Frequently asked questions & answers for potential customers
What is a Worker?
Worker is a term utilized by third-party mining pools and Stratumsphere to identify 1 single crypto-currency mining rig or mining equipment. 1 Antminer S9 = 1 Worker 12x GPU Miner = 1 Worker CPU Miner = 1 Worker The term Worker is utilized to simplify billing and management of connected assets on Stratumsphere.
Where does the mining reward go?
||| Stratumsphere will never (ever) hold, touch, or deal with any of your or your end-user's crypto-currency! You and/or your end-user's wallet or mining pool account is input into the system by you or your team and the reward goes directly from the third-party mining pool to that account and/or wallet. This practice provides transparency and legitimacy within the crypto mining industry. We do not believe in keeping or holding your end-user's mining reward.
Does your system take a cut or percentage of the hashrate?
||| NO! Never (ever) will Stratumsphere cut or degrade your worker's hashrate. Every share that comes into the system goes out to your designated mining pool.
Do you provide or sell workers (mining rigs)?
Stratumsphere is a Business-to-Business tool intended for customers that already possess workers (mining rigs) that are ready to connect to the service. Customers can utilize the service to lease their own mining hardware to their end-users. Stratumsphere itself does not provide this mining hardware. If you are interested in acquiring mining hardware to connect to Stratumsphere, please checkout BlockGen. BlockGen Corporation develops, owns, and operates Strat
Is your service white-label?
Absolutely! Your end-users never interact with Stratumsphere, it is solely intended for use by you the mining provider. The hashrate simply appears on your end-user's third-party mining pool of choice.
Do Workers sit idle when not rented?
||| NO! When workers are not allocated to rentals, they'll mine to your personal mining pool set by you. Visual Example
Can I segregate my workers per facility, row, rack etc ?
Absolutely! We actually encourage our customers to create multiple HASH Schedulers based upon their needs. We charge by the worker, not scheduler. Create 10 schedulers for your 100 workers or 1 scheduler for your 100 workers. You could also base it by your type of customer(s). Have a customer that is very proactive about their hashrate and contacts you constantly? Segregate them on a HASH Scheduler with tighter tolerances then the rest of your customers.
Will this work with my hardware management software?
Yes We embrace hardware monitoring systems and think they are great for local management within your facility. Simply connect your equipment to Stratumsphere as if it was a standard mining pool. Keep in mind that you need to input only a worker name, and not your wallet address as Stratumsphere handles that when you add a new scheduler.
