I'm new to forums, and I've only been mining for about a month. I decided to start a pool for the obvious reasons. If they aren't obvious...
  • I love to code
  • I love servers and Linux.
  • Money seems good in the pool busines (still up for debate)

At any rate, I downloaded and compiled pushpool. I was about to give Simplecoin a go but found that I had to modify parts of the actual code just to get it to run. This wasn't a very good sign. Looking through the code made me cringe a bit. The bitcoin class includes look great, and were written by a very good developer with good knowledge in OOP. Much of the rest of the application isn't as great. I don't want to offend (though I'm sure the developer is in here) but part of it appear to have been written by a cross-eyed monkey with a 2-inch paintbrush. It works, at least for some people, and it's good enough to get a site up and running, but having looked at the code, I was apprehensive about its reliability. Thus I started writing my own frontend.

I have to say that there were parts of the code that helped clue me in to some of the calculations I needed to find hashrate and such, but none of the bad code was copied. The only part I used was the bitcoin class include which simplifies working with bitcoind. It's a great file.

Have any other developers done the same thing?

Mining farm has undergone rigorous testing including a security audit to make sure their are not MySql Injection attacks.
Payouts have been tested and confirmed they work and they arn't as good as stats as Simplecoin(yet) but they give you enough to know whats going on.


Check out some websites already running mining farm:


If you decided to use miningfarm I'd be happy to assist you with any problems you require. and hey no manual editing Smiley it just works Cheesy
Skype me for anyproblems

P.S. sorry i wasn't sure if your looking for a better solution or not but I figured you could build off of my software for safe code instead that is why i posted. I didn't mean to take over your heard if you were looking for other developers to help you create mining pool software
