Changelly vs ShapeShift

Instant exchange is a popular way to trade cryptocurrencies quickly and efficiently. In our next few articles, we will try to compare and evaluate the most popular exchangers at the moment.
Today, Changelly and ShapeShift are still pretty popular services for these purposes. However, before using this or that exchanger, each cryptocurrency trader needs to weigh all the pros and cons.
In this comparative review, we compare Changelly ShapeShift and go through some of their key similarities and differences, according to the safety criteria, the commission, options for different cryptocurrencies and the user interface.
User interface
First, let's look at a couple of Changelly and ShapeShift in terms of user interface. This is the first impression that a trader who uses an exchanger gets.
Changelly interface is one of the most straightforward and easy-to-use interfaces among all cryptocurrency exchangers. For example, on Changelly you do not need to go to a new page to look at the trading options and calculate the exchange rate: all this information is at the top of the main page. Naturally, before you participate in the auction you will have to register. In addition, for their services, Changelly can sometimes take a significant commission.
Previously, ShapeShift exchanger was known as an exchanger without accounts. However, in September 2018, the developers decided to change the model of the platform to give users additional protection and reduce friction. Now, to trade on ShapeShift, you will have to register.
Compared to Changelly, for beginners, ShapeShift may seems more complicated exchanger. On its main page, a pop-up window "account required to participate in the auction" appears, which also describes all the advantages. After closing this window, you will find yourself on the statistics page, where you can see a variety of indicators. For example, you can look at recent transactions. Also on the homepage there is a 24-hour statistics of the number of transactions and BTC volume, the average order processing time and the most popular trading pairs.
Security
On its website Changelly stores no user funds. Instead, the exchanger sends funds directly to your wallet. It makes Changelly, not the custodian exchanger, which is usually safer than a conventional exchange, which holds users' funds. In addition, Changelly uses two-factor authentication (2FA).
In May 2017, one of Changelly's supporting accounts was hacked. Some users received the following message: "All customers who make an exchange from Bitcoin to another currency must manually transfer to the specified Bitcoin address:...". However, Changelly support immediately blocked this account.
ShapeShift, in turn, once used hot wallets on its website. It is unclear whether they can be used now, but users still remember the past vulnerability of the platform. In April 2016, ShapeShift exchanger was hacked and lost $200,000. Here's a comment from CEO Eric Voorhees himself: "the server Infrastructure was compromised and was under serious threat. We decided to quickly wipe out this infrastructure and build a completely new and secure environment." It is important to note that in the course of this, no customer has lost their money. The only funds lost belonged to the company itself. ShapeShift representatives called their own employee responsible for the incident.
Commissions
ShapeShift has quite a good commission for an instant exchanger. For each transaction, they take only a commission for mining. Some argue that this commission is somewhat overstated compared to the standard commission on mining, on which the platform earns. Anyway, for one transaction you will pay no more than 0.5 %.
ShapeShift does not return funds after failed transactions if the amount of lost assets is less than the mining commission. If you sent the cryptocurrency to the wrong address (for example, to GNT instead of ETH address), the platform will charge you a refund fee in the equivalent of 50 euros at the current rate.
As in ShapeShift, Changelly’s commission is approximately 0.5 %. However, many Changelly users notice that the exchanger has "hidden fees", but basically it isn’t, it is a result of high rate volatility of cryptocurrencies. For example, when you enter your existing funds (for example, USD), the amount transferred to another currency (for example, BTC) may differ from the current rate. And sometimes the resulting amount is the same as specified on the exchange. This should be taken into account when trading if you do not want to lose a small part of your funds. Although you should do this all the time in all exchangers.
The choice of currencies
Of course, the main advantage of both ShapeShift and Changelly is the variety of trading pairs. For example, you can easily exchange Qtum to Aragon directly instead of first changing Qtum to Bitcoin and then Bitcoin to Aragon, as is required on most other platforms.
If we talk about the most obvious differences between Changelly and ShapeShift, it is worth considering the availability of exchange to the ordinary money. In the exchanger ShapeShift there is not a single fiat currency. Instead, ShapeShift collaborates with Simplex to provide its users with this capability. However, even considering this partnership, your choice is limited to BTC-USD and BTC-EUR trading pairs.
About 33 cryptocurrencies are available on ShapeShift. There are several other cryptocurrencies marked as "temporarily unavailable", which may limit the use of the platform for some users. On the other hand, Changelly offers a large selection of trading crypto pairs (over 90) for USD and EUR. Also, this exchanger allows the use of debit and credit cards (Visa or Mastercard).
Geographic and transaction limits
ShapeShift and Changelly doesn’t have any restrictions at the place of stay. Users from all over the world are free to use both projects. This is good news, especially given the fact that now many exchanges can not boast of such accessibility.
If you are going to change large amounts, you need to take into account that each exchanger has its own limitations. ShapeShift has a relatively low transaction limit of $10,000 for level 1 users. By participating in the exchange, you can extend these limits. As of November 2018, higher levels (2-5) are not available to those who are not members of the community. The maximum limits of Changelly are from $ 50 to $ 10 000 for the first transaction, up to $ 20 000 per day and up to $ 50 000 per month.
Conclusion
So which exchanger, after all, is better? Having studied all these criteria, we can say that Changelly is slightly ahead of ShapeShift in its parameters. However, if the commission is extremely important for you, it is possible that ShapeShift will suit you more. It is also important to note that ShapeShift added a membership program in September 2018. As for Changelly, the exchanger continues to announce new partnership agreements with companies in the blockchain and crypto field. Further actions such as integration with various payment applications will help Changelly expand its user base and affect the future mass distribution of the platform.

What is EOS?

EOS is a community-driven distributed blockchain, that allows the development and execution of industrial-scale decentralized applications (dApps). Therefore, EOS intention is to become a blockchain dApp platform that can securely and smoothly scale to thousands of transactions per second, all while providing an accessible experience to app developers, entrepreneurs, and users. They aim to provide a complete operating system for decentralized applications by providing services like user authentication, cloud storage, and server hosting.
The EOS.IO open-source code was developed and it is currently updated by Block.One. Block.One is based in the Cayman Island and it is managed by Brendan Blumer (CEO), Daniel Larimer (CTO) and Andrew Bliss (CFO).

How is EOS different?

EOS is the first Blockchain that focuses on building a dApps platform by using the delegated proof-of-stake consensus mechanism. With dPoS, EOS manage to provide a public blockchain with some particular features, such as Scalability, Flexibility, Usability and Governance.

WHAT IS AN EOS ACCOUNT?

From EOS Beginners: Anatomy of an EOS Account
An EOS account is a readable name that is stored on the EOS blockchain and connected to your “keys”. An EOS account is required for performing actions on the EOS platform, such as sending/receiving tokens, voting, and staking.
Each account is linked to a public key, and this public key is in turn linked to a private key. A private key can be used to generate an associated public key, but not vice versa. (A private key and its associated public key make up a key pair)
These keys ensure that only you can access and perform actions with your account. Your public key is visible by everyone using the network. Your private key, however, will never be shown. You must store your private keys in a safe location as they should not be shared with anyone (unless you want your EOS to be stolen)!
TLDR: EOS Accounts are controlled by key pairs and store EOS tokens in the Blockchain. Wallets store key pairs that are used to sign transactions.

GET FREE EOS ACCOUNTS

From EOS Onboarding: Free Accounts
Unlike other chains in the space, EOSIO accounts do not typically charge a transfer fee for sending tokens or providing actions on the blockchain. Where Bitcoin and Ethereum mine blocks and charge a fee, EOS provides feeless transactions to users based on CPU, NET, and RAM resources.
Although traditionally those wanting to create EOS accounts in particular have needed to ‘pay a fee’ to get into the system, in reality this fee is nothing more than a basic stake of CPU and NET resources. In theory this provides free transactions on the network, the number of transactions that any user gets in a 24 hour window is determined by the amount of stake especially in CPU that any given account maintains.
This guide then provides a brief overview of the account creation process of some of those account types that allow for easy no friction EOS mainnet onboarding and in most cases, the provision of more than enough resources to be able to utilize the network without having to go through the process of buying, transferring, and staking or renting resources ensuring your account remains operational.

