Vanillacoin (VNL) Forking from WhirlpoolX to Blake256 Algorithm

27 Jan


Vanillacoin (VNL) has forked to Blake256 as the default Proof-of-Work algorithm from the previously used WhirlpoolX algo, so you need to upgrade your wallet to the new version 0.4.3 and update your mining software as well to support the new Blake algorithm. Do note that the Blake256 algorithm used by Vanillacoin is not exactly the same as the one used by BlakeCoin as VNL uses double sha256 instead of single sha256. Tpruvot has already added support for the new Vanillacoin algorithm in his ccMiner fork (source), so you can use that for mining on Nvidia GPUs and soon we’ll probably see it in other forks as well. Support for the new Blake256 algorithm used by Vanillacoin is also available in a forked cpuminer-multi CPU miner (source) if you want to try CPU mining VNL. Below you can download updated Windows binaries for CPU mining (cpuminer-multi x64), Nvidia GPU mining (ccMiner) and AMD GPU mining (cgminer) if you want to try mining Vanillacoin with the new Blake256 algorithm.

Pool that work and have switched to Blake256 already:

VNL is being traded on Bittrex and Poloniex, though trading/depoit/withdraw may be temporary suspended due to the fork until they upgrade their wallets.
