We're crypto enthusiasts with decades of experience in software engineering. We ran pools during the 2014 crypto bull run and we're here to be the best Chia pool you can find.
We are also entrepreneurs and our unique experience and skillsets guarantee a solid and reliable farming experience. Our farmers can expect fair and regular payouts in a pool that doesn't let them down.
Because we give farmers what they want. We are reliable and dependable.

If you have OG plots, you'll need to plot again once. Old ("original" or OG) plots cannot be used in the new pool specification and they're not safe for pooled mining since they're bound to a fixed pool key.
The new "portable" plots support farming to your own smart contract that can be assigned to a pool of your choice and switch pool on demand. The plot format is actually the same, the difference is you bind the new ones to your contract NFT.
Quick summary (see the pooling user guide for more detail):
1 - Create an NFT first if you don't have one already (this is the token that contains a smart contract to which you'll be farming), it will ask you which wallet to use if you have several and it will show the pool info and ask you if you’re sure:
chia plotnft create -s pool -u https://pool.21chia.com
2 - Do chia plotnft show and take note of your “P2 singleton address (pool contract address for plotting)”, that’s the address you’ll need to create plots.
3 - Do chia plots create using option -c instead of -p. Put the P2 singleton address there after option -c.
If you want to plot faster use the madmax plotter
0% fee for at least the first 3 months (until October)! 0.5% afterwards on PPLNS. And yes, our lifetime 0% fee offer is true, for those who farm with us until August 10.
You can choose between PPS or 0% fee PPLNS in you farmer dashboard settings:
- PPS is great if you want to get paid regardless of pool luck, even if we don't find blocks in a while. It's your chance to get 100% assured payouts that only depend on the work you do (the partials you submit), but it has a 2% fee to compensate the added risk for the pool. Even with the fee, we still pay more than any other PPS pool.
- On PPLNS farmers will share block rewards proportionally to work done (points earned) over a previous time window. When the pool is lucky in the short term and it finds more blocks, they get paid more; conversely, if unlucky, they earn less, but in the end this evens out over time.
Payouts are made twice daily at 9am and 9pm UTC to the address you've configured in the Chia farmer. Your points will be reset when the pool farms a block and distributes the PPLNS amounts. For more info about payout methods, see here. There is a 24h cooldown period for switching back and forth to PPS.
Terms for the zero fee lifetime offer: you need to join the 21Chia pool before August 11 00:00 UTC and farm on the pool (submit partials and earn points). Please note any zero fee offer expires if you leave the pool (from July 16 onwards, not earning at least 10 points every day after the first is considered leaving too). You may switch between PPS and PPLNS any number of times, this won't affect the zero fee promotion.
