The BEAM hard fork will occur at block 777777 on 2020-06-28 UTC. The mining algorithm will change from BeamHash II to BeamHash III after the hard fork, and many previous versions of mining software will no longer work.
To prevent any missed mining revenue, we strongly advise our miners to use mining software which will automatically switch the mining algorithm. Please read our BEAM Mining Guide and configure algorithm auto-switch, so your mining machine can mine normally after the hard fork.
