korea was ready to ban all crypto exchanges much like the China FUD all over again. Although this time it is not true

South Korea are looking to ban unregulated exchanges and exchanges that aren't compliant. So that is definitely not banning all exchanges is it

Wish I had more funds not tied up in crypto at the moment as all you need to do is treat today as a crypto sale and fill your pockets with the coin of your choice. Even if its BTC as that's at a nice price, I'd make the most of it because I don't think this will last long

As always if you want to sign up to an exchange to buy some crypto here KuCoin and Binance are simply the best two at the moment for choice of crypto. Here are my referral links, sign up through these to help support the page

UpCoin Exchange Offering $500 Free On Sign Up


In the past I have managed to post quite a few free airdrops that have made us some quick money, but all of a sudden it was like everyone wanted to do airdrops and what came with that was lots of scams. Now I don't post anywhere near what I used to but today I came across another good one

UpCoin is a new exchange that is currently in development and they are looking for new users to sign up, when a new user signs up they receive $500 FREE to use to cover all exchange fee's once the exchange is up and running. This is a massive amount of money and perfect if you are looking to avoid possible exchange fee's in the future

All you need to do is Sign Up HERE and create an account



As always with these airdrops there is always the slight piece of doubt it could turn out to be a load of nothing, but if it does we lose nothing. Personally I have already signed up and it shows the $500 in my account. I recommend as always with airdrops use a different email and a completely different password you have not used for anything else

Earn Crypto Just From Holding KuCoins

The title of this post sounds way to easy but I assure you it really is that easy. New exchange Kucoin has been making waves within the exchange world, brining a fresh new look with lots and lots of input from its users. It is moving forward rapidly in the market gaining more and more popularity by the day and that is helped by their innovative system Kucoins and KuCoin shares.

Q. What is the Kucoin Bonus?

A. The Kucoin bonus is granted by holding Kucoin Shares (KCS) on the Exchange. You will not get the bonus if your KCS are held on an external wallet. This bonus is distributed at 00:00 UTC+8 daily over a period of several hours and is calculated by the amount of Kucoin Shares you hold. You will be credited with a split of 50% of the total trading fees charged by the Exchange. You can calculate your bonus at Kucoinshares.com. This bonus will be adjusted when the volume grows, however will never be reduced below 15%. It will stay at 50% for a minimum of 6 months. (Ending March 2018)


I have put some of my BTC over there and converted it to see what the income is like until March anyway as it sounds so promising as if some of the coins they list skyrocket in price you will make even more money almost like a passive income. Also if the exchanges total volume goes up, so does your profits
