Release Notes

Prague, 2014-10-17
User Interface
  • The website has been entirely rewritten using a completely new design and technology.
  • Most pages provide an interactive overlay help for easier operation and understanding (click to or gold "i" on left screen border).
  • A preview Demo Account allows exploring all website features using real account.
  • Enhanced account settings - 2FA removal, wallet unlock, email change, etc.
  • New account dashboard provides charts and detailed information about your account.
  • System statistics page has been extended with detailed pool hash rate charts, number of active workers, and more information.
  • Optional switch to milli-Bitcoins (mBTC).
  • Automated selection of appropriate Hash rate units [Mh/s, Gh/s, Th/s and Ph/s].
  • Activity Log keeps track of all your account actions.
Convenient Device Monitoring
  • Continuous monitoring of your worker hash rate.
  • Email notifications in case of a sudden hash rate drop.
  • Detection of worker failure for miners with average hash rate of at least 500 Mh/s.
Development Corner
  • Development proposals driven by your hash rate.
  • Submit your own idea about how the pool should change and let everybody to vote.
Payout Enhancements
  • Payout threshold (transaction amount) can be set as low as 1 mBTC (0.001 BTC).
  • An additional fee of 0.1 mBTC (0.0001 BTC) applies to payout thresholds lower than 10 mBTC (0.01 BTC). This feature mainly enables one-time withdrawal of your balance lower than 0.01 BTC and is not intended for regular payouts.
  • The Payout history page contains a direct link to the payout transaction on blockchain.info.
Reward System Enhancements
  • The original scoring system has been reworked and replaced by much more stable and easier to understand version. See Rewards in our User Manual for more details.
New Worker Settings
  • Worker password is not required anymore (it can be left blank or any string can be used).
  • [auto] worker is a great “hash-rate-savior” when you:
    • forget to give a name to your worker
    • forget to change it in Worker Settings after you have changed it in your miner configuration OR
    • make a typo in the worker name.
    In such case, the pool assigns an automatic name to your worker ('user_name.[auto]'). Caution, the pool can NOT accept your shares if your user name is incorrect, though.
  • Minimum difficulty - Optionally, specify a minimum difficulty for your workers. If defined, the pool will never assign them a work with lower difficulty. Note: This feature is only needed for mining devices which do not fully conform to stratum protocol. These devices seem to have a firmware bug that causes them to ignore the difficulty setting provided by vardiff algorithm.
Strenghtened Infrastructure
  • The pool application is now a large scale application distributed in a cluster of computing nodes over many data centers.
