Leading hashpower marketplace

NiceHash Background

NiceHash is a Slovenian-based cryptocurrency mining platform that allows users to rent or lease their computing power to mine various cryptocurrencies. It was founded in 2014 and gained popularity as a marketplace that connects sellers (miners) with buyers (people looking to mine cryptocurrencies without owning mining hardware).

NiceHash has fiat currency options EUR, USD, and AUD to their exchange platform for users to purchase and withdraw over 60 cryptocurrencies via Visa and Mastercard.

NiceHash Features

How it works:

  1. Sellers (Miners): Users with powerful hardware, such as ASICs (Application-Specific Integrated Circuits) or GPUs (Graphics Processing Units), can download and run the NiceHash miner software. This software enables them to contribute their computational power to the NiceHash platform.
  2. Buyers: Individuals or companies who want to mine cryptocurrencies but lack the necessary hardware can purchase hashing power from sellers on the NiceHash platform. They pay for this service using Bitcoin.
  3. Mining Algorithms: NiceHash supports a variety of mining algorithms used by different cryptocurrencies, such as SHA-256 (used for Bitcoin), Ethash (used for Ethereum), Scrypt (used for Litecoin), and more. Buyers can choose the algorithm they want to mine, and sellers provide the corresponding hashing power.
  4. Payment: As the mining proceeds, the sellers are compensated in Bitcoin for their contributed hashing power, while buyers get the mined cryptocurrency based on the rented hash rate.
