This type of order will allow you to bid for a price as low as possible, but if someone outbids your order, then your order might be paused and you may have to increase the price to sustain the speed.
Your order is the highest paying order
If your order is the highest paying order, NiceHash will assign all the currently available hash power to your order (until it reaches your maximum hash power limit, if you set one). This includes the hash power of the currently active orders and hash power, available from higher-priced sellers (that would be all NiceHash available hash power that is priced lower or equal to the price you set on your order).
Your order is paying equally as the currently active orders
If your order is paying equally as currently active orders and there is no more hash power left, then order is placed in the queue and will be served in a first-come-first-served fashion when the currently active order is finished (Remaining BTC spent). If there is still some available hash power, it will all be assigned to your order (until it reaches your maximum hash power limit, if you set one). If some equally paying orders were placed before your order, they will be processed before your order.
Your order is lower paying than the currently active orders
If your order is lower paying than the currently active orders and there is no more hash power left, then your order is placed in the queue and will be served in a first-come-first-served fashion when there is no higher paying order.
If you've limited your order by a hash power upper limit, you'll get an approximate limited hash power for your order. The limitation needs some time to stabilize at your limit set-point and, therefore, you'll first see the hash power raised to a bit more than your threshold. In the next minutes, the hash power will stabilize just a bit over your threshold. Please keep in mind that this limitation is only approximate.
White orders are active or on standby, red means a dead order (dead buyers pool - will not be served until the pool is dead).
