Pay-Per-Share (PPS)

By CoinGecko | Updated on Aug 13, 2021
You are compensated for each valid share that you contribute. Each share is worth a set amount of cryptocurrency that may be mined. Regardless of whether the pool detects a block or not, miners will always get compensated using the PPS payment method. In other words, miners sell their hashrate to a mining pool for a fixed income. Each mining pool is in charge of its revenues and losses.
