Solo vs Pool

Check out the Solo vs Pool article to learn more about the difference between Solo and Pool mining.

Pool Diversity

Not everybody should use the same pool.
If a pool dominates (controls at least 51% of all the mining power), it means that they have full control over the blockchain and can therefore cheat the system by modifying some of the values (essentially creating, stealing, or removing money). As a result, pool diversity is very important and people should try to find the best pool or independent ones, to solidify the network.

List of Pools

You can find list of most available pools at Garlicoin Mining Pools.
NOTE: These are community pools, we are not responsible for any incident that could happen when mining or using them.


* Some parts (or all) of their fees are used for different purposes: Charity, Block Finder Reward, Improvement of Garlicoin…

When Do I Get Paid

Since this is a pool, you will most likely get paid 100 blocks after the blocks that you have helped mine.
For example, if you have mined block 1000, then you will get paid by the pool when block 1100 is mined.
You can check out which block have been mined on the Explorer.
