Does Bitcoin ASICs work with MultiChain?

+2 votes
As I understand they should be able to, since they are both doing SHA256d, right?

What if we change the address format, does that impact it somehow?

Changing the address format should not make much difference, but it will depend on exactly what mining software you are using. In the worst case, you can just use bitcoin compatible addressing:

However please note that some of the Bitcoin Core APIs often required by external mining software are no longer available in MultiChain.

That's good to hear, I was expecting to have to change the hash algorithm to prevent that from happening.
