Making cryptomining accessible to anyone.


Frequently Asked Questions

ProMining is a GPU leasing service that is a safe and simple way to start mining without having to deal with complex hardware and software set-up. Our hardware is located in Bowling Green, KY in a secure facility with a support staff on site. ProMining is here to make crypto mining accessible to anyone. No need to worry about equipment setup, ventilation, and power.
The process is: sign up and lease the number of GPUs you wish to mine with. Select a pool, enter your cryptocurrency wallet address and you'll be mining to your own wallet within minutes!
ProMining accepts all major credit cards and leasing is priced in USD.
At ProMining, the price dynamically adjusts to the current price of Ethereum. At the time of checkout you are charged the full indicated amount. Thus the nature of the lease is speculative.
Leasing GPUs from ProMining allows you to avoid the cost, setup and ongoing maintenance associated with mining. Additionally, this equipment requires ventilation and creates heat and noise. This is handled for you, so you can reap the rewards of mining.
You only need your email address and a password to sign up, however to lease a GPU we will need a valid credit card and address for payment verification purposes. For more information on privacy see our Privacy Policy.
Currently ProMining is only offering the Radeon RX 580 with 8GB of ram which are all overclocked. Plans are in place for adding different card support soon. Sign up for our mailing list to be updated with these details.
Yes, the GPUs are overclocked to ensure peak performance for each of our miners and is modified from time to time to increase processing power. Sign up for our mailing list to be updated with these details.
GPU mining is extremely complicated and time consuming. ProMining has setup dedicated GPUs with proper ventilation and low power costs so you can reap the benefits without the headaches. ProMining has developed sophisticated monitoring software that ensure uptime and enjoys well below average power cost (KW/h) that is passed onto the user.
With ProMining you are leasing an actual GPU that is 100% dedicated to your wallet with full transparency. You receive the full power of the GPU dedicated to all your mining needs. Traditional Hash-Rate leasing has run into a lot of controversy throughout the mining industry. The problem with Hash-Rate leasing is there is no way to ensure that the actual amount being purchased is provided to the customer. There have been lots of articles published on this topic and they typically have been tied to complex referral systems that create a ponzi scheme.
Leasing is handled on 30 or 90 days basis, where a discount is provided for users that lock in for a longer period. There are no auto-renews, however users can extend their lease if they would like through the ProMining Dashboard. See Can I renew my lease before my lease ends for more details.
You may lease a GPU for 30 or 90 day terms. Those who lease for 90 days enjoy a lower effective monthly lease rate.
You will be charged at the time of your Lease for the full duration of the lease term. The lease will not auto-renew. If you do not manually renew the lease within 5 days of the end of the lease term, the card ceases mining to your pool/wallet.
Yes. Five (5) days prior to the expiration of an active lease the ProMining interface will allow you to renew a lease for an additional term subsequent to the expiration of your current lease term. Visit the Miners page from your Dashboard and select Extend Lease icon (Credit Card) next to the GPU you’d like to extend.
ProMining’s software automatically detects failures in real-time and will switch your account to a spare GPU in the event of a crash. See our Terms of Service for more details.
Currently ProMining supports Ethereum (ETH), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Zcash (ZEC), BitcoinGold (BTG), Monero (XMR), and Electroneum (ETN) and will continue to add more as they become relevant. If you have a recommendation for a currency you would like to see supported, please contact us. Sign up for our mailing list to be updated with these details.
With the development of specialized ASIC hardware, Bitcoin mining is not efficient with standard GPUs (The hash rate is too low). ProMining is dedicated to supporting evolving Proof of Work (PoW) blockchains with hardware that can be utilized with other emerging technologies.
The GPUs are housed in a secure facility located in Bowling Green, KY. Our support office with qualified technicians is located next door to ensure optimal uptime for all of our miners.
To add your wallet, visit the Wallets section in the Dashboard and select Add Wallet. From there create a name for the wallet, pick the currency the wallet address is tied to, and then enter your wallet address. Finally select Create Wallet to have the wallet profile added to your account.
Please see our step-by-step guide for details on setting up your own cryptocurrency wallet.
Yes, you can edit or add additional wallet profiles through the ProMiner Dashboard under Wallets section. Remember that the pools carry a minimum payout balance so if you want to update your wallet address it is recommended to do it close to the time a payout is reached.
A mining pool is a group of miners that work together to create blockchain blocks. Based on the amount of participation in the pool and processing power of the miner grants shares tied to the wallet address. Once a block is made by a miner in the pool, the profits are distributed based on the shares each user holds. The shares are representative of the work the miner puts into the overall pool.
