Only stratum pools are supported.
The Stratum pool has to use extranonce2 size 4 or higher. Minimal pool difficulty has to be respected or the mining will not work.
If you are not sure if the chosen pool is compatible, use our
Choose a stable working pool! Unstable pools often go into a dead state, thereby giving you no hashing power.
Pool deaths and order cancellations are penalized with 10 seconds worth of mining. Penalties go to the miners working on that order.
Rapid work changes are penalized due to the miners' reduction of performance.
Speed limitation on the order is only approximate. See
for more details.
Duration is only approximate, because hashing speeds can vary.
It may take several minutes before your orde reaches the desired speed.
If your chosen pool is unstable, you will not achieve the full wanted speed.
If you select a pool for the wrong algorithm, you will still have to pay for the shares, submitted by miners.
If you cancel the order, the remaining Bitcoins and the remaining service fee are refunded, but it may take up to one minute.
Use the edit functionality if you wish to only change the order price or speed limit. Editing orders is completely free. Fixed orders cannot be edited.
At submit time, your order may appear to be dead and it takes up to one minute for the order to become alive (pool verification process).
The system may auto-cancel orders that are inactive for a long period (due to a very low price) or mostly dead (placeholder orders).
By submitting this order, you agree to the no refund policy. Shares being rewarded to miners are non-refundable.
You cannot place an order to mine on NiceHash.
Choose a high difficulty pool. Choosing an excessively low difficulty will result in a dead order and penalties will be paid to miners.
