No frills, no fuss 1% fee anonymous solo bitcoin mining for everyone
No registration required, no payment schemes no pool op wallets
Note that mining here means contributing to segwit activation since this is the logical choice for the bitcoin network moving forward. Bitcoin unlimited is a disruptive hostile fork that does not have bitcoin's best interest at heart and they do not have the expertise to maintain the network's health safely and securely.Configuration:
Just point your miner to: stratum+tcp://solo.ckpool.org:3333 or port 443
Asicminer tube/prisma owners need to point to a special proxy at solo.ckpool.org:3335
If you use an incompatible rental service that refuses to work on port 3333 try port 3334
Set your username to your btcaddress with any or even no worker extension, and any password.
eg: cgminer -o stratum+tcp://solo.ckpool.org:3333 -u 1PKN98VN2z5gwSGZvGKS2bj8aADZBkyhkZ.0 -p x
If you enter an invalid address you will be rejected
Pick the server nearest you! Server locations:
US Mid: mine to solo.ckpool.org:3333
Germany: mine to de.ckpool.org:3333Blocks solved:https://www.blocktrail.com/BTC/pool/solockpoolSuitable for:
Large mining farms
Regular miners struggling to recoup costs who wish to take extra risk for greater reward potential for part or all of their hashrate
The last backup for all miners who don't have a solo setup or wish to avoid the overheads of running one
Miners with old/inefficient miners that will never earn any rewards through regular mining that wish to leave it mining as a lotteryProxy support:
Miners with many devices wishing to consolidate their devices into a single connection to solo ckpool are recommended to use the complementary ckpool code as ckproxy stratum proxy (for linux).
Ckpool code is available here: https://bitbucket.org/ckolivas/ckpoolStatistics:
Simple total pool statistics can be found at http://solo.ckpool.org/pool/
Solo.ckpool.org currently only displays minimal per user and per worker information based on btcaddress.
To access this, enter your BTC address at the end of: http://solo.ckpool.org/users/
or your workername at the end of: http://solo.ckpool.org/workers/Advantages over regular solo mining:
Mining at solo.ckpool.org avoids the overheads of running a full bitcoin node that requires both great storage and bandwidth for optimal performance.
Solo.ckpool.org is extensively connected to high speed low latency bitcoin nodes for rapid block change notification and propagation.
Unlike regular pools, ckpool never mines transaction-free blocks due to its ultra-scaleable code which has miners on both new blocks and transactions concurrently.How it works:
ckpool automatically takes your bitcoin address and gives you a unique stratum connection mining to your own address.
If you find a block, 99% of the 12.5BTC + transaction fees get generated directly at your bitcoin address!
There is no need to worry about passwords, logins, withdrawals, authentication or pool wallet hacks.
You remain anonymous apart from your btc address.
All you need to confirm you are mining to your own address is to examine the coinbase and template sent to you over stratum.
Note that if you do not find a block, you get no reward at all with solo mining.
1% goes to 1PKN98VN2z5gwSGZvGKS2bj8aADZBkyhkZ to operate the pool and contribute to further ckpool code development.
