In our Zcash announcement we mentioned that we expected hashrate efficiency to improve as we worked to prepare for the launch. After days of hard work we’re glad to announce that our efforts on the Zcash mining software has been successful and we have tripled the Zcash hashpower of every user that obtained a contract before 12th October 2016 13:00 UTC at no cost to the user!
Next up in our Altcoin Report series: Zcash. But first, we’re happy to announce that Zcash mining contracts are available for pre-order, in preparation for it’s launch on 28th October, 2016.
You may have seen a teases regarding our plan to send Bitcoin “To the Moon!” as they say… Well we’re happy to share with you that Genesis Mining recently conducted the first ever Peer2Peer Transaction in space! A few weeks ago we went to the United Kingdom to send a 3D model of a Bitcoin with a paper wallet fixed on the back all the way into space with the help of a weather balloon.
If you’re a Genesis Mining customer, we do the hard work for you in setting up the hardware and software. For those of you running your own mining operation, however, it can get exhausting installing, optimizing and managing multiple miners for coins. We weren’t a big fan of that. So, we decided to fix it.
Let’s continue with the next coin in our Altcoin Report Series: Monero. But first some great news! You can start to mine Monero beginning today!
