What is BitMinter?
Bitminter is a bitcoin mining pool that aims to make it easy for anyone to make bitcoins. Bitminter is one of the oldest pools. Since we opened in 2011 over 450 000 people have registered accounts with us. We hope that you will join us too!
What do I need?
ASICs took over in 2013. Mining one bitcoin with just a PC now takes millions of years. You’ll want a 1 TH/s or faster ASIC machine to start a small mining-at-home operation. Have a look at Antminer from Bitmain and AvalonMiner from Canaan. Used ASICs are available at ebay and similar places.
Your work is recorded in shifts. When we create a new block you get a share of the income proportional to how much of the work in the last 10 completed shifts is yours. This reward system is known as PPLNS with shifts. 99% of the mining income (including transaction fee income) is paid out to users. Donations are optional and will unlock various perks.
