Emercoin is now merge-mined with Bitcoin using the same SHA-256 Proof-of-Work (PoW) algorithm.

Merge-mining enhances Emercoin's blockchain security model as Emercoin can benefit from mining power directed to the Bitcoin network.

Any pool that mines Bitcoin can now also mine Emercoin as well.

  • The largest known pool that supports EMC merge-mining is https://mergemining.com
