Another PascalCoin (PASC) pool, one brought by Suprnova, seems to be now open for beta testing, though apparently not fully functional. The new pool brings much better support and functionality as compared to the first available pool from Nanopool, so you might want to check it out. The PASC Suprnova pool offers Stratum support and comes with the familiar sgminer with support for mining PascalCoin on both AMD and Nvidia GPUs, though apparently a version of ccMiner will also soon be available for Nvidia miners… there is also a Windows and Linux miner available.
The pool has not yet found its first block and the payment part does not seem to be fully functional yet, but you can still try the miner and point some hashrate to help in testing things out. The pool fee is 1% and you should be able to do manual payout and not have a minimum payout limit, also stats is working much better and reported hashrate is quite accurate on miner/poolside, the stratum support also should ensure better efficiency. We have given a try of the Windows miner and have noticed it does tend to have a pretty high CPU and memory usage, but it does still seem to work well.
This is the kind of a promotion that crypto miners will definitely like in time for the Black Friday – pools with zero fees and 5% bonus on the coins mined and Suprnova has just that – some pools that are offering you just that for today. The promotion runs for the following pools: DASH, DCR, EXP, LBRY, ZEC, ZCL, so if you are mining any of these coins you might want to do it at the Suprnova pool and get the Black Friday bonuses.

After the announcement of the first HODL mining pool there was a centralization of most of the network hashrate in that pool as many people moved away from solo mining. Now we have a second HOdlcoin mining pool from Suprnova available, so you can move your hashrate there in order to balance out the hashrate distribution among the two pools and with the solo miners things should be safer for the HODL network. Of course having a few more pools won’t hurt either, but even with two mining pools things are significantly better than with just one, so this is definitely a move in the right direction.
In order to mine HODL with the new Suprnova pool you can use the same dedicated hodlminer CPU miner (source) available for download below in the form of a Windows binary. If this is the first time you are hearing about HOdlcoin (HODL) you might want to get to know about the altcoin a bit more as it has an interesting idea and bonuses for early adopters. Also the new Suprnova pool has a fee of just 1% as compared to the fee of 2% for the Blockquarry Hodl Pool, so this can also be a reason enough for some miners to switch and try the new pool. Do note that the Suprnova HODL pool was just launched, so there might be some things that need to be fixed, though it seems that the mining part is working just fine already.
