Hello,

Have read a fair bit and I know this is STRICTLY a BTC mining pool forum but as that's all I want anyway (even with L3+'s) I was hoping you guys could point me in the right direction.

I had planned just to hook them up to nicehash - let them do there thing. Now it's down it's pretty worrying and has made me think I should hedge my bets by mining a few pools

Anything I can look into further?

Thanks

Yours Forever

Nicehash has been nothing but nice over the past few months. They've been down and out of service for hours and days at a time and very frequently, almost once every few days. I think they're done. Put a fork in it.

Sure, use AntPool if you want to lose out on a ton of coin.  AntPool does NOT give its miners transaction fees.  Those go right into Bitmain's pockets.  Take a look at the average transaction fees per block.  As a miner, those are YOURS.  It's the entire reason for charging fees - to incentivize miners.  Yet, Bitmain keeps your coin.

Do yourself a favor.  Mine somewhere else.  Lots of other (and quite frankly better run) pool options out there.

Jonny's Pool - Mine with us and help us grow!  Support a pool that supports Bitcoin, not a hardware manufacturer's pockets!  No SPV cheats.  No empty blocks.

I'm not keen on antpool as I've read some pretty salty stuff about them on here, such as them making a million a month and like with heavy fees, also although just a tiny fish I don't like all this mass centralisation with antpool and I'm not at all sure I wan't the return on my investment interrupted by a communist regieme - unlikely, not impossible.

Read that Nicehash may have been hacked for $60million! Anyone know more about that?

One of the biggest motivating factor in choosing a pool will be getting coin out and onto a ledger once a day. I hate to say it - but meh, what odds if I do, not going to effect anything. But the 2 biggest threats to bitcoin are 'tether' and bitfinex going under and antpool or another pool being hacked/slapped with regulation. ,

I would like to insulate myself - to a degree - from massive variance and I don't really want to get too swept up in the 'Ant' mega corp (although no idea why NEO is so low)

I have to say though that I really don't mind which SHA256 coin I mine. Whichever pays the most. I support a football team, Not a $ £ euro or Yen. Plus BTC's transaction fees are beginning to grind my gears. So Ideally for the 2 S9's I'd like a pool that can offer all of the above, without the shit parts of the above - if you get me!?

Suggestions most appreciated


Thanks

The upside is when you do get a block (like kano just did), you get a bigger slice Smiley

As long as your monthly/qtr/yearly return is on track then no need to fret. However if you rely on the income from mining to live from, then you might want to use a bigger pool like Slush for smaller, but more regular payments.

Lol, sorry guys I went with Slush, I had originally set up with kano but a combination of Newbie ineptness and tbh, not a hugely inviting interface or help section Undecided (just saying is all!)

Slush has been in beast mode I believe this weekend. Beginning to regret the L3+'s.

Do people buy/trade miners on here with some sort of escrow? Just the thought of eBay pocketing 10% then some ass mining 2 weeks overclocked to hell and putting in a paypal refund makes me quesy. (just seen there is, soz)

There was a block this morning on Slush that was cracked in 14sec with pool luck of 41418.43%

Still a newbie - and I should of clarified in my title I have 1 S9 + 1 L3+ with an L3+ late Dec an S9 start Jan (though anything I've ordered during Chinese new year stick an extra 2 weeks on shipping min  Undecided)

Also I was wondering if you guys knew how to reduce the duty of these yokes? I'm in N.Ireland (technically the UK) and I paid $348 for 1 and $442 for the other - These taxes anger Dr Octagon.

Just put the curse on Slush 3hrs no blocks Sad

Oh and thank you very much for your help - if nothing else you guys kept me out of the clutches of the commies. Dr Octagon is not a communist.

That's why you don't pool hop.  Wait it out at either place you're at.

Well after Nicehash got done, and luckily I lost only $200 in it, I switched to Prohashing and frankly it's not as good as NH but still floating around the same rates. They have like a %5 fee I guess, which is huge imo, but after the first few days of making ~$15, it went back to ~$20-24 just like NH on a single L3+. Not bad.. better than nothing... and I gave litcoinpool as my backup pool.
The good thing about prohashing is that it decides what to mine with your hashing power and pays you out in whatever coin you choose. So after NH I couldn't change the tradition and chose btc for my payouts but that might just be dumb. I dunno... if anyone has a reccomendation on this, I'm eager to listen as well.
