HashFlare is a European Bitcoin cloud mining company based in Tallinn, Estonia. The company was formed in July 2013 and has been operating cloud minining since April 2015. HashFlare is a part of HashCoins, which manufactures ASIC Bitcoin miners. This Hashflare review will present real results from all cloud mining contracts provided by Hashflare. Also, the review will analysis some profitability calculations and estimations.
HashFlare’s Bitcoin contracts are available as lifetime contracts. This means that they run as long as profitable. Once the maintenance fee is greater than the profit generated, the contracts are closed.
According to our calculations, HashFlare Bitcoin profitability had a break-even period of 197 days as of 2017-10-01. However, our Bitcoin cloud mining contracts are quite old; if you buy a new contract, you will likely see a faster break-even.
1 year contract
HashFlare Ethereum cloud mining profitability had a break-even period of 487 days as of 2017-10-01.
HashFlare Litecoin cloud mining contracts had a break-even period of only 262 days as of 2017-10-01
1 year contract
HashFlare Dash 2017 profitability was the best out of all our HashFlare contracts. As of 2017-10-01, the breakeven period was 1657 days. However, the Dash price has been very volatile, as have all crypto prices, so calculations can vary significantly.
1 year contract
Of all of our 2017 HashFlare contracts, the HashFlare Zcash contract profitability was the worst. According to our calculations on 2017-10-01, the breakeven period was over 485 days on a 1 year contract.
HashFlare allows you to decide which pools you want your hashrate to mine in so that you can find the most profitable combination. The Company’s equipment is set up to work with a number of pools. When you select a specific pool and the hashrate percent allocated to it, HashFlare’s system begins to use that amount of hashrate in the selected pool. The accounting happens daily, thus you are able to change the pools once a day.
Now, miners are able to use the new Scrypt multipool to make HashFlare mining even more profitable. The Scrypt pool’s algorithm will automatically allocate hashing power to mine a variety of currencies, focusing on the most profitable at the moment of mining. Additionally, the Scrypt maintenance fee will be cut in half. According to Hashflare, with the reduced maintenance fee, multipool function and current statistics, the payback period of Scrypt contracts now reaches 200 days.
You will receive a payout once per day, between 00:00 and 09:00 UTC. You will receive your first payout within 24 hours after purchasing your hashrate. Afterward, the payouts will continue daily.
Overall, HashFlare cloud mining contracts have an excellent profitability, although it varies from contract to contract. We found that the HashFlare Dash contract had the shortest breakeven period of any contract, with only 1657 days, while the Zcach contract was over 485 days.
As always, it is important to remember that profitability can change fast, as the cryptocurrency market is so volatile. Our recommendation is always to start with a small investment and grow continuously. Read more about how to calculate cloud mining profit.
