Sign up and point your ASIC machines to mint.bitminter.com:3333 with your user name and a dummy (x or 123) password. Or use a specific region:

  • us1.bitminter.com:3333 (United States)
  • us2.bitminter.com:3333 (United States)
  • eu1.bitminter.com:3333 (Europe)

A closer server can slightly reduce stale (rejected) work. A reject ratio around 0.10% is normal. Check live stats to see your reject ratio in the current shift.

If you have firewall issues try port 443 instead of 3333.

New users can mine with just the user name. That's because you start out with a worker that has the default setting enabled. To use a specific worker mine with your user name, an underscore, then a worker name, e.g. DrHaribo_1. There is no password check. You can put X or 123 as password.

What is BitMinter?

Bitminter is a bitcoin mining pool that aims to make it easy for anyone to make bitcoins. Bitminter is one of the oldest pools. Since we opened in 2011 over 375 000 people have registered accounts with us. We hope that you will join us too!

What do I need?

ASICs took over in 2013. Mining one bitcoin with just a PC now takes millions of years. You'll want a 1 TH/s or faster ASIC machine to start a small mining-at-home operation. Popular now are Antminer S-series from Bitmain. The Bitcoin wiki has a comparison of ASIC hardware. Used ASICs are available at ebay and similar places.

Reward System

Your work is recorded in shifts. When we create a new block you get a share of the income proportional to how much of the work in the last 10 completed shifts is yours. This reward system is known as PPLNS with shifts. 99% of the mining income (including transaction fee income) is paid out to users. Donations are optional and will unlock various perks.
