Genesis Mining Super Mining Rigs That Are Already Set Up & Running

Genesis Mining is a Cryptocurrency cloud mining service that offers an easy and safe way to purchase hashpower without having to deal with complex hardware and software setup. We offer hosted cryptocurrency mining services and a variety of mining related solutions to small and large scale customers. The combination of our algorithmic trading framework, mining infrastructure, and proprietary mining farm-management software, Genesis Hive, quickly made us an industry leader.

Our team of mining experts with extensive knowledge of the digital currency sector specializes in building the most efficient and reliable mining facilities. Genesis Mining is also the founding partner of Logos Fund, the first ever Bitcoin Mining Fund, which targets professional investors looking to gain access to Bitcoin’s and various other digital assets’ potential. Our service was founded by the end of 2013 and with now over 2.000.000 users we are the world‘s leading multi-algorithm cloud mining service.

It’s quick and very easy! As soon as we receive your payment your contract will be added to your profile, and you can immediately start mining. Depending on the blockchain algorithm you select and the associated mining service agreement you enter into, you can either mine native cryptocurrencies directly or allocate your hashpower to other cryptocurrencies (marked with AUTO), and even choose a specific allocation for them. For example: 60% LTC, 20% BTC and 20% DOGE. The first mining output is released after 48 hours, and then a daily mining output will follow.

Remark: Every day of mining will be processed and sent to your account in the following 24 hours after the mining day is over. For security reasons, we do not disclose the exact location of our mining farms. As of April 2015, we are operating several mining farms that are located in Europe, America and Asia. Electricity cost and availability of cooling are important, but not the only criteria. See our Datacenters page for more information.

We do not publish a list of pools we are using. Our main criteria for a good pool are: reliability, fee structure and reject rate. Going forward we will solo-mine a few coins (and pass the fee savings to our users!).

Our internal policy is: “be a good crypto citizen”. This means, that we will at least use two different pools (in some cases we use up to four) for each coin. This is to preserve the decentralized nature of the crypto networks! If we become aware that a pool is getting close to 50% share, we will switch away from it and use a backup instead.

Since third-party calculators are a popular way of estimating mining performance, we have set up a Performance estimation tutorial on how to make your own calculations, along with the general explanation about potential mining scenarios.

When evaluating the benefits, please keep in mind that mining, and using our service, is subject to a (if applicable to your mining plan) which must be deducted from the daily mining rewards.

The results of cryptocurrency mining highly depend on the price and the network difficulties of the given cryptocurrencies that you are mining. Neither of those can be predicted, so each customer must make an independent decision about the benefits of cryptocurrency mining and, in doing so, should consider the risks and their own circumstance when choosing whether to mine.

You must allocate your hashpower in order to determine the cryptocurrency received for your mining output. If no allocation has been made, the mining output will default to the following for the given blockchain algorithm:

  • SHA-256 contract – Bitcoin
  • X11 contract – Dash
  • Ethash contract – Ethereum
  • CryptoNight contract – Monero/Monero Classic
  • Scrypt – Litecoin
  • Equihash – Zcash

(*) “Genesis Mining Advanced Allocation” (special feature):
It allows you to get mining outputs in many different coins even if they are not mined directly by a certain algorithm. For example, you can get mining outputs in BTC while mining with an X11 algorithm! That is possible by mining the DASH coin directly, which is then automatically swapped to BTC by our algorithmic framework. The Allocation function is designed for customers to receive delivery of their mining results in their preferred cryptocurrency. We call it “mining BTC the smart way”. The same technique is also used to get mining results in LTC with a SHA-256 contract, etc.

Don’t Forget About Cryptocurrency Like Bitcoin At Tax Time

Form 1040 may look similar to last year’s return, but there’s one key difference that’s attracting attention: a question about cryptocurrency.

As I reported late last year, early drafts of Form 1040 reflected a new question on the top of Schedule 1, Additional Income and Adjustments to Income (downloads as a PDF). Schedule 1 is used to report income or adjustments to income that can’t be entered directly on the front page of form 1040.

The new question made it onto the final version of Schedule 1:

The question asks: At any time during 2019, did you receive, sell, send, exchange, or otherwise acquire any financial interest in any virtual currency? 

The placement of the question is important. I believe the question is intended to be so conspicuous that it makes it difficult for any taxpayer to argue that they didn’t know that it was necessary to report cryptocurrency transactions.

The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has made no secret of the fact that it believes that taxpayers are not properly reporting cryptocurrency transactions. An IRS dive into the data showed that for the 2013 through 2015 tax years, the IRS processed, on average, just under 150 million individual returns annually. Of those, approximately 84% were filed electronically. When IRS matched data collected from forms 8949, Sales and Other Dispositions of Capital Assets, which were filed electronically, they found that just 807 individuals reported a transaction using a property description likely related to bitcoin in 2013; in 2014, that number was only 893; and in 2015, the number fell to 802.

