Announcement: Cuckoo Algorithm Pool Hashrate Adjustment

The Cuckoo algorithm is used by a number of currencies, including Grin and Aeternity. Due to unique characteristics of the algorithm, the hashrate shown on the mining pool and the hashrate shown on the miner backend is different, due to different statistical methods.  The hashrate shown in the miner backend is based on the hashrate of the miner. Whereas the hashrate shown in the mining pool is based on the data received from the connected miner (the data submitted by the miner is the speed of the “Graph” which is used to calculate the hashrate). The Cuckoo algorithm requires the miner to complete N times hash calculations before submitting one graph. Because of this, the hashrate shown in the miner… Read More ›
