Provision of computational power
4.1. By participating in the Pool, the User is entitled to provide computational power to the Pool, that is, to Hiveon, by using their hardware to perform processing operations sent to them by Hiveon for cryptocurrency mining.
4.2. Hiveon undertakes to utilise the provided and received computational power, a service provided by the User, for cryptocurrency mining. The User acknowledges that the mining itself may not be continuously performed by Hiveon in its own name and on his own account and agrees that it may be performed by third parties different from Hiveon, possibly on their own account under the terms and conditions agreed between Hiveon and this third parties
4.3. Hiveon reserves the right not to accept the computational power without having to give a reason, either temporarily regarding all Users or merely from specific Users.
By participating in the Pool the User provides computational power to the Pool by using their hardware to perform processing operations sent to them by Hiveon for cryptocurrency mining.
When you provide us with your mining computational power, we are managing it for better experience and error avoidance.
Remuneration for the computational power
4.4. The User is entitled to remuneration from Hiveon for performed processing operations, that is, for providing computational power based on the actual amount of mined cryptocurrency and the so-called scoring hash rate at the time of extraction of a valid cryptocurrency block that is then accepted by the cryptocurrency network.
4.5. Users are not entitled to any remuneration or reimbursement of any costs incurred regarding mining the particular block in the event of a so-called fork, that is if the mined block is not accepted into the main blockchain of cryptocurrencies (so-called orphaned block).
4.6. Hiveon confirms the remuneration to the User via their Account within a reasonable period. Hiveon publishes Remuneration Rates on the Pool website. Any special calculation mechanism attributable to the individual miners shall be published on the Website.
4.7. The remuneration is paid out in cryptocurrency, mining of which gave rise to the remuneration claim unless stated otherwise in the case of a particular cryptocurrency.
4.8. The confirmed remuneration is paid to the indicated private blockchain wallet of the User.
4.9. The remuneration is considered duly paid at the moment of sending it to the indicated private blockchain wallet of the User.
4.10. All provided computational power and unpaid confirmed remuneration are recorded and visible at the User’s Account. In case of deletion of the Account, the User waives all of their claims (in particular for the remuneration payment) against Hiveon and, as the case may be, against any other third party operating the Pool. The unpaid confirmed remuneration shall be no longer paid after the deletion of the user account, and from that moment on is considered a contribution to the Pool operation.
4.11. The User acknowledges that the result of mining is depending partially on luck, the result of the mining cannot be foreseen and the amount of the User’s remuneration is therefore variable, there may even be no remuneration at all under some circumstances, and the remuneration is in no case fully or partially guaranteed by the Company.
4.12. The Account and the Pool are not intended to serve as an electronic wallet for User’s assets. In this regard, the User acknowledges that, despite the Company’s constant efforts to improve the Pool’s security against hacking and other similar attacks, these attacks occur on a regular basis, and a successful attack may result in the loss of a certain amount (or even all) of mined cryptocurrency means gathered in the Pool, which will be irreversible. In such a circumstance, neither the Company nor any other person responsible for the Pool’s operation shall be accountable to the User for the loss or theft of these means, or for the resulting inability to pay the entire remuneration.
If you contribute to the Pool – you [may] get paid. We don’t guarantee rewards to you.
You will see you rewards in your account.
Funds are paid out to your crypto wallet upon your request.
5. Pool Operation
5.1. Hiveon strives to maintain continuous, uninterrupted Pool operation so that the User can offer computer power (mine) at any moment. However, the User recognizes that the Operator does not guarantee totally uninterrupted (100%) availability of the Pool due to maintenance, repairs, or extraordinary outages.
5.2. If the Pool is unavailable due to a planned temporary maintenance shutdown, the Operator shall inform the User thereof via Website or in any other way, if possible.
5.3. The User is exclusively responsible for configuring its hardware such that it immediately reconnects to the Pool when it becomes available following a shutdown or outage. Neither the Operator nor any other party providing Pool operation is liable for any loss experienced by the User as a result of the Pool’s planned or unscheduled closure or interruption.
5.4. For suspicion of botnet use or other violations of these Terms, the Operator reserves the right to terminate the User’s access to the user account, i.e. the Pool, and thus effectively suspend the provision of computing power from the User.
5.5. The User accepts that the mining process places a high demand on the computing capability of the hardware, which can increase electricity consumption and accelerate wear on specific hardware components. The Operator is not accountable for any such charges, wear and tear, or damages.
5.6. The User carries sole responsibility for using third-party software and/or hardware.
The Pool may be lagging sometimes – we are working on it.
Only you are responsible for using your equipment and third-party products and services.
And we are not fans of bots and/or hackers, so we will kick ‘em out of the Pool.

6.1.7. will not leave the pool without making a sufficient contribution to the mutual mining of the block efforts.
6.2. Abandoning the pool by the user without making sufficient contribution to mutual mining of the block efforts leads to the loss of the computational power of the pool and shall be regarded as “pool hopping attack”.
6.2.1. The ETH pool users that have not attempted to achieve the minimum threshold for the reward payout within the last 6 months before 15 September 2022 by not contributing to the joint efforts of the mining pool members, shall not be entitled to obtain the payout. The users that mined other than ETH coins (e.g., Ravencoin, ETC) are entitled to proceed with mining and to achieve the minimum threshold for the reward payout, otherwise the accumulated amounts less than the minimum threshold shall not be payable.
6.2.2. Such rule is a necessary measure to safeguard the economic interests of the other mining pool members and to discourage the miners from abandoning the pool & withdrawing their computational power.
6.4. The following violations of the terms shall lead to banning the user’s account in the pool’s system and freezing the next payout:
6.4.1. Proxy or other similar services usage;
6.4.2. High stale share rate of the user’s account over a significant period of time;
6.4.3. High invalid share rate of the user’s account over a significant period of time;

We set some rules to make the Pool a better place in the world.
Do not use the Pool for anyone’s damage, do not break the law and do not abandon the Pool.
