A good minor crypto-currency knows which mining pool to choose to be as effective as possible and not lose money because of it. We will present you the list of large mining pools and above all a method to fully understand how to choose your pool.
How to choose a mining pool for the crypto-currency that I wish to undermine:
- The Hashrate pool: this one must be large enough and be roughly divided by 3 compared to the global network which means the total hashrate of all the pools combined.
- The number of blocks found per hour: If your pool does not find or few blocks per hour, it is not a good pool.
- A weak payout: if our power is not huge in order to have frequent transfers.
- Minimal transaction fees.
Example below, we wish to undermine the BTCZ (Equihash algorithm) We will look for a pool including all the points mentioned above. Our choice for this example is Suprnova.cc, let’s analyze This choice below: We can therefore observe a hashrate divided by about 2.4, the pool holds 42% of the global hashrate and it is perfect for our criteria. Attention: We strongly advise against choosing a pool that has a hashrate greater than 50%, an attack of 51% would be possible and this is not beneficial for anyone. A pool with 20% of the global hashrate is sufficient. More information here: Wikipedia Satistics/blocks regarding the number of blocks found per hour, this one is 11 blocks per hour and 239 blocks on the last 24 hours which is largely sufficient. My account/Edit account for the payout, which means the minimum required amount of coins available before the pool makes you the “transfer” on your Exchange platform (or local wallet) is 0.1 BTCZ which is really insignificant and it’s perfect for us. Each mining pool is different, you won’t have the information in the same place every time and so you have to look everywhere and we suggest to look at the help page as well as “How to Start” (Getting started). In this case here on Suprnova.cc the fee is displayed directly on the main page.
Setting up the Mining software
This will depend on the software used, either with AMD or Nvidia graphics cards. On the other hand this is always in the same way, regardless of the software. In the folder of your mining software there are files necessary to the proper functioning of it, we will have to create a file to allow the launch of the executable file “. exe” by making a file which carries the extension “. bat” Creating a File with the “. bat” extension can be done with a note block. Its configuration, i.e. the information that must be indicated on the inside depends on the mining pool but always comes in the same form: Note: However on a different software the prefixes (-A-O-U-P etc can be different) example with the “Ccminer” Mining software
- Software name + “. exe” in order to tell the software to launch.
- -A means the algorithm that we will use
- -O means the server address of the mining pool in SSL (secure) or not.
- Following the address of the server of the mining pool is indicated the port provided by the pool.
- -U means portfolio address (wallet), it is indicated either its local wallet or the one provided by the Exchange platform
- -p means password (password) it will be “X” all the time except special case.
- -I means “intensity”, we can indicate the intensity we want to benefit from the best hashrate possible by being stable, it will depend on your graphics cards.
Once you have entered the information in your note block, you simply have to “save as”, to indicate the name you wish and to remember to indicate “. bat” at the end of it. Anyway, never forget to look at the help page on the mining pool (or Getting started) to find out what information you need to indicate in your “. bat” file.
List of mining pools
Here is a list of pools to help you find the best mining pool according to the crypto-currency you want to undermine, remember to look at the criteria displayed at the beginning of the article that changes very quickly: Suprnova very good mining pool Grouping a lot of cryptos-currencies, on the main page you will see the list of available crypts as well as the pool hashrate and network hashrate, easy and fast to know if this pool is interesting for the crypto you want to undermine. Nanopool very good mining pool for the Ethereum, the Ethereum Classic, the Electroneum and also the Monéro with a correct payout. Zcash Flypool very good mining pool to undermine Zcash (Equihash algorithm) Dwarfpool mining pool used to undermine Ethereum (algorithm Ethash/Dagger-Hashimoto) but watch out for high payout and this is not the most interesting. This mining pool is also used to undermine the expanse, the same algorithm as the Ethereum. Formerly a very good pool, today much less, example: here is a concrete example above concerning the criteria that must be looked at each time, if you undermine the Zcash on the pool of Dwarfpool, you will simply undermine in the void then Be sure to check each criterion indicated at the beginning of the article. MiningPoolHub MiningPoolHub is interesting for undermining Zcoin (XZC Algorithme Lyra2Z), Zclassic (Equihash) and others. This mining pool has the peculiarity of proposing a system of auto switch (switching to another crypto-currency) according to profitability. AikaPool mining pool used to undermine TrezarCoin (Neoscrypt algorithm) Minerpool Pirl mining pool used to undermine Pirl (algorithm Ethash/Dagger Hashimoto). BSOD mining Pool used to undermine crypt-currencies under the Algortihme Nesocrypt such as CRC (CrowdCoin), Infine (Lyra2Z algorithm), Bulwark (algorithm NIST5), Dixicoin (algorithm C11) and many others. Mining Pool used to undermine Sigil (Neoscrypt algorithm) mainly. MinerProject mining Pool used to undermine NanuCoin (Xevan algorithm) mainly. ArcPool mining Pool used to undermine the Tune (Nesocrypt algorithm) mainly. Umine mining Pool used to undermine Solaris (Xevan algorithm) mainly. DataPaw mining Pool use to undermine Straks (Lyra2v2 algorithm). Ellaism mining Pool used for miner Ellaism (Ethash/Dagger-Hashimoto algorithm). MinerPool Ubiq mining Pool to undermine Ubiq (Ethash/Dagger-Hashimoto algorithm). MinerPool Music Pool Mining for miner of MusiCoin (algorithm Ethash/Dagger-Hashimoto). The list is long, you already have the main pools used for crypts-important currencies. This list will be updated over time and additions will eventually be possible. If you have any questions, if you think it is missing something important to add or correct do not hesitate to write a comment.
