mining.bitcoin.cz entering a new era: "Slush Pool 2.0"Prague, Czech Republic, 2013-09-25
When I launched mining.bitcoin.cz in late 2010 I didn't really expect the pooled mining concept to become such a success. At the beginning, mining was accessible rather to geeks but gradually the expectations towards a mining pool service have changed a lot.
My goal now is to introduce completely new features and cutting-edge technologies that will make mining accessible to newcomers as well as keep mining.bitcoin.cz attractive for advanced users.
A few months ago I started to make preparations for a new edition of the pool - Slush Pool 2.0. The changes will be gradual and will lead to better user experience. The result should be simply a stronger pool with some great new benefits for you.
