pH Miners Inc. Offers New Bitcoin, Litecoin Cybercurrency Miners

Customers who purchase products now can receive four miners for the price of three

NEW YORK, March 14, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — pH Miners Inc. has officially launched its two new cybercurrency miners for Bitcoin and Litecoin, and is offering a special deal for customers who purchase now.

The company, based in New York City, is giving customers the opportunity to receive four of the new cryptocurrency miners for the price of three—an incredible value considering the products are already more affordable than most other quality miners on the market. Customers should get in touch with the pH Miners team to learn more about the offer.

“The cybercurrency market is constantly growing and evolving, and we are very excited to deliver two new high-quality and affordable miners to the public,” said Eric Franklin, CEO of pH Miners Inc. “Now, we are giving customers the ability to receive even greater savings on these miners. It’s a tremendous opportunity for those who would like to mine digital currencies on a regular basis.”

The new cybercurrency miners from pH Miners Inc. include the Bitcoin Miner 25TH/s, which allows users to more efficiently and effectively process digital transactions and keep track of new digital coins that enter the marketplace. The miner retails at $3,000 and includes everything users need to easily set up and operate it, including the control unit, cabling and casing.

Also available from the growing company is the Litecoin Miner 1000MH/s, which provides many of the same features as the Bitcoin miner, along with the ability to mine Litecoin and several other cryptocurrencies around the world. Both of these products have undergone comprehensive testing and analysis throughout their manufacturing processes, which means they deliver unmatched levels of quality for users.

Bitcoin and Litecoin are two of the most popular cybercurrencies in the world, with a single Bitcoin being worth roughly $400 U.S. at this time. Litecoin, for its part, is worth a more modest $3 U.S., but it continues to rise in value. Individuals, organizations and financial institutions worldwide are taking greater notice of these cybercurrencies, as they may actually be more secure than more traditional forms of government-backed money.

In developing its products, pH Miners uses only top-quality materials and components, and they have been designed to be long-lasting and highly effective. The company’s team has years of experience working closely with both Litecoin and Bitcoin hardware, and it closely monitors manufacturing at its partner facility in Asia.

pH Miners accepts payment in Bitcoin only and provides a 15-year warranty of each of its cybercurrency miners. It also offers free shipping to anywhere in the world via UPS or FedEx.

Department of Science and Technology launches Olympiads to broaden learners’ access to science, maths

he Department of Science and Technology (DST) will launch science Olympiads and competitions in Johannesburg on Monday, 14 March, as a way to attract learner participation in science, technology, engineering, mathematics and innovation (STEMI) in the country.

An initiative of the DST and the South African Agency for Science and Technology Advancement (SAASTA), these Olympiads and competitions are being established to provide learners with a platform to broaden their knowledge and unleash their potential in STEMI.

This is expected to increase the number of schools participating in such activities; current figures show that a fraction of schools countrywide participate, which is cause for concern, considering that there are 6 000 high schools and 20 000 primary schools in the country. For example, only 82 164 learners from 1 039 schools participated in the South African Mathematics Olympiad last year, while 9 500 primary school learners from 378 schools participated in the South African Mathematics Challenge.

The event will also see the launch of a community of practice and its inaugural annual conference, creating a platform for sharing of knowledge and best practices to enhance STEMI Olympiads and competitions in South Africa. Programme