WHAT IS REX AND HOW TO USE IT FOR RESOURCES

What is REX?
REX (Resource Exchange) is a resource market that can meet the demand, where the EOS token holders can lease out tokens in return for “rent”, and the Dapps can lease resources they need with less cost.
For EOS holders:Earn an income via put your spare EOS tokens in REX instead of just keep it on your EOS account.
For EOS Dapps:Lease as much resources as you need at a decent price instead of stake EOS for resources in 1:1 ratio.
Source: TokenPocket
Through REX you can pay a small amount of EOS to receive a much larger amount in CPU or NET for a whole month. Today (August 20, 2020), paying 1 EOS on REX guarantees you 7,500 EOS in CPU for 30 days.
You can easily use REX via Anchor Wallet, importing your EOS Account and with a few simple clicks. Learn how to use REX with Anchor

DECENTRALIZED FINANCE (DEFI) ON EOS

Decentralized Finance (DeFi) is the combination of traditional financial instruments with decentralized blockchain technology. Currently DeFi is the fastest growing sector in blockchain, which allows greater inclusion within the financial system even for those who previously could not participate in the global economy. Indeed, to use DeFi products is enough just a smartphone, and the so-called "unbanked", ca now participate without any restrictions.

[Free] [Guide] Kryptex BTC Miner! Best miner for beginners!

Kryptex is a perfect, lightweight bitcoin miner that I have used on and off over the past year now. I have only used it about a month in time total, accumulating over $30, and you can expect at least $30-$70 per month with a decent enough rig (https://i.imgur.com/LruixfG.png first and only withdraw of btc and my current balancehttps://i.imgur.com/qV8RWoX.png), last I had was $9 and I only remember running it for a couple days before turning it off and forgetting about it). I personally believe this is the best mining software for beginners or even novices, with such an easy setup that only takes minutes. Not to mention they have both a lite mode and and full mode depending on how hard you want your computer to run, or if you want to run the app in the background with games or videos. I have found it doesn't affect my system much if at all, and my specs are 16gb RAM, Ryzen 5 1600 and a 1060 6GB.
You're first brought into a benchmark after logging into your account (there is a warning about antiviruses producing false positives. https://i.imgur.com/6DEqB4l.png) but down below you can find an antivirus link with the full scan of the .exe. During the benchmark the program doesn't use much computer power, only about 10% cpu, <1000mb of ram and <5% GPU. Once the benchmark is you are free to check the app and see what it has to offer!
In the settings you're first greeted with an option for Starting with Windows and an option to enable or disable the use of the CPU. After that you are given a drop down that lets you choose the mode Kyrptex will run when on in the background, I recommend Lite Mode as it will be the best for your pc during use and you can leave the heavier loads for when your pc is sleeping or inactive. With only litemode you could expect anywhere from $5-$15 depending on your rig and load, I usually sit at about $7-$13 per month. You also have an advanced settings option giving you the option to disable/enable your cpus or gpus and which algorithms you'd like to use. From Dagger Hashimoto #1 & #2, CryptoNight, Cuckoo Cycle, X16R and their recently added Equihash 150, 5.
As a beginner miner, and someone who has tried only a few programs, my word of course isnt the best, but out of the select miners I've tried, I truly believe this is the best miner program, especially for beginners who are trying to test the waters out.
You can download Kryptex at https://www.kryptex.org/?ref=4e09fec3 (referral link) or https://www.kryptex.org/ (non-referral)
Mining Consoles and Program Interface: https://i.imgur.com/ibWpG1x.pngVirusTotal: https://www.virustotal.com/gui/file/4f75a40104c19c19f8921332f8cb125e89f6b4890e473ad5252889d6b07b0b14/detection It is flagged by 4 software, but I believe these to be false positives, even one of them saying it's detected due to it being a coin miner.

such beginner shibe thread wow how to get coin

 how to shibecoin v rich in minutes much instruct so simple any doge can do 

START HERE

UPDATE 1/21/14: I'm not updating this guide anymore. Most of the steps should still work though. See the wiki or check the sidebar for updated instructions.
Before you do anything else, you need to get a wallet. Until there's a secure online wallet, this means you need to download the dogecoin client.
Now open the client you just downloaded. You'll be given a default address automatically, and it should connect to peers and start downloading the dogechain (aka blockchain in formal speak). You'll know because there will be a progress bar at the bottom and at the lower right there should be a signal strength icon (TODO: add screenshots).
If you've waited 2 or 3 minutes and nothing is happening, copy this:
maxconnections=100 addnode=95.85.29.144 addnode=162.243.113.110 addnode=146.185.181.114 addnode=188.165.19.28 addnode=166.78.155.36 addnode=doge.scryptpools.com addnode=doge.netcodepool.org addnode=doge.pool.webxass.de addnode=doge.cryptopool.it addnode=pool.testserverino.de addnode=doge.luckyminers.com addnode=doge.cryptovalley.com addnode=miner.coinedup.comdoge addnode=doge.cryptoculture.net addnode=dogepool.pw addnode=doge.gentoomen.org addnode=doge.cryptominer.net addnode=67.205.20.10 addnode=162.243.113.110 addnode=78.46.57.132 
And paste it into a new text file called dogecoin.conf, which you then place into the dogecoin app directory.
Now restart your qt client and the blockchain should start downloading in about 1-2 minutes.
Once it finished downloading, you're ready to send and receive Dogecoins!

GETTING COINS

Decide how you want to get Dogecoin. Your options are:
I'll go into detail about each of these. I'm currently writing this out. I'll make edits as I add sections. Suggestions are welcome.

MINING

Mining is how new dogecoins are created. If you're new to crypto currencies, read this. To mine (also called "digging"), a computer with a decent GPU (graphics card) is recommended. You can also mine with your CPU, but it's not as efficient.

GPU MINING

These instructions cover only Windows for now. To mine, you'll need to figure out what GPU you have. It'll be either AMD/ATI or Nvidia. The setup for both is approximately the same.

Step One: Choose a pool

There's a list of pools on the wiki. For now it doesn't really matter which one you choose. You can easily switch later.
NOTE: You can mine in two ways. Solo mining is where you mine by yourself. When you find a block you get all the reward. Pool mining is when you team up with other miners to work on the same block together. This makes it more likely that you'll find a block, but you won't get all of it, you'll have to split it up with others according to your share of the work. Pool mining is recommended because it gives you frequent payouts, because you find more blocks. The larger the pool you join, the more frequent the payouts, but the smaller the reward you get.
Over a long period of time the difference between pool and solo mining goes away, but if you solo mine it might be months before you get any coins.

Step two: Set up pool account

The pool you chose should have a getting started page. Read it and follow the instructions. Instructions vary but the general idea is:
When you're done with this, you'll need to know:

Step three: Download mining software

For best performance you'll need the right mining software.
Unzip the download anywhere you want.

Step four: Set up miner

Create a text file in the same folder as your miner application. Inside, put the command you'll be running (remove brackets).
For AMD it's cgminer.exe --scrypt -o stratum+tcp://: -u -p
For Nvidia it's cudaminer.exe -o stratum+tcp://: -O :
Substitute the right stuff in for the placeholders. Then on the next line of the text file type pause. This will let you see any errors that you get. Then save the file with any name you want, as long as the file extension is .bat. For example mine_serverName.bat.

Step five: Launch your miner

Just open the .bat file and a command line window should pop up, letting you know that the miner is starting. Once it starts, it should print out your hash rate.
If you now go to the pool website, the dashboard should start showing your hashrate. At first it'll be lower than what it says in the miner, but that's because the dashboard is taking a 5 minute average. It'll catch up soon enough.
NOTE: A normal hashrate is between 50 Kh/s up to even 1 Mh/s depending on your GPU.

You're now mining Dogecoins

That's it, nothing more to it.

CPU MINING

CPU mining isn't really recommended, because you'll be spending a lot on more on power than you'd make from mining Dogecoin. You could better spend that money on buying Dogecoin by trading. But if you have free electricity and want to try it out, check out this informative forum post.

