Has anyone made money with nicehash?
If yes, what is the best GPU/CPU set up for a newbie?


  • Coinplug I just started with NiceHash and although I haven't actually got to the minimum payout I am making money each day according to the statistics. This is just a test for me with an Intel Celeron processor, 2Gb RAM and a GTX 1070 with 8Gb RAM. I'm getting almost 460 Sols/s with Equihash.

    I've been using NiceHash for about 3 weeks now and made the minimum payout (0.01 BTC) after about 14 days with my 390X gpu. However, I made the mistake of using one of NiceHash's recommended sites for a wallet ( While they do have my 0.01 BTC they do not allow selling/transfers to Canada so it is stuck there until I figure out how to get it released. I should have researched this more but i'm still new to this mining game so i'm working through my growing pains.

    I'm changing it to a Canadian wallet as we speak. I have heard NiceHash is extremely easy to start up and that part is true. Through more research, however, I am finding you can earn more with different mining tools. Gonna keep using NiceHash for a while though while I get a dedicated rig going over the next few months.
  • Using just one 390x GPU? Thats not bad for 14days.
    I also have money with can not be transfer or sold in CAD dollar apparently, stuck with coinbase. I've requested them to allow a usd transfer or sale of the account. Let me know if you find a method for Canadian customers with funds at coinbase.
  • Take care before to start with Nicehash since their profitability calculator gives an average on the last month.
    When the global hashing rate increases quickly the profitability drops day after day and the number given by Nicehash is sometimes obsolete. It's presently the case with the Antminer D3.
  • Nicehash is still working well for me. I honestly don't look at the profitability much, just the daily bitcoin amount generated - and that seems to be consistent. I've been spending more time managing my crypto's on an Exchange than generating them because frankly I don't generate much.

    I decided to buy an Antminer S9 2 days ago. The seller recommended to be to use Antpool.
    He actually made the settings for me. It's far from user friendly for a newbee.
    I don't know if running an ASIC on Nicehash is a good idea.
    It's hard for me up to now to compare the options since it's quite technical and I don't understand enough the little details.
    The previous comment was based on what I discovered when I was looking to buy a D3.
    The profitability calculated by Nicehash was about 3 times the number on Whattomine and was BS.
    This does not mean that it is not a good place to mine.

    @Serge55 once you get settled in Antpool I think it would be great to start a discussion on that and share what you learnt :)
