Mining Pool Configuration
A mining pool can be defined in Awesome Miner and be used from multiple miners. To create a new mining pool, use the button New pool... in the toolbar. Pools can also be created from the Options dialog, Pools section, where they also can be modified and removed. For more information on how to define a single pool in Awesome Miner and use it with unique worker names for multiple miners, please see the guide about Pool worker name configuration . The final section of this guides describes how to define Pool Groups . Configuration according to the LitecoinPool web site. stratum+tcp://litecoinpool.org:3333Username: your_username.1Password: 1 The pool configuration is illustrated in Awesome Miner below. Configuration according to the Nicehash web site. For most algorithms (Ethereum and a few more are exceptions), Nicehash expects your Bitcoin wallet address to be specified as the username/worker name in the Pool configuration. Optionally a unique worker name can be specified after the Bitcoin wallet address. Examples with Claymore Etheruem Dual miner The examples below are for the Claymore Etheruem Dual miner. Please also refer to the Bitcointalk thread about Claymore Etheruem Dual miner , as it contains both a complete description of all parameters for the Claymore miner and many more examples similar to those listed below. The pool configuration for Ethereum mining differs between the mining pools, making it a bit more difficult to configure correctly. It's important to follow the exact instructions on the pool web site about when the Worker name and Wallet address fields should be used. Configuration according to the Ethpool web site: EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool eu1.ethpool.org:3333 -ewal
How To Make An Ethereum Mining Pool
You will also need the following tools on your computer: A tool like WinSCP may be helpful, but is not required Open up putty and log into your VPS as the root user. Create a new, non root user and give it sudo access. Then, log in as your new user. Never log in as root again. Run the following shell commands to update Ubuntu: sudo apt-get updatesudo apt-get dist-upgrade dd if=/dev/zero of=/mnt/myswap.swap bs=1M count=4000mkswap /mnt/myswap.swapswapon /mnt/myswap.swap Next, edit the file nano /etc/fstab, and add the following line to the end of the file: apt-get install git -yapt-get install build-essential libtool autotools-dev autoconf pkg-config libssl-dev -yapt-get install libboost-all-dev git npm nodejs nodejs-legacy libminiupnpc-dev redis-server -yapt-get install libdb4.8-dev libdb4.8++-dev -yapt-get install golang -yapt-get install nginx -y First, we need to let Linux know that Ethereum exists so it can install it for us. To do this, run these commands: sudo apt-get install software-properties-common -ysudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:ethereum/ethereumsudo apt-get update And finally, to install and start the node: sudo apt-get install ethereumgeth account newgeth This is really the home stretch! Let's compile the pool software: git config --global http.truegit clone open-ethereum-poolmake Configuration is very easy with this pool: simply edit config.json using nano like you did before. All settings should be clear and documented. ./build/bin/open-ethereum-pool config.json At this point, you should have a working pool up and running, but we want a web interface, don't we? Enter the www directory (cd www), and change "ApiUrl: '//example.net/'" to match your domain name. Change the other options to your environment too.

