ClickFunnels Review – Is it Better Than LeadPages for 2017

I have been obsessed with landing page builders lately as you tell from my most recent posts over the last couple of months.

Well today, I’m going to take a deep-dive into yet another landing page product called ClickFunnels.

I’ve been using it for more than a month on a client project of mine, and I am starting to think of it as LeadPages on steroids.

ClickFunnels Review
With its ability to create complete sales funnels and its easy to use and powerful editor, ClickFunnels provides a clear challenge to LeadPages’ place as the best landing page builder.

That’s not to say that it’s perfect, and in this ClickFunnels review, I’m going to show you how I’ve been using it and how it compares to Leadpages and SamCart.

By showing you the strengths and weaknesses of each, I hope it will help you make the best decision for which one to adopt in your own business.

What is ClickFunnels

ClickFunnels is now a fairly mature service developed by Russell Brunson and his team. It’s now been up and running for more than 3 years at the time of this review.

Unlike competitor products which allow you create single standalone pages, ClickFunnels is all about building different types of marketing funnels.

A funnel is basically a series of pages your visitors go through to reach a certain goal and it might look like this.

A simple Lead Capture Funnel might consist of 2 pages which collects a visitor’s email address and then sends them to a Thank you page when signing up.

ClickFunnelsReview-LeadCaptureFunnel

 

Or you could have more sophisticated sales funnels which are made up of multiple pages which sell to a visitor through each step of the funnel.

With ClickFunnels you can easily create:

  • Optin/Lead Capture Funnels – Used to capture email addresses of your visitors and grow your mailing list.
  • Sales Page Funnels – Create this to sell products and services, with the ability to add any upsells/downsells to your sales process.
  • Webinar Funnels – Useful for helping people register for your webinars.
  • Membership Sites – Generate a recurring income by creating a full blown membership site.

ClickFunnels comes with its own distinctive set of templates for each of the different funnel types it allows you to create.

ClickFunnelsReview-OptinTemplates

 

Or you can start from scratch and build pages directly using the ClickFunnels editor.

The editor is where ClickFunnels really shines.

It enables you to easily put together different pages in your funnel through an easy point and click interface.

No coding is required and really, anyone can use it to whip up something nice. Everything is live, so all design changes you make can see in real-time.

ClickFunnels gives you quite a bit of flexibility in creating your pages. For example, you can easily move elements around and place them where you want, which is something the Leadpages editor does not allow.

Getting Started with ClickFunnels

I was immediately impressed by the ClickFunnels onboarding process. They do a really smart thing where they offer you a free ClickFunnels t-shirt just for watching the introduction training videos.

ClickFunnelsOnboarding

 

It takes about 10 minutes, and the training videos do give you a good overview of how ClickFunnels works.

Creating your first funnel is easy. Click the Add Funnels button and you are taken to a screen showing all the funnel types available.

If you are unclear with what each funnel does, there’s an embedded video you can watch which explains how it works.

Pick the Funnel you want and click the Create Funnel button. You will be asked to give your funnel a name.

ClickFunnels will then generate a set of pages for you based on the funnel you’ve chosen. So for a sales funnel you would get:

ClickFunnelsReview-SalesFunnelWorkflow

Pages can be removed from the funnel by hovering and clicking the giant ‘X’ next to the page.

For each page in your funnel, you can select from the available templates. Each template is professionally designed and there is a good selection to choose from. Plus, more are being added all the time.

If you don’t see a template that matches your current vision, I’ve found that it’s just as easy to start from scratch. This can be done by picking any template and then quickly deleting each of the sections on the page.

The basic building block of a ClickFunnels page is a section. A typical funnel might have a header section, an above the fold content section and a footer section.

A long form sales page might also have a section for highlighting specific features or a section for testimonials.

ClickFunnels is flexible enough to support all types of designs.

Sections are then further divided into column rows. You can pick from a single column to up to 6 columns and any number in between.

Finally, inside each column is where you insert various ClickFunnels elements.

 

Basic widgets include Headline, Image, Text, Button, Input forms and Video elements.

ClickFunnelsReview-Elements

But you can also include more advanced elements like:

  • SMS Signup
  • Survey
  • Pricing Table
  • Video Unlocker
  • Facebook Comments
  • FAQ Blocks
  • Countdown Timers
  • Custom HTML

As you mouseover any section, row or element, it will get highlighted and clicking slide in the contextual editor from the right-hand side where you can change its properties.

