The world has stopped but the blocks keep coming. Here’s this week’s mining news:

  1. Both Bitcoin SV (BSV) and Bitcoin Cash (BCH) went through their halving events last week. Bitcoin Cash is currently experiencing large oscillating swings in hashrate due to its difficulty adjustment algorithm and miners are switching between mining BCH and other SHA-256 coins.
  2. Bitcoin Cash’s (BCH) developer fund proposal seems to have lost most of its support, although the code to activate it still remains in the Bitcoin ABC codebase. Bitcoin ABC is also currently raising funding from its community, and questions have risen whether the developer fund is being used as a bargaining chip.
  3. If you’re looking to learn more about the cutting edge of the mining industry, Marty Bent, host of Tales from the Crypt, interviews two of his fellow team members at the newly un-stealthed Great American Mining company, which is working with oil and gas companies to use their stranded gas (otherwise flared and wasted) to mine Bitcoin.
