When you decide to make your own cryptocurrency mining pool the task is going to be anything but easy. It will need a lot of administrative experience on your part along with ample budget, troubleshooting expertise, patience and in-depth knowledge of how the cryptocurrencies work.
When you start a mining pool you will typically not have enough hash rates at the beginning. This hash rate will not be sufficient for successfully solving problems in order to earn rewards in the cryptocurrency of your choice. So, you will need many other miners to join your pool to improve this hash rate. This increased hash rate will then enable the pool to solve mathematical problems successfully and help you earn rewards in the process. The hash rate will also vary depending on the kind of cryptocurrency you are mining.
Convincing others to join your mining pool is hard when it does not have an impressive hash rate. Pools which are well established will have many miners. So, to build a well established pool you must have access to a huge number of high-end mining machines at a specific time in order to get an impressive hash rate. In general, any high-end machine which has 5 GPUs can be expected to generate 2KH per second and so you will need roughly 128,240 machines like this to get a reasonably powerful hash rate. So, establishing a mining pool on one’s own may turn out to be a difficult proposition.
You will certainly need all the help that you can get and the best way to do this is to convince others to join the pool. Getting others to join your pool when it is so under-powered is not going to be easy and usually, it is never practicable. Thos will mining pools are usually very advanced miners having access to many types of equipment which gives them very high hash rates. This hash rate is so high that such miners usually do not need others to join in. In case other miners do join their pools, they only help to boost the pool power.
To start a mining pool you will need VPS and create user for the pool. You are free to use any username and you will then be asked for a password. This should be distinct from your root password. You can then reboot the VPS server because many packages have been installed in it to start the pool. The compile process takes time when the VPS is small. To set up the mining pool one can use the uNOMP. This is downloaded and updated after which the pool must be configured. With the uNOMP it is possible to have many pools working at the same time.
