Update to stratum servers, posted Mar 8, 2014 at 23:22 by ubaldo

We have now introduced 2 stratum servers to replace the old one.

The old server kept being attacked and so we have discarded it however the new ones have an important role thanks to their location.

We now have us1.mineabit.com based in north america & eu1.mineabit.com based in central europe.

Depending on demand we will increase the number of stratum servers.

We have also made some changes to the withdrawal rules:

Minimum automatic payout set to:  0.0001 AUR
Tx Fee for auto payment: 0.001 AUR
TX fee for manual payment:0.001 AUR


Please also note there is a 1% mining fee which helps us maintain the pool running.

Emails fixed!, posted Mar 5, 2014 at 21:34 by ubaldo

Emails are now sent correctly, payout minimums have been reduced to 0.0001 AUR and tx fee to 0.0001 AUR.

Locked accounts part 2, posted Mar 3, 2014 at 19:02 by ubaldo

I am manually unlocking accounts on a regular basis. The new mail server has been deployed and is being configured.

This should sort out the issue with mails not being delivered.

Please bear with me while this is done.

Once the new server is up and running, all notifications should run smooth

Locked accounts, posted Mar 1, 2014 at 19:31 by ubaldo

We had over 300 accounts locked due to the failure of our mail server.

Every account has been manually unlocked and you should be able to log back in.

Please be aware we are still waiting for the deployment of the new mail server and the backup one is holding the load but is limited to 100 emails per hour.

As people is getting annoyed with messages on this thread from pool ops (most of them are spam anyway) please keep an eye on the news sewction of the pool.

The pool is not charging fees and is set to 0.01tx fee so we rely purely on donations from our miners.

The stratum has been restarted successfully and miners are connecting again.

We are still waiting delivery of the new mail server and exploring options to mediate in the mean time!

Site issues, posted Feb 28, 2014 at 20:00 by ubaldo

As you know we have been experiencing issues with the load.

To explain the situation we have a total of 1100 new accounts in the last 12 hours.

Each account required email verification and also email validation to change the account settings, you can do the math... the result was a crash of the mail server.

At that stage the backup mail server kicked in however it has ( and was not known before) a maximum of 100 emails per hour.

Going through the logs I am noticing a lot of people had turned on email notifications for blocks found which again adds to the load.

The result of all of this was that a lot of emails were not sent properly and when they were tokens would have expired. Rage!

Please keep in mind this was unpredicted and we are now working on two things:

  • new mail server capable of handling the load
  • new database server to improve load
The stratum server is currently down and will be restarted once the database maintenance is over. All coins mined until now are safe and payouts are running fine (once blocks have been confirmed). For those complaining about the lenght of time for confirmations please note this is not decided by me but by the devs.


Updated wallet for hardfork!, posted Feb 25, 2014 at 01:15 by ubaldo

The wallet has been updated in preparation for the hardfork at block 5400!

While i tried my best to keep the downtime to a minimum i apologise for the 5 seconds it took the updated wallet to synch.

The pool will remain with 0% fee and just 0.01 tx fee.

All I will receive is your generous donations!

New pool - No fees!, posted Feb 13, 2014 at 20:53 by ubaldo

A friend suggested this coin, i liked it and decided to set-up a pool.

There are no fees simply because i like the idea of this coin and i hope the devs stick to their plan!!!

Should you wish to contribute please turn on the donation from your control panel.

All donations will go towards server costs and will help maintain the pool to top standards!

Happy hashing!
