Congratulation you just posted +1 more than your activity Cheesy that must've be hard for you, merge mine my a*s lol after BU takes over with hostile approach it will prove to the community that the changing of POW algo/mechanism/protocol are indeed necessary and with the support of the community Core will implement many changes to avoid any such attacks and then you could go and merge mine with all the other s*itcoins and have a nice sleep at night thinking you earned some profit.

^^^ holy settle down buddy.

My understanding is indeed no, merged mining does not apply. In the case of a hard fork you will need to choose a chain to mine on and to support. I cannot elaborate on the technicalities of merged mining yet, still need to learn more about it myself.

No you will not be able to merge mine one chain onto another. For merged mining to work, the merged coin needs to explicitly support being merge mined.

;)Thanks for the confirmation.

Thank ck for sharing this knowledge. This is all I wanted to know.

And to some random Sr. that carries a mixer ad avatar, umadbrah? The community is broad enough to tolerate most kinds of questions in good faith. take your rage elsewhere. I ain't gonna bite back a dog just because I got bitten by a dog. GL.
