Hello !

I want to share with you the project I've been working on during last months: Barrenero.

Just when I began to mining cryptocurrencies I tried to build something to improve robustness in mining, providing a real-time data and status checkers for my miners.
After this, I found that current miner software is in a continuous evolution, so I'd need a proper method for updating my miners, easy and stable.
Due to I'm mining with some mates, I chose Telegram as our communication channel, so I use it to also interact with our miners, and share the status, information and so on.

What is Barrenero?
This projects aims to create a platform to develop and use cryptocurrency miners such as Ether, Storj... The main goal is to provide a flexible and robust set of services and tools for effective mining cryptocurrencies and performs real time checks over these miners.
Code repository can be found in
The full documentation, including installation and use instructions, can be found in

Barrenero consists of following services:
  • Miner: Tools and scripts for mining cryptocurrencies, defining a self-contained image for each type of miner. Code can be found in
  • API: REST API for interacting with Barrenero, providing methods for querying miners status, restart miners, how is your miner working in a pool, wallet balance and transactions. Code can be found in
  • Telegram: Telegram bot for Barrenero that serves information and provides interactive methods through Barrenero API. Alerting when a new transaction is completed in your wallet, when a miner stops working and so on. Code can be found in

To Do
  • Create miners for other currencies, like Monero or ZCash.
  • Create public docker containers for services.
  • Add a service for sending metrics to Grafana.
  • Add a service for sending logs to Kibana.

I'm the only developer working on this project and I'm spending much of my free time on it, so if you find it useful there is many ways to help. This project is free and open sourced, you can use it, spread the word, contribute to the codebase, star it in GitHub and help us donating:
