List of mining pools for Monero: Minexmr, nanopool, supportxmr, and others

12

With the explosive popularity of Monero over the past year, a myriad of different mining pools have charged into the scene. Unfortunately, navigating this jungle of pools has become increasingly difficult. Not to worry, we’ve got you covered! All of these pools have received positive mentions and have been vouched for by many enthusiastic members of the mining community. That being said, we take no responsibility for any fraudulent activity by these pools. If they decide to run with your money, that’s on them.

In our Monero mining guide, we’ve used the monerohash.com pool. Monerohash takes relatively low fees, some of which is actually donated to the Monero Core development team. They’re also currently classified as a smaller mining pool (has less than 3% of the overall network hash rate), so by mining with them, you’ll be contributing to the decentralized nature of the network. Within the Monero community, they have a solid reputation.

Here’s the full list of pools:

Although there are definitely pools out there that we are not aware of, these are by far the most trusted and popular ones. If there’s a pool you’d like to be added to this list, leave a comment below.

Consider joining a small mining pool, as to not allow one mining pool to rule the network.  For if one pool were to gain over 51% of the hash rate, as has happened with multiple cryptocurrencies in the past, they have the ability to force the network to migrate over to a new chain while double-spending in the process.

If you have yet to set up your Monero miner or are having difficulty doing so, be sure to refer to our Monero mining guide. And if you need help putting together a hardware GPU rig, check out our guide for that, too (GPU mining rigs are usually about the same across the board).

    Greetings,

    I have set up a new XMR Pool for testing. I am trying to get miners to connect to work
    out any kinks. Why start another XMR
    pool when there are so many others out there?
    Well, this pool is 100% powered by solar power. That means that you can mine on this pool and have peace of mind in knowing that you are leaving less of a carbon footprint
    than when you mine on others.

    I need testers to see how performing and how the payouts are
    performing.

    Please turn a miner over to 104.2.65.18:3333 (or 5555,
    7777).

    Let me know if there is any difficulty in connecting. If so, please report back the error that the
    miner is giving you and what software you are using.

    The front-end is located at http://green-pools.com
    but you have to mine via the IP until I finish tweaking everything.

    Please take a moment out to test this node so that we can
    expand the Monero network even further!!!!
