1. What is NiceHash?
Nicehash is a popular hash power broker and marketplace where users can buy and sell the computational power of their mining devices, known as hashrate. Hashrate or Hashpower, is a computational resource that is a quantification of how much hashing power your computer or mining hardware can produce for the purposes of solving different cryptocurrency Proof of Work algorithms. Nicehash allows users to buy and sell hashpower and point it at the mining pool of their choice where they will be paid proportional to the amount of hashpower they connect.
Nicehash and other hashrate marketplaces allow users to mine on Binance Pool without having to own and run their own mining hardware, and allow users to participate in popular Binance Pool exclusive products such as Pool Savings.
