For a long time, the MinerGate pool was supportive of the Monero Original cryptocurrency. However, the MinerGate team recently decided to move its support from Monero Original to Monero-Classic.

ZCash is soon to make a forthcoming upgrade. ZCash’s official website says that a new version of the blockchain will start after an activation of block 419200, that will supposedly be mined on October 29.
One of the most popular third-party mining solutions among MinerGate’s users – XMRig – appeared to have a critical bug in its codebase, making the mining of the updated Monero (XMR) within MinerGate XMR mining pool impossible.
Our Monero (XMR) mining pool is already set up to support the upcoming Monero hardfork with our recently released GUI miner for Windows. Please update your software to continue mining Monero. In the meantime, we will be testing other versions to make sure you get the smoothest and safest XMR mining experience.
Dear miners, MinerGate team is glad to inform you that we intend to support the upcoming hard fork of the Monero (XMR) network. Scheduled on the block height of 1685555, the approximate date of the network update is October 18, 2018.
