[BOUNTY] ZEC Proxy development

Hey! Author of https://github.com/glambeth/zecProxy here. It was a quick hack, and i’m backpacking right now, but i’ll be back in 2 weeks and work on improving it :slight_smile:



See you soon than


  1. It will function as expected.
  2. It will be useful for increasing and maintaining the hash rate on the testnet.
  1. It will provide Zcash miners and pool operators with a more diverse solution for mining (+ I also require some options for building a Zcash .onion mining pool). :sunglasses:

Hi guys
We had exactly the same needs, and without any opensource solution on the web, we decided to make it ourself. So we start working on a zec proxy this week and we made a nice alpha version (made from scratch, nodeJS, working with EWBF, tested on flypool with several rigs ).

We have now to fix some stuff and add some robustness hacks to allow “production usage” but we’re pretty close to a sherable version. I think we’ll be able to share an initial version next week.

We are also thinking about/adding some other cool features like pool failover system, cool Ascii UI, watchdog system (alerts/miners auto reboot on stuck GPUs), hashrate monitoring, pm2 support, etc… Lot of cool stuff to do :wink:

The project will be released on GitHub in Open Source & will be dev-fee free; however donations will be highly appreciated :wink:
Keep in touch

Tnx , now i testing. :slight_smile:

@PistoleDev, Please let me know if your proxy work also for ssl connections. Flypool,for example, can use ssl over your proxy?

Hi Love I found some bugs I’m using nanopool, if the proxy crash - port disconnected by pool it crash totally. I’m using PM2 to automatically restart proxy. The problem is if the proxy restart it is rejecting shares as invalid solution. I need to restart proxy 2x times until it start working properly. SSL connection doesn’t work certificate cannot be authorised. I tried use
openssl reg -subj "/C=IT/ST=pool /CN=mining.proxy -newkey rsa:2048 -nodes -keyout cert.key -x509 -out cert.pen -days 36500

But SSL doesn’t work with nanopool. I’m not using Flypool because flypool looks like sciming shares…

Thanks for help

Hi Linda
Yes nanopool ssl certificate is rejected so… no ssl for nanopool yet.
We’ll take a look to your bug, just a stupid question before : did you update to version 1.0.4 ?
Because “port disconnected by pool it crash totally” was fixed in previous version…

Hi PistoleDev,
I’m using 1.0.4 yes it fixed in 1.0.4 it restart the proxy the problem after restart it just show rejected shares : Invalid Solution
I must kill the process and start it manually and it start working again.
Is there any possibility to edit file
If pool.conection closed by pool then exit with error message. PM2 will restart it automatically

Hi PistoleDev,
Try it using PM2 using eu1 nanopool. Access the port 8000 with Webbrowser it will crash the proxy. (Same situation like port closed by the pool) Proxy will restart and start rejecting shares - invalid solution.

Regards your fan, tester :slight_smile:

Hi Linda
Perfect repro-case, thank you; I’ll fix it asap.
Best regards :raised_hand_with_fingers_splayed:
