Why Mining-Dutch?
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 and Paris France, 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 block.
As the difficulty given by the wallet, 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 a.t.m..
Well, The difficulty we provide on the pool, is! that! current difficulty, And with that difficulty, we 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, It does not wait for a block to be found, It just goes for the profit immediately.
Actual profitability is being monitored daily, and low performing coins will be disabled from the multiport.

Pool overview
  • logo : Currency Convertion is Available.
  • logo : Currency Convertion is Temporary disabled, no exchange is available.
  • logo : Multiport mining is enabled.
  • Workers : The number of workers currently digging in the pool.
  • Pool Speed : The total pool hashrate currently digging in the pool.
  • Calc. Netspeed : The amount of hashrate that is needed to find the blocks in time of the provided block spawning time, on the current difficulty.
             NOTE! This is not the actual network hashrate.! It's been calculated to show you how your changes are in actually finding the block
  • Difficulty : The current difficulty of the next block, This may be a different value then you will see on the pool dashboard page or on the block explorer,
             Wait until a block is found and you will see that it matches this number. We use this difficulty for our multiport and profitability calculations.
  • Btc / (Mhs Ghs or Ths) : Your expected profit calculated on the current difficulty, network-speed, block-reward and coin-price.
  • Progress : The amount of shares currently processed for this block, This value is calculated at the current difficulty, where 100% is the expected amount of shares needed to solve this block.
  • Status : Represents the status of our pool and our stratums,
             - Off-line means the whole pool is closed and no mining nor withdrawals are possible at this moment,
             - Maintenance means the stratum pool is closed, but withdrawals are still possible

  • Workers overview
  • Hashrate : The average hashrate measured over the past 5 minutes.
  • d= : The current share difficulty of your miner, increasing this value will decrease your shares per second
             Decreasing will increase your shares per second
  • S/s : The amount of shares (work) your miner is submitting to the pool every second (sharerate)
             Optimal value should be in between 0.08 - 0.40 S/s.
  • BTC / (Mhs/Ghs or Ths) : The current amount of BTC you are currently earning per (Mhs/Ghs or Ths) per day.

  • Examples:
  • Above sharerate is to high, Solve this by doubling the difficulty of your miner to d=32768, This will halve the S/s to approx. 0.23 S/s

  • The above worker is running efficient, You can let it run now.

  • Payout and Fee
    We're running a per-share (PROP) payout system.
    Payouts are usualy within 15 minutes after a transaction is confirmed.
    In general all pools charge a 2% Fee, (Exceptions can be found in below table),
    The amount of fee is also stated on the dashboard page of every pool.
    There is no extra fee on ALTcoin transactions, This is all included in the pool-fee.
    However, For Some currency's we have to charge a network fee on withdrawal:
    CurrencyWithdraw Fee
    420.00000003 42
    BCH0.00010000 BCH
    BTC0.00010000 BTC
    DSH0.00100000 DSH
    LTC0.01000000 LTC
    CurrencyPool Fee
    B2X1.00 %
    BCH1.00 %
    BTC1.00 %
    DSH1.00 %
    LTC1.00 %

