Genesis Mining is a Cryptocurrency cloud mining service that offers an easy and safe way to purchase hashpower without having to deal with complex hardware and software setup. We offer hosted cryptocurrency mining services and a variety of mining related solutions to small and large scale customers. The combination of our algorithmic trading framework, mining infrastructure, and proprietary mining farm-management software, Genesis Hive, quickly made us an industry leader.
Our team of mining experts with extensive knowledge of the digital currency sector specializes in building the most efficient and reliable mining facilities. Genesis Mining is also the founding partner of Logos Fund, the first ever Bitcoin Mining Fund, which targets professional investors looking to gain access to Bitcoin’s and various other digital assets’ potential. Our service was founded by the end of 2013 and with now over 2.000.000 users we are the world‘s leading multi-algorithm cloud mining service.
It’s quick and very easy! As soon as we receive your payment your contract will be added to your profile, and you can immediately start mining. Depending on the blockchain algorithm you select and the associated mining service agreement you enter into, you can either mine native cryptocurrencies directly or allocate your hashpower to other cryptocurrencies (marked with AUTO), and even choose a specific allocation for them. For example: 60% LTC, 20% BTC and 20% DOGE. The first mining output is released after 48 hours, and then a daily mining output will follow.
Remark: Every day of mining will be processed and sent to your account in the following 24 hours after the mining day is over. For security reasons, we do not disclose the exact location of our mining farms. As of April 2015, we are operating several mining farms that are located in Europe, America and Asia. Electricity cost and availability of cooling are important, but not the only criteria. See our Datacenters page for more information.
We do not publish a list of pools we are using. Our main criteria for a good pool are: reliability, fee structure and reject rate. Going forward we will solo-mine a few coins (and pass the fee savings to our users!).
Our internal policy is: “be a good crypto citizen”. This means, that we will at least use two different pools (in some cases we use up to four) for each coin. This is to preserve the decentralized nature of the crypto networks! If we become aware that a pool is getting close to 50% share, we will switch away from it and use a backup instead.
Since third-party calculators are a popular way of estimating mining performance, we have set up a Performance estimation tutorial on how to make your own calculations, along with the general explanation about potential mining scenarios.
When evaluating the benefits, please keep in mind that mining, and using our service, is subject to a daily maintenance fee (if applicable to your mining plan) which must be deducted from the daily mining rewards.
The results of cryptocurrency mining highly depend on the price and the network difficulties of the given cryptocurrencies that you are mining. Neither of those can be predicted, so each customer must make an independent decision about the benefits of cryptocurrency mining and, in doing so, should consider the risks and their own circumstance when choosing whether to mine.
You must allocate your hashpower in order to determine the cryptocurrency received for your mining output. If no allocation has been made, the mining output will default to the following for the given blockchain algorithm:
- SHA-256 contract – Bitcoin
- X11 contract – Dash
- Ethash contract – Ethereum
- CryptoNight contract – Monero/Monero Classic
- Scrypt – Litecoin
- Equihash – Zcash
(*) “Genesis Mining Advanced Allocation” (special feature):
It allows you to get mining outputs in many different coins even if they are not mined directly by a certain algorithm. For example, you can get mining outputs in BTC while mining with an X11 algorithm! That is possible by mining the DASH coin directly, which is then automatically swapped to BTC by our algorithmic framework. The Allocation function is designed for customers to receive delivery of their mining results in their preferred cryptocurrency. We call it “mining BTC the smart way”. The same technique is also used to get mining results in LTC with a SHA-256 contract, etc.
