Bitmain announces support for Ethereum mining

Announcements | June 2, 2016 By:

Bitmain added support for Ethereum mining on Antpool on May 28 and is welcoming all Ethereum enthusiasts to point their rigs at a new mining pool with a solid reputation.

Currently, Ethereum Antpool mining pool does not provide a PPS payout structure and it remains uncertain if it will be added in the future. However, PPLNS is an equally viable payout structure for Ethereum miners.

“This will help the Ethereum network to achieve a more diversified mining market and Antpool will be able to serve a new growing area, including the GPU mining community,” said Bitmain CEO and co-founder Wu Jihan.

Bitmain is a bitcoin mining hardware manufacturer.
