Changing Pool Difficulty — TheGrinPool.com

Adjust difficulty to your mining needs

TheGrinPool now allows you to adjust difficulty. Increasing difficulty is good for miners who have a large amount of hash and want to reduce the bandwidth you use.

When you increase difficulty it means you send in fewer shares but they are worth more — a difficulty of 2 means miner sends half of the shares but each share is worth more.

See below for config examples:

(BMINER) Default Config:
PWD=x
./bminer -uri $SCHEME://$USERNAME:$PWD@$POOL -api 127.0.0.1:1880

(BMINER) Config with difficulty set to 20:
PWD=diff=20
./bminer -uri $SCHEME://$USERNAME:$PWD@$POOL -api 127.0.0.1:1880

(GMINER) Default Config:
PWD=x
#!/bin/sh
./miner — algo $SCHEME — server $POOL — port $PORT — user $USERNAME — pass $PWD

(GMINER) Config with difficulty set to 20:
PWD=diff=20
#!/bin/sh
./miner — algo $SCHEME — server $POOL — port $PORT — user $USERNAME — pass $PWD
