Stratum will be shutdown 17/11 - Website will be shutdown 25/11 - See news article on frontpage
Garlicpool Closeure - The End
posted 11/13/2018 20:18:37 by smiba

We had some fun, time to pack it up.

Garlicpool started around January this year to support the community with a stable, trustworthy pool.
The execution went quite well, we quickly ranked up in the Top 3 mining pools for garlicoin with a near perfect uptime!

However its time has come, as the communitly slowed down and slowly got emptier I got less and less involved with the coin.
At the current moment the pool does not run a profit (actually it hasn't ran profit for months). This combined with my non-involvement with the coin made me decide running this pool is not something I want to keep on doing for the foreseeable future.

The pool schedule is as follows:
17-11: Stratum will shut down
25-11: Website will shut down (Get your coins out!)
01-12: Garlium.garlicpool.org will shut down (Garlium v1)

TBD: faucet.garlicpool.org - May stay up as long as it doesn't require much maintenance OR until it runs dry
TBD: garlicdownload.org - Might shut down around the same time as the website, undecided but its outdated anyways

If there are a lot of accounts with over $3 worth of garlic left over at the end of this period I might create a solution to still receive your coins, however right now almost everyone is using automatic payments thankfully :)

Update: The issues should be resolved. Your browser might still give an warning if it hasn't updated his SafeBrowsing database yet. That should happen within 1 day

-----

As some of you may have noticed (or will notice) - Google SafeBrowsing supported browsers will now give a big fat red warning when visiting garlicpool.org

We've already contacted google but it will at least take until the next refresh (24 hours) before its fully gone.
For now please ignore the warning and just visit the website.

Our website is marked because we're hosting the Allium CPUMiner, which google doesn't like.
The downloads have moved to https://garlicdownload.org/ for now - Wondering how long that one will stay online before our favorite company "Google" marks it as well :)

Thanks Big Brother!

High difficulty stratum nodes for big miners
posted 01/25/2018 02:47:44 by smiba

For miners with over 250MH/s of power we've created two stratum servers with a fixed difficulty


This is most likely NOT needed on Allium anymore, but is still in place from the scrypt-n days. You can use this on allium though!

We recommend using the following stratum nodes:

250MH-600MH/s: stratum+tcp://eu.stratum.garlicpool.org:3334 (512 diff) (EU)
250MH-600MH/s: stratum+tcp://us.stratum.garlicpool.org:3334 (512 diff) (US)

600MH/s+: stratum+tcp://eu.stratum.garlicpool.org:3335 (1024 diff) (EU)
600MH/s+: stratum+tcp://us.stratum.garlicpool.org:3335 (1024 diff) (US)

600MH/s and more: stratum+tcp://us.stratum.garlicpool.org:4444 (1024 - 12288 vardiff) (US only)

Happy mining!

The winners of our 150MH/s event are in!

Event: Your chance to win 15 Garlicoin!
posted 01/22/2018 12:44:58 by smiba

New event

We're currently at 22MH/s, which is pretty cool concidering garlicoin was released less then 24 hours ago.
Also its been 8 hours without an ongoing event, so I'd say its about time for another one!!

What is the event about

In this event we will give away 5 Garlicoin to a random miner that is mining when we hit 150MH/s!

There will also be two smaller prices, the total will be as follows:
1st price: 15 Garlicoin
2nd price: 5 Garlicoin
3rd price: 1 Garlicoin

Alright cool, how can I participate?

Just mine along! Every share you've submitted in the last 15 minutes when we hit our 150MH/s goal will count.
(We will do the amount of shares times the difficulty, so its fair)

So tell your friends, family, cat and fellow garlic miners: Come join!

If you need any help getting your miner to work or have any other questions: Let us know in our Discord channel
Happy mining!
