Best Bitcoin Mining 2017

The Best Bitcoin Mining Sites 2017

By: Shitlister

When it comes to Bitcoin, mining plays a big part. If you don’t know what mining is, you probably haven’t been dealing with Bitcoins for very long and should probably try to have a read up on the subject sometime soon! Mining is vital when it comes to Bitcoins, but how do you know which sites are the best? Easy; we’ve compiled the best into a list for you to help you out!

 

Antpool

Antpool is a Bitcoin Mining site with a pool based in China. It mines over 18% of all blocks, which is quite a high figure to boast about. The mine and pool are looked after by BitMain.

 

BTCC

Another Bitcoin mine with a pool based in China is BTCC. It is actually the third biggest exchange in the whole of China and manages to mine almost 12% of all blocks.

 

DiscusFish/F2Pool

Mining almost 20% of blocks in the last six months alone, DiscusFish, sometimes referred to by Bitcoin users as F2Pool, is the largest Bitcoin Exchange in China.

 

BitFury Pool

Not only is BitFury Pool a successful mining site, mining 13% of Bitcoins in Georgia, it is also the largest manufacturer of Bitcoin hardware, including Bitcoin Chips.

 

Slush

Slush is a unique mining site because it is the original mining site; the first ever mining site. Nowadays it only mines around 5% of blocks, but it’s still there at the top.

 

21 Inc.

Based in California, 21 Inc. doesn’t just mine 4% of the world’s Bitcoins. It also sells small quantities of low powered Bitcoin miners, runs a significant amount of its own Bitcoin miners and generates a lot of hash power too.

 

KnCMiner

Located in Stockholm, Sweden, KnCMiner is a Bitcoin mining manufacturer. However, unlike most of the sites on this list, KnCMiner is not actually a pool. The 6% of blocks they currently mine are all done so from their own warehouse.

 

BW Pool

Relatively new to the Bitcoin mining scene, BW Pool was founded in 2014. Since then it’s gone on to mine approximately 8% of the blocks.

 

GHASH.IO

GHASH.IO actually used to be the largest mining site in the world. However, once it reached the ability to mine 50% of all blocks, some scaremongering caused users to believe that at 51% there would be a mass hacking scam, and so a lot of people stopped using it, causing the percentage to drop.

 

Eligius

Eligius might have an odd sounding name, and it might only mine 3% of blocks, but you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover. Eligius is actually one of the first ever Bitcoin mining sites and still works perfectly well.
