RX2 Mining Softwares & informations

Starting with block 1612500 (estimated February 18, 2021), LUX will be switching to the new RX2 mining algorithm. This update will give you some useful information about how to mine the new algorithm. Note: Ensure the pool you are mining on has updated their wallet as any pool that has not updated before the fork will not be using the new algorithm and mined blocks will not be on the correct chain, meaning you will not earn a share in block rewards. Pool owners should contact Luxcore with any questions about updating their wallets.

Test your mining equipment/software on the testnet pool any time before the fork to ensure you are ready to go!
