I've created a new mining pool that pays in bitcoins, but actually mines the most profitable scrypt currencies. It's quite a bit more profitable than mining bitcoins, on a GPU.
If you're concerned with supporting bitcoins instead of altcoins, you're doing that by mining here, since it continuously exchanges altcoins for bitcoins, lowering the value of altcoins, and increasing the value of bitcoins.
What it does:
- Switches to the most profitable coin to mine, like multipool.in, but with several more coins. The switching code is accurate and fast. At the moment, it's monitoring 12 coins, with several more suspended.
- Automatically exchanges coins for bitcoins, and pays miners entirely in bitcoins.
- Predicts the value of the next block, for coins with variable block rewards.
There is no registration. Simply connect your scrypt miner to middlecoin.com:3333 with your bitcoin address as your username, and any password. Payouts are automatic, and occur once a day, if your balance is greater than 10 mBTC.
