    Dwarfpool

    Dwarfpool (Dwarfpool) - one of the first pools for mining, which began its work back in 2013. Dwarfpool supports CryptoNight and ETHASH algorithms, while it has a meager list of cryptocurrencies for mining. At the time of writing, the site offers miners mining Monero (XMR), Ethereum BIG (ETH) and Expanse (EXP). However, the service has never been distinguished by a wide variety of coins. The development team focused more on quality rather than quantity.

    Dwarfpool miners are rewarded for two systems: RBPPS (for mining XMR) and HBPPS (for mining ETH and EXP). Dwarfpool's reviews are mostly positive, but some users complain about payout issues.

    If you want to weigh the pros and cons, read our detailed review of Dwarfpool.

    What is Dwarfpool

    Dwarfpool is old , the main advantage of which is the complete anonymity of users. The service does not even require miners to register.

    In addition, the Dwarfpool team notes other benefits of the service:

    • Versatility - the pool supports working with all well-known GPU and CPU miners;
    • Efficient mining - an optimized coin mining system with a minimum reject ratio;
    • Reliable mining - the service uses powerful servers with protection against DDoS attacks located in different parts of the world, any of which can secure an uninterrupted mining process in case of unforeseen circumstances;
    • Support for auto payments;
    • Function for monitoring workers - you will be able to receive notifications by e-mail if your device is disconnected from the server;
    • Detailed statistics.

    Unlike most other pools, Dwarfpool pays a fee directly to the miner's wallet when the minimum amount is accumulated. Payments are possible, including to exchange wallets.

    ☝️
    The pool holds a commission of 1% for Ethereum mining and 1.5% for Monero, while mining of Expanse tokens is free.

    The official site of Dwarfpool is presented very modestly, without excessive pomp and bells and whistles, so lovers of beautiful pictures will most likely be disappointed.

    The service only supports English, which is by far the main drawback for Russian-speaking users. Nevertheless, the site support service is ready to answer any of your questions 24/7 in Russian, German or English.

    It is also important to note that the use of the site is closed to miners from 16 countries, including Belarus and Crimea.

    By the way, using an email address as a password, you can monitor the operation of your device, receiving automatic Email notifications.

    It should be noted that the developers of Dwarfpool recommend using only electronic mailboxes from the providers gmail.com, yandex.ru, qq.com, yahoo.com.

     

    At the same time, Dwarfpool does not support working with such popular mailboxes as mail.ru, mail.com, icloud.com, outlook.com and a number of other providers.

    During the mining setup, you will need to select a server. Dwarfpool servers are located in Canada, France, USA, China, Russia. The user can choose any of the proposed ones, but the developers advise to select the server closest to your location as the main one, and set the rest as backup.

    In addition to using e-mail to control the mining process, you can also use applications for your smartphone.

    ☝️
    Unfortunately, the project does not yet have an official application for monitoring the operation of devices, but several worthy developments are available on Google Play , which display mining statistics on Dwarfpool.

    The pool has a rather specific interface and it will be difficult for beginners to quickly figure out what's what. But in our Dwarfpool review, we will help you go through all the configuration steps without any problems.

    Of course, it is advisable to start with calculating profitability. The developers prudently created a calculator button in the pool data block, but it refers to an unavailable service. Therefore, you will have to calculate the profitability of mining independently on third-party services, such as Whattomine , RedMiner , etc.

    It is also very important to read the Pool features section on the left side of the screen. Here are the main features of the pool: benefits, the system of accrual of remuneration, commission, etc.

    Installing the miner

    Next, you need to download and install the miner. To do this, scroll to the Ethereum page below and go to the “Getting started Ethereum” section. This section focuses on miner configuration tips and download links.

    The developers of the pool advise using ethminer for ETH mining, but users of the pool note that This utility does not always work correctly with Windows.

    ☝️
    Experienced miners recommend giving preference Claymor's Dual Ethereum Miner , which works stably with Windows and Linux, and is also considered the best speed program booty.

    To download the program for mining from the Dwarfpool website, click on the link in accordance with your OS. If you decide to use other software, just download it from a trusted resource.

    As an example, we will take the mining setup using Claymor's Dual Ethereum.

     

    The downloaded archive with the miner must be unpacked and saved on the computer.

    Configuring the bat file and launching mining

    In order to configure the operation miner for the pool, you need to find the bat-file in the list of downloaded files and make some changes to it.

    In our case, the configuration file is called “Start.bat”. Click on the file with the left mouse button and click "Change." You will see a text document. Next, you need to register the pool address, port, server, wallet address in it. Let's consider in more detail.

    “EthDcrMiner64.exe -epool” leave unchanged.

    After -epool we introduce: eth-ru2.dwarfpool.com:8008 , where

    eth-ru2.dwarfpool.com - the address of the pool through the Moscow server. You can choose another server from those offered on the site (Singapore, Melbourne, France, Montreal, etc.), but the developers recommend choosing the server closest to your location;

    : 8008 - the port for mining.

    In the line -ewal we write down the wallet address for withdrawing the extracted coins. By the way, Dwarfpool supports including exchange wallets for Ethereum .

    In the line -eworker we write the name of your device, for example “komp1” .

    In the line -epsw we indicate the password. If you want to have access to monitoring the work of workers via email, specify the email address as a password.

    At the end of the code, write “-allcoins 1” since we can only use one cryptocurrency and you can add the command “pause” so that the miner suspends work if errors occur. The rest of the data in the file is not editable.

    The final version of the code should look like the screenshot below:

    Setting the bat file

    Save and close bat file. And after that, start “Start.bat” using the left mouse button. That's it, mining has begun.

    The minimum payout for Ethere is set by default on Dwarfpool - 1.01 ETH.

    For most miners, this is too much, so the pool makes it possible to reduce it to 0.01 ETH through manual tuning.

    To do this, you need to go through authorization on the site through the IP address of your device. You can find out the IP address using the site 2ip.ru or in the settings of your computer.

    Now we go to the statistics section and go down to the very bottom of the page to the “Control” block. In the field below, specify the IP address and click the authorization button. By the way, 2 digits are visible in this field - they serve as a hint and should match your real IP.
