Bitcoin mining pool ViaBTC launches US stratum server
Bitcoin mining pool ViaBTC has officially launched its US stratum server, which is an independent mining server. Stratum servers cannot be used on the network; instead, they are directly connected to computers.
After intensive trial and testing, the launch of new stratum allows the company to provide services to users with more stable connection and lower rejection rate. The mining data will be synchronized in real-time with ViaBTC’s data center in China, the blog post stated.
Similar to the Chinese server, the ViaBTC US stratum supports PPS+ mining. ViaBTC’s PPS+ method has combined all the advantages of the conventional PPS and PPLNS, and can deliver more stable and much higher mining yields.
“Under the conventional PPS method, a pool hires the miners’ hashrates to work for it, so they can get stable income no matter how the pool runs. The block reward of 12.5 BTC will be allocated but a growing amount of transaction fee is taken by the pool. While with ViaBTC’s PPS+ method, the transaction fee, which takes up as high as 5% of block reward will be allocated to miners,” the blog stated. “Hence ViaBTC miners will get two parts of yields: one is the theoretical PPS mining income, and the other is transaction fee, which is allocated according to miner’s hashrate share and the actually mined Bitcoins by the pool.”
ViaBTC was launched this year in June and has attracted many miners globally with its stable services and higher mining yields. The mining pool has so far mined 1,800+ blocks and 24,000+ Bitcoins. It recently accomplished ZERO orphan rate, achieved ZERO empty blocks and has been the top runner in network broadcasting.
