- Monero pool compatible Claymore Cryptonote miner v9.7 has been released
  Now you can mine with username.workername form. Devfee reduced for secure ssl connection.
- There's some mining helper program for miningpoolhub. Try mph-manager (easy setting helper) and MultiPoolMiner (Auto switching based on hardware hashrate)

Expanse (EXP) pool, posted Sep 20, 2016 at 11:08 (UTC)

Expanse pool


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
                us-east1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com  
Europe :   europe.ethash-hub.miningpoolhub.com
                europe1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com
Asia     :   asia.ethash-hub.miningpoolhub.com
                asia1.expanse.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
(4) qtminer



Here are detailed port, settings, download link

(1) eth-stratum-mining-proxy
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 : 20565
Usage : Run proxy like below
            mining_proxy.exe -o us-east1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com -p 20565
            mining_proxy.exe -o europe1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com -p 20565
            mining_proxy.exe -o asia1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com -p 20565

            Run (3) or (5) miner
            ethminer --farm-recheck 200 -G -F http://127.0.0.1:8332/username.workername:workerpassword

Download : Windows, Linux (source)


(2) eth-proxy
Developed by dwarfpool. This proxy supports failover.
Stratum, vardiff supported on our pool.

Port : 20566
Usage : 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 = True
POOL_HOST = "us-east1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com"
POOL_PORT = 20566
POOL_FAILOVER_ENABLE = True
POOL_HOST_FAILOVER1 = "europe1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com"
POOL_PORT_FAILOVER1 = 20566
POOL_HOST_FAILOVER2 = "asia1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com"
POOL_PORT_FAILOVER2 = 20566

Set us-east1, europe1, asia1 server order from nearest to farthest from your location.


Run (3) or (5) ethminer
ethminer --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 = True
POOL_HOST = "us-east1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com"
POOL_PORT = 20566
POOL_FAILOVER_ENABLE = True
POOL_HOST_FAILOVER1 = "europe1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com"
POOL_PORT_FAILOVER1 = 20566
POOL_HOST_FAILOVER2 = "asia1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com"
POOL_PORT_FAILOVER2 = 20566

Set us-east1, europe1, asia1 server order from nearest to farthest from your location.


Run (3) or (5) ethminer
ethminer --farm-recheck 200 -G -F http://127.0.0.1:8080/workername
ethminer --farm-recheck 200 -G -F http://127.0.0.1:8080/username.workername

Both commands will work. Whether you input username or not, miningpoolhub will recognize and work.



Download : Windows, Linux (source)


(3) ethminer-genoil
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 : 20565
Usage : ethminer -G -S us-east1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com:20565 -O username.workername:password
            ethminer -G -S europe1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com:20565 -O username.workername:password
            ethminer -G -S asia1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com:20565 -O username.workername:password

             You should type uppercase -S for stratum option.

Download : WindowsLinux (source)


(4) qtminer
Developed by etherchain (ethpool).
Stratum, vardiff supported on our pool.

Port : 20567
Usage : qtminer -s us-east1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com:20567 -u username.workername -G
            qtminer -s europe1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com:20567 -u username.workername -G
            qtminer -s asia1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com:20567 -u username.workername -G

Download : Windows, Linux (source)


(5) ethminer
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.workername
            ethminer -G -F http://europe1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com:20568/username.workername
            ethminer -G -F http://asia1.expanse.miningpoolhub.com:20568/username.workername

Download : Windows, Linux (source)







Happy mining!
