We currently accept the following payment methods:
cryptocurrencies: Bitcoin (VIA blockchain.com). daily limit: 50,000 USD, minimum amount per order: 200 USD
NOTE: In some rare cases, some issuing banks may charge additional fees from customers who purchase Bitcoin or cloud mining services via Bank Transfer. They call it ‘cash advance’. If considered, please contact your bank beforehand for further information.
On the first glance one might think that buying miner X is slightly cheaper than hosted mining. However, there are a number of “hidden” costs related to purchasing and maintaining a miner that change the economics significantly:
Shipping costs: few merchants will cover this, but in most cases they will charge you extra.
Customs dues / VAT: if it is an international delivery you will likely have to pay customs dues and VAT; generally this has a huge impact on the total cost of your mining equipment.
Delivery time: when you pay for your device you have to wait until the miner is packaged and shipped; if it is held up in the customs this can take weeks. And during that time you cannot mine at all (“opportunity costs”). You have to wait and hope. And if the merchant has a stock shortage; it is you who has to wait. With Miller Mining you pay and get your hashpower immediately online. No delays!
Costs for additional equipment: when buying miners from larger retailers you often have to buy additional equipment like an extra PSU that matches the electricity specs for your country, control units and specific shelves to store them efficiently. This adds up significantly to the overall price for hashpower.
Setting the system up: when the device finally arrived you have to assemble and configure it. Beginners often underestimate the amount of work and technical knowledge that is needed to bring the device up and optimize its settings. People that used the first ASICs spend days and weeks on it. In monetary terms this costs you twice: (i) your time and (ii) lost mining opportunity.
Maintenance: hardware failures, outages and crashes could lead to downtimes between seconds and weeks. If your unit breaks you have to return it and start from scratch (by the way: check the guarantee time of your miner; it is often less than a year). With Miller Mining you have a guaranteed uptime of 100%: in case one of your units fails another unit will be switched over and start mining for you the very same second.
Electricity: having the machines at home not only brings heat and noise, but also an increase of your electricity bill; an important factor that many underestimate.
Please do not get us wrong: we do not want to discourage anyone from mining at home! We are often asked about prices and realized that many users do not know about all the hidden costs. If you compare the true costs, you will notice that our prices are very competitive. We want to provide you the best possible mining experience, so that you can focus on mining your favorite coins (and we take care of the rest).
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.
It is always possible that mining hardware crashes, slows down or completely breaks. In all these cases, our algorithms ensure that other miners are allocated to the relevant pools to fully compensate for possible hashpower loss. This way our clients will not lose a second of mining time.
Bitcoin and altcoin mining depends highly on the prices and network difficulties of the Cryptocurrencies that you are mining, which cannot be predicted. It would not “look right” if we would provide data on the mining performance and sell contracts at the same time. Therefore, we recommend all our clients to do their own research and do their own performance calculation.
For example, you might want to have a look at coinwarz.com. Remember that some of our products have a daily maintenance fee which must be deducted from the daily mining rewards.
Please note that the website is an independent source of reference and not related to Miller Mining in any manner.
You are able to mine Bitcoin and various altcoins directly via our mining allocation page*. The availability of cryptocurrencies you can mine depends on the contract you have chosen.
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
(*) “Miller 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.
Miller 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, Miller 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. Miller 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.
Please refer to section “When do I get my mining output?” for more details.
Besides the fact that we ourselves mine with the very same hardware that we offer to our clients, our capital is limited. We believe that Bitcoin and Altcoin mining is one of the best ways to receive Cryptocurrencies, however, we do not want to “put all our eggs in one basket”.
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.
