According to Elections Canada, the agency that runs federal elections in Canada, there has been “a growing interest” in cryptocurrency donations. This trend has prompted some political parties to ask for a ruling on how best to manage bitcoin and other cryptocurrency political donations and how to navigate the various reporting systems required by both Elections Canada and the parties so that they comply with the Canada Elections Act.Election season is just beginning in Canada.

BloqLabs has opened up the beta waitlist for Titan, a fully integrated software suite for managing cryptocurrency mining. The project was introduced by Bloq CEO and co-founder Jeff Garzik onstage during a brief speech at Binance Fair in Singapore in an overview discussion of BloqLabs.Cryptocurrency mining can be profitable but optimizing and managing devices manually can be a pain-point for miners. From tweaking the power limit of the GPU to fixing the downtime problem at the moment it happens, these are just some of the difficulties crypto miners have to contend with when mining cryptocurrencies.In an email correspondence with Bitcoin Magazine, principal blockchain engineer at Bloq and CEO of Titan, Ryan Condron, said Titan is the result of years of developing tools to manage their company's mining farms. Along with Titan's CTO, Kyle Howlett, the team believes they have found a way to help businesses maximize their ROI on mining."In the process of developing tools to manage our mining farms, we’ve gotten very good at fingerprinting various types of mining devices once they are plugged into a network,” said Condron. “Then, given our understanding of what makes these devices function optimally, we’ve written ways to interface with the device’s firmware. Pull all of that into a single interface, and you have a very powerful tool."The Titan software is free to download, and it can be in...
