What are the associated costs for running a mining pool?

Would really like to get an idea of the actual costs of being a pool provider, whether that be software, employees, etc. Sparked my interest as Foundry runs a pool with a 0% fee which I can't imagine is sustainable long term (even though I know they offer other services).

So do you have a plan to make a mining pool?

It won't cost anything if you run a mining pool with your own PC there are open source code out there called Yiimp you can find it with this link below

- https://github.com/tpruvot/yiimp

It only costs you if you going to host it to VPS and buy a domain.

But it most certainly will cost you if you aren't doing it as a joke.
You need a fast world wide network to distribute your blocks.

You'll need baremetal servers for nodes : 170 USD per month
VPS for pools : 30 USD per month
VPS for database : 30 USD per month

multiplied by each continent.

A lot of engineering (60 000 USD per year for each employee to scale your mining pool)

SOLO Mining pool : soloblocks.io
Your farm needs us.
