Triggers are smart automated actions that you can set up through the minerstat dashboard. In case of a selected event happening, a desired command will be fired. Triggers are a really customized way to solve different issues. Some are checked every minute, while others depend on the historical charts and not all triggers have all possible actions available.

In this post, we have collected 8 triggers that anyone can find useful as they save you from unpredictable and sometimes unsolvable events.

1. Share count trigger

Share count trigger will get fired if the number of shares is the same for the selected period. While…


1. You can mine Bitcoin

Everyone that starts mining would first like to start mining Bitcoin. Unless you have an ASIC miner (where one profitable machine can cost several thousands of dollars and is usually really hard to get), you won’t be able to mine Bitcoin.

However, there are services that auto-exchange your mining earnings to Bitcoin or services that pay you for mining in Bitcoin, but in reality, you don’t mine Bitcoin - you just earn it.

2. You can mine with any device

With mining earnings increasing, so does increase mining popularity. But you need to keep in mind that you cannot effectively mine with just any device. For mining…


Through the years working with farms and small miners we have seen that unexpected things just happen. A sudden flood, too high temperatures, unplanned maintenance, electricity outage, and even earthquakes or fires. We were always ready to extend the account duration for those that were facing unexpected outages or compensate it with a coupon code, but this was always done manually and upon a request.

Since we have recently introduced the minerstat Credits program, we have seen this as a great opportunity to add an additional new service to our program, which will help large and small miners better get…


One of the more challenging tasks with flashing is flashing a mining OS image to an SSD. Everything is good if you have the right cable and you are flashing for only one rig. But if you don’t have the right cable at hand and you have dozens of rigs to flash, SSD Flasher is a tool that will help you out.

The main idea behind SSD Flasher is to have a tool that can help you quickly flash any msOS image without the need to disassemble the rig. The rig can run on SSD (preferable), HDD, or USB drive…


Ethereum is the most popular cryptocurrency for GPU mining. Introduced in 2014, it has slowly grown and became the #1 coin for mining with AMD and Nvidia GPUs. If you don’t know what to mine and you decided to go with ETH, you made a good and safe decision at the current state of the market.

Ethereum network hashrate

Since we only monitor the data for the last month, you can check Etherscan network hashrate explorer and see how Ethereum hashrate grew from 6 TH/s in January 2017 to 160 TH/s in January 2018 and 300 TH/s in July 2018. …


Minerstat Credits (msc) is an innovative cashback reward system powered by the pools and services that agreed to give back to the mining community.

All minerstat users can participate and start collecting msc by simply pointing their workers to Ezil.me pool and then use collected msc towards a discount for the minerstat subscription. If you are already mining on Ezil.me pool then you don’t have to do anything else as you are already collecting the credits.

We are looking forward to extending the program and adding more functionalities, pools, and services.

How does it work?

When you open the Credits page the msc credits…


We are introducing a new tool for faster (re)flashing of your mining rigs and switching to a specific msOS version. For optimal performance, we suggest using an SSD and having at least 8 GB RAM. This tool can be only used through the console. If you use SSD via SATA the process should not take more than a few minutes. For slower systems, it can take much longer.

Note: If the process of flashing fails, the drive will need to be reflashed the regular way (with Etcher on a separate computer).

Updating msOS version

If you are already running a certain msOS version…


You and your team can improve your mining operation with better organization. To not miss a single task anymore, we have added a new feature to the dashboard: tasks.

Tasks structure

Each task can take the following structure:

  • Task title: Task title is what your team members will notice the first, so keep it informative but not too long.
  • Task description: You can write custom text to the task description which will help the team members solve the task faster.
  • Task comments: Each member of the team can comment on the task to keep the communication on the task going.
  • Due to…


We have recently introduced a new tool - crypto mining ROI calculator - that will help you to better calculate the ROI and break-even times of your recent or old crypto-mining investments.

General information

Under general information, you can enter your mining setup name, electricity costs, currency, and coin for which you will calculate your results.


With our mining calculator popularity growing we are always looking for new ways to add more relevant data that could be useful to our customers and visitors of the website. One of the biggest changes we made recently is adding pools’ estimated rewards alongside coins’ estimated rewards. We did have some pools available before, such as Zergpool, zpool, Prohashing, and Mining Pool Hub, but they are reporting their estimated rewards in one unified currency (BTC) and rewards are provided for algorithms. This update introduced PPS and PPLNS pools for different coins as well.

The changes were on different parts of…
