Maxcoin Launch Delayed And Pandemonium Ensues

Cloud Mining Will Work For Maxcoin

There’s no question people are very interested in Maxcoin. The new altcoin was set to launch yesterday at 2:30pm but a rush of traffic to ended that idea. Their server gave off 502 errors as hungry miners looking to cash in on what could be the next big altcoin rushed to find information in the Announcement thread that the project developers planned to post there. The 502 errors caused a delay for at least one hour past launch time, angering some who had skipped work or stayed up late for the launch.

One of the big selling points of Maxcoin was that this altcoin would favor CPU mining over GPU. However, that benefit seems to have been crushed already as multiple users on Bitcointalk have already cracked the code for the SHA-3 hashing with cudaMiner and have their mining rigs ready to roll.

The developers stated that it was their hope that it would take some time to get GPU miners to work. This idea would help level the playing field since CPU miners generally struggle to get even a small amount of altcoin during most launches. Last night Maxcoin Project released this official statement about the delay at Reddit.
