One of the earlier world's largest pools for mining Bitcoin, which is trusted by many "home miners" in the last few years, will stop working at the end of this month.
BTC Guild stop your mining servers in June 30, 2015 at 23:59 UTC. Users will still be able to login to the site pool, watch your logs and bring profit before September 30, 2015. According to the administration of the pool, the main reason for stopping the operation of the service was the high cost of maintaining the service, as well as the recently released NYDFS BitLicense, which expose BTC Guild risk. The pool will be closed permanently. No software pool or the user base will not be sold & nbsp; third parties, so there is no worry about the safety of personal data.
The news seems very sad, as many users have used the pool BTC Guild for many years, in addition, he is still the best for them in this service you can trust. Unfortunately, in recent years, more and more resources for Bitcoin mining is concentrated in the hands of large industrial companies mayningovyh, which are mainly located in Asia. BTC Gulid was the largest pool that is mostly used by individuals and domestic miners, which is good for the power distribution network Bitcoin. This fact is also the reason that the share of BTC Guild, relative to the total capacity of the network, has been steadily declining in recent years, because Home Mining is now in crisis. Currently, the share of BTC Guild about 3% of the entire network Bitcoin. In its heyday in 2013, it managed to reach a pool of about 40% capacity throughout the network Bitcoin.
