Interesting crypto project with a mission. 25% of generated wealth goes to an animal fund to save animals. From the developers:
Small tech startup develops new way anyone can save animals, without spending money.
Veggie is a cryptocurrency similar to Bitcoin, designed to raise funds for animals. Using their new software Veggie-qt, users generate a cryptocurrency called Veggie. The user keeps 75% of the coins they generate. The remaining 25% is sent to a separate animal fund.
The Veggie community votes on which animal charities and initiatives to fund with the separate animal fund. Users don’t need to donate their money to make a real difference to the welfare of animals. Simply by running the software, users will generate wealth for themselves and help make an amazing impact on animals around the world.
Cryptocurrency is a form of digital currency, that has gained massive popularity in recent years. With the rise of currencies such as Bitcoin and Ethereum, the cryptocurrency market value now stands at over $500 billion. The Veggie team is developing groundbreaking advancements in this technology, to improve the welfare of animals globally.
On the first day of release, hundreds of miners in the Veggie community began mining. In just one month, the community has generated over 800,000 coins, and over 200,000 coins have been generated in the animal fund.
Veggie is due to be listed with a number of popular cryptocurrency exchanges in the near future. When Veggie becomes available on exchanges, the public can begin trading it. The coins generated in the separate animal fund will be allocated to a number of charities, funds and initiatives which are chosen by the community.
The Veggie developers are currently improving the user-friendliness of the software for future updates. A simple tutorial on how to mine Veggie coins can be found here. The Veggie software is available on Windows, OSX and Linux, and can be found here. A more detailed description of the software can be found at the Veggie website www.veggiecoin.io
Currently Bitcoin is trading at $18,000 and with all the media coverage all over the World in the past month, interest in Bitcoin is on the rise. People are looking to get a piece of the Bitcoin billions and with more “normal” people getting their hands on Bitcoins, the outlook for Bitcoin is bright.
A $20,000 price tag is a realistic bid on where we’ll see Bitcoin as we move into the next year.
If you’re looking to buy bitcoin, head over to Coinbase and pick up free bitcoin worth 10$ when you open an account. More information on the free $10 can be found at Coinbase.
In the cryptocurrency world, everybody knows about mining bitcoin. In the ”old days”, people could setup mining on a regular home computer with a powerful graphics card installed and actually make a dime from time to time. But as Bitcoin is getting harder and harder to mine, people let the big players mine bitcoin and look to other coins to try to make a profit.
Normally you mine with your computer and get coins as a reward. That’s how transactions are confirmed. That’s called Proof of Work (PoW) and is referred to as mining.
But there is also a System called Proof of Stake (PoS), where transaction confirmations are not done with hardware, but with already owned coins. An amount of your coins are ”on the stake”, while they are used for staking. That depends a little on the implementation, but basically you get a certain percentage of your coins as a reward.
Some people think, they can ”earn” coins this way, but that’s nonsense, because if the market cap stays stable, the single coins are worth less, if new coins are generated. So you just “keep” your value, if you are staking. And you ”lose”, if you are not. It’s like in a bank if you get 2% interest and the inflation is 2% as well. You only “earn”, if there are transaction fees and if those are also paid to the staker.
Ready to invest in an altcoin masternode? Picking the right coin can be a bit of a headache, but a new line of masternode comparison websites are popping up, showing a lot of financial stats on a wide range of coins.
The 3 websites listed here are more or less covering the same coins, but as some of the sites are “pay-to-list”, some coins are missing out.
We’ll be looking at 3 masternode monitoring websites:
Basic financial info for the masternodes. Free alert service (beta) for monitoring your own masternodes.
So… Which monitor to choose? Well, I can’t pick one over the other, as they all have unique coins listed and unique services offered. Also, you should NEVER rely on a single source of information in the world of crypto. Keep these sites in mind when planning your next masternode investment, and you’ll be off on a good start.
A fun way to get coin “dust” is by interacting with fun services like bitrad.io (where you get paid for listening to music) or this web game called Digital Trip.
