Announcement: Pascal Coin (PASC) hard fork

Dear miners, The Pascal Coin (PASC) hard fork will occur at block 378,000 at approximately 2019-12-12 20:00:00 UTC. The hard fork will upgrade the PASC mining algorithm from RandomHash to RandomHash2. It is expected that no new coins will be created due to the hard fork. Please note: After the hard fork, the new algorithm is not optimized for GPU mining, and we recommend CPU mining. After the hard fork, you need to restart your mining software to enable the software to mine the new algorithm. Poloniex exchange no longer supports PASC trading. Currently, Vite Wallet and TOKOK Exchange support PASC. Thank you for your continued support. F2Pool Team 2019-12-12 Read More ›

Announcement: ZEC Hard Fork

Dear miners, The Zcash (ZEC) hard fork will occur at block 653600 around 2019-12-11 21:00:00 UTC. This network upgrade reduces the block production time of ZEC from 150 seconds to 75 seconds. To ensure the total amount of newly-produced coins every day remains unchanged, the block reward will be halved. Furthermore, the ZEC transaction confirmation speed will increase, and the expected mining revenue will not change. Please note: Miners using wallets of exchanges or third-party platforms should pay attention to any announcement related to ZEC deposits and withdrawals, and confirm that wallet addresses will remain the same. Miners using full node wallets need to upgrade to version 2.1.0-1 or above. Following the hard fork, the block rewards will be halved… Read More ›
