The Minebox project has announced a new date for the start of the pre-sale of their hardware – March 3rd. Initially the pre-sale of the Minebox NAS device was planned to start about a month ago, but there were some delays. The pre-sale of the Minebox NAS is in partnership with Shapeshift, meaning that the hardware should be purchasable with wide variety of alt coins such as SiaCoin, Ethereum, Monero and others…

The Minebox NAS is a device for storing your own data securely as well as for making use of your free and unused space by earning a blockchain powered cryptocurrency thanks to the integration of SiaCoin (SC). Minebox is based on affordable Enterprise grade hardware from HP, namely the HP MicroServer and the whole project is an interesting idea worth following, so if you still haven’t checked the details, than you might want to get a better idea on what the whole thing is about.

You can now start selling your hashrate or alternatively buying such for the X11-Gost algorithm used by SIBCoin (SIB) on NiceHash. SIBCoin is mostly supported by the Russian community, but in the last couple of months it has been growing steadily and the addition from NiceHash may help in the coin getting more interest from the international crypto community. The coin has a CPU miner, though not much useful nowadays with the availability of GPU miners. You can download the latest release ccMiner by tpruvot for Nvidia CUDA support of SIB and NiceHash or the latest NiceHash sgminer fork for AMD OpenCL GPUs. The latest release of the NiceHash Miner v1.7.5.0 software also comes with built-in support for the new X11-Gost algorithm used by SIB.

Interesting update coming from NiceHash as they have announced they are currently implementing support for PascalCoin (PASC) on their marketplace for users selling and renting hashrate. There are currently two mining pools available for PASC from Nanopool and from Suprnova and it is being traded on Poloniex with a very serious volume. Recently there was was a more turbulene surrounding the coin thanks to unexpected fork of the blockchain following a wallet update, but it seems that the issue has been resolved for the moment. We’ve had our doubts that PascalCoin may have a short lived pump and dump on Poloniex. It seems that we are past over that phase already with the user interest remaining and the support for PASC increasing, so you might want to keep an eye out for PascalCoin (PASC) if you haven’t been doing it already as of late…
