Well, I decided to do a test, once and for all to see which auto-profit switching site was best. I hear pros and cons of each site and wanted to see based on facts, which site gave higher profits regardless of what people say. At the end of the day, it's what ends up in my BTC wallet that matters.

So for this test, I bought 3 Baikal Giant+ 5 Baikal Giant+, and each will have its own BTC address so there won't be any mixed coins.

All of the test will be auto exchanged to BTC according to their site’s system to see which one does it better.

This test will be run all at the same time simultaneously, under the same network/internet, same location, same setup/ventilation, each with its own same HP server power supply, so there isn't much variable.

nicehash.com and miningpoolhub.com has Quark, Qubit, x11, x13, x15 for its auto profit switching, but zpool.ca also has x14 and was included in my test for completeness since it supports it.

This test will be done over a 7 day period, which should be enough I believe to show the results/outcome and a winner! At the end of the 7th day (or longer duration if needed), I will post the final BTC wallet balance that it made from each site.

So… 8/19/2017 is Day 1, and the suspense begins…

The following will be running:

Baikal #1 - Nicehash
Baikal #2 - Zpool
Baikal #3 - miningpoolhub
Baikal #4 - Nicehash custom pricing profit trigger + Zpool + Nicehash as backup
Baikal #5 - Nicehash custom pricing profit trigger + miningpoolhub + Nicehash as backup


Disclaimer: I am no way involved nor affiliated with nicehash.com, miningpoolhub.com, zpool.ca. Just a curious person that wants to help out the community =)


AND THE WINNER IS......
CLEARLY ZPOOL.CA
CLEAR LOSER IS NICEHASH.COM


Un-cashable means that it did not meet minimum amount for nicehash to withdrawal, so I added the amount manually

Conclusion: Even with all the talk about zpool.ca taking 20% or what not, for me, it still comes out on top, so that just proves that zpool is more profitable for multi-algo switching as you can see the final amount received in the BTC wallet.

exciting, I don't know what's Baikal Giant+, if it can mine BTC directly, it would better to add another one to mine BTC and compare the results.

Baikal Giant+ is a multi-algorithm miner, here is their website: http://www.baikalminer.com/product06.php

It mines Quark, Qubit, x11, x13, x14, x15 algorithm.

Their main selling point is it can mine multiple algorithms and choose the highest profit at the time. That is why I am putting those 3 sites to the test, to see which auto-profiting site works best. I am assuming whichever wins, we can determine that their auto-profiting will be superior than the others, but if they are close together in profits, then they will be equally comparable with a +-5% variable I'm guessing. But if 1 pool is drastically lower profits then the others, then we can come to a conclusion to stay away from that pool. LOL

Also, to mine BTC, you would need SHA-256 algorithm miner.

Thanks for doing this experiment.  In my mind I would think nicehash because you are switching directly to the most profitable coin and getting BTC credited immediately whereas the other two you have to wait for the alt coin to mature and then you have to wait for the exchange and we know as that happens the price changes.  It may change for better or it may get worse who knows.  Of course nicehash also charges a big fat 3% too.

The competition would be around zpool and miningpoolhub and I think zpool would have the better results.
Nicehash is just attracting a lot of beginners to their pools but have larger fees.

I think if the general overall price of all alts are rising you will do better on zpool or mph, but if they are dropping you would do better on nicehash since the multipools are really just chasing the high prices.  It's just a theory and lord knows I've been wrong many times before but I'm looking forward to the results.

I have mined on all 3 of those pools with my Baikal Giant and I had the most payout with Nicehash over the same time period.

But did you mine all 3 at the exact same time simultaneously? That is the key here, because if you mined each of those 3 at different time frames even though if they are for the same duration amount, the price varies from day to day.

I was planning to do that but miningpoolhub.com doesn't have a public stats page, also, posting daily results wouldn't be efficient since each of them have their minimum threshold for BTC auto-exchange/withdrawal. So some days, it might be 0 BTC.

I think you should compare total earnings, not withdraws since each pool has different minimum withdraw threshold.  In any case, you are doing a great service to all new miners,  your effort is highly appreciated.

I am doing total earnings, which was why I stated: "At the end of the 7th day (or longer duration if needed), I will post the final BTC wallet balance that it made from each site."

Worst case, if it didn't meet the minimum withdraw threshold, then will just need to wait on Sunday because that is when they usually withdraw any remaining small balances or I'll just manually withdraw after testing period is done.

One of the power supplies got faulty so it ruined my test, since all did not have equal uptime. Waiting on a replacement before I can re-test again.

P.S. This is one of those times I wished I order extra parts as a back up...

It's hard to pinpoint when it actually failed, since I was away for the weekend and was going to finalize this test and calculate how much BTC each site gave to each of the wallets. That's when I noticed that one of them wasn't running, so the data would be irrelevant.


Also, does anybody know how to configure a Baikal miner for Nicehash? I followed this link: https://www.nicehash.com/?p=news&id=114
but it stays on mining just 1 algorithm. Any ideas?

That is how it works, it mines the most profitable algorithm at that time, it does not mine all the algorithm's at the same time.
