All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
It was anticipated that VertCoin (VTC) will hardfork to the new Lyra2RE algorithm at around 16th this month at block 208301, however we have reached the fork a bit earlier. So if you are mining VertCoin you should switch to the new Lyra2RE GPU miners and to pools that have already switched to the new algorithm. Some people have anticipated that after the fork the price of VTC will increase, but this did not happen as currently VertCoin is quite profitable to mine and sell directly and apparently a lot of people are doing exactly this resulting in exchange rate dropping. This is just the first day after the fork, so we should wait and see how the Lyra2RE fork will affect VTC – will it help the coin or on the contrary.
