Most important! Mining-Dutch is created by miners for miners.
It's our highest priority to provide you with a transparent pool, Where everything is tracable and nothing is hidden.
Our servers are located in Amsterdam the Netherlands, Directly connected to the US and the rest of Europe and Russia.
Multiport and Pool overview
You might have noticed that the difficulty and nethashrate stated on the Pool-Overview do not match with the stats given on the pool itself,
As most multiport uses the difficulty given by the wallet / blockchain.
That is in fact a big disadvantage you make when actualy mining the coin.
As the difficulty given by the wallet, it is in fact the difficulty of the last block that has been mined.
If you're mining you want to know the difficulty of the block you are mining atm.
Well, The difficulty we provide on the pool is! that current difficulty, And with that difficulty whe calculate the amount of hashrate that should be on the network to provide that difficulty.
With our multiport working with these numbers, It will switch on or from a coin when the difficulty is actually high / Low.
No more mining on what you think is a low difficulty block, But after lots of hard work, You find out you mined a much heavier block then the pool told you.
The Multiport checks all profitability every 20 seconds and then switch to the most profitable coin immediately, Not waiting for blocks or anything, It just goes for the profit.
Actual profitability is being monitored daily, and low performing coins will be disabled.
Payout and Fee
We're running a per-share (PPS) payout system. With payouts every 2 hours.
All pools charge a 2.0 Fee, Some unstable coins excluted, The amount of fee is stated on the dashboard page of every pool.
There are is no extra fee on any transaction, This is all included in the fee.
Frequently Asked Questions
- Q: When will I get paid? A: This pool uses the following payout system.
- Q: What is a orphan block? A: Coins generated by a block will not be available to you right away. They will take some time to be confirmed by the entire network before you are allowed to transfer them out of the pool. Usually coins have a confirmation set to 120. What that actually means: the network (not the pool) has to discover 120 additional blocks on top of the one found by the pool to confirm it.
- Q: What is estimated payout? A: Estimated payout is your estimated payout if a block is found at that time. This is an estimate according to your amount of shares submitted for the round(s).
- Q: What is a share? A: Finding blocks is not an easy task. Since it would take a really long time on some coins, finding a block is broken down into shares. Depending on the server side setting, each share can be a certain difficulty. The more difficult each share is to find by miners, the fewer total shares are required to eventually find a block.
- Q: I am having problems connecting to the pool. A: Double check your settings against our getting started page.
Pay Per Share (PPS) - Each share receives a fixed reward known in advance. This is the ultimate low- variance, low-maturity simple method, but has the highest risk for the operator, and hence lower expected returns than other methods and risk of collapse if not managed properly.
On the server side, each share is checked against the coin daemon (a server side wallet with more features) if it is indeed a valid block solution. Every share computed has the potential to be a block solution. I will not go into details why this is, but rest assured that share estimates for blocks can sometimes be exceeded. In the long run though, shorter round with less shares than required will make up for those taking very long.
Keep in mind: shares are not blocks! Shares are part of a block and will count towards the block payout!
At times, you will see shares being rejected by the pool. This can happen if you try to send an outdated share right after a block was found. Stratum, a protocol used by a miner to request work from a server, is used for share submission and getting new work. It is very solid when it comes to avoiding rejects but they can still happen once in a while.
If you are seeing reject all the time, then something isn't working right on your end. You may also notice that your hashrate on the pool website is not increasing while your invalid share count keeps climbing up. In that case turn off your miner and check your settings!
