p2pool.io - http://p2pool.io/

To connect, simply point your miner to: p2pool.io, port 9332, and set the username as your Bitcoin address to receive payouts. You can use any password.
Code:
stratum+tcp://p2pool.io:9332 -u btc_address -p 123


Cluster Features
  • 1% Fee
  • Newark, NJ, USA Based
  • Load-balanced, high availability, P2Pool cluster
  • Variable Difficulty
  • User Defined Custom Difficulty
  • Automatic Payouts
  • Stratum Protocol Support
  • No signup required

Payment Methods
  • PPLNS
  • Payments are generation transactions. This means fresh, never before used, coins. Smiley

User Defined Custom Difficulty
  • To set a difficulty rate of your own choosing, simply append the desired value onto the end of your Bitcoin username. For example, to use a custom difficulty of 128, one would use the following:
Code:
stratum+tcp://p2pool.io:9332 -u btc_address+128 -p 123

    Most Common Difficulty Values
    1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, 2048


    Background
    I have setup a cluster of P2Pool instances which are all load balanced. You can now simply setup your miner to point to one domain name, one port, and you use your Bitcoin address as your username. No registration is needed, and any password will work. Just like running your own instance of P2Pool, payouts are using PPLNS so it will take a little bit of time for things to ramp up, but mining will start instantly!

    The website for p2pool.io uses a fully custom API based off the native P2Pool API. This means the stats that you see on the homepage are for the entire p2pool.io cluster.

    Visit and mine with us today @ http://p2pool.io

    Thanks,

    Hi Acejam, I was testing your pool last night and my btc wallet address is 1Pcbp3KBsJuSqNCJBgqtUMXe6UjRhHB8f. I was hashing at well over 1THS for several hours but kept seeing the expected share and block times fluctuating back and forth, up and down. And I had no indication whether my work was going to be credited to me at any point, so I stopped mining there. Can you tell me whether or not my work will still be credited? I believe I was mining there for about 6-8 hours or so. Thanks for your time and considerate reply. Cheers, Gil...

    Only if you got a share.  It works exactly like www.nogleg.com/doge.log, look at the share difficulties, scan for 'GOT SHARE', etc.

    I really have no idea if 1TH on the p2pool network is a lot nowadays or not.  You could possibly not have gotten any shares, though...

    no-submit-stale isn't a great idea, since there's still some chance that that stale could solve a block (or be a valid p2pool share)

    I've been mining in this pool to test how it works. I was getting some shares, until sometime today. Even though I've mining with an avg of 47-48 Gh/s for more than a week, I am now showing "no shares yet" as predicted payout. I don't remember seen that except for the first couple of hours after I started mining. Is that normal?

    Seems like something's wrong:

    [2014-06-15 11:53:12] Accepted 2980ecd3 Diff 1.58K/1000 BAJ 0

    0.00 H/s   0.00%   no shares yet

    There were no blocks between 11:44 and 12:04.
    So, those stats are fishy.

    Why the frell so many retards spell "ect" as an abbreviation of "Et Cetera"? "ETC", DAMMIT! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Et_cetera

    @m3ta

    See my previous post, #8 on this thread. That's why I switched to other p2pool. I would suggest you to look @ http://p2pool-nodes.info/ for a pool with 0% fee and low latency and confirm that you also have low latency against it (e.g. ping response lower than 200ms) and use that one.

    Without knowing your address, I can't lookup any of your stats. What I can say that is that it's not uncommon for miners under 50-75 GH/s or so to have share trouble on P2Pool. Latency can also be an issues depending on your location.

    The hash rate of P2Pool has also gone up significantly within the past 2 weeks. This can also affect your earnings.

    Can you PM me your address? Did you try refreshing the page?

    I have a custom backend running to combine stats of all my nodes since this is a cluster. I'm wondering if you have perhaps found a simple front-end reporting bug. It should be noted that I'm using "out of the box" P2Pool code for mining operations. I simply take the stats provided at each API and combine them. (which is what you see on the homepage)

    Hi all,

    I would like to thank everyone for their continued support. p2pool.io has been making great progress in the last few weeks. We recently gained some Reddit exposure which has led to a big leap in hashrate. As a result, I have been receiving tons of PM's and messages from users. (Mostly happy!) I would encourage everyone to continue to send me their feedback - positive or negative! I want to hear it!

    We are currently hovering around 15-20 TH/s, but we had a peak of 60 TH/s earlier last week. Right now we're also the top node on http://p2pool-nodes.info/.

    One of my goals is to help try and get P2Pool back on to blockchain.info's pool graph. Even if we can get P2Pool back to a 1-2% share, that would be a great start!

    Thanks,
    Acejam

    Thank you so much for providing this service; great work.

    Quick question: Currently, the "node uptime" is 2 hours and 20 minutes. Did the service go down 2 hours and 20 minutes ago, and if so, why didn't the load balancing keep the service up and running?

    Thanks again for providing such an easy way for miners to join p2pool.

    Great catch!

    I recently updated the P2Pool software of each server in the cluster. Previously our uptime was 50+ days on most servers. However, that also means those servers were running code that was more than 50 days old. One-by-one, each server was taken out of the load balancer pool, updated, tested, and then put back in. I can assure you there was no downtime during this process.

    The stats on the pool homepage are combined stats. However the "Node Uptime" value is not combined. Otherwise, if the entire cluster was up for 7 days, that value would read 7 days x the number of servers. Perhaps I can add support in for this to take an average value?
