Just point your miner to one of:
Set your username to your bitcoin address with any or even no worker extension, and any password.
eg: cgminer -o stratum+tcp://solo.mining-pool.io:3333 -u 1CArLeSkmBT1BkkcADtNrHoLSgHVhBcesk.0 -p x
If you enter an invalid bitcoin address your connection will be dropped.
Large mining farms.
Regular miners struggling to recoup costs who wish to take extra risk for greater reward potential for part or all of their hashrate.
Inefficient/old miners that will never earn any rewards through regular mining, that wish to leave it as a lottery.
The last backup for all miners who don't have a solo setup or wish to avoid the overheads of running one.
Miners with many devices wishing to consolidate all into a single connection are recommended to use the complementary ckpool code as ckproxy stratum proxy.
ckpool code is available at the bottom of this page (for linux).
Simple total pool statistics can be found at /stats. Also minimal per user or per worker information is available,
to access this append your bitcoin address with or without workername at the end of https://solo.mining-pool.io/stats/
Feel free to bookmark or connect your monitors to your stats urls.
Advantages over regular solo mining:
Mining at solo.mining-pool.io avoids the overheads of running a full bitcoin node that requires both great storage and bandwidth for optimal performance.
solo.mining-pool.io is connected to bitcoinrelaynetwork.org for rapid block change notification and propagation.
Unlike regular pools, ckpool never mines transaction-free blocks due to its ultra-scaleable code which has miners on both new blocks and transactions concurrently.
How it works:
ckpool automatically takes your bitcoin address and gives you a unique stratum connection mining to your own address.
If you find a block, 100% of the 12.5BTC + transaction fees get generated directly at your bitcoin address!
As you remain anonymous (apart from your bitcoin address), there is no need to worry about passwords, logins, withdrawals, authentication or pool wallet hacks.
You may confirm that you are mining to your own address by examining the coinbase sent to you over stratum.
Note that if you do not find a block, you get no reward at all with solo mining.
