Donation Fee

nuxhash will donate 0.5% of its mining time to me. If you don't like this, you may opt out by setting the flag in the configuration file (located by default at ~/.config/nuxhash/settings.conf). Currently, there are no penalties if you do so, but please consider sending me a one-time donation.
