Welcome to Coinotron, first multicoin mining pool.
Solo mining is practically impossible. Only big miners with dozens of ASIC/GPU cards have a chance of generating block in a single day. Average miner wait months to find a block. Only reasonable alternative is to work together with other miners. We have created Coinotron.com to support that joint effort. We invite you to join Coinotron.
Rules are simple:
For each block generated in our pool we get certain amount of coins. Next we split these coins between miners proportionally to amount of work delivered using various methods of reward distribution: PPS, RBPPS, PPLNS.
How can you join us?
