What is "Mining"?

To put it simple, the cryptocurrency network is a gigantic peer-to-peer ledger of past transactions, all of which need to be verified and confirmed. The ever-lasting confirmations require a huge number of hashing power (provided by mining hardware) to solve complicated and random mathematical problems. And to reward people who contribute their hashing power, the cryptocurrency network will send out “coins” on a regular basis. This is how cryptocurrencies are “mined” – a reward mechanism of the network for hashing power contributors.

Type Period Block reward
BTC 10 Min 12.5 BTC
BCH 10 Min 12.5 BCH
LTC 2.5 Min 25 LTC
DASH 2.5 Min 1.8 DASH

Mining hardware has evolved step by step as follows:


    CPU Mining

    Early users were allowed to use their CPUs to mine. They went outdated by surging hashrate of the network.


    GPU Mining

    GPU Mining is drastically faster and more efficient than CPU mining. Support mining: DASH, ETH, ZEC.


    ASIC Mining

    ASIC miners are designed to mine cryptocurrency at high difficulty. They are vastly faster than all previous technologies. Support mining: BTC, BCH, LTC.

How to start mining at home?

If you want to try mining yourself, you’ll need to prepare with the following:

A miner machine

You can only mine cryptocurrencies using specific mining hardware (GPU or ASIC miners)


You need devices for power, internet connection, ventilation, cooling etc

Mining software

You need to download special software to run your miner

Mining pool

You need to join a mining pool where the profit from each block is allocated among pool members based on their hashrates

What is "Cloud Mining"?

Cloud mining enables users to purchase hashing power from hardware in our data centers, without managing hardware, software, electricity or other issues to mine cryptocurrencies. With cloud mining, we will work as your agent to deploy and run the most advanced miners under professional operation and maintenance. We will help you achieve the best ROI secured by lower power consumption, electricity cost and higher mining yields in our own pool. You can start mining cryptocurrencies almost in real-time on purchase of our cloud mining contract. It will save you all the trouble and nuisance to run a miner on your own, and bring to you more yields instead.
