All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
The Bitcoin cloud mining service GigaHash has introduced a new cloud mining plan called GHASH3 introducing about 50 THS more worth of hashrate available for purchase. The price per GHS for the new Bitcoin cloud mining plan is 0.00217000 BTC or $0.52 USD which is a bit higher than previous GHASH2 plans (some hashrate is still available for these as well), but the daily maintenance fee is now lowered for the new plans to just $0.0007 USD per GHS per day. There is also apparently another new cloud mining plan to be available soon called PPC1 for Peercoin SHA256 cloud mining with the same rice parameters as the GHASH3 Bitcoin cloud mining plans.
The cloud mining company Genesis Mining is going to be adding a new alternative crypto coin to the list of coins you can mine with the cloud hashrate you can purchase from them. After a survey among the company’s customers to see what are the most wanted coins to be added, the list was shortened to just 4 crypto coins – Ziftrcoin (ZRC), Peercoin (PPC), Primecoin (XPM) and Zetacoin (ZET). Out of these four two are using SHA-256 – Zetacoin and Peercoin, so you should be able to mine them directly and the two others – Ziftrcoin and Primecoin are using different algorithms, so you will be able to get paid in them if any of them gets chosen as the new addition.
So we come to the point where you can vote in a poll to choose the coin you want from the four top choices and get the chance to win some cloud mining hashrate. Three people from all who vote will be getting 500 GHS lifetime cloud mining hashrate each at the service (the winner will be picked randomly). All you have to do is cast your vote in the special poll at the official Facebook page of Genesis Mining and you have until Friday May 22, 2015 at 11 pm CET to do so.
Sustainable. Secure. Peercoin is here. Through an innovative minting algorithm, the Peercoin network consumes far less energy, maintains stronger security, and rewards users in more sustainable ways than other cryptocurrencies. Peercoin’s original innovation is the proof-of-stake/proof-of-work hybrid system. Like other cryptocurrencies, initial coins can be mined, but the core network is maintained by coin holders, rather than the fastest pool. Maintaining the network through the hybrid proof-of-work/proof-of-stake algorithm reduces the risk of the Selfish-Miner Flaw, 51% attacks, and the block bloating that have been used to exploit other currencies.
