Billed as a way of giving thanks for the “longstanding support and dedication” of their miners, the All Coins’ Carnival will be open to existing and new miners until September 18.
The promotion kicked off in June, and has already proven popular amongst miners looking to save on fees across the full range of supported cryptocurrencies, including Bitcoin Cash (BCH).
AntPool mined their first block back in March 2014, and just five months later, launched their mining platform to the market at large. Today, AntPool stands as the single biggest mining pool for cryptocurrency by hash rate.The platform has become popular for both its performance and profitability in the years since, with AntPool attributing its success to the loyalty and support of its community of miners.
In a press release announcing the All Coins’ Carnival, AntPool described how zero-fee transactions would give a boost to existing miners, while creating a positive climate for first-time miners.
“When AntPool mined its first block in March of 2014, we realized…this was just the tip of the iceberg. AntPool had just unlocked an incredible opportunity into the then ‘new world’ of…cryptocurrency. Five months later in August 2014, AntPool launched to the public and since has worked tirelessly to create, adapt and update the most state-of-the-art cryptocurrency mining platform in the world to continually provide superior performance and high profitability,” according to the company. “The AntPool family understands that none of this would have been possible without the longstanding support and dedication from our miners. To thank our current miners and to welcome in future miners, we have ushered in the All Coins Carnival. AntPool’s zero fee for transaction module was designed with the community in mind. Thus, you never lose focus on your dynamic mining strategy, bolstering your mining power and boosting your profits.”
The AntPool All Coins Carnival looks like it could be worthwhile, especially for new miners looking to get a foothold in mining without fees until September. However, it’s worth remembering that Bitcoin BCH remains the best platform to use for crypto payments, all year round.
Note: Tokens on the Bitcoin Core (segwit) Chain are Referred to as BTC coins. Bitcoin Cash (BCH) is today the only Bitcoin implementation that follows Satoshi Nakamoto’s original whitepaper for Peer to Peer Electronic Cash. Bitcoin BCH is the only major public blockchain that maintains the original vision for Bitcoin as fast, frictionless, electronic cash.
