Bitcoin Mining with Zero Fee: BTC.com Joins Mining Pool Race
Despite suggestions that Bitcoin mining pools are not as profitable as they used to be, the new open-source platform by China’s website for Bitcoin block statistics seems to have found a place on the list of the top ten mining pools.
According to the pool distribution statistics provided by Blocktrail as at the time of writing, BTC.com launched the new platform about two weeks ago and is now at the tenth spot on the list of pools covering 2.40% of the market share, based on the past week’s record.
In a chat with CoinTelegraph, Bitmain’s Nishant Sharma says the pool has been launched now despite the halving having cut the block rewards in half because the mining community remains strong and is still growing.
