- pool must be active and listed on WhereToMine - pool fee and payment scheme must be public on pool website - pool must have support line or person of contact - pool must have social media presence (ex: Facebook, Twitter, Reddit, Discord, etc...) - have an API for 3rd party use cases - the pool must make a one time 50$ donation to WhereToMine in either Bitcoin, Ethereum or Litecoin
Why must a pool make a 50$ donation in order to be verified?
- in the past we've offered verified status without donations to various pools, most of whom are defunct at this point - our goal is to let miners know that verified pools are trustworthy, and most of all, stable - donations will help with the continued development of WhereToMine - part of the donations will be used to give back to the community via giveaways or other forms of contests
What are the advantages of being Verified?
- all verified pools will be seen at the top of the list on their respective coin page - the verified ticker lets miners know that the pool is trustworthy and stable - verified pools gain spot on featured pools on main page of WhereToMine - verified pools can have logo next to their name (logo must be provided by pool operators) - verified pools have 7 days of sponsored pool Ad Spot
