Hi again guys,
In this video I’m doing something a bit different. This will be a 3 part series on building your own bitcoin mining pool using open source software for fun and for profit.
I am using VMWare Workstation 10 running Ubuntu 14.04 – any linux distribution will work however. The network is in bridged mode and for this to work so that outside clients can connect you will nee to forward your ports on your router appropriately or rent a virtual private server
I am using the cryptocoin: guncoin as an example in this build but you can use any coin you like. The reason I went with guncoin is that I’m on a limited time schedule and my internet connection is quite slow so downloading the entire litecoin blockchain would have been a hindrance to me.
Part 1: Building and compiling the wallet
Part 2: Building and configuring the stratum server
Part 3: Building and configuring the Web Front End and final testing
Dependencies you will need (run these commands in this order before you start to make sure everything will work as expected):
sudo apt-get install git screen watch
sudo apt-get install build-essential libboost-all-dev libcurl4-openssl-dev libdb5.1-dev libdb5.1++-dev mysql-server
sudo apt-get install python-twisted python-mysqldb python-dev python-setuptools python-memcache python-simplejson python-pylibmc
sudo easy_install -U distribute
sudo apt-get install memcached php5-memcached php5-mysqlnd php5-curl php5-json libapache2-mod-php5
sudo apache2ctl -k stop; sleep 2; sudo apache2ctl -k start
