Welcome to new Gulden mining pool

F.A.Q.
  1. Why Lucky Pool?
    • Most important! Lucky Pool is created by miners for miners. It's our highest priority to provide you with a transparent pool,
      Where everything is tracable and nothing is hidden.
      Our servers are located in Paris France, Directly connected to the US and the rest of Europe and Russia.
  2. When will I get paid?
    • We run payouts every 5 minutes.
  3. How does the pool determine my payouts?
    • This pool uses the following payout system. (PPLNS) Pay Per Last 1 000 000 Shares Payouts Explained. A PPLNS pool means miners are simply paid out when a block is found. No blocks, no payout!
  4. How long does it take before I can withdraw my coins?
    • Coins generated by a block will not be available to you right away. They will take some time to be confirmed by the entire network before you are allowed to transfer them out of the pool. Usually coins have a confirmation set to 120. What that actually means: the network (not the pool) has to discover 120 additional blocks on top of the one found by the pool to confirm it. The amount of confirmations needed for each currency can be found inside every pool, From the menu: Statistics => Blocks.
  5. What is an Orphan Block?
    • Detached or Orphaned blocks are valid blocks which are not part of the main chain. They can occur naturally when two miners produce blocks at similar times or they can be caused by an attacker (with enough hashing power) attempting to reverse transactions.
  6. What is estimated payout?
    • Estimated payout is your estimated payout if a block is found at that time. This is an estimate according to your amount of shares submitted for the round(s).
  7. What is a share?
    • Finding blocks is not an easy task. Since it would take a really long time on some coins, finding a block is broken down into shares. Depending on the server side setting, each share can be a certain difficulty. The more difficult each share is to find by miners, the fewer total shares are required to eventually find a block. On the server side, each share is checked against the coin daemon (a server side wallet with more features) if it is indeed a valid block solution. Every share computed has the potential to be a block solution. I will not go into details why this is, but rest assured that share estimates for blocks can sometimes be exceeded. In the long run though, shorter round with less shares than required will make up for those taking very long. Keep in mind: shares are not blocks! Shares are part of a block and will count towards the block payout! At times, you will see shares being rejected by the pool. This can happen if you try to send an outdated share right after a block was found. Stratum, a protocol used by a miner to request work from a server, is used for share submission and getting new work. It is very solid when it comes to avoiding rejects but they can still happen once in a while. If you are seeing reject all the time, then something isn't working right on your end. You may also notice that your hashrate on the pool website is not increasing while your invalid share count keeps climbing up. In that case turn off your miner and check your settings!
  8. I am having problems connecting to the pool.
    • Double check your settings against our getting started page.
  9. My Hashrate is not showing on the pool.
    • 9 Out of 10 times the problem lies in the workername, double check your workername on missing capitals etc. Also make sure your miner is delivering shares accepted in the command screen, if you do not see any accepted shares our pool does not show any hashrate. In this case make sure the pool difficulty is not to high for your miner. You can check what difficutly is being used on a port here: getting started page. You can also set the difficulty yourself by using d="Your desired diff number" as your password in your miner software.
