BTC.com to Mine ETH and ETC

New pool will support the mining with video cards and CPUs

Sponsored by the Chinese mining giant Bitmain, BTC.com mining pool expands its service by adding the ability to mine Ethereum and Ethereum Classic, CoinDesk reports.

BTC.com, which claims that its share accounted for 21% of all blocks of bitcoin mined last year, will add new functionality on its portal pool.btc.com. The service will allow the miners to switch their hash capacity from one pool to another, depending on what it seems most appropriate in a specific market environment.

According to the announcement, thus BTC.com wants to "help Ethereum to scale its mining infrastructure".

GPU miners are versatile, still profitable and are not easily replaced in a bear market. It's common for miners to split investment into both. Also, there are already ASIC miners for ethereum and ethereum classic which are easier to set up and are dedicated to ethash mining. This will save us from supporting a huge list of GPU coins simultaneously.

Company note that the new pool will support the mining with video cards and CPUs, despite the fact that this year Bitmain released its own ASIC-miner, focused on the Ethereum.

In the future, BTC.com may launch other mining pools targeting "popular coins", such as Litecoin, ZCash and Monero, but Zhuang refrained from more specific applications. Before any decision is taken, the company needs to evaluate the network of the cryptocurrency, the quality of its code, the roadmap and the volume of trades, he explained.
