e·thos, noun: the characteristic spirit of a culture, era, or community as manifested in its beliefs and aspirations.
Recently, many people have expressed interest in mining other digital currencies on ethOS (not just Ethereum). Since many ethOS users are not large-scale farmers, we have decided to expand the ethOS project scope to better serve all of our loyal customers.
To that effect, we will make the following changes to the ethOS project scope in the near immediate future:
We will soon be adding support for a Zcash GPU mining program. Please note that Zcash's extremely new ecosystem demands special precautions; we will not support any GPU mining program that unfairly rewards any particular developer, pool, or team, nor any that are unstable/non-stratum.
Single-rig ethOS users will be happy to hear about the new ethOS browser-based terminal, which will allow setup and configuration of ethOS rigs by connecting to their IP addresses via a regular computer web browser.
Both of these features will be rolled out in the next update of ethOS, ethOS 1.1.3
As a special thanks to all ethOS users, the zcash GPU mining program (as all new features) will be provided free of charge to all existing ethOS customers. Furthermore, we will not take any fees from any GPU mining program running on ethOS.
