The official Beta launch of BCmultipool was conducted at 16:00 GMT. The beginning of the launch was pretty successful, with Scrypt power exceeding 100 GH/s. However due to the enormous server-load proved to be so overwhelming that even the SHA256 protocol had to be shut down to keep the servers floating.
After the dev got fed up trying to fix the problem he/she threw the towel in the ring and called it quits. Needless to say that the BCMultiPool.com will be down and won’t be coming back online.
According to our sources, the multipool developer has trusted the source upon Soepkip and rat4 to be able to run BlackCoinPool in the near future.
Partnered up with a team of crypto fanatics that that also strongly believe in what BlackCoin represents, they will try and make it work. However, they have existing crypto projects in development, but were able to convince the BlackCoin multipool developer to entrust them with the source code.
It was originally written to create a superior new multipool, and they will ensure this vision is continued. This will probably be on a new domain that claims to have “complete transparency”, and it will be operational as soon as it is humanly possible.
The team consists of GNU_user, a jack-of-all trades coder with a passion and extensive cryptography experience, who created the Tinfoil-SMS app, @adarkvox, an information security officer for a large company in the US and thirdly OpulentOwl, the designer and owner of http://dogeofwallstreet.com. They will pick up where the original developer left off, and hopefully get BlackcoinPool up and running as soon as possible.
There hasn’t been an ETA set for the new multipool, but we are being told that a team is actively engaged at this moment in setting up a new server. This could mean that people don’t have to wait too long on the new multipool.
Whatever the case, let’s hope they get their act together so Blackcoin mining can get back on track.
