pH Miners Inc’s new deal offers $3000 savings on Bitcoin and Litecoin miners

NEW YORK, April 11, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — pH Miners Inc have launched a special offer on their powerful Bitcoin and Litecoin miners which will enable customers to buy four miners for the price of three, saving an impressive $3000.

The new offer allows customers to mix and match units according to their preference in Bitcoins or Litecoins. For example, if a customer would like two Bitcoin miners and one Litecoin miner, they will still qualify for the special offer and will be able to choose either a Bitcoin or Litecoin miner as their fourth free unit. No matter what assortment of miners they prefer, they will still qualify for the offer when they purchase three units at one time. With each device retailing at $3000 each, this promotional deal offers fantastic savings to pH Miners Inc clients.

pH Miners Inc was founded two years ago with the aim to provide high-tech and highly profitable cryptocurrency mining solutions. All components of their Bitcoin and Litecoin miners are totally unique and developed independently with no third party technologies used. By working in this way, pH Miners Inc remains dedicated to developing new, innovative technologies which can keep the cost of devices low while maintaining incredibly high levels of performance.

Speaking about the latest special offer, a spokesperson for pH Miners explained that it is this ethos for low cost and high performance which has allowed them to launch such a consumer-friendly promotion. “We’re a rapidly-growing team of specialists who are extremely passionate about what we do. We want to make cryptocurrency mining available to a wide range of customers, and by constantly developing alternative technologies which increase performance without increasing costs, we’ve been able to offer this buy-three-get-one-free deal that will dramatically increase profitability for our clients.”

Although pH Miners Inc Bitcoin and Litecoin miners are more affordable than many other competing units on the market, the quality of the devices is not compromised in any way. Every single miner must pass a two-stage test procedure; the first is performed at the end of the manufacturing process and the second just before the device is shipped to ensure that every single unit reaches the customer in perfect working condition. Furthermore, the Bitcoin miner comes with a five-year warranty, while the Litecoin miner has an even more impressive 15-year warranty.

pH Miners Inc are also offering free international delivery on all devices purchased, which means even more savings for their clients. Since the devices are relatively large and heavy units, they tend to rack up significant shipping charges. By covering the costs themselves, pH Miners Inc are saving customers hundreds of dollars more in shipping fees.

Although a relatively new company and having only officially released their devices in the first quarter of 2016, pH Miners Inc looks set to make a big impact on the industry by offering miners at such affordable prices. With such promising profitability from their units, the company expects to entice clients who are brand new to Bitcoin and Litecoin mining and eager to invest in these popular digital currencies.

South Africa: Allister Coetzee Appointed as New Springbok Coach

Allister Coetzee has been named as head coach of the Springboks for the next four years, ushering in an exciting new era for rugby in South Africa, said Mr Oregan Hoskins, president of SA Rugby.

The 52-year-old former Springbok assistant coach succeeds Heyneke Meyer at a time when a number of veterans of the 2007 Rugby World Cup triumph have gone into retirement, including three of last year’s four captains.

“Allister’s appointment marks the changing of the guard at the top of Springbok rugby and is an exciting new departure for SA Rugby,” said Mr Hoskins.

“It is a watershed moment for our game with new players developing alongside a spine of experience and it was the right time to have a new man guiding the Springboks for the foreseeable future.

“Allister was the outstanding candidate in terms of his rugby credentials, his understanding of our unique South African transformation imperatives and also in the image he will present as Springbok coach. I am delighted to welcome him back into the Springbok fold.

“The Springbok coaching job is an enormous challenge but Allister has the full support of us at SA Rugby and we will be united in our efforts to continue to make Springbok rugby strong. I want to wish him well in his new job, I also want to pay tribute to Heyneke and his management team for their dedication and service to Springbok rugby the past four years.”

Coetzee is arguably the most experienced man to be given the Springbok head coach’s job. He will draw on his personal involvement in 66 matches in the Springbok backroom in 2000 and between 2004 and 2007. He also has an exemplary record at Currie Cup and Vodacom Super Rugby record.

Coetzee said he was extremely honoured and humbled to coach the Springboks.

“This job comes with a huge amount of responsibility because our passionate fans rightfully demand the best from the Springboks at all times,” said Coetzee.

“Rugby ignites so much passion in our country. The team inspires all our people and every young rugby player in our country aspires to be a Springbok one day. I know full well that coaching the Springboks requires a lot of dedication, patience and hard work. I am very excited and grateful for this opportunity.”

SA Rugby CEO, Jurie Roux, said that Coetzee had been recommended for the role by the SA Rugby High Performance Committee, whose recommendation had been accepted by the Executive Council and the General Council over recent weeks.

He said that Coetzee emerged as the best candidate for the role following a robust and thorough process. “Allister was the most outstanding candidate based on his excellent track record as a coach at provincial and Vodacom Super Rugby level, which makes his appointment a great one for SA Rugby,” said Roux.

“He proved himself on the domestic front by winning the Currie Cup twice with DHL Western Province and leading the DHL Stormers to three SA Conference titles in the extremely tough Vodacom Super Rugby competition. And we all know of his contributions as assistant coach to the Springboks, culminating in success at the 2007 Rugby World Cup.

“We at SA Rugby are pleased with his appointment and we know we have the right person to lead us into the next and hopefully exciting phase of Springbok rugby. We’re also grateful to Kobe for allowing Allister to join us in South Africa.”

Coetzee had already been involved in a number of planning sessions with SA Rugby staff said Roux. His first official engagement as a coach will be the opening Test of the year against Ireland in Cape Town on Saturday, 11 June.

