Website - https://www.directpool.net

Hi everyone,

Today, we are officially launching Directpool after rigorous testing and would like to welcome all miners. Directpool is the next step for a bitcoin mining pool. Directpool is not only a extremely stable and reliable pool but also a way to give back to the bitcoin community.

The main goal behind starting Directpool was that we wanted to give back to the Bitcoin community as that is the key to the future of Bitcoin itself. We have taken the initiative to fund Bitcoin related projects through any donation that may be collected at Directpool. Directpool is collaborating with Bitcoin Business Alliance (BBA) to work out a structure to handle the donations for worthy bitcoin related projects. Essentially, it'll be the miners that will decide who gets the funding. More information on this will be provided in the very near future.

Directpool

We are using a modified version of Eloipool backend software (thnx LukeJR & Whizkid).
Directpool is capable of handling even the largest of the Bitcoin mining farms - no matter the size of your hardware. The pool is running on private dedicated servers and under watch of a security admin to keep things smooth and moving. We take security extremely serious at Directpool to ensure that the miner's info and pool funds stay safe at all times.

Server Features

  • Backend:               Modified Eloipool
  • Stratum Protocal:   A stratum connection is very efficient, there is less bandwidth and fewer invalids/rejects.
  • Vardiff:                 Difficulty automatically adjust based the speed of your hardware.
  • Merged Mining:       Take advantage of earning NameCoin (NMC) while you mine Bitcoins.
  • Payment System:    PPLNS payment method for both Bitcoin and NMC.
  • PPLNS:                  The Pool fee is 1%
  • Notification:           Receive email notifications for idle workers.
  • Payouts:                Full Satoshi payout for precise withdrawals up to 8 decimals to transfer into your wallet for On-Demand/Manual payout. Automactic payouts available as well.


Website Features

  • Fresh designed Web and Mobile Interface to best display stats that are important to miners.
  • Fully integrated SSL connection.
  • DDoS protection

Please join us on our freenode IRC channel (#directpool) or by contacting us through our “Help“ widget on our website.

Thanks and Enjoy!

If you haven't already done so, you should inform Organofcorti of your new pool for his list.

That being said, is there public access to the stats? I'll likely sign up, but I wanna have a look see first.

I have informed Organofcorti. Basic stats are now visible on the signup/registration page.

Opening thread post has been updated. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=472122.msg5211811#msg5211811

Directpool is now fully functional and officially launched! Please join and support us.

Your pool is looking really great. I love the layout!! I've posted the press release from your website here https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=515834.0 I wasn't expecting this..so I have to say that i'm surprised that you guys are working with BBA to raise donations through this pool to be used for funding bitcoin startup projects... that's really good and noble in my books. Wish you all the best!! and will support you with your pool with my miners.  Cool

Hey thanks!

We are collaborating with Bitcoin Business Alliance (BBA) (http://bitcoinbusinessalliance.com) to handle any donations collected by directpool to be handled by them.

The plan is to have them accept applications from bitcoin startups looking for funds and if BBA decides that they are worthy enough, they will be put up for a voting poll at directpool.net website. Where miners will decide who the most worthy project is to be funded.

A lot more information on this will be released in the coming weeks.

Please support the pool with your miners especially if you are concerned about not enough redistribution of the total hashing power of bitcoin network.

Thanks everybody who is involved in this project and to those who will join us!!

Some nice exposure. Here you go: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=516984
You should update the "ANN" in your title to show the total pool hashspeed.

Which coins? I think that is why they attached Namecoin because its a merged mining pool, not sure though.

All of them. Currently it's possible to merge mine IXC, I0C, DVC, NMC, GRP & soon HUC (as soon as the bugs are ironed out) - might as well do the lot eh?  Wink

I had a chat with the pool dev of directpool and he basically said the reason they didn't want to add anymore coins was is because they aren't worth much at all. (Ixcoin, Devcoin, I0coin and Groupcoin) For example, in 24hrs of mining with 700gh/s, ixcoin will fetch you $0.03 only, Devcoin will fetch you $0.01... it's really not worth adding the extra load onto the pool servers. Namecoin has some worth.. but the rest don't in my opinion..

This definitely is a cool project and i'm just waiting for my neptunes to come thru and i'll be mining at directpool for sure.. 1% pool fee and donations goto helping bitcoin community grow... you can't go wrong with that   Cool

Bitcoin wasn't worth much not so long ago......but people still mined it. Now look at it.

Every little bit counts  Wink

Besides, if miners don't want the altcoins then they can be donated.......

It's true.. "every little bit counts" but this isn't a pool for all merge mine-able coins you see.. this is the bitcoin pool that is keen on keeping security in mind while making sure the pool is stable. It's a way to prevent future 51% attacks but also the best part.. to give back to the bitcoin community

+1 Here is the problem guys, this is very important. Please voice your opinion how you want; can we all agree on this? The problem is, at the current pace, either POOL A or POOL B (the name wouldn't matter in this case) because any pool will have market share and gain 51% of the network. Supporting Post (11 months ago- this was looked at with 1000+ upvotes) but today, I will remind you once again, let's protect the Bitcoin network: http://www.reddit.com/r/Bitcoin/comments/1bq4ia/for_the_love_of_bitcoin_stop_mining_at_btc_guild/c98yp2k

Quote
/r/Bitcoin Redditor: DanielTaylor Comment Karma: 302 points  Posted about: 11 months ago

It doesn't matter if they're the good guys and say they won't abuse their power. If BTC Guild reaches +50% hashing power, they'll virtually control the network, be able to create forks, double spend or paralize Bitcoin. My local banker also says he's a good guy and I shouldn't worry about him. But that's not the point because Bitcoin is supposed to be decentralized, not centralized with a good guy in charge.

For miners: Theoretically it doesn't matter where you mine, you'll eventually get the same amount of Bitcoins. (It depends a bit on the payment method of the pool, but in the end all what matters is your hashing power).

If you think MTGOX was bad news for Bitcoin recently, wait until the media slams 'Bitcoin' for another reason why it should be considered dead because there was just a 51% Attack. I will make a stand and I refuse to let this happen. Let's not wait for the last minute to act on something- consider competition as a healthy option. When was the last time you moved your hash power? if less than 3 times, why not look at some new alternatives. Even if you mine on P2Pool.org (even tho not all ASICS are compatible I hear) its just a step in the right direction, that's all.

Sure, everyone has a choice to make, but there is now reasons to move hash power equally to a pool like DirectPool.  

I predict if any POOL gains market share, this is when Bitcoin is considered dead until another pool comes in to save the day. No one thinks about these challenges prior to considering a new pool for the very reasons of being 'too comfortable' where they are at, and don't think of the future affects and challenges it can cause.

Simply point your miners to DirectPool - you have literally nothing to lose, this pool will help avoid 51% attacks and has most of the problems solved

Note: DP charges 2% less in Pool Fees vs most popular pools.

Hmmmmm.....I'm not sure that giving BTCGuild such bad press is wise - they have already proven themselves to be honest & trustworthy with regards to your proposed 51% attack, indeed, they are probably the most reputable pool out there with outstanding customer support to boot (unlike other pools I wont mention **coughcexcough**).

Anyways, as much as I like the idea of "giving back", I'll keep my hashing power with my preferred multi-merged coin mining pool. I would urge you to reconsider other merge mine-able coins though. Good luck  Wink