Trading

Trading has been difficult so far, but Dogecoin just got added to a few new exchanges. If you don't have a giant mining rig, this is probably the best way to get 100k or more dogecoins at the moment. I'll write up a more complete guide, but for now check out these sites:

Faucets

Faucets are sites that give out free coins. Usually a site will give out somewhere between 1 and 100 Dogecoin. Every site has its own time limits, but usually you can only receive coins once every few hours, or in some cases, days. It's a great way to get started. All you do is copy your address from the receive section of your wallet and enter it on some faucet sites. Check out /dogecoinfaucets for more. If you go to each site on there you might end up with a couple hundred Dogecoin!

Begging

This method is pretty straightforward. Post your receiving address, and ask for some coins. Such poor shibe. The only catch is, don't do it here! Please go to /dogecoinbeg.

Tips

At the moment there are two tip bots:
Other redditors can give you Dogecoin by summoning the tip bot, something like this:
+dogetipbot 5 doge
This might happen if you make a good post, or someone just wants to give out some coins. Once you receive a tip you have to accept it in a few days or else it'll get returned. Do this by following the instructions on the message you receive in your inbox. You reply to the bot with "+accept". Commands go in the message body. Once you do that, the bot will create a tipping address for you, and you can use the links in the message you receive to see your info, withdraw coins to your dogecoin-qt wallet, see your history, and a bunch of other stuff.
As a bonus, so_doge_tip has a feature where you can get some Dogecoins to start with in exchange for how much karma you have. To do this, send the message "+redeem DOGE" to so_doge_tip. You'll need to create a tipping account if you don't have one.
If you want to create a tipping account without ever being tipped first, message either of the bots with "+register" and an address will be created for you.

I had like 3 friends ask me how to build a PC in the past week so I made this to help them.

(Reddit Edit: Help my improve the document with productive constructive comments on what I got wrong or messed up! Im only human lol
Also a lot of this is supposed to be kinda humorous. I didn't think I had to say that but, hey, its the internet.
I appreciate the positive and productive comments! )
Beginners basic guide to building your own PC as of early 2018
(EDIT: Sorry for being a MSI/Corsair Fanboy)
Heres a collection of thoughts to consider when building your own personal PC
As always Id personally use PCPartPicker.com to configure your parts and for further thoughts on compatibility.
First off building a computer is 100% based around what you plan to use the computer for.
Here are a few uses and generic ideas of what to go for. Audio Editing: Lots of small tasks that need to be completed quickly without lag. - Fast Processor( >4GHZ) - Fast RAM (MHZ) -At least 16 gigs! - Fast Storage, SSD manditorily - M.2 or PCI for best performance. - Shitty Graphics card, graphics card there only to keep the cpu from doing other tasks when working. - Can be a few generations or years old. - Many screens for lots of plug in windows to be open Video Editing: Lots of large to render and files to read. - Multi core processor the more the merrier - SSD for fast read/write of large video files. - Insane graphics card, AMD graphics cards are debatibly better but the nvidia Quadro series are specific for video rendering. Gaming: No more than 4 cores intense graphics card - 92% of games are not coded for more than 4 cores so why spend the extra money for it. - SSD for quick load screens - Nvidia cards, 10 series, the higher the number the better. Titan cards for MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE! Coding: quick processor for lots of small tasks. Ergonomic peripherials? - Dear god please dont use a mechanical keyboard so that your coworkers dont kill you. Home office: Everything can be a few gens behind so you can get the best power per dollar spent. - Sorry that Gateway doesnt exist anymore. I guess try Dell... 
Parts (Expensive Legos)
CPU (tells things to go places and outputs data) Basically three main routes to go for: Intel, AMD, or ASIC. Intel - Gaming, Data center, Hackintosh Pros: Cooler, Faster speed (GHZ), short small tasks faster Cons: $$$$, less cores AMD - Gaming, Personal Computing, Large task processing Pros: Lots of cores, better price per performance, faster processing of large tasks Cons: Hot chips, large chips?, compatibility issues with MacOS. ASIC - "Application-specific integrated circuit" Pros: Does the task that they are made to do insanely efficently, great for mining. Cons: Literally does nothing else. Holy hell these are expensive, very hot (fans will get loud) CPU Cooler (Im a big fan) Most come with an in box cooler that are ok but please buy aftermarket. In Box - the free shitty cooler that comes with the processor. Pros: Free. Cons: Ugly, makes chip run hot, hard to clean Air cooler - oldest type of cooler but new designs are highly efficent. Pros: Only cooler that has the possibility of being 100% quiet, most likely cheaper Cons: large, if cooler isnt large enough for the chips thermal output the fans will be loud. Liquid - Custom pipes are beautiful, AIO is easy to install and offers similare performance. Pros: Looks cool, great temperatures, "quiet" Cons: Water pump has possibility of being loud, possible spills Phase Change - uses the technology of refridgerators to cool the chip Pros: Can overclock until the chip breaks. (whats colder than cold? ICE COLD!) Cons: Loud (compressor noise), Large pipes, just why.... Motherboard (the convienacnce store of computer parts) Really just about what type of I/O you want. - MAKE SURE FORM FACTOR FITS YOUR CASE! (or vice versa) - Look for PCI lanes for expansion. - How many graphic cards do you have? - PCI based interfaces? - PCI SSD? - PCI DAC? - PCI WIFI? - USbs? Network? Audio? - How many lanes of RAM? - DOES IT FIT YOUR PROCESSOR!?! (really tho) - M.2? - How many sata interaces? Good Brands: MSI, ASUS, Gigabyte Bad Brands: AS(s)Rock, Dell Memory (Dory) - The more the merrier - No less than 8gb for a functional windows machine (16 gb to never have a problem) - Use all the lanes your computer has to offer! the more lanes to access the faster the data can travel! -Imagine drinking a milkshake. If the straw is wider you can drink more of the milkshake than a skinny straw. - Faster MHZ for faster data access but give minimal performance differances - Please get ram with heat spreadders unles youre building a server with high airflow. - Make sure the type (DDR3 or DDR4) of RAM matches what your processomotherboard call for. Good Brands: Corsair, G.Skill, Ballistix Storage (Grandpa that remembers everythign about how things used to be but takes forever to learn a new tasK) Speed or massive storage? slower is cheaper. Golden ratio of speed/storage/price is 250-500 gb SSD and a 1+ tb disk drive. *Max speeds listed are for a single drive not RAID* Hard Disk Drives (HDD) - Cheapest and slowest - read/write speeds of < 0.5gb/s - 7200+ RPM or GTFO - Higher Speed drives can access data faster. - Do not move while powered up. physical parts will break. - Larger Cahche = faster Read/Write Speeds Pros: Cheap, Holds massive amounts of data Cons: Slower than molasses in a frezer Reputible Brands: Seagate, WD Solid State Drives (SSD) - necessity for quick boots and fast load screens (can only be re-written to so many times) - SATA based (2.5 inch)- Read/Write speeds capped @ 6 gb/s Pros: Most economical, form factor fits with old computers, Cons: "Slow" compared to other ssd's (but stil 12 times faster than a HDD) - M.2 based - Read/Write speeds capped @ 10 gb/s Pros: Size of a sick of gum! High End but not too expensive to be out of reach. Cons: Expensive for any size over 500 gb - PCI based - Read/Write speeds capped @ 20 gb/s for PCI3, x4 Pros: HOLY BANDWIDTH BATMAN! Faster than that little creepy ghost thats always in the corner of you eye Cons: You might have to take out a loan to buy one. *takes up a x4 PCI Lane* Reputible Brands: Samsung! Corsair, Plextor, Intel, Kingston, Crucial Video Card (that one kid that has thick glasses and is really good at math) - A regular old PCI card that handles all of the video rendering and output for your computer. - ASIC PCI cards. - The PCBs and chips are patented by two main companies but the differances come from line up and varying manufacturer cooling devices. - The more memory the better -NVIDIA (Team Green) Great for gaming, has specific card series for intensive rendering. Lazy driver updates. - Gaming - 900 series - Cheap - Low performance - Can play any video game made befrore 2010 on max settings - 1000 (ten) series - Expensive (thanks bitcoin miners...) - Great for VR! - Video Rendering -Quadro Series - Gaming and Rendering - Titan X - Maxwell based chip same as 900 series cards - Titan XP - Pascal based chip same as 10 series cards -AMD (Team Red) Underdog does the same thing but slighly worse and cheaper. (except video rendering) - Gaming - RX 400 series - Cheap - Hot - RX 500 series - Cheap - Ok at VR and deacent gaming frame rates. - Not bad but not particularly great either. - Video Rendering - Fire Pro series - Gaming and Rendering - Vega series -Good luck finding one to buy lmao Case (Fancy clothing for your parts!) - Similar to human clothing you want it to do a few main things really well with compromises for each extreme. - Durability - Steel - Incredibly durable - Creates Farady cage for components - Heavy af - Magnets, just magnets.... - Rust over time - Aluminium - Light - East to bend for modding or "physical maintenance" - Less likely to rust - Huzzah for Farady cages! - Plastic - Just dont - no electrical Ground - no faraday cage - Light AF! - Breath (Airflow) - positive internal airflow! - larger fans push the same amount of air with less speed/noise - Looks - Window? - RGB - Cool Paint? - Fit all your parts - graphics card length/ clearacne - support for liquid cooling raiators? - How many spots for HDD/SSDs - Motherboard format - Cable management! Power Supply (FIGHT MILK) - Rule of thumb: BUy Powersupply that outputs 1.5 times the wattage that you need. - You can walk further than you can you can run. - The PSU can casually output 50-75% power for much longer than at 90-100% (without failure) - If you never demand enough wattage for it to get hot the fan doesnt have to turn on therefore making it quieter. - Modular means you can remove/replace the cables from the PSU. Reputible Brands: Corsair, EVGA Optical Drive (motorized cup holder) - You can download most things today so I'd suggest against it unless you really NEED to watch/write DVD's/CD's Operating System (software that makes everything work) Windows (Always Updates) - Compatible with just about everything - Easy to learn to code on! - POS inital browser - Likely to get virus's Linux (Penguins are cute) - Unique - takes less resources to run - Barebones - Incredibly personalizable! - Compatibility issues with just about everything MacOS (Linux but more annoying) - It is legal! - Great for art and your grandma that doenst know how to use computers! - User friendly - Compatibility issues with various hardware - Confusing/Limiting coding structure Peripherials (cables everywhere!) - Keyboard (higer Polling rate is better) - Mechanical (key is pressed at an exact stroke length every time - Mouse (Higher Polling rate is better) - more buttons = better? - DPI (Dots Per Inch) - In theory, if a mouse has 1600 DPI, then, if you move your mouse one inch (2.54 cm), the mouse cursor will move 1600 pixels - Higher DPI the faster your cursor is able to be moved. - Monitor - In theory the human eye cant see faster than 60 frames per second. - Keep in mind Pixel ratio! - 4k screen that is 22inches will have more pixels in a square inch than a 4k screen that is 28 inches. - Interface? - DVI (Analog) - thumbscrews..... - can do two monitors with one port! - support for 4k - VGA (Analog) - thumbscrews... - max resolution is 1440p - Display Port (digital) - nice button clip - supports 4k - HDMI (Digital) - 1.2 or higer supports 4k - DAC/Speakers/Headphones - Dont even get me started - Microphone - Dont get me started PT.2 Other (other) - UPS (uninterruptible power supply) Just a battery that allows your computer to have some time if the power ever goes out so that you have time to save your work. - Cable Organization materials! - Zipties - velcro - LED LIGHTING! - Manditory - Extra/Better fans - More pressure, less woosh - IFIXIT Pro Tech Toolkit - becasue who buys just one torx wrench. - Cute kitten mousepad - Yes, it has to be a cat. Dont argue 
This is a very general entry into building computers and what you should buy/look for. If you have any questions/comments send me an e-mail!

