The First HOdlcoin Mining Pool is Now Available

26 Mar


We have recently covered HOdlcoin (HODL) as an interesting new altcoin. For the moment HODL is only CPU mineable and you could only mine it solo with the wallet, but the first mining pool is now available with a dedicated hodlminer CPU miner (source). The miner supports Stratum and you can control how many CPU cores you want to utilize to mine HODL, however at this point it does seem to be slower than the built in CPU ‌mining in the wallet. With hodlminer we are getting just about 1/4th of the hashrate we get in the wallet or just about 45-50 H/s as compared to about 200 Hashes per second in the wallet (under Windows 7) using an Intel Core i7 5820K CPU (6 cores – 12 threads). So you might want to wait for a more optimized miner to become available and keep solo mining for the moment in order to have higher hashrate available. Using pool mining does provide lower rewards per block, but also should ensure stable and more predictable mining income, unlike when solo mining at this already pretty high difficulty where luck plays a lot of role in how much you will make.

Update: New faster version of the miner is now available that should provide slightly higher hashrate than what you are getting using the wallet miner, increase should be something like 10-20% or more, but it can vary, so you need to test and compare. Just download the updated binary and try on your CPU and feel free to post result in the comments below.

If you use the pool miner on Ubuntu (like a VPS), you will need the following packages:
sudo apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev
sudo apt-get install libjansson-dev

To download and install:
wget “”
tar -xzf hodlminer.tar.gz
cd hodlcoin
./configure CFLAGS=”-O3″
sudo make install

Run the miner with:
./hodlminer -a hodl -o stratum+tcp:// -u Weblogin.WorkerName -p WorkerPassword -t 8 where t = # of threads

Unfortunately, I think something is wrong with my VPS from Cloud At Cost which has 10 cores/vCPUs and is only getting about 3.6 hashes per second. I wonder if others are having this issue.

EDIT: You do need a ./ right before ./configure.
