What is a stratum proxy?

What is a stratum proxy?

A Stratum mining proxy connects to an upstream mining pool server and to downstream miners through TCP/IP connections. The proxy receives periodic jobs from the pool and broadcasts them to the miners.

What is a stratum URL?

Stratum V2 is a new protocol for pooled mining that we developed in collaboration with Bitcoin developer Matt Corallo. It improves efficiency, prevents man-in-the-middle attacks, and will eventually enable miners to work on their own block templates.

What is stratum used for?

Strata or Stratum are terms used to describe the distance a particular device is from a time source. The further away it is, the less accurate its time sync will be. Strata levels from 0-15 can be used for NTP time synchronisation. Stratum 0 describes a time source like an internal atomic clock or GNSS signal.

What does stratum TCP mean?

Technically Stratum is a line-based protocol using plain TCP socket, with payload encoded as JSON-RPC messages. That’s all. Client simply opens TCP socket and writes requests to the server in the form of JSON messages finished by the newline character \n.

What is Stratum in crypto mining?

Stratum V2 is a standardized protocol for pooled mining. It reduces the size and frequency of data transfers and prevents hashrate hijacking by encrypting communication channels between pools and proxies/miners.

What is Stratum Bitcoin mining?

Stratum, the de-facto mining communication protocol used by blockchain based cryptocurrency systems, enables miners to reliably and efficiently fetch jobs from mining pool servers.

What is the difference between stratum 1 and stratum 2?

Stratum 1 refers to any machine that synchronizes its system clock directly with the ‘reference’ clock that resides at Stratum 0. For example, a server that has a GPS unit plugged into one of its serial ports. Stratum 2 refers to any machine that synchronizes its system clock with the clock on a Stratum 1 server.
