TheSeven's PPCoin Pool

I'm pleased to finally announce the official launch of my new PPCoin pool!
The web site is mostly finished now, just some more explanations still missing.

Features:

  • Stratum
  • No registration!
  • 2% fee
  • ESMPPS reward model (low variance)
  • PPLNS reward model (if you like that better)
  • Optional: payout after only 12 confirmations
  • Dynamically adjusting difficulty
  • All new pool server software
  • JSONRPC API for statistics


You can find the pool at:
 http://theseven.bounceme.net/~theseven/pool/

Pool 0 is hiding block contents from us


Thanks

That's just bfgminer nagging you that the pool isn't fully transparent because it isn't spamming you with shitloads of transaction data that the miner just doesn't need at all. Typical Luke-Jr paranoia.

Good work on these pools, I saw that you also contributed to the d7 that I use. Any improvements here other than the new payout plan? I am waiting on a new PSU and when it arrives I can throw a rig on there for 24/7 if you need one.

That would be great!

The main difference to e.g. D7 here is not just the new reward system, the pool infrastructure has been rebuilt from scratch, using completely different technologies. Not sure whether it will be better in the end, but it's an experiment :)
For the techies: This server side of this pool is implemented completely in Node.JS, and using MongoDB as a backing store.

Hey there TheSeven, thanks for making a stratum pool for PPCoin, it's much needed :)

One question: I've been mining for a few hours now (I chose PPLNS) and while I see my hash rate on my stats page, all balances remain at 0. Is that expected? I know that with PPLNS payouts are after 520 blocks but balance and share count are usually up-to-date.

In a PPLNS reward system, the last N shares at the time that a block was found are paid when that block confirms.
In this pool software, the balance shows money that you have actually earned, and will be paid out once you reach the limit (currently 10 PPC).
This means, that until someone finds a block for the PPLNS reward system, and that block confirms, you won't have a balance. You should see your shares in the reward model area below the hashrate graph, however the system has not found a block yet, and thus doesn't know how much a block is worth, so it currently assumes zero. That makes the PPLNS shares invisible on the web site right now, but it's purely a display bug that will fix itself after the first block is found.

To the poclbm user who'se ppcoin address ends with "fdWY": You've been (unsuccessfully) sending HTTP Getwork requests to my pool server for days now. This is a stratum pool. Please use a stratum-capable mining client, or set up a stratum proxy.

I'm not aware of any significant downtime, but the IP that it's hosted on currently isn't static. Maybe your DNS cache ignores the time to live value of the DNS entry?
Can you give me some more specific information on when exactly the pool seemed to be down from your perspective?

I did not point the miner, just went to the site and I can't get there...