Changelly vs ShapeShift

Instant exchange is a popular way to trade cryptocurrencies quickly and efficiently. In our next few articles, we will try to compare and evaluate the most popular exchangers at the moment.
Today, Changelly and ShapeShift are still pretty popular services for these purposes. However, before using this or that exchanger, each cryptocurrency trader needs to weigh all the pros and cons.
In this comparative review, we compare Changelly ShapeShift and go through some of their key similarities and differences, according to the safety criteria, the commission, options for different cryptocurrencies and the user interface.
User interface
First, let's look at a couple of Changelly and ShapeShift in terms of user interface. This is the first impression that a trader who uses an exchanger gets.
Changelly interface is one of the most straightforward and easy-to-use interfaces among all cryptocurrency exchangers. For example, on Changelly you do not need to go to a new page to look at the trading options and calculate the exchange rate: all this information is at the top of the main page. Naturally, before you participate in the auction you will have to register. In addition, for their services, Changelly can sometimes take a significant commission.
Previously, ShapeShift exchanger was known as an exchanger without accounts. However, in September 2018, the developers decided to change the model of the platform to give users additional protection and reduce friction. Now, to trade on ShapeShift, you will have to register.
Compared to Changelly, for beginners, ShapeShift may seems more complicated exchanger. On its main page, a pop-up window "account required to participate in the auction" appears, which also describes all the advantages. After closing this window, you will find yourself on the statistics page, where you can see a variety of indicators. For example, you can look at recent transactions. Also on the homepage there is a 24-hour statistics of the number of transactions and BTC volume, the average order processing time and the most popular trading pairs.
Security
On its website Changelly stores no user funds. Instead, the exchanger sends funds directly to your wallet. It makes Changelly, not the custodian exchanger, which is usually safer than a conventional exchange, which holds users' funds. In addition, Changelly uses two-factor authentication (2FA).
In May 2017, one of Changelly's supporting accounts was hacked. Some users received the following message: "All customers who make an exchange from Bitcoin to another currency must manually transfer to the specified Bitcoin address:...". However, Changelly support immediately blocked this account.
ShapeShift, in turn, once used hot wallets on its website. It is unclear whether they can be used now, but users still remember the past vulnerability of the platform. In April 2016, ShapeShift exchanger was hacked and lost $200,000. Here's a comment from CEO Eric Voorhees himself: "the server Infrastructure was compromised and was under serious threat. We decided to quickly wipe out this infrastructure and build a completely new and secure environment." It is important to note that in the course of this, no customer has lost their money. The only funds lost belonged to the company itself. ShapeShift representatives called their own employee responsible for the incident.
Commissions
ShapeShift has quite a good commission for an instant exchanger. For each transaction, they take only a commission for mining. Some argue that this commission is somewhat overstated compared to the standard commission on mining, on which the platform earns. Anyway, for one transaction you will pay no more than 0.5 %.
ShapeShift does not return funds after failed transactions if the amount of lost assets is less than the mining commission. If you sent the cryptocurrency to the wrong address (for example, to GNT instead of ETH address), the platform will charge you a refund fee in the equivalent of 50 euros at the current rate.
As in ShapeShift, Changelly’s commission is approximately 0.5 %. However, many Changelly users notice that the exchanger has "hidden fees", but basically it isn’t, it is a result of high rate volatility of cryptocurrencies. For example, when you enter your existing funds (for example, USD), the amount transferred to another currency (for example, BTC) may differ from the current rate. And sometimes the resulting amount is the same as specified on the exchange. This should be taken into account when trading if you do not want to lose a small part of your funds. Although you should do this all the time in all exchangers.
The choice of currencies
Of course, the main advantage of both ShapeShift and Changelly is the variety of trading pairs. For example, you can easily exchange Qtum to Aragon directly instead of first changing Qtum to Bitcoin and then Bitcoin to Aragon, as is required on most other platforms.
If we talk about the most obvious differences between Changelly and ShapeShift, it is worth considering the availability of exchange to the ordinary money. In the exchanger ShapeShift there is not a single fiat currency. Instead, ShapeShift collaborates with Simplex to provide its users with this capability. However, even considering this partnership, your choice is limited to BTC-USD and BTC-EUR trading pairs.
About 33 cryptocurrencies are available on ShapeShift. There are several other cryptocurrencies marked as "temporarily unavailable", which may limit the use of the platform for some users. On the other hand, Changelly offers a large selection of trading crypto pairs (over 90) for USD and EUR. Also, this exchanger allows the use of debit and credit cards (Visa or Mastercard).
Geographic and transaction limits
ShapeShift and Changelly doesn’t have any restrictions at the place of stay. Users from all over the world are free to use both projects. This is good news, especially given the fact that now many exchanges can not boast of such accessibility.
If you are going to change large amounts, you need to take into account that each exchanger has its own limitations. ShapeShift has a relatively low transaction limit of $10,000 for level 1 users. By participating in the exchange, you can extend these limits. As of November 2018, higher levels (2-5) are not available to those who are not members of the community. The maximum limits of Changelly are from $ 50 to $ 10 000 for the first transaction, up to $ 20 000 per day and up to $ 50 000 per month.
Conclusion
So which exchanger, after all, is better? Having studied all these criteria, we can say that Changelly is slightly ahead of ShapeShift in its parameters. However, if the commission is extremely important for you, it is possible that ShapeShift will suit you more. It is also important to note that ShapeShift added a membership program in September 2018. As for Changelly, the exchanger continues to announce new partnership agreements with companies in the blockchain and crypto field. Further actions such as integration with various payment applications will help Changelly expand its user base and affect the future mass distribution of the platform.

