ethereum-wallet-latest-beta-shapeshift

The official Ethereum graphical wallet is improving and getting more user friendly with each new beta release, making it easier for people that are not very happy with the console only clients such as geth and eth. The wallet relies on geth (by default) or eth as a backend and provides a user friendly interface with the most important information and functions available to the user without requiring him to type console commands to execute them. The latest Beta 6 release makes it easier to backup your wallet by adding a menu command that takes you directly tot he folder where your wallet is being stored, so the only thing you need to do is to copy the file in a safe location. The new wallet comes with a button called Deposit using Bitcoin that invokes integrated support for ShapeShift allowing you to easily and quickly buy Ether coins and have them easily transferred to your Ethereum wallet. Although the button is called Deposit with Bitcoin you can actually use other altcoins supported by ShapeShift to purchase Ethereum with the needed support built-in right into the wallet. Another useful new addition is that the wallet will now show historical prices from the time of the transaction thanks to integration with the CryptoCompare service, so you will know what was the exact fiat value of the Ethereum transaction at the moment you have made it.

genesis-mining-ether-cloud-mining

It the last few days we have seen a rapid increase in price of the Ethereum’s Ether coins on the exchanges with the price of 1 Ether coin trying to reach the $3 USD mark and getting closer and close to the price of Litecoin. This has sparked a lot of user interest among users that are new to Ethereum and that have not yet mined it with their GPUs, so we’ve seen a lot of new miners joining the Ethereum mining and a lot of interest in cloud mining for Ethereum as well. AMD GPUs are generally doing better than Nvidia-based ones for mining Ethereum, though you can mine with both. For the moment the only service that is offering Ethereum cloud mining is Genesis Mining with 1 year mining contracts starting at $17.99 USD per MHS. The minimum contract you can purchase is 3 MHS and each contract includes all fees in the price of the hashrate, so there is no additional maintenance fee associated with it. The good news is that you can get an extra 5% discount from the regular price by using our coupon code CryptoMiningBlog5 during the checkout.

In the last few days Ethereum (ETH) has been on the rise even though the price of Bitcoin has dropped below $400 USD, we’ve seen ETH rise over $2 USD and surpassing Litecoin, fighting for the second place with Ripple, right after Bitcoin in terms of Market Capitalization. It is still not very clear what is the reason of the peak we are seeing, but if you haven’t been paying enough attention to Ethereum, then now you might want to get up to speed.
