Any chance on bringing back Monero mining with RandomX algorithm?

We would love to do that - but unfortunately, CryptoNight mining never draw a large number of customers, and our focus right now has to be on stopping the losses of customers on our primary algorithms. Over the past few days, the number of workers has dramatically declined across scrypt and SHA-256.

Constance and Vance are hard at work on a new website, and I'm investigating a bug in ethash that might be discouraging some miners from joining the pool. We do hope to return Monero mining once the website is out and we've stabilized the scrypt and SHA-256 hashrates, though!