Background colors, margins, fonts, alignment can all be changed as well as element specific properties like a specific image url for the Image element.

ClickFunnelsReview-editor2 (1)

 

It’s all quite intuitive to use once you’ve played around with things a bit.

The editor is quite impressive and strikes a nice balance between flexibility and ease of use.

If you are selling a product, then you want to integrate with a payment processor.

ClickFunnels directly supports Backpack CRM, InfusionSoft and Clickbank.

if you don’t use any of those services, then I recommend using the Stripeintegration since it is free to signup for and use.

I didn’t have any experience with Stripe until I tested it with ClickFunnels, but I found that it’s an extremely simple way to take credit card payments.

Once you have created your Stripe account, just follow the simple instructions to link it to your ClickFunnels account and you’re all set.

Whenever anyone goes through the Order Page form of your funnel, it will automatically be used to collect payment from your customer.

Tracking

In addition to helping you create each of the pages in your sales funnel, ClickFunnels also helps you track how each page in your funnel performs.

At the top of each page, you can see in real-time the total number of visitors for each page in the funnel, how many visitors clicked on the next button of the page, and the conversion rate.

You will also see a graph showing your stats over a specified time period.

ClickFunnelsReview-Tracking

 

Split testing is also baked into ClickFunnels which is essential for helping you optimize the conversion rate of your funnels.

If you click in the Split Test tab, you can see the stats of all your existing split tests. Plus you will see the button to create a New Split Test.

Setting up new split tests is quite easy. The best way is to clone an existing page and then tweak it from there.

Unfortunately, ClickFunnels does not have a lot of advanced split testing features that I’ve seen implemented in other products like Thrive Leads.

For example, there doesn’t seem to be a way to automatically rotate your split tests. And I would love to see ClickFunnels pick a “winning” split test after a statistically significant amount of data has been collected.

Actionetics and Backpack

When it was first released, ClickFunnels was all about creating…well funnels. But Russell had even bigger ambitions for the product and that’s how Actionetics and Backpack came about.

Actionetics

Actionetics aims to be a replacement for your favorite email service provider.

With Actionetics, you can see everyone who has opted into your lists through your ClickFunnels in the Contact Profiles page.

What’s cool is that each of your leads is given an Action Score, which is based on recency, frequency, monetary value and social scores. It basically gives you an idea of which leads are more likely to buy from you.

You can use Actionetics to send email broadcasts and the email builder allows you to design nice looking emails. And Action Funnels are Actionetics way of creating autoresponders with some limited marketing automation features.

While some of its features are interesting, Actionetics still can’t compete with a full fledged email service provider like ActiveCampaign, Drip or ConvertKit. Personally, I just prefer a standalone service where I’m not tied into an all-in-one solution.

Backpack

One of the best ways to boost the sales of your product is to have a great affiliate program that attracts some top affiliates.

That’s what Backpack can do for you. It’s essentially a complete affiliate platform for ClickFunnels that you can attach to any of your created funnels.

Inside Backpack, you can add everything you need for affiliates to promote your product including affiliate links, email swipe copy, and banner ads. You can also setup your affiliate payouts and see how well each of your affiliates is performing.

There’s even support for 2nd tier commissions which are an extremely powerful incentive.

Pricing

Over time, ClickFunnels has evolved their pricing plans. In the beginning, they had 3 different pricing tiers, but it now been consolidated into 2.

The cheapest ClickFunnels plan is $97 a month. On this plan, you get access to all the funnel creation tools, but you are limited to creating 20 funnels, 100 pages, and 20,000 visitors. Unfortunately, you don’t get access to Actionetics and Backpack with this plan.

For that, you’ll need to choose the Etison Suite plan. It includes everything, including Actionetics and Backpack. You also get unlimited funnels, pages, and visitors. However, this will run you $297 a month which is quite steep.

Both plans also have a 14-day free trial so you can test things out before you buy.

ClickFunnels Pros

  • Super easy to create complete funnel workflows
  • Editor balances ease of use with flexibility
  • Integrates with major email and payment providers
  • Nice looking templates for each type of funnel
  • Good training materials and ongoing weekly webinars
  • New features being consistently added
  • 2-tier affiliate program
  • 14-day free trial

ClickFunnels Cons

  • Comparatively expensive, especially the Etison plan
  • Limits on the number of funnels, pages and visitors with the standard plan
  • Lots of things to learn, steep learning curve
  • Split testing is very basic

ClickFunnels vs LeadPages

If you are reading this review, you are probably wondering how ClickFunnels compares to LeadPages.

