Getting Started: Basics
What is MiningRigRentals?
We are Marketplace service and Mining community that lets Bitcoin and Altcoin miners list their hardware on our website for hourly leased contracts, which prospective renters can view and purchase a contract from owners of the hardware.
Renters can view the list of hardware available for lease, and purchase a hourly contract from the rig owner, enabling people without the hardware to gain access to a wide range of available Bitcoin or Altcoin miners.
We also operate a scrypt, x11, and sha256 pool if you are only looking to mine.
We provide an interface for both rig owners, and renters to manage their contracts, view live, and historical hashing rates, as well as gain access to the necessary backend connection service to enable the hardware to be rented out securely and privately to the renter for the rental contract length.
We provide support for these contracts, limited to disputes where rig owner hardware did not perform for the renter, we review all rentals, and provide a fair review and will offer refunds if the rig owner did not live up to the advertised working hash rate.
We understand that renting seems risky. Here at MRR we've put together tools that will help you make the right decision:
- Paying with Bitcoin makes renting easy. Simply fund your account and click to rent any rig you wish.
- Make rental choices based on "actual" hash rate. Our system tracks the complete hash rate history of all mining rigs. Hash rates are displayed in a convenient graph.
- Also make use of the convenient Live Hash rate graphs on individual rig views, as well as a whole aggregate view of all rented rigs on your rental control panel!
- We don't want you to only rely on stable hash rates, we've also implemented a rig rating system called RPI which helps you find the best rigs.
- We at MRR pride ourselves in our support system, we take the time to review all finished rentals for low performance, so you can be assured that you are getting the best!
- Unlike other services, our refunds are precisely calculated to return what you are owed in accepted shares vs. what was advertised.
- Backup pools! Have you ever found yourself trying to be first during a coin launch only to find out your first pool choice isn't up and running? Our system lets you set up to 5 pools in a fail over system.
- Choices! We're committed to releasing rental channels for any and all active algorithms.
- We employ an extremely active network of developers. Have a question? No problem, drop by irc.freenode.net and /join #miningrigrentals. Alternatively, use our support ticket system!
- Our backend proxy system is coded 100% in fast C++ which enjoys super fast reaction times to your pool, as well as enjoying 99.9% uptime.
Here are a few great reasons to list your rig with MRR:
- Easy withdrawals. You can enable automatic withdrawals to be sent to your Bitcoin address anytime your account reaches a configured balance.
- Website pool manager. Our system allows you to change what pool your miner is connected to from our website. We allow 5 pools to be configured with fail over. FREE!
- Hash rate graphs. Our graphs give you up to the minute hash rates displayed with your moving average, we also have a Live Hash rate graph that gives you live data within seconds.
- Listing your rig for rent is the best way to maximize your mining profits. However, you never have to list your rig for rent. There is no fee to use our site/service for the miner controls or hash rate graphs.
- We have a robust accounting system, where you can see all of your history and how much you have made. Our system includes automatic withdrawal support.
- Our backend system is coded 100% in fast C++ which enjoys super fast reaction times to your pool, as well as enjoying 99.9% uptime.

RPI, or Rental Performance Index, is a complex algorithm that indicates how successful the rig has been performing. It's designed to give the renter an estimation of how well that rig will perform in the future.
It considers a number of factors including (but not limited to) the rigs hashrate performance before and after rentals, number of rentals completed, time the rig is offline, refunds generated for rig related issues.
The score ranges from 0 - 100, with 100 being the best possible score.
Good scores range from 90 - 100 with 95 being the score for new rigs once established with at least 5 rentals without incident.
Medium scores range from 70 - 89. Scores 69 and under are considered mediocre, and the rig may not be stable.
If the rig looks stable lately, you could give the rig owner the benefit of the doubt and try for a successful rental to help them with their score.
Please note that RPI scores are calculated at the rig performance level, not the renter performance level. This means that issues stemming from renter related issues, like offline pools, high rejection rate, no hash-rate showing on the renters pool due to difficulty related settings, are not considered in the RPI score.
Actually Bitcoin mining is already a specialized business and not profitable for everyone. Therefore we strongly encourage anyone interested in mining to do his/her own research and make the calculations before investing any money to the operation.
Here at MiningRigRentals most people are speculating on the price of their mined coins; this can Include mining the coins, waiting for a later time in which they are profitable. Other ways people utilize mining and rentals in general are for getting that lucky block strike, or snatching up hash rate deals. Whatever the reason, please make sure you are calculating your profitability, as we are not responsible if you lose money.
CoinDesk covered everything important regarding this topic in the following article:
It is written for general audience which means they cover other alt-coins as well.
We now offer a status page where we list some of our critical infrastructure.
It will list the general availibility or online status of the services we utilize for MRR.
It's located at status.miningrigrentals.com
We have a good track record on uptime, and we want to let you know that we care about the quality of our service.
We will attempt to support BTC-NYA, however since there will be no replay protection it may be difficult to support it.
We will be pausing withdrawls and deposits at the time of the fork (assuming it does), and will be resumed once we have seperated our balance from one of the chains.
In order to do this (For your own needs as well) we need a transaction output that is the child of a block that was mined post fork. Balance will be mixed with this transaction,
making it not possible to replay on the other chain and thus seperating the coins. WE ARE PAYING A REWARD FOR ANY SUCH OUTPUT - CONTACT US.
This only applies to our hot wallet, we may stop "bank runs" on BTC or BTC-NYA If we have people withdrawing too much of one coin we may pause withdrawls for that coin.
It also takes time to add a new currency to our system, please be patient while we added the new coin.
However, it is our hope the chains do not split as this will cause a massive price drop and making it difficult to do business with "bitcoin"
We do not support Bitcoin unlimited due to the vulnerabilities that exist in that client.
BTC Withdrawals or deposits may be suspended during any fork period.
Should there be a fork, we are only obligated to provide Bitcoin Core BTC balances. We may not keep your balance in any of the deposit addresses associated with your account and thus may not have any forked coins available to provide to you.
All deposits and earnings made to and from MiningRigRentals are balances owed to you in the respective currency only.
We cannot legally convert one currency into another, or supply you "coins" that appear out of thin air via forks.
