Time to Start with the DOGE and LTC Merged Mining

11 Sep


We are expecting the merged mining support for Dogecoin and Litecoin that was announced to start after DOGE block 371337 to happen any moment now (less than 100 blocks remaining), so if you are currently mining Dogecoin you might want to move to a pool with merged mining support. You should be able to mine directly for Litecoin and also get Dogecoin additionally, however in order to be able to do that you will have to use a pool that has already implemented DOGE and LTC merged mining support. Do note that merged mining of DOGE can happen with other Scrypt coins as well and not only with LTC, so some pools may have enabled merged mining of Dogecoin with other Scrypt crypto coins. We have prepared a list of pools that have already announced that are ready with merged mining support and as soon as we move past the block that should act as a starting point of the support you should start getting paid in LTC and DOGE by just mining for Litecoin. You will still be able to separately mine only DOGE, however there is not going to be much point in that when you can get the same amount of DOGE extra while mining for LTC in a pool supporting merged mining. There are still not a lot of pools supporting AuxPow merged mining, but we’ll probably see some more adding support in the next few days…

Pools with LTC and DOGE merged mining:

Do note that that the AuxPow or merged mining support comes with a hardfork for the DOGE, so you will need to update your wallet to continue using it after block 371337, so if you still haven’t updated to version 1.8 of the Dogecoin wallet than it is time to do the upgrade. Have in mind that the update will require you to reindex the blockchain and that can take some time to complete.

Simple Multi (formerly Simple Doge) is another pool that has supported AuxPow at launch.

WeMineLTC.com is a bit behind right now, they have a place where you can put a wallet in, but they haven’t turned it fully on yet.
