F2pool administration announces halt to ETH mining
All remuneration to miners to be paid after ‘merger’
Pool does not support fork and admits, the era of PoW-ether is over
Major mining pool f2pool will stop mining ETH following a network refresh. All miners will receive funds upon completion of the “merger”, which can later be withdrawn to other sites.
This was announced by the platform administration today, September 7. In a note, it is stated that the platform fully supports the transition to PoS, and the pool will continue to operate as normal until the Merge is completed.
In the meantime, the administration invites everyone to continue mining cryptocurrency through other avenues. In particular, ETC can be mined through f2pool.
The Ethereum Classic project is experiencing a surge in demand amid the launch of the PoS version of ether. As a reminder, Cardano’s founder called the resource “dead”, for which he was criticised by the community.
The f2pool administration has asked all users to verify that the addresses are working or attach new accounts. A settlement will be made when the “merger” is complete. More information on how to do this is in the guide on the pool’s official website.
As for the PoW fork, the pool administration said the following:
“It makes no difference whether we support this fork or not. We admit, the ETHW era is over, let’s welcome the network to PoS together”.
