FAQ

Q: What pool software are you running at MinerMore?

The website for MinerMore was written completely from scratch in a mix of languages, mostly PHP. The stratum servers we use depend on the coin. Most of our coins run on our own stratum server that we call NOMM. It is based on the stratum-pool NodeJS module.

Q: How do you mitigate against DDOS attacks?

Like everyone else, our website is protected behind CloudFlare. Our stratum servers were developed in-house and the code is not publicized. Newly discovered vulnerabilities to other stratum servers (such as yiimp or NOMP) probably do not affect MinerMore. In the events of cripplings DDOS attacks (such as the ones that hit all Ravencoin pools in mid June) we are able to quickly move the stratum servers to different IPs to try to stay ahead of the attackers.

Q: Where are your servers located?

All traffic coming into MinerMore is currently directed into a central load balancer at Amazon's AWS service, located in the Washington DC area. We then further route the requests to our stratum servers that are situated around the world. We utilize services at a great number of different data centers around the world.

As MinerMore grows, we will add additional load balancer entry points in physical locations around the world, in an effort to improve the latency of our international miners.

Q: What payout reward type do you use?

All payouts on MinerMore use PPLNS - Pay Per Last N Shares. Similar to proportional, but instead of considering shares in a round, it considers shares in a window going backwards through a window the size of our block time to find. Shares are also weighted according to the difficulty of the block being worked mined. Full technical details of how our PPLNS works can be found on our "Payouts Explained".
