Welcome to solo.ckpool.org!

No frills, no fuss 2% fee anonymous solo bitcoin mining for everyone

No registration required, no payment schemes no pool op wallets

This is a NOT-FOR-PROFIT pool, all care is given but no responsibility is taken in the event of an issue with the pool

Note: This is NOT a pool despite its name, it is a service to allow miners to mine solo as you cannot mine directly to a bitcoin core node

Support thread

Just point your miner to:

Miners that require a high diff, such as mining rentals, there is a special high diff port for them:

Set your username to your btcaddress with any or even no worker extension, and any password.
eg: cgminer -o stratum+tcp://solo.ckpool.org:3333 -u 1PKN98VN2z5gwSGZvGKS2bj8aADZBkyhkZ.0 -p x
If you enter an invalid address you will be rejected

Note that solo.ckpool.org supports both IPV4 and IPV6 transparently.
You may wish to find which is lower latency for you and specify one or the other directly.
IPV4 is solo4.ckpool.org
IPV6 is solo6.ckpool.org

Suitable for:

Proxy support:
Miners with many devices wishing to consolidate their devices into a single connection to solo ckpool are recommended to use the complementary ckpool code as ckproxy stratum proxy (for linux).
A simple to set up ckproxy on Ubuntu/Debian for solopool can be installed by running this script: setupsoloproxy.sh
Ckpool code is available here: ckpool

Simple total pool statistics can be found at pool

Solo.ckpool.org currently only displays minimal per user and worker information.
To access user statistics, enter your BTC address below:

or append your username to: http://solo.ckpool.org/users/

Advantages over regular solo mining:
Mining at solo.ckpool.org avoids the overheads of running a full bitcoin node that requires both great storage and bandwidth for optimal performance.
Solo.ckpool.org is extensively connected to high speed low latency bitcoin nodes for rapid block change notification and propagation.
Unlike regular pools, ckpool never mines transaction-free blocks due to its ultra-scaleable code which has miners on both new blocks and transactions concurrently.

How it works:
ckpool automatically takes your bitcoin address and gives you a unique stratum connection mining to your own address.
If you find a block, 98% of the block reward + transaction fees get generated directly at your bitcoin address!
There is no need to worry about passwords, logins, withdrawals, authentication or pool wallet hacks.
You remain anonymous apart from your btc address.
You do not need to the following unless you wish to confirm the validity of the pool's behaviour:
All you need to confirm you are mining to your own address is to examine the coinbase and template sent to you over stratum.
Note that if you do not find a block, you get no reward at all with solo mining.
2% goes to 1PKN98VN2z5gwSGZvGKS2bj8aADZBkyhkZ to operate the pool and contribute to further ckpool code maintenance.
