March was an eventful and fruitful month for 2Miners. Grin is finally here. Monero has thrown away FPGA/ASIC devices. Aiming for transparency of the cryptocurrency industry 2Miners has revealed its income and welcomes other crypto projects to join.
2Miners Pool Reveals Its Monthly Profits
Mining pools are the arteries of the crypto industry. Transparency of the crypto project and particularly mining pools is important. The 2Miners team believes in transparency and opens its monthly income. It can be viewed on a special Open Project page of the pool.
We encourage other mining pools to join the transparent mining pools movement as well.
How much does 2Miners earn and why is transparency so important for the crypto industry? Read more in our article.
HUSH and BTCP Delisting
In January and February, 2 coins have been already delisted from 2Miners: ANON and WHL. 2 more coins have been delisted in March: HUSH and Bitcoin Private (BTCP).
These pools were requiring a lot of resources but their rewards were extremely low. Moreover, we’ve called these rewards “potential” as we had a problem with these coin exchanging for many months. It was simply impossible to change/sell these assets.
Detailed calculation and all the delisting reasons are presented in our special post HUSH and Bitcoin Private (BTCP) delisting from 2Miners on March, 22nd.
Monero CryptoNightR Update
Monero (XMR) hashrate has increased dramatically during the previous months. It was obvious that some FPGA or ASIC devices have been developed and launched. XMR developers have changed the mining algorithm from CryptoNightV8 to CryptoNightR on block 1788000 (March 9).
We have successfully updated our pools. At first, the block time was far from regular (too high) due to the delay in difficulty adjustment. Now everything is stable and we could see that ~80% of network hashrate was gone.
Please remember to update your mining software! All the major XMR miners have released the new miners for CryptoNightR algorithm. You could also download our ready to go version of the miner on the XMR Help page.
Our pools support both Grin mining algorithms: Cuckaroo C29 and Cuckatoo C31. We automatically detect the algorithm set in the miner and provide the job required. Grin payout system differs from other coins on 2Miners, therefore, we’ve made a special login generator on the Grin Help page.
It is mandatory to always keep your local GRIN wallet online to receive the payouts from the pool. This is the reason why we recommend using the GRIN address generated on one of the supported crypto exchanges.