At this current point in time, LeadPages is the dominant leader in this landing page builder space.

You can easily tell who is using LeadPages because their templates are so recognizable. Many of the top marketers are using it, and you will no doubt see many people using their landing pages.

ClickFunnels hasn’t been out as long, but it does have the marketing power of Russell Brunson behind it.

Russell is gearing ClickFunnels to become his flagship product, so what you see now is just a taste of what the product is going to look like in the future.

The strength of ClickFunnels is its easy to use editor. It is far more flexible than the LeadPages editor although Leadpages has caught up with their new drag and drop editor.

Limiting flexibility is not necessarily a bad thing. Because it makes constructing pages fast! And that’s where LeadPages really shines.

The most effective strategy for growing your email list right now is using content upgrades. By creating targeted lead magnets to your most popular posts you can get opt-in conversion rates that far surpass your standard pop-up.

LeadPages is the best service for implementing this strategy with its LeadBoxes, 2 step opt-ins, and automatic lead magnet delivery. This is why LeadBoxes are the most popular popup you will see today.

Feature Download: Download our Leadpages Lead Magnet cheatsheet to learn how we are increasing our subscriber opt-in rates by 80% or more. Just click to download.

However, some people want more control to create pages to their exact specifications. That’s the power that ClickFunnels gives you. But with great power comes great complexity. ClickFunnels certainly has a higher learning curve than LeadPages does.

The other main advantage is that ClickFunnels creates complete sales funnels for you. And all your stats through each stage of your funnel are tracked.

With LeadPages, you can only create single pages. So creating that initial sales page is simple.

But what about adding on an order form? Upsells and downsells? LeadPages can’t do that, while ClickFunnels can.

ClickFunnels vs SamCart

Another ClickFunnels alternative you may have heard of is SamCart. SamCart is a product that allows users to create beautiful, high converting checkout pages. Which gives it a lot in common with ClickFunnels.

SamCart is geared towards getting you up and selling your product fast. It supports both Stripe and Paypal and it comes with 17 different checkout page templates which you can customize.

In terms of flexibility, there is no comparison between ClickFunnel’s drag and drop editor and SamCart’s. ClickFunnels is infinitely more powerful in that you can design any checkout page you can dream of.

But again, there is a big difference in learning curves. Are you someone that wants to fiddle around with creating the perfect design, or are you someone that just wants to use a proven template to start selling right away?

SamCart comes with a lot of ways to increase the value of each customer in your funnel. You can add order bumps, which allows you to present an additional offer on your checkout page.

Or you can easily add upsells (or downsells) to your funnel that gets presented to your customer after they purchase your primary product. You can also easily create coupons for your products which is another great way to increase conversions.

If ClickFunnel’s Backpack affiliate system looks appealing to you, SamCart also offers its own affiliate center as well. Both products offer everything you need to create a great affiliate program.

One big advantage of SamCart is the fact there are no restrictions attached to any of their plans. ClickFunnels has these annoying limits on the number of funnels you can create and the number of visitors to them.

With SamCart, there are no such limits. You can sell unlimited products in your account and send as much traffic to your checkout pages as you want.

Final Thoughts

Which way you go should depend on the requirements of your business.

If you don’t mind the learning curve and want an all-in-one solution to sell your own product and be able to customize every step of your funnels then ClickFunnels is certainly worth a look.

If you’re not that technically savvy or just want to start selling something fast, then I would suggest giving SamCart a try.

However, if all you want to do is collect opt-in emails via pop-ups and landing pages, then I would go with LeadPages or Thrive Leads instead. While you can do the same with ClickFunnels, I don’t think you can justify the high monthly price tag if you are not using its more advanced features.

In the end, I would just recommend trying out ClickFunnels to see how you like it. They offer a 14-day free trial, so you can test out all the features and see how it works for you.

Cloud mining worth it in 2017…?

DQmT7JZPXD3PQJu1h2pVif5zM86DVrWzNABhtqS5xD7wjE7

Okay so I have researched this topic a bit extensively and I believe I have come to a conclusion, maybe some of you have came to the same one as me, who knows, lets see… Bitcoin is basically the entire backbone of all cryptos. I honestly could see bitcoin outperforming gold this year. If it’s possible than there could be way more barriers being broken for all cryptos I’d imagine.

