Blake algorithm

Post by zafar177 » Sat Mar 24, 2018 4:05 pm

With the advent of siacoin blake asic miners from antminer and with the forthcoming siacoin and decred miners from obelisk.tech in may/june 2018, will Prohashing.com support this algo?

No, Blake is a different story. Any algorithm with ASICs is usually profitable enough for us, because if it weren't, the ASIC manufacturers wouldn't see profit in making ASICs either.

I'm talking more about coins that use obscure algorithms like Lyra2RE, where there are only a few valueless coins.

Isn't that exactly why we would want Sia, and other Blake Algo coins mined on hashing? Because its a PPS ASIC based pool? Just saying.

Any update on support for Obelisk.tech miners, SC1 and DCR1 miners? (Blake2B & Blake256)?
