MinerGate is an international multi-currency mining pool. Currently, it supports 10 currencies (including Monero, Ethereum, Litecoin, Zcash, and others). The pool has an intuitive GUI which helps newcomers to join mining. MinerGate has wide functionality letting users utilize diverse mining clients and devices. Merged mining is an original innovation brought by the MinerGate team. MinerGate has a benchmark tool that allows its users to estimate her/his potential profit. "Smart mining" option allows to mine the most profitable available currency automatically. The pool fees vary from 1 to 1.5 depending on the reward system (PPS or PPLNS). In the past, MinerGate used to provide cloud mining service and offered a mobile miner. Both features were later rejected by the company.
The pool helps to minine a big range of the coins for all tastes. I used to earn some XML. I'm satisfied.
The pool have got a transparent reward system, I mean you can't check any operations, all the data is open and I didn't see any hidden fees or something like that. You are free to mine without any scum platform move.
