Title: Question regarding solo.ckpool.org
Post by: bmoscato on September 12, 2020, 10:29:10 PM
Is solo.ckpool.org still the best option for people using outdated mining equipment for lottery mining?

It isn't the only option, there are a few, even some of the large pools allow you to mine on solo-mode, there are a few others multi-coins pools that will allow you to solo mine just about all POW coins, but those pools are either hard to trust or hard to set-up, which makes solo.ckpool.org the best option for solo mining even with all the issues it faced in the past, which I hope that we won't encounter again in the future after the server upgrade.

Not to mention -ck is one of the most experienced and capable contributors to Bitcoin mining software.  If you're looking to mine Bitcoin and you want to support the OGs in the space, solo mining with -ck or pool mining with slush are great options.
