Gridcoin Pool Instructions:

- Note: The pool is in alpha so I recommend pointing an extra instance of cgminer at it
until we have it debugged.
- The main difference between a traditional pool and the gridcoin pool is this pool requires the gridcoin-qt
client to authenticate to the pool (in order to send boinc information over SSL) before you can mine.
Gridcoin QT will do this on every re-start and once every 30 minutes, and also when you push the "re-authenticate"
button.  You can also go to mining | pools and push that button (going to be used for a future purpose when more pools
exist).
- This pool does not require a block to be found before you start accruing payments.
- Once every 30 minutes we will repopulate the leaderboard to show progress of all miners.
- Once per day, the pool does a currency sweep; it sends all of the payments earned to the individual accounts.
 Withdrawals are done by the user.
- You can see your progress by going to Account and refresh the page.
- Modify CGMiner with the following settings to connect to the pool:
{
  "pools" : [
      {
          "url" : "http://pool.gridcoin.us/Getwork.aspx?user=yourweb_miner_usernamehere&pass=your_miner_password",
      "user":"thisdoesnotmatterbutneedstobehere", "pass":"lol"
     }
],
"api-listen" : true,
"api-port" : "4001",
"api-allow" : "W:127.0.0.1",
"intensity" : "17",
...

- Add 3 lines to your gridcoin config:
pooluser=your_web_username **Note: This is the master web account in the pool, NOT the miner account name!
poolpassword=your_web_password
poolurl=http://pool.gridcoin.us 
To test these settings, go into gridcoin to mining | Pools and click Authenticate, it should show success or fail.

Best of Luck Mining!

Rob H.

Questions:

1) How do we configure cgminer if we launch via .bat or command line...? Do we need all the api-listen, api-port, api-allow stuff, because I have no idea what flags to use from the command line for that.

2) Are web_miner_username and pooluser the same thing...? If not, Do I choose my own web_miner_username and pooluser name or are there specific ones I should be using...?

3) Is the miner_password the same as the web_password...? If not, do I choose my own passwords for each one or are there specific nes I should use...?


Thanks!


Hi Bob,

Although you may be able to squeeze all that in to the command line, I would recommend something easier first.  Set up the gridcoinpool in the cgm0 file, (and also if you want you can add a second pool with your loopback as a fallback for pool resiliency).  Then make the bat file execute c:\%appdata%\cgminer0\cgminer.exe -c cgm0.

2) No; the web user & pass allows gc to send all your boinc info to the pool for the leaderboard; the miner user & pass authenticates the instance of the miner (so we can keep track of share submits per worker).  So you have to send your worker user & pass in the URL.  You choose your own.  The pool will enforce the unique constraint so don't worry about picking a bad one.  In the future we should have "webusername.workername" like other pools, but for now its enforced as unique on the server side.

Have a great one!

Hey Rob,

Is the cpumining beacon working fine with encrypted wallets now?

If it is encrypted it still has to be unlocked for the beacons to send.

No not yet; although you make a good point, we may be able to unlock it, send the beacon and lock it; but I have never looked into that.

the gridcoin-qt download link is not working on front page
It works for me; which link the MSI correct?

BTW, anyone downloading and receiving lower than 1.1.6.5 is due to your machine having a cached version.
Delete the program dir, reinstall, and click Repair.

Or you can always do the Upgrade from the rpc.

Can you have twice the fun, i.e. mine Gridcoins with BOINC running and get both extra GRCs and Ripples via the community grid project?
You used to be able to, but both Ripple and Gridcoin would like you to be a member of their own respective team.
So the only way now is to belong to different teams per project, which is possible, but of course you would be earning less RAC per project.

small issue to report:  when you have sync issues the wallet will go into a 'safe mode'.  The issue is that the debug console seems to not let you do commands when it is in this state.  When I type 'upgrade' in the console it gives a safe mode error message code -2 and doesn't execute the upgrade.  I think you should still be able to execute the upgrade command at least, even in the 'safe mode'.
Hi,
Yes its due to the bitcoin supermajority rule, if you are out of sync even after you upgrade you stay in safe mode.
There are 2 solutions:
1) The most effective works 90% of the time:
cd c:\program files (x86)\gridcoin
grcrestarter -upgrade
This forces an upgrade.  Wait for chain to sync.  Safe mode should go away.

If and only if that does not work, then rebuild the block chain (this is usually never required).

Good luck,
Grid

Hi Rob,

First let me say that you are doing an awesome work with Gridcoin.

I have being trying the new pool but I found something that I think it's not right, the pool is paying accordantly to shares submitted and is counting the overall shares since first day when we enter the pool, that makes very hard to climb our earnings and it's an disadvantage to someone entering the pool for the first time, or am I seeing something wrong?

Other thing is I can't get the scrypt sleep working for my GPU's If I select use always GPU on Boinc it will use them all the time even when they are at work, if I select never use GPU when scrypt sleep comes it will not process Boinc projects what am I missing were?

Thank you,

João G.
Hi João,
Im glad you like the pool, thanks.
On scrypt sleep, weve been trying to ensure a smooth start and after the last release moved it to 74000.  (The release notes were wrong).  

On the pool newbie payments, the original intent was to base the pool on a 7 day lookback period (assessed off of last_seen), to give everyone pool competition who finds blocks.
The code does pay newbies based on 1 block divided by submissions, and I realize now that I see the stats they are really getting tiny amounts.

I will look into something more fair for newbies, maybe splitting 7% of the pool over the newbies instead of 1 block.
But anyway, I think the 7 day lookback itself is more fair for people finding blocks, as it is impossible to defraud the pool when you have mined blocks vs share submissions (ie higher integrity).

Yes, I'm using Boinc with a sempron and still getting 90-130 coins a day.

is there any guide to run it through terminal? And can you tell me what cpu project you have chosen?

Edit: makefile.unix gives me those errors:

Hallo,

I've a problem. My Gridcoin client don't send Beacon since over 24 hrs and don't recieve coins from CPU mining. 2 days before the clint worked normally, I send beacons and recieved coins normally. I don't changed anything on my system.
In the gridcoin.log I found a lot of this error messages:

LOL That would be great, a cryptocurrency beats the U.S Air Force in Boinc credits, I can't wait for that day. I will take out a full page add in the local newspaper to announce the event!

I have a little request. Change please BOINC team flag from USA to International. Thanks!

Yes, I did get ahold of Rom Walton from Berkeley, he updated the Country and said it will take time to propogate.


I'm seeing it now. Thanks for doing that.

We're in 215th place among the international teams atm, a little behind the Intel Employees team (for now).    Smiley

Yeah!  I think we will be able to pass Texas A&M, but getting past the US Air Force (World position #51) is going to be tough!
