Bytecoin (BCN) CryptoNight Mining Pools

Need 2nd Pool Again

Pool Source Code:
Deploying a BiblePay Pool:
Requirements: "Win 2012 r2 server, 4 processors, static IP, IIS 7, SQL Server 2016, 8 gig ram, 100 gig drive, anti-ddos enabled. The vultr option is about $60 a month." -Rob
"There can be no automatic installation for a pool, There are no shortcuts to running a pool. You have to be a master SQL administrator, DBA, weak programmer, security admin and windows engineer to run a pool. You have to for one compile the source in visual studio 2017, and be ready for redeploying it when it changes. You have to spend 20 hours a week answering emails and doing adhoc sql queries, etc. If we had someone that even believed they could just compile it once and let it run it will be down within one month and all your coins will be lost."
"By the way, a couple of days ago, I started to look into the possibility of using another, existing pool software with biblepay, like NOMP or MPOS. I'm currently collecting all required information to write a bridge between MPOS and Biblepay, and it will most likely take another 1-2 weeks before a first usable result will be visible, but I'm optimistic that it can be done.
The problem of using an existing pool software is that Biblepay is not using the stratum mining protocol, the standard for most current pools. Plus maybe the custom Proof Of Biblehash, I'm currently looking into the codes to understand if that is something that MPOS needs to learn." -Lichtsucher
I hope that a second pool (with a different software) will help to solve some of the current problems, but it will take some time.
"The biggest problem is it not using standard pice of code from bitcoin-core. So we can't copy&paste mining code to another library and use it with exisitng minig software.
I develop MPOS few years ago, and there is not problem with stratum protocol, couse stratum is only between miner and pool. We need to develop standalone miner (without biblepayd) and make library to use it with eg. stratum pool can be connected with MPOS database and send there shares. MPOS is only for calculate shares diff and block payout, and send payout to users.
I have somewhere contact to main developer of (yeah I'am on credits Wink ). I will try ask him how hard is to implement biblepay kjv algorithm, but I think we need make some donation for this. But still it will be 50% of all we need." -svirusxxx2

Quote from: Lichtsucher on Today at 06:57:24 AM As I understood the Proof Of Biblehash and the upcoming POL algorithm, a full client as biblepayd is required. The client might be smaller, but will it change a lot? Plus, with the current rate of changes in the core code, maintaining a second miner seems a lot of hard work. I don't know how exactly PoL works, I must see some documentation (any one have some link ? )
I make little mistake... We can add some code to biblepayd to have stratum support, and standalone miner is not required. Or we also can write some proxy between biblepay and exisiting protocol, and stratum/longpooling. But still is some work to do with C++ (where my skills is very weak).
We exactly need three things 1/ write new option to biblepayd for reciving job and sending shares to node-open-mining-portal 2/ add library to this project: 3/ add support to eg.
position 3 I can write, but 1,2 it's too hard for now C++ developer" -svirusxxx2
"To everyone talking about NOMP, if NOMP was possible I would have written the original pool in NOMP.
There are massive things missing. One there is no hash function in python that is going to get you the biblehash.
Two, there is no software (like cgminer or sgminer) that is going to interact with NOMP.
If you think I did that bad of a job with the pool, I think you should find another community.
Ill fix the pool software if its not working properly, as it has historically worked with over 98% uptime and I kept it maintained, and after 1/2 day of being behind you are talking about porting it to NOMP. Shameful.
Anyway, do whatever you want, its not going to work and Im not going to help code pieces of the core client to work with it, as the pool does a lot more than you think it does. It is also a hub for adding orphan features." -Rob

Things you can do to help

Hi all,
Wanted to write a quick post on things that are going on and the devs would love some help with:
  1. Testnet infrastructure. Thanks to everyone who's volunteered mining power, we'll get back to you ASAP. Right now, we need to get as many nodes on testnet updated as possible. If you run a node, know someone who runs a node, want to run a node, whatever, please move to the 1.8-dev branch from Github now. The more nodes we get across, the more realistic the stress tests will be.
  2. AuxPoW pool software; I know there's evaluation going on for NOMP already, but if you know node.js please nudge me, I think we could do with some help there. If you know Python, please consider looking at stratum-mining and see if you can modify it to handle AuxPoW somehow; you may need to look at MPOS as well to have it understand what's going on, of course.
  3. dogecoinj unit tests; if you fancy some work that's easily verified, although tricky and relatively tedious, the unit tests in dogecoinj 0.11 ( need to be updated to match Dogecoin instead of Bitcoin.

