FAQ: User Account
Under Settings, Account Details,
This is the configuration page where you can enter or change a number of options related to your account.
In order to make any changes to this page, you will need your PIN code, or optionally if you have enabled 2FA (Two Factor Authentication), your 2FA code.
You can change your email address, your password, and your crypto withdrawal address, along with a label for each address. You can also enable an auto payout threshold. Changing your email address requires re-confirmation.
We accept only valid crypto address in each of the 'Payout Address' fields. Your Payout address is where your coins go when you choose to withdraw a balance on Mining Rig Rentals. Please be aware, regulations are evolving, we require that you enter only a wallet address you are in control of, do not enter someone else’s address.
If you choose to enable payout threshold, be aware that at 12AM EST we will auto withdraw your entire balance on MRR to your configured Payout Address if that balance exceeds the value you entered into the threshold field. This setting generally only applies to customers selling mining hardware contracts on our site, if you are a renter depositing funds then enabling the auto pay threshold may cause your balance to be withdrawn. See 'What is Auto Pay Threshold' for more information about payout threshold.
Making changes to senitive account settings on this section like Payout Address, password, or email address introduce a 24 hour security hold on withdrawals. This helps ensure that You are the one making the changes. We strongly encourage you to enable the 2FA account security feature by going to your account settings page. Enabling 2FA will introduce a final 24 hour security hold on withdrawals, once it is complete there are no further holds once 2FA is enabled. See 'What is the best way to protect my account?' for more information. If you are in need of your funds sooner, please email firstname.lastname@example.org from the accounts assigned email, include your current pin code or a crypto address located in your account and a description that you want to remove the security hold. We will then review and choose to remove the hold period if the information matches.
If you have forgotten your PIN, follow these instructions.
Navigate to our Reset Pin page, request a PIN reset confirmation that will be emailed to your email address.
Follow the directions in the email and then on the reset pin form.
Help is also available through direct contact (slower)
Please email email@example.com from the account's assigned email address.
Include your account name, and the new PIN # you would like. (4 numeric digits).
If you have an open ticket; if applicable include the Ticket Link (Or ID #), otherwise ignore if you don't have a ticket.
Also, if applicable, update the ticket indicating that you have sent the email (This helps prompt any support personnel to check for the email)
Once you have done this, we will change the PIN as soon as possible, and will inform you via email or updating the ticket.
If you have a deposit and it is not confirming, or shows "pending" on your transaction history page:
You may not have included the proper transaction fee. Transaction fee is taken by the Bitcoin (or chosen altcoin)'s network, we do not receive this fee. Your coin client should send a correct fee, unless it has not had a time to check the current fee, or you set it too low. We cannot control how fast your deposit takes to deposit, we accept it once it has Three confirmations, or 12 on Ethereum.
If the coin's blockchain is under a heavy volume of transaction load, it may be necessary to include more transaction fee.
Please be patient if your transaction is taking a while, we cannot give any credit for pending transactions.
Some pools require your miners public IP for them to pay you. Since you are mining through our platform, these would be our IP's
The specific IP depends upon which of our servers the rig is connecting to. You can see this under the 'workers' tab in an active rental, or directly on the rigs page if not rented. Also a rig is required to choose their default server, in either case, it is generally indicated with a flag icon. The icon represents the regional server, you can review the below list and select the correct one. We may also use IPv6 address (the longer one with : in them). Such a pool generally lists one of the number pairs, choose the one that contains that number pair.
Here is the list of our server IP addresses
If you have an issue signing in due to 2FA:
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org from the account's assigned email address.
Include your account name, Ticket Link(Or ID #) [If applicable], and your current PIN #. Include a short description of the issue.
Also (if applicable) update the ticket indicating that you have sent the email (This helps prompt any support personnel to check for the email)
Once you have done this, we will remove 2FA as soon as possible, and will inform you via email or updating the ticket.
Thanks for using MRR.
If your deposit is not showing up, first step is to make sure you sent it to the correct MRR deposit address associated with your account.
Once you determine this, note that we check for transactions every minute, make sure to wait at least that long for our transaction scanners to detect it.
If it still does not show up, open a support ticket and we'll investigate.
We've noticed an increase in people depositing LTC to their BTC address. Note that recovery of this is a time consuming process and may not always suceed, we may not issue recovery for amounts less than a USD value of $100.
Make sure you send to your LTC address, which starts with a L or M. It cannot start with 3, some services use antiquated code that accepts 3, which is invalid, note that if your wallet lets you send to a 3, the issue is their fault.
Our tabs are clearly labelled which coin it is along with the associated coin logos and names on those pages.
If you sent an Ethereum deposit:
Note that our Ethereum transaction scanner can get behind, as there are issues with the Ethereum protocol. Let us know if you sent a transaction and it has not arrived within 10 minutes by opening a ticket.
Also make sure you send a real Ethereum transaction, and not a internal contract transaction. We cannot process all contracts at this time. If you are unsure, just send the transaction, if it does not show, open a ticket and we can credit this internal transaction.
If you send other ethereum based coins that we do not accept, they may be lost. We will try to recover these but note that it may not be possible.
Please note that Binance is not supported at MRR. Please do not send fake ethereum tokens from Binance. You may use Binance, but only send real Ethereum on the Ethererum network.
A reference to a transaction fee means that a particular bitcoin or altcoin transaction must include this fee in order for the coin network (miners) to accept your transaction.
When you send a transaction to your wallet at MRR you must include a transaction fee. The fee should be high enough so that your transaction is included by the network. Due to the recent upsurge of transaction volume in Bitcoin and Ethereum, the average transaction fee has become higher.
We show a recommended fee on your balance page.
When requesting a payout we will need to also include a transaction fee, due to the large price of the fee and high network usage as of late we will need to also charge for this fee which is listed on the balance page.
Due to the nature of our business model the fees we are charged by the network are substantial in periods of high transaction demand, in the several thousands of $'s range for some of our largest transactions. We must recover these fees as a transaction fee taken from payouts to stay in business. This fee we charge changes frequently based on network conditions at the time of request or may be adjusted at the time of payout.
We pay a percentage of the fee ourselves, the rest is included additionally in your payout request. If the fee is high you can check back later to see if we offer a lower fee. You have the option to cancel a payout request at any time and re initiate it if we offer a lower fee, however we can not provide refunds for fees paid in payouts that were already sent.
We understand that the Bitcoin and Ethereum fees are high, but the popularity of those networks has drove the price of the fee that high. We cannot offer any discount on fees for those networks, as we would quickly be drained of all btc/eth paying it in fees, our other charges for using our service are low and do not offer us enough income to offset these network fees. We also can't offer teired withdraw fees.
We suggest using Litecoin or Bcash for payments if network fees are of a concern to you, fees there are low.
Account names cannot be changed unless there are extraordinary circumstances.
If you have forgotten your username, you can use the forgot username reminder page located on the login page, or click here
Please email email@example.com from the account's assigned email address.
Once you have done this, we will notify you of your current account username as soon as possible.
You should be able to update your accounts email address to a new one. Please make sure you do not mistype it, and that it is a valid address.
You will have to re-confirm you new email address, you will get a confirmation email. If you don't get one, check spam filter, or resend the confirmation using appropriate button on settings page.
Contact support if you need help.
We strongly encourage you to enable the 2FA account security feature by going to your account settings page. Once there, follow the instructions to enable 2FA.
You can use Google Authenticator app located on Apple IOS Store or Google Play Store, or other third party 2FA applications like Authy, just scan the code on the screen and enter one of the generated 2FA codes and your current account PIN code to enable.
Making changes to senitive account settings like Payout Address, password, email introduce a 24 hour security hold on withdrawals. Enabling 2FA will introduce a final 24 hour security hold on withdrawals, this helps ensure that You are the one enabling security on your account, once it is complete there are no further holds once 2FA is enabled.
We also encourage you to keep an eye on your Account history page, where you can see the changes made to the account, including login history.
If you cannot log into your account, it is probably due to one of these reasons:
- You are using an incorrect user-name. Please be aware that neither "firstname.lastname@example.org" nor "miner.worker2" is a user-name. This problem might be indicated by: "Invalid Username or Password".
- You are ignoring case-sensitiveness. Both user-name and password are case-sensitive. This problem might be indicated by: "Invalid Username or Password".
- An invalid CAPTCHA Code. We may enable CAPTCHA at points for security reasons, a valid code may be required.
- Account Inactivity. We may close accounts if they are inactive for long periods of time (greater then one year.) The details are presented in our Terms of Service when you signed up. Contact support to re-open a closed account.
If you recieved a message regarding being throttled, it means your user had too many failed login attempts. There is a 15 minute cooldown period for this issue. Contact support for further help if you are still having the issue after the 15 minutes.
Please make sure none of these is your case before seeking further help from our support staff for not being able to log in.
You can buy bitcoins from either exchanges, or directly from other people via marketplaces.
You can pay for them in a variety of ways, ranging from cash to credit and debit cards to wire transfers, or even with other cryptocurrencies, depending on who you are buying them from and where you live.
In the US, Coinbase, and Circle offer purchases with credit cards. Bittylicious, CoinCorner and Coinbase offer this service in the UK, accepting 3D Secure-enabled credit and debit cards on the Visa and MasterCard networks.
Coinbase is a popular wallet and exchange service that will also trade US dollars and euros for bitcoins. The company has web and mobile apps. Originally a US-only service, Coinbase has recently opened up to a large number of European countries.
Circle offers users worldwide the chance to store, send, receive and exchange bitcoins. Currently only US citizens are able to link bank accounts to deposit funds, but credit and debit cards are also an option.
You can find more detailed information on the bitcoin wiki about where and how to get bitcoins.
An Auto Pay Threshold is a mechanism for our rig owners to have their earnings at Mining Rig Rentals automatically withdrawn and deposited to their set payout address at a regular schedule. Configure the minimum amount which will trigger an Auto Pay event occurring at 11:50pm each day, with the transaction being sent at 12 am. The entire balance minus the withdraw fee is sent.
Setting auto pay if you are renting rigs will undesirably send your funds back to your configured payout address. To Disable Auto Pay, set the value to 0.
