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 proposals driven by your hash rate.
Submit your own idea about how the pool should change and let everybody to vote.
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 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.
The pool application is now a large scale application distributed in a cluster of computing nodes over many data centers.
