About Balkan Mining Pool

Balkan Mining Pool is a NIMIQ Pool founded in March 2020 by a group of friends in order to support and share knowledge about NIMIQ throughout Balkan countries.

Minimum payout is 10 NIM and payouts happen automatically every 2 hours.

Current pool fee is 1% and we don't plan on increasing it.

Pool address: pool.balkanminingpool.com:8444

Install the Nimiq Miner

Configure the miner

By adding '//' at the beginning of a line you disable it. This is called commenting a line

Comment the following lines:

cert: “./my.domain.cer”, -> //cert: “./my.domain.cer”,
key: “./my.domain.key” -> //key: "./my.domain.key"

Configure this line (note that you also need to uncomment it) :

//protocol: “wss”, -> protocol: “dumb”,

In the miner section, configure the miner to be enabled (you only have to uncomment it):

//enabled: “yes”, -> enabled: “yes”,

In the pool mining section, enable pool mining by uncommenting the line:

//enabled: “yes”, -> enabled: “yes”,

Configure Balkan Pool

//host: “pool.domain”, -> host: “pool.balkanminingpool.com:8444”,

Add your address

And finally start the miner.
