Mining is the process of spending computing power to process transactions, secure the network, and keep everyone in the system synchronized together. It can be perceived like the Bitcoin data center except that it has been designed to be fully decentralized with miners operating in all countries and no individual having control over the network. This process is referred to as "mining" as an analogy to gold mining because it is also a temporary mechanism used to issue new coins. Unlike gold mining, however, crypto-coin mining provides a reward in exchange for useful services required to operate a secure payment network.

You can see all of the above for your wallet address on the Connected Workers section of any coin page, clicking your worker or by using our API. When mining equipment is disconnected the worker will not appear on the page however you can search using your wallet address to pull up your stats for Hashrate, Shares, Paid and Balance etc. You don't have to be actively connected to get a payout if a block is found and your not mining at the time as long as you have provided enough shares in the round the block is found and have a miniumum balance of 0.01 to meet the payout threshold.

PROP Mode Est Round Rewards and Percentages are displayed on our Connected Workers section on each Coin Pool page and on your Miner/Worker Stats pages. They do not display any stats in SOLO mode unless the miner has shares for the current round in PROP mode before changing to SOLO mode. They let you know the estimated reward you might receive once a block is found and percentage of shares your miner/worker has versus others for the current round. This is how the estimated reward is worked out Known Block Reward / Proportion of shares from each miner. These are purely estimate stats and they update every minute in line with given mining variables on our pool such as Mining Power and Accepted Shares. Once a block is confirmed all final round shares are then added up versus the actual block reward + block transaction fee rewards and sent out to miners.

Please go to the "Getting Started" page to get started, here you will find the stratum addresses and ports. stratum+tcp://stratum.coinminerz.com is our EU mining address and us-stratum+tcp://stratum.coinminerz.com is our American one. 33XX ports are for most types of mining equipment and 35XX ports are for NiceHash or Mining Rig Rentals or another cloud hashing provider. 33XX ports are all low to high difficulty and will find the best difficulty for your equipment. 35XX ports are all fixed high difficulty especially for NiceHash, MRR and other hashing providers etc. You can also find connection details on each coin pool page. There is also the ability to set custom mining difficulties using the password field.

This will only happen when you have a misconfigured hardware/software where your miner sends lots of problematic shares or lots of authentication attempts that are rejected due to incorrect wallet address or misformatted workername. Double check your mining software is running the latest compatible version, the configuration such as address/mining username/workername etc is correct & firmware for mining hardware is up to date. If you still have issues please reboot your router and miner. This can also happen if we have to restart our stratum servers as it means work returned won't be recognised, if this is the case your worker will be allowed to reconnect sometime between 300-600 seconds after being banned. If issues still persist please get in touch with us here via discord and let us know your mining username and IP address along with coin your mining and which stratum.

Every now and again a block can get rejected or orphaned as it's not a valid solution for the blockchain or network at all. This is because the answer isn't even acceptable for example an orphan block is an acceptable solution in terms of the answer but it is only made an orphan as it doesn't fit the chain and get's pushed out (or another miner/pool found it a couple of miliseconds before we did). A rejected block doesnt even make it to the network to see if it is valid as the coin node (pool wallet) will deny it straight away. This can be due to mining equipment giving wrong block solutions back to the pool. Rejected blocks and orphan blocks do not give any coins and therefore there will be no payouts, however all accepted shares are still kept until the next correct block is found so nothing is lost.

Connect to our Discord Server and then go to the bot-commands area, once your in here you can use the following commands to get information via Discord from the CoinMinerz API:

!showstats - This will give an overview of the CoinMinerz pool stats

!showstats REPLACEWITHPOOLNAME - This will give you stats for the pool name typed

!worker REPLACEWITHWALLETADDRESS - This will give you stats for your mining wallet

Our Pool Bot also posts blocks found and payments made to these sections of Discord: #blocks-found and #payments-made

Coins generated by a block will not be available to you right away. They will take some time to be confirmed by the entire coin network before they are paid out by the pool. Usually coins have a confirmation set to 120 although this can vary from coin to coin. What that actually means: the network (not the pool) has to discover 120 additional blocks on top of the one found by the pool to confirm it and make a payment (if the minimum threshold of 0.01 has been met). Please note that some coins have much higher confirmation limits in place and this is why you can see blocks in a pending state for a while before they go to confirmed. If you want to check the confirmations on pending blocks you can do so using on each of our coin pool pages or using our API here: https://coinminerz.com/api/payments You can also see the past so many pool payments for each coin on each of our coin pool pages simply click the Transaction ID's and you can see when, how much and to who the pool has paid for each coin pool.

