Bitminter is one of the old mining pools from 2011.
Mining was technically difficult in the early days. A mining client had to be run from the command line. Most people don't know what a command line is. The original idea for Bitminter was for an easy-to-use graphical mining client that anyone could use. This was for mining on graphics cards initially. As client development neared completion the project eventually turned into a full mining pool which launched June 26, 2011. As the first generation USB-based ASIC miners arrived in 2013, support for some of these were also added to the Bitminter client.
Mining servers for Bitminter are available in the US, Canada and the EU.
