A merge mining pool that allows mining bitcoins (BTC), Namecoin (NMC), ixcoin (IXC) and Devcoin (DVC). The pool originally started out as a PPS pool around January 28th 2012 but switched to the Double Geometric Method on May 1st, 2013 [1] for bitcoin rewards. The merge mined coins kept the PPS payment method.

Reward distribution

  • 1.5% fee with Double geometric method [2] for bitcoin rewards.
  • 2.5% fee with PPS method for merged mining rewards of Namecoin, Devcoin and ixcoin.
  • Pays for orphan blocks
  • Payout available as soon as a block is found for bitcoin and immediately a share is submitted for the merge mined coins. No waiting for 120 confirmations.

Extra Features

  • Stratum support with merge mining
  • IRC channel #mmpool on the freenode network


The Bitparking range of pools and exchanges originated when the operator started one of the first public bitcoin mining pools in October 2010 [3]. After that pool was closed Bitparking opened as a BTC/NMC exchange on June 03, 2011[4] and followed with a Namecoin mining pool. Over the Bitparking's history it has operated exchanges and pools for ixcoin, i0coin, ppcoin, and others but they have since closed.
