What is Bitcoin

1589 - What is Bitcoin 2

Money as a concept has changed over the years. After gold, the world has created different currencies. Now there is virtual currency like Bitcoins that is cheaper and safer to manage. Will blockchain technology replace the traditional printed currency, nobody knows but many consumers and businesses are ready to exploit the new digital currency.

Over the last few years, blockchain technology has become a trending topic in the computer world. The public started to know about blockchain through Bitcoin; however there is more to blockchain than cryptocurrency. One of the more well-known implementations of blockchain technology is bitcoin, a digital payment system. Bitcoin is a new currency that was created in 2009 by an anonymous person hiding under an alias of Satoshi Nakamoto. Transactions are made with no middlemen, without banks, without transaction fees and without providing the real name. Bitcoins can be used for payments and valid transactions instead of real money but the system ensures that users do not spend money that does not belong to them. However, will blockchain technology eventually replace the traditional business models?

Bitcoins are created as reward for payment processing work in which users offer their computing power to verify and record payments into a public ledger. The activity is called mining and miners are rewarded with transaction fees and newly created bitcoins. Bitcoins can be exchanged for other currencies, products and services.

What is Bitcoin Mining?

what-is-bitcoin-mining - 2

Bitcoin Mining is a decentralized computational process that serves two purposes and are as follows: (1) It confirms transactions in a trustful manner when enough computational power (effort) is devoted to block; (2) It creates (issues) new bitcoins in each block. It goes like this, first it verifies if transactions are valid. Then it will bundle transactions in a block. Next, it selects the header of the most recent block and insert into the new block as a hash. Fourth, it solves the proof of work problem. And lastly, when the solution is found, the new block is added to the local blockchain and propagated to the network.

Proof-of-Work is a method to ensure that the information (the new block) was difficult (costly, time consuming) to be made. On the other hand, mining difficulty is a measure of how difficult it is to find a hash below the target value (a 256-bit number) during the Proof of Work.

Cloud mining or cloud hashing enables users to purchase mining capacity of hardware in data centres. Bitcoin cloud mining enables people to learn Bitcoins without managing hardware, software, electricity, bandwidth or other offline issues. Then all Bitcoin mining is done remotely in the cloud. This enables the owners to not deal with any of the hassles usually encountered when mining bitcoins such as electricity, hosting issues, heat, installation or upkeep trouble.

A Simple Guide to Getting Hired in Thailand

Getting Hired in Thailand

Having a stable job brings food to the table and in a society that is built around money you can only understand why having a stable job is important. Right now is a good time for employment in Thailand and if you are looking for work, this infographic research will focus on how you can get hired in Thailand. Thailand today is considered as a development success story and in less than a generation, the country has managed to become an upper-income economy from a middle-income economy. It had even survived the 1997 financial crisis quite beautifully. The country has sustained its growth starting from the 80s up to this time and has managed to pull out millions of people from poverty.

In the last 30 years, poverty has been reduced from 67% in 1986 to 11% in 2014 and along with this, income has considerably risen. Thailand today is one of Asia’s major economies with the lowest poverty rate. The unemployment rate is attributed to the developments in education (with many employed in high value jobs), family planning and increased life expectancy. This means that Thailand is in need of workers and is offering vast employment opportunities. Finding a job in Thailand is now easier than ever for both locals and foreigners.

Every Year 5,300 people die in The Netherland, What are You Doing about It?

BHVNederland

This infographic is about the differences between heart attack, heart failure, and cardiac arrest. With a cardiac arrest, the heart stops knocking and pumping blood around due to serious arrhythmias. The organs do not receive blood, so also no more oxygen. Within seconds the victim gets unconscious and (normal) breathing stops. A cardiac arrest happens in The Netherlands every day to 42 people outside the hospital. In a myocardial infarction (also known as heart attack) the coronary artery of the heart is blocked. A part of the heart receives no blood, so also no oxygen. In The Netherlands every day 78 people get a heart attack. The hearts of people with heart failure pumps less powerful. In the Netherlands 130,000 people live with heart failure.

In 2014 in The Netherlands 5,300 people died due to a heart attack, 545 died in a car incident and 52 people died in a house fire. Every day in The Netherlands 42 people get a sudden cardiac arrest outside the hospital, and 78 people a heart attack. BHV Nederland is a company in The Netherlands which is specialized in organizing courses for CPR, emergency response officers and first aid (although they sell AED’s occasionally their core business is education).

In most parts of the world, there is considerable growth in the real estate industry finally recovering after the 2008 Financial Crisis.

With luxury homes, you should know that it’s not all about great curb appeal. Luxury is lifestyle and luxury homes are designed not only to provide great appeal but comfort as well mixing it up with a tad bit of fantasy. You should know that luxury can vary from place to place so a luxurious home in one place may not be so luxurious in another. Luxury homes are more technologically advanced featuring smart features and smart home systems that only add to the comfort, convenience and security of the house.

Riding Safely on the Road with Effective Motorcycle Safety

Riding Safely on Holidays

There is no doubt that motorcycles have high performance capabilities. However, they are also a lot less stable and less visible than other vehicles which make them more prone to accidents and crashes. It is common knowledge that visibility is the key to road safety but there are other ways to keep safe on the road. This infographic research will focus on motorcycle safety.

One of the most common reasons for motorcycle fatalities is that most motorcycle drivers fail to wear the proper motorcycle gear that would help protect them in the case of accidents. Serious head injury is the most likely cause of death for motorcyclists which makes wearing helmets important as they are 37% effective in preventing motorcycle death and 67% effective in preventing brain injury. According to the federal government, the number of motorcycle deaths is 26 times more than that of cars back in 2013. If you would consider the fatalities for every type of motor vehicle, you would notice that the number has considerably fallen from 44,525 deaths in 1975 to 32,675 in 2014. However, with motorcycle deaths, you can see a noticeable increase from 3,106 motorcycle deaths in 1975 to 4,295 in 2014.
