Crowdmine’s PPCoin pool will soon be opening to the public. Presently we are looking to recruit a small group of volunteers (around 10-25) to stress test the server. At this point we are 99% certain that everything is rock-solid, but as always it is difficult to be completely certain without the server having experienced a decent amount of traffic.
Here is a breakdown of the pool’s features:
[ul][li]Stratum mining protocol for fewer rejected/stale shares.[/li]
[li]Pay-Per-Last-N-Shares (PPLNS) reward system.[/li]
[li]1.5% fee - among the lowest![/li]
[li]0.5% block reward - taken from the 1.5% fee.[/li]
[li]Security: SSL, DDoS/XSS protection, PIN-protected address.[/li][/ul]
As a perk for participating in the beta test, there will be a reward of 5 PPCoins for each 200MH/s brought to the pool at the end of the first block discovered.* This is of course on top of the rewards you earn from mining. If you are interested, then please PM me here. *Note: MH/s calculated as an average for the entire round. Maximum of 20 PPC per person. [size=8pt]Edit: Round 1 is over.[/size]
Congratulations on the pool
are you currently up and running? i can point my miners there in an hour or so if you are ready?
Thanks, FuzzyBear! I’ll PM you the link.
Hey I’m interested in throwing 7GH/s your way for testing. Let me know!
YeOldeMiner, check your PM.
Willing to test with 90 to 100GH Pm me details. Will be home in an hours time will able to test for you.
i would be very much interested in beta testing this pool!
nice layout and design, looking good so far just put miner on for a little while
Hey, I might be able to throw like 10GH your way
alnoor1231, great! Check your PM
The beta is going great so far! The pool has 0 stales out of 189635 shares. One bug has been squashed (thanks to YeOldeMiner and crazyearner for pointing it out). Yesterday I implemented manual difficulty settings for workers, as requested by crazyearner.
Send me a PM I will take a look. Hopefully it will not steal my rewards like multipool did …
Thanks sahkan. We definitely won’t steal your shares.
Another update: more stats have been added (user rankings by speed and shares). Block stats will be coming once we have found our first block. Thanks to DarthNoodle for requesting this.
i request that we find our first block soon please though may be here a while with the current hashrate

You got it. I will have that done by the end of the weekend.
Thanks everyone for all of the great support and constructive feedback so far!
Based on feedback and some discussion, we’ve decided to change the fee structure and # of confirmations. The fee will now be 1.5%, which is competitive with other PPC pools. In addition, 0.5 of that will go to the block finder. The number of confirmations will now be 520.
hopping back on had few ups n downs lately but sorted them out
Mined on this pool for bout 2 days and nothin… Best of luck ppl.