DQmcGzD6ppoEowBcmqCKwYd5MsdekSg3LuqmQ4z4Ybtyrkw_1680x8400

Now back to the topic at hand…

So the cheapest “top of the line” miners are not only insanely large, noisy, and power hungry for the consumer market, that it really isn’t the most profitable investment in the long term. The hardware needs to not only be maintained by you but any damages as well. Then there’s powering them which isn’t cheap unless you have an unlimited supply of free energy. It’s a lot of stake to put in for people who are still just grinding just to survive.

All of these factors scare me from attempting to get into owning any mining equipment.

Now cloud mining is what is revolutionizing. It brings the convinience of mining except none of the physical requirement for doing (hense the name cloud mining). Now I know most on here are at least somewhat familiar with mining, see people constantly talking about it, of course we’re on a crypto platform! This is just a comparison to put it simply.

So to answer the question…

DQmZnSg5tSyhrXwLa1qae2J85PUM675QEhDtiZzAey7bh1m

Is cloud mining worth it in 2017…?

Yes, this year is the year for cloud mining. The rates for gh/s have only gone down and making returns has never been easier.

Getting started is even easier and here is my list of favorite cloud mining sites that I approve of and have some merit to them (Note all mining companies have some slight risk but as does all crypto).

#1 Hashflare

h3_300x250_1btn_eng

HashFlare is the number one site with easy withdrawals. buy hash power and start mining. Sit back let the system work for you.

 

All in all, crypto is only growing as an idea, just as our consciousness is ever increasing with each passing day. So it’s best to be a part of it now early on so you can be ahead of the rat race. Decentralized currency is the future, time to embrace it.

Bitcoin Investors Beware: Ripple/XRP Price Skyrockets

Bitcoin’s recent surge has dominated public attention the past few weeks;, however, on the 23rd of August, the XRP price also experienced a spike in value, raising its market cap to $11.2bn from $6.6bn the previous day. The cryptocurrency’s total capitalisation subsequently settled down before bumping up again on the 29th. It is holding steady around $8.4bn at the time of publication.

Three Reasons the XRP Price Increased

Firstly, Ripple (the company behind the cryptocurrency) is benefitting from XRP’s adoption amongst big banks who are taking advantage of its fast transaction speed and secure network. This allows for effective intra-bank trading as financial institutions are finally able to escape the limitations of the current outdated infrastructure. Ripple has also admitted that they have sold their currency to established banks at a discount to encourage them to become market makers and confer greater legitimacy to the project.

Secondly, Ripple recently met with a group of bankers, academics and industry influences to both discuss the cryptocurrency’s future and encourage cooperation between China and the US when it comes to the development of digital currencies. Shortly after the news, XRP’s price enjoyed its second bump in value. This is hardly a surprise – as more respected individuals associate themselves with the project, the subsequent increase in credibility is matched by an increase in value. Ripple is unashamedly aware of this and is known for stimulating credibility to fuel XRP’s valuation. For instance, the company recently invited Anja Manuel (an official from the US State Department) to their board of directors to provide support for their upcoming expansion into China. As a further example, Ripple has announced they will be holding a mid-October event in Toronto and will feature guests like Sir Tim Berners-Lee and Dr Ben Bernanke. When you get the father of the World Wide Web and an ex-chairman of the Fed in the same room, people start to pay attention.

Thirdly, an enormous amount of XRP trading occurs in Korea. 40% of all global trading volume in the past few weeks occurred between XRP and KRW (South Korean Won), suggesting that sentiment in the Asian markets played a big part in the cryptocurrency’s price spike. This is supported by an overall hike in crypto prices last week after the jitters caused by North Korea’s recent missile launch pumped the value of altcoins before investors flipped the coins for a quick return.

Conclusion

If the past few weeks have shown us anything beyond the fact that predicting the value of cryptocurrencies is becoming increasingly complex, it’s that credibility should not be underestimated. While Bitcoin has always had the first mover advantage, the currency’s recent and potential forks may push investors to move their funds towards a more reliable cryptocurrency. Ripple will undoubtedly ensure that XRP is perfectly placed to fill that demand.

GPU Mining – Getting Started Guide

Choosing a graphics card

The first part of setting up your mining rig is choosing the proper hardware. Although you could use a CPU or an ASIC device for mining, this article will be focusing on GPU (graphics card) mining. AMD creates their graphics cards with an infrastructure conducive to mining, but Nvidia cards get exceptionally low hash rates making them a terrible choice for mining. The best Nvidia graphics cards yield less than half a megahash. Laptop hardware is even worse for mining than Nvidia cards are, so you’ll need a desktop system to mine. Having a desktop system allows you to keep your hardware properly cooled as well.

