Mining Pools

This post is designed as a handy short cut to help you find your favourite pool’s forum thread, or shop for a new pool. The hashrate is an average based on a pool’s published statistics for the week, unless that pool does not publish round history on API or html, in which case it’s the hashrate when the list was updated. I’ll endeavour to add more pools as I can.

If any miners need more information than appears in the list, post here. If there are any mistakes, pool ops please post or pm me.

Thank you to Meni Rosenfeld, whose Pool summary appears in the post below the current pools list.
