Infinitecoin Mining Pool using P2Pool
Welcome to Treasure Quarry, the
fun and friendly Infinitecoin mining pool. Roll up
your machines and start them earning some bright new
Treasure Quarry uses P2Pool for
distributing your mining earnings and for displaying
interesting graphs and statistics of your mining endeavours
as well as the pool's overall activity.
To get started with mining Infinitecoins, just download a miner like Pooler's cpuminer, to mine with your CPU, or if you have a good graphics card you can use cgminer. Some versions of cgminer are known to disconnect every now and then from pools in general, so if you get disconnections, check out this useful thread on how to automatically restart cgminer if it stops.
is a good choice if you're a beginner to mining, or if you
simply prefer not to use the command-line to set up your
Whichever miner you
choose, you'll need to point it to http://treasurequarry.com:9844
to mine at the Infinitecoin pool. Use an
Infinitecoin address from your wallet as your
username. There is no need to sign up to mine with
p2pool, unlike some traditional pools, so you can use
anything as your password.
For example, to mine with
Pooler's cpuminer, use the following command:
http://treasurequarry.com:9844 -u YOURINFINITECOINADDRESS
Ensure that you replace YOURINFINITECOINADDRESS with an actual infinitecoin address from
your wallet. This is the address that your pool earnings will be sent to. Please don't use an exchange address for receiving pool earnings. It's best to use an address from your infinitecoin wallet on your own computer.
To maximise your efficiency and get a good
representation of your hashrate on Treasure Quarry's graphs,
add the following to your Infinitecoin address (including
the + sign, and without any spaces between your
Infinitecoin address and the + sign). Just find the nearest
hashrate to your own mining speed from this table:
|Hashrate in KHash/s
||Difficulty to append to YOURINFINITECOINADDRESS|
This will get your miner to report when it
finds "pseudo-shares" of a particular difficulty appropriate to
your hashrate. Bear in mind that you will still need to
find real shares of the "Share
difficulty" (shown on the statistics
page) to be eligible for payouts. Once have then started
to find real shares you'll get paid when p2pool finds
blocks. The payments will go straight to your Infinitecoin
wallet on your computer and show as "Mined" transactions.
P2Pool uses a PPLNS system. This stands for
Pay Per last N shares, where N is the number of shares that
p2pool looks back over to share out the block rewards.
Because of this, your payouts may start relatively low as your
first shares go into the pool of other miners' shares, but will
increase over time to reach a steady regular amount as long as
the share difficulty stays the same.
You can view the pool's statistics
including a graph of the overall speed here.
of miners' hashrates and payouts are here as well as other
graphs relating to the pool too. You can view your individual
graphs on the graphs
page under the heading of the Infinitecoin address that you use
for mining .
If you have any questions at all, please
feel free to ask me (TreasureSeeker) in the support
thread at the Bitcointalk forum.
Have fun and happy mining!
