With mining profits diminishing lately it is always a good idea to be on a lookout for new and profitable coins to mine, regardless if you are using GPUs or ASIC miners. So you might want to give the Coin Claculators service a try and see if you can find something new and interesting. It tracks close to 300 crypto coins and can mining profitability calculators available for GPU miners with presets for the hashrate for the more common AMD and Nvidia GPUs as well as ASIC miners with presets for S9, L3+ and D3. You can of course also set your own hashrates for each algorithm, so you are not limited only to the presets available, though they help for a quick check. There is also a Dual Mining profit calculator, however it is a bit limited in functionality. There are also individual mining profitability calculators available for the supported coins for when you are not looking what is most profitable to be mined. There is also a mobile app available for Android on the Google play store (no iOS for now), so you might check it out as well if interested.

The website BitcoinWisdom has been available for a lot of time and many people that have been into crypto long term have used it or are even still using it, however it seems that the support and updates of that website have been missing for a long time. It seems that somebody has cloned the original Bitcoin Wisdom and has provided an alternative that brings most of the functionality of the original website and everything works better with more exchanges and trading pairs.

The new BitcoinWisdom.io website lists data from Bitfines, Bithumb, Binance, WEX, Exmo and GDAX and there are a lot of crypto trading pairs available from the supported exchanges, so you might want to check it out. We could still use some more extra data from popular EUR exchanges such as Bitstamp and Kraken in order to make it even more usable, still it works well as a complimentary data source even if it cannot completely replace the original.

Brave is trying to attract more users with yet another monthly giveaway of about $500,000 USD in promotional Basic Attention Tokens (BAT) to Brave desktop browser users. The new BAT grant program gives users approximately 5 USD in promotional BAT. The grants, which must be used for the benefit of content creators within 90 days, come from the User Growth Pool (UGP), a fund of 300 million tokens set up to give users and publishers an incentive to join the BAT platform. Users can claim the grants via a notification they will receive or by checking the status of the integrated Payments settings or preferences panel in the latest Brave browser (version 0.22.727). The grants can be used to support users’ favorite sites, YouTube channels, and Twitch streamers.

Brave currently has 2.7 million monthly active users and over 16,000 creators (including YouTube and Twitch accounts) have joined the Brave Publishers program. Brave users donate to creators with BAT they purchase and load into Brave Payments, or that are gifted to them from BAT grants. Previously, $1M equivalent in BAT was allocated to creators from BAT originally gifted from the UGP in January 2018 to Brave users.
