Hello mineres and fellows,

First i want to introduce myself. I am active user of bitcointalk (same user name) with Legendary account there. I want to bring to your attention my new creation TechnoBIT  LTC solo pool - http://ltc.tbdice.org/

I am not going to copy paste home page. All info is there in case you are interested.
What you can not find in the home page is that pool is running on dedicated quad core server with 32G of ram + Intel SSD + two litecoin daemons (primary and backup which are well connected) and with gigabit backbone connectivity ;)

There is http://testnet.ltc.tbdice.org for you to try it.
All is working rock solid and tested. I am mining with PC for the moment but i hope to have some asics next week to push the pool hashrate little up.

Fell free to comment anything related to pool and i will do my best to answer asap.

Thank you for your attention and good luck to you all ;)
Ps:
To Mods
I just saw that there is subsection in mining -Pools. Please move my post there
Thanks

Nope dude. I have not... It is just that way how friends call me in my native language.
Mean while we hit another block a minute ago!

Nope. Those 3gh are not mine. I do not know to whom they belong to but it must be a rented hash. Mine is a cpu minerd just to keep things roling in the beginning.

About free transaction blocks..it is not my thought. The pool is based on solo Bitcoin pool from Con and kano. So home page most of the text is copy pasted from solo.ckpool.org. There is detailed discussion about free transaction blocks on Bitcoin talk. So if you are qurious you can read all about it there. In general the important for you is that we do not do SPV MINING and our litecoin deamon is well conected.

We have had 4 titans running from 3/1/2015 to 8/25/2015 on a pool that paid PPLNS. we found 114 blocks in that time period. That would be 5,700 LTC. We were paid 5,364 LTC.  It looks like we paid pool fees and supplemented the the other miners 366 LTC over that period. In the first 4 days after the Halving we found 4 blocks(100 LTC) and were paid 45.35 LTC. It would seem that we have been being underpaid for the blocks we have found. I am willing to be part of a team and pay a reasonable fee to the pool, but not 390 LTC over 6 months.  Maybe we have just been extra lucky at finding blocks. So now after the Halving and finding 4 blocks but just getting paid about 1 LTC for each block the pool found. We decided to try this new pool ltc.tbdice.org. I also talked two of my buddies with two Titans each to come over and try this pool, because they too were getting about .5 LTC for each block the pools they were on found. The 4 of us are mining to one LTC  address with 8 Titans and splitting the blocks per Titan ourselves. We have found 3 blocks in 2 days. We even got paid 25.05664172 after pool fee on one block because of the earned transaction fees.
I recommend any one with a Titan or 2, or other miner that can still do some decent hashing come over and mine on the pool with us.

.....
Hey Max,
First of all I want to thank you for your kind words..
About MM Doge yes it is not so hard to add it. The tricky part is to make the payout work.
1. First of all you need to be able to provide you doge generation address inside your stratum user or password something like user myltc___mydoge and that needs coding..
2. Pool must be able to calc cb transaction based on that address which is not trival thing to do..but is possible of course.i do not know how much of the server resources will be occupied because of this needs testing
3. Is doge deamon stable?  Is it crashing does it have severe issues? All needs to be tested .... Which requires time

I do not wanna make excuses but in next couple of mounts my time is very limited and i will not be able to dig into it. What can be done is to use pool wallet for doge and then to proces payouts manually after sending me a signed message with your ltc address or something. That is what I want to avoid but it can be used as temp solution. It can be done via simple web page also. Something like pool blocks about doge and a text box where you can copy paste the proof that you are the one who posses the ltc address. And so on...
 As you can see you are the one who broke pool graphs;)  a fix is coming soon. I just need to find some time to do it. As long as it is a php/db issue completely unrelated to pool engine and stratum minig I think we can live with it for a while..
PS
Now charts are fine. Bugs cleared ;)

Up:
There were some routing/network issues in our datacenter tonight which caused short mining interruptions. I am gona check what was going on and probably move server to another hosting location.
Please check in from time to times. I will make announcement for scheduled downtime/maintenance when time comes.

Meanwhile we have found our 8 th block with  nice fat  TX fee 0.33578088.

Best

PS:
I did not get exact answer what the issue was, but i was assured that it wont happen again.
In any case, if there are  similar issues which i can miss (i hope there will not be), so please do report back.
Thanks!

Hey Max,
I think I can play with DOGE and AUX. First of all I want to inform you that all DOGE will be generated to pool wallet adress. There is no easy and quick way for DOGE to go directly to you like ltc.  I want to ask you and all potential miners how hard it will be for you to use litecoin (GUI which I have not seen yet) RPC  signmessage   <litecoinaddress> <message>. The important part is that litecoin address parameter must be equal to your user name. Which means that you will have to run your litecoind. If you use some kind of online wallet there must be some way to do it from their web. In genaral I am planing to make separate block page for DOGE where all solved aux pool blocks will be listed. When block matures there will be button or something like request payment. Then you will need to manualy request payment by filling some text boxes like:

1. Your doge address to recive coins
2. Random text message
3. Signature


Will be that ok?

Best

I think that will be OK. I am more of a hardware guy, but I should be able to figure it out, maybe with a little help.
Thanks!

I am digging to make it other way arround.what I wana do is your pool user name to contain both ltc and doge addres. Something like LTC:DOGE. When someone enters user with ":" character inside (invalid for all address) it will be treated as delimiter. Then your DOGE will be generated to your adress like litecoins ;) to make the long story short
1. Pool will not hold doge coins at all
2. You will not have to sign any messages  ;)
But as I said my time is the limiting factor at the moment. I am working on it of course but it is not happenig so fast like I want.  Pool does not have mm implementation at all. So everything about MM have to be done from zero...

I know that you are kidding ;)  that shit happens from time to times unfortunately. But it was close to be valid just four seconds late

I do have external hook to LTCd to notify pool about block changes. In the same moment (almost we are talking about milliseconds) your miner receives that info also.  But that shit happens ...

As you see I am sure that you miner was aware that this block was stale but submitted winning share just in case ;) :)
Same apples for pool - it checks your job hash and if share difficulty is good enough to solve a block it gets submitted to LTCd just in case:)
Later on pool checks if your share is stale or not and sends you reject:D
You know we have a saying: Hope dies last :P
