When you first purchase hashrates from us, once the hashrates start mining, the payout will be deposited into your wallet after a block is found.
The payout is given out based on the amount of hashrates (PPLNS system) you have contributed in a mining pool. Note that we use Antpool as our mining pool. Given that in Antpool 5000.00 PH/s has been put in to solve a block and you own 300.00 TH/s, you get paid proportionally.
You can expect multiple payouts a day depending on how many blocks are solved by the mining daily. Check your transaction page to see all the information of your solved block.
Your payouts have to be accounted for electricity and maintenance costs. In Hashnest, we put them together as maintenance fee. Your payout per block will be used to pay for your maintenance fees used per block; the remaining amount is then your profit.
For example, in this screenshot, 1 TH/s brings about a payout of 0.00004 BTC as seen on the graph gradient. The maintenance cost takes away 43% of the payout, making the daily profit to be about USD$4 if you have a whole miner’s hashrate.
