There are a lot of A3s out there looking for an alternative to the sia mining pools. Although there are only two coins I know of (one not yet listed on an exchange), it could bring in a lot of people who want to use their kit to mine for charity, or mine for new ALT coins. Right now, I doubt solo mining is an option for Blake 2. Other Pool's fees for Blake is higher than most other algos.

PS: After you get the CN algo online of course. Tons of X3, Baikal, Dragonmint miners looking for a way to avoid shareware pool software which doesn't guarantee a payout if you have to switch coins.

I'll look into this algorithm next. I remember that there were a lot of people who wanted this algorithm, but I only found a few coins for it and was wondering why there was so much interest. But it could be a while, because I first want to make sure that all the existing algorithms are optimized and working as best as they can.

Sia and Hyperspace are the only ones I mine - Pool fees are circa 3% plus if you want to trade for another coin, it is a minimum of say 0.1% on Binance and many others.

And you want to switch pools to here and pay 4.99% instead of 3% for pool fees?

Blake2B wouldn't that be a solo mining pool?
If there were 5 coins to swap between and always be on the highest that would be awesome.
But with only having 1 or 2 coins....seems like a static mine not a retargetable one.
