TheSeven's PPCoin Pool

I'm pleased to finally announce the official launch of my new PPCoin pool!
The web site is mostly finished now, just some more explanations still missing.


  • Stratum
  • No registration!
  • 2% fee
  • ESMPPS reward model (low variance)
  • PPLNS reward model (if you like that better)
  • Optional: payout after only 12 confirmations
  • Dynamically adjusting difficulty
  • All new pool server software
  • JSONRPC API for statistics

You can find the pool at:

2  Bitcoin / Mining software (miners) / Modular Python Bitcoin Miner - Official Thread on: February 06, 2012, 04:10:15 PM
    Modular Python Bitcoin Miner

    The Modular Python Bitcoin Miner is a very flexible mining software written in Python, aiming to unify the frontend of FPGA-based mining hardware.


    • Runs on Python 2.6+ / 3.0+
    • Very flexible, to allow for all kinds of weird mining hardware and future mining pool protocols
    • Multi-pool support (load balancing or failover, configurable)
    • Multi-worker support
    • Worker hotplug support
    • Web interface
    • All UI functions available through JSON API
    • Can easily handle clusters of tens of gigahashes, dependinding on the board type

    Supported devices

    • Simple RS232-based interface, as a starting point for interface developers
    • X6500 FPGA mining board (no need for D2XX driver!)
    • Icarus board
    • ZTEX boards
    • Butterfly Labs (BFL) BitFORCE Single
    • ...more to follow!
    • Feel free to implement your own one!
    • Board vendors: Contact TheSeven with an offer (e.g. a board for testing) if you want your board to be added!



    • 2012-03-26: v0.1.0beta released
    • 2012-03-22: Testing branch almost ready to be released for production use
    • 2012-03-21: Added ztex board support to testing branch
    • 2012-02-09: Added experimental support for Icarus board
    • 2012-02-06: Initial public beta release (v0.0.4beta)

    • Coming soon...

    • Donations to 13NuRX6rdE4Do4vddzhfKK7FqmGSTMcjYh are gratefully accepted Grin
    • Or, even better, donate a small share of your mining power to the MPBM authors by leaving the demo pool entries in the default configuration file enabled

    3  Bitcoin / Mining / Best open source mining software? on: June 03, 2011, 04:58:23 PM
    I'm looking for a mining client which meets the following criteria:
    • Open source
    • Allows easy integration of new mining methods (FPGA in my case)
    • Runs on Linux, and ideally on Windows as well
    • Written in a sane programming language, preferably Python
    • Supports long polling
    • Supports falling back to another pool in case of outages, without first waiting for the pool to repond for several minutes
    • Pushpool support would be a plus

    Which software would you suggest?

    If this can't be achieved with a single piece of software, I'd consider a stack of a "dumb" mining software and a clever proxy for it as well.
