Victorium (VIC) Coin Mining Pool Setup Guide

Victorium (VIC) Coin Mining Pool Setup Guide

This a step by step guide on how to setup your own Victorium (VIC) Mining Pool. This guide is going over how to setup an Open open-Victorium-coin-pool . This is meant to setup a mining pool for a SINGLE CRYPTO CURRENCY. This is not a guide for a Multipool!!!!

If you want to see what it looks like before you set it all up, head to the http://vic.miningpond.com

For this guide purpose we I will be using Victorium (VIC) Crypto Currency .




At this point you should have your VPS started, putty up and running and your logged in as root.


sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get dist-upgrade

sudo reboot

Install make and build tools

sudo apt-get install build-essential make

GoLangInstall GoLang

wget https://storage.googleapis.com/golang/go1.9.2.linux-amd64.tar.gz

sudo tar -xvf go1.9.2.linux-amd64.tar.gz

sudo mv go /usr/local

export GOROOT=/usr/local/go

export PATH=$GOPATH/bin:$GOROOT/bin:$PATH

export GOPATH=$HOME/go

Type: go version

You should have a response with the version.

Installing Redis latest version


wget http://download.redis.io/redis-stable.tar.gz
tar xvzf redis-stable.tar.gz
cd redis-stable
sudo cp src/redis-server /usr/local/bin/

sudo cp src/redis-cli /usr/local/bin/

sudo mkdir /etc/redis

sudo mkdir /var/redis

sudo cp utils/redis_init_script /etc/init.d/redis_6379

sudo cp redis.conf /etc/redis/6379.conf

sudo nano /etc/redis/6379.conf

  • Edit the configuration file, making sure to perform the following changes:
  • Set daemonize to yes (by default it is set to no).
  • Set the dir to /var/redis/6379 (very important step!)

sudo mkdir /var/redis/6379

sudo update-rc.d redis_6379 defaults

sudo /etc/init.d/redis_6379 start

Test Redis Install


Expected response

redis> ping



Install nginx


sudo apt-get install nginx

NGINX starts automatically on port 80. This is all that needs to be competed at this step.

NPM and NODE Install

Install using this guide provided ..


ln -s `which nodejs` /usr/bin/node

User Setup


You never run things like your coin daemon (wallet), or pool as root!

Let’s create a user for your mining pool.

Login to ssh using putty as root.

adduser usernameyouwant

You’ll be prompted for a password, please use a password that is different from your root password.
The other info it asks for you can either fill out or just leave blank and hit enter.

Now let’s give that new user sudo access.

adduser usernameyousetup sudo


Victorium Coin Demon install


Login to server as user we have crated above this step

cd ~

export GOROOT=/usr/local/go

export PATH=$GOPATH/bin:$GOROOT/bin:$PATH

export GOPATH=$HOME/go

go get -v github.com/VictoriumProject/go-victorium/...

go install github.com/VictoriumProject/go-victorium/cmd/...

Run Victorium For first Time


cd build/bin/

./geth – rpc console

-add account for miner pool


You will see like this ” 0xf0d066c928aeb570847900a1a39fde27a98d83ce

Save this adders in you pc somewhere as we need to use this in later stage of configuration


To Exit: Control B release buttons and then press D

Victorium Coin Pool Build


cd ..

git clone https://github.com/sammy007/open-ethereum-pool.git

cd open-ethereum-pool


export GOROOT=/usr/local/go

export PATH=$GOPATH/bin:$GOROOT/bin:$PATH

export GOPATH=$HOME/go


** Edit open-ethereum-pool >>payouts >>unlocker.go and change [ var homesteadReward = math.MustParseBig256(“6250000000000000000”) ] wiht your coin block reward

** Edit pool configs before ./build

cp ~/open-ethereum-pool/config.example.json ~/open-ethereum-pool/build/bin/config.json

edit config.json

** edit www/config/environment.js

Change ApiUrl: ‘//example.net/’ to ApiUrl: ‘//youtdomain.com:8080/


Configuration is actually simple, just read it twice and think twice before changing defaults.

Don’t copy config directly from this manual. Use the example config from the package, otherwise you will get errors on start because of JSON comments.

Build configuration

cd www

sudo npm install -g ember-cli@2.9.1

sudo npm install -g bower

sudo npm install

bower install


NGINX Config

-Change NGINX default config

sudo nano /etc/nginx/sites-available/default

The final config for NGINX should be formatted like this:

upstream api
server victorium.drowningpool.net:8080;


server {
listen 80 default_server;
listen [::]:80 default_server;
root /home/username/open-ethereum-pool/www/dist; # <- This should be the absolute path to the files
index index.html index.htm index.nginx-debian.html;

server_name _;

location / {
# First attempt to serve request as file, then
# as directory, then fall back to displaying a 404.
try_files $uri $uri/ =404;

location /api
proxy_pass http://api;

Restart NGINX

sudo service nginx reload

Firewall ports to open

Stratum: 8008

Web 80

Proxy is 8888 and can be opened for http getwork clients.

Make password file for wallet unlock in rpc


Login to server using


Now go to Victoriumcoin folder

Right click >> create new file >> add the password you use when you creating account in music coin demon >> save it

Start Victorium Coin demon



If comand not working use

sudo apt-get install screen

cd Victorium/build/bin/

./geth –rpc –cache=128 –extradata “your-domain-name” –identity “your-domain-name” –maxpeers 500 –rpcapi “eth,net,web3,admin” –rpcport “8585” –rpcaddr “” –etherbase “your-wallet-address- created above step ” –unlock “your-wallet-address- created above step” –password “location to password file” –rpccorsdomain “localhost” –mine –minerthreads 0

IT will take some hours to sync with blockchain so just close this putty session and will will run for ever in the screen

Start Pool


cd ~/open-ethereum-pool/build/bin

./open-ethereum-pool config.json

Some important command to interact with your pool wallet


— Send fund from pool wallet to another wallet ——-

eth.sendTransaction({from: ‘0xf0d066c928aeb570847900a1a39fde27a98d83ce’, to: ‘0x325e8a67db242341a2b65bf0524566c34d3c26f7’, value: web3.toWei(851.5, “ether”)})

— unlock your wallet —-

personal.unlockAccount(primary, “password”);

— Check balance —

web3.fromWei(eth.getBalance(eth.coinbase), “ether”)



  • Unlocking and payouts are sequential, 1st tx go, 2nd waiting for 1st to confirm and so on. You can disable that in code. Carefully read docs/PAYOUTS.md.
  • Also, keep in mind that unlocking and payouts will halt in case of backend or node RPC errors. In that case check everything and restart.
  • You must restart module if you see errors with the word suspended.
  • Don’t run payouts and unlocker modules as part of mining node. Create separate configs for both, launch independently and make sure you have a single instance of each module running.
  • If poolFeeAddress is not specified all pool profit will remain on coinbase address. If it specified, make sure to periodically send some dust back required for payments.
