        id like to see asic support as well please

        ASIC mining will always be available and other pools are using it. if we miss a registration because another pool registered the blockchain before we do then we loose out on that work. so yes, I would like to see asic support.

        Please do not add this. ASIC Mining is killing bitcoin.

        can you support the asic block erupterfor sha ?

      • AdminAlex (Founder, GroupFabric) commented  · 

        Monero (CryptoNight) hashes require ~256x more computation than Scrypt hashes. Also the underlying currencies are different, with different issuance cycles (Scrypt currencies tend to issue 25 per block every 2.5 minutes, while Monero issues 5 per block every 2 minutes). Monero is more rare and harder to mine.

        Contrast with SHA-256d in Bitcoin, which is ~2048x EASIER to mine than Scrypt, but is worth significantly less due to it being mine-able with ASICs.

        @Alex pls explain why 150 kilohashes earn less than 100 hashes if you do in the end mine for monero.

        The problem with ASICs is they are a moving target - each ASIC uses a different interface and each model obsoletes the last version. If you have a limited number of engineering hours you can spend, you're going to work on the things that help the most number of users first.

        An explicit goal of ours is to enable people to mine without needing external investment, and there are a lot of things we can do to boost existing PC profitability still before ASICs (Ethash, CrytoNight, Xbox, Android, iOS support, etc.).

        Also - most ASICs have dedicated mining software, so it's not an under-served market. Generally once folks are looking to explicitly spend money on hardware, they also invest in the specialized software for their hardware.

        yes please, add ASIC support. Its odd that the Founder of groupfabric shared this very idea 4.5 years ago and is still commenting only 2 months ago yet it still hasn't been implemented.. all those little USB sticks sitting around and collecting dust could go to some use... Love the app btw, just wish there was a way to hash higher... would love to be able to connect my 2pac. Please develop it and take a small percentage of the mining on top of your ad revenue to pay for it. Love the app BTW- great, easy, idiot proof interface.

        I love this site,I let it run on an extra computer and know I won't make any money. I do have some extra 2pacs and would love to see support for these on this site.

      • Josh Harris commented  · 

        This pool is so useless! I will cease mining with this app as soon as I get my payout tomorrow(1-8-18) Too slow, no asic support, WASTED ELECTRIC. Now, you are going to increase minimum payout 400%........

        Many post comment but the admin still thinking about add asic

      • Gmiki commented  · 

        Please add USB ASIC mining support!

      • Anonymous commented  · 

        it would kinda be nice that when you get 5,000 satoshis that it would automaticly go to your wallet yes i know there will be inbetween time but lots of times i see no activity or reduced hash rate bad and when you finally get the 5'000 to be told you got to wait yet again for a payout date i run this 24/7 minus the constant interupts its just a little frustrating when you want to reinvest those earnings or to pay the basic up cost of being online running this ect.. well um yea

        still no Coin took me MONTHS of Mining to make 50 Bit Coins Ill stop using it and go use BFG miner or PeonMiner on my RPB+ with a Lot of ASIC miners and can make 10BC Per Hour. with that I can quit my Relate job at Wally World. GUys people running a GPU system are now few and Far between now. Respectfully request Block Erupter support.

      • Jay commented  · 

        I agree with Chris's comment. Why not add support for USB miner like GekkoScience? I have 10 Radeon video cards that makes atleast $25 a day mining Ethereum.
        I pointed all 10 of them at this and was only going to see 35 cents a day.
        Cause I can only manage 1.8MH/s. But we could really make some profit if we could get up to the GH/s with a GekkoScience.

        Thanks much!

      • chris commented  · 

        Having an Advanced menu that can list all your GPUs, CPUs, USB sticks would be user friendly.

        Having support for USB Miners, such as the Rev 2 GekkoScience 2-Pac Compac USB Stick Bitcoin Miner provides 15 gh / sec. while a GPU is getting kh / sec or Mh / sec.
        It is easy to just plug 2 or 3 2-Pacs in a PC and provide 30 to 45 gh / sec to the network.
        As a service, it improves your hash rate significantly.

        Well I guess that Mining BTC is going to get useless in this difficulty, why not pay the people directly for running ads on their machine. Could be more profit for both.
