There is a limit of 200 receipients that can be included in a payout, hence the min payout set on the pool. If payments stop going out, do not worry! Funds are safu! Blocks can still be found and will be credited to your username!
If you experience any issues please check the #pools-and-operators channel in discord to see if it's already being worked on.
The longer it takes to make a payout, the more people meet the min payout making the following payout take longer. If you scroll down the payments page compare the number of miners paid versus the time between payments and you will see the correlation.
Pending is supposed to be time to maturity before a block gets paid which is set to 10 to try to coincide with dPoW (notarization of blocks)
Immature and balance on your worker stats page are the unpaid balances accrued from previous payout rounds, it does not count blocks that have not yet been attempted to be paid by the pool
Payments that show up on the payments page initially are in the process of constructing the z transaction, once it actually broadcasts the transaction it will switch to being hyperlinked and then should arrive in miners' wallets in the next block or two.
- Build Komodo
- Launch PIRATE chain:
./komodod -ac_name=PIRATE -ac_supply=0 -ac_reward=25600000000 -ac_halving=77777 -ac_private=1 -addnode=220.127.116.11
- Generate Z address:
./komodo-cli -ac_name=PIRATE z_getnewaddress
- Securely backup your private key:
./komodo-cli -ac_name=PIRATE z_exportkey "zaddr"
- Check your balance:
./komodo-cli -ac_name=PIRATE z_gettotalbalance
- For more information visit the project website
There are a few decent GPU miners available. You will need to experiment to find which one works best for you. DYOR on this and be sure to virus scan all the things!
Here are a couple well-known GPU miners:
While it is possible to CPU mine with komodod directly like so:
./komodo-cli -ac_name=PIRATE setgenerate true
The chances to find a block solo with CPU mining only are already fairly low and most likely the reason you are here.
The well-known CPU miner that can be used with the pool is nheqminer. This does not require a Nicehash account and can be used to connect to any equihash stratum.
It is suggested that you attempt to build the CPU miner instead of using the pre-compiled binary so that optimizations for your CPU can be made during the build process
sudo apt-get install cmake build-essential libboost-all-dev
git clone -b Linux https://github.com/nicehash/nheqminer.git
cmake . && make
ln -s /home/zcash/nheqminer/Linux_cmake/nheqminer_cpu/nheqminer_cpu /usr/local/bin/nheqminer_cpu
Now you can launch your miner! (replace the values as indicated changing the number of threads (-t) and your address for payouts (-u)
nheqminer_cpu -t numberofthreads -l stratumhost:stratumport -u youraddress
Download and install the latest release for windows from the github repo
Replace the placeholders below as needed and start mining!
nheqminer -t numberofthreads -l stratumhost:stratumport -u youraddress
