All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
Blakecoin (BLC) and Photon (PHO) are two crypto currencies based on the Blake 256 algorithm and there are already two pools available where you can do merged mining of the two coins. The work on adding merged mining for Blake-256 algorithm coins has been going on for some time by the developer of the Blake-256 algorithm and it seems that he has finally been able to make things work properly.
Blake-256 Algorithm GPU miners:
– Cgminer 3.7.2 with Blake-256 support for AMD
– Cgminer 3.1.1 with Blake-256 support for AMD
– CudaMiner with Blake-256 support for Nvidia
– ccMiner with Blake-256 support for Nvidia
Do note that the merged mining pools listed above are still in beta and there could still be some small issues, though our initial testing has shown that they are running pretty well already. Hopefully the availability of merged mining pools will boost the popularity of the Blake-256 algorithm and the coins that use it such as Blakecoin as they are indeed interesting.
