To host a Noso Coin pool, you need a wallet and consopool software. A multicore system and at least 4GB of ram are also recommended. When running a public pool, make sure your pool port is accessible from the Internet. Information on how to port forward is publicly available via a web search.

Step 1

Noso Wallet Add Address

To setup Consopool you will need Noso Wallet to obtain your public and private keys. Download the latest version from Github.com (here). Open your wallet and generate a new address by clicking the “+” in the address bar heading.

Step 2

Consopool configuration

Download the latest version of consopool from Github.com (here)

  • Unzip the downloaded consopool zip file contents into a “consopool” directory.
  • Launch “consopool.exe.” This creates the directory structure and configuration files needed for pool. Close consopool. Locate the “consopool.cfg” file.
  • Open the consopool.cfg file with a text editor and using the address you just created in your wallet, modify the pooladdress.

Step 3

Open Noso Wallet console

expkeys (your address)
  • Type expkeys “yourpooladdress.” This command “copies” your public key followed by private key into clipboard {publickey} {privatekey} separated by white space.
  • Paste the “copied” keys from your clipboard into their respective fields, {publickey privatekey} in the consopool.cfg file.

Fill in the additional fields:

  • poolport – TCP port your pool listens on
  • diffbase – Minimum number of leading zeros the pool will accept from miners
  • poolfee – Percentage this pool will charge as a fee to miners
  • poolpay – Block pay interval
  • ipminers – Maximum number of miners the pool will accept
  • autostart – Automatically start pool when application is launched
  • autodiff – Automatically adjust the diffbase
  • autovalue – If pool restarts, if the count of shares of last block >= {number}, it will keep the diffbase, otherwise, it decrease it by one zero

Step 4

Launch consopool.exe. Pool automatically starts once it is launched and shows “Pool server started” below the cursor. Type help for a list of commands.

Your pool is now running and can be accessed by miners.
