KFC to 3D Print Chicken Using Lab-Grown 'Meat of the Future'

Nobody does chicken—or food innovation—like KFC. The fast food chain has partnered with 3D Bioprinting Solutions in Russia to develop the world’s first laboratory-produced chicken nuggets.

Inspired by the growing demand for animal alternatives, KFC wants to craft the “meat of the future.” The project, according to a press release, aims to forge something “as close as possible in both taste and appearance” to the restaurant’s original product, while remaining environmentally friendly.

“Our experiment in testing 3D bioprinting technology to create chicken products can also help address several looming global problems,” Raisa Polyakova, general manager of KFC Russia, said in a statement. “We are glad to contribute to its development and are working to make it available to thousands of people in Russia and, if possible, around the world.”

A final product should be ready for testing this fall in Moscow, where folks are working on additive bioprinting technology that uses chicken cells and plant material to reproduce the taste and texture of meat, “almost” without involving animals. Biomeat has the same microelements of the original product without any additives (typically used in the production, processing, treatment, packaging, transportation, or storage), making it cleaner and more ethical, considering the process does not harm animals.

“3D bioprinting technologies, initially widely recognized in medicine, are nowadays gaining popularity in producing foods such as meat,” said Yusef Khesuani, co-founder of 3D Bioprinting Solutions. “In the future, the rapid development of such technologies will allow us to make 3D-printed meat products more accessible and we are hoping that the technology created as a result of our cooperation with KFC will help accelerate the launch of cell-based meat products on the market.”

KFC cites a study by the American Environmental Science & Technology Journal. It suggests growing meat from cells is also believed to have minimal negative impact on the environment, cutting energy consumption by more than half, reducing greenhouse gas emissions 25 fold, and using 100 times less land than traditional farm-based production. “At KFC, we are closely monitoring all of the latest trends and innovations and doing our best to keep up with the times by introducing advanced technologies to our restaurant networks,” Polyakova added. “Crafted meat products are the next step in the development of our ‘restaurant of the future’ concept.”

12 Ways You Can Absolutely Make Money Online

For many people, making money online would be an absolute dream come true. If they could find a way to make money with a website or some other online venture, they could quit their job to focus on entrepreneurship, spend more time with their family, and finally take back control of their time and their lives.

The crazy thing is, earning money online isn’t a pipe dream. I have been doing it for nearly a decade now with my website Good Financial Cents. I also know thousands of other people who are earning money online their own way with websites, courses, or unique marketing strategies.

Now, here’s the good news. The majority of online revenue strategies aren’t that complicated. Like any business venture, your online income takes time to grow. You need to be willing to devote the time and energy required to get your idea off the ground, and you need grit to stick with it even if your journey is slow when you first start out.

If you’re angling to earn money online but aren’t sure where to start, here are several of the best and most realistic strategies to consider:

#1: Google Adsense

If you’ve visited any website, you’ve seen Google ads. These ads are everywhere, and for good reason. Not only are they easy to set up on any basic website, but they can be lucrative once your website starts bringing in a steady amount of traffic.

One of the cool things about Google AdSense is that it’s so easy to get set up. If you have a blog or website, you can sign up for a free Google AdSense Account. From there, Google will give you a unique code that you will paste onto your website. Google takes it from there, tracking your page views, traffic, and earnings on your behalf. There is no upkeep or maintenance to get this thing going, which makes it a no-brainer if you have a website already.

How much will you make? I think my best month with Google AdSense was almost $5,000 over the last ten years. That amazing month blew my mind since it was actually near the beginning of my blogging journey. When you go from making zero to $5,000 in a month, that will rock your world. For me, it also got me even more excited because I knew there were other ways to monetize.

#2: Affiliate Marketing

Whether you have a website or are still dreaming up ideas for a blog, you can also look into affiliate marketing. With affiliate marketing, you partner with brands and businesses within the content of your website. If you mention a product or service, you link to that produce or service using a unique affiliate code you received when you signed up for that particular affiliate program. From there, you’ll make money any time someone buys a product or service through your link.

Generally speaking, you’ll want to partner with affiliates that are related to your blog concept. Since I’m a financial advisor, I have focused a lot of my affiliate energy on financial products like savings accounts, credit cards, and investment accounts.

In addition to signing up for individual affiliate programs, you can also sign up for an affiliate ad network that offers a ton of different affiliates in one place. That way, you can see what works and what doesn’t work over time.

If you’re looking for inspiration, my friend Michelle Schroeder-Gardner of the website Making Sense of Sense has become the expert on all things affiliate marketing. Michelle earns more than $100,000 per month from her blog and the bulk of her income comes from affiliate sales. Michelle has had so much success with affiliate marketing that she even has her own course called Making Sense of Affiliate Marketing.

While Michelle works with a ton of affiliates in the financial services industry, one of her biggest affiliates is a blog hosting company called Bluehost. This just goes to show that you can make money with nearly any affiliate company or product if you know your audience and build up enough traffic to create sales.

#3: Consulting

Another way to make money online is via consulting. If you’re an expert in any field, you could potentially find people willing to pay you to counsel them on their personal or business goals. You might think you’re not important enough to consult for big companies, but you could be surprised at the types of expertise people will pay for.

My colleague Robert Farrington of The College Investor is a good example of someone who consulted online on the side in an unlikely industry. Robert told me that, after he had been blogging for a few years, a couple of brands reached out to him to ask him for help with social media and online marketing.

Robert said he did an average of 4-6 of these gigs per year for a while depending on his schedule and the work involved. The best part is, he charged a flat rate that usually worked out to around $100 per hour. And remember, this was pay he was earning to advise people on the best ways to use social media tools like Facebook and Pinterest to grow their brands.

If you want to start consulting but aren’t sure what steps to take next, you can also set up a free account through Clarity.fm. This website lets anyone who wants to offer consulting set up a free profile. Once your profile is set up, people will find you and book a session you’ll get paid for.

#4: Online Courses

If you have any skill you can teach others, it’s also possible to set up an online course you can market online. You can find online courses that teach anything from cooking to marketing or even freelance writing. Heck, I even offer my own course for financial advisors who want to take their businesses online— The Online Advisor Growth Formula.

Last year, I profiled my friend Joseph Michael of Easy Course Creation. Michael offers several different courses, including courses on a writing software called “Scrivener.” Over the years, Michael has earned six figures or more annually selling courses that help people achieve the kind of success he has earned.

Most people set up their online course through a platform like Teachable.com. With Teachable, you can upload your course materials and use the platform to manage customers and accept payments.

#5: Podcasting

Another way to make money online is by hosting an online podcast. I have the Good Financial Cents podcast to go along with my blog, and I use that platform to find new sponsors and advertisers all the time.