Our payment system run's every 30 minutes for each coin but that doesn't mean we pay out every 30 minutes if no blocks have been found or if blocks have been found but havent been confirmed by the network or if your balance is below 0.01 which is the automatic payout threshold.

You can buy hash power and start mining any coin you like using NiceHash, by following these steps.

1. Register a new account on NiceHash

2. Deposit some supported cryptocurrency (BTC, ETH, XRP, BCH, LTC or ZEC) to your NiceHash wallet addresses. Please account for the transaction fees when depositing. In order to submit an order, you will need to exchange deposited altcoins to BTC.

3. Find a coin you would like to mine from our Getting Started page and ensure you use the 35XX port designed for NiceHash, if you are unsure please get in touch via our Discord Server

4. Save the pool to your list of pools HERE. The algorithm, Stratum, Port, Username (your receiving wallet address for coin being mined plus your workername for eg: NdPeNEN4FSGsYGsT7z5KsDyqnK6QYoyuRj.Worker1x1), Password (x for PROP Mode and m=solo for SOLO Mode).

5. Verify the pool config just added with the pool verificator.

6. Worker = ReplaceWithYourWalletAddressForCoinBeingMined.ReplaceWithYourWorkerId1x1

7. Workers password: x (for PROP mining) and m=solo (for SOLO mining)

8. Place a new order on the hash power marketplace (don't forget to select the right algorithm for mining the picked coin, e.g. SHA256 for mining Bitcoin, BitcoinCash, Deutsche eMark, Digibyte or Peercoin etc). You will be able to select between the EU-WEST, EU-NORTH, USA-WEST and USA-EAST hash power marketplace (each of them has its own prices) and standard or fixed order. When you determine the amount you are willing to spend on the order, this amount is expressed and paid in bitcoins. You pay as you mine, so the unspent bitcoins can stay in your NiceHash wallet or you can withdraw them.

9. Check your Stats on our Pool either under the Connected Workers section or by searching your wallet address for the coin you are mining using the Wallet Lookup tool on the home page. Please note that we are responsible for your mining rewards when blocks are found on our pool not Nicehash (also please don't use your Nicehash deposit addresses to mine please get a fresh receiving address from a wallet for the coin you are mining). NiceHash only guarantees you to deliver hashing power that you purchased with them. If you have any issues please get in touch or ideally before you go ahead so we can confirm everything is set okay for you.

10. Start Mining and good luck! :)

You can buy hash power and start mining any coin you like usingMining Rig Rentals, by following these steps.

Once a miner submits a potential block solution it is first checked against the wallet to see if it is valid, if it isn't it is declined and kicked so it doesnt show in the stats and no payments will occur for that block as it is invalid and therefore doesnt give out any coins we can pay with. If it is valid it can take a couple of minutes to show in the stats. Almost all stats on our pool auto update however you can refresh your web browser to see if it is showing . You should see it go into pending where it will then eventually change to confirmed and an automatic payment will be made to miners that helped find it if it is accepted by the network or if it is orphaned it is pushed out by the network and again no blocks are awarded and therefore no coins to payout. However all round shares are then automatically moved over to the current round so no mining work is lost and will count towards the next valid block found.

We recommend that you create new wallet receiving addresses for each of the coins you mine with us that you can then use as your mining username/s, this way you can differentiate where payments into your wallet come from and label them. You can check using the payments section on each coin pool page, the Payments page as well as the Payments API for more information. Shares, paid and pending balance can be found on each of the coin pool page's by clicking your worker address or by searching for it using the lookup tool on the homepage. We have put links up on the Getting Started page as well as each coin pool page for blockchain explorers but please feel free to use any you wish to look up blocks and transactions etc.

