Application providing HTTP/getwork protocol <--> Stratum and Stratum/LTC mining protocols bridge

Installation on Windows

  1. Download official Windows binaries (EXE) from or
  2. Open downloaded file. It will open console window. Using default settings, proxy connects to Itzod's mining pool (or ltcmine pool, if -pa scrypt was specified)
  3. If you want to connect to another pool or change other proxy settings, type "mining_proxy.exe --help" in console window.

Installation using Github

This is advanced option for experienced users, but give you the easiest way for updating the proxy.

  1. git clone
  2. cd stratum-mining-proxy
  3. sudo apt-get install python-dev # Development package of Python are necessary
  4. sudo python # This will upgrade setuptools package
  5. cd litecoin_scrypt sudo python install # Build and install LTC scrypt extension cd ..
  6. sudo python develop # This will install required dependencies (namely Twisted and Stratum libraries), but don't install the package into the system.
  7. You can start the Stratum proxy by typing "./" in the terminal window. Using default settings, it connects to Itzod's mining pool. Also you have ability to start Stratum/LTC proxy by typing "./ -pa scrypt". Using default settings, it connects to LTCMine mining pool.
  8. If you want to connect to another pool or change other proxy settings, type "./ --help".
  9. If you want to update the proxy, type "git pull" in the package directory.

Compiling midstate C extension

For some really big operations using getwork interface of this proxy, you'll find useful "midstatec" C extension, which significantly speeds up midstate calculations (yes, plain python implementation is so slow). For enabling this extension, just type "make" in midstatec directory. Proxy will auto-detect compiled extension on next startup.


This proxy is provided by Slush's mining pool at You can contact the author by email info(at) or by IRC on in channel #stratum.

This proxy was modified to add support of Stratum/LTC mining protocol. Modifications implemented by and minings pools administrator, you can ask your questions by email balthazar(at) or PM at exchange.
