General Information

What is the Pool+ Browser Miner?

The Pool+ Browser Miner was designed as a tool to allow you to mine the cryptocurrency Monero and Electroneum.  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.

Why does it cost $1.33 USD/Month?

Since the Pool+ Browser Miner connects your wallet directly to the pool we do not charge a % fee for using the service.  Without the $1.33 Supporting Membership we would not be able to keep the miners running.

Can I run multiple devices at the same time?

Yes, you can virtually open and run the miner on any devices that has a web browser and an internet connection.

How much can I make?

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.

How do I start mining on the Pool+ Browser Miner?

To start mining on the Pool+ Browser page you have to register your Supporting Membership.  Once you have your Supporting Membership you need to go to your settings page and add your wallet address, this step is very important.  After that navigate to the Pool+ miner page, select your coin, select your pool, set your worker id/threads/throttle (if desired) and click the “Start” button.  Once you see the hash chart update with your hashes you are mining!

When do I get paid?

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 Pool+ miner connect directly to the wallet address specified in your settings.

What is a wallet and how do I get one?

A wallet is where you can store your cryptocurrency.  A wallet is needed in order to receive your earnings from the pool.  If mining the coin Monero we suggest using the My Monero wallet.  If mining the coin Electroneum we suggest using Electroneum Wallet.

Can I change my wallet address after I started mining?

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 Pool+ miner.

Can I mine directly to an exchange?

Some pools allow you to mine directly to an exchange like Poloniex.  As of right now we do not determine if a pool allows this so it’s best to use the wallets suggested here.

How do I cash out the coins I’ve earned?

There are a couple of ways to cash out your coins that you have earned.  You can send your coins to an exchange like Cryptopia, sell for fiat currency and then send your fiat 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.

What if the website logs me out?

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.

My pool data is not showing up?

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.

The miner stopped working?

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.
