If you compare this two miner software which one do you guys prefer and why. Wanna run this software on older desktop pc and laptop. My wife already run Minergate on newer laptop but so far I don't know the difference between this two programs.

i prefer nice hash, purely because it all get transferred into BTC automatically so you dont have to pay any trading fees. But running these programs wont make you alot of money. if you are lucky its a few dollars a week,

nicehash is better autoconversion and plenty of coin there less limited, also profit is higher because they control more hash, still it's better to mine etheruem

I'd like to mention that MinerGate is not just a service, where users can mine cryptocurrencies in order to exchange them for bitcoins. What we are focused on is driving the further adoption of cryptocurrencies by providing an easy-to-use service and software that can be used by anyone who has a computer. That's why we developed a GUI miner and implemented variable difficulty for effective CPU-mining.

That said, you can easily exchange the mined coins for a bunch of other coins (including btc), using an instant exchange https://changelly.com. You can even send an invoice to your MinerGate account: https://changelly.com/blog/introducing-invoices/

As for the hash rate, well, yes, we didn't manage to capture the entire Ethereum network on the third day after release. Please give us more time Smiley

i did use miner gate for a while and i was highly impressed with both the design and the smoothness. the flaw i found was the long wait times to transfer coins to the exchanges. usually due to the block chain of that coin being slow.

i only use nicehash because it easy to use and it will be converted right away to btc unlike minergate you need to set up by yourself, and the earnings from nicehash is completely acceptable.

Yes it is! It´s a little bit higher than mining in a normal pool

Just to be clear, at Nicehash you don't mine coins you mine contracts and are paid directly in BTC for your
hash. There is no coin exchange, orphans or luck involved. On the other hand there is no opportunity to
receive any other currency except BTC.

Conversely if you're buying hash you pay in BTC regardless of the coin you want to mine with that hash.

yes u'r right..

Thanks for that clarification Joblo!  I have been using MinerGate on my 2-3 PCs for about 2 weeks now and really like it because of the ease of use. I'm having trouble getting it to recognize my old NVidia GeForce GTX 550 Ti, which i will need to get resolved before investing in a GPU mining rig, but I have a note in to their support so...
 if
My main plans are to mine for XMR and Ether... probably holding the majority of what I mine (esp for XMR) so if I understand you right, Nicehash would really no be a good option for me to try since it automatically converts/pays out it BTC, correct?

That is correct, if you want to keep XMR you need to mine in an XMR pool with an XMR payout address.

for me, both software was work good in the past while i am mining. but i use both in the vps wit minimum spec, so i don't know how average per day. but when i am trying to mining in my pc, in nicehash, i only mining with lyre, i don't know why, maybe i only use cpu mining spec, in minergate, i only got hashrate in 21 h/s, yes its low i know, but i only on trial so i don't think the result will be good.

i think the result of hashrate will be different if i install vga cards, with only low budget vga cards, it coud make the hashrate increase to. so, my advice, when you want to run with both software, trying to use low budget vga cards, and don't use your pc or laptop, because it could be hot and its not good.

Quite similar to Mining Rig Rentals, there you set your miner and other person can buy your hash power. The time that your miner is free (not rented) you are mining in the pool that you want

Any updates on this topic?

as regards the forum, it seems like NiceHash has some continuity

NiceHash Miner

on the other side, MinerGate support is missing in action with many complaints unanswered

Minergate has a nice GUI, that helps newbies in their first days at mining.
But it's less profitable, less transparent than nice hash.
This send is an authority in the alt-coin mining field.

Nicehash.

Minergate just has that tacky feel to me.. and I don't like their whole 'on-page miner' or their mining client - they feel like they were designed for people with 0 knowledge regarding mining. Sure, they have good manual options and an excellent exchange system, super easy to navigate etc.. but, shit, if they're trying to go for the 'family friendly miner' angle then I feel like eventually they will sacrifice performance for ease of use.

Just my 2c.

Both are very good options, in the overall scale of things.
