Multipool or slushpool, anyone?

I use these two pools but when I set them up using the SHA256 mine, although the hash rate keeps being updated, the pool doesn't recognize macminer as an active worker. No earnings were shown. Why?

  • At those hash rates the difficulty is too high too solve any shares. To mine Bitcoin you need to be using an ASIC these days.

    I tried nicehash on my another laptop, using even just the CPU. It was very slow but progressing. For this, I even didn't see my worker as active.

  • Nicehash runs a very different type of pool software to most others, I'm guessing it can provide far lower difficulty shares - it's good to know there's still somewhere you can get away mining these algorithms on standard hardware! However most pools aren't so accommodating to low hash rates.