The Luck stats are there purely for guestimation purposes and are not 100% accurate. The algorithm essentially compares yours/the pools hashrate against the global hashrates for the coin being mined and also takes into account block confirmations and difficulty etc to give an estimated output in days/hours/minutes/seconds as to the likelyhood of finding blocks. If you see 0s this normally means no one is mining on that coin on our pool or if we have a very busy pool we should get blocks very regularly. So the lower the number the better chances of mining a block or more. You can check this on the stats page, each coin page and at the bottom or on your workers stats page when clicking or searching for your address. This figure can go up and down based on how many miners are on the pool or the coin network.

For most of our ASIC pools CPU and GPU mining is not recommended unless it is a CPU or GPU only coin you are wanting to mine, this is becuase it is inefficent to mine with non ASIC hardware in most cases. That being said if you want to play the lottery or just give it a go please head on over to our Getting Started page for Mining Software Download Links along with connection details and instructions. We have precompiled links to the best miners for all of our pools and have even created a CPU/GPU Mining Multipack all ready to go for all of our coins for Linux and Windows (Nvidia and AMD GPU's) and CPU's as well. Any issues please get in touch.

Download this Stratum Proxy for Windows or compile from Source for Linux HERE then configure the proxy to point at one of our pools for example dogecoin: "mining_proxy.exe -o stratum.coinminerz.com -p 3363 -sh 0.0.0.0 -sp 3363" (if you get any firewall prompts allow them through for all networks), then work out your computers LAN IP address where the proxy is running for example 192.168.1.4, then go to your Getwork style miner and point the pool address and port to your computer for example: 192.168.1.4:8334 (set your username and password as you would normally) and start mining. What should then happen is your miner will connect to the proxy on your computer which in turn will translate any old getwork commands into stratum commands our pool will understand and then will start mining. You will see jobs and activity in the stratum proxy command window and also on your miner as well as our pool stats system. Any issues at all please let us know. Hope this helps anyone with old miners that show pool as dead or do not connect due to no stratum support and just getwork.

You can see this on each Coin Pool page in the Pending & Confirmed Blocks sections or via our API Blocks Page and look for the coin and block. If using the API towards the end of the row in the 4th section you will see the block finders wallet address.

An Immature balance is your share of the reward for blocks found that are in a pending state of confirmation before being paid. This gives you a rough estimation of what you will be paid once blocks start to get confirmed. The Pending Balance is your confirmed balance that is below the auto payout threshold of 0.01 (for the majority of coins, if it is different it will say on the coin pool page under auto payout amount) or your Custom Payout level set.

We don't like to hold your coins and want to get your mining rewards to you asap. This minimizes risk to you and ourselves and get's whats yours to you quickly! It also doesn't make us an attractive target to rob. Plus it helps keep ours and your transactions down keeping the wallets happy.

Without going into too much detail for security we use SSD Intel Enterprise grade servers purely running Linux with no Windows involved at all with 1GB unlimited internet connections with backup power, multiple failover internet access and DOS protection for our pool front end and all stratum functions.

Please go to our API page and you can click links to see the information you require. You can also use each of our coin pool pages to check payments, pending confirmations and much more etc. We also have a payments page and links to block explorers.

Finding blocks is not an easy task since it can take a really long time with some coins dependant on network hashrate versus the pool, finding a block is broken down into shares. Depending on which port your using each share can be a certain difficulty. The more difficult each share is to find by miners, the fewer total shares are required to eventually find a block. On the pool side, each share is checked against the coin daemon (a pool side wallet with more features) if it is indeed a valid block solution. Every share computed has the potential to be a block solution. Keep in mind shares are not blocks. Shares are part of a block and will count towards the block payout. At times, you will see shares being rejected by the pool. This can happen if you try to send an outdated share right after a block was found. Stratum, a protocol used by a miner to request work from the pool is used for share submissions and getting new work. It is very solid when it comes to avoiding rejects but they can still happen once in a while. If you are seeing rejects all the time, then something is not working right on your end. You may also notice that your hashrate on the pool website is not increasing while your invalid share count keeps climbing up. In that case turn off your miner, check your settings and turn back on. Also note that you can also get a lot of rejected shares if you are overclocking your mining voltage or frequency too high or the devices are too hot to function reliably.