The graphics card or cards need to be able to fit your motherboard, and your power supply must have an adequate number of PCI-E connectors. Before settling on your graphics card, keep that in mind. To keep your system cooled properly, you can remove the cover from the case to allow for better heat dissipation. That is called an “open-air rig.” If you point a floor or box fan at your system, or have it near an air conditioner, you can make your rig run even cooler, providing longevity and potentially better hash rates.

So, in summary, here’s what you need to look for to create an optimized GPU mining rig.

  • AMD GPU (Select a card from the list.)
  • Desktop PC (Remove the side and top panels of the case and point a fan or air conditioner at it.)
  • Choose a motherboard that has adequate PCI-E space for your card. Please note that some cards take up multiple spaces on your motherboard.
  • PSU with enough power for your card and system, and provides an adequate number of PCI-E connectors.

GPU mining software

GPU mining software is what makes your miner a miner. You could use cgMiner (no longer supports GPU mining despite its name) or BFGMiner directly, but to make things exceptionally easy, a front-end to the console is a great choice. cgWatcher is a program that provides a front end to cgMiner. cgWatcher offers a much more powerful interface, but we’ll be working with MultiMiner for its simplicity.

MultiMiner interfaces with BFGMiner, and when you run the program for the first time, you’re walked through setting everything up. It downloads BFGMiner and even locates proper mining cards attached to your rig and automatically configures them. Unlike cgWatcher, MultiMiner offers remote management and monitoring for free and instead of using software to provide this functionality, it uses a web interface so you’ll always have it with you wherever you have an internet connection.

In order to finish setting up your mining software, you’ll need to enter pool information. There’s already an article about choosing a profitable mining pool, so review that article and create an account with a pool you like the best. Enter your URL and worker information into the MultiMiner wizard.

Once you’re at the main interface for MultiMiner, click the “start” button or tweak other settings as you see fit. If you get a message saying that none of the pools can be used, check to make sure that you’ve entered your full worker name. You may enter command line options manually through MultiMiner’s advanced settings menu for your GPU.

Zcash Mining Guide for Beginners – Mine Zcash on Your PC

The Full Zcash Mining Text Guide:

Here are some good reasons to mine Zcash:

  • Mining can be a great way to subsidize the purchase of a new, high-end GPU (or two, or three…).
  • Because Zcash is easily traded for bitcoins (BTC), it’s a cheap way to slowly build up a holding position in Bitcoin. Many influential people are very bullish on Bitcoin’s future prospects.
  • BTC can easily be sold for cash, so mining ZEC can be a good way to indirectly fill your bank account or earn cash. ZEC can also be sold directly on some major exchanges.
  • Mining can be a cheap entry ticket to the Zcash markets, which are loved by traders for their high volatility. If you’re a good and/or lucky trader, you can maximize your profits.
  • Ever since ZEC hit the market, it’s been one of the highest-priced altcoins in the market, battling with Ethereum to be the highest-priced altcoin and peaking at over $400 in June 2017.

Building a large ZEC position through mining now may allow you to take advantage of price appreciation in the future with less risk than you’d face by just buying ZEC. Let’s break this idea down a bit further.

Mining and holding crypto is similar to the old adage of buying low and selling high, except for the fact that most buyers don’t know how to do technical analysis, so they buy and sell at the wrong times. They buy high during parabolic price increases and sell low during what could be normal price corrections on continued upward trends.

Buying gear and mining cryptocurrency with it allows you to own an income-producing asset in the gear itself, with aftermarket resale value holding up very well and even appreciating. GPUs purchased for mining in 2015 and 2016 were often sold at a profit in 2017 due to high demand in the market!

Allowing your gear to earn money and selling that gear when you reach your target can allow you to make nearly all your money back on the gear and pocket the crypto generated as profit.

How Zcash’s Blockchain Differs from Bitcoin’s

Zcash uses a different hashing algorithm than Bitcoin’s, making it incompatible with the special hashing hardware (ASICs) developed for Bitcoin mining. Zcash’s algorithm is known as Equihash. It’s a memory-hard algorithm; it’s designed to resist the development of Zcash-mining ASICs. Instead, Equihash is deliberately best suited for GPU mining.

Zcash also differs because it has a built-in privacy protocol called zk-SNARKS, which is designed to make it the leading privacy-based crypto in the market (competing with other privacy coins such as Dash and Monero).

