Upcoming BEAM Hard Fork

The BEAM hard fork will occur at block 777777 on 2020-06-28 UTC. 

The mining algorithm changed from BeamHash II to BeamHash III after the hard fork. Many previous versions of mining software will no longer work.

The following mining software will switch to the new mining algorithm automatically:

    • Bminer 16.2.2 (AMD and Nvidia cards, with more than 5GB card memory)
    • lolMiner  (AMD and Nvidia cards, with more than 6GB card memory)

To prevent any missed mining revenue, we strongly advise our miners to use mining software which can automatically switch the mining algorithm. Please read the BEAM mining tutorial and configure the algorithm auto switch, so your mining machine can mine normally after the hard fork.

For any miners using the official full node wallet, please make sure to update your wallet to Eager Electron 5.0. Wallets that are not updated in time will not receive mining revenue. Miners who are using exchange wallets, please keep an eye on announcements from the exchange.