Nedbank, the dti and CIPC Partner TO Enable Small Businesses Growth

Nedbank, together with the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC), today announced the launch of “CIPC Online” via nedbank.co.za. This fully automated service allows business owners to register a business and open a business bank account in one convenient, seamless process. The service is available to both Nedbank and non-Nedbank clients starting a new company, wishing to formalise existing businesses or creating additional ones.

The Minister of Trade and Industry, Dr Rob Davies says a key theme for the Department of Trade and Industry (the dti) and its agencies is continuous improvement.

“This is exactly what this project is demonstrating: it is a public-private partnership in the true sense of the term where government and Nedbank partnered to offer different products to the mutual customers through an integrated process. The Nedbank partnership is one of a number of the initiatives aimed at promoting efficiencies for end users,” says Minister Davies.

He adds that this partnership extends the reach of government services to the most remote areas of South Africa, bridging the digital divide and making it easy to do business in South Africa.

“It is a one-stop service for an entrepreneur, who needs a convenient and seamless process to register their business and open a Nedbank business current account,” explains Minister Davies.

Nedbank’s Group Managing Executive: Retail and Business Banking, Mr Ciko Thomas says: “Nedbank understands the tough economic environment that small businesses operate in. As such, we continue to innovate and provide practical solutions for small businesses, particularly start-ups, aimed at alleviating red tape and other barriers in starting a business. Through our ongoing client engagements, we are cognisant that it has become increasingly difficult for start-ups to take off, particularly in their infancy when most businesses are more prone to fail. This forms part of our banking and beyond offering, aimed at making a meaningful difference to entrepreneurs through greater convenience.”

Typically, one of the first steps towards creating a small business is securing a company name, registering the company with the CIPC and obtaining a shareholder certificate. At this stage, a new business owner would also need to open a bank account to make and accept business related payments and start building a credit record.

Mr Thomas states that this solution will in turn assist businesses increase efficiencies, unlock growth opportunities, while freeing up their time to focus on what really matters in running their businesses. It is against this backdrop that we have partnered with the dti and CIPC to bring a much needed service for new and existing businesses.

CIPC Online is ideal for businesses with one to two directors, who are South African citizens. The application fee for qualifying applicants is R125.00 to register a company. Should an entrepreneur wish to register a business with more directors, or if one of the directors is a foreign citizen, Nedbank will facilitate these registrations through our existing in branch service offered via SwiftReg (business registration tool). Nedbank does not charge a facilitation fee for either service.

Nedbank is working on further enhancements to assist clients in the electronic filing of Annual Returns, BEE registration and potentially UIF registration in the near future.

Registering a business is now seamless, says Minister

Johannesburg – The process of registering a company in South Africa is now a simpler, seamless process says Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies.

The Minister was speaking at the launch of the partnership between the Companies and Intellectual Property Commission (CIPC) – which is an entity of the Department of Trade and Industry – and Nedbank which sees the bank joining other major banks in offering CIPC Online.

The CIPC Online initiative makes it possible for potential business owners to apply for a company registration and a business bank account through Nedbank’s online system.

“It now means that a small business or a large business can go to any of the major banks in South Africa and open a business bank account and simultaneously, through the online process, you can register with the CIPC and also you can get a South African Revenue Service tax number,” said Minister Davies on Tuesday.

The partnership will assist in broadening the footprint and reach of the CIPC and will also offer a one-stop-shop for entrepreneurs.

“All of those processes are now combined, it’s a seamless process for customers who are registering companies. That is an enormous step forward for businesses. Assuming that you’ve done everything right, this process can be done in four hours,” said Minister Davies at the launch in Sandton.

The application fee for qualifying applicants is R175 to register a company. Those interested in registering their businesses can do so at the 800 Nedbank branches across the country or access applyonline.nedbank.co.za.

The Minister said the process of launching companies in South Africa has come a long way.

The CIPC was formed four years ago with the combination of the Office of Companies and Intellectual Property Enforcement (OCIPE) and Companies and Intellectual Property Registration Office (CIPRO).

“The process of registering companies in this country has come a great long way since I become Trade and Industry Minister CIPRO was a very troubled institution, it took 15 to 20 days to register a company. There were very large queues outside the offices of CIPRO of people coming in from neighbouring provinces to register their companies,” said Minister Davies.

With the formation of the CIPC, the process of digital company registrations began.

“What we’ve done over the years is that we’ve introduced digitisation. Digitisation has created the possibilities of a much easier and simpler process for anybody to register a company.

“There has been a number of developments, the commission is running kiosks and is planning to work with municipalities and they’ve started with partnerships with the banks. I’m told now all the major banks are on board,” said Minister Davies.

The Minister said the first bank had been opening business accounts and simultaneously registering companies at a pace of 900 companies a month.

To date, it does not take more than three days to register a business in South Africa.

“It will not take small business not more than three days to register a company in this country. It can take a few hours at most. It is an incredibly important step forward,” said the Minister.

CIPC acting Commissioner, Advocate Rory Voller, said the commission is constantly striving to improve the services it delivers.

“It is our goal to reach as many people as possible in terms of what our mandate is and also to simplify the processes of the CIPC by using automation,” said Advocate Voller.

The importance of the partnership between the two parties, he said, is to cut red tape for companies. “It is our goal as public and private partners to make the lives of our people easier,” explained Voller.

Meanwhile, Nedbank’s Group Managing Executive: Retail and Business Banking said this initiative will assist businesses to increase efficiencies, unlock growth opportunities while freeing up their time to focus on running their businesses.

“It is against this that we have partnered with the dti and CIPC to bring a much needed service for new and existing businesses,” he said.
