First BCH Blocks Mined By Dr. Craig Wright’s SVPool
At 2:12 p.m. UTC on Oct. 10, a 7.15MB block was mined at block height 55185, which accounts for 25 transactions. This marked the event of Bitcoin Cash (BCH) mining pool SVPool, which officially mined its first Bitcoin BCH block.
SVPool is a personal initiative of Craig Wright, a Bitcoin developer and a prominent leader in the industry. SVPool is currently on a by-invitation-only beta launch until late October. After that, SVPool will open up to the public.
Signing Up For The Mining Pool
Hundreds of mining registrants around the world have already signed up for SVPool—a huge jump from the 233 miners that pre-registered in September. Majority of these miners are from the United States, China, United Kingdom, Canada, Australia, and India. The mining pool also has miners from Spain, South Africa, Brazil, Germany, South Korea, Japan, Malaysia, Sweden, Venezuela, Russia, Switzerland, and the Netherlands, among others.
SVPool is currently on a by-invitation-only beta launch until late October. After that, SVPool will open up to the public. You can still sign up here for the mining pool.
CoinGeek Week Miners Day
If you are a miner, you can visit CoinGeek Week Miners Day, taking place on 28 November 2018 as part of the CoinGeek Week Conference in London, where the SVPool and CoinGeek team will be on-hand to discuss how you can help Bitcoin BCH realize its full potential. The rates of the tickets costs anywhere between £800 – £1,500.
Notably, SVPool is managed by CoinGeek Mining and will help and remunerate miners—large or small—to ensure BCH remains a truly trustless and decentralized system. The public mining pool stands in solidarity with CoinGeek in the belief that BCH is the only true Bitcoin that fulfills that Satoshi Vision.