On the other hand, Changelly offers a large selection of trading crypto pairs (over 90) for USD and EUR. Also, this exchanger allows the use of debit and credit cards (Visa or Mastercard).
Geographic and transaction limits
ShapeShift and Changelly doesn’t have any restrictions at the place of stay. Users from all over the world are free to use both projects. This is good news, especially given the fact that now many exchanges can not boast of such accessibility.
If you are going to change large amounts, you need to take into account that each exchanger has its own limitations. ShapeShift has a relatively low transaction limit of $10,000 for level 1 users. By participating in the exchange, you can extend these limits. As of November 2018, higher levels (2-5) are not available to those who are not members of the community. The maximum limits of Changelly are from $ 50 to $ 10 000 for the first transaction, up to $ 20 000 per day and up to $ 50 000 per month.
Conclusion
So which exchanger, after all, is better? Having studied all these criteria, we can say that Changelly is slightly ahead of ShapeShift in its parameters. However, if the commission is extremely important for you, it is possible that ShapeShift will suit you more. It is also important to note that ShapeShift added a membership program in September 2018. As for Changelly, the exchanger continues to announce new partnership agreements with companies in the blockchain and crypto field. Further actions such as integration with various payment applications will help Changelly expand its user base and affect the future mass distribution of the platform.

Changelly vs ShapeShift

Instant exchange is a popular way to trade cryptocurrencies quickly and efficiently. In our next few articles, we will try to compare and evaluate the most popular exchangers at the moment.
Today, Changelly and ShapeShift are still pretty popular services for these purposes. However, before using this or that exchanger, each cryptocurrency trader needs to weigh all the pros and cons.
In this comparative review, we compare Changelly ShapeShift and go through some of their key similarities and differences, according to the safety criteria, the commission, options for different cryptocurrencies and the user interface.
User interface
First, let's look at a couple of Changelly and ShapeShift in terms of user interface. This is the first impression that a trader who uses an exchanger gets.
Changelly interface is one of the most straightforward and easy-to-use interfaces among all cryptocurrency exchangers. For example, on Changelly you do not need to go to a new page to look at the trading options and calculate the exchange rate: all this information is at the top of the main page. Naturally, before you participate in the auction you will have to register. In addition, for their services, Changelly can sometimes take a significant commission.
Previously, ShapeShift exchanger was known as an exchanger without accounts. However, in September 2018, the developers decided to change the model of the platform to give users additional protection and reduce friction. Now, to trade on ShapeShift, you will have to register.
Compared to Changelly, for beginners, ShapeShift may seems more complicated exchanger. On its main page, a pop-up window "account required to participate in the auction" appears, which also describes all the advantages. After closing this window, you will find yourself on the statistics page, where you can see a variety of indicators. For example, you can look at recent transactions. Also on the homepage there is a 24-hour statistics of the number of transactions and BTC volume, the average order processing time and the most popular trading pairs.
Security
On its website Changelly stores no user funds. Instead, the exchanger sends funds directly to your wallet. It makes Changelly, not the custodian exchanger, which is usually safer than a conventional exchange, which holds users' funds. In addition, Changelly uses two-factor authentication (2FA).
In May 2017, one of Changelly's supporting accounts was hacked. Some users received the following message: "All customers who make an exchange from Bitcoin to another currency must manually transfer to the specified Bitcoin address:...". However, Changelly support immediately blocked this account.
ShapeShift, in turn, once used hot wallets on its website. It is unclear whether they can be used now, but users still remember the past vulnerability of the platform. In April 2016, ShapeShift exchanger was hacked and lost $200,000. Here's a comment from CEO Eric Voorhees himself: "the server Infrastructure was compromised and was under serious threat. We decided to quickly wipe out this infrastructure and build a completely new and secure environment." It is important to note that in the course of this, no customer has lost their money. The only funds lost belonged to the company itself. ShapeShift representatives called their own employee responsible for the incident.
Commissions
ShapeShift has quite a good commission for an instant exchanger. For each transaction, they take only a commission for mining. Some argue that this commission is somewhat overstated compared to the standard commission on mining, on which the platform earns. Anyway, for one transaction you will pay no more than 0.5 %.
ShapeShift does not return funds after failed transactions if the amount of lost assets is less than the mining commission. If you sent the cryptocurrency to the wrong address (for example, to GNT instead of ETH address), the platform will charge you a refund fee in the equivalent of 50 euros at the current rate.
As in ShapeShift, Changelly’s commission is approximately 0.5 %. However, many Changelly users notice that the exchanger has "hidden fees", but basically it isn’t, it is a result of high rate volatility of cryptocurrencies. For example, when you enter your existing funds (for example, USD), the amount transferred to another currency (for example, BTC) may differ from the current rate. And sometimes the resulting amount is the same as specified on the exchange. This should be taken into account when trading if you do not want to lose a small part of your funds. Although you should do this all the time in all exchangers.
The choice of currencies
Of course, the main advantage of both ShapeShift and Changelly is the variety of trading pairs. For example, you can easily exchange Qtum to Aragon directly instead of first changing Qtum to Bitcoin and then Bitcoin to Aragon, as is required on most other platforms.
If we talk about the most obvious differences between Changelly and ShapeShift, it is worth considering the availability of exchange to the ordinary money. In the exchanger ShapeShift there is not a single fiat currency. Instead, ShapeShift collaborates with Simplex to provide its users with this capability. However, even considering this partnership, your choice is limited to BTC-USD and BTC-EUR trading pairs.
About 33 cryptocurrencies are available on ShapeShift. There are several other cryptocurrencies marked as "temporarily unavailable", which may limit the use of the platform for some users. On the other hand, Changelly offers a large selection of trading crypto pairs (over 90) for USD and EUR. Also, this exchanger allows the use of debit and credit cards (Visa or Mastercard).
Geographic and transaction limits
ShapeShift and Changelly doesn’t have any restrictions at the place of stay. Users from all over the world are free to use both projects. This is good news, especially given the fact that now many exchanges can not boast of such accessibility.
If you are going to change large amounts, you need to take into account that each exchanger has its own limitations. ShapeShift has a relatively low transaction limit of $10,000 for level 1 users.

So which exchanger, after all, is better? Having studied all these criteria, we can say that Changelly is slightly ahead of ShapeShift in its parameters.

Decred Journal – September 2018

Note: you can read this on GitHub (link), Medium (link) or old Reddit (link).

