Slush Pool urged miners to postpone the software update on Antminer S9



The oldest mining pool in the history of the Slush Pool cryptocurrency called the owners of the Antminer S9 mining devices from the manufacturer Bitmain not to upgrade to the latest firmware, which is incompatible with the BIP130 standard and the pool. The organization promised to solve the problem as soon as possible.

Prominent community representatives suggested that the release of Bitmain with support for the AsicBoost optimization algorithm triggered a study by Braiins System’s Slush Pool operator, in which it proved that Antminer S9 devices are compatible with this technology, but the limitations are in the software component.

Trader WhalePanda noted that Bitmain is afraid of the transfer of miners to the operating system Braiins OS, which will make Slush Pool the default pool, significantly harming AntPool and positions.

Recall, the operating system bOS was introduced in September.
