Yes, it expires after a period of time. I will let you know the period a bit later.

Hello,
I was wondering if a web-app or desktop app was expected?
Also I do have some ideas, and working knowledge in sysadmin and
programming (webapp with angularjs,java,python...).

My idea is quite ambitious for the moment, it's based on the distribution
of computing power across smartphone, smartobject, etc... I guess some
of those could perform mining, but the battery life would have to be taken into
account. Similarly. most PC/laptop are not running at their full capacity, it would
make sense to ask friends to mine, provided that we can garantee computer security
together with a share of benefits.

Lots of stuff them! Anyone can MP for details

Whatever you come up with, you are completely free to choose.

I spent last two weeks trying to find how and where this API could be used.
But I have to claim this API completely useless in current release.

You can just get various info from pool.
No any actions allowed.

So honestly I don't want to develop my own copy of minergate miner or stats app.


You can start with what we have here and if you have in mind a project that requires some additional methods, you can always contact us. We will see if we can help you, the important thing is to have a clear idea of what you want to create.

Thank you for the feedback, Zhe, even if we won't be able to implement it, your post gave us something to think about!

Hi. I'm referring to your 'mining/stats' API. For each currency you have parameter unconfirmedBalance. I'm comparing between API return out and at MG Dashboard for BCN and it appear that your API return missing '.'

Hello again guys.

I was working on miner for smartphones before this contest. Finished it, now added some more options using your API.
The link to my work is in your mailbox, as asked.

Here is what I made:
- Mobile miner that gets me somewhat more than 10 H/s (usually 12-13)
- Functions: log in to your MG account, choose the currency, mine the coins, check your balance.

I used login and get balance methods from your API. Tell me if I need more to participate in context.
The process is power consuming, so maybe plug in before start mining. Hope you enjoy it, also the community.
