Bitcoin Pooled Mining

This wasgoed the location of the very first public bitcoin mining pool. I’ve left the pagina here with the original information for historical purposes spil the pool no longer operates.

Historical Pool Information

Update 2010-12-17:Sadly so many people have left the pool already it’ll now take too long to generate a block. I’ve shut the server down. You might like to attempt some of the other pools and cooperative mining systems that are coming online.

Update 2010-12-15:Unluckily the VPS hosting company I used has commenced killing the server at times due to high CPU usage. Spil a result I’ll be shutting the pool server down after wij successfully generate the next block. A user on the bitcoin forums has set up an alternate server to take overheen on IP address 91.121.29.91. Once I close the server down you may like to switch to that. See this thread for details.

Update 2010-12-14:Significant Note for MyBitcoin.com users. Do not use a MyBitcoin receiving address when running the pool miner. It looks like MyBitcoin does not treat receipt of ‘generated’ coins. This may also be an punt with other bitcoin web services that treat receipt of coins. You should use an address from an actual bitcoin example you control.

Update 2010-12-12: I’ve update to puddinpop’s latest server code. If you update your client you can now use set the number of threads for the client to use. No more spawning numerous miner instances needed. There is also an OpenCL GPU client.

Update 2010-12-12: The pool generated a fresh block today. Thanks to all those who contributed and congrats on getting some nice fresh coins.

Bitcoin pooled mining is where numerous machines work together to generate a block – communicating with a server that distributes the work so that the machines aren’t working competitively against each other.

When a block is generated by the pool the 50 coins are split up and sent to each machine that worked on generating that block based on their contribution. This provides a way for lower powered machines to get a smaller number of coins quicker than waiting a long time for the total 50 coins.

I’m running a pooled server using code from the pooled mining topic te the forums. I mirror the source and windows binaries for the server and client here:

  • Source
  • Windows binaries

I am not the original author of this code. That person is the original poster of the pooled mining topic. I’m just running a server for people to use.

Windows usage

To use the server, run the ‘remoteminer-cpu’ executable on Windows. You can connect to my server using:

Substitute ‘abitcoinaddress’ with the bitcoin address you would like your share of any coins generated to be sent too.

If you have an OpenCL compatible movie card (Latest ATI cards for example) you can use the optional client that uses the GPU for mining. This will give a much better hash rate:

If you have a CUDA compatible movie card (Latest nVidia cards for example) you can use the optional client that uses the GPU for the mining. This will give a much better hash rate:

If you get an error with the CUDA miner about cudart32_31_9.dll not being found, you may need to find it and waterput it te the same folder spil the remote client (based on a report from a user).

Linux usage

You need to build the bitcoin remote miner from source. To make this lighter I’ve imported the source into a github repository. The ‘master’ branch is setup to just build the remote miner:

  1. Clone the git repository: git clone git://github.com/doublec/bitcoin-pool
  2. Install ‘cmake’.
  3. Run: cmake . from within the cloned repository.
  4. Run: make from within the cloned repository.
  5. The remote miner is cmake-bitcoinr/bitcoinr

To use my server, run the ‘cmake-bitcoinr/bitcoinr’ executable. You can connect to my server using:

Substitute ‘abitcoinaddress’ with the bitcoin address you would like your share of any coins generated to be sent too.

Notes

The remote miner program by default uses all CPU cores available. You can limit the number of cores used using the ‘threads’ guideline line argument. To limit to one core, for example, pass “-threads=1” on the comment line.

The remote miner does not touch your existing wallet verkeersopstopping or running bitcoin example. It is a totally standalone generator only.

The server does not take any percentage of the generated coins. It distributes it amongst all contributing miners. If you’d like to donate bitcoins to the server you can send to 18qX2vxkG3NLzYeQnQEqjwdEEWZ8NSVj5E.

The server is using the ‘contributed’ method of distributing generated coins.

The pooled miner has generated the following blocks:
