Mining Pool

    Categories: Blockchain

    A collection of miners who join forces to aggregate their hashing power and therefore improve their chances of mining a new block and receiving block rewards (which are subsequently distributed among the constituents of the pool). An example of a mining pool is BTCC, which now controls a significant portion of the Bitcoin’s network’s hashing power.
