The Bitminter mining pool is operated by the Norwegian company Aesir Financial AS which is wholly owned by Geir Harald Hansen.
Bitminter began as an idea for a more user-friendly graphical bitcoin mining client. At the time mining software used a command line interface and most people don't even know what that is. Geir began work on this in March 2011 but later decided to build a complete mining pool.
Bitminter went live 26 June 2011.
The only person who represents Bitminter and Aesir Financial is Geir Harald Hansen. For inquiries regarding Bitminter, write to firstname.lastname@example.org