    Currency Convertion
    In your Wallets page you also have the options to convert your coins to another currency of your choice
    - So how does this work?
    At first, You mine your coins a usual, and you get your coins credited to your account as usual.
    Only after your coins has reached confirmed status, the conversion kicks in.
    We process all your confirmed credits and sell them directly at the exchange, the price we sold them on, is the price your coins will be worth in convertion.
    Your transactions type "Credit" will be changed to type "Converted", And the value of these transactions combined will be Credited as one Converted Credit.
    You can see all your transactions Here
    An extra Fee of 3% is charged on Currency Convertion.
    • Q: Will my coins I mined before enabling Currency Convertion, gets converted to?
    •  A:Yes, we convert all coins.
    • Q: My coins are already confirmed, why are they not being converted?
    •  A: The pool will sell the coins first before it will convert any coin, Due to the minimum tx size of each exchange, we can only sell the coins once this limit has been reached.
    • Q: What does the message: "Convertion disabled by pool" mean?
    •  A:Exchanges like to throw their wallets off-line or in maintenance while keeping the market open, If we can not deposit your coins, we can not sell them, if we can not sell them we can not convert them.
          As long as the exchange wallet is off-line or in maintenance your coins will not be converted, once it's opens, The convertion will Continue.
    • Q: When do I get my Converted coins payed out?
    •  A:Same as any other coin, as soon as your balance exceeds your AP threshold set in your wallet.
    MD Lottery
    2 times per day, we randomly reward 1 user to win a random amount between: 0.0002 - 0.0015 BTC
    What do I need to do to play in this lottery?
    You don't have to do anything but mine on one of our pools, We randomly select one miner who has mined in the past 24hours.

    Frequently Asked Questions
    • Q: When will I get paid?
    •  A:We run payouts for every currency every 15 minutes.
    • Q: How does the pool determine my payouts?
    •  A: This pool uses the following payout system. (PROP)
          Prop (Proportional) Payouts Explained
      A proportional pool means miners are simply paid out when a block is found. No blocks, no payout! With a Prop pool the risk is all on the miners if it takes longer than expected to find a block then the miners earn less. On the flip side, if the pool is lucky (they will all average out the same eventually) the miners get more. This is in complete contrast to the PPS pool where there is no "Variance" Using made up data for simplicity, here’s an example: *A block is found after 100000 shares *You submitted 1000 of those shares (you have 1% of the pools total hash power) *There’s 200FTC per block Quite simply you will get 1% of the block = 2FTC. Now if the pool has a bad round (a round is the time taken to find a block) and it takes 200000 shares to find a block (twice as long) and you have submitted 2000 shares (as you’ve been mining twice as long), you still only get 1% of the block = 2FTC. This can also work in the miners favor too as if it takes half the time (50000 shares) to find a block and you submitted only 500 - again - 2ftc. Basically with a Prop pool you always get you percentage of the block and you win/lose depending on the “Luck” of the pool.
    • Q: The Terms of Agreements statement 5, Tells me my coins will be truncated after 6weeks,
      Does this also apply for coins that has Currency Convertion enabled, but are not being converted for a various of reasons?
    •  A:No, If you have enabled Currency Convertion, we take responsibility for this balance,
      We will not truncate these balances, and as soon as we can convert these coins we will convert them as normal.
      NOTE: As we are not an exchange we do not have any control over markets, there might not be any exchange available for a long time.
      In this case, we advice you to disable convertion and store these coins in your local wallet until there is an exchange available again.
    • Q: How long does it take before I can withdraw my coins?
    •  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 140. What that actually means: the network (not the pool) has to discover 140 additional blocks on top of the one found by the pool to confirm it.
      The amount of confirmations needed for each currency can be found inside every pool, From the menu: Statistics => Blocks.
    • Q: What is an Orphan Block?
    •  A: Detached or Orphaned blocks are valid blocks which are not part of the main chain.
      They can occur naturally when two miners produce blocks at similar times or they can be caused by an attacker (with enough hashing power) attempting to reverse transactions.
    • 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.
      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!
    • Q: I am having problems connecting to the pool.
    •  A: Double check your settings against our getting started page.
            If the problem persists contact us by making a support ticket here: Support.
    • Q: My Hashrate is not showing on the pool.
    •  A: 9 Out of 10 times the problem lies in the workername, double check your workername on missing capitals etc.
      Also make sure your miner is delivering shares accepted in the command screen, if you do not see any accepted shares our pool does not show any hashrate.
      In this case make sure the pool difficulty is not to high for your miner. You can check what difficutly is being used on a port here: getting started page.
      You can also set the difficulty yourself by using d="Your desired difficulty number" as your password in your miner software.
