Dear ViaBTC users:
To meet growing demand of mining diversification from users all over the world and provide with a wider range of mining selections, ViaBTC now presents to you our new member - ETH mining pool.
What is Ethereum
Ethereum is a decentralized platform that runs smart contracts: applications that run exactly as programmed without any possibility of downtime, censorship, fraud or third party interference. It enables developers to create markets, store registries of debts or promises, move funds in accordance with instructions given long in the past (like a will or a futures contract) and many other things that have not been invented yet, all without a middle man or counter party risk.
Till now, about 96.31 million ETH have been mined with a total market cap of about 65.57 billion dollars, ranking 2nd in global cryptocurrency market capitalizations.
Mine ETH with GPU
ETH now can be mined by GPU and GPU-integrated miners. We strongly recommend miners to join a professional mining pool to guarantee higher income.
Please refer to ViaBTC Mining Software Guide for hardware requirements and mining settings.
Multiple mining modes
You can mine ETH in ViaBTC and choose from multiple payment methods: PPS+, PPLNS or SOLO. Check fees here. (https://pool.viabtc.com/help/pricing/)
