- Zcoin pool is now open officially. 0% fee until 20th Feb
- Uro pool will be closed as there's no more working nodes. It's impossible to run pool technically.
- There's some mining helper program for miningpoolhub. Try mph-manager (easy setting helper) and MultiPoolMiner (Auto switching based on hardware hashrate)
1. Mining rewards
Expanse Mining reward is combination of
(1) block finding reward. 8 EXP
(2) transaction fee (gas spent)
(3) uncle reward (7 EXP, 6 EXP, 5 EXP, 4 EXP, 3 EXP, 2 EXP)
(4) uncle inclusion incentive (0.5 EXP, 0.25 EXP)
Uncles are not like orphan blocks. Expanse rewards uncle mining too to overcome issues from fast block time. It makes little pool to survive, prevents massive forking, hardens security.
We distribute all these 4 types of rewards. Many pool pays uncle reward but most of them don't pay other rewards.
2. Miner settings
Here are server info for several regions.
U.S. : us-east.ethash-hub.miningpoolhub.com
Europe : europe.ethash-hub.miningpoolhub.com
Asia : asia.ethash-hub.miningpoolhub.com
We support all miner and proxy programs.
(1) eth-stratum-mining-proxy (by coinotron)
(2) eth-proxy (by dwarfpool)
(3) ethminer-genoil (by Genoil)
(4) qtminer (by etherchain)
(5) ethminer (from ethereum package)
- (1), (2) are proxy programs that should be used with other (3), (5) programs. (1), (2) are not standalone miners but make a proxy to interact with server efficiently.
We recommend you to use below combination for efficient mining but other miner programs should work too.
(3) ethminer-genoil (stratum mode) <-- Mostly recommended(1) eth-stratum-mining-proxy + (3) ethminer-genoil
(2) eth-proxy + (3) ethminer-genoil
Here are detailed port, settings, download link
Developed by coinotron, This program have benefit on mining pool's auto switching feature as it follows pure stratum protocol as possible.
Stratum, vardiff supported on our pool.Port : 20565Usage : Run proxy like belowmining_proxy.exe -o us-east1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com -p 20565mining_proxy.exe -o europe1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com -p 20565mining_proxy.exe -o asia1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com -p 20565Run (3) or (5) minerethminer --farm-recheck 200 -G -F http://127.0.0.1:8332/username.workername:workerpassword
Developed by dwarfpool. This proxy supports failover.
Stratum, vardiff supported on our pool.Port : 20566Usage : There are two types of mining with eth-proxy.
Username based authorization, and wallet address based authorization. If you want to set failover with wallet based pools like dwarfpool (wallet based pool), you have to use wallet based authorization method.
* Username based authorization method (Default method at Mining Pool Hub)
You have to configure eth-proxy.conf before launch. set like below.(Dummy data filled at WALLET to pass proxy's wallet address check)WALLET = "0x0000000000000000000000000000000000000000"ENABLE_WORKER_ID = TruePOOL_HOST = "us-east1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com"POOL_PORT = 20566POOL_FAILOVER_ENABLE = TruePOOL_HOST_FAILOVER1 = "europe1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com"POOL_PORT_FAILOVER1 = 20566POOL_HOST_FAILOVER2 = "asia1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com"POOL_PORT_FAILOVER2 = 20566Set us-east1, europe1, asia1 server order from nearest to farthest from your location.Run (3) or (5) ethminerethminer --farm-recheck 200 -G -F http://127.0.0.1:8080/username.workername
* Wallet address based authorization
First, you have to set wallet address at pool's Wallet page, so that mining pool hub can find your username by wallet address.You have to configure eth-proxy.conf before launch. Set like below.WALLET = "(Your wallet address set at wallet page)"ENABLE_WORKER_ID = TruePOOL_HOST = "us-east1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com"POOL_PORT = 20566POOL_FAILOVER_ENABLE = TruePOOL_HOST_FAILOVER1 = "europe1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com"POOL_PORT_FAILOVER1 = 20566POOL_HOST_FAILOVER2 = "asia1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com"POOL_PORT_FAILOVER2 = 20566Set us-east1, europe1, asia1 server order from nearest to farthest from your location.Run (3) or (5) ethminerethminer --farm-recheck 200 -G -F http://127.0.0.1:8080/workernameethminer --farm-recheck 200 -G -F http://127.0.0.1:8080/username.workernameBoth commands will work. Whether you input username or not, miningpoolhub will recognize and work.
This is fork from original ethminer, supports CUDA for nVidia. If you have CUDA supported cards, try this release. ethminer-genoil supports stratum and vardiff only when using with "-S" stratum option.Port : 20565Usage : ethminer -G -S us-east1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com:20565 -O username.workername:passwordethminer -G -S europe1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com:20565 -O username.workername:passwordethminer -G -S asia1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com:20565 -O username.workername:passwordYou should type uppercase -S for stratum option.
Developed by etherchain (ethpool).Stratum, vardiff supported on our pool.Port : 20567Usage : qtminer -s us-east1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com:20567 -u username.workername -Gqtminer -s europe1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com:20567 -u username.workername -Gqtminer -s asia1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com:20567 -u username.workername -G
Developed by ethereum c++ dev. As stratum protocol is not supported it polls server work and submit infinitely.Network protocol is inefficient and due to some bugs, we don't recommend you to mine with it.Port : 20568 (for direct mining)20568 port is no longer available due to unnecessary heavy load of server request. We may open this port for whitelisted IP only.Usage : ethminer -G -F http://us-east1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com:20568/username.workernameethminer -G -F http://europe1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com:20568/username.workernameethminer -G -F http://asia1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com:20568/username.workername
