Ok first, I'm not associated with the pool other than I am a miner with a decent amount of hashrate.
Slushpool was the first mining pool in the world, the first Bitcoin pool and has never added any altcoin mining other than some things merge mined with Bitcoin.
That's all changed!
Because of ZCash's innovation and the promise the technology represents, they have added ZCash mining to their well respected and distinguished pool.
Why Mine at Slushpool?
Well this article has some reasons. 5 of them in fact: https://blog.slushpool.com/5-reasons-to-mine-zcash-with-slush-pool-464cf1112016
But I will give you my own 5 reasons from the perspective of a long-time miner.
Advanced LIVE Graphing
See your rigs and the pool's hashrate graphed in real time. While other pools (Suprnova, Coinmine) lets you see a live hashrate for your whole farm, it is a small window of time and it doesn't let you drill down and see graphs of individual rigs (aka workers) hashrates. Slushpool lets you see what your farm and individual rigs are doing at any given moment, live and in real time in a graph spanning several hours.
Live Hashrate Averaging
While other pools (Flypool,etc.) show you an an hourly and daily average of your hashrate, you have to reload the page to see it updated. Slushpool shows you a constantly updated 5 minute, 1 hour and 24 hour average. See your average evolve in realtime! Great to see the results of overclocking, different mining software, etc.
Advanced Monitoring Features
In mining, UPTIME is the name of the game. This is especially true in GPU mining where lockups are more common. Unlike Flypool and other pools which notify you when a rig is down completely, Slushpool lets you set a threshold of a minimum hashrate per rig or worker. If your rig drops below that hashrate then Slushpool can notify you by email and/or send your phone a notification through the mobile app sooner than other pools for better uptime. Which brings us to ....
Free Mobile App
Slushpool made a free mobile app for iOS and Android which lets you see all of the info you'd see from desktop on a mobile device. It also features notifications for rig state change (rigs down) and blocks found.
0% Pool Fee
As Slushpool is trying to build up its ZCash hashrate it is offering no mining fee for ZCash miners who mine there. Pool Fees atop your mining software fees can often take as much as 5% of what you earn when combined. Keep more of what you earned for higher profit/faster ROI !
Sidenote: In the mining world, pools come and go and it takes a lot to build the trust and respect to be around as long as Slushpool has been. You can have peace of mind knowing your profits are secure on what to me is the most advanced ZCash mining pool in the world.
