Innosilicon is also joining the game with CryptoNight ASIC miners as the company has just announced their new Innosilicon A8+ CryptoMaster. An ASIC miner for CryptoNight capable of delivering 240 KH/s with 480 Watts of power usage with delivery time starting from 16th April, 2018. No official word on pricing yet announced, thouhg they should be cheaper than What Bitmain is currently selling their X3 miners at in order to be competitive since Innosilicon is slower, but will start shipping earlier.

Here are the official specifications of the Innosilicon A8+ CryptoMaster CryptoNight ASIC miner. Innosilicon advertises the device as suitable for mining many currencies on the CryptoNight, including XMC, ETN, KRB, DCY… so just 4 of the “many”. Do note that Monero (XMR) has already forked to the new CryptoNightV7 POW and will not be compatible with these ASIC miners, other coins using the old CryptoNight algorithm have akso forker or are planning to fork soon to the new V7, so by the time you get the device the many coins may be just a few.

Just having a hardware crypto wallet and leaving it on your desk at the office or at home may not be the smartest thing to do. CryptoCloaks has figured out an easy and inexpensive way to help you keep your hardware wallet safer and hidden with the help of special 3D printed wallet mounts. Currently there are two designs available, one for Ledger Nano S and one for Trezor wallets and you get get yours for just $6 USD. There are options available for a few custom colors that you can choose from and you can also decide if you want a logo or not, for $3 extra you can request a custom logo on your wallet mount (crypto payments are also accepted). There are two variants available for each wallet, one is with 4 screws for mounting and the other one is for screwless mounting (uses 3M adhesive tape), so you have some flexibility how and where to mount the wallet holder to keep your wallet safe.

CryptoCloaks has also prepared a design for the KeepKey wallet, but that one has not yet been put on sale on their website, they just posted some photos and have announced it will soon be available. So no matter what kind of major crypto hardware wallet you have available, you should be covered with a good and affordable 3D printed holder for your wallet. Again, the idea of these wallet holders is to mount them in a hidden place to get some extra security and not to mount them on the wall next to your desk for example, as some people might think to be a cool idea.

If you want to get fancy and are not worried to keep your hardware wallet on your desk, then you might want to check out a new Kickstarter project for a cool handcrafted wooden case designed for Trezor and Ledger Nano S wallets. The project is CoinCase, claiming to be the world’s first case for hardware wallets and the product looks really nice and cool, so definitely worth checking out. If you pledge 99 EURO you can get your place for a CoinCase, completely designed and manufactured in Germany wooden case for your hardware wallet (KeepKey not yet supported) and get it probably in June as stated as an estimated delivery.

Back in September last year we have introduced to you the JSEcoin – Javascript Embeded Cryptocurrency for Webmasters, an interesting new project for web-based crypto currency mining targeted at webmasters for monetizing their traffic. It is a custom crypto currency project and not just another web-based CryptoNight miner like Coin Hive or GridCash. Since then a lot has happened and the project has continued its development and improvement, so if you have missed checking it out the last time, then you might want to give it a go now. Although it is originally intended fro webmasters to monetize their website traffic, the project also offer an option to self mine as well from within the browser, do note that both self mining and publisher mining have completely separate rewards.

While there is still no official exchange where the JSE coins are being traded, probably happening after the ICO, there are now merchant tools available for people to actually use JSEcoins as a means for payment for products or services online. Recently there have been some changes in the number of JSE tokens available and the total number to be issued with an increase of 200x of the number of tokens, the ones already held by users as well as the max cap. Mining rewards are also up of course, so you just get more coins, but the value should remain pretty much the same while JSEcoin is getting ready for an upcoming ICO where a maximum of 50% of the max total cap will be made available for sale. The ICO will be held later this year and we like projects that are running crowdsales of tokens when they already have a working service or product and not before that, so we are definitely going to continue watching this project as it develops.