Many miners have inquired about what VARDIFF means. VARDIFF stands for Variable Difficulty. Simply put the pool monitors the power of your mining rig and adjusts the difficulty of work sent to it to optimize the work carried out. This reduces the amount of times your miner needs to get new work from the server reducing load and reducing the time it takes to get more work. This is also good for the pool as it reduces the amount of requests being sent to the pool, this allows the pool to scale as and when needed.

The pending balance is only shown say for example if a block is found and you do not have a large enough balance of the coin being mined to reach the minimum payment amount of 0.01 The Immature balance shows an estimate of your expected balance that has been found in mined blocks awaiting confirmation by the coin network. The paid balance shows everything the pool has paid to the address in question to date (historically).

(100% Mined Block + Block Rewards - 1% Pool Reward = 99% / Miners Shares = Worker Payouts - Coin Network Transaction Free) A block is mined, 1% of the block is then kept by the pool, miners shares for that round are held against the block until it is confirmed, if block is confirmed all shares are then totalled for all miners and the remaining 99% of the block is then split based on miners shares, this is done as a sendmany payment and then the coin network transaction fee is deducted from the total going out. Payments run every 30 minutes and will process any confirmed blocks.

(100% Mined Block + Block Rewards - 1% Pool Reward = 99% = Solo Worker Payout - Coin Network Transaction Free) A block is mined, 1% of the block is then kept by the pool, solo miner that found it for that round is marked as finder and 99% is allocated to them whilst we await full confirmation by the network, once block is confirmed a payment is sent to the solo miner and then the coin network transaction fee is deducted from the total going out. Payments run every 30 minutes and will process any confirmed blocks.

We only pay miners once a block has been found and confirmed by the coin network and the miner has accumulated enough shares to hit the 0.01 automatic threshold. We do not pay miners for their time mining if a block has not been found. All shares add up so once a block is found your payout will be based on this. If under the threshold it will show as your pending balance and will require doing more mining to increase shares and in turn the balance to hit the payout amount of 0.01

If you contact us via Discord and no payment's have gone out to an invalid address we can alter your mining address round shares are stored against in our database if you can prove your the owner so you get the rewards. If payments have gone out sadly they cannot be reversed. It is your responsibility to ensure you have configured your miner correctly.

Yes, it is completely normal. The mining pool monitors the work you are sending to us and if it feels you are sending work too fast or too slow it will Retarget your difficulty to best serve your miner at that time. This process is continual.

No! Every single share submitted is recorded on our system. When a block is found and the system pays out for that block, the more shares you have the more of a reward you will get.

The majority of stats and graphs only show on our site for active mining sessions or anything within the past 12 hours. However we do display shares and balances regardless. Our site is best viewed using Firefox or Chrome, other browsers will also work fine although there are known issues with Edge and sometimes Internet Explorer. We have however made efforts to code the site to work across many browsers. Sometimes if pages are loaded and not the active viewing pane they will not show so you will need to refresh the page whilst actively viewing it and not on another tab etc.

We recommend using the latest Bitmain S19 Pro for SHA256, Bitmain L3++'s for Scrypt and Bitmain D3's for X11 due to their high performance and increased power efficiency, however you can mine with USB block erupters and our pool will accept any other mining equipment you have as long as it is compatible with the algorithm of the coin being mined and has enough power to generate valid shares.

Make sure your wallet address your using to mine is correct and there are no spaces before the address (committed payments cannot be undone/reversed), also ensure that your wallet is up to date and completely synced with the network as if it is out of date/sync the inbound payment will not show up until it is fully synced. Whilst you are waiting for your wallet to sync you can check out your balance using a block explorer for the coin you have been mining. We provide links to block explorers on our getting started and coin pool pages, once loaded simply search your receiving address you used to mine and you will see your current balance and transaction history.