I still remember getting my first sponsor on the podcast and finding out they were willing to pay $8,000 for me to include a short clip at the beginning of each podcast for 90 days. That was insanely exciting to me at the time since I wasn’t sure I would be able to monetize my podcast that much at first.

However, there are tons of people making a lot more than me on their podcasts. Take the Entrepreneur On Fire Podcast hosted by John Lee Dumas. According to the show’s most recent income report, this podcast brought in a net income of over $400,000 in March 2018. Now, that’s crazy.

The key to getting ahead with podcasting is finding your niche, growing an audience, and then finding ways to monetize and connect with sponsors. This isn’t the easiest way to make money online since there are a lot of logistics that go into writing, recording, and editing a podcast, but it is still worth considering.

#6: Book Sales

While the publishing industry used to be heavy in print, you can complete the entire process of writing, publishing, and marketing a book online these days. Websites like Create Space will let you upload and take your book to print without getting a formal publisher involved, and you can even get your book on Amazon.com so people can buy it there.

A blogger I know named Joseph Hogue has a successful blog (My Work from Home Money) and a thriving book publishing business. Hogue has written several books he has published online to create an ongoing source of passive income. He says he averages about 685 books sold per month to bring in an average of $1,857 in revenue. Not bad, huh?

If you think you could write a book people would want to buy, this is a smart strategy to consider since the start-up costs can be minimal and you probably already have a computer and word processing software anyway.

#7: Lead Sales

Another way to make money online is by collecting leads. The main steps you need to complete to make lead sales work include setting up a website, getting traffic to that website, and making sure you’re collecting leads that someone will actually pay for.

Here’s a good example of how lead sales can work in real life: My second website, Life Insurance by Jeff, brings in a ton of traffic from people who are searching the web to find answers to life insurance questions. While I used to have the website set up so I could sell these people life insurance myself, it was a lot of work to process all the different requests and clients. As a result, I started selling the leads I gathered instead.

Basically, lead buyers are willing to pay for the personal information I gather from people who visit my website. This is a win-win for everyone since I get paid for the leads and my website visitors are connected with someone who can help them.

Keep in mind though, you can sell leads in many different industries —not just life insurance. Really, you just need to figure out a niche, build a website and traffic, and see how much you can get for the leads you collect.

#8: Freelance Writing

If you have writing skills and creative talent, it’s also possible to get paid to create online content. I don’t do this as much as I used to, but I am very aware of how viable this income stream is.

One blogger I know, Holly Johnson, actually makes over $200,000 per year creating content for other websites. And actually, that’s on top of the six figures she earns with her blog, Club Thrifty.

Holly told me she started writing content in 2011. At the time, she still worked a full-time job but created content online part-time to supplement her income. Over time, she was able to double and triple her rates until she could quit her full-time job to write. These days, she makes bank as a freelance writer and teaches others to do the same via her online course, Earn More Writing.

According to Johnson, the key to making it as a freelance writer is figuring out a niche, networking with people who might hire you, and delivering high quality content 100 percent of the time. While there are a ton of writing job boards to help you get started, she says it’s fairly easy to find starter writing jobs on websites like Upwork.com.

#9: Sponsored Posts

If you have a website or a large social media following, you can also make money by pursuing sponsored posts and ads. But, how does this work? Basically, companies are willing to pay bloggers and social media influencers to promote their products and services. If you have a platform, be it a blog or a huge Instagram following, you can cash in.

The first time I got a sponsored post for Good Financial Cents, I was totally blown away. I think I got paid only $100, but that was a lot of money to me at the time. Later on, however, I realized companies that wanted a sponsored post really just wanted a link from my website to their own site. For that reason, I started increasing my rates.

These days, I charge around $4,500 for a sponsored post. Plus, I clearly mark all sponsored content as an #ad to stay in compliance with Google’s terms and conditions. I also only promote companies I use or believe in.

But, I also know bloggers that get $20,000 for a sponsored post. That’s pretty crazy, but it just goes to show what is possible.

Keep in mind though, you don’t need a website to do sponsored content since you can also get paid if you have a lot of social media followers. My wife has a pretty big Instagram following, and she gets all kinds of sponsorships. Not only does she get paid in cash, but we get a lot of free stuff, too. We’ve received free rugs, free lights, and free carpet cleaners. She only promotes things she loves though, so this strategy works really well for her.

#10: Webinars

Need more ideas on how to make money online? Another strategy is using webinars to market your product, service, or course. I’ve done webinars to promote my financial planning practice and to drum up interest in my online course for financial advisors. With a webinar, you’re basically offering a lot of tips and advice for free — usually in a live format. At the end though, you pitch your paid product or service with the goal of securing a few deals.

Professional speaker Grant Baldwin uses webinars to market his courses on public speaking, including Get Booked and Paid to Speak. While Baldwin offers plenty of free tips during his webinar, he offers his course at the end for people who want to pay to learn more. And, a lot of times, his sales pitch works.

No matter what you’re selling, it’s not that hard to set up a webinar and attract people to sign up with a lead magnet or Facebook ads. Heck, you can probably find a free webinar on how to create your first webinar if you look hard enough.

#11: YouTube

YouTube is another platform that has made it possible for people to earn money online. There are a ton of YouTube channels out there on any topic if you can think of, and most of the people with a big following are earning some money in exchange for their videos and time.

Marine officer turned men’s fashion expert, Antonio Centeno has built a million dollar business from his YouTube channel, Real Men Real Style.

Last year, Forbes profiled some of the biggest players in the YouTube scene. According to the study, the top ten biggest grossing YouTube stars brought in $127 million from June 2016 to June 2017. The most popular, a gamer named DanTDM, earned $16.5 million of that on his own.

Will you earn that much? Probably not. However, you can start making money via YouTube using the platform’s own ad network or by getting sponsored posts. If you like doing videos, starting a YouTube channel can a fun way to earn some cash on the side.

#12: Build an Online Community

Last but not least, you can also earn money online by building an online community, although the monetization strategies you can pursue will vary a lot depending on your goals. You can build a community with a blog, for example. You can also build an online forum and charge people for membership. You could even build up a Facebook group and use your influence there to sell and promote products.

My good friends Shane and Jocelyn Sams have become experts in building online communities.  They have one right now for their website – Flipped Lifestyle. This community shows people how to create an online business and connects entrepreneurs who are pursuing similar dreams.

Prior to that group, they had an online community for teachers looking for lesson plans. That probably sounds pretty random, but it’s crazy the type of communities you can build and rally people around. If it’s something that you’re passionate about yourself and you want to connect with others that have that same passion, then an online community is something you should definitely consider.

The Bottom Line

There are a ridiculous number of ways to make money online and the ones I’ve covered here are just the tip of the iceberg. If you have time, a passion for almost anything, and at least some creative skill, you may be able to build an online income stream — or several — if you give it enough time.

