1.1 F.A.Q. What is Bitcoin?

Bitcoin is a open source, peer-to-peer payment system introduced in 2009.

It is a type of digital currency in which encryption techniques are used

to regulate the generation of units of currency and verify the transfer

of funds, operating independently of a central bank.

Altcoins are generally referenced as other crypto coins then Bitcoin (BTC). What is mining pool?

Mining pool is place where miners join mining operation together to mine crypto coins. What is the PROP payout system??

Each miner submits "shares" of work and when the pool finds a block, the divide the block reward based

on the proportion of the shares - if you did 50% of the work you get 50% of the reward,

if you did 3% of the work you get 3% of the reward.. What is the mining pool fees?

Mining pool fee is 0%. Plus fee for payout transaction. Why do I have no balance?

When mining, you don't earn coins until you've participated in a round that finds a valid block. Until you have

helped to mine a round that solves a valid block. If you just joined, even a few hours ago there is a

good chance there has not been a block found yet that you were a part of when mining. Once a valid block is found payout

will happen within ca. 2 hours.

Casually if pool is receiving more then 50% of global hashrate, there is much bigger chance of generating higher rate of

orphaned blocks and it can give problems with payouts. High rate of orphaned blocks can also be caused by big

rigs keep switching on and off and between pools. Why does Statistics page says I have 0 shares?

Make sure your mining software are sending valid shares. Statistics page updates up to twice every minute.

Search for your wallet to see detailed statistics, if you are sending invalid shares you will see it there. Can I enhance my mining performance?

Yes! Keep your GPU drivers up to date, specially with high end graphic cards.

Mining software updates casually too, keep in touch I'll post links to updated software.

Use mining pool near you. Use ping to determinate distance to mining pool. How is the detailed statistics computed?

Statistics are draw from the json format output you can download. What is best to mine?

It mostly depends on the current value of the coin.

Good source for that stats is: https://whattomine.com/ What is POW?

POW mining is "Proof Of Work" <-- mining where such hardware as CPU, GPU and ASIC are needed to generate new blocks (coins). What is POS?

POS mining is "Proof Of Stake" <-- mining where coins and online wallet are used to generate new blocks (coins).

1.1.3 What is browser mining?

Browser mining works similarly to normal pool mining where several miners join work together.

The miner is normally running in background. There is User interface in settings-page. To see it you have to Enable Browser Mining in settings page.

Currently Browser Mining is running in development mode and we have to vote for payoutcoin 1st.

1.1.4 What is a faucet?

A faucet is a site where you can earn free bitcoins in exchange for advertising

exposure or for completing small tasks. Faucets are a way for newcomers to get

the feeling of earning, moving and spending bitcoins for free, even if in small

amounts, so that they can try the system and, hopefully, get more involved with it.

Remember 1 Satoshi = 0.00000001 Bitcoin.
