How do I get started?
Stratum mode using Stratum Proxy v0.0.5 by dwarfpool
Download, configure and run eth-proxy
Then start your miners using the following command line
./ethminer --farm-recheck 200 -G -F
Use the following address & port as stratum server

Getwork mode using ethminer

Mining using the standard ethminer is no longer recommended. Please use one of the available stratum enabled miners!

You need to have a working ethminer installation which comes with the c++ eth version of Ethereum. For installation instructions see

To join the pool start up ethminer using the -F flag and point it to the following address<account>.<worker>/<hashrate>

<account> is your ethereum account address where the pool payments will be send to.

<hashrate> is the difficulty of the work packages you will receive from the pool. Set it by providing the hashrate of your ethminer instance in MH/s.

Full example to mine with a 10MH/s ethminer instance to address 0x4bb96091ee9d802ed039c4d1a5f6216f90f81b01:

ethminer -F -G (+ your usual options)

If you receive frequent "JSON-RPC Problem" errors try to increase your --farm-recheck value.

You should find a valid share every 1-2 minutes. If it constantly takes you longer to find a share try to lower your hashrate values (minimum is 0.1).

What is a predictable solo mining pool and why should I use it?

A predictable solo mining pool allows you to do pooled mining with a solo mining payment scheme. This means the miner who contributed the most work to the pool will receive the full reward of the found block (or uncle) and his work account (credits) will be reset to his current credits minus the credits of the runner up miner.

Which benefit does a predictable solo mining pool give compared to traditional solo mining?

Compared to traditional solo mining using this pool gives you the following advantages:

  • Huge reduction in variance. With a predictable solo mining pool you will receive your solo mining reward as soon as your contributed work credit equals the current block difficulty (+/- pool luck)
  • No local ethereum client (geth or eth) setup required
  • No network configuration required to connect multiple rigs
  • Online mining statistics and earning estimation
  • Email monitoring of worker status (work in progress)
  • Email notification of found blocks (on a per block & 24h summary basis, work in progress)
  • Be 100% sure that your mining process is working correctly
  • Reduced rate of orphaned blocks due to centralized work distribution
Do I need a pool account?
No, the pool does work with ethereum addresses and is anonymous.
What is the pool's Ethereum address?
The pools address is 0x4bb96091ee9d802ed039c4d1a5f6216f90f81b01.
What is the pool fee?
The pool fee is currenlty 1%.
What is the minimum payment amount
This is a solo mining pool. A block finder will get the full block reward. There are no minimal payment amounts.
When do the regular payments take place?
Immediately after a new block has been found.
Who pays the transaction fees?
The network transaction fees be paid by the pool.
Where do I find information on Ethereum mining?
Check out the mining section on the forum
Will the DAGs be supplied by the pool?
No, the DAGs have to be generated by the miners.
What happens if the pool geths hacked or the pool's balance gets stolen?
We try to pay out as soon as possible in order to keep the pool balance low. Using the pool is at your own risk and we cannot compensate any losses.
