Siacoin (SC) Stratum Mining Pool Now Available in Beta

18 Jul


The first Siacoin (SC) mining pool with Stratum support by Suprnova is now available in beta and you are welcome to give it a try and report your experience with it. In theory the stratum support should result in further reducing the stale shares and improving efficiency, so if everything works fine you should be able to mine more coins for the same time. Again, a reminder that the pool is still in beta and since it was just recently launched it still has not found a block, but in order to attract users to test it out there is currently a promotion giving away 20% Bonus for every Block found on the pool. Do note that the pool requires a special fork of sgminer with support for Stratum for Siacoin (source).

Below you can find a 64-bit Windows binary of the miner for Siacoin (SC) mining that you need to use for mining on the pool. Our initial tests have shown that the miner offers similar performance to the one you can get with the Siacoin Go pool miner on other pools or just a bit faster with higher intensity. You may experiment with the settings and report what works best on your hardware, we have tested the miner on both AMD and Nvidia GPUs and it works fine on both. Again a reminder that the Siacoin stratum pool is still in beta, so it is for testing only and you might want to move just one GPU for example and not transfer all of your hashrate.

Tryed a bit on win8.1 and four EVGA GTX 970.
With I=25 it froze at once, had to get down to 20 – 21 but then the hash rate was rather low, around 700 – 800 for per card.

does it support go miner or claymore dual miner?

The pool only supports Stratum mining with the linked sgminer fork, other miners will not work for the moment.

Meanwhile the pool has managed to find its first block…

To admin:
How is this pool paid? PPS or PPLNS? And what is the fee rate? I didnt see any introductions related to these concerns of mine.
Thank you for your reply!

NVIDIA 1070 can’t do it


July 19th, 2016 at 18:13

Anyone have an example of an nvidia bat?


July 19th, 2016 at 18:34

I got 1.8 MHs by removing the I-20 on my 970.


July 19th, 2016 at 18:40

500 average MH on GTX 780ti. Using this .bat: sgminer -k sia -o stratum+tcp:// -u Ziefa.ziefa -p x -I 25


July 19th, 2016 at 20:13

What are the max -I settings for this miner?
I am using -I 29 on 380X card and get 886MHs
But can this be higher?

Since the pool is in beta it does not yet have a fee, instead there is a 20% bonus to attract more miners.

The default config for MPOS pools is proportional, meaning that whenever a block is found, the reward is distributed among all workers proportionally to how much shares each of them has submitted.

The maximum intensity for sgminer is 31, however different GPUs can handle different levels of intensity. Intensity of 25 should work on most cards and is a good starting point, though you may try lowering it if it gives you trouble or increasing it if everything seems Ok.

Something not right with this pool. Miners says I hit several Blocks yet pool claims no blocks since yesterday. 71 SC for 12 hours mining? Bargain!


July 20th, 2016 at 09:19

deggy, these are not actual blocks found on the pool. The hashrate of the pool is still relatively small and with bad luck it can take a lot of time to hit a block, again a reminder that the pool is in beta, so do not throw all your hashrate at it. The first two blocks were lucky, apparently the next one is not…


July 20th, 2016 at 11:19

Yeeah, no doubt. Bloody web page keeps beeping at me to say block. And then nothing.. Damned Tease :D
