Answers to frequently asked questions
Dear miners, today we are once again expanding our service. We have heard your suggestions and present to you: party mining!
For those of you who remember our story about Peter and Maria — now Maria has a real chance to mine together with friends on a private pool, distributing profit among themselves*.

Party mining on bsod.pw — what is this?

Thanks to party mining you have a possibility to combine your hashing power and mine together, but at the same time you shouldn’t worry about profit distribution. bsod.pw will do that automatically depending on hashing power of each user.

Party mining on bsod.pw — how to use?

First, you need to create unique password. Passwords “bsod_rulezz”, “bsod#1” are hard to brute force but not really unique**. (:
After you have created your password, just add it to your miner configuration: “m=party.<PARTY_PASSWORD>” in the password field.
CMD\BAT file for party mining would look like this:
-a <ALGO> -o stratum+tcp://<location>.bsod.pw:<PORT> -u WALLET.worker -p m=party.<PARTY_PASSWORD>
Don’t forget to share your password with your friends! As soon as they add it to their mining software — you will immediately start mining together on your own private pool.

How to monitor party’s mining stats?

Additional info is accessible from the wallet page by clicking on the “Extra” column:

Here you can find info about every wallet which belongs to this party and check its stats:




*Recommended computing power 1% of the network or more.

This is normal and can happen occasionally. The reason for this is that the pool doesn't know your real hashrate. It shows you an estimation based on the shares you send. It depends on your number of shares, their difficulty, even your luck at solving shares and if there were any rejects. All of these aren't constant, so the hashrate on the pool will not be constant but can fluctuate during the hour. If you look on the 24h average it should be +- the same to what is shown on your miner, if you weren't having a huge unlucky streak and/or lots of rejects.
We do!

It's frowned upon to mine to an exchange wallet. That wallet is given to exchange users to make a deposit from a local address, not to mine to it, and exchanges don't like it. We can't forbid you to mine directly to an exchange, but if any problems arise it's on you. We recommend to always install a wallet locally and generate your own address to which you control a private key.
Pool payment method used: Prop.
Payouts are made automatically every 2 hours for balances above 0.1. For balances above 0.01 payouts are made on Sunday 19:00 UTC. The process is automatic and can't be controlled.
