Hardware Mining Fees
Fees are currently the same for PPS and PPLNS.
Cloud Mining Fees
Cloud mining fees vary according to contract. Please check your ”Purchased Contracts” page to see cloud mining fees for your contract.
Cloud mining fees are for covering electricity cost of the machines.
The extra block rewards come from transaction fees. For example, if the block reward bonus is 105%, the 5% comes from transaction fees.
We do change the block reward from time to time based on how much the pool is making in transaction fees. When the pool starts to see more TX fees coming in then we will raise the block reward again. The change is for all miners on the pool. In the past the block reward we give has been as high as 120%