Zcash has a 2.5-minute block time, compared to Bitcoin’s 10-minute blocks, and it produces a block reward of 10 coins per solved block.

Hashrate, Difficulty, and Price

The total network hashrate has been climbing rapidly since its launch in 4Q16. This chart from Coinwarz tells the story:

Zcash Network Hashrate

So if the amount of hardware dedicated to Zcash mining is rising, why aren’t blocks being mined more and more rapidly to decrease the average 2.5-minute block time?

The answer? Difficulty. By automatically adjusting the computational difficulty of solving a block, the Zcash blockchain is able to maintain 2.5-minute intervals. You’ll notice that difficulty closely tracks hashrate, and it, too, has seen exponential growth this year:

Zcash Network Difficulty

The next obvious question is why hashrate and difficulty have been rising in the first place. There’s a simple economic answer: price! Check out this chart from WorldCoinIndex:

Zcash Price

The takeaway here is that the hashrate has followed the price explosion, which really took off in May and June 2017. What an amazing bull run! Up to over $400 USD from under $50 USD in a few short months.

Calculating Zcash Mining Profitability

Now that we have a clearer understanding of the Zcash blockchain and important concepts such as difficulty, it’s time to perform some economic calculations.

First, head over to whattomine.com, which provides up-to-date figures for current prices, block times, and network hashrates (as measured in megahashes per second, or MH/s, denoting millions of calculations per second).

Plug in your card at the top and click on the model number (the red square below), and the hashing and profitability info will be displayed below (click Equihash to make it blue so it will calculate).

what to mine

These figures will change based on when you run this analysis, but for the purpose of this example, we would net roughly $1–$2 per day per GPU, depending on the model and configuration.

Choosing Your GPU Hardware

Experimentation with various GPU selections in the calculator will reveal a card with the best price-to-performance-to-power consumption combination (expressed as MH/s per currency unit). Keep in mind that AMD cards outperform Nvidia cards for Ethereum mining purposes on the EthashAlgo, but AMD doesn’t beat Nvidia when it comes to the Equihash algorithm using the EWBF Miner.

The card should have at least 1 GB of RAM, or it won’t be able to properly mine Zcash. This is a correction from the video, as EWBF supports GPUs with just 1 GB of RAM, compared to Ethereum’s 3 GB requirement. However, many older cards may not be energy efficient enough to turn a profit, so check on whattomine.com by entering your card’s info.

Pro tip: check out the following GPUs: Nvidia’s GTX 1060-6GB/1070/1080 Series; AMD’s RX 470/480, RX 570/580, R9 Series, or HD 7990/7950 (if used cards are available, try to get them from a gamer instead of a miner, with a warranty if possible). As with everything, do your own due diligence to evaluate GPUs based on their hashrates, power requirements, availability, and price.

GPU card Zcash

For a solid budget card, the Nvidia 1060 with 6 GB of RAM is recommended (when in stock and not ridiculously overpriced due to the card shortages we’ve been seeing in summer 2017). This GPU will beat the AMD 480s when it comes to mining Zcash!

Mining Zcash on your PC (Windows)

If you’re reading the newbie’s guide to Ethereum mining and have a GPU that’s powerful enough to make it worthwhile, we’re going to assume you’re running Windows, so we’ll focus on mining Zcash on that platform.

1. Get Your Video Card Drivers Installed

AMD GPUs: Head over to amd.com to download your GPU drivers. Go to amd.com, choose Support & Drivers, enter your GPU information, and click Display Results.

AMD Driver

You can click the Download button for the current driver or choose Download Previous Drivers & Software on the right-hand side. This will allow you to choose an older version that will be a great driver for mining based on your card:

R9 and older: use 15.12

RX 400 Series: use 16.9.2 or 16.10.3

RX 500 Series: because these are newer, I’d recommend going with current driver for now

AMD Driver

Click the orange download button to get started.

Nvidia GPUs: To get the latest Nvidia GeForce drivers, go to https://www.geforce.com/drivers. Enter your card info, and click Start Search. Download the current version from the results.

Nvidia Driver

Install your GPU drivers as you normally would and reboot. You’ll know your GPU has been recognized correctly if you go to Device Manager (search it in Windows search bar) and you don’t see any warning marks on your GPUs. They should look like this:

Device manager

Troubleshooting tip:  Some miners have had success installing all GPUs at once, then installing the drivers. Others prefer to install only one card, install the drivers, shut down the system, and then install the rest of the GPUs.

