Welcome Guest :)

I hope all our miners and their friends and families have a safe break for Easter (if you get one, if not, tough luck!).

Let's see how many of us we can get signed up at the official Maxcoin forums.

Welcome to the MaxCoin NZ & International Pool

Welcome to our humble Maxcoin pool. We have been operating since the release of Maxcoin and have been listed as an approved pool by the official Maxcoin development team.

Although we are relatively small and we find blocks less often, your share in each block is much larger than if you were to mine in a bigger pool - so in the long run you earn about the same amount of MAX. We charge 0% fees so your MAX earning potential is maximized.

We encourage you to join in the chat on the dashboard and have as much fun as possible!

Getting Started Guide

1. Create account.

  • Register here, or login if you already have account
  • Create a worker that will be used by the miner to login

2. Download a miner.

  • For NVidia cards, use cudaminer. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=167229.0
  • For ATI cards, use cgminer. https://github.com/Eropi4/cgminer_keccak/releases

3. Configure your miner.

Settings for Stratum (recommended):

Password:Worker Password

If you use a command-line miner, type:

  • Cudaminer
  • ./cudaminer --algo=keccak -l K1024x32 -L 128 -o stratum+tcp://pool.maxcoin.co.nz:3333 -u Weblogin.Worker -p Worker password

    You will need to try your own values of 'K1024x32' to suit your machine. For more information see the README file in the cudaminer download.

  • CGMiner
  • ./cgminer --keccak -o stratum+tcp://pool.maxcoin.co.nz:3333 -u Weblogin.Worker -p Worker password

    If you want, you can create additional workers with usernames and passwords of your choice here

    4. Create a Maxcoin address to recieve payments.

    • Downloading the client & block chain: Download the Maxcoin client from here.

      Generate a new address and input it on your account page to receive payments.

    We've moved to 0% fees indefinitely to help support the maxcoin community.

    Enjoy miners!

    Payout Settings, posted Feb 10, 2014 at 00:12 by MaxCoin NZ

    Everyone should set their payments details in 'My Account' -> 'Edit Account'

    I recommend setting the 'Automatic Payment Threshold' to 0.5 so you get paid as quickly as possible.

    Donations are welcome if you can afford it.

    Have a great time!

    Found our first block!, posted Feb 10, 2014 at 00:06 by MaxCoin NZ

    Congratulations and thanks everyone!

    We found our first block, and the payouts have been confirmed and sent. Enjoy your MAX!

    Launch!, posted Feb 9, 2014 at 04:49 by MaxCoin NZ

    We've launched!

    It may take a while to get our first block, but when we do you will get a larger share of the block reward, so just be patient and you'll get what you deserve!

    We will be annoucing some giveaways on our twitter @maxcoinnz so follow us and keep mining to be in to win some free MAX!
