Would anyone in the mining community be interested in a pool offering that basically allowed you to have your own pool for solo mining? I have been tossing the idea around in my head and wanted to see if there was any interest.

The service would basically allow you to setup your own pool at a sub-domain of your choice (or maybe your own domain), pick your payout variant (prop, pplns, smpps) and whether to allow others to register. There would be some basic styling options for the header and killer visualization of your data through better charting and reporting (which is my specialty). Anyone could sign up and mine with just their friends or try to run a profitable pool through signing up for the service.

Does something like this already exist? Am I missing something in the complexity of such a service?

Would you be willing to pay for such a service? If so, how much? With the difficultly coming down and the pain of not really knowing what's going on when your solo mining, I though this might be a good offering to develop for the community.

EDIT:

Features:

- Your pool keeps transaction fees along with the entire BTC released from the block after 120 confirms.
- Add your donation address to your website along with a other textual / visual changes.
- Customize the header of your pool's public facing website.
- Stats for your pool are not intermingled with other pools on the system.
- Multiple payment plans to suite solo mining and others wanting to market and grow a pool.
- Redundancy at the pool software, database and web tiers.

Interesting. Seems they have a multiple pool concept but they are taking 1% for a jackpot and payback to pool owners. I am not sure I would go this route. They also show the stats of all pools in one display on their site. What do you think of their approach?

I just started so I dont have many bitcions, I would be willing to chip in like 5.  If you get a bunch of people to do it, it might be worth your while.  Thanks.

I am sure you can setup pushpoold / simplecoin if you are a web developer. I am thinking of a more "done for you" solution that can quickly get someone less technical up and running in minutes instead of days. I have seen multiple threads that attest to the sleepless nights that are needed to get a pool up and running.

I am thinking that there is a product here that can help with these pain points...

Thoughts?

Well, I can tell you that if I had a personal pool,  I might solo mine.  but running many puter and paying for elec without seeing any progress is difficult.  I lasted about 8 hours last time I tried to solo.

I would be interested.

I'm glad to hear it. Would you be willing to pay for the pleasure of using such software. If so, would you want to wait until you found a block to pay or would you pay in $$$ on a per month basis?

I have been tossing around the idea, hence the post. I want to do things a bit differently as in provide the tech / hardware / redundancy for a fixed monthly fee and let the pool operator market their pool as they please.

With the interest thus far, there does not seem to be a big market for something like this.

I think for those who want to start with a pool there is probably alot more behind the scene
To me it sounds good but at present for me its no use to enter the mining at all, with current energy prices.
I think when either bitcoins get more profitable or a solution can be found to lower energy costs i probably would be willing to go into your offer.
You biggest problem is that at this moment interrest in bitcoin is low and will stay that for a while untill trust has been restored
Again i see future in bitcoins if more companies adopt it and gets clear how governements will act on them later.

I would be interested. However, I would rather pay when blocks are found.

Or pay a reduced monthly fee, then when a block is found/solved pay an additional fee.

This way for those that dont have significantly less hashing power are able to keep the expense down, considering the probability of finding a block

What kind of fees to you think is fair for a service like this?