Beginner's Guide To Ethereum Mining In 2017 - How To Mine Ethereum On Your Pc?
Last updated on August 15th, 2017 at 11:06 pm Getting Started with Ethereum Mining the video guide The good news is that getting started with Ethereum Mining is now easier than ever. You do not need to download the full Ethereum blockchain, which is now over 20+ GBs and still growing! You also do not need to manage clunky command line miners with manual instructions. For purposes of this guide, we are going to do a detailed walk-through of setting up and using the very popular Claymore Miner. Get the current version here from Claymores original Bitcointalk thread and then follow along with the steps in this video. The whole process of getting a wallet setup, downloading your miner, configuring things in Windows and setting up your batch file to run should take less than 10 minutes: If youre new to mining Ethereum , this guide covers all the important facts in a simple, low-jargon way. Lets start with some short answers to common questions about Ethereum mining: Q: Whyshould Imine Ethereum tokens (aka ether or ETH)? doesnt mining Ether take up a lot of electricity? A: If done properly, more money is earned by selling mined ETH than is spent on electricity. In other words, its profitable! You can check out the profitability with our Ethereum mining calculator . Q: Can I mine with my CPU (Personal computersprocessor) instead ofan expensive graphics card (GPU)? A: GPUs are so much faster that CPU-mining is no longer profitable or worthwhile. Even entry-level GPUs are about 200 times faster than CPUs for mining purposes. Q: Whats the best GPU to use for getting the most ETH for the least electricity? A: AMD cards tend to edge out similarly-priced NVidia cards in terms of efficiency. We cover the best cards to get under the heading GPU Hardware further down in this post. Q: Continue reading >>
Ethereum Pool Mining - Here You Will Find Everything You Need To Know!
Teamwork is essential. If a lot of miners connect to a pool, a high number of computing power is brought together. If a block is found then, each miner receives a piece of the Ether. Your share depends on the amount of computing power, you bring into the pool. Ether Mining in a pool, brings several advantages. You can also be a part of Ether Mining with little computing power and still receive some Ether or Finney (1 Ether = 1000 Finney). This would not be possible with Ether Solo Mining. Ether Pool Mining also eliminates the risk of coming away empty-handed. You do not have to download the Blockchain for Pool Mining. This way, you can save memory space and a lot of time of course. The disadvantages of Ether Pool Mining are rather small. There is a Pool fee which is 1% in most cases. Many Ether Mining Pools are not very transparent. So it is unclear, who is behind a Pool and what happens behind the scenes. We have tested several Ether Mining Pools. In the course of this, we have found that Dwarfpool is the most profitable one. However, there are also numerous other very good Ether Pools. You can find a list of the best Ether Mining Pools here: Ether Mining Statistics . In the following, we will show you what is necessary for a successful start of Ether Pool Mining with Windows in Dwarfpool. etherminer: You can find the current version here: Download ethminer (= cpp-Ethereum) Create a new folder on data carrier (C:) and name it Ethermining (if you have not done it yet for our Ether Solo Mining Instruction). Download both programmes and install Ethminer. Choose the new folder Ethermining as a memory location. After successful installation, you can find the file Ethereum in the file Ethermining. You only have to unpack the Stratum Proxy after the Download. Drag and Drop t Continue reading >>
[guide] Setup Your Own Ethereum Mining Pool.
[GUIDE] Setup your own Ethereum mining pool. I have created a guide on how to create your own Ethereum mining pool for a single crypto-currency (not a multipool). I tried to make it as novice friendly as possible and explain every step. All you really need is a very, very basic knowledge of Linux and some patience. I feel like it's important for crypto that more people are capable of running a mining pool, or at least have the knowledge of it. All the software used in the guide is free/open source. I will try and create more guides as time goes on. I will also support the guides I currently have, so feel free to ask any questions pertaining to the guide. Anybody else that is knowledgeable with mining pool software, or linux feel free to help other users.

Ethereum Mining Pools - Cryptoground
After setting up your Ethereum Mining hardware, software and wallet - essentially, after creating your Ethereum Mining Rig, the last thing that you need to do is to join a mining pool. Ethereum Mining Pools are really important. However, before we dig deeper into this, let us quickly refresh our memories as to what a mining pool is and why is it important: A mining pool is basically a group of individuals who come together to mine a cryptocurrency. Basically, even after you set up your mining rigs, it is not necessary that you will be making major profits. The fact of the matter is that when mining alone, youre bound to make slower returns compared to when youre mining with other miners. Mining Pools make use of the combined mining power of all the miners to mine for cryptocurrencies, and all the reward is shared between the users as per the agreements. Let us now take a closer look at the topic at hand - Ethereum Mining Pools: Ethereum Mining pools are formed when a group of users pool their resources together and begin to mine for ethereum. The profits are shared by the users based on the amount of work done by each user. Before you join a pool you would need two things Ethereum mining hardware: with which you will mine for Ethereum Ethereum Wallets: where you would store your Ethereum Things To Keep in Mind Before You Join an Ethereum Mining Pool: While this idea of joining hands with other miners to mine faster and get more regular rewards seems exciting, there are a number of things that users need to keep in mind before they progress with it. Let us take a quick look at all the factors that need to be kept in mind before choosing the best ethereum mining pool. The first thing that you need to keep in mind is - is the pool that you are joining trustworthy. There a Continue reading >>
Setup Your Own Private Proof-of-authority Ethereum Network Withgeth
Setup your own private Proof-of-Authority Ethereum network withGeth geth 1.8 was released a few days after this guide was published and fortunately does not break anything. This post is then valid and was tested for both geth 1.7.3 and geth 1.8. Awesome:) Ive learned a posteriori that the gas limit per block is dynamic . Therefore Ive updated the section 2.3 to give more information about this particular case. In my private network where blocks are most of the time empty, I dont what the gas limit to decrease at all! Clique requires int(N/2+1) sealers (where N is the number of sealers defined in the genesis file in extraData field) to be online in order to run. N=2 is the minimum accepted. See Chapter 4 for more details. Goal: step by step guide to help you setup a local private ethereum network using the Proof-of-Authority consensus engine (also named clique). In a nutshell: we will setup two nodes on the same machine, creating a peer-to-peer network on our localhost. In addition to the two nodes, a bootnode (discovery service) will also be setup. It took me quite some time and extensive research and googling to finally have a solid ethereum development environment for testing my smart contracts and my DApps. In this post, Ive decided to share how I am setting a Proof-of-Authority network using the clique consensus engine of Geth. Its my way to thank the community by giving back and hopefully making life easier for anyone willing exploring the Ethereum universe. My OS is Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (this tuto was done in a fresh virtual machine). For the Ethereum client, I am using Geth (the Go implementation of the Ethereum protocole). I believe that Geth is easy to install with plenty of great tutorials out there, so I am not gonna cover any installation here. I am currently r Continue reading >>

