To provide a better experience for our mining community we are adding two new regional mining pools with improved infrastructure for better scalability and lower latency. The current mining pool (mine1.marconi.org) will be decommissioned as part of this process so it’s important that miners update to the two new pools. There are two ways to update to the new pools:
Today, miners can start using the new pools to immediately benefit from the improved performance and scalability. It just takes a simple config change.
1) Go to the directory where marconi-stak is installed.2) Edit pools.txt with your favorite editor3) In the “pool_list” section of the file4) Update “mine1.marconi.org” to “mine2.marconi.org” for the US West or “mine3.marconi.org” for Asia region5) Save the changes6) Stop the marconi-stak process7) Start the marconi-stak process
2) Automatic Migration
Anyone still mining via the current mining pool (mine1.marconi.org) will be automatically migrated to one of the new pools on Tuesday, September 3 at 2pm PST. At that time the DNS settings for mine1.marconi.org will be updated to point to mine2.marconi.org (US West). It can take up to 24 hours or more for the DNS update to propagate to a miner and when that happens they may notice a temporary disconnect in their logs. Note that if there are many miners attempting to reconnect at the same time it may take several attempts before a connection is successfully established.
Rest assured that all pool payouts will be completed before the current mining pools is fully decommissioned.