Currently, depending on which currency is being minded, you can use Nanopool (, Ethermine (, and Supernova ( as pre-configured pools, however you can add any custom pool you’d like through our dashboard interface. See How do I configure a custom pool for more details.
There are various opinions on which pools perform better throughout the industry based on many different factors. ProMining does not endorse or recommend any particular pool over another. Our advice is to test different pools out and see how they preform for you.
ProMining supports pre-configured pools for different currencies, see What Mining Pools are supported for details. If you’d like to add a pool, select Custom from the Configurations page. Here you will need the pool addresses (pool 1 and pool 2) and the pool passwords. Custom configurations also support SSL.
ProMining does not support solo mining as the likelihood of generating any revenue with a few GPUs is unlikely where mining in a pool creates guaranteed revenue based on work performed.
Each GPU supports its own configuration. This means that you can have one GPU mining Ethereum through Ethermine while another is mining ZCash through Nanopools with different configurations. To add a configuration, you must first set up your wallets for each currency you wish to mine. See How do I configure my wallet with ProMining for details. Visit the Configurations page and select Add Config. Select the wallet profile that correspond to the currency you want to mine, then give your configuration a name. Finally select which pool you want to mine to and select Save Configuration. For more information see How do I know which Mining Pool to use.
Each GPU must be tied to a configuration. See How do I configure my miner for details on how to create a configuration. To configure a GPU, access the Dashboard section from the user account. Click on the Configure option. From there select which configuration that represents the wallet and pool the GPU will be mining with and select Apply.
Each GPU supports its own logging to notify the user of various mining conditions. This includes when the GPU starts/stops mining along with other pertinent information.
When mining is started the address will not be tracked by the pool until the first share is earned. The timing on this varies, however within 30 minutes the pool page should start reporting on the mining activity.
Each GPU can mine at different rates depending on the algorithm (currency) being mined. The Hash Rate represents the power of the GPU in different units of measurement depending on various conditions. This gives users a baseline on how different cards and configurations perform against others. Different measurements are as follows: Hashes per second (H/s), where 1 H/s is 1,000 hashes the card will process per second. MegaHashes per second (MH/s), where 1 MH/s is 1,000,000 hashes the card will process per second. Solutions per second (S/s), where 1 S/s is 1,000 solutions the card will process per second.
Hash-rates reported by mining pools are based on probability where a certain hash-rate will "on average" solve a certain number of shares. This means there is an element of luck involved. You may get periods where your hardware guesses more than its statistical probability, and periods where it does not.
The mining done by your GPU is assigned to your wallet address registered with the pool. This means that the pool itself will be passing on the profits from the mining operations directly to your wallet. ProMining has no access or control over this process. Each pool typically has a minimum, maximum and default payout by currency (for example 0.05 – 20 (Default 0.2) ETH for Ethereum on Nanopool). This helps limit the transaction fees for the pools. You will not see the currency in your wallet until the minimum balance is reach. At the time the balance is reached the pool will automatically transfer the total funds to your wallet address.
Yes, please see our step-by-step guide for setting the payout amount minimum by pool.
ProMining passes along your account email address to the password so you can adjust settings using your information.
Not a separate one. With ProMining the power cost are incorporated into the price of the lease.
No, ProMining covers all cost associated with running and maintaining your GPU. Should any hardware crash ProMining covers all the costs.
Because of the way that GPUs work and the highly specific nature of mining, only some of the computational power is used with mining a specific algorithm, leaving some of the card’s processing capacity unused. Dual mining is the act of leveraging this unused capacity to mine a different crypto currency concurrent with the primary mining operations. Dual mining can be configured to only minimally affect the primary mining operations and is a way to invested in newly emerging blockchain technologies, while still dedicated the majority of the GPU’s resources to the mainstream currency of your choice.
Dual mining consumes considerably more power than single mining as the card is utilizing more of the internal electronics. Because of this the price for dual mining is slightly more expensive.
Dual mining is currently being worked on and will be offered sometime in the future. Sign up for our mailing list to be updated with these details.
Currently dual mining is not being offered, however in our internal testing, we have seen good results with: Decred (DCR), Sia (SC), LBRY (LBC), PascalCoin (PASC), PascalLite (PASL), MaxCoin (MAX), SmartCash (SMART) and Verge-Blake (XVG). This list represents our expected starting offering for the dual mining function but is subject to change. Sign up for our mailing list to be updated with these details.
ProMining is always adding more cards. Sign up for our mailing list to be updated when new stock is available.
If we detect any hardware errors, we have active spare GPUs ready to move your configuration too. If you check your logs on the Miner page it will give you more details on what error was detected.
At ProMining, the price dynamically adjusts to the current price of Ethereum. At the time of checkout, you are charged the full indicated amount.
