CryptoNight stratum

Postby nicehash » Sat Mar 14, 2015 8:36 pm


CryptoNight is using a modified stratum protocol ... First of all I would like to know why has this happen in the first place and second, is there is any documentation about this modified stratum protocol, maybe some whitepaper or some other kind of technical documentation?

Hello, @nicehash. Stratum is the protocol for client-server (miner-pool) communications. As CryptoNight PoW algorithm is very different from Bitcoin's one, Stratum protocol had to be modified to work properly with CryptoNote coins.
Stratum was updated by pool operators without the help of our team, so you better ask them for whitepaper or another kind of technical documentation.