I’ve had success both ways, so if you run into an issue with one method, delete the drivers and try the other method. If you need to remove your drivers, use the DDU (Display Driver Uninstaller) program from Guru3d.com to remove everything cleanly, then start over.

2.  Get a Zcash Wallet Address

In order for you to have a place to send the coins you mine, you’ll need a Zcash wallet address. Go to Z.cash, the official Zcash website, and download the Zcash client.

You can also use a hardware wallet such as Trezor, Ledger Nano S, or Jaxx, a popular supported web wallet. You can even mine directly to exchanges that have support, which is primarily what I’ve been doing since November 2016 (I’ve been mining to coinpayments).

3.  Download the EWBF Zcash Miner

The next step is to download the EWBF Miner. Only download miners from the official threads in BitcoinTalk. If you scroll down, you’ll see a couple of different download options. We’re going to use the Mega download link.

Locate the most recent version of the miner and download the zip file. Let that run (it doesn’t take long), and once you have it downloaded, extract it to your desktop so that you can work with it.

Note that when you download self-contained miner files, Windows may provide a warning. If you’ve used EWBF’s official download links, you can ignore this.

4.  Tweak Some Windows Settings before Mining

Some settings should be modified in Windows to get you ready for mining.  First, you don’t want your computer to go into Sleep mode, as it will interrupt your mining. Go to your Power Settings and set Turn Off/Sleep to Never.

Next, you’ll want to modify your system page file and manually set it to 16384 MB (16GB). Right click “This PC” from Windows Explorer and choose “Properties”. Click on “Advanced system settings”. On the Advanced tab, click “Settings” (under Performance).

Click on the Advanced tab and click “Change” under Virtual Memory. Uncheck “Automatically manage paging file”. Click the radio button for Custom Size and enter 16384 for the Initial size and Maximum size. Then click OK, Apply, OK.

To minimize the disruptions to your mining and settings, you may also want to disable Windows Updates. If you feel more secure leaving updates on, you can do so, but keep in mind there are frequent updates that will reboot your system and stop your mining.

Finally, If you’re running Windows Defender or some other antivirus program, add an exclusion to it so that it doesn’t flag the entire EWBF folder.

5.  Join a Mining Pool and Configure Your Mining Bat File

The next step is to set up pool mining. Solo mining is unlikely to make you any Zcash unless you have a warehouse full of GPUs.

Your first step will be to choose a Zcash mining pool. There are plenty to choose from, but we recommend Flypool. The home page or help section of a mining pool site will likely contain instructions on how to mine on its pool using the popular EWBF Miner.

On zcash.flypool.org, you’ll see a section called Windows – Nvidia. The EWBF Miner is in this first section. You’ll need to copy the miner script example, as shown below:

Bat Pic

We’re going to paste this string into the flypool bat file inside the EWBF Miner folder we extracted earlier. The bat file is a batch file that gives the commands to run the miner application.

Right click on the bat file called “flypool” and hit Edit. The file will open in Notepad. Paste what you’ve copied from the flypool website. I’m going to update my server to “us1” instead of “eu1,” and I’m also going to remove the “—cuda_devices” language at the end. This language is used if you want to designate mining only to certain devices (for example, if you want to game with one GPU and mine with the other two). If you want to mine with all devices, you can delete the —cuda_devices designation.

Next, copy your Zcash wallet address. Inside the bat file paste your own Zcash address (in the example above replace the address that starts with “t” and ends with “DX”). After replacing the address you can also change the worker name. In this case it’s .rig1, but you can call it .miningRig1 for example.

Now save your file as a batch file with the .bat extension:

Choose File > Save As and type “.bat” after the name. In the Save As type box, make sure you select All Files, then click Save.

Congrats—you now have a batch file ready to mine! Create a shortcut for the new bat file and send it to your desktop. You can then delete the text version of the file.

Saving Bat File

6.  Start Your Miner!

Double-click your bat file to start the miner. The miner will start, initialize each of your GPUs, and hashaway.

To monitor your earnings, go back to zcash.flypool.org and paste your wallet address into the Address window at the top. Then click Check Status:

Flypool check status

That’s it for the beginner’s guide on mining Zcash on your PC!

Cloud Mining

Starting with its creation, Bitcoin is basically defined by the digitally signed records of its transactions. It is more of an encrypted proof of work that is created under a computer intensive process. Miners use a software that enables them to asses their processing capacity to solve transaction-related algorithms and are then awarded with a certain number of Bitcoin per block. This chain prevents an attempt by a miner to spend Bitcoin more than once which could as well cause the digital currency to be counterfeited simply through copy and paste.

