Many people have started to buy and trade cryptocurrencies in 2018, some earning large amounts of money. What a lot of people have overlooked though is that they'll likely have to pay tax on these earnings, with reports of few Americans reporting their crypto holdings days before their April 17th tax deadline.

This guide will go through what is considered a tax year in various countries l...

In early 2018 Bitcoin's price has been very volatile, dropping by as much as $2,000 (25%) in a single day on the 5th/6th Feb. Equally on the 12th April 2018 we saw the opposite of this, where Bitcoin's price went up by $800 in less than an hour (an increase of 11%).

This 12th April increase in particular had a lot of people curious as to what caused it. Was is some news event, or maybe ma...

On the 4th April 2018, a post was made on Bitcointalk forums about an exploit in Verge (XVG). Specifically that someone has found a way to mine blocks in Verge much faster than normal, at a rate of one block per second, causing many new Verge to be created and given to the malicious person/group behind this.

This guide will explain what's happened here, why it happened, and possible futur...

On the 6th April 2018, Monero went through a hard-fork where it changed it's mining algorithm to become resistant to ASIC Cryptonight miners.

On the 3rd April 2018, Bitmain released a new ASIC miner for Ethash, used by coins like Ethereum and Ethereum Classic. This miner is called the Antminer E3, and offers 180MH/s of hashpower at 800W.

This guide will go through risks associated with the Antminer E3, comparing it against current GPU mining hardware, and summarise a potential Ethereum hard-fork/change to proof-of-stake.

We posted a guide in late March 2018 explaining what the Antminer X3 was, and went through why it was a very high-risk ASIC miner to buy. We're now approaching the 6th April 2018, the date when the X3 profitability will see a significant decrease.

This guide will go through the timeline of events leading to this, and why by May 2018 most coins based on Cryptonight will have become ASIC-re...

In late March 2018, many companies released ASIC miners for the CryptoNight proof-of-work algorithm. The most well known of these is the Antminer X3, but it isn't the only one that was released. Companies like Halong Mining and PinIdea also released ASICs for CryptoNight.

This guide will go through alternative ASICs to the Antminer X3, comparing them against the cost, hashrate and power o...