But, don’t just take my word for it. If you look online, you’ll find thousands of success stories you can use for inspiration.

One day you could even create a success story of your own. But you’ll never know unless you try.

Bitcoin vs. Bitcoin Cash: What Is the Difference?

 

Bitcoin vs. Bitcoin Cash: An Overview

Since its inception, there have been questions surrounding bitcoin’s ability to scale effectively. Transactions involving the digital currency bitcoin are processed, verified, and stored within a digital ledger known as a blockchain. Blockchain is a revolutionary ledger-recording technology. It makes ledgers far more difficult to manipulate because the reality of what has transpired is verified by majority rule, not by an individual actor. Additionally, this network is decentralized; it exists on computers all over the world.

The problem with blockchain technology in the Bitcoin network is that it’s slow, especially in comparison to banks that deal with credit card transactions. Popular credit card company Visa, Inc. (V), for instance, processes close to 150 million transactions per day, averaging roughly 1,700 transactions per second. The company’s capability actually far surpasses that, at 65,000 transaction messages per second.1

How many transactions can the bitcoin network process per second? Seven.2 Transactions can take several minutes or more to process. As the network of bitcoin users has grown, waiting times have become longer because there are more transactions to process without a change in the underlying technology that processes them.

Ongoing debates around bitcoin’s technology have been concerned with this central problem of scaling and increasing the speed of the transaction verification process. Developers and cryptocurrency miners have come up with two major solutions to this problem. The first involves making the amount of data that needs to be verified in each block smaller, thus creating transactions that are faster and cheaper, while the second requires making the blocks of data bigger, so that more information can be processed at one time. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) developed out of these solutions. Below, we’ll take a closer look at how bitcoin and BCH differ from one another.

KEY TAKEAWAYS

  • Bitcoin is limited by transaction processing time, an issue which has caused rifts between factions within the bitcoin mining and developing communities.
  • Bitcoin Cash was started by bitcoin miners and developers concerned about the future of the bitcoin cryptocurrency, and its ability to scale effectively.
  • While bitcoin blocks are limited to 1 MB, BCH blocks are 8 MB.

 

Bitcoin

In July 2017, mining pools and companies representing roughly 80 percent to 90 percent of bitcoin computing power voted to incorporate a technology known as a segregated witness, called SegWit2x.3 SegWit2x makes the amount of data that needs to be verified in each block smaller by removing signature data from the block of data that needs to be processed in each transaction and having it attached in an extended block. Signature data has been estimated to account for up to 65 percent of data processed in each block, so this is not an insignificant technological shift. Talk of doubling the size of blocks from 1 MB to 2 MB ramped up in 2017 and 2018, and, as of February 2019, the average block size of bitcoin increased to 1.305 MB, surpassing previous records. By January 2020, however, block size has declined back toward 1 MB on average.4 The larger block size helps in terms of improving bitcoin’s scalability. In September 2017, research released by cryptocurrency exchange BitMex showed that SegWit implementation had helped increase the block size, amid a steady adoption rate for the technology.5

 

Bitcoin Cash

Bitcoin Cash is a different story. Bitcoin Cash was started by bitcoin miners and developers equally concerned with the future of the cryptocurrency and its ability to scale effectively. However, these individuals had their reservations about the adoption of a segregated witness technology. They felt as though SegWit2x did not address the fundamental problem of scalability in a meaningful way, nor did it follow the roadmap initially outlined by Satoshi Nakamoto, the anonymous party that first proposed the blockchain technology behind cryptocurrency. Furthermore, the process of introducing SegWit2x as the road forward was anything but transparent, and there were concerns that its introduction undermined the decentralization and democratization of the currency.

In August 2017, some miners and developers initiated what is known as a hard fork, effectively creating a new currency: BCH. BCH has its own blockchain and specifications, including one very important distinction from bitcoin. BCH has implemented an increased block size of 8 MB to accelerate the verification process, with an adjustable level of difficulty to ensure the chain’s survival and transaction verification speed, regardless of the number of miners supporting it.6

Bitcoin Cash is thus able to process transactions more quickly than the Bitcoin network, meaning that wait times are shorter and transaction processing fees tend to be lower. The Bitcoin Cash network can handle many more transactions per second than the Bitcoin network can. However, with the faster transaction verification time comes downsides as well. One potential issue with the larger block size associated with BCH is that security could be compromised relative to the Bitcoin network. Similarly, bitcoin remains the most popular cryptocurrency in the world as well as the largest by market cap, so users of BCH may find that liquidity and real-world usability is lower than for bitcoin.

The debate about scalability, transaction processing and blocks has continued beyond the fork which led to Bitcoin Cash. In November of 2018, for example, the Bitcoin Cash network experienced its own hard fork, resulting in the creation of yet another derivation of bitcoin called Bitcoin SV. Bitcoin SV was created in an effort to stay true to the original vision for bitcoin that Satoshi Nakamoto described in the bitcoin white paper while also making modifications to facilitate scalability and faster transaction speeds.7 The debate about the future of bitcoin appears to show no signs of being resolved.

The 5 Most Popular Ways To Earn Bitcoin

Popular Ways To Earn Bitcoin

Bitcoin has been on a bull run since its inception.

Of course, I am not ignoring its bearish days, but overall it has been bullish. This is evident from this Google Trends chart:

And let’s not forget that Bitcoin recently surpassed $5,000!

I am not the least bit surprised by this crazy run because the concept of truly decentralized, borderless, and uncensored digital money is revolutionary and worthy of this attention. Now more than ever, people around the world have started appreciating Bitcoin’s power.

Also for the citizens of some countries like ArgentinaVenezuelaZimbabwe, and Greece, the idea of having a currency that increases their purchasing power is unique and exciting.

Having learned this fact more and more, people are joining the realm of Bitcoin each and every day.

Some ways of getting Bitcoin are better than other ways, while some are even worse than scams. That’s why today, we’re going to discuss some of the legit and low-entry barrier ways to earn Bitcoin.

Top 5 Working Ways To Earn Bitcoin

1. Work For Bitcoin

Working for Bitcoin is one of the easiest and most legit ways to earn it.

Whether you are an engineer, designer, writer, singer, translator, editor, internet marketer, freelancer, or developer, you can start working for Bitcoin right now.

There are numerous platforms and websites that offer you bitcoins in exchange for your service.

Some of these platforms are:

2. Earning Bitcoin From Trading

Another legit and cost-effective way of earning bitcoins is through trading.

The idea is simple, but it takes a lot of awareness and analysis to be successful at this.

In this method, the basic concept is about diversifying and investing in various cryptocurrencies when they are cheap in price and then selling them when there is a significant price spike.

When you do this, you earn Satoshi by selling them for profit, and hence, earn more BTCs.

