As you might already know, NiceHash will support Zcash from day one (28th of the October).
We are pushing boundaries and working around the clock so that we can offer you something user friendly in the front but beast in the back.
As a seller of hashing power you can earn more because the buyers are determining the final price. You are also paid in Bitcoins - this is the main difference from other pools.
But if you want to possess ZEC, then it is better to buy hashing power from NiceHash, because you will be able to get massive amount of hashing power in really short amount of time for the lowest price possible.
All of this is possible by one of a kind marketplace NiceHash is offering.
Yep, other mining services offer you to get 0.x or few hashes, with us, you will be able to buy several kilo hash per second of speed. And what is the best beauty - our orders (contracts) are cancellable at any time and your remaining invested funds are returned. If something goes wrong, you simply cancel mining and you loose 0.
@NikiNiceHash Hi I am new to the NiceHash model, so for what is my understanding of what said above, it will either be possible to sell our zcash hashing power to NiceHash and get Bitcoin as the reward, or buy hashing power from you if we want to mine zcash directly.
So it will not be possible to have you acting as a pool and directly mine zcash, getting zcash in reward, is this correct?
Is great that you are setting up a miner for Windows as well. Have you already done some test on Windows? Is it as good as Linux to mine?
Hello @armyman ! Yes, you are correct. NiceHash will not act as a pool. It will collect hashing power and direct it to the pool of buyer’s choosing. Buyers will compete for the best price for hashing power that is available on the marketplace. And yes, Windows results are 5-10 H/s at the time of testing.
