"Simple software for mining"

What do you like best?

It has a super simple GUI. Just download from the main page and register an account can exploit the capacity of the team.

Since the year that I have been using it, they have released few updates, but each of them adapts to the changing rhythm of cryptocurrencies.

It allows me to integrate with an ASICs team and many models of GPUs

This software supports several cryptocurrencies and different mining pools

It has application for Android, which is my case, to continue mining with my mobile device. And all together in the same program. It is very fascinating

What do you dislike?

most of the antivirus detect it as "riskware", since it can enter the system without the user's permission and use the resources of the computer to mine.

In summary:

decrease in computer performance;

system slowdowns;

inability to open or execute a particular program;

the appearance in the Task Manager of processes that use a large amount of CPU.

But if I want mine, I am aware that these are the consequences.

Recommendations to others considering the product

See what performance your team gives in each of the algorithms, try the calculator to see how profitable it is what you are doing.

Read all the sections, you will learn and understand a lot, almost everything is there, there is really very little information that you will not find, go through the Minergate forums and even have a Chat where you can talk with other members of the community.

You have to know what hardware you have, you have to start knowing each component involved in the mining process. Mine is a matter of patience, effort and investment.

I hope you find these tips and many successes useful...

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I use this program personally and not for corporate use; therefore, I have not solved any problem in particular, it is only by hobbys the use I give it. The obtained gains have been few because the capacity of my computer is little but if I love this program very much

"Very easy to use, not great at payouts"

What do you like best?

This is by far the simplest mining software to use. Its great for someone just starting to learn about mining that does not have the technical experience to setup your own mining software. The GUI is easy to use and provides great data on your progress to date. Great for CPU mining.

What do you dislike?

They are not great about payouts, they don't really pay out what your owed and hold hostage some of your earnings until you confirm the next block. This means you are never paid entirely what they owe you and you will always have some residual balance stuck in their system. Not the best for GPU mining.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If your serious about mining consider compiling your own miner from source.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Allows you to monetize spare CPU cycles for your computer or graphics card. Great if you have low cost electricity.

What Cryptocurrency Mining solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Mining cryptocurrencies easily."

What do you like best?

The program is downloaded quickly without major complications, you can choose the cryptocurrency you want to mine or do it several at a time (although the number of options depends on the printer) and you can use several computers to get better results. In addition you can also mine from the mobile or from the cloud.

What do you dislike?

Expectations should not be very high, one sometimes feels that mine and mine and the results are not as expected, but in the end it is a difficulty present in many programs or pages of mining because this is not immediate, you must have proof .

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to install program, easy to use and with many cryptocurrency options to mine.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The platform has been running for many years so it is quite reliable. There are many cryptocurrency options and you can, through your page, perform a calculation of what you can get in days, months or years.

"Solid entry into Mining"

What do you like best?

I love the ease of use of this product. This was my first step into crypto mining and it couldnt have been easier. With this product i was up and running in minutes versus hours spent with other mining software. With Minergate i was able to setup and account and install the software on several devices and start learning about crypto mining.

What do you dislike?

The only issue i have had is withdrawal. This isn't very clear and there don't seem to be many options.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With this product you are able to dip your toe into the Mining pool with ease. The benefits of being able to jump right in out weight the days you can spend with other software.

"Mina seguro con Minergate"

What do you like best?

Su descarga e instalación son bastante sencillas.

Su interfaz grafica es muy entendible y basica, agradable a simple a vista.

Puedo seleccionar cada una de las criptomonedas sobre las cuales deseo trabajar y seleccionar cuantos nucleos de mi equipo quiero que trabajen sobre esa moneda, inmediatamente el software te arroja cuantos GHZ por segunso estan trabajando sobre las criptomonedas seleccionadas.

Puedo minar con mi procesador y tarjeta grafica a la vez, e incluso si solo quiero que trabaje mi tarjeta grafica puedo hacerlo.