I myself have done this many times, and it works quite well in terms of ROI, but this not an investment pitch or advice… DIY (Do It Yourself) and DYOR (Do Your Own Research).

You can simply start by following and closely monitoring your favorite cryptos, and start buying them from various exchanges. Some of the bitcoin and altcoin exchangesthat we suggest you buy from are listed below.

On these exchanges, you will also find almost all altcoins:

Note: This list of exchanges starts with some of the easiest to use exchanges for newbies and moves toward some of the most advanced exchanges for advanced users.

3. Earn BTC By Lending

There is a saying – “You should put your money to work.”

So if you are already HODLing Bitcoin, you can put your money to work and earn some profit on it by lending it out. There are many peer-to-peer Bitcoin lending platforms that allow you to do this while giving you a decent 12%-18% return on your investment in the form of bitcoins.

I have already done a detailed write up on such Bitcoin P2P lending platforms.

But a word of caution: This space of lending is highly unregulated, so diligently choose the borrower to whom you want to lend your Bitcoin and strictly adhere to the platform policies to make sure you get your returns back.

4. Earn Bitcoin From Faucets

Another easy to start way of earning quick bitcoins is through Bitcoin faucets.

For those of you who don’t know what Bitcoin faucets are:

Bitcoin faucets are a reward system, in the form of a website or app, that dispenses rewards in the form of a satoshi, which is a hundredth of a millionth BTC, for visitors to claim in exchange for completing a captcha or task as described by the website. There are also faucets that dispense alternative cryptocurrencies.

Wikipedia

These faucets have you do menial tasks such as solving captchas, playing games, clicking on ads, or watching videos. For each task you do, you earn a little bit of Bitcoin.

Bittube is one such faucet, where you can earn Satoshis by watching YouTube videos.

You can find a list of popular Bitcoin faucets here.

But this way of earning isn’t really an option for people who are already involved with hectic, full-time jobs. That’s why I have kept this option at the bottom of the list.

5. Earn Bitcoin By Helping People

This is quite a revolutionary way of earning bitcoins, if you are good at offline/online research.

Bitfortip is a mobile and desktop platform that pays you for being helpful by giving you Bitcoin tips.

Their tagline is -“Tip Bitcoins as an incentive. Earn Bitcoins for being helpful.”

On this platform, anyone can ask for anything, and the answer provider gets Bitcoin tips in exchange for their answer.

For example, if I want to know where I can buy a pink, Persian cat in India, I can give a Bitcoin tip to whoever provides me with an answer

One thing which I really like about their platform is that they are available in 11 international languages. This provides a low-entry barrier for many people around the world.

See this example of a question asked:

Bitfortip

 

Easy Ways Of Earning Bitcoin

So with this, I will end my write-up here.

But before I go, I want to address one thing:

Why didn’t I talk about Bitcoin gambling or mining on this list?

I haven’t included these things because gambling isn’t legit and mining is now out of the reach of commoners due to huge mining farms and ASICs.

That said, if you want to get involved in mining, then you can join a cloud mining service like Genesis mining or Hashflare, or buy an ASIC from Bitmain.

Now it’s time to hear from you: Which method you are using to earn more bitcoins? How has your experience been? Did I miss any more super easy and effective ways to earn bitcoins? Do let me know your thoughts in the comments section below!

      If you’re completely new to the whole concept of cryptocurrency, getting started with mining your own Bitcoin can be a little daunting. The fact that majority of the mining utilities are command line-based, doesn’t help things either. But there’s a solution, and it’s called MultiMiner.

      Perhaps the easiest-to-use Bitcoin mining software, MultiMiner is a desktop application that’s chock-full of features. Available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, MultiMiner lets you switch mining devices (e.g. ASICs, FPGAs) between different cryptocurrencies (e.g. Litecoin, Bitcoin) without any effort. It uses the underlying mining engine to detect available mining hardware and lets you choose the coins you’d like to mine. MultiMiner has many advanced features such as automatic detection of network devices, as well as the ability to remotely monitor and control other MultiMiner rigs.

      An open-source project, MultiMiner is compatible with many mining devices. These include Block Erupter, BFL/Bitforce and HashBuster Micro.

    • 03

       Best for Customization: BFGMiner

      BFGMiner

      If you have a thing for tinkering and are looking for a customizable Bitcoin mining software, look no further than BFGMiner. Written in C, it’s a modular FPGA/ASIC miner that has dynamic clocking, monitoring and remote interface capabilities.

      BFGMiner features built-in stratum and getwork proxy server, and its heavily threaded code hands out work retrieval and work submission to separate threads, so that working services are not hindered. The program supports ‘getblocktemplate’ decentralized mining protocol (without proxy), and can preemptively generate work prior to the completion of existing work. BFGMiner comes with a watchog thread that can restart idle threads, but doesn’t crash the machine if they fail to respond. It displays summarized and discrete data statistics of requests, accepts, rejects, hw errors, and efficiency and utility. If there is hardware support, the program can monitor device temperature.

      BFGMiner has numerous device drivers for Bitcoin, including Drillbit Thumb and Eight, Twinfury USB stick miner, Ztex’s FPGA boards. There are also device drivers for scrypt, such as GAW War Machine and ZeusMiner units.

  • 04

     Best for Cross-Platform Usage: BitMinter

    BitMinter

    What makes BitMinter stand out from the crowd of similar tools is the fact that it has its own mining pool to work with. Its pool is also among the oldest in existence.

    BitMinter is the best solution if you’re looking for a truly cross-platform Bitcoin mining software. Compatible with Windows, Mac OS X and Linux, BitMinter’s client is based on the Java Network Launch Protocol (JNLP) and requires no installation. The program has a straightforward Graphical User Interface (GUI) that’s incredibly easy to understand. To get started, simply sign up to the mining pool on BitMinter’s website, configure your ASIC hardware as per the instructions and you’re good to go. The work is recorded in shifts, and 99 percent of the mining income is paid out to the users.

    Some of the ASICs supported by BitMinter (and its mining pool) include Butterfly Labs (except Monarch), Block Erupter USB (and other Icarus-compatible hardware), Chili, Red/Blue Fury and Antminer U1/U2.

  • 05

     Best for Cloud Mining: Miner-Server

    Miner-Server

    If you’ve decided to get into bitcoin mining, but aren’t yet ready to invest in expensive ASIC (Application Specific Integrated Circuit) miners, you can go for a cloud-based mining service. There are quite a few of them to choose from, but Miner-Server is definitely the best.

    When you get started with Miner-Server, you join a mining pool that also has other users, so the payouts are divided between all the participants. The service offers many packages, with a base price of just $0.14. Based on the package you select, you can get hashing power ranging from 250GH/s to 600,000GH/s. All the packages have a duration of one year, and you can check your earnings and other details anytime by logging to your account.

