Frequently asked questions

Here is a list of popular questions we received in the past few days that might be interesting to you.

Do you plan to add a secure connection?


Do you plan to add more locations?


Do you plan to add more coins?

Yes, but we are starting slowly and this might not be as soon as you expect.

Why is balance not increasing for so long?

Since this is still a small pool that doesn’t have a very high hashrate, we are not finding blocks as frequently as in other pools. Your reward gets detected and assigned to your account as soon as there is a new block found in which you participated mining. You can find the frequency of blocks here.

Will fees stay at 2%?

Fees are currently set at 2% and can change in the future based on how successful we will be with the pool.

Do you plan to add alternative payout methods?

Currently, no, but we are not opposed to the idea.

Are the payout fees covered by the pool?

Currently, yes.
