The Pool+ Browser Miner was designed as a tool to allow you to mine cryptocurrency coins. The miner uses computer processing power to generate hashes that get sent to a pool. Once a hash is accepted you get credited for the work with shares. Once the pool finds a block your shares get turned into the coin that you are mining.
The Pool+ Browser Miner requires either an active Supporting or Gold membership which can be found here. The Standard Browser Miner requires an active Standard membership which can also be found here. This membership is free but the miner does charge a 12% fee to cover server costs and upkeep.
Yes, you can virtually open and run the miner on any devices that have a web browser and an internet connection.
How much you can make depends on your hash rate, the pool and luck. Since the coin price, network difficulty and block reward are always changing it can be hard to figure an exact number. We’re currently working on an earnings calculator that will give you an estimate of what you should earn based upon a hash rate.
To start mining on the Browser Miners you have to register an account and obtain an active membership. Once you have your membership you need to go to your settings page and add your wallet address, this step is very important. After that navigate to the miner, select your coin, select your pool, and click the “Start” button. Once you see the hash chart update with your hashes you are mining!
You get paid out based upon what the pool sets the min payout amount. A pool’s min payout amount can vary from pool to pool. You can view the pool’s min payout under the “Pool Stats” section on the miner page. All pools on the miners connect directly to the wallet address specified in your settings.
A wallet is where you can store your cryptocurrency. A wallet is needed in order to receive your earnings from the pool. Suggested wallets are listed below.

You can change your wallet address after you start mining but the pools use your wallet address to associate earning and shares to an account. Once you start mining with a wallet address any coins and shares earned will be under that wallet address. This is on the pool side of things and not handled by the Browser Miners.
There are a couple of ways to cash out your coins that you have earned. You can send your coins to an exchange like Poloniex, sell them for USDT, LTC or BTC and then transfer it to Coinbase. Once in Coinbase, you can send to your PayPal or bank account. Keep in mind that usually there are fees involved when transfer digital currency.
If the website logs you out while the miner is running it will still continue to run. Unless the “Stop” button is clicked or page tab/browser is closed the miner will continue to run in the background.
If your pool data does not show up then there could be a lost connection between the pool’s api and our miner. If this is the case check back later to see if the pool data is showing up. If the problem persists you can submit a support ticket.
If the miner has stopped producing hashes try refreshing the page to see if it starts working. If it does not you can submit a support ticket.
