2CryptoCalc mining calculator provides up-to-date information about hashrates of different graphics cards for mining. New enhanced miners are launched all the time, and there are more and more ways to boost GPU performance. It is important to consider this in order to calculate mining profitability correctly.
Modern mining calculators don't need you to know your hardware hashrate for every algorithm. Just indicate how many graphics cards of a certain model you have, and the calculator will give you the result. Compared to other calculators, 2CryptoCalc lets you know not only mining profitability, but also which of your graphics cards can't mine certain crypto algorithms.
It is a standard feature available in all mining calculators. If you know your mining hashrate for a certain algorithm, you can get an estimate of mining profitability. All calculators give you just an estimate. The real profitability depends on the pool luck, network difficulty and other factors.
2CryptoCalc calculates real-time potential profitability from renting hashing power on Nicehash. This feature is especially useful for solo pool miners that monitor changes in cryptocurrency network difficulty and cryptocurrency prices, in order to know when is the right moment to connect to the pool with their own or rented mining rigs.
Unlike other mining calculators, 2CryptoCalc calculates mining profitability not only for pool mining, but also for solo mining. In regular pools you mine together with other miners and share the reward for found blocks. In solo mode you mine independently. If you find a crypto block, you will get the whole block reward. 2CryptoCalc calculates how many blocks you can find in a day or in a certain period of time.
2CryptoCalc gives information about pools that let you mine a chosen cryptocurrency. All the data, including the number of miners in the pool and the pool hashrate, are updated in real time.
2CryptoCalc calculator and 2Miners pool provide their users with practical video guides on how to set up mining for most cryptocurrencies. Videos explain step by step how to create a cryptocurrency wallet, as well as how to set up and start mining. All videos have subtitles in different languages.
The calculator always provides important cryptocurrency data, such as network hashrate and network difficulty.
2CryptoCalc database stores information about the performance of all graphics cards for different mining algorithms. Unlike other calculators, 2CryptoCalc updates its database regularly. Moreover, miners all over the world are contributing too. In order to update the database, you need to have a Github account.
2CryptoCalc displays network difficulty charts for all cryptocurrencies on their respective pages. Network difficulty is a fundamental value for every cryptocurrency. When the network hashrate increases, the network difficulty increases as well, and vice versa. Here is why. Average block find time of every cryptocurrency network is a fixed value, so the network has to adjust its difficulty in order to keep block time within the limits established by the developers.
2CryptoCalc displays network hashrate charts for all cryptocurrencies on their respective pages. Network hashrate shows the overall computing power of the hardware that is mining the given cryptocurrency worldwide right now.
