Open To Anyone

Myriad is multi-algo - the first coin to implement 5 simultaneous hash functions. Unlike Bitcoin, which can only be profitably mined using SHA256d ASICs, Myriad is open to SHA256d ASICS, Scrypt ASICS, GPUs & CPUs.


A miner can choose to mine using any of the 5 algorithms — SHA256d, Scrypt, Myr-Groestl, Skein, or Yescrypt — each has a target block time of 5 minutes. Overall, a block is found approximately every 1 minute. Each algorithm's difficulty is only affected by its own hash rate. While ASICs have rendered GPU mining on SHA256d & Scrypt unproductive, the remaining algorithms continue to be dominated by GPU mining. The multi-algo approach offers exceptional 51% resistance because a range of different hardware is needed to find 51% of the blocks.

Merge mining has been enabled on SHA256d & Scrypt, allowing Myriad to benefit from the massive hash power available.

Fair Distribution

No premine or hidden fortunes possessed by insiders. Everyone has an equal opportunity to obtain Myriad at the market rate.