But… so what? If you skip over the question or answer it wrong, you can still claim that you made a mistake, right?

Here’s the thing. Even though the question is new, this kind of question certainly isn’t. Tax professionals have watched taxpayers struggle before when answering a similar question about offshore accounts and interests at the bottom of Schedule B. This one:

The IRS can and has taken the position that willfully failing to check the box related to offshores accounts and interests on Schedule B can form the basis for criminal prosecution. Failing to check the box by accident can still result in expensive headaches and draconian penalties. I fully expect a similar result when it comes to cryptocurrency.

So why all the fuss over this new question? The IRS has made cryptocurrency compliance a priority. Last year, the IRS mailed letters to more than 10,000 taxpayers who might have failed to report income and pay the resulting tax from virtual currency transactions or did not accurately report their transactions. This wasn’t unexpected since the IRS campaigns announced in 2018 that they were making noncompliance related to the use of virtual currency one of their targeted compliance campaigns.

In 2014, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) issued guidance to taxpayers (downloads as a PDF), making it clear that virtual currency like Bitcoin and Ethereum will be treated as capital assets, provided they are convertible into cash. In simple terms, this means that capital gains rules apply to gains or losses. (You can read more on the taxation of cryptocurrencies here.)

It’s clear that the IRS is getting serious about cryptocurrency reporting. If you have questions about how and what to report, don’t stay silent: ask your tax professional for more information.

Years ago, I found myself sitting in law school in Moot Court wearing an oversized itchy blue suit. It was a horrible experience. In a desperate attempt to avoid anything like that in the future, I enrolled in a tax course. I loved it. I signed up for another. Before I knew it, in addition to my JD, I earned an LL.M Taxation. While at law school, I interned at the estates attorney division of the IRS. At IRS, I participated in the review and audit of federal estate tax returns. At one such audit, opposing counsel read my report, looked at his file and said, “Gentlemen, she’s exactly right.” I nearly fainted. It was a short jump from there to practicing, teaching, writing and breathing tax. Just like that, Taxgirl® was born.

Something Very Strange Is Going On With Bitcoin And BTC Google Searches

Bitcoin and cryptocurrency prices are well known to be closely tied to media and general public interest–-though that could be changing.

The bitcoin price has been climbing so far this year, rising some 200% since January, though has recently plateaued at around $10,000 per bitcoin after peaking at more than $12,000 in June.

Now, it appears Google searches for bitcoin and BTC, the name used by traders for the bitcoin digital token, could be being manipulated–-possibly in order to move the bitcoin price.

Bitcoin Miner Canaan Allows $400 Million IPO Application to Lapse – Osato Avan-Nomayo

1.jpg

Bitcoin mining equipment maker, Canaan Creative, on Thursday (November 15, 2018) allowed its Initial Public Offering (IPO) filing to elapse. Reports suggest that the company will shelve its IPO plans at least for the remainder of the year.

According to Reuters, Canaan Creative allowed its $400 million IPO listing to expire. This expiration comes six months after the company submitted its filing to the Hong Kong Stock Exchange (HKEX).

Inside sources revealed that regulators from the HKEX had multiple issues with the company’s business model. Unless the Hangzhou-based Canaan refiles its IPO application along with updated financial information, the IPO might not happen again in 2018.

At the outset, Canaan’s projections for the public sale stood at $1 billion. However, the company revised its target, lowering it considerably to $400 million. This news comes amidst Wednesday’s drop that saw cryptocurrency prices fall by an average of 12 percent.

Canaan isn’t the only Bitcoin mining hardware maker planning a public sale. Both Ebang and industry behemoth, Bitmain also have pending IPO filing applications with the HKEX. An inside source told Reuters that Ebang’s IPO was unlikely to happen in 2018.

For Bitmain, the company continues to respond to questions from both the HKEX and Hong Kong’s financial regulator – the Securities and Futures Commission (SFC).

In August, Bitcoinist reported that Bitfury, another Bitcoin mining company also planned to pursue an IPO.

Meanwhile, in Hong Kong, recent reports suggest that financial regulators plan to pursue a more robust regulatory landscape for the local cryptocurrency industry. In October, former SFC chief, Carlson Tong Ka-shing said the SFC’s commitment was to adequately regulate the industry without harming the progress of cryptocurrency companies.

For Tong, investor protection ranked highest among the list of priorities for the SFC when it came to cryptocurrency regulation. Echoing Tong’s sentiments, Ashley Alder also recently noted that the SFC wanted to offer complete protection for virtual currency investors in Hong Kong.

Presently, the SFC is trying to expand its regulatory oversight to cover cryptocurrency businesses whether they deal in securities or not. Also, the SFC is mulling the creation of licensing requirements for cryptocurrency exchange platforms operating in Hong Kong.

Do you think any of these Bitcoin Mining firms will be able to conduct an IPO anytime soon? Let us know your thoughts in the comment section below.