How Do I Create And Manage My Own Mining Pool?
I realize that there are already answers to the question , but I don't think they are detailed enough. For my use case, I have 4-5 gaming PCs, some desktop and some laptop, laying around the house. I would like to create my own pool and put them all to work. A previous answer states that you simply run geth on a master machine and then run ethminer on your other machines which are pointing to the master. That's great, but how do the other machines know which account they are mining for? Also, is there a way to track productivity on a per-machine basis. I would like to know how much output I am getting from each machine. In the "just run geth" method, the geth program is told which Ethereum account should receive block rewards. This is known as the etherbase. Thus, when geth generates data for hashing, the work sent to miners implicitly includes this information. In fact, the mining software doesn't even need to explicitly determine what account is being credited! For extra security, your geth node doesn't need to have the private key for account being credited, either. This can be done by adding the --etherbase option for geth (the command in the referenced answer is otherwise unchanged). This method really is as simple as the other post states. One command to start geth on the "master" computer and another command to tell the mining computers where to get work from. If you want to track productivity per-machine, you can use pool software such as . This software includes step-by-step instructions for setting it up on the Ubuntu operating system. You can run it from inside a virtual machine if you don't want to run Ubuntu as your primary operating system. This particular pool software connects to a running geth instance to figure out the current state of the blockchain Continue reading >>

How To Setup A Mining Pool?
i am a crypto lover, and quite new to the blockchain. anybody know how to build a mining pool? I'm studying P language and hope to find some good tutorial from you. i am a crypto lover, and quite new to the blockchain. anybody know how to build a mining pool? I'm studying P language and hope to find some good tutorial from you. Pretty decent tutorial basis are mostly the same depending on the coin. Yes! I think this is very useful source that i can learn. You know investing in Crypto is one part, but i really want to get in deeper. For example build this kind of model : I think yiimp based pools are the most common, and some of them have lots of nice extras like explorer and even benchmarks. There was an ugly security issue in yiimp not that long ago, I don't have the details, but make sure you find a fork that have a fix for that. They support most coins except cryptonote based ones. and i think i can start to build something for DeepOnion from my beginning. Yes! I think this is very useful source that i can learn. You know investing in Crypto is one part, but i really want to get in deeper. For example build this kind of model : If you see at the footer there, you find a link to the source code it is built from, on github. --- Double Post Merged, Jan 25, 2018, Original Post Date: Jan 25, 2018 --- I see the updated one, now i try to learn it.

How To Connect To An Ethereum Mining Pool?
How to connect to an Ethereum mining pool? Ethereum mining is best done by joining a mining pool so that there is a steady stream of Ether's into your wallet and in this guide we will show you a step by step process to do just this. In our "How to Mine Ethereum on a Windows PC" we showed you how to install all the software to get your computer mining with its graphics card and failing that, with its CPU. However this isn't the whole process, as when you mine on your own the chance of finding a block is incredibly small considering the total amount of hashing power in the network - so the best option is to join a mining pool to smooth the volatility of returns - you can read about the benefits of joining a bitcoin or ethereum mining pool here . Step 1: If you have gone through our guide here on how to set up your computer to mine ethereum you are most of the way there - in fact all you need is an address which you can get from the EthDev wallet - which is basically a nice interface to doing exactly the same process. The reason you need a wallet or address is to tell the pool where to pay your money! You don't need to sync the blockchain - the mining pool provider will do this for you! Step 2: Once you have an address you need to start ethminer - and if you haven't installed this you can do so by following the section. 2.1Now you need to download Ethminer which makes your GPU or CPU run the hashing algorithm that is integral to securing the Ethereum network through proof of work. You can download this here and be sure to scroll down to the bottom of the page to get the right version - the latest and most up to date one is right at the end. 2.2 Click on the download and click install. Your firewall can cause issues but just click allow if it does so - the same is true of Continue reading >>
How To Make Ethereum Mining Pool?
Ethereum is one of the popular altcoins which has been giving a tough competition to Bitcoin , its forefather. Not only is it easy to mine, but at the same time, it generates better revenues than Bitcoin. This guide provides an insight into Ethereum mining pool and how you can go ahead and create a mining pool of your own. To create a mining pool, the very first thing that you will require is a good VPS hosting provider. The basic requirements are as follows: At the same time, you will be needing the below-mentioned tools on your PC: A tool such as WinSCP may be used but is not mandatory Open puTTY and sign in as the root user to VPS. Create a new, non-root user and then provide it with sudo access. Subsequently, sign in as the new user. Do not log in as the root user again.