Cloud mining (Bitcoin) used to be conducted on CPUs of individual computers with greater speed and more processing cores leading to more profits. Multi-graphics card systems then dominated the mining systems followed by field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) and finally application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) so as to find more hashes with less electric power usage. It is this constant escalation that has made it difficult for prospective miners to venture into this field unless individuals work together in mining pools. The whole mechanism is specifically created to prevent inflation worldwide.

Bitcoin started with a few individuals and small mining organizations at a time when start-ups could be enabled by single high-end gaming system but now large mining organizations can spend thousands on just one specialized high-performance computer. In cloud mining (Bitcoin), if you were to buy your own mining hardware you would have to integrate it with your computer, install the mining software, join a mining pool and you are ready to go. You would have to let your mining software run day and night and install quality fans to cool your CPU. Of course you also have to pay for increased electricity costs and deal with additional problems if any. Generally, you have to be a little tech savvy to mine using you own equipment because it would take lot more effort on your part to make a Bitcoin.

Depending on the mining platform or company that you have registered under, a small amount may be deducted to cover the costs of maintenance and running the hardware each time you get a mining reward. Since the entire operation benefits from economies of scale, these costs are usually much smaller if you compare them with what you would be paying mining at home using your own software.

As long as you have purchased some hashing power the mining software works for you 24/7. It doesn’t matter what you are doing whether you are sleeping, working on something else or on vacation, the system will still be running. With a more advanced cloud mining power, you will still earn Bitcoin even if your computer is turned off for days.

However, bear in mind that cloud mining (Bitcoin) bot-net infections are common in the mining world. These are systems that mine Bitcoin without the owner’s knowledge and then channel the funds to accounts connected to the bot-net masters.

Introducing Electroneum: The First British Cryptocurrency

Electroneum is a brand new British cryptocurrency launching via an Initial Coin Offering (ICO) on September 14th. Developed to be used in the mobile gaming and online gambling markets, it will be the most user-friendly cryptocurrency in the world with wallet management and coin mining all possible on a mobile app.

It wasn’t so long ago that cryptocurrencies were something that only a few tech-obsessed people understood or even knew about. But in the last two years, things have changed – Bitcoin’s sudden increase in value meant every tech-savvy entrepreneur and currency speculator wanted a piece of the action.

Since then, the cryptocurrency market has become one of the most exciting – and often lucrative – investment avenues in the world. Bitcoin has remained incredibly valuable but has seen its market share shrink as new alternatives have sprung up. What hasn’t changed, though, is how difficult these currencies are to get hold of and trade in, let alone spend anywhere.

Electroneum is the first British-developed cryptocurrency and represents a huge change of pace in the market. It’s built on its own unique blockchain (a blockchain is the underlying technology infrastructure beneath any cryptocurrency) and has been designed to dominate the mobile market.

Firstly, it is incredibly easy to manage and even mine on a mobile app. That means it’s capable of becoming the new, easy, secure way of making instant transactions from your phone – from buying mobile games, to sending money to friends, to betting on live sports. That sets it apart from any other cryptocurrencies that are near-impossible to spend or buy.

Electroneum has also increased its palatability to the average consumer by capping the total number of coins at 21 billion, moving the decimal point two places to the right when compared to Bitcoin, which is capped at 21 million. Whereas a pizza in Bitcoin might cost 0.005 BTC, with Electroneum it would be a much more ‘real money’ figure.

Richard Ells, the founder of Electroneum and experienced tech entrepreneur, said: “I don’t know if you’ve ever tried buying any Bitcoin, but it’s really hard to do! I realized that what the world needs is a cryptocurrency that is genuinely easy to access and use. We’ve developed Electroneum with the ordinary mobile user in mind.”

The currency also represents an intriguing investment opportunity for speculators. Cryptocurrency is well known to be a volatile, but lucrative market for investors – in the first half of 2016, the average return on investment for of 100 new coins launched was 357% – and Electroneum represents such a technological change that it’s already attracting a lot of attention in advance of the ICO in September.

Re-assuring investors are the fact that the currency was developed and is managed by a tight-knit, single-minded group of British developers and is therefore not likely to be subject to the internal wrangling and volatility that has plagued other currencies.

Electroneum has produced an overview white paper of the technology behind it. The company is currently raising funds to complete the launch of the currency, and the coin itself will be available for purchase from September 14th.
