We're proud to finally document our WAMP API, which allows users to obtain live statistics about the status of the pool. In the coming days, we also plan to provide methods that provide insight into users' workers and balances.
The first methods are now available at https://prohashing.com/help.html#api-wamp.
For the first time, these methods make it possible for a user to write a "NiceHash bot." Since NiceHash provides an API with all the necessary properties and methods, a bot can be written to obtain pricing at NiceHash, compare it to profits provided by the WAMP API here, and if profit here is greater, then buy lots of hashrate from NiceHash and direct it here.
If programmed conservatively, this bot should never be at risk of losing money. During times of high profitability, profits here often soar to 33% above NiceHash. That should never happen, because a bot like this can drive a significant portion of NiceHash's hashrate here during those times up to the point that NiceHash's rate equalizes.
Is anyone interested in writing this bot? We aren't asking for any cut of the profits that you earn; we just want someone to write it and run it to make themselves money so that we can take the pool fees. GenTarkin seems to have the expertise to make a lot of profit by doing this.
Just wanted to give you an update that I finally finished my bot tonight and have started it up. So you should start seeing more hashrate from me now!
Remember to try "g=off" if you have problems with NiceHash penalties. That argument shouldn't be used by most people because it loses money, but for NiceHash, the losses of merge mining often are offset by lower penalties.