Raspberry Pi + ASIC defcoin mining guide

Want to get started mining defcoin with an ASIC and a Raspberry Pi? Does 360 KH/s of mining power sound appealing? Here’s how to do it.
1) Hardware List
-Raspberry Pi Model B
--SD Card
--Micro USB power supply
--Ethernet cable
-Gridseed ASIC
--12V power supply (5.5mm/2.5mm barrel connector)
--USB to Mini USB data cable
The main component is the Gridseed ASIC, which will be doing the Scrypt calculations. The Raspberry Pi will be used as the controller for the ASIC, and will be doing the communication with the mining pool. If you’re not familiar with the term, an ASIC is an Application-Specific Integrated Circuit - basically a chip with a single purpose, like mining crypto currency. Using an ASIC will allow us to mine more efficiently than we would be able to with general purpose hardware.
The ASIC that I’m using is a “300+ KH/s Single Gridseed ASIC Miner”. It looks like a CPU heatsink with a fan attached. There is actually a circuit board with 5 ASIC chips sandwiched between two halves of this heatsink, and has a mini USB connector and a power connector sticking out the side. There are a few places where you can buy these. I bought mine at for $130. That was the lowest price that I could find, and I had a good experience buying from them. Use this link, and you can get $20 off of a $200 order (and give me some referral points :-)) GAWMiners. You can also find other vendors by searching for “Gridseed ASIC”. You’ll need a 12V power supply to power the ASIC, and a USB A to USB Mini B cable to connect the ASIC to the Raspberry Pi. I’m using a 60W power supply, which seems to be working fine for defcoin (Scrypt) mining. These ASICs can also mine Bitcoin at the same time, but you may need a beefier power supply if you want to do that.
The Raspberry Pi can be purchased at any number of places- Amazon, SparkFun, AdaFruit, etc. I’m using the Model B because I had one already, and also because it has a built in ethernet port that will make connecting to the internet easy. Make sure to get an SD Card and a micro USB power adapter to get the Pi up and running too.
2) Software
If you haven’t already, download the defcoin wallet from If you want to do pooled mining, create an account for one of the defcoin pools, such as or whichever other pool you want to mine. Once you’ve created a pool account, make sure to create a worker too (for MPOS pools, that will be under My Account > My Workers). The password for your worker does not have to be the same as the password for your pool account (and it probably shouldn’t be).
Next, download the latest Raspbian image from and install the image to your SD card. Instructions for installing the image can be found here. If you are using the dd method on a Mac, make sure to use /dev/rdiskX instead of /dev/diskX - both will work, but rdiskX is much faster. Once you have the image installed, put the SD card in the Raspberry Pi, connect the Pi to your network, and connect the Pi to your micro USB power adapter to power it on. Next, SSH in to your Raspberry Pi with the default username and password pi/raspberry. I use nMap to find the IP address that has been assigned to my Pi. You can also use an HDMI display and a USB keyboard to log in instead of using SSH. After logging in for the first time, run through the wizard that comes up to configure your Raspberry Pi. The defaults are fine for most things, just make sure that you don’t skip the step to expand the filesystem to use the rest of your SD card. If you don’t expand the filesystem, there won’t be enough space for other software.
Once you have Raspbian installed, and have gotten through all of the first login setup stuff (which will likely end with a reboot), log back in to the Raspberry Pi with the pi user. From the command line, run sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get dist-upgrade
There are some stability issues with USB communication between the Raspberry Pi and the Gridseed ASIC. Enabling SLUB debugging seems to resolve this, at least well enough to prevent the Raspberry Pi from freezing every so often. Open the /boot/cmdline.txt file, and add the following text to the end of the line. Don’t add a new line, just add this to the end. You can use vi, nano, or whatever your favorite text editor is to do this.
Reboot the Raspberry Pi once you’ve added that flag to your /boot/cmdline.txt file.
sudo shutdown -r now 
Log back in with the pi user once the Raspberry Pi is finished rebooting.
