Mining on æternity

Ever since the Ethereum merge and the Proof of Stake switch, there has been a hash power vacuum in the crypto mining ecosystem. The æternity blockchain, as one of the longest-running and most resilient Proof of Work blockchains, comes to the fore as the best option for all crypto mining efforts.

Profitable mining

Mining is the cornerstone for any and all Proof of Work blockchains out there, seeing as how it is what guarantees the security and stability of the entire framework. Through mining, blockchain power is unleashed- all who take part can contribute hash power and make sure that the æternity blockchain persists, along with all that it stands for persists. That, and obtaining a reward for their work, of course.

The æternity blockchain has an inherent, long-standing link with the very concept of Proof of Work and will, as such, remain on the barricades as the best place for all miners to mine — be it solo or in a pool. (For pools, we recommend 2miners or Woolypooly).
