FAQ-1 : Quick start guide for beginners

  1. Sign up
  2. Set the coin you want to get at Auto Exchange page. (Optional)
  3. Start mining
    • Simple coin mining (Port 20XXX)
      Select any coin and check its port number. Just start mining with appropriate miner and algo right away. Actual port numbers are listed on main homepage.
    • Algo switch mining (Port 17XXX)
      We provide auto switching port for each algo. These ports switch coins time to time to mine the most profitable coin. Best for Rental, ASIC, FPGA miners. Actual port numbers are listed on main homepage.
    • Multi-algo switch mining (Port 12XXX)
      You can mine different algo coins by using Hub feature, or third party mining helper programs. Good for GPU miners but need some knowledge to set up and optimize. Actual port numbers are listed on main homepage.
    • Use mining helper program
      • MultiPoolMiner (Thanks to aaronsace)
        Benchmark GPU performance, auto download miner programs and multi algo switch based on profitability
      • Awesome Miner (Thanks to awesomeminer)
        Profit switching, farm managements
      • NemosMiner (Thanks to minerx117)
        Multi algo profit switching for NVIDIA miners

  • Pool fee is 0.9%. Lower than any other pools.

FAQ-2 : How to set up multi-algo switching?

1. Set your favorite coin at "Auto Exchange" page

Any coin you mined will be exchanged automatically to your favorite coin and credited to target pool.
Normally you will get more favorite coins since auto profit switching will dynamically mine the most profitable coins.

This exchange makes "buy order" on your favorite coin and affects trading world.
So "you get more coins" and "it's value increased" too.
This is the smartest way to investigate altcoins these days.

2. You need to point your rigs to matching algorithm url and port.

This host and port is just an endpoint for each algo. Mining will not start at this time.

3. You can set coin or auto profit switching at "My Workers" page.

It's not each pool's "My Workers" page. It's Hub's page.

"Account's default coin" is the default coin for your all mining rigs to mine.
Also you can set coin for each workers too.

(Newly added worker will mine account's default coin automatically)

4. You can switch between algorithms using sgminer5, ccminer or with other helper softwares.

- For AMD users. Use sgminer

Windows : https://github.com/miningpoolhub/all-in-one-miner/releases
Linux (source) : https://github.com/miningpoolhub/sgminer

This is conf setting for example.

"pools" : [
"poolname" : "neoscrypt",
"url" : "stratum+tcp://hub.miningpoolhub.com:12012",
"user" : "username.workername",
"pass" : "x",
"algorithm" : "neoscrypt"
"poolname" : "x15",
"url" : "stratum+tcp://hub.miningpoolhub.com:12009",
"user" : "username.workername",
"pass" : "x",

"pass" : "x",

"poolname" : "keccak",
"url" : "stratum+tcp://hub.miningpoolhub.com:12003",
"user" : "username.workername",

"url" : "stratum+tcp://hub.miningpoolhub.com:12001",
"user" : "username.workername",

"algorithm" : "zuikkis",
"nfactor" : "11"
"failover-only" : true,
"failover-switch-delay" : "30",
"queue" : "0"

You can set "intensity", "gpu-engine", "gpu-memclock", "gpu-powertune", "worksize", "nfactor", "thread-concurrency" for each algorithm pool.
(Set the most frequently mining algorithm to the front of list. It helps coin switching efficiency a little)

Or, if you want to mix with other miner (e.g. ethminer), below batch is useful.

EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool us-east.ethash-hub.miningpoolhub.com:12020 -ewal username.workername -eworker username.workername -esm 3 -epsw x -allcoins 1 -retrydelay -1

goto start

(genoil ethminer works well with "--farm-retries" option but other ethminer release doesn't. Check developer's name if you are using ethminer)

- For nVidia users. Use ccminer

Forum : https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=167229.0

and make a batch file like below.

EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool us-east.ethash-hub.miningpoolhub.com:12020 -ewal username.workername -eworker username.workername -esm 3 -epsw x -allcoins 1 -retrydelay -1

5. Start mining!

Check if something went wrong. 100% reject rate means you have set something wrong, like inappropriate algorithm and port.

FAQ-3 : My hashrate is lower than actual

Hashrate showing on site is just an estimated value. Pool doesn't know about miner very much. It just collects certain "shares" which is some piece of hash that satisfies certain conditions.
So don't worry, it's all about probability thing. Your hashrate on site can go up and down time to time.
