HashFlare is a popular cloud mining platform launched in 2015. It is praised for its user-friendly interface making it possible to earn crypto for people unfamiliar with the world of cryptocurrencies . There are five currencies that can be "mined" on HashFlare: Bitcoin (BTC), Ethereum (ETH), Litecoin (LTC), Dash (DASH), and Zcash (ZEC). The minimum deposit possible is only $1.50, so literally anyone can try and see what cloud mining is. Deposits and withdrawals are possible via Bitcoin, WebMoney, Visa, MasterCard or wire. Users are free to choose the pool they like. The contracts have no expiration date (although you can opt to buy a one year contract). On the other hand, In 2018 there were some complaints of users whose contracts were closed too fast. There's no information about the rigs used by the company.
I did some research and decided to try it. It's got some advantages. The high hash rate, good community and Intuitive interface. I got some questions, but the community helped to understand how it works, in general, it's quite reliable pool.
