#Description

This is Stratum Proxy for Ethereum based pools (RPCv2) using asynchronous networking written in Python Twisted. Originally developed for DwarfPool http://dwarfpool.com/eth

NOTE: This fork is still in development. Some features may be broken. Please report any broken features or issues.

#Features

  • Additional up to 20% increase of earning compared to standard pools
  • ETH stratum proxy
  • Automatically failover via proxy
  • Only one connection to the pool
  • Workers get new jobs immediately
  • Submit of shares without network delay, it's like solo-mining but with benefits of professional pool
  • Central Wallet configuration, miners doesn't need wallet as username
  • Support monitoring via email
  • Bypass worker_id for detailed statistic and per rig monitoring
  • pass submitHashrate to pool

#How it works

   Pool A <---+                        +-------------+ Rig1 / PC1
 (Active)      |                       |
               |                       +-------------+ Rig2 / PC2
               |                       |
  Pool B <---+-----StratumProxy  <-----+-------------+ Rig3 / PC3
(FailOver)                             |
                                       +-------------+ Rig4 / PC4
                                       |
                                       +-------------+ Leaserigs

#ToDo


#Configuration

  • all configs in file eth-proxy.conf

#Command line to miner start, recommended farm-recheck to use with stratum-proxy is 200

#External script to restart proxy (made by rain)

Proxy working check

  • To check that proxy works open in browser http://127.0.0.1:8080/ (or your changed ip and port from config)
  • If you see "Ethereum stratum proxy" and some infos about connections.
  • If not then mostly case that you have application running on this port, at example Antivirus.

  2. Modify PATH variable (how-to http://www.java.com/en/download/help/path.xml) and add C:\Python27;C:\Python27\Scripts;

  3. Install python setuptools https://pypi.python.org/pypi/setuptools/#windows-7-or-graphical-install

  4. Install Python-Twisted https://pypi.python.org/pypi/Twisted/15.4.0 File Twisted-15.4.0.win32-py2.7.msi (32bit) or Twisted-15.4.0.win-amd64-py2.7.msi (64bit)

  5. Install zope.interface, in console run:

   easy_install -U zope.interface
  1. Install PyWin32 v2.7 pywin32-219.win32-py2.7.exe or pywin32-219.win-amd64-py2.7.exe http://sourceforge.net/projects/pywin32/files/pywin32/
