How Crypto Works: A Simple Guide

How Crypto Works: A Simple Guide

If you are someone that spends a lot of time on the internet, then it is likely that you have been unable to escape the world of cryptocurrency. It feels as though crypto has appeared out of nowhere and it is taking the world by storm, but the truth is that crypto has been around for some time now.

A lot of people actually chose to dip their finger in cryptocurrency in the early 2000s and crypto has been steadily fluctuating for some time now. However, it really gained attention in 2014, when sales of the popular cryptocurrency called ‘Bitcoin’ skyrocketed.

Though it is certain that you have probably heard of crypto currency, it is not guaranteed that you understanding. It is completely understandable as cryptocurrency is only just starting to hit the mainstream and it is not exactly something that we all learn about at school, so it can be extremely confusing. We understand how confusing it can be and sometimes looking for help online can only add to the confusion as most explanations are written on the basis that you have at least some knowledge of crypto.  We appreciate that not everyone has this basic understanding and so here is a simple guide to how crypto works.

What exactly is cryptocurrency?

If you are having a hard time understanding what cryptocurrency, the best comparison that we can make for you is the stock market.  You are probably familiar with buying stocks and how that works. When you buy stocks you do it on the basis of buying when the price is low and selling them when the price is high. Much like stocks, cryptocurrency doesn’t have a set price and so when you purchase it, you do so with the intention of selling it at a higher price in order to make a profit.

Cryptocurrency can also be used just like ordinary money and so you can use it to purchase products and services. It is in the name that it can be used as an alternative to ordinary money, as it is a type of currency. Depending on what the current worth of your cryptocurrency is, it can often be better to pay using your cryptocurrency and many services and businesses are starting to accept a variety of crypto currencies.

There are many types and they fluctuate in popularity

When people refer to cryptocurrency they aren’t just referring to one specific currency. There are a number of different cryptocurrencies and they all fluctuate in popularity. As I previously stated, Bitcoin was one of the most popular currencies for some time, but that is not the case as the worth of currency changes every minute.

Dogecoin and how it gained popularity

Currently, the most popular cryptocurrency is Dogecoin. Dogecoin is actually based on the very popular internet meme ‘Doge’, which was initially made as a joke and was supposed to be a commentary on the world of cryptocurrency.

So many people enjoyed the idea of Dogecoin that it actually started to take off and a single Dogecoin was worth sixty eight cents at one point. This may not seem like too much, but many people bought hundreds for less than a cent  and so they have managed to make a tasty profit. Dogecoin’s worth is very dependent on its internet popularity and so it can be tricky to know when to buy and when to sell, we recommend that you take a look at this guide about buying dogecoin as it will make the buying process much clearer and will allow you to gain a better understanding of the currency.

Home DIY: How to Safely Repair your Electrical Systems

In this last year, millions and millions of people worldwide have been put into lockdown due to the coronavirus pandemic, this means people have had much more free time. One thing many people have taken an interest in with this free time is getting better at and understanding more about DIY. Many jobs that in the past people would have called a handyman to come to fix, they’ve got the time to find a YouTube tutorial and have a crack at fixing it themselves. Most DIY jobs are safe for you to try by yourself at home but some jobs have an aspect of risk. Many people have felt the frustration of your electrical systems failing as we all rely so heavily on electricity, but before you have a go at fixing it make sure you read this article first to find out how to repair your electrical systems safely and not end up with any injuries.

 

How your electricity system works in your home.

Your home’s electrical system includes any wiring within your house, every single switch has energy running through it, there is a panel that allows electricity to enter the house among many other things. They all work together to provide you with electricity. How it works is that electrical current flows through a hot wire, this current is created by electrons flowing through a wire creating the energy that is your electricity. Voltage is an important thing in this system as it is the pressure at which this movement happens and different houses can manage a different voltage, it’s important to be aware of what voltage is in your house as your systems will only be designed to handle this specific voltage. Most households support a voltage of 120 or 240, this is responsible for powering everything in your household from your air-con to your phone charger.

 

Issues that can arise in your electrical systems.

As your electrical systems are such a complex system there are many issues that can arise that will be important for you to repair as soon as possible. Your electricity can stop working if anything happens to any of the wires in your home, they can short out of completely fail, this, in turn, disrupts the entire circuit and prevents you from receiving any electricity. Circuit breakers can trip, this means that the circuit is trying to draw more electricity than it is designed to handle so they trip before reaching a dangerously high temperature. If your home’s circuit is overloaded then fuses can trip, this means that that the fuse melts causing a power outage. Finally, electrical switches can malfunction which again causes you to lose your electricity in y our home. Keep reading to find out how to deal with any of these issues.

 

How you can fix these problems.

