Crypto Playing Cards is a new project launched in Switzerland by a cryptocurrency believer, a project that wants to help adoption by getting the general population acquainted with cryptocurrencies. You can use the cards to play Poker, Bridge, Blackjack or just about any card game with the Crypto Playing Cards, they just feature custom crypto art and are not a deck for a special crypto game or something like that. Instead of playing spades, hearts, diamonds or clubs, you’re now playing with Bitcoin, Ethereum, Litecoin and NEO. Every suit has different dominant colors and each character was specifically designed to proudly represent its cryptocurrency. The playing cards are crafted from premium cardstock and coated with extra smooth finish.

A single deck of the Crypto Playing Cards is priced at 14.90 CHF (Swiss Franc) which roughly translates the same amount in USD plus a couple of Francs for the shipping. You can purchase multiple decks with a slight discount if you want to have some for gifts to friends for Christmas for instance. The supported methods of payment are via PayPal, with a Credit Card (Stripe), payment with Nano via BrainBlocks, you can of course also use Bitcoin (BTC) as well as any of the following altcoins: Stellar (XLM), Ripple (XRP), NEO, Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC) or GAS.

The NiceHash service for leasing and renting crypto hashrate has announced the addition of a new crypto algorithm to their list of supported algos – the Zhash algorithm or Equihash with parameter set 144,5. This algorithm is currently used as a PoW algorithm with Bitcoin Gold (BTG), Anon (ANON) and BitcoinZ (BTCZ) and other projects. The Zhash algorithm works by increasing the hardware requirements of Equihash to make the development of an ASIC appliance less viable and to put back GPU mining in control for the projects using this algorithm. Aside from support for Zhash on the marketplace for hashrate, mining Zhash is also supported through the latest NiceHash Miner Legacy (1.9.0.8) as well as third party miners of course.

Another popular service for renting and leasing mining rigs Mining Rig Rentals has been offering Zhash (Equihash 144,5) for quite some time, though the market there is usually smaller compared to what NiceHash is capable of providing in terms of hashrate. Apart from Zhash this service also offers support for Equihash 96,5 as well as Equihash 192,7 and Equihash 210,9 so if you need any of these you can check the MRR service as well.
