POOLs
« on: April 26, 2014, 12:39:25 PM »
No fixed Bounty on this:

What is currently needed is a working p2pool node, and p2pool working with huntercoin, for both sha256 and scrypt - it seems normal p2pool users are unable to get it working out of the box - if we know what the issues are we can hopefully fix.

Also - Possibly some github repo of a working/modded pool which can be used for pool operators wanting to setup new pools (or upgrade old pools) that also merge mine Huntercoin.

Don't have much more information than this at this time - but if any pool specialists want to contribute they can send a PM or post here, and we can arrange a suitable bounty.

What kind of server resources/hardware would you expect from setting up a pool? I wanted to experiment with this in the past but never got to it, nor was as interested in a coin as this to where I might follow through with it.

I was giving it a good look over as well today, From what I seen it doesn't seem like it should be too much of a hassle to try it out.

For the pools, they would need merged mining otherwise pretty pointless.

Eligius and some others use https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=61731.0 - but afaik is modified somewhat,

P2Pool - seems simple to setup, (step by step guides) - seems most were unable to mine blocks (some did mine blocks at the start though).

-

One way to get people to p2pool mine seems to be to give bounties for everyone who shows/proves they merge mined a huntercoin block with another altcoin as parent chain (this is what united scrypt coin devs did).

need more peoples thoughts

Anyone wanting to add HUC to their mining pool or with p2pool,

Please report any problems here or on the forum somewhere - maybe i should create another thread later
