The merge-mining functionality allows Bitcoin miners to mine in both chains with almost no extra cost. Therefore merger-miners can collect extra revenues from RSK transaction fees. and allow them to participate in the smart contracts business.
Merge-mining is a process by which Bitcoin miners can mine both Bitcoin and RSK at the same time, with the same hardware and consuming the same electricity. RSK merge-mining uses the same cryptographic hash function as Bitcoin (SHA256).
RSK merge-mining is in the overall design as secure as Bitcoin mining, but assumes a stronger property from SHA256, which is “freestart collision security” of at least 100 bits. This is because RSK uses a property of the Merkle–Damgård construction to compress the size of the SPV proof.
