Binance launched its mining pool “Binance Pool”
Changpeng Zhao, founder, and CEO at Binance said:
“As an integral part of the global crypto market, empowering miners will therein enable significant growth and scale in the larger industry. With Binance Pool, we aim to establish a comprehensive platform for miners that will bring more possibilities to the mining industry by bridging traditional mining to financial services.”
The first block ever mined by the @Binance Mining Pool. Still in closed-beta. Going live soon.
As always, LOWEST FEES of any mining pool.

The mining pool will support both PoW and PoS consensus mechanisms for mining
The press release shared with Finance Magnates detailed that the mining pool will support both Proof-of-Work (PoW) and Proof-of-Stake (PoS) consensus mechanisms for mining. However, initially, only Bitcoin mining services will be offered.
With a 0 percent mining fee, the new Bitcoin mining pool has added almost 36,000 workers generating a total hashrate of 1.73 EH per second, as of press time.
Notably, other key Binance competitors – OKEx and Huobi – are also offering similar services. Both exchanges launched their own mining pools in August and September last year, respectively, which quickly gained their spot in the list of top ten mining pools.
Meanwhile, BytePool, one of the top ten Bitcoin mining pools, shuts its operations to jump into the altcoin market. Binance has a massive user base on its exchange platform and now the platform is expanding to every possible crypto-related business, creating a monopoly in the market.
Its recent acquisition of Coinmarketcap.com, a crypto market data aggregator, for $400 million raised a lot of eyebrows in the industry as it is a go-to platform for traders. The exchange also launched a new proprietary blockchain recently, supporting smart contracts and all existing apps on Ethereum.