E utilizado su aplicación para dispositivos Android y la verdad es que es muy satisfactorio, ya que tambien puedo utilizar los recursos de mi movil para trabajar sobre la criptomoneda que yo desee.

What do you dislike?

E tenido problemas con multiples antivirus para proceder con la instalación del software ya que lo detecta como software malicioso.

En la instalación no te solicita permisos para utilizar los recursos de tu dispositivo.

El soporte a usuario tarda mucho en responder, mas de una semana.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Existe una gran comunidad que utiliza minergate, incluso cuando instaladas el software el te recomienda cual de la gran cantidad de criptomonedas que existen hoy en día es la mas optima para minar con tu dispositivo.

Instruyase en los foros, escuche la opinión y experiencia de los demas usuarios que utilizan minergate.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

El uso de este software ha sido netamente personal y no profesional, poco a poco me e estado sumergiendo en el mundo de la criptomonedas y con minergate e dado un gran paso para entender como funciona este mundo.

"Easy option for desktop mining "

What do you like best?

I once mined some altcoins with the Minergate software back in 2015. St the time I was only mining with my Asus Zenbook laptop and I only mined for about a week before I lost interest. However fast forward to 2017 and that week worth of mining altcoins that I had forgotten about ended up being valued at over $900. I was super stoked. Until I found out that I had used the same credentials including same password that I used for my Yahoo email account which was breached numerous times due to their incompetency.

What do you dislike?

The thing I dislike the most was the lack of security options back in 2015 when I was actively using my account. It’s not really a knock to them though even though my account was accessed and drained over $900 in mined coins. It was actually Yahoo whom was responsible for the handing out my credentials to criminals and also my own fault for reusing the same email and password on more than one account. It was an expensive lesson and I wish maybe they had mandated some stricter security measures but 2015 was a much different time than today.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Well I was able to mine some alt-coins in a duration of about 1 week which a couple years later were valued at 900 USD although I don’t think I really solved many “business problems” necessarily. I learned a lesson about Yahoo and their recklessness with regards to their users data. Won’t make that mistake again.

"Super easy"

What do you like best?

I love how easy it is to use this software. This product got me into mining. This was the first software I setup when getting into mining and it was very easy. I also love the dashboard. Once your devices are online you can easily check you progress from anywhere.

What do you dislike?

I don't really have any complaints. This is a great product to get you started.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This product could not be easier to use. Just setup the account and install the software. You can also point other software to this and watch the status of it as well.

"Potente sistema de mineria en la nube"

What do you like best?

Lo mejor que tiene minergate es la facilidad para minar desde la nube, ya que no requieres hacer una inversion de hardware para poder iniciar en el mundo de la mineria.

Minergate te ofrece servicios de mineria en la nube con diferentes precios, adicional cuente con una calculadora que funciona para saber el aproximado de tu recompensa segun el equipo virtual que deseas contratar.

Te permite minar varios tipos de moneda, por lo que no debes depender de una sola y puedes alquilar varios equipos para minar diferentes monedas al mismo tiempo.

Puedes generar mas dinero si invitas a tus amigos y referidos.

Adicionalmente puedes minar desde cualquier computador o smartphone.

What do you dislike?

El costo es un poco elevado por lo cual la recompensa es baja.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Vas a tener un gran ahorro de energía ya que el servicio esta alojado en la nube, así que es preferible que busques información sobre servicios en la nube para que sepas su relación costo beneficio.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

No se ha requerido comprar hardware costoso para iniciar en la mineria.

"Super Easy, low payout. hefty fees"

What do you like best?

The set up was super easy and it was helpful for picking out the most valuable coin to be mining.

What do you dislike?

The fees seemed to be really steep on top of the fact that the earnings were really slow. Though that is just the current state of mining

Recommendations to others considering the product

Likely are not going to mine a large sum of money without significant upfront investment. It is unlikely, unless cryptocurrency prices suddenly jump, that you will earn enough to pay of the equipment used for the mining. I would only run it on equipment that you are already using for other purposes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Trying out mining on my PC. Nice to earn a few cents while doing my normal computer usage.
