Bitcoin Cloud Mining

The smart alternative of solo (hardware) mining

Bitcoin Cloud Mining Overview

Cloud Mining is a way to mine bitcoin (or different cryptocurrencies) without the need of owning a miner (or mining hardware). Simply said, you buy yourself some shares of mining power – like a mining pool – and profit together with the pool. This means that you only need a contract with someone who offers Cloud Mining Services and a bitcoin wallet (check out or bitcoin wallet guide!).

Most important indicators

The most important indicators in our opinion are: Daily return on investment (%) and Days to ROI. Both can be viewed in our weekly updated ranking tables above.

BTC Cloud Mining Reviews

Make sure to check out our reviews before you invest in new hash power. Also, don’t hesitate to share proactive your own experience with the crypto community.


Types of Bitcoin Cloud Mining

There are two forms of cloud mining:

  • Hosted Mining – You send your mining machine to a Firm, which provides electricity, cooling and configurations. It is also possible, that you lease yourself a mining machine.
  • Buying Hashing Power – The most popular method of cloud mining – You buy an amount of hashing power (Hash Rate). Which means, that you don’t need to own a physical or virtual mining machine (computer).
  • The pros of the one are the cons of the other and vice verse.

Hosted Mining vs. Buying Hashing Power

Now let us analyze both the Hosted Mining and the Buying Hashing Power types of Bitcoin cloud mining. Starting with the pros of hosted mining:

  • Less Scammy – if you decide to get an hosted bitcoin mining contract, than you need to check if the provider is a registered venture. If this is the case, you have high certainly, that you wont get scammed. Here is a list of hashing power cloud mining scam or terminated contracts.

And now the cons of the hosted mining:

  • Higher investment and monthly cost – you not only buy the mining machine but need to calculate your costs of maintaining it, which vary depending on the energy use of the Bitcoin miner. Harder to Monitor – the success can be monitored only partly. Check out our tables above (so called monitor tables) to see the most profitable ones out there!

The pros of the Hosted Mining are the cons of the Buying-Hashing-Power model and vice verse.

Hint 2: There different types of currencies getting mint. For example, if you are interested into getting Ether, then you should check our Ethereum Cloud Mining page.

Terminated Cloud Mining Contracts

Terminated Cloud Mining Contracts resemble investments, that were closed by the operating website stating that they are not profitable anymore and thus, need to stop the daily %-payout of their program. It’s impossible to tell, if this is true, or it has been the plan from the contract launch.

Those tables are here to showcase that there are many investor traps, and that one should always be very careful about investing in such websites, since not all are “real” and mining coins – but many just mirror real Bitcoin or Ethereum cloud mining.
