Chia Plotting Services – Price Comparison

Chia Plotting Services – Price Comparison

Why plot yourself when you can buy plots online. Welcome to the world of plotting on demand services.

We have compared some of the growing number of Chia plotting services available.

Is it worth buying plots? Only you can decide that, if you do not have the high end equipment for plotting then maybe it will save you money on buying equipment. Ultimately no one yet knows the true value of the XCH token so a lot will depend on that.

How can some one else plot for me? Plotting services will plot using your PUBLIC and POOL keys. DO NOT share your PRIVATE keys.

How do i get my plots? Service come as either Cloud or Physical. Some services will supply the plots to the cloud for you download and some will fill physical hard drives for you and ship them. Physical services often offer to receive your drive or supply you a new one from their stock.

Note: We have converted prices to USD for comparison, these rates may change. Where possible we will note the currency the site uses for it’s pricing. We have also listed the prices per k32 plot (where a per TB service exists we have divided by 10 (roughly 10 plots per TB) for simplicity so there will be some small error)

We will endeavour to update this list of suppliers and their prices up to date as best we can, but please check for yourself to be sure. A comparison table is at the end of this article if you just want to see the costs compared.

NOTE: We have not tested any of these services, so you do so at your own risk. If we see or hear of any reports of scams we will do our best to update this list to remove any services we believe not to be genuine.

WARNING:  Never share your private key (24-word mnemonic) with anyone. Plotting services only require your public farm and pool keys to plot for you.
