Most popular cryptocurrency mining pools

Are you planning to get in the crypto mining business? but not sure about how to start and where to. Well here I am able to help with some of my thoughts on it. I have spent over 2 years in this trying to learn the cryptocurrency and the mining procedure.

You can solo mine any coin if you want to, but the biggest problem with that is to get the block rewards. Solo mining could take years to solve one complete block. If you don’t have enough mining hash power then my suggestion to you is to join the popular mining pools. You can share your mining power into the pools with the other miners. Every time a block is found and completed the pool automatically distributed the block rewards based on the current mining block difficulties and your actual hashing power in that pool.


You can join any popular mining pools very easily, most of the mining pools take less fees even 0.5% and have huge user base. So you don’t have to wait so long to get profit form your mining rigs. In this article I have share some of the biggest mining pools and its fees, minimum payouts and all the details you need to know.
