Multi-cryptocurrency mining pool MinerGate adds Ethereum Classic support

Announcements | July 28, 2016 By:

MinerGate has announced the support of Ethereum Classic mining.

Ethereum Classic mining on MinerGate can be done through the platform’s own GUI Miner, or by using either Ethminer or Genoil.

“The decision was made out of a deep conviction that Ethereum could thrive without manual actions [the hardfork] in the first place, as officially stated by our CEO. Having this in mind, MinerGate couldn’t miss the opportunity to encourage the development of the untouched original Ethereum blockchain,” said MinerGate.

MinerGate mining pool is created by a group of cryptocoin enthusiasts. It is the first pool which provides service for merged mining. This means that while mining on MinerGate, you can mine different coins simultaneously without decrease of hash rate for major coin.