    If you refer Miner-Server to other users and they sign up through your reference, you get bonus hashpower. The service doesn’t charge any additional maintenance fees, so users get the full share of profits.

    Different cryptocurrencies have different command line mining tools and this makes managing them a chore. This is where EasyMiner comes into the picture, making things easier.

    EasyMiner is a graphical, open-source mining software that lets you mine Bitcoin, Litecoin and other cryptocurrencies. It supports minerd, cudaminer, ccminer, cgminer and ASIC mining for Bitcoin. EasyMaker comes with a dedicated “Moneymaker” mode, which is dedicated to mining of LTC on its own stratum pool. There’s also a “Solo” mode, which allows users to choose a pool of their own, as well as a custom hash algorithm corresponding to the coin they want to mine. EasyMiner uses the NHIL (Network Hardware ID Layer) protocol to provide an extra layer of security for the pool stratum and wallet architecture.

    It’s worth mentioning that EasyMiner only works on Windows.

  • 07

     Best for Centralized Mining Management: Awesome Miner

    Awesome Miner

    The above-discussed software works great if you just have one mining rig to work with. But if you want to manage multiple mining rigs, and that too of different types (e.g. ASICs, FPGAs), you need something a bit more robust. Enter Awesome Miner.

    Having powerful centralized mining management features, Awesome Miner supports more than 25 mining engines such as cgminer, bfgminer, xmrig, srbminer and sgminer. It’s also compatible with all popular mining algorithms, such as SHA-256, Scrypt, X11, Ethereum and Zcash. You can add, switch and manage pools for multiple miners in a single operation. Awesome Miner’s comprehensive dashboard lets you monitor the status and temperature of all ASIC and FPGA devices from one location. There’s also a built-in C# script engine, which can be used to create customized triggers and actions. You can use the program to set up privileged API access and configure default pools for all Bitmain Antminer ASICs in a single operation.

    Awesome Miner primarily works on Windows, but also offers a web front-end that can be accessed from any computer, tablet or smartphone.

7 of the Best Bitcoin Mining Hardware for 2018

Bitcoin-Mining-Hardware

Despite the profit potential of mining Bitcoin, your Bitcoin mining hardware’s upfront and energy costs can actually do harm to your bank account.

Picking the wrong hardware could cost you more money to operate than the amount of funds you earn mining Bitcoin with it.

To avoid losing a profit on your Bitcoin mining, we curated a list of the best Bitcoin mining hardware, with their price, hash rate, and energy consumption, to help you decide which hardware is best for you, no matter how much mining experience you have. Read on to find the right Bitcoin mining hardware for you.

7 of the Best Bitcoin Mining Hardware of 2018

1. Bitmain Antminer S9i

Since it’s considered the most popular Bitcoin mining hardware in the world, the Antminer S9 is entirely sold out on Bitmain’s website. Fortunately, though, Bitmain released the Antminer S9i for only $499 this May. The S9i boasts a hash rate of 14 TH per second and an energy consumption of 1,320 watts, which makes it one of the most efficient Bitcoin mining hardware out there.

If you’re an intermediate or expert miner trying to make a profit, the low upfront cost and high efficiency of the Antminer S9i could offset its somewhat lofty energy costs and help you make some money.

2. Halong Mining DragonMint T1

Out of all the Bitcoin mining hardware on the market, the DragonMint T1 has the highest hash rate of 16 TH per second. And with an energy consumption of 1480 Watts, which translates to a 0.075 Joules per Gigahash ratio, it’s the most powerful and efficient Bitcoin mining hardware out there.

Naturally, there’s a lot of demand for the DragonMint T1, so you’ll have to pay a hefty price of $2,729 to buy it. But if you’re an expert miner with low electricity costs, the power and efficiency of the DragonMint T1 could offset its high upfront cost and help you turn a profit.

3. Bitmain Antminer T9

With a hash rate of 12.5 TH per second and energy consumption of 1,576 Watts, the Antminer T9 is less powerful and efficient than the Antminer S9i, but it’s considered the more reliable option. It has higher quality chips compared to the S9i, so it’s more stable and doesn’t burn out as fast.

You should expect to pay around $500 for an Antminer T9. If you’re an expert miner who wants a durable mining hardware, this is a good option.

4. Pangolin Whatsminer M3X

Even though it uses the most power out of all the hardware on this list, requiring 2,050 watts of energy, the Whatsminer M3X is also one of the most powerful, possessing a hash rate of 12.5 TH per second.

The M3X is also more affordable than other powerhouse hardware, costing $1,022, which can offset its high energy costs and help you earn a profit. If you’re an expert bitcoin miner with below average electricity costs, this could be the best hardware for you.

5. Bitmain Antminer R4

Bitmain Antminer R4Picture Credit: ASIC Miner Value

Bitmain’s Antminer R4 falls right behind the Antminer S9i in terms of efficiency, with a hash rate of 8.7 TH per second and a small energy consumption of 845 watts. Another one of the R4’s best features is that it runs almost silently, making it the ideal hardware for mining bitcoins at home.

The R4’s convenience and efficiency comes at a cost, though — you’ll need to spend $2,999 to buy it on Amazon. If you’re a hobbyist or intermediate miner trying to make money at home, consider using the Antminer R4.

6. Avalon6

Avalon6 Bitcoin Mining HardwarePicture Credit: Buy Bitcoin Worldwide

Listed at $300 on Amazon, the Avalon6 is one of the most affordable Bitcoin mining hardware, and it’s the easiest to set up. But it also has low efficiency, possessing a hash rate of 3.5 TH per second and a relatively high energy consumption of 1050 watts.

Unless your electricity costs are extremely cheap, using the Avalon6 to mine more Bitcoin than it costs to operate is nearly impossible. The Avalon6 is best for beginners or hobbyists, since you’ll most likely never make a profit using the hardware.

7. Bitmain Antminer S7

Another solid Bitcoin mining hardware for beginners or hobbyists is the Bitmain Antminer S7. Its low $200 cost matches its low efficiency — it has a hash rate of 4.73 TH per second and energy consumption of 1293 watts. But if Bitcoin’s price shoots up and you can find extremely cheap electricity, it’s possible to make a profit using the hardware.

14 Ways To Actually Make Money From a Website!

When it comes to finding ways to monetize your website and making money online, the best thing I have found, is to use a variety of different techniques and to always be testing.

This blog makes money by selling our own online courses, software and other peoples products as an affiliate.

However, there are a lot more than two ways to make money online.

Every site needs to be treated differently.

It can take a while to work out how to best make money from a website. If something doesn’t work, try something else. Don’t just give up. The main reason people fail with blogging, isn’t because their idea or website is bad but because they give up too soon.

