After listening to community feedback, the initial concept of the miner health proximity algorithm was updated to favour and allow the mining community to have up to ten miners in one location without impacting any mining efficiency.
In addition, the MXC Mapper on the DataDash app, with the upcoming update, will reform it to a 2.4 km long diagonal hexagonal globe, known as the “Meta-Mining Map.” The new update is the first step in moving toward the metaverse, more specifically MXC’s Metaverse, full of immersive technology experiences that anyone will be able to access through the simple DataDash environment. The backend developers are working tirelessly around the clock to roll out the first version of MXCverse 1.0 and are expected to have a Beta version by the end of this year.
The new Meta-Mining Map rollout will ensure that the new proximity criteria are live and active for everyone globally. With this unique and appealing feature, you will be able to see highlights of millions of hexagons, where every hexagon will represent a 2.4km long diagonal. Moreover, your miner location will precisely show in which hexagon you are situated. The hexagons within the hexagonal maps are divided into three colours:
- The green hexagon represents the area that is still able to grow in terms of deploying additional miners. The switch happens from green to yellow if six miners have been deployed in that 2.4km diagonal.
- The yellow hexagon suggests being cautious, as there are already several established miners in that area. The hexagon remains yellow until more than ten miners are deployed in that region.
- The red hexagons signify the hexagon is at full capacity, meaning that any additional miners placed in that radius can hinder mining performance. The 11th M2 Pro will be affected by a 20% mining performance reduction, the 12th one by 40%, and so on.
The new Meta-Mining Map will also allow you to see your area's dominance. For example, if you live in an area with many yellow or red hexagons, you might want to spread your M2 Pro miners to other, less established areas. In this manner, the robustness and scalability of the network can be secured and simultaneously able to extend a global reach while ensuring fairness across the Data Republic network.
The new algorithm behind the Meta-Mining Map will be based on the “miner fuel” of your M2 Pro. Fuel is the total mined $MXC since the initiation period of mining, and this element currently contributes up to 80% of your essential miner health. The hexagon determines the top ten miners based on fuel with the new update. The fuel is determined per miner and not per DataDash account, as a user can own multiple miners with different fuel percentages. The M2 Pro miners with the most fuel would dominate in that area.
With this new update, the whole community can participate in a decentralised and fair mining experience, with little to no impact on their mining performance and ensuring no illicit mining farm activities.
