Which reward method should I choose?

  • If you are looking to make money off of the cryptocoin network, you might use PPLNS due to its higher payout. PPLNS will give you wide fluctuations in your 24 hour payout, but for hardcore miners, the law of large numbers states you will earn more this way. This is for people trying to mine as fast as possible and able to commit to long periods of uninterrupted mining.
  • PPS is for people who want to have statistics to base calculations off of for upsizing their mining power. PPS is not recommended for a simple mining because the payout is less in the long run. Simply speaking, if you are mining for a few hours a day and then stopping your workers, PPS is for you. However, if you are going to set up a long and committed run of uninterrupted mining, you might opt for PPLNS.
