Open Source : Mining Portal MPOS


MPOS is a web based Mining Portal for various crypto currencies. It was created by TheSerapher and has hence grown quite large. Recently it was migrated into a Github Organization to make development easier. It's a community driven open source project

Pools running MPOS

You can find a list of active pools here.


This setup has been tested on Ubuntu 12.04, Ubuntu 13.04 and CentOS. It should also work on any related distribution (RHEL, Debian).

Be aware that MPOS is only for pooled mining. Solo Mining is not supported. They will never match an upstream share, solo miners do not create any shares, only blocks. Expect weird behavior if trying to mix them. See #299 for full information.

Please take a look at the Quick Start Guide. This will give you an idea how to setup MPOS.


This project was meant to allow users to easily customize the system and templates. Hence no upstream framework was used to keep it as simple as possible. If you are just using the system, there will be no need to adjust anything. Things will work out of the box! But if you plan on creating your own theme, things are pretty easy:

  • Create a new theme folder in public/templates/
  • Create a new site_assets folder in public/site_assets
  • Create your own complete custom template or copy from an existing one
  • Change your theme in the Admin Panel and point it to the newly created folder

The good thing with this approach: You can keep the backend code updated! Since your new theme will never conflict with existing themes, a simple git pull will keep your installation updated. You decide which new feature you'd like to integrate on your own theme. Bugfixes to the code will work out of the box!

Other customizations are also possible but will require merging changes together. Usually users would not need to change the backend code unless they wish to work on non-existing features in MPOS. For the vast majority, adjusting themes should be enough to highlight your pool from others.

In all that, I humbly ask to keep the MPOS author reference and Github URL intact.
