Zel is a community-driven and supported Proof-of-Work (PoW) cryptocurrency with fair distribution, powering the development of a robust and functional infrastructure. Community members earn Zel by mining and/or operating ZelNodes to support the network.
ZelHash, EquihashR 125_4
Zel uses its own, custom PoW hashing algorithm, ZelHash, a modified version of previous Equihash algorithms from ZCash(200,9) and ZHash (144,5). The unique algorithm is ASIC-resistant and shows the team’s proactive commitment to decentralization by supporting GPU mining.
