Starting today we’re implementing a new way to earn credits and discounts on our Pro memberships, all while using Spektrol. While you’re on the site, you can now choose to mine the Monero (XMR) cryptocurrency and use your hash blocks to buy credits or discount the price of a SpektrolPro membership.The more you use the site, the more you can earn. Customize how much you’d like to devote to mining at any time, and turn it off or on whenever you want. We hope this enhances your Spektrol experience.” – Spektrol
Mining / Earning Credits: We now offer an alternative way to earn credits and discounts on memberships. By opting into our cloud mining platform, you can use a small (or large) percentage of your idle CPU power to generate hash blocks. Hash blocks can then be exchanged for credits or applied as a discount to your SpektrolPro membership. You can stop or start mining at any time, and you always have full control over how much of your CPU power you dedicate toward mining. Higher CPU allocations will generate hash blocks faster. What Is Mining? Mining is a term used in cryptocurrency that refers to using a computer to solve a complex and difficult puzzle. What is Monero? Monero (XMR) is an open-source cryptocurrency created in April 2014 that focuses on privacy, decentralization, and scalability.”
How does Spektrol mining work? When you enable mining, an interface will appear at the top of your screen with all of the controls necessary. You can change the number of threads and CPU power you dedicate to mining, as well as pause or resume your mining. Though the counter may reset when you navigate to a different page on our site, that number simply reflects the total since the page was loaded, and not a grand total. A grand total of all your hash blocks mined and corresponding XMR/USD values can be seen by clicking “Check Balance”, or visiting your settings page. How Do I Disable Mining? You can disable mining by visiting your settings page and clicking “Disable Mining” button on the bottom of the Earnings tab. You can re-enable mining at any time.
