Active Pool Comparison


All testing performed by an Antminer S4 @ 2.18 TH/s (218 Mhz) and my conclusion is that it is possible to earn a profit from this coin in a pool environment, but at the current exchange rate 0.00001010 it is slightly more profitable to run BTC mining, but only just. And if you run in solo environment where you don't have fluctuating hash-rates it can be greater, the difficulty is quite low for this coin.

#1 MiningPools

  • Pool Hashrate: 3 TH/s
  • My Hashrate: 1.5-2.5 TH/s
  • My 24 Hour Earnings: 2,347 HAM
  • Fees: 1%
  • Average Round Duration: 23 Minutes
  • Reward Method: PROP
  • My Thoughts: This option can provide the best results, unfortunately the pool server is quite unstable. There was only one other worker with 500 GH/s power and there were major variations in hashrate power, and not in the same over-power fashion like the other pools were showing. I was lucky to have 2TH/s for half the time. If you can solo mine this coin it is the best option, but that requires a stratum server for network miners or usb connected ASIC hardware, so this is the next best thing at the moment. This pool returns the biggest profit, if only barely, but most pools returned basically the same results the only difference was how many other users are taking profit.

 #2 Hashlink

  • Pool Hashrate: 10 TH/s
  • My Hashrate: 2-3 TH/s
  • My 24 Hour Earnings: 2,110 HAM (Suggested was 1,402 HAM)
  • Fees: 1%
  • Average Round Duration: 6 Minutes
  • Reward Method: PPLNS
  • My Thoughts. I provided at least 25% of the blocks for the pool during testing so solo mining would still be more cost effective. And for having basically the entire network strength at this pool it wasn't providing a greater return, just spreading out the coins to all the users, less powerful users reaping the reward of 2 or 3 people with 2TH/s or more at their disposal.


#3 CoinKing:

  • Pool Hashrate: 2-4TH/s
  • My Hashrate: 2-4TH/s
  • My 24 Hour Earnings: 1,876 HAM
  • Fees: 1%
  • Average Round Duration:18 Minutes
  • Reward Method: PPLNS
  • My Thoughts: As you can see from the picture below I was basically solo mining on this pool, some came and went, but due to the network difficulty being so low I still did turn out a good amount of coins, unfortunately it's still just half of what I would have earned BTC mining (at the current exchange of 0.00000931).

#4 Ispace:

  • Pool Hashrate: 3-5 TH/s
  • My Hashrate: 1-3TH/s
  • My 24 Hour Earnings: 1,285 HAM
  • Fees: 0%
  • Average Round Duration: 10 Minutes
  • Reward Method: PROP
  • My Thoughts: For some reason this pool just doesn't pay out well, I got just as many blocks (86 in a 24 hour period) as I did on other pools but yet I received basically 1/4 of what I would get doing it SOLO and almost half of what any other pool provides.

Got some spare HAM, throw em my way: 1Aak4M9qsV88Mgpp2fUQ7UDYqF3XDADfvK