When you’re going to repair any issues with your electrical systems there are several tools that you’ll need to enable you to complete the job sufficiently. You’ll definitely need the correct size and shaped screwdriver for your home as well as wrenches. You’ll also need a multimeter, this is extremely important to keep yourself safe as it measures voltage, current, and resistance. If you’re unsure what multimeter to buy as you’re new to this then the multimeter guide will be a great help. You can use these tools to identify what the problem is with your electricity, it’s always good to check with your neighbors too and see if their power is out so you can figure out if it is a repair you can do yourself or whether to call a licensed electrician.

Future Homes: Are Digital Locks Safer Than Conventional Ones?

Future Homes: Are Digital Locks Safer Than Conventional Ones?

Security is one of the most prominent concerns amongst homeowners all over Australia. No matter where we move to, no matter how secluded or how friendly the neighborhood appears to be, it’s probably a good idea to ensure you, your personal belongings, your family or friends and your home itself are well protected. So, how can you do that? Well thanks to our progressive societal influence, there are tonnes of ways to keep you and your home safe and secure. One of the most important aspects of home security (aside from the old trusty burglar alarm), is ensuring all the potential access points to your home is safely and securely locked uptight.

If you look online, you will see a seemingly infinitesimally large selection of potential locks for your doors, windows, and any other place you can think of. Locks have been an integral part of home security for centuries and therefore, they have undergone a multitude of changes over the years. If you’re looking for more information on all things locked, why not check out Locksmith Central Coast for all your lock-related security needs – all with a wonderful Australian flare.

Over the last couple of decades, however, there has even been a rise in a new more technologically advanced type of lock – the digital lock. No more fiddly keys or having to worry about burglars armed with a few safety pins, digital locks offered up something new, something safer. But do they really? We’re going to explore whether digital locks truly do offer up a more full-proof solution to home security or if they’re just an experimental phase trying to improve upon a largely successful, more traditional security measure.

 

So, What is Better?

Well, unfortunately, that isn’t such a simple question to answer. There are in fact a number of standard door lock problems that people should make sure to keep an eye out for if they’re wanting to maximize their security. But if you’re wanting to make sure that you haven’t picked a faulty lock, it’s probably best to make sure the performance of the lock isn’t being affected by any of those issues first. The first step to finding out which lock is better for you is by doing some online research.

Traditional locks involve a relatively simple, yet often very effective mechanism to ensure your doors aren’t easy to access unannounced. There are a few different security levels on your locks that are beneficial for you to understand. These levels may be different depending on the type of lock, but they often come in three levels. One is the most secure and three is pretty much the least (but still secure), which can also increase or reduce the price. For the lock on your front door, you will probably be best getting a level one lock that can withstand daily usage, however with something like a bathroom lock, a level three would do the trick as it would be used less.

Smart locks are often packaged as high-tech ultra-safe solutions to security, but that isn’t always the case. Many times, most smart locks incorporate the traditional lock mechanism for its security measure and the ‘smart’ aspect mainly comes with how it can incorporate and interact with the rest of your ‘smart’ home. Some smart locks can even let you operate your locks remotely using your smartphone. But unfortunately, smart solutions can also create smart problems. With the technological component of your smart lock, you may not just be at risk of tampering with the internal locking mechanism, but also of hackers attempting to breach the security of the software required to connect your phone and your lock.

 

How the Cloud is Helping Welding Companies Be More Profitable

How the Cloud is Helping Welding Companies Be More Profitable

Welding is probably the last industry that comes to mind when you think of cloud computing, but many welding companies have actually taken advantage of this new type of computing to make their business run more smoothly and thus become more profitable.

The Cloud

The reason that cloud computing has helped welding companies comes down to the nature of the work involved in welding. It is a craft that really requires the ability to measure your success with different projects, whether it be work on houses or warehouses. Consequently, being able to store analyses on the cloud is a very easy, and therefore efficient, way to do this.

In the past, being able to monitor each welders performance and finished work was often an extraneous task that took up time and resources, making it not really worth it for companies aiming for high profits. The obvious downside is that reputations could easily be damaged by consistent subpar welding works, thus losing profit in the long run. With the cloud, analyses can be stored for every piece of work, so if you are a manager at a welding company you can keep a close check on how your employees are doing. But how does this work?

All managers need to do to monitor employees is to connect to the cloud using an ethernet cable, then they will be given their own login which is secured with a password. That’s it. Then, you can start analysing employee performance via the data that comes through for each employee via their individual serial numbers.

This could also mean that if you are an employee (or just a regular person looking to do some work on your own house, for that matter) you can look at the available information on the relevant cloud storage so you can find a wealth of welding information that will allow you to carry out the work more efficiently. There are of course many ways to store such information, however, which begs the question: Why is the cloud so much more technically efficient?

