- Founded: 2017
- Mining Pool. Started out in China but has opened mining facilities in Canada.
- From this post (9-2019) by Bitcoin.com:
"History: One of the more inscrutable Chinese pools, BTC.top operates as a private mining pool, and as such is off-limits to ordinary miners. While other Chinese pools attempt to translate their services into English, BTC.top doesn’t see the need, making the pool something of an enigma to westerners.
- Coins mined: BTC, BCH
- In this interesting interview the founder states to be a supporter of bigger blocks and denies BTC.TOP to be owned by Bitmain:
“We chose Canada because of the relatively cheap cost and the stability of the country and policies,” BTC.TOP Founder Jiang Zhuoer told Bloomberg, adding he also considered locations in Iran and Russia."
Some have speculated BTC.TOP’s hashrate comes primarily from Bitmain, but Zhuoer states that none of the hashrate belongs to Bitmain: “Jihan Wu keeps his hashrate in antpool & btc.com” – he says, before adding:
“China has many big miners. They don’t know what happen and what is BU before I contacted them one by one, but they all support big blocks once they understand what we are arguing about. They are the silent majority.”
"Our pool will switch to the most profitable chain automatically, let you make 30% more profit everyday,” said a BTC.TOP personnel according to a rough translation obtained by trustnodes."