Here are the 14 ways you can monetize your website:

Best Ways To Make Money Online

1. Email Marketing

This is one of my favorite things to talk about because it’s just so powerful.

Building an email list can make you a lot of money, help you build a solid brand and of course help readers come back to your site, time after time.

Email marketing can be seen to make you money in a few different ways, such as direct email promotions, to deliver free reports that are monetized and my favorite, to drive traffic back to your site where you make money from other methods.

Gone are the days of finding it hard to get people to subscribe to your website.

A few years ago, we added a lightbox popup to IncomeDiary. Over night, we went from getting 20+ subscribers a day to well over 100.

At the time, most websites hated the idea of using popups because of the negative association people have with them. But these popups are different. Instead of popping up in another browser window, they popup as part of the page you are on. It was a lot less intrusive. Even better, it wasn’t to promote something spammy, but rather something of value to the reader.

After seeing the massive results, we decided to create our own software, so that other website owners can experience the same huge gains we have. We called it PopUp Domination.

At the start, some big names in the industry spoke out, saying they didn’t like them and wouldn’t use them. That didn’t last long, once they saw how well they worked. Now it seems like every site uses popups and despite that fact, they still perform so well!

Love it or hate it but a big reason for the success of popup opt-ins is down to this site you are on right now.

PopUp Domination works on any website. Has over 30 different designs, each pop is customizable to match any colour scheme. We offer a full 60 day, no questions asked, money back guarantee, so there is no good excuse not to give it a try.

Another list building technique you should be trying, is a squeeze page. A squeeze page is a dedicated page on your site to getting a visitor to sign up for your mailing list. You can see an example of a page like this by checking out our squeeze page for our Traffic Domination video! If you want to create amazing high converting squeeze pages (+ a lot more), check out Optimizepress.

Here is an example of a squeeze page we created with Optimizepress for our photography blog:

picture

In order to start collecting emails, you need to sign up for Aweber, which hosts your emails, which you use to send messages, create follow up campaigns, split test etc.

Personally I would say you should also get PopUp Domination, not because I own it but because it’s the best thing for email marketing. 63.9% of our email subscribers come from our popup.

Benefits:

  • Very direct way to market.
  • One email can make you thousands.
  • Anyone can do it.
  • Considered by most to be the no1 way to make money online consistently.
  • Can work on autopilot, if you setup a autoresponder series.

Drawbacks:

  • If subscribers don’t like your emails, they will unsubscribe.

2. Promote Products as an Affiliate

Another hot topic here on IncomeDiary.

We earn around 30% of our income from promoting products as an affiliate. What this means is we receive a commission when you buy something.

Don’t be alarmed, we promote what works for us, not because we will earn a commission. Fortunately nearly all products that exist, have an affiliate program. If you can’t find an affiliate program for a particular product, type product name + affiliate into Google. For example: PopUp Domination Affiliate. This should bring up their affiliate page, if they have an affiliate program.

In my experience, affiliate marketing works best when paired up with email marketing. Top marketers consistently agree, year after year, that email marketing is their most important income source. Combine that with affiliate marketing and you have a winner.

There are so many ways to go about finding a product to promote, it often depends on your industry. For a fitness blog, you could go to Clickbank, find a product about six pack abs and grab an advertising banner from their resources area and put it up on my website.

You could also do a blog post such as, 7 Best Exercises To Get Six Pack Abs, then at the end, promote the product.

We have a photography blog. One of the ways we use affiliate marketing is to promote the cameras and accessories that we use. All of these are available on Amazon. So we signed up for Amazons Associate program and receive a commission every time a customer buys something through our link. We also get a commission on anything else in their shoppingcart which is kind of them.

One of the best tips I can give you for maximizing affiliate sales, is to make sure that the products you are promoting, are as targeted as possible to your content. Most websites have advertising space, it could be on the sidebar, above or below blog posts. The mistake most website owners make is, always showing the same advert, on all pages.

Using condition marketing, we display different adverts depending on the topic of the page. This is done by creating conditions for different tags, categories and authors. For example, any blog post with the tag make money online, will show an advert about making money online and any post with the tag drive traffic, will show an advert about the best ways to drive traffic to your site. This kind of targeting will significantly boost your conversions. If you want to start using condition marketing on your own website, I recommend you use our brand new tool, WhyCompete, which will make setting this all up a lot easier!

Benefits:

  • Can earn you big bucks!
  • Easy to setup and doesn’t require much support.
  • Passive income.

Drawbacks:

  • Earnings are not guaranteed, can earn $100 one month, $1000 the next.
  • Great products can have low converting sales pages.
  • High converting sales pages can have rubbish products.

3. Create & Sell Your Own Digital Product

Something I’m experimenting more and more with and I’m not sure if it’s just me.. but it seems like the world has gone crazy about making products, they are everywhere which has educated the market so they know they have to purchase content now. The simple version of creating a product is as followed, create a 30+ page word document about something, turn it into a PDF and sell it.

You can find out more about creating a product and selling it online by reading these posts.

Personally I think your first steps would be to ask your audience what they want to know more about, create a product around that and sell it!

When it comes to selling any product of your own, I recommend using SamCart for your checkout page, upsells and affiliate program. They have a free trial, so make sure to try it out.

Benefits:

  • Affiliates send you traffic, build your business.
  • Passive income because of affiliates promoting it.
  • Great for building your brand and authority.
  • Big Money Earner.

Drawbacks:

  • Time consuming to setup.

4. Sell Advertising Space

The most popular way to make money from a website is by placing ads on it. We all know what ads look like, but did you know that they function in many different ways such as Pay Per Click, Pay Per 1000 Views or Pay Per Time Frame.

The biggest downside of website adverting, is that most people know what they look like and avoid clicking them.

When selling advertising, you typically have two choices:

1. Find and work with advertisers yourself.

or

2. Work with a middle man who takes a cut for bringing you advertisers.

It all depends on you. Is this a business for you or is this just an opportunity to make a bit more money?

I always lean towards finding advertisers myself. In my experience you get paid more, build better partnerships and can do a better job for them.

Advertising sales makes up only a small portion of my earnings but it’s nice to know that money is almost guaranteed to come in every month.

Be warned, Google does not like the practice of buying and selling text links. People buy text links because Google rank sites better based on quantity and quality of links. When you link to someone, you are telling search engines that you trust this site and you are giving them some of your authority. Google likes this to happen organically. So when you buy/sell links and get caught, Google will punish you by slapping your site down in the rankings.

Benefits:

  • Often guaranteed income.
  • Little effort to monetize.
  • Saves you a lot of time.
  • Great way to connect with others in your industry.

Drawbacks:

  • Takes away from user experience.
  • If you set a set price per month, you can’t make any more even if you double your traffic.
  • Advertisers come and go, you have to spend time editing, adding, deleting and finding more advertisers.

