Chia Forks

farming many blockchains

After successfully enhancing my Machinaris web application to support distributed workers on multiple machines, I realized that adoption would be dependant upon growing the eco-system of crypto use-cases supported. This meant supporting the farming of more than just the Chia blockchain, but other forks of the Chia blockchain as well.

As an open-source project, the Chia blockchain has been forked by numerous other groups since its launch. This has provided a number of alternative proof-of-space-and-time (PoST) blockchains for Chia farmers to farm their Chia plot files.

As each blockchain runs isolated in its own container, each is available as in the Unraid Community Apps, and also via the Machinaris launch wizard.

So, now the Workers page lists each container, running on each system for each blockchain.

Support for additional blockchains is being added regularly, as voted on by the Machinaris community.