The main reason is that it gets rid of the need for on-site servers, which require a lot of technical expertise and therefore cost a lot more to use. Things that would usually take up valuable time like software upgrades are done on the cloud automatically, further reducing costs through time reduction.

How the Cloud Helps Utility Management Companies

The cloud is an extremely useful tool when it comes to keeping a company organised and controlled. Utility management companies can use the cloud as a means to store data safely and with peace of mind that should anything bad happen it can be restored. The cloud is a great addition to any business and can be used is a variety of ways including:

 

  • File sharing – the cloud allows multiple to access important files from a shared drive.

 

  • File storage – it can be used as a means to store large amounts of data on an unlimited storage domain, can also be used to back up and restore the data when required.

 

  • Communication – use the cloud as a means to improve organisation and communication. By giving everyone within your team access to a cloud domain you can share files between co-workers efficiently and safe in the knowledge that your data is secure.

 

When it comes to utility management companies it is crucial that files are handled correctly. Power is an important commodity and even the smallest of errors may prove to be catastrophic. Organisation is a great way of avoiding errors in the workplace, by keeping organised workers are able to focus on their work to ensure that they are working at maximum efficiency.

 

Using the cloud, utility companies can ensure that the simpler tasks are done properly such as client management, or helping people to energie overstappen suppliers, dealing with customer feedback and watching the progress of the company. By ensuring that the basic business tasks are dealt with in an organised manner businesses are able to place more focus on the more complex processes, particularly within the utility management industry.

 

Overall, the cloud as a whole is an extremely effective way of storing data for any business,but within utility management the company itself benefits highly from the organisation that comes with it.

 

 

How Cloud Computing Has Impacted Mobile Games

How Cloud Computing Has Impacted Mobile Games

Cloud computing has made great advancements the past decade, mostly due to the recent surge in internet speeds with optic fiber broadband being readily available in most areas in the cities of North America. This has made leaps in how games are consumed on-the-go. Cloud computing has allowed server farms, hosting the biggest triple A titles at extreme speeds be streamed over the internet, meaning all that is warranted to play is a device that can connect to the internet at a fast rate of megabytes per second. Cloud computing has also allowed mobiles to be played online, without a user’s data being stored on the device, making online games more fair and harder to manipulate, so your level on AFK Arena is stored safely on the developer’s servers, there are some working codes here for it.

Games can now be considered a service; a streaming service with PlayStation Now for PSPs and PS4’s, even the Nintendo Switch has a similar service, where games are streamed to you, rendering discs and downloads void. The first games as a streaming service came about in 2010 but unfortunately, the broadband speed needed to achieve smooth gameplay wasn’t around, but with big companies such as Nintendo, Sony and Microsoft now offering these services in 2020, it’s easy to assume that with increased broadband speeds across homes all over America, the big companies wanted to innovate with these streaming services.

With the arrival of 5G networks, it could be a possibility, very soon, streaming services could hit mobile phones in a big way. 5G networks allow the latest flagship smartphones to get rates of two-hundred megabytes per second to even a gigabyte per second. This will allow smartphones to stream at a very fast rate. Advancements like 5G and further into optimizing cloud computing is the future of the mobile game industry. It will cut down costs for manufacturers, creating a cheaper, more efficient portable gaming product and might even allow people to take a controller out their bag and play the latest triple A titles on the bus via just their smartphone.

The biggest hurdle now is the cost of running these servers and minimizing input lag. Currently, servers must be close to the gamer, this is to reduce all factors which might cause lag within the game. With latency having such a massive factor in the overall gaming experience with these streaming services using cloud, it’s a massive hurdle to make mobile cloud gaming a viable and wise choice for the consumer. The main difference between film streaming services and the new game streaming services is that latency and lag are key factors in winning or losing. It would be difficult to advertise a product when you could lose an important match, ruining the gaming experience, because someone was closer to the servers than you or have a bit of an advantage due to a better megabytes per second speed.

5G though, not only improves connection speed to up to a gigabyte per second, compared to the twenty megabytes per second of 4G, but also improves latency to a ridiculously low zero point 5 milliseconds, compared to 4Gs average of ten milliseconds. The problem with 5G is that it doesn’t have the range of 4G, so you’d only be able to use it above ground, so no subway and it’s only available in the busiest of areas in metropolitan cities. Meaning 5G cloud gaming on your smartphone might be viable in Times Square, but not in rural New Jersey.

While cloud computing has changed many aspects of mobile gaming, such as data servers for ranking and leader boards in your favorite mobile game, it has unleashed a new revolution in how we consume games for the future, but not without its hurdles. It will allow playing triple A titles while out in your city but might struggle when not using 5G or ultra-fast broadband, and it might be unreliable until the technology advances. Cloud computing could completely change the way we consume games; similar to how Netflix have modernized film consumption, but only time will tell.