The mining software that we’re going to use is a customized version of cgminer that has support for the Gridseed GC3355 chips that are used in our ASIC. There are a number of different mining programs out there, this is just what has been working the best for me so far. First, install git and dependencies needed to compile cgminer.
sudo apt-get install git build-essential libtool libcurl4-openssl-dev libncurses5-dev libudev-dev autoconf automake 
Next, clone the git repository for cgminer-gc3355
git clone 
Next, we’ll build cgminer.
cd cgminer-gc3355 autoreconf -i ./configure --enable-scrypt --enable-gridseed make 
Once the make command finishes, we’re ready to run the mining software. You can also run make install if you want to install the software, but running it out of the build directory works just fine. Plug in the power supply for your ASIC, and connect the ASIC to it. Connect the USB cable to the ASIC and to your Raspberry Pi. Run the mining software by running the following command. The -o option specifies your pool URL, the -u option specifies your username and the workername that you set up for the pool, and the -p option is the password for your worker. There are a couple of options available that are specific to the gridseed ASICs, and those will be placed after --gridseed-options. The freq=850 option sets the clock frequency of the ASIC to 850 MHz. There are other clock options available, but 850 seems to be working best for me. I was getting hardware errors at 900, and a lower average hash rate. I am getting about 360 KH/s with the clock frequency set to 850.
sudo ./cgminer -o stratum+tcp:// -u Username.Workername -p yourworkerpassword --gridseed-options freq=850 
This command needs to be run with sudo in order to access the USB hardware. You can also create another user specifically for mining, or grant the pi user the appropriate permissions if you don’t want to run cgminer as root. When you run this command, you should see output from cgminer showing that it is communicating with the mining pool, and something showing your hash rate. If you’ve gotten this far, and you’re seeing output from cgminer showing a hash rate, congratulations, you’re mining defcoins with your ASIC! There are just a couple more steps to do if you want to let your Raspberry Pi and ASIC continue mining without needing you to be logged in.
To keep cgminer running after I log out, I am using nohup. You could also use screen instead of nohup. Create a script ( by running the following commands.
echo “nohup /home/pi/cgminer-gc3355/cgminer --real-quiet -o stratum+tcp:// -u Username.Workername -p yourworkerpassword --gridseed-options freq=850 &” > /home/pi/ chmod a+x /home/pi/ 
If you run this command with sudo, cgminer will run in the background, and will continue running after you log out. If you want to have this run when your Raspberry Pi boots, modify your /etc/rc.local script so that it executes this script. Your /etc/rc.local file will end up looking like this:
# Print the IP address _IP=$(hostname -I) || true if [ "$_IP" ]; then printf "My IP address is %s\n" "$_IP" fi /home/pi/ exit 0 
That’s it! You should now have a Raspberry Pi controlling a defcoin mining ASIC, that starts mining as soon as it boots up. For more reading, check out some of the links below.

There are also some pre-built images for using a Raspberry Pi as an ASIC mining controller. I haven’t tried any of these myself, but they could be worth checking out. Raspberry Pi Controller Images with Gridseed ASIC Support

[BS] Interactive cryptocurrency teaching session

I'd like to see if there is community interest in a "live Q&A" on cryptocurrency. Preferably something like an interactive podcast, where the speaker has audio/video and everyone else uses chat to ask questions. I post here because the idea is to reward a good speaker and potentially broadcast /dogemarket
If others are interested, I'm thinking a many-participants/one-speaker system where everyone could pitch in to reward the speaker for their time. I propose audio/video because it's a much more effective learning method than the standard "read this article" response you get in many places. Having someone actively explain topics would be great (and none of my friends like this stuff....much sad shibe).
I would expect a good speaker to have broad perspective and hands-on experience:
Things that would really enhance a live session:
Hopefully I'm not only on the moon rocket that's not fully satisfied with posts "basics of [trading|crypto|altcoin]" - any changes to this idea are welcome. If you're in favor please voice your support, and perhaps list how much you'd contribute to a speaker. I suppose people can recommend speakers (or themselves) and we could use the comment up/down votes
Edit: I'd pitch in 5000 doge
