The end of this week marks two months since the launch of Pool Mining in the NFT game. We analyzed your questions and saw that most often players aren't quite sure about how the winners are determined. So, today's post will be devoted to this topic.
As you know, the game is directly related to the bitcoin blockchain. Our system monitors the calculation of real blocks and automatically adjusts the start and end time of the rounds to match.

After closing the round, we take the real hash of the closed BTC block and convert it to a decimal value.

In parallel, we summarize all the pool scores of the clans that participated in the game. You can always find your team's value on the left side of the playing field under My Pool Score. The sum of all pool scores is the Total Score.

The system randomly distributes all pools at intervals, and then divides the hash of the bitcoin block converted to a decimal value by Total Score. The winner is the pool that contains the interval.

This is what it looks like in practice:

Assume that the converted hash will be equal to


To make the example clear, imagine that only 3 pools are fighting for victory: A, B, and C.

Clan A scored 40,000 points during the round, Clan B's Pool Score was 60,000 points, and C's score was 75,000.
Their Total Score is 175,000.

We have already said that the system distributes intervals between pools randomly, so it may happen that Pool B will be awarded an interval from 0 to 60,000, Pool A will fall into the interval from 60,000 to 100,000, and Pool C will get an interval from 100,000 to 175,000.

The converted hash, divided by Total Score in this case would be 144,064. We look at the intervals in which the pools hit. Pool C falls within the resulting remainder of the division, so they win the round.

The game will continue as long as the bitcoin blockchain works and as long as its blocks are mined by real mining pools.
