Mining Rig Rentals blocks ethash hashrate

Post by Steve Sokolowski » Sun Sep 13, 2020 10:45 am

Several miners have reported problems with connecting ethash miners to Prohashing. I found out this morning that Mining Rig Rentals, in an attempt to ward off abuse of their systems like has been done at Nicehash, has blocked ethash hashrate from mining Ethereum Classic at Prohashing (and presumably other pools as well.)

Some customers have either rented rigs from Mining Rig Rentals, or proxy rigs through Mining Rig Rentals because they like their dashboard features. If you proxy rigs through Mining Rig Rentals, you can get around this issue by connecting directly to Prohashing, which will also provide fewer rejected shares. Hopefully, you'll be satisfied with the improved design of the new website. If you're renting ethash hashrate through Mining Rig Rentals, then unfortunately there's not much we can do.

This issue does not affect any other algorithms than ethash.
