Is CryptoGuru pool 50/50 a good pool? How do we judge?

I’ve been too proud to ask but, now realize without a pool I cannot solo mine at 3.5tb…

I’ve read that you need more than one coin to get into a pool. Is this true?

I plan to pay it back to the fountain that gave me my first coin. It only allows one coin per address:


I just read that we should have about 100 TB before we think about mining solo.

I think I also read that the 0-100 pool is best for low capacities because 100% of the reward is distributed based on “historical share”, which is based on your estimated capacity as a proportion of the pool (important if we’re not often going to actually “win”).

There’s a list of pools. I’m on PoCC 0-100 with about 10 TB and I get paid out roundabout how often the calculator says I should, so that’s good.

sent you a burst so you can change assignment, also look at a pool friendly to small miners like this one

This is good info to get me started on how to research pools, thanks.

I’m looking forward to actually getting something out of my mine. With solo mining so far: nothing… Pool mining seems like the only way to get something back without building a petabyte (or larger) mine.

Would I be right in thinking that if the calculator shows that 40 TB should yield 990 coins every 30 days (roughly) and that there are 994 coins per block, that mining solo I might expect to mine a block roughly once a month with 40 TB?

I’m a noob. But, that estimate sounds high.

Calculator estimates usually run high, but it can give you a rough idea.

Also, keep in mind that the mining difficulty is constantly increasing.