The pool can show as dead for a few reasons normally it's because the stratum address/port is incorrectly configured, the miner username.workername is invalid (wallet address has to be for the coin you are mining and your workername must not contain any special characters and only use a to Z and 0 to 9) or your IP has been temporarily banned by our servers, there can be internet or ISP routing/blocking issues preventing communication between your miner/s and our pools or sometimes the miner just needs rebooting or your internet router as well. If you are using an old Getwork style miner that doesn't support Stratum protocol you can use a Stratum Proxy on your computer to convert getwork jobs to stratum allowing your miner to connect. (Please see "How can I mine with my old Getwork Miners that don't support Stratum Protocol"). In very rare instances we might have unexpected downtime or emergency maintenance, planned maintenance will always be announced. Any issues please let us know and we can assist.

Remember you are mining with every other miner around the world so you have to compare your hashrate against the hashpower of the pool and then the whole coin network/other big pools. A pool with a lot of hashpower compared to the rest of the pools will stand a higher chance of finding more blocks. Just remember that a pool with over 51% of the network total hashpower is not a good place to be as it destabalizes the network and allows a pool to own it unfairly. Mining is also luck based so it is always possible to find a block with lower power the chances are just slimmer and may take longer to find as opposed to using more higher power equipment.

First of all make sure that your wallet has been encrypted with a pass phrase that only you know and that the password is kept somewhere safe ideally split into different sections or purely memorised in your head, then for an additional layer of security encrypt your wallet.dat file using cryptographic compression software and finally store this file on an encrypted USB drive and then in a decent safe. Most importantly use a different password at each stage and use dice based passwords to make it harder to decrypt. Then don't keep these passwords written down in one place otherwise it will defeat the whole purpose if they are found, work passwords into paragraphs, use stenography, hide them in picture files but seperated and never whole. Or have then written down ciphered and seperated and stored in different locations. Also make sure you do every stage of encryption completely disconnected from the internet. All depends how far you want to go there are so many other ways :) Don't tell people how many coins you have or what kind as you can become a target. Ideally use a cold storage wallet to make sure it isn't connected to the internet to lessen the attack surface for someone trying to get your coins.

If you are using a full node wallet the best way to sync it up is to find the bootstrap.dat file which can be placed in the same folder as your wallet.dat file for the coin being mined. This essentially is a partial part of the blockchain of the wallet being used and saves having to download everything from scratch and will give you a head start syncing up with the network. A great place to find these are here at CryptoChainer.com Please also note that you can get mobile and leightweight wallets that don't need to sync as they work a slightly different way. If you can it's always best to try and get a cold storage wallet. A cold storage wallet is normally a device similar to a USB drive however it isnt connected to the internet so there is less chance of your coins being stolen or accessed by someone else.

Should you need to you can trade any coins you have mined using online crypto exchange sites. These will allow you to buy and sell coins, tokens or fiat currency. Our general rule of thumb is HODL!!

The best thing to do is either invest in newer mining equipment and or scale your mining operations or rent mining power from a cloud hashing provider.

Yes you can, to use worker names simply add a dot and a name directly after your wallet address you use as your username. For example Ez9W6kynbv4FqftQY537bHEXGCDs8vppdC.Worker1 Please make sure you don't use any special characters in the workername other than lowercase/uppercase letters and numbers otherwise you will not authenticate and won't generate shares to get a payout.

Yes we are constantly reviewing all of the mainstream and altcoins that are available and will be adding new coins as we go forward.

Every time a new block is found your previous round shares for that coin are assoicated with that block until it is confirmed. In turn this resets your share total to reflect how many shares you have in the current round against the next block found. If it is made invalid or orphaned your round shares are moved over to the current round so no shares are lost.

From smallest to largest: H - Hash, KH - Kilohash, MH - Megahash, GH - Gigahash, TH - Terrahash, PH - Petahash, EH - Exahash

CPU and GPU mining for the majority of the coins we host isn't as efficient as a more powerful ASIC "Application Specific Intergrated Circuit" miner purely to mine one algorithm. You can still mine with your CPU or GPU you will just get less shares and may have to wait longer for them to accumulate to hit the 0.01 minimum balance for a payout.

