As you’ve probably seen on Twitter, the #iamaminer contest has been up and running for a week now. We’ve had a great turnout so far, and love how diverse and wide-ranging your tweets have been.

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.
