P2Pool Statistics

Welcome to the most transparent mining pool on the planet. With centralized mining pools the only data available is what they allow you to see. P2Pool, because it is distributed and open source, provides literally all pool data for public review.

Start Mining

P2Pool is not your typical mining pool, with it you can have as much or as little control over your pool node as you would like. Mine on a nearby public node, run a private node for only your mining equipment, or launch a massive global network of public p2pool nodes and charge a fee, whatever suits you. Click below now for public node lists and instructions on how to launch your own P2Pool node.
