Zcoin Implements ASIC Resistant Merkle Tree Proof (MTP) Crypto Mining

03:19 Thursday , December 06th 2018
Zcoin implemented a new mining algorithm that hampers FPGA, ASIC, and botnet mining. Merkle Tree proof of work (MTP) has the potential to move cryptocurrency mining away from huge farms and back into the hands of crypto enthusiasts, once again decentralizing mining.
Merkle Tree proof of work mining is a solution implemented to remedy the issues faced by small-time miners. Most mining algorithms are susceptible to FPGAs and ASICs, mining hardware which is far more efficient than readily available computer hardware.
