This is the approved revision of this page, as well as being the most recent.

Eligius, also sometimes referred to as √Čloi or "Luke-Jr's pool", is a mining pool. As of October 23, 2012, Eligius is maintained by wizkid057.

To use it, a miner merely needs to be directed to stratum.mining.eligius.st on port 3334, with the username set to a valid bitcoin address (which receives the payout). No registration is needed.

Basic concepts:

  • The pool charges no fees and shares are managed under the CPPSRB reward system at 100% value at the time of mining.
  • When a block is found, all miners who have reached the minimum payout threshold (currently about 0.04 BTC and is configurable) are paid via the Generation transaction.
  • The pool almost never has miner's funds, as they are paid directly to the miners from the block reward.
  • If a block is orphaned, its shares become part of the next block's reward distribution.
  • No registration; bitcoin addresses are used for usernames.
  • A signed message based control panel was added for securely setting options for miners, including Namecoin merged mining and donation amounts.

Eligius was announced on April 27, 2011. At the time the service was operated without a name, paying out even tiny coins immediately.

The coinbase signature for this pool is: "Eligius".
