As has already been posted on Reddit, we are looking to start a new, dedicated development fund in order to compensate the specialised development required for the GPU miner. This will allow us to move forward with the fork at breakneck speed. In terms of development status, the GPU miner is the last piece of the puzzle, with wallet integration having been completed.
Please donate what you can to this address: VpBsRnN749jYHE9hT8dZreznHfmFMdE1yG
