However, if the miners are still unstable/broken/low hash rates, our tech teams will notify customers with quotations to ask whether to proceed with repair through a manufacturing official repair center and provide the related invoice if required.

My Miner Shows 0 Hashrate / Offline, What Is The Reason?

When the miners show 0 Hashrate or offline. There are mainly two reasons. 

One is that the miners have mechanical problems and turned off automatically. The miners will be back online right after the problems are fixed. 

The other reason is when the whole hosting facility cut off the electricity supply temporarily due to the mandatory power station maintenance required by the government.

Either way, the offline time will be deducted from the monthly invoice bill.

What Happens If I Delay Paying The Monthly Hosting Fee?

It is clearly stated in our contract that payment made after the due date will be considered as delayed and customers will be responsible for the delayed charges. A delayed charge is equivalent to 0.5% of the Total Service Fee of the month (30 days on average), incurred for each day that has been delayed in the month.

If customers fail to pay the monthly hosting fee for more than 1 week after the last due date, they will be informed of any delayed payment or suspension of operation by email. If the payment is refused within 3 days after customers receive the notice, then the ownership of miners will be transferred to HashMax automatically.

General

How To Choose The Best Mining Rig?

Before choosing mining hardware that is best suited for oneself, a customer needs to look out for a few basic things as follows:

  • Hash rate: The hash rate refers to the amount of power a miner uses to solve the mathematical algorithm that mines the cryptocurrency. The higher the hash rate, the greater the chance of winning a block reward.
  • Power consumption: The power consumption informs the user of how much electricity the mining hardware will utilize when operating. Power consumption is measured in Watts. To avoid using up huge amounts of electricity, you’ll need to find hardware with low power consumption.
  • Energy efficiency: Energy efficiency is measured in Joules (J). Likewise with power consumption, the lower the amount of energy the miner uses, the better. For instance, if the number of Joules is low, it tends to suggest that the miner will consume less power and still put out the same amount of work.
  • Other factors: price, brand liability, breakeven duration, reselling price, and so on.

Would There Be Any Refund?

We only offer a full refund if the miner is out of stock. However, upon request in some cases, HashMax will offer refund option to customers.

What Is Included In The Miner Price?

For miners purchased from our site and hosted with us, the miner price includes sourcing, quality inspection, power supply, cables, racks, software installation, testing, and shipping. For miners purchased from HashMax but hosted elsewhere, the miner price includes sourcing, quality inspection, power supply, and testing.

Due to market fluctuations, product prices may be adjusted after your purchase. HashMax does not assume any obligation of prior notice or compensation for any adjustments in price.

What Is The Minimum Quantity Of Purchase?

HashMax does not set any limit on the number of purchases. But there will be a special deal for bulk purchase. Please contact us via sales@hashmax.org before placing an order for more than 50 units.

When Will The Future Batch Miner Be Shipped Out?

Future batch miners shipping dates are roughly the months stated on the product descriptions. We do not guarantee exact shipping dates as manufacturers (Bitmain, Innosilicon, Avalon, etc) do not provide exact shipping dates.

Others

Why Does Your Miners Price Change Everyday?

Miners demand fluctuates according to the cryptocurrency price, and supply of miners is limited as manufacturers release the batches with limited quantities. As cryptocurrency prices appreciate, miners prices tend to rise as well. As cryptocurrency prices depreciate, miners prices tend to fall as well.

How Can I Get A Discounted Price?

HashMax provides a bulk purchase discount for more than 50 units excluding the miners that are on sale.

Do You Accept Down Payment For Future Batch Miners?

We do not accept any down payment, which is the same as buying directly from manufacturers.

What Is The Difference Between Cloud Mining And Hosting Service?

Cloud mining is a one click service to provide you an immediate mining service, which enables customers to start mining with a fixed hashrate within 48 hours after the payment. HashMax provides 2 different cloud mining duration, 6 month and lifetime. 6-month duration is to provide a short and convenient experience with mining. Lifetime duration is to provide long term convenient experience with mining. 

Hosting service is a maintenance service of your entrusted miners. You may buy miners from HashMax directly through hosting packages, please visit www.hashmax.org/hosting to know more. You are also welcome to buy miners from other suppliers and send miners to our hosting facilities. 

Major differences between cloud mining and hosting service are;

  • Cloud mining is to get you started immediately with mining at a fixed hashrate.
  • Hosting service, you are the sole owner of your entrusted miners hence you may move out the miners upon completion of the hosting contract.

Is There A Contract To Sign?

  • Hosting service: Customers have the option to choose a 6-month contract or 1-year contract to sign. After the hosting contract ends, our customers will have the following options: 
  1. Renew the contract;
  2. Stop the hosting and resell their miners;
  3. Stop the hosting and ship out their miners to a different location of their choices.
  • Cloud Mining service: Customers have the option to choose a 6-month contract or life-time contract to sign.

Does HashMax Provide Wallets For Its Clients?

HashMax does not offer any wallet service, but customers can find a great variety of wallets available online. It is a personal choice of customers. For more information about wallets, please check our Support Page.

Can I Use Another Mining Pool?

Currently HashMax is cooperating with BTC.com Pool, resulting in our dashboard features based on BTC.com Pool. We recommend our customers to use the default pool BTC.com Pool for major coins as our facilities have VIP servers from BTC.com Pool to enhance all miners’ connections. We also use the F2 pool for some altcoins mining. For better miner management and more stable mining income, we do not recommend customers to use other mining pools.
