  • Ethereum Classic (ETC) miners can now configure their rigs to mine Zilliqa (ZIL) too.

  • ETC/USD has gone up, even though the rest of the coins in the market faced bearish correction.

Ethereum Classic (ETC) miners can now configure their rigs to mine Zilliqa (ZIL) as well. This new feature was launched recently after a period of Beta testing where miners gave their feedback and improvement proposals to the team at Ezil.me.

Ezil.me team has asked anyone interested in carrying out dual mining to visit their mining instructions page for information on how to set up their ETC rigs to connect to their mining pool. The mining of ETC and Zilliqa will be automatically switched between the two blockchains using a set time period.

Once you connect to our pool we will redirect you to the one of the biggest an allegedly most profitable pools, https://etc.ethermine.org/, before the start of ZIL round (every 1,5 hours) will automatically switch your rig to ZIL mining, and once ZIL round is over you will be seamlessly switched back to mining ETC. No action required from you, the process runs just like your regular ETC mining.

A few days back, Ethereum Classic highlighted the possibility of miner migration from Ethereum to ETC once Proof-of-Stake is activated with ETH 2.0. This is because miners’ equipment is becoming unusable in the mining of the old Proof-of-Work algorithm of Ethereum. The ETC blockchain is similar to the Ethereum blockchain and miners can easily switch to Ethereum Classic. Now they have the added incentive to migrate because of the ability to dual mine ETC and Zilliqa (ZIL).