5. Create a Job Board

This works like so:

People looking to hire someone will post a job on your board and readers will apply for the job. This is a great method of monetizing a website which I have seen done by a lot of authority websites.

On the other hand, I have seen smaller blogs try to do this and completely fail because it’s competitive and if you can’t send them anyone to apply, it’s pointless for them to post a job. Jobs can be anything from, writers to trainers.

As for what software to use, I recommend you check out ThemeForest, they have a good selection of different job board plugins and themes.

When it comes to marketing your job board, you will want to use some of your advertising space to promote the job board so that readers will see it and apply for jobs.

Charge a low price at the beginning so that you can attract a lot of customers and if they get applications they will be happy to return.

Benefits:

  • Completely hands of, you don’t have to do anything.
  • Adds to credibility

Drawbacks:

  • Doesn’t work for small blogs
  • Very competitive at times.

6. Selling Services

Selling services is a very popular technique people use to make money from a website and is often the reason for them building a blog in the first place. They want to get more clients, to do that they need to get traffic and blogs are great for that!

The easiest way to start selling your services on your blog is to create a new page within WordPress and call it services. Here you can put in the information about what you offer, testimonials and a buy now button.

To collect payments, your best two options is either PayPal or Stripe.

Benefits:

  • High converting, they see your blog and want more!
  • Highly profitable.
  • Easy to deliver.
  • Low refunds.

Drawbacks:

  • Exchanging time for money.
  • Customers are always right (which we know isn’t true).
  • Can be periods of time where you have no customers!

7. Review Products as an Affiliate

I know quite a few people who review products on their blogs, it makes great content and if the product you are reviewing has an affiliate program, can make you a lot of money. You can review anything from software, to bikes, cars, hotels, holidays, food, anything you could think of and it’s all tax deductible (I believe) if you buy something to review.

Check this post out about How To Start a Review Blog.

I personally want to review one product a month, it’s not so many that readers will be turned of but enough that it will make up a high proportion of my income. Doing small amount of reviews means you can pick all the best products and don’t have to speak about negative ones.

Benefits:

  • Great source of income.
  • Converts higher then banner ads and email promotions.
  • Free products sent to you to review.
  • Connect with industry leaders.
  • Get noticed as a top affiliate.

Drawbacks:

  • You can’t always say nice things.
  • If you say bad things, don’t expect to work with that person.
  • Products become irrelevant quickly in some industry’s.

8. Offer a Membership Site or Premium Content

This technique has become more and more popular over the last few years.

The idea is simply, people come to your website because they want to read your content. They love it and want more. So you offer them even better content, for a price.

Your first step should be to work out what you’re going to offer. Then, you will want to go ahead and create a membership area for them to login and see the information you’re selling.

Once you have set it up, you will want to focus on marketing it. For best results, I recommend focusing on email marketing and adding an advert at the bottom of every page, mentioning that if they liked what they have read so far, they should take a look at your even better paid content.

Another option would be to release an affiliate program for your membership site. This not only will increase sales but will bring you even more traffic.

For billing, checkout pages, upsell pages and affiliate program software, I recommend you use SamCart.

For your membership site, again you could use ThemeForest to find a good theme.

Benefits:

  • Continuity income, keep making money, month after month.
  • Can be set and forget, if you time release.
  • Affiliates will send you traffic!
  • Can be a huge earner, it accounts for over $90k a month for Tutsplus.

Drawbacks:

  • Can be a lot of work to set up.
  • Regular work to release more content.

9. Sell Paid Directory Listings

This isn’t very common but I believe it should be.

I see it as a smart way to sell advertising, you see instead of putting adverts on your sidebar, you have a directory on your blog where you link to different company’s and websites in your industry and charge a premium for the listing. If you charged a monthly fee, so for example, say you had 1000 people listed in your directory and charged $7 a month, you would earn $7000 a month in continuity.

In some ways, this is actually beneficial to the reader, say you have a website about becoming a model, in the directory could be a section for photographers, where photographers pay to list their services. Models will come and look for the right person to take pictures of them for their portfolio, helpful and profitable.

Just like a job board, I would add adverts to my blog, promoting the directory to make sure customers are happy with the number of people seeing their ad and the traffic they get. To start with, I would even advertise on other sites to get people to list in your directory, as well as reaching out to people and company’s to buy a listing.

Benefits:

  • Highly profitable.
  • Useful to readers.
  • Makes you stand out as your doing something different.
  • Nearly guaranteed income.

Drawback:

  • Costs to setup.
  • Smaller sites may not work so well.

10. Host Webinars & Sell Something

Webinars are great at selling high price products, either a the product owner or as an affiliate.

Alternatively, you could set up a free webinar that you replay once a week, teach something and then at the end you sell them into 4 more webinars. Once you complete the webinar series, you now have a product that you can sell as a home study course

Here is a great introduction to how to sell with webinars.

Benefits:

  • High priced, low amount of customers, so low support.
  • Readers want to connect with you.
  • Highly beneficial to those who buy.
  • Great way to teach.

Drawbacks:

  • If your doing live webinars, your exchanging time for money.
  • Investment for software.
  • People have to turn up at a specific time, hard for different time zones.

11. Write Tutorials & Promote Something

Another thing I don’t see often, but I love to do!

Content is what everyone is after, that’s why they come to your website, so create content which includes them buying something so that when they do buy, they buy via an affiliate link, and make you money!

What I do to create a tutorial, is I start with the product, find one that you are using and you get a lot out of, it of course needs to have an affiliate program. Then do a tutorial about doing something using that tool.

So for example it could be a post about Photography and take a specific type of photo but you need this lens to do it.

Benefits:

  • Makes great content.
  • Good for search engines.
  • Profitable long term.
  • Quick to produce.

Drawbacks:

  • Finding enough products that have affiliate programs.
  • Some people may not be interested because they don’t yet have the product.

12. Publish a Book

A lot of people want to write a book, however they have no audience.

A blog can bring you branding, can help you connect with other people in your industry, help you understand what people like to read about, more importantly what people don’t like. All this can help you write a best selling book.

A lot of people don’t consider a book because you only get a couple dollars a book but that’s not just what you earn.

Publishing a book can allow you to then launch a product because people always want more, also a more exciting prospect is being paid to speak. If you are published, you’re automatically seen as an expect, it doesn’t matter if you never sell more than a dozen books, this means you can charge to speak and charge a lot more for consulting.

There’s so many different ways to go about publishing a book, most choose self publish but if your blog is successful, either they will find you or in my case, a friend connected me with his published and told me I should write a book. Someone in your industry who blogs, will also have published a book, help them and they will help you.

Benefits:

  • Authority.
  • Long term earnings.
  • Increase your charge for consulting.
  • Paid to speak at events.

