    Tips: ZCash and BEAM use different EquiHash parameters and are not compatible in mining.

  • Cuckoo Cycle

    Tips: Grin supports Cuckaroo Cycle 29 and Cuckatoo Cycle 31 at the same time, miners can choose an algorithm to mine.

  • Blake-256
  • Tensority
  • Eaglesong
    • Ckb (finished but the test is not enough)

    Tips: only Tested with bminer and nbminer. need to be updated after the new version of ckb is released.
