What is Nicehash?

Cruxpool is fully compatible with NiceHash, the largest open marketplace specialized in crypto mining. If you do not want to invest in hardware in order to mine, or if you’re not sure yet, this is maybe a good starting point. Indeed, you might first want to try it out and begin with renting the computing power of other miners.

On NiceHash, Buyers and Sellers meet and make transactions. Biggest upside to this system, is that you don’t need any technical skills, you simply log in, make your order, enter the pool’s logs and there you go.

Below, a chart that represents the whole process.
