Announcing new combined topic for F@H. Official LTT F@H FAQ & Guide.

Wish LTT had warned us about NiceHash fine print

You need to mine 50eur worth of btc minimum to withdraw, seems like a scam to me.
Is there any other service that actually lets you use your money?

There's a similar limit on many pools I know

 

It doesn't make sense to withdraw little amount of money like that anyways, the current bitcoin transaction fee is high, so if you transfer, say, $50, the fees could be 10% of the transaction

 

And you can withdraw all your BTC once you reach the limit, unlike banks that keeps a few dollars in it for some reason

 

And, I don't think LTT should've been liable to inform you of such a thing anyways, you should've read it carefully

My PCs: Desky | Beddie | Miney | Benchie

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment)

Spoiler

none atm

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

Spoiler

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

Wish it was communicated more clearly, the marketing material for NiceHash and LTT's sort of pitch implied heavily that it was super beginner friendly and convenient to use, by the time i mine to withdraw BTC could crash in value.

Why would they sit there and read the fine print of every service to you? That is absolutely your job.

What if anthony read it with asmr?

Onlyfans idea right there

Nicehash has exchange, change it to USDT if you're that scared, USDT is relatively stable

 

There's a limit on that too and I'm not sure how much but it should be lower

 

Alternatively you can mine to an external wallet with higher fee of 5% instead of 2%(?)

That's up to you to decide

I read on NiceHash website "Alternatively, you can use some other Bitcoin wallet address but this feature is deprecated and is not actively supported anymore." 
So does that mean you cant?
Also can you guys recommend any other mining pool that is more transparent?

Ah I see, yeah I don't think I saw the option to key in external address anymore, might've still be viable but idk

Last time I heard miningpoolhub is great, but you need to do some research to use it as it's not as easy as nicehash, which I don't think it's suitable for you if you had to ask something so trivial and aren't comfortable reading fine prints

 

The same withdrawal limit applies there as well

There's a minimum of 0.01 ETH for biweekly payouts.

Reading the fine print for these details is up to you. Anyway, that message only means mining to an external wallet is deprecated.

It is beginner friendly. Download, hit start and you're off to the races. Yes it might crash anytime, it also may not. It could also explode further and be worth double next month. If this volatility scares you, then you are overinvested or maybe crypto is not for you.

 

Do you know that withdrawing BTC does not mean withdrawing cash? It means you transfer the BTC from the NiceHash internal wallet to another BTC wallet. Every exchange has some minimum amount they allow you and an amount they charge. The reason for a minimum amount is partly because it's otherwise not worth it to transfer. You can't transfer €1 if your transaction fees are €5 and it's not really worth it to transfer €10 and lose 50% of that either.

 

If you want cash you'll have to trade the BTC for fiat (EUR, USD, whatever) on an exchange and withdraw that to a bank account or paypal or something.

You are correct. Maybe my memory is bad but this may have been changed in the last months; they have updated their payout policy multiple times.

When you go to withdraw, it clearly states a minimum required for a withdrawal.  Ive been doing this about a week and am just over half way to the min(using a 5600xt and my laptop 1650ti lol)  So I guess it depends on what hardware you are able to use.

 

It was super easy to start running.  The only issues I had were on the laptop but that was user error haha.
