MinerGate is an open-source[3] multi-cryptocurrency mining pool and GUI[4] miner. Created on March 2014,[5] MinerGate provides two main mining services : merged-mining that allows users to mine two different coins simultaneously without decrease of hashrate for major coin, and smart-mining to mine the most profitable cryptocurrency at the time.[6]

Having been the first mining pool for CryptoNote based currencies, MinerGate supports today the following currencies : Aeoncoin (AEON), Bitcoin (BTC), Bytecoin (BCN), Dashcoin (DSH), DigitalNote (XDN), Ethereum (ETH), Ethereum Classic (ETC), Fantomcoin (FCN), Infinium-8 (INF8), Litecoin (LTC), Monero (XMR), MonetaVerde (MCN), Quazarcoin (QCN) and Zcash (ZEC).[7]

MinerGate supports both PPS and PPLNS[8] payment modes.[9]
