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.

The Baikal Miner BK-X ASIC miner has received an update adding support for two more crypto algorithms, namely Nist5 and X11Ghost, bringing the total number of supported algos to 7 with more promised to be added later on. The Baikal Miner BK-X was originally introduced as Baikal Giant X10 and it had support fonly for X11, Quark and Qubit algorithms, but since then support for Myraid-Groestl, Skein and now Nist5 and X11Ghost has been added with even more apparently coming. In order to get access tot the two new mining algorithms you will need to update the OrangePI Zero controller that the miner uses to the new version 1.2 on your Giant X10 or BK-X ASIC miner.

On a side note Baikal Miner has been running some “crazy” sales on their other two ASIC miners, The Baikal Miner BK-N for Cryptonight and Cryptonight-lite is in pay 1 get 5 sale ($1900 USD) and the Baikal Miner BK-B for Blake256R14/Blake256R8/Blake2B/Lbry/Pascal is in pay 1 get 2 sale ($2699 USD). This is a hint that there is not much demand for the two devices apparently, especially for the Cryptonight ASIC where the competition is very big and coins have already started switching to the new CryptonightV7 like Monero (XMR) leading the way that is already not mineable with these devices.

Here you can find the updated OrangePI Zero image that you need to flash on the device…
