Help with selecting a mining pool


#1

Finally finish setting my hardware and software. Now it comes down to finding the right mining pool. Since this is my first time selecting a mining pool, I was wondering if some of you could give me a few pointers.

  • I have two mining rigs. Each rig has 7 gtx 1070 ti. I am going to run it at peak hashrate/watt efficiency. So that’s my hash power for now.

  • I am located in the USA.

  • What are the main attributes that I need to look for when selecting the right mining pool for myself?

Thanks.

Top of the list for me is finding a pool with servers that are reasonably local to you - you can check by pinging a few to see which has the least latency for you.

Next up is reliability and luckily, you can’t go far wrong with any of the ZEN pools that are on the go just now.

I will refrain from recommending one over the other as it’s a little unfair however I will say that Suprnova already a large chunk of the market hashrate so my advice would be to use anyone other than them.

Good luck!
