How is buying hashing power at NiceHash different from Hashflare or Genesis cloud mining contracts?
Buying hashing power at NiceHash is cloud mining, but it is very different from cloud mining contracts.
The main advantages over cloud mining contracts are:
Ability to buy massive hashing power and spend it in a short amount of time.
Independence from the time factor: that has a huge impact in the cryptocurrency world - you don't know if one coin can still be popular in a year.
Flexibility in prices: You can change the price, amount and limit on the order without canceling it.
This means that you can ensure the lowest price, if the marketplace shows you an opportunity to do so.
Pay as you mine: You will only pay for the hashing speed you have received and the fee will be applied only to the spent amount of bitcoins. If you decide to cancel the order, the remaining funds will stay with you.
Flexibility in pool selection: You can choose any pool out there as long as it meets the minimum requirements (it has to support the stratum and defined difficulty).
You can verify the pool with our pool verificator.
Detailed statistics on order status.
Two marketplaces: EU and USA.
Two types of orders: fixed for stable mining and standard for competitive mining.
