Coin and profit statistics

Awesome Miner can use the following sources for coin information and statistics, where all popular coins are included:

  • WhatToMine.com: (default)
  • Coinwarz.com: (requires specfic API key)

Awesome Miner can also get profit information from the following multi coin/algorithm pool services:

  • Nicehash
  • Zpool
  • Mining Pool Hub
  • GranatGas
  • Hash Refinery

Display of profit information for a miner

In order for Awesome Miner to display revenue and profit information for a miner, Awesome Miner must know the coin of the pool. If no coin is defined, Awesome Miner will not be able to display this information. To define the coin for the current pool, right click on the miner and select Define Coin Pool.

To display profit information for Nicehash, Zpool or Mining Pool Hub, set the coin to any of the "Unspecified" coins for the algorithm used, for example "Unspecified X11". This indicates that Awesome Miner doesn't know which coin with the X11 algorithm that is being mined, but will be able to detect if one of Nicehash, Zpool or Mining Pool Hub being used and can based on all this information display the correct profit information.

For other coin switching pools, Awesome Miner will not be able to display profit information. The reason is that Awesome Miner has no knowledge of which coin that is being mined - this information is only known by the pool itself.

Is the profit information in Awesome Miner correct?

Awesome Miner uses the information provided by the sources listed above to calculate the profitability based on the current hashrate. If the information on one of these pools are incorrect, Awesome Miner will not be able to detect that. For any profit values that are too high, please compare with the web site of the pool and contact the pool operator for any questions.

If there is a difference between the numbers displayed in Awesome Miner compared to the pool web site, please see the section below about using current profit information compared to 24 hours average.

Lower payout from the pool than expected?

This is not related to Awesome Miner, but how the profit switching pools operate. The profit switching pools are mining what is most profitable at the moment, but at the time the coins are exchanged for Bitcoin, the exchange rate may be lower when everyone is selling the coin at the same time. For this reason, what looked very profitable an hour ago, can turn out to have very low profitability in the end.

Please note that this is a general drawback with profit switching and is related to how each pool is doing the profit switching. For any questions about lower payouts than expected, please contact the pool operators. Awesome Miner is not a mining pool and will not take responsibility for the payout.

Current profit information or 24 hour average

Awesome Miner will by default use the current profit information from all the sources above. Sources like WhatToMine is by default listing the profit information based on the 24 hour average on their web site. For this reason, the numbers display in Awesome Miner may not match what is being display on WhatToMine.

Awesome Miner can be configured to display the 24 hour average profit information instead. This can be configured via the Options dialog, Statistics section. This will not only apply for WhatToMine, but for the other sources listed above as well.