Development

Final version 1.3.0 of the core software was released bringing all the enhancements reported last month to the rest of the community. The groundwork for SPV (simplified payment verification) is complete, another reduction of fees is being deployed, and performance stepped up once again with a 50% reduction in startup time, 20% increased sync speed and more than 3x faster peer delivery of block headers (a key update for SPV). Decrediton's integrations of SPV and Politeia are open for testing by experienced users. Read the full release notes and get the downloads on GitHub. As always, don't forget to verify signatures.
dcrd: completed several steps towards multipeer downloads, improved introduction to the software in the main README, continued porting cleanups and refactoring from upstream btcd.
Currently in review are initial release of smart fee estimator and a change to UTXO set semantics. The latter is a large and important change that provides simpler handling, and resolves various issues with the previous approach. A lot of testing and careful review is needed so help is welcome.
Educational series for new Decred developers by @matheusd added two episodes: 02 Simnet Setup shows how to automate simnet management with tmux and 03 Miner Reward Invalidation explains block validity rules.
Finally, a pull request template with a list of checks was added to help guide the contributors to dcrd.
dcrwallet: bugfixes and RPC improvements to support desktop and mobile wallets.
Developers are welcome to comment on this idea to derive stakepool keys from the HD wallet seed. This would eliminate the need to backup and restore redeem scripts, thus greatly improving wallet UX. (missed in July issue)
Decrediton: bugfixes, refactoring to make the sync process more robust, new loading animations, design polishing.
Politeia: multiple improvements to the CLI client (security conscious users with more funds at risk might prefer CLI) and security hardening. A feature to deprecate or timeout proposals was identified as necessary for initial release and the work started. A privacy enhancement to not leak metadata of ticket holders was merged.
Android: update from @collins: "Second test release for dcrandroid is out. Major bugs have been fixed since last test. Latest code from SPV sync has been integrated. Once again, bug reports are welcome and issues can be opened on GitHub". Ask in #dev room for the APK to join testing.
A new security page was added that allows one to validate addresses and to sign/verify messages, similar to Decrediton's Security Center. Work on translations is beginning.
Overall the app is quite stable and accepting more testers. Next milestone is getting the test app on the app store.
iOS: the app started accepting testers last week. @macsleven: "the test version of Decred Wallet for iOS is available, we have a link for installing the app but the builds currently require your UDID. Contact either @macsleven or @raedah with your UDID if you would like to help test.".
Nearest goal is to make the app crash free.
Both mobile apps received new design themes.
dcrdata: v3.0 was released for mainnet! Highlights: charts, "merged debits" view, agendas page, Insight API support, side chain tracking, Go 1.11 support with module builds, numerous backend improvements. Full release notes here. This release featured 9 contributors and development lead @chappjc noted: "This collaboration with @raedahgroup on our own block explorer and web API for @decredproject has been super productive.".
Up next is supporting dynamic page widths site wide and deploying new visual blocks home page.
Trezor: proof of concept implementation for Trezor Model T firmware is in the works (previous work was for Model One).
Ticket splitting: updated to use Go modules and added simnet support, several fixes.
docs: beginner's guide overhaul, multiple fixes and cleanups.
decred.org: added 3rd party wallets, removed inactive PoW pools and removed web wallet.
@Richard-Red is building a curated list of Decred-related GitHub repositories.
Welcome to new people contributing for the first time: @klebe, @s_ben, @victorguedes, and PrimeDominus!
Dev activity stats for September: 219 active PRs, 197 commits, 28.7k added and 18.8k deleted lines spread across 6 repositories. Contributions came from 4-10 developers per repository. (chart)

Network

Hashrate: started and ended the month around 75 PH/s, hitting a low of 60.5 and a new high of 110 PH/s. BeePool is again the leader with their share varying between 23-54%, followed by F2Pool 13-30%, Coinmine 4-6% and Luxor 3-5%. As in previous months, there were multiple spikes of unidentified hashrate.
Staking: 30-day average ticket price is 98 DCR (+2.4). The price varied between 95.7 and 101.9 DCR. Locked DCR amount was 3.86-3.96 million DCR, or 45.7-46.5% of the supply.
Nodes: there are 201 public listening nodes and 325 normal nodes per dcred.eu. Version distribution: 5% are v1.4.0(pre) dev builds (+3%), 30% on v1.3.0 (+25%), 42% on v1.2.0 (-20%), 15% on v1.1.2 (-7%), 6% on v1.1.0. More than 76% of nodes run v1.2.0 and higher and therefore support client filters. Data as of Oct 1.

ASICs

Obelisk posted two updates on their mailing list. 70% of Batch 1 units are shipped, an extensive user guide is available, Obelisk Scanner application was released that allows one to automatically update firmware. First firmware update was released and bumped SC1 hashrate by 10-20%, added new pools and fixed multiple bugs. Next update will focus on DCR1. It is worth a special mention that the firmware source code is now open! Let us hope more manufacturers will follow this example.
A few details about Whatsminer surfaced this month. The manufacturer is MicroBT, also known as Bitwei and commonly misspelled as Bitewei. Pangolinminer is a reseller, and the model name is Whatsminer D1.
Bitmain has finally entered Decred ASIC space with their Antminer DR3. Hash rate is 7.8 TH/s while pulling 1410 W, at the price of $673. These specs mean it has the best GH/W and GH/USD of currently sold miners until the Whatsminer or others come out, although its GH/USD of 11.6 already competes with Whatsminer's 10.5. Discussed on Reddit and bitcointalk, unboxing video here.

Integrations

Meet our 17th voting service provider: decredvoting.com. It is operated by @david, has 2% fee and supports ticket splitting. Reddit thread is here.
For a historical note, the first VSP to support ticket splitting was decredbrasil.com:
@matheusd started tests on testnet several months ago. I contacted him so we could integrate with the pool in June this year. We set up the machine in July and bought the first split ticket on mainnet, using the decredbrasil pool, on July 19. It was voted on July 30. After this first vote on mainnet, we opened the tests to selected users (with more technical background) on the pool. In August we opened the tests to everyone, and would call people who want to join to the #ticket_splitting channel, or to our own Slack (in Portuguese, so mostly Brazilian users). We have 28 split tickets already voted, and 16 are live. So little more than 40 split tickets total were bought on decredbrasil pool. (@girino in #pos-voting)
KuCoin exchange listed DCBTC and DCETH pairs. To celebrate their anniversary they had a 99% trading fees discount on DCR pairs for 2 weeks.
Three more wallets integrated Decred in September:
ChangeNow announced Decred addition to their Android app that allows accountless swaps between 150+ assets.
Coinbase launched informational asset pages for top 50 coins by market cap, including Decred. First the pages started showing in the Coinbase app for a small group of testers, and later the web price dashboard went live.

Adoption

The birth of a Brazilian girl was registered on the Decred blockchain using OriginalMy, a blockchain proof of authenticity services provider. Read the full story in Portuguese and in English.

Marketing

Advertising report for September is ready. Next month the graphics for all the ads will be changing.
Marketing might seem quiet right now, but a ton is actually going on behind the scenes to put the right foundation in place for the future. Discovery data are being analyzed to generate a positioning strategy, as well as a messaging hierarchy that can guide how to talk about Decred. This will all be agreed upon via consensus of the community in the work channels, and materials will be distributed.
Next, work is being done to identify the right PR partner to help with media relations, media training, and coordination at events. While all of this is coming up to speed, we believe the website needs a refresher reflecting the soon to be agreed upon messaging, plus a more intuitive architecture to make it easier to navigate.

Events

Attended:
Upcoming:
We'll begin shortly reviewing conferences and events planned for the first half of 2019. Highlights are sure to include The North American Bitcoin Conference in Miami (Jan 16-18) and Consensus in NYC (May 14-16). If you have suggestions of events or conferences Decred should attend, please share them in #event_planning. In 2019, we would like to expand our presence in Europe, Asia, and South America, and we're looking for community members to help identify and staff those events. (@Dustorf)

Markets

In September DCR was trading in the range of USD 34-45 / BTC 0.0054-0.0063. On Sep 6, DCR revisited the bottom of USD 34 / BTC 0.0054 when BTC quickly dropped from USD 7,300 to 6,400. On Sep 14, a small price rise coincided with both the start of KuCoin trading and hashrate spike to 104 PH/s. Looking at coinmarketcap charts, the trading volume is a bit lower than in July and August.
As of Oct 4, Decred is #18 by the number of daily transactions with 3,200 tx, and #9 by the USD value of daily issuance with $230k. (source: onchainfx)
Interesting observation by @ImacallyouJawdy: while we sit at 2018 price lows the amount locked in tickets is testing 2018 high.

