Ethash shares issue resolved

On Friday evening, Chris adjusted the ethash minimum difficulty so that customers with weaker equipment could submit shares more frequently.

Re: Watch our new PPLNS video!

I'm going out on a limb and guess PPLNS isn't for the little rigs?.... make more videos btw that, definitely helps a nooB lol TYVM PPLNS isn't for most people. Since you're only mining one coin, it will never approach the profitability of Proswitching, which mines the most profitable coin at all ti...

Watch our new PPLNS video!

We're pleased to announce a new video covering some PPLNS concepts at Prohashing. While PPLNS mining doesn't provide for the profitability increase that Proswitching mining allows, some mining rigs do well by mining a single coin and receiving the merge-mining PPLNS bonuses. This video teaches about...

Steve for the Chia pool will it require the official pool protocol plots or will the OG plots be able to use in pooling, like HPool does ?

Re: xmrig - duplicate shares since yesterday

This issue has been resolved. Thanks for your feedback! The cause of the problem was that RandomX requires recalculation of different work for every person. In yesterday's release, we changed the calculation of work for other algorithms back to once per block using a different method, which reduced ...

What matters and what doesn't in the cryptocurrency markets

With the cryptocurrency market - and particularly bitcoin - about to reach an inflection point where prices will break up or down, I thought it worthwhile to discuss some of the issues that will, and will not, affect which direction the trend breaks. To understand how which factors are important, th...
