What is the pool jackpot?

Technical

How do I set a fixed difficulty?

You can set a fixed difficulty by adding adding a “.” and your chosen difficulty at the end of your wallet ID within your config files.

Example for a fixed difficulty of 2000:

Ensure you find a good medium, too low and you could be banned for share spamming (plus low shares won’t earn as much BCN)

Why does it say I have earned 0 BCN?

This pool uses a proportional mining method, therefore your stats will only update once a block is unlocked. You may feel like you’re earning less compared to other pool methods, but you’ll realize shortly after a block is unlocked that a proportional pool is much more rewarding.

Why was I banned?

Our pool uses a very aggressive form of banning, this is to protect your profits as well as our server. The most common reason for a ban is that you were submitting invalid shares, this is usually due to outdated mining software. Most bans are only temporary and you can continue mining within 5 minutes. However, if you are caught attacking the pool or making any malicious attempts against the pool, you will be banned permanently, no questions asked.