Drawbacks:

  • Timely or expensive if you have a ghostwriter.
  • Doesn’t make you a lot of money on it’s own.

13. Offer Live Training and Workshops

Just like selling consulting and services, you could also use your blog to sell live training, workshops and seminars.

People read your blog but I wouldn’t be surprised if over 80% don’t act on what you say. Having a workshop means they learn from you and implement with you, this is a very attractive offer to some people and they are willing to pay high prices to do it.

You don’t just make money from the price of the ticket but you can also make money from selling follow up workshops and masterminds. If you bring in speakers, then you also collect 50% of everything they make if they sell from stage at the end. Another thing to consider is recording the event and then selling that as a product on your blog.

Putting on an event is a daunting thing, however it really isn’t to hard. Ring up a hotel, book a conference room, now you have a date, write a blog post and send everyone on your mailing list to that page.

Mention your event every where and keep hustling! Apart from that, all you NEED to do is create your slides and turn up. Some of my friends even hire people to run everything for them so they don’t have to worry about the event side of things themselves.

Benefits:

  • Can make you a lot of money.
  • Can be made into a product.
  • People will invite you to speak at their events so that you can sell yours.
  • Makes you an authority.

Drawbacks:

  • Time consuming.
  • Selling can sometimes be hard.
  • Stressful for first timers and often the pros.

14. Sell Your Website

Definitely my favorite of all the above and also the one that pays the most.

Selling your website can make you very wealthy, or it could be just a nice retirement fund. Whatever it is, it can be a great way to get a large lump sum of cash.

Typically, websites sell for 12 – 24 months revenue, however if your site is old, has something unique about it or is the authority in your industry then you can expect any figure you want. I have seen some blogs go for over 200 years revenue and it didn’t even make $100,000 a year.

Work hard and it will pay off.

It is important to remember if you sold your site for 2 years revenue and it made $5000 a month, you would get $120,000. To earn that amount of money it could take you 6 or 7 years because of expenses and taxes. You also have to factor in how long it took you to build your business. If it took you two years and you sell for $120,000 – then it would be like earning an extra $60,000 a year.

If you are already at the stage where selling your website is an option, read this post on selling your website.

Benefits:

  • Large amount of cash.
  • Can be sold within a month.
  • Enough money not to have to work for years.

Drawbacks:

  • You lose an asset.
  • You lose an income stream.

That’s it. Our top 14 ways to make money from a website.

Here is a quick recap of what I recommend you do:

  • Get Aweber.
  • Get PopUp Domination.
  • Get Optimizepress.
  • Create a free report or eCourse to give away as an incentive for signing up for your list.
  • Create your own online training to sell to your subscribers.
  • Find highly rated products to promote as an affiliate to your list.
  • Reinvest earnings to make even more.
  • Get Samcart to increase checkout and upsell page conversions.
  • Use Samcart to release your own affiliate program to get other bloggers and competitors to promote your stuff.
  • Expand, expand, expand!

4 Ways to Make Money by Turning Your Computer on and Walking Away

computer left onCrazy as it may sound, you can make money with your computer without actually doing any work!

I am not talking about earning money playing computer games!

And no, recycling your old computer, although a great option for getting some cash for an old and unused PC, is not what I am talking about here, either.

I am talking about making money by simply turning your PC on and walking away!

Essentially you’ll use the processing power of your computer to make money by sharing the resource with others in a safe and reliable way.

With the power of your home computer and internet connection, there are a range of software options you can employ to turn your computer into a money maker.

1. Slicify

Using software created by companies like Slicify, you are able to set up a partitioned Linux Virtual Machine on your home PC. This means that other people can run software on your computer, without having access to any of your personal information, programs or files.

It is essentially a small-scale version of what large companies like Amazon or are doing when they rent out their servers to other businesses.

It is known as Distributed Computing.

When you use this software, you are listed on a secure pool where buyers in need can see the details of what your computer can provide.

If they want to make use of it, they simply select your computer and pay to use it by the house, bringing in money with zero effort from you.

As more and more business moved online, many businesses find themselves needing extra storage space, servers, or other support.

On a large scale, companies like Amazon add billions to their revenue by sharing their computing power with companies from a range of industries, including finance, science, engineering, and more.

Do I have to do any work?

No!

After installing the software, all you need to do is turn on your PC.

That’s it!

If your computer is on and has an internet connection, the software will ensure that everything else runs smoothly.

If any problems occur, there is an impressive customer support and FAQ available for users that should guide you through any problems.

Is this safe?

Software like Slicify exists so you can undertake this process securely.

It ensures that your private information remains private and that nothing harmful can be installed or accessed.

Using tools to complement your firewall, you can be sure no one can see your personal files.

Any traffic that goes through your computer goes through Slicify first, making sure every access is secure.

How do I get paid?

Currently, Slicify uses PayPal to conduct payouts, so you will need to simply set up an account to get paid.

Whenever your machine is rented, you are paid by the hour.

If you make referrals to other people, you can also make referral bonuses from the work done on their computers.

How much will I make?

Larger companies using this process currently charge between $0.02 to $4.60 per hour depending on the need and capacity of the PC.

For home computers, you can earn between $0.10 and $0.40 per hour, depending on the provider and service.

You have a chance of making more on Slicify because bidders can compete for your PC.

That said, the amount of money you can earn is really not much. But then again, you aren’t doing anything either.

You just turn on your computer in the mooring (or whenever you like) and go about your daily routine. Your computer’s power does all the work and collects you a few dollars a day.

All payments will be made through PayPal, and getting others to participate means you make money even more quickly.

You can find out more specifically how much your PC is worth by using the Calculator on Slicify.

Other paid distributed computing projects

Slicify is not the only service available for this option. There are also many other paid distributed computing projects.

Here are the other 3 well-known and trusted networks you can join to get paid for distributed computing:

2. Gomez PEER

Gomez PEER is one of the most popular distributed computing company for home users.

Simply download the software you need from the site and instantly begin making use of your computer’s power immediately.

There are over 150 000 computers on this service and actively making money.

The sign up is free, and you can help companies grow while making your own money.

3. Digital / Coin Generation

Just like the other tools discussed, Digital Generation requires you to simply install software and allow it to run.

The software runs in the background of your programs without impacting your computer’s performance.

4. MQL 5 – Distributed Cloud Network

Think of the amount of time your PC sits in your home office without being used – you can turn that time into a period that your computer makes you money.

 

Sell your computer’s CPU time to members of MQL 5 who use the additional power for analyzing data or developing new math models.

In summary

Each of the services discussed above has been used popularly by thousands to make money easily.

While you won’t make a living off this process, it is an easy and steady revenue to add with no effort.

Your own use of your home computer is not limited in any way by the use.

It almost seems crazy not to do it!
