MGT Capital increases capacity

The John McAfee led technology and bitcoin mining company presents an update for cryptocurrency operations
17 October 2017   1107

MGT Capital Investments aspires to confirm its claim of being the largest Bitcoin miner in the U.S. by increasing the number of mining machines to 4,700 units and getting 50 graphics processor-based mining computers to mine Ethereum and Ethereum Classic. The company uses Bitman Technologies S9 Antimer rigs which generate potential hash power of 60 Ph/s.

Maintaining Bitcoin mining operations MGTI expects to gain $2.0 million monthly, although considering spendings for electricity, profit sharing and management fees the ultimate amount is expected to be $1.1 million per month. Thus, the annual amount is to be $25 million and earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization of $13 million which are far more than current corporate capital requirements.

We have been running at breakneck speed to achieve a substantial expansion of our Bitcoin mining footprint, and it’s time for a comprehensive summary.

The company expects to put all the rigs into operating in the first quarter of 2018.

The new release of the Firefox web browser adds support for additional measures that focus on privacy and user security.

With the introduction of the new Firefox Quantum browser in 2017 we changed the look, feel, and performance of our core product. Since then we have launched new products to complement your experience when you’re using Firefox and serve you beyond the browser. This includes Facebook Container, Firefox Monitor and Firefox Send. Collectively, they work to protect your privacy and keep you safe so you can do the things you love online with ease and peace of mind.

In particular, the browser now blocks tracking of user devices by digital fingerprints  by website owners, as well as scripts for hidden mining of cryptocurrencies.

For the first time, intentions to introduce additional measures of protection were announced in August 2018 by Mozilla Foundation. Last month, the update successfully passed the testing phase.

Opera 60 or Reborn 3 desktop browser was previously released with a built-in cryptocurrency wallet and native Web 3 blockchain based internet support. In the future, Opera plans to support not only ERC-20 tokens, but also coins created on TRON blockchain.