Digital Trip is a 3D flying experience in space where you have to collect coins while avoiding rocks tumbling your way. The longer you keep playing, the more coins you collect. You can also collect power-ups like the HTML5 logo, which will act as a shield against the ever on-coming flying rocks.
Once you run out of energy, you can see your total amount collected. Enter our Digital Price [DP] address in order to have your coins sent over. (You need to download the Digital Price wallet from www.digitalprice.org)
Earning BRO is easier than you think. With more than 80,000 users, bitrad.io is the main source of free BRO coins. You simply sign up for the free radio service offeredm start listening to musinc and you’re done. When ever you listen to music via bitrad.io, you get paid. BRO coins are currently traded at Cryptopia with hopes on hitting Bittrex in the near future.
Put your receive address on your bitrad.io profile
Listen to radio and earn BRO 🙂
If you accumulate a lot of BRO coins, you should stake your coins. Chances are you’re already doing it as the BRO wallet is set to stake your coins automatically. When staking, you can be rewarded – the reward is currently 0.5 BRO and by hovering over the small lightning bolt in the lower right corner of your wallet, you can get an idea of how long you have to wait (on average) to be rewarded.
This short guide will get you up and running mining BiblePay (BBP) on your computer – either on your own or using a mining pool.
First you need to download the wallet. Get it at www.biblepay.org. Download the wallet that fits your system. We’ll be using the Windows 64bit version for this guide.
Let the download finish and install the wallet. When you run a wallet for the first time, the entire blockchain is downloaded to your computer. This can take a while – just be patient and wait.
Meanwhile, register at one of the mining pools for mining your coins. This is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. If you’re mining using an average PC, you could go for many weeks before seeing any mining rewards. Using a pool, you’ll get a smaller amount, but more often as you mine with other users. Currently you have two to choose from:
0-6% fee, 24 hours maturity
2%-fee, 24 hours maturity
Now we need to modify a file called biblepay.conf and tell your wallet to start mining. If you’re on Windows press the Windows key + R to bring up a Run… box. Type %AppData%\BiblepayCore and press enter. Locate the biblepay.conf file and open it in your editor. Add the following to your file:
The first two lines add a few nodes from the BiblePay network. Next we have gen=1, telling the wallet to mine. Genproclimit=1 is the limit on processes the wallet can use for mining. Check your CPU usage and try raising the limit. Poolport=80 simply tells the wallet to submit results via post 80 on youer compurter.
Remember to change the last two lines to fit your mining pool and worker information. The address for the official mining pool is http://pool.biblepay.org/ – and remember to put in your own username.
BiblePay is a secure deflationary blockchain developed to benefit those in distress. 10% of the emission of the blockchain goes directly to sponsoring Orphans, with provable contributions, contributed to an organization that is more than 75% efficient.
The altcoin BiblePay is not a PoS (Proof-of-Stake) coin. It’s not a PoW (Proof-of-Work) coin. But what is it? It’s PoB (Proof-of-Biblehash).
This snipplet from the project website www.biblepay.org describes what Proof-of-Biblehash is:
Proof of Work has been replaced with Proof Of Biblehash (POB) – an algorithm that compensates full nodes participation, while preventing GPUs and ASIC by requiring full blockchain transaction referencing in the hashing function, along with chained bible verses. This means biblepay subsidizes full nodes that stay online.
Also worth mentioning is the fact that premine, dev fund, airdrop etc. on BiblePay (BBP) is 0%!
NO PREMINE – the lead dev starts with zero, the orphan foundation fund starts with zero, the distribution is entirely fair. NO ICO. The distribution curve is evenly declining with no hidden bumps early.
There you have it. Start mining today, on your desktop computer. It’s easy to get up and running. Follow on and check out this post to learn how to start mining BiblePay (BBP).
BiblePay is currently (Nov 2nd 2017) traded at C-CEX in the following pairs:
