Added competitor comparison to homepage

Post by Steve Sokolowski » Thu Sep 05, 2019 7:54 am

I'm pleased to announce that we added a comparison to competitors to the homepage. The comparison is next to the "% of anchor" comparisons.

This new column presents how much more you can earn at Prohashing compared to mining with the highest-earning competitor for that algorithm. So far, the highest earning competitor appears to be Nicehash. The data for these competitors is taken from their own APIs and compared to our APIs, after fees (but not including the competitor's withdrawal fees, so if any exist, our advantage will be greater.)

As you can see, for the big three algorithms (SHA-256, scrypt, and X11,) Prohashing outperforms Nicehash, which is in line with real-world testing I conducted with Antminer products two months ago.

We will be adding more competitors over the coming month or two so that all of the algorithms has comparison data.

Is that a joke ? nicehash rates are allways 20% or more profitiable than prohashing so dont lie people

That may be correct for some algorithms, but not for the algorithms listed. The data is being obtained from Nicehash's own API, so that's what they're reporting themselves. Testing with an actual S7 also backed up the profitability difference with actual mining - you can look at the "News" section for the results of those tests.

We don't list algorithms in that column where we have no data, or where Nicehash reports itself as being more profitable. Therefore, if the box is empty, it's possible that Nicehash earns more for that algorithm.

What data are you using that shows that the numbers are incorrect? If you can provide us with the way you configured your miners and how you mined at each pool, I'll investigate the results further.
