What exactly do I need to do to make a mining pool with my Raspberry Pi 2? I am looking for an easy to setup software to get everything up and running. A Bitcoin mining pool would be great, but if there is also one for alt coins, then please let me know where or how I could get started.  Smiley

Setting up a mining pool on Pi2 or setting up for example BGFminer on Pi2 to miner with for example  Antimner U3 via USB.

I dont know anyone that is running a mining pool on a Pi.  Bitcoin/Altcoin nodes yes but pool with i dont think so. To setup a mining pool get a proper server , plan your pool operation, it would also help if you wrote how many miners you want to have connecting or you just want a pool for yourself, if its a solo case than you dont need a pool and jest setup solo mining.

But do not that there is a tinny chance you will solve a block on your own in maybe 2000 years Smiley

Have fun!

Thanks for your reply. After some research, I have just decided to setup a mining rig instead with my RPi 2 with a couple of antminers connected to it via usb. Then I would set up a web mining dashboard to monitor my mining gear each day. I have found this very useful. You can check it out here: https://getminera.com/

You didn't mention the kind of Antminer's, but I would also encourage you to consider one or more of the Gecko Science Compac miners. Very adjustable, way faster than and Antminer U2, and very stable. Antminer U3's have a poor reputation for stability.

Just my two cents.

Sorry, I forgot to mention which I would use for this setup. Now that you mention it, I will connect 1 Antminer S3 + Antminer U2. Also, the Gecko Science Compac miners look very interesting to use for mi RPis. I'll take a look into it. Thank you for your reply.

you should either look for lower priced electricity, or a model of them with lower power consumption; such as S7, however if you bought it early, then you would probably need a few more months to break even. as well as using raspberry pi 3 instead of 2 if you wanna create a rig once again using them.

using U2 is not the best choice AFAIK, U3 is much better.

out of ability to use the signature, i want a new ban strike policy that will fade the strike after 90~120 days of the ban and not to be traced back, like google | email me for anything urgent, message will not be instantly responded
i am not really active for some reason

Thanks for the advice. I am currently saving some money to get myself at least an S7 + RPi3 but in the meantime, I would just stake coins into my RPi as I think that I will earn a lot more with it than using my current mining setup. I think that I will leave the RPi2 24/7 just for this task.  Cheesy