Yes we do, we offer Solo mining on all of our pools. To solo mine just use m=solo as your password instead of x or anything that normally puts you onto PROP mode. You will receive 99% of the block rewards and we retain 1% and it is shared with no one else. You find it you get it! Please note when mining in SOLO mode you won't see any valid/invalid shares building for your worker, this is because it doesn't matter about how many shares in SOLO mode it's all about if you find a block or not. So please don't worry if you don't see your SOLO share totals changing from 0 as SOLO mining is working :) If you want to be sure your miner is hashing okay just check your miner software or interface. Any concerns please get in touch and we will be happy to help!

Please allow a couple of minutes after your miner has started mining to see it appear on the workers page, then try a page refresh. If it still doesn't appear check your mining address, pool address, port and make sure it is mining on our pool and not a secondary or tertiary. Also double check your wallet address you are using as your username. Password has to be x for PROP mining or m=solo for SOLO mining, you can also set difficulty and custom payouts (please see Getting Started page for instructions).

No we do not and don't ever intend to add CPU/GPU based browser mining. When seaching for CoinMinerz.com online you can find a lot of old negative reviews on the domain. Rest assured this happened when it was under different ownership before we brought the domain to use for a mining pool. Since we have had ownership of the domain we have not and will not employ that mining technique. We are also actively approaching sites to make sure they know we are now safe so we can be removed from blacklists etc. You are also welcome to conduct your own code review of our site to make sure yourself or get someone that knows how to.

The way ASICBOOST works is difficult to explain without getting too technical. It is safe to say the technology allows miners to reduce the number of potential hashes required to solve a network block, resulting in increased efficiency. This results in making mining more profitable for anyone who has access to this technology in the first place. Not only does ASICBOOST improve the dollar per second earnings, but it also reduces the energy consumption required to achieve the increased profitability.

No we only offer PROP mining for all of our coins. You get a bigger portion of the block reward if you have a larger amount of shares compared to all other miners mining the same coin in the same round. We do have solo mining available if that is of interest.

No we only offer single coin mining stratums.

We grab your miners software/hardware ID that it gives our pool when it connects and authorises so you can see what version it is running in our stats. Occasionaly it can show as null temporarily whilst our stats system updates and will normally appear within a minute.

No you only get paid for the currency you are mining

If this happens please let us know via Discord and we will update and fix the dead links.

We support P2PKH(Legacy), P2SH & Bech32 addresses, any issues please let us know. However please strip any name from the front of the address like bitcoincash: or anything: it should just be an address in apperance like these for example:

1BvBMSEYstWetqTFn5Au4m4GFg7xJaNVN2 - This is a P2PKH (Legacy Format style address)

3J98t1WpEZ73CNmQviecrnyiWrnqRhWNLy - This is a P2SH style address, similar to above but starts with a 3 instead of a 1

bc1qar0srrr7xfkvy5l643lydnw9re59gtzzwf5mdq - This is a Bech32 style aaddress, very different to both of the above examples

bitcoincash:qp3wjpa3tjlj042z2wv7hahsldgwhwy0rq9sywjpyy - This is a BitcoinCash style address, if used it needs to have the bitcoincash: part stripped otherwise your miner will not connect

Different coins may have a different starting letter or number to those shown above, this is just to give a visual refference to address identification

To set a custom payout amount for your miner/worker simply put: mp=X.XX where X's are your desired payout amount in your password field of your miner/software. So once your balance reaches this threshold it will payout in the next payment run. To remove and set back to the pool default of 0.01 simply connect your miner again but without mp=X.XX in the password field and it will remove any custom payout amounts. You will need to do this for your walletaddress and walletaddress.workernames if you connect with mp=X.XX set. Any trouble we can set/remove these for you. Thanks!

To set a custom initial difficulty and minimum difficulty for your miner/worker simply put: d=X where X is your desired initial difficulty and md=X where X is your minimum difficulty desired in your password field of your miner/software. So it should look like this d=10,md=5 where 10 is initial difficulty and 5 is minimum difficulty. To mine with variable difficulty simply remove d=X,md=X from your password field. Thanks!
