GRIN hard fork at block #786240

Within the next day, a GRIN hard fork will occur at block 786,240. The algorithm will change from Cuckaroom29 to Cuckarooz29.

What does this mean?

When the fork takes place, miners will need to update their software to versions that support Cuckarooz29.

At this point, the following mining software is available that supports the new algorithm:

  • bminer (at least version 16.2.8)
  • gminer (at least version 2.17)

The following pools and services are prepared for the fork:

How do I prepare?

  • Download either of the software mentioned above
  • Verify that the pools that you’re using are prepared for the transition


By running an updated version of either bminer or gminer, your devices will automatically update in Foreman and you will experience no monitoring downtime.

Additionally, the Cuckarooz29 algorithm has been added and NiceHash (hk, eu, in, usa, br, and jp regions) and MiningRigRentals profitability will continue to be updated and displayed throughout the fork.

Stay tuned for more updates! If you have any questions, contact us on Discord, Twitter, or send us an email!