Relevant External

ASIC for Lyra2REv2 was spotted on the web. Vertcoin team is preparing a new PoW algorithm. This would be the 3rd fork after two previous forks to change the algorithm in 2014 and 2015.
A report titled The Positive Externalities of Bitcoin Mining discusses the benefits of PoW mining that are often overlooked by the critics of its energy use.
A Brief Study of Cryptonetwork Forks by Alex Evans of Placeholder studies the behavior of users, developers and miners after the fork, and makes the cases that it is hard for child chains to attract users and developers from their parent chains.
New research on private atomic swaps: the paper "Anonymous Atomic Swaps Using Homomorphic Hashing" attempts to break the public link between two transactions. (bitcointalk, decred)
On Sep 18 Poloniex announced delisting of 8 more assets. That day they took a 12-80% dive showing their dependence on this one exchange.
Circle introduced USDC markets on Poloniex: "USDC is a fully collateralized US dollar stablecoin using the ERC-20 standard that provides detailed financial and operational transparency, operates within the regulated framework of US money transmission laws, and is reinforced by established banking partners and auditors.".
Coinbase announced new asset listing process and is accepting submissions on their listing portal. (decred)
The New York State Office of the Attorney General posted a study of 13 exchanges that contains many insights.
A critical vulnerability was discovered and fixed in Bitcoin Core. Few days later a full disclosure was posted revealing the severity of the bug. In a bitcointalk thread btcd was called 'amateur' despite not being vulnerable, and some Core developers voiced their concerns about multiple implementations. The Bitcoin Unlimited developer who found the bug shared his perspective in a blog post. Decred's vision so far is that more full node implementations is a strength, just like for any Internet protocol.

[Free] [Guide] Kryptex BTC Miner! Best miner for beginners!

Kryptex is a perfect, lightweight bitcoin miner that I have used on and off over the past year now. I have only used it about a month in time total, accumulating over $30, and you can expect at least $30-$70 per month with a decent enough rig (https://i.imgur.com/LruixfG.png first and only withdraw of btc and my current balancehttps://i.imgur.com/qV8RWoX.png), last I had was $9 and I only remember running it for a couple days before turning it off and forgetting about it). I personally believe this is the best mining software for beginners or even novices, with such an easy setup that only takes minutes. Not to mention they have both a lite mode and and full mode depending on how hard you want your computer to run, or if you want to run the app in the background with games or videos. I have found it doesn't affect my system much if at all, and my specs are 16gb RAM, Ryzen 5 1600 and a 1060 6GB.
You're first brought into a benchmark after logging into your account (there is a warning about antiviruses producing false positives. https://i.imgur.com/6DEqB4l.png) but down below you can find an antivirus link with the full scan of the .exe. During the benchmark the program doesn't use much computer power, only about 10% cpu, <1000mb of ram and <5% GPU. Once the benchmark is you are free to check the app and see what it has to offer!
In the settings you're first greeted with an option for Starting with Windows and an option to enable or disable the use of the CPU. After that you are given a drop down that lets you choose the mode Kyrptex will run when on in the background, I recommend Lite Mode as it will be the best for your pc during use and you can leave the heavier loads for when your pc is sleeping or inactive. With only litemode you could expect anywhere from $5-$15 depending on your rig and load, I usually sit at about $7-$13 per month. You also have an advanced settings option giving you the option to disable/enable your cpus or gpus and which algorithms you'd like to use. From Dagger Hashimoto #1 & #2, CryptoNight, Cuckoo Cycle, X16R and their recently added Equihash 150, 5.
As a beginner miner, and someone who has tried only a few programs, my word of course isnt the best, but out of the select miners I've tried, I truly believe this is the best miner program, especially for beginners who are trying to test the waters out.

WolfPackBOT - What is WolfpackBOT ?

What is WolfpackBOT?
WolfpackBOT is an automated cryptocurrency trading software that is suitable for both beginners and advanced traders alike. WolfpackBOT executes trades at lightning speed with simple to use proprietary trading algorithms, proprietary “Werewolf” Trading Analysis configurations, or user customized settings based on personal trading style. WolfpackBOT also allows for simultaneous trading access to all compatible cryptocurrency exchanges that are available to the bot, and supports all trading pairs.

Wolfcoin Blockchain
The Wolfcoin blockchain and network are both designed and engineered to ensure store of value, transactional speed and security, and fungibility. The main goal of the Wolfcoin blockchain is to facilitate fast and secure transactions with a governance that helps sustain the network for the benefit of all users. The Wolfcoin blockchain is a two-tier network comprised of a Proof of Work (PoW) consensus mechanism powered by miners and a Proof of service (PoSe) system powered by masternodes. Miners receive rewards for ensuring the security of the blockchain and masternodes are rewarded for facilitating the features of the network including Private Send and Instant Send.
Wolfcoin uses the X11 hashing algorithm and is based on the Bitcoin Core codebase version 0.10.x.

Wolfcoin PoW X11 Mining
The Wolfcoin blockchain is secured through Proof of Work (PoW) in which miners attempt to solve difficult problems with specialized computers. When a problem is solved, the miner receives the right to add a new block to the blockchain. If the problem was solved correctly, the miner is rewarded once the block is added. Miners power the first tier of the Wolfcoin network, which is the basic sending and receiving of funds and prevention of double spending.
Wolfcoin is mineable on our pool http://140.82.50.169. To mine Wolfcoin, please direct your X11 miner to this pool using the directions on the main page of our Wolfpack Mining Pool.

Wolfcoin Masternodes
Masternodes enable Wolfcoin to facilitate private and instant transactions with Private Send and Instant Send features. Masternodes are also rewarded when miners discover new blocks. The block reward is distributed with 80% going to the masternodes and 20% going to miners. The masternode system is referred to as Proof of Service (PoSe), since the masternodes provide the resources that support the key services and features of the network. Masternodes also oversee the network and have the power to reject blocks from miners if they are improperly formed. If a miner tried to take the entire block reward for themselves, the masternode network would ensure that the block would not be added to the blockchain.
Wolfcoin holders can become masternodes by holding at least 10,000 Wolfcoin in a dedicated wallet on a computer or VPS running Windows with a dedicated static IP address. The funds are not locked in any way; however, if enough of the funds are moved or spent to cause the user’s holdings to drop below 10,000 Wolfcoin, the associated masternode will go offline and stop receiving rewards.

I had like 3 friends ask me how to build a PC in the past week so I made this to help them. Feel free to use or send me an e-mail if you want the txt file

