DOGE STREET is no longer operational as of 15th July 2014. Previously, we hosted a proxypool that fed into the P2Pool network.
The P2Pool network is a collection of mining pools all running the P2Pool software (anyone can join!). It allows mining to be decentralised, distributed and with no central pool server.
However as the P2Pool network grows, it becomes harder for miners to get shares and many miners experience hour long 'dry spells' with no payout.
Proxy pools solve this problem by creating sub-pools that feed into the P2Pool network, each one managing the payouts for miners under them. This will allow the P2Pool network to scale to many times its current size while ensuring fair payout for all patrons.
Since the pool is no longer operational, the backend has been open sourced in the proxypool repository
It features a Capped PPS with Recent Back Pay payout system, requires no registration, and threshold autopayout.
