Etchash Algorithm Coins

Etchash Mining Algorithm Specification, Features and Requirements

Etchash is a heavyweight PoW algorithm used by Ethereum Classic. The algorithm is different, because it uses the DAG file that is loaded into GPU memory at the moment of miner launch. An epoch change takes place every 60000 blocks and leads to an increase in size of the DAG file by 8 MB.

Ethereum Classic are mined using NVIDIA and AMD graphics cards.

On November 28 Ethereum Classic has performed hardfork to reduce the DAG file 2 times, allowing weaker GPU's to mine this algorithm. Nicehash and ASIC devices don't support etchash algorithm.

Default mining profit is calculated for 300 Nvidia 1070Ti GPUs with total hashrate: 9300 Mh/s on Etchash
