The growth continues for SVPool, the public mining pool for Bitcoin Cash (BCH).
As of Friday, SVPool already accounts for 8.33% of the Bitcoin BCH global hash power, according to data from Coin Dance. Trailing behind SVPool are Bitcoin.com (6.94%), ViaBTC and BTC.com (5.56%), followed by BTC.top and Waterhole (3.47%), Antpool and Northern Bitcoin (2.08%), P2Pool (1.39%), with Houbi and F2Pool bringing up the rear with 0.69%. CoinGeek still leads the pack with 24.31%, followed by BMG Pool and OKMiner with 12.5% each. Other mining pools account for 9.03% of the BCH hash power.
On a seven-day basis, SVPool is also up to 4.4%. This period of growth comes as the public mining pool onboards over 30,000 miners—less than two weeks after it opened for business.
SVPool is a personal initiative of nChain Chief Scientist Dr. Craig Wright. It operates under the “miners choice, miners first philosophy,” offering zero fees to miners and launching with initial Pay-per-last-N-shares (PPLNS). It plans to add more features and Pay-per-share plus (PPS+) options in the coming weeks.
The public mining pool is managed by CoinGeek Mining and proudly runs the Bitcoin SV full node implementation, which is designed to fulfil the Satoshi Vision for Bitcoin.
Unlike other competing BCH implementations, such as Bitcoin ABC, that seek to experiment with unnecessary technical changes to the Bitcoin protocol, Bitcoin SV’s roadmap will restore the original Satoshi protocol, keep it stable, enable the BCH network to massively scale, and professionalize Bitcoin. The Bitcoin SV implementation will allow global enterprises to confidently operate and build their major projects on a stable, scalable BCH protocol.
SVPool is open to all public miners on the Bitcoin BCH network who want to generate more long-term revenue. The mining pool, however, is not just for BCH miners—BTC miners who believe in Bitcoin’s original vision are also invited to begin mining BCH with SVPool.
