The USA Pool of Foundry, a subsidiary of CoinDesk parent Digital Currency Group, focuses on institutional mining businesses and integrates with cryptocurrency prime broker Genesis, another DCG-owned company, to provide treasury management services. Foundry USA is the first North American pool to offer the Full-Pay-Per-Share (FPPS) payout method without relying on an external party. FPPS pays miners the expected block reward from bitcoin plus the associated transaction fees. In return, the pool operator is paid a small fee. Foundry USA’s major customers include Bit Digital, Hive, Greenidge and Foundry itself.
