As we mentioned in our previous blog post we have been planning a transition algorithm to fight against credit miners/botnets while awaiting for MTP which is still on track for release in late March 2017.
We have now released the new Zcoin wallet (release v0.2.0) with this change in place. It is recommended to update immediately by heading to our Releases page.
There are also numerous bug fixes especially with regards to those experiencing sync issues.
We also expect to release CPU and GPU miners in the next 24 hours which will be posted on Github. Coding for those miners have been completed but we are still testing. All the major pools and exchanges have been informed.
If you want to help out with testing the miners, you can join our Slack. Initial results show a slight GPU advantage of 2-3:1.
