Smartpool - The first decentralized mining pool based on smart contract (alpha)

Gitter

Ropsten testnet

Smartpool is live on Ropsten testnet. This repository consists of the client software. The smart contract repository is here.

Requirements

OS

The client is currently tested only on Mac OS and Ubuntu.

Golang compiler

Golang compiler version 1.7 or higher.

Parity client

Ethereum Parity client version 1.5.9 or higher.

Geth client

Ethereum Geth client needs to be compiled from source.

Ethminer

We support CPU and GPU mining with ethminer version 1.2.9 or higher. Current versions do not do CPU mining so an older version is necessary to CPU mine on testnet.

ETH balance

To run smartpool you must have a Ropsten testnet account with least 0.5 Ether. You can get testnet Ethers from metamask faucets or ping us on our gitter channel.

Note: To get Ether from metamask faucet, you need to install metamask browser add-on.

Installation

  1. git clone https://github.com/SmartPool/smartpool-client.git
  2. cd smartpool-client
  3. ./compile.sh

Note: If you are on MacOS, there is a issue with Go and XCode 8.3 that might make you see killed ./smartpool error. To fix this issue, please run build/env.sh go build -o smartpool -ldflags -s cmd/ropsten/ropsten.go instead of ./compile.sh.

Running

  1. Run Geth on Ropsten testnet: geth --testnet --fast --rpc --rpcapi "db,eth,net,web3,miner" or Parity: parity --chain ropsten --jsonrpc-apis "web3,eth,net,parity,traces,rpc,parity_set"
  2. Run smartpool client ./smartpool --keystore keystore_path --miner account. Where
  • keystore_path is a path to a directory that contains your account key. E.g., $HOME/.local/share/io.parity.ethereum/keys/kovan/.
  • account is the address of your account. E.g., 0x2ba80fe2811f8e0ea5eabf8e07697f7e9f5ae56c.
  • E.g., ./smartpool --keystore ~/Library/Ethereum/testnet/keystore --miner 0xe034afdcc2ba0441ff215ee9ba0da3e86450108d.
  1. Enter your key passphrase.
  2. Run ethminer -F localhost:1633 or ethminer -G -F localhost:1633 if you mine with your GPU.

Kovan testnet

Smartpool was live on Kovan testnet altough since Kovan is PoA rather than PoW mining had to be faked. Smartpool no longer runs on Kovan, Ropsten must be used instead.
