Unfortunately I am no longer able to afford maintaining this mining pool and am forced to shut it down. The timeline for the shutdown will be as follows: The stratum server will remain online until 0000 EST on 1 March 2019, or until there are no active miners, whichever comes sooner. The portal will remain online until 0000 EDT 1 April 2019, or until all account balances have been withdrawn, whichever comes sooner. Any accounts with unclaimed VRM at the time of portal shutdown will be manually sent to the address on file for that account, so please make sure your VRM receiving address is up to date.

Welcome to Pool Sloth! Pool fees start at 1% for new users but are subject to adjustment in the future.

Please report any issues to the pool operator by email to rafael@ortiz.sh (new domain) or rafael@ortizmail.cc (old domain). Email is the fastest way to reach me.

PoolSloth is located in the AWS East Virginia data center.

Minimum withdrawal amount is 0.3 VRM for manual or automatic payouts. Since the transaction fee is 0.2 VRM I don't recommend setting it that low, but the option is there if you want it.

You will be notified of unscheduled downtime via email.
