1  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: Bitminter bitcoin mining pool - shutdown mining 2020-07-01 website 2021-06-01 on: June 15, 2020, 04:45:58 AM
Is Bitminter the last 2011-pool to shut down? Or are there any pools from 2011 still running?

2011 was a year a lot of Bitcoin pools started. Not sure how many it was, but it was quite a few.


2011 pools listed on https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Comparison_of_mining_pools: Eligius (closed), P2Pool (still up?), BitMinter (closing July 1, 2020), BTCMP (closed)

I mined 2013-present first (and last!) on BitMinter, with lots in the middle on GHash (closed) and Eligius (closed).

I am sad to see this happen.  I mined my first 0.01 BTC on BitMinter in September of 2013.  I keep a set of 20 Antminer U2s on my desk pointed at the pool even today.  Thank you for providing a pool so accessible during the critical nascent explosion of this marvelous new technology.  Sad to see it close, but if there are not enough miners using the pool, it seems like the only reasonable choice. [New account because previous one (canford) was hacked years ago.]
