Largest Ethereum Mining Pool Stops Supporting ETH PoW Mining after The Merge - ETH PoW mining will be no longer supported by Ethermine, the world’s largest Ethereum mining Pool after The Merge.

    Ethermine, the world’s biggest Ethereum mining pool (making up more than 27% of Ethereum’s global hash rate), announced it will no longer offer ETH PoW mining services after Ethereum switches to PoS (Proof-of-State) mechanism.

    This mining pool also confirmed that it will not support any other ETH PoW fork, meaning ETH mining servers will be shut down completely. Users, instead, can continue to use ASIC miners and GPU graphics cards to mine Ethermine-supported cryptocurrencies, including Ethereum Classic (ETC), Ravencoin (RVN), Ergo (ERGO), and Beam (BEAM).

    The Merge is the most important upgrade in Ethereum history which is expected to launch around 4:23 UTC on Thursday. The Merge will mark a full transition from proof-of-work (PoW) to proof-of-stake (PoS), eliminating the need for energy-intensive mining and instead securing the network with staked ETH.