(Reddit Edit: Help my improve the document with productive comments on what I got wrong or messed up! Im only human lol
Also a lot of this is supposed to be kinda humorous. I didn't think I had to say that but, hey, its the internet.
I appreciate the positive and productive comments! )
Beginners basic guide to building your own PC as of early 2018
(EDIT: Sorry for being a MSI/Corsair Fanboy)
Heres a collection of thoughts to consider when building your own personal PC
As always Id personally use PCPartPicker.com to configure your parts and for further thoughts on compatibility.
First off building a computer is 100% based around what you plan to use the computer for.
Here are a few uses and generic ideas of what to go for. Audio Editing: Lots of small tasks that need to be completed quickly without lag. - Fast Processor( >4GHZ) - Fast RAM (MHZ) -At least 16 gigs! - Fast Storage, SSD manditorily - M.2 or PCI for best performance. - Shitty Graphics card, graphics card there only to keep the cpu from doing other tasks when working. - Can be a few generations or years old. - Many screens for lots of plug in windows to be open Video Editing: Lots of large to render and files to read. - Multi core processor the more the merrier - SSD for fast read/write of large video files. - Insane graphics card, AMD graphics cards are debatibly better but the nvidia Quadro series are specific for video rendering. Gaming: No more than 4 cores intense graphics card - 92% of games are not coded for more than 4 cores so why spend the extra money for it. - SSD for quick load screens - Nvidia cards, 10 series, the higher the number the better. Titan cards for MAXIMUM OVERDRIVE! Coding: quick processor for lots of small tasks. Ergonomic peripherials? - Dear god please dont use a mechanical keyboard so that your coworkers dont kill you. Home office: Everything can be a few gens behind so you can get the best power per dollar spent. - Sorry that Gateway doesnt exist anymore. I guess try Dell... 
Parts (Expensive Legos)
CPU (tells things to go places and outputs data) Basically three main routes to go for: Intel, AMD, or ASIC. Intel - Gaming, Data center, Hackintosh Pros: Cooler, Faster speed (GHZ), short small tasks faster Cons: $$$$, less cores AMD - Gaming, Personal Computing, Large task processing Pros: Lots of cores, better price per performance, faster processing of large tasks Cons: Hot chips, large chips?, compatibility issues with MacOS. ASIC - "Application-specific integrated circuit" Pros: Does the task that they are made to do insanely efficently, great for mining. Cons: Literally does nothing else. Holy hell these are expensive, very hot (fans will get loud) CPU Cooler (Im a big fan) Most come with an in box cooler that are ok but please buy aftermarket. In Box - the free shitty cooler that comes with the processor. Pros: Free. Cons: Ugly, makes chip run hot, hard to clean Air cooler - oldest type of cooler but new designs are highly efficent. Pros: Only cooler that has the possibility of being 100% quiet, most likely cheaper Cons: large, if cooler isnt large enough for the chips thermal output the fans will be loud. Liquid - Custom pipes are beautiful, AIO is easy to install and offers similare performance. Pros: Looks cool, great temperatures, "quiet" Cons: Water pump has possibility of being loud, possible spills Phase Change - uses the technology of refridgerators to cool the chip Pros: Can overclock until the chip breaks. (whats colder than cold? ICE COLD!) Cons: Loud (compressor noise), Large pipes, just why.... Motherboard (the convienacnce store of computer parts) Really just about what type of I/O you want. - MAKE SURE FORM FACTOR FITS YOUR CASE! (or vice versa) - Look for PCI lanes for expansion. - How many graphic cards do you have? - PCI based interfaces? - PCI SSD? - PCI DAC? - PCI WIFI? - USbs? Network? Audio? - How many lanes of RAM? - DOES IT FIT YOUR PROCESSOR!?! (really tho) - M.2? - How many sata interaces? Good Brands: MSI, ASUS, Gigabyte Bad Brands: AS(s)Rock, Dell Memory (Dory) - The more the merrier - No less than 8gb for a functional windows machine (16 gb to never have a problem) - Use all the lanes your computer has to offer! the more lanes to access the faster the data can travel! -Imagine drinking a milkshake. If the straw is wider you can drink more of the milkshake than a skinny straw. - Faster MHZ for faster data access but give minimal performance differances - Please get ram with heat spreadders unles youre building a server with high airflow. - Make sure the type (DDR3 or DDR4) of RAM matches what your processomotherboard call for. Good Brands: Corsair, G.Skill, Ballistix Storage (Grandpa that remembers everythign about how things used to be but takes forever to learn a new tasK) Speed or massive storage? slower is cheaper. Golden ratio of speed/storage/price is 250-500 gb SSD and a 1+ tb disk drive. *Max speeds listed are for a single drive not RAID* Hard Disk Drives (HDD) - Cheapest and slowest - read/write speeds of < 0.5gb/s - 7200+ RPM or GTFO - Higher Speed drives can access data faster. - Do not move while powered up. physical parts will break. - Larger Cahche = faster Read/Write Speeds Pros: Cheap, Holds massive amounts of data Cons: Slower than molasses in a frezer Reputible Brands: Seagate, WD Solid State Drives (SSD) - necessity for quick boots and fast load screens (can only be re-written to so many times) - SATA based (2.5 inch)- Read/Write speeds capped @ 6 gb/s Pros: Most economical, form factor fits with old computers, Cons: "Slow" compared to other ssd's (but stil 12 times faster than a HDD) - M.2 based - Read/Write speeds capped @ 10 gb/s Pros: Size of a sick of gum! High End but not too expensive to be out of reach. Cons: Expensive for any size over 500 gb - PCI based - Read/Write speeds capped @ 20 gb/s for PCI3, x4 Pros: HOLY BANDWIDTH BATMAN! Faster than that little creepy ghost thats always in the corner of you eye Cons: You might have to take out a loan to buy one. *takes up a x4 PCI Lane* Reputible Brands: Samsung! Corsair, Plextor, Intel, Kingston, Crucial Video Card (that one kid that has thick glasses and is really good at math) - A regular old PCI card that handles all of the video rendering and output for your computer. - ASIC PCI cards. - The PCBs and chips are patented by two main companies but the differances come from line up and varying manufacturer cooling devices. - The more memory the better -NVIDIA (Team Green) Great for gaming, has specific card series for intensive rendering. Lazy driver updates. - Gaming - 900 series - Cheap - Low performance - Can play any video game made befrore 2010 on max settings - 1000 (ten) series - Expensive (thanks bitcoin miners...) - Great for VR! - Video Rendering -Quadro Series - Gaming and Rendering - Titan X - Maxwell based chip same as 900 series cards - Titan XP - Pascal based chip same as 10 series cards -AMD (Team Red) Underdog does the same thing but slighly worse and cheaper. (except video rendering) - Gaming - RX 400 series - Cheap - Hot - RX 500 series - Cheap - Ok at VR and deacent gaming frame rates. - Not bad but not particularly great either. - Video Rendering - Fire Pro series - Gaming and Rendering - Vega series -Good luck finding one to buy lmao Case (Fancy clothing for your parts!) - Similar to human clothing you want it to do a few main things really well with compromises for each extreme. - Durability - Steel - Incredibly durable - Creates Farady cage for components - Heavy af - Magnets, just magnets.... - Rust over time - Aluminium - Light - East to bend for modding or "physical maintenance" - Less likely to rust - Huzzah for Farady cages! - Plastic - Just dont - no electrical Ground - no faraday cage - Light AF! - Breath (Airflow) - positive internal airflow! - larger fans push the same amount of air with less speed/noise - Looks - Window? - RGB - Cool Paint? - Fit all your parts - graphics card length/ clearacne - support for liquid cooling raiators? - How many spots for HDD/SSDs - Motherboard format - Cable management! Power Supply (FIGHT MILK) - Rule of thumb: BUy Powersupply that outputs 1.5 times the wattage that you need. - You can walk further than you can you can run. - The PSU can casually output 50-75% power for much longer than at 90-100% (without failure) - If you never demand enough wattage for it to get hot the fan doesnt have to turn on therefore making it quieter. - Modular means you can remove/replace the cables from the PSU. Reputible Brands: Corsair, EVGA Optical Drive (motorized cup holder) - You can download most things today so I'd suggest against it unless you really NEED to watch/write DVD's/CD's Operating System (software that makes everything work) Windows (Always Updates) - Compatible with just about everything - Easy to learn to code on! - POS inital browser - Likely to get virus's Linux (Penguins are cute) - Unique - takes less resources to run - Barebones - Incredibly personalizable! - Compatibility issues with just about everything MacOS (Linux but more annoying) - It is legal! - Great for art and your grandma that doenst know how to use computers! - User friendly - Compatibility issues with various hardware - Confusing/Limiting coding structure Peripherials (cables everywhere!) - Keyboard (higer Polling rate is better) - Mechanical (key is pressed at an exact stroke length every time - Mouse (Higher Polling rate is better) - more buttons = better? - DPI (Dots Per Inch) - In theory, if a mouse has 1600 DPI, then, if you move your mouse one inch (2.54 cm), the mouse cursor will move 1600 pixels - Higher DPI the faster your cursor is able to be moved. - Monitor - In theory the human eye cant see faster than 60 frames per second. - Keep in mind Pixel ratio! - 4k screen that is 22inches will have more pixels in a square inch than a 4k screen that is 28 inches. - Interface? - DVI (Analog) - thumbscrews..... - can do two monitors with one port! - support for 4k - VGA (Analog) - thumbscrews... - max resolution is 1440p - Display Port (digital) - nice button clip - supports 4k - HDMI (Digital) - 1.2 or higer supports 4k - DAC/Speakers/Headphones - Dont even get me started - Microphone - Dont get me started PT.2 Other (other) - UPS (uninterruptible power supply) Just a battery that allows your computer to have some time if the power ever goes out so that you have time to save your work. - Cable Organization materials! - Zipties - velcro - LED LIGHTING! - Manditory - Extra/Better fans - More pressure, less woosh - IFIXIT Pro Tech Toolkit - becasue who buys just one torx wrench. - Cute kitten mousepad - Yes, it has to be a cat. Dont argue 
This is a very general entry into building computers and what you should buy/look for. If you have any questions/comments send me an e-mail!
