Merge Mining

Merge mining is a process that enables miners to mine more than one blockchain at a time and allows two different cryptocurrencies to be mined simultaneously. The individual blockchains of the two coins are classified as the Parent and Auxiliary, with the Auxiliary being inserted into the section of the parent blockchain. The miners then use the same algorithm to hash and secure both blocks being rewarded by each blockchain for the computing power deployed. As Syscoin was forked from Bitcoin it shares the same hash algorithm SHA256 for mining. Merge mining helps Syscoin to increase the overall hash power securing the network riding on computing power deployed to other blockchain networks.
