You will get paid once you reach the minimum payout threshold on the pool you are mining to. Each pool has different rules: different minimum payout threshold, different reward methods, and different fees. You can choose any pool for mining with minerstat, but here are the minimum thresholds for some of the more popular ETH pools:
Most of the pools automatically pay you once you reach the minimum threshold, but for some manual withdraw is needed.
You can see how much you have mined so far on the pool's official website. Open the pool's website and enter your wallet address to the search field.
Besides the balance you have mined the pool will also show you your hashrate and other mining-related information that will help you check if your mining is in order.
Minerstat shows you estimated earnings based on theoretical 100% luck. It is there so you can easier compare different coins, but not different pools. You should always check the rewards you have earned on the pool and choose a pool that fits you the best. If you have a small rig, then we suggest choosing a pool that works well with lower difficulties and has a low minimum payout threshold, so you will get your earnings faster.
You can also add your pool to pool balance monitoring and monitor your actual current balance directly from the minerstat dashboard.
If you are monitoring your balance on the pool, it should update quite frequently. Pools usually refresh data every 10 minutes or less. On minerstat balance monitoring, the balance on pools is checked and freshed twice per hour.
