We’re excited to reveal our biggest product launch to date: a Bitcoin Mining Pool.
Luxor Tech is North America’s largest mining pool operator, supporting 15 different coins and over 8,500 miners. We are experienced in delivering high quality pools, with strong uptime and customer service and are thrilled to bring this knowledge to the Bitcoin Mining Industry!
A Brief Timeline
Luxor was founded in late 2017 by a team of devs committed to creating high-quality mining products to support the industry.
The company was created because we truly believe that crypto will fundamentally change value creation & transfer in our future society (for the better). From the beginning, we have all thought of classical Nakamoto consensus (Proof-of-Work) as the only proven and tested mechanism for securing a decentralized platform. We revisit this debate as a team monthly, and our conviction in the consensus mechanism is still as strong today as it was back in 2017. This means the future of decentralized finance will require responsible guardians to efficiently harness energy to maintain the security of networks. We strive to be one of those responsible guardians.
We started 2018 with a small team and two mining pools. Over time, we received great feedback from our community. We understood that miners valued high-grade mining pools with strong customer support and a mission to improve the ecosystem in which they operated.
By October 2019, we have built a total of 15 public mining pools and a suite of enterprise-level mining products. We are proud of what our team members have been able to build with the support and feedback of our community.
We are excited to introduce our first PPS+ pool. For further information on PPS+ please check out this article we wrote.
Our Bitcoin pool is AsicBoost compatible, allowing miners to improve the efficiency of their operations.
We are starting by offering Nodes in the US, China, Asia (Singapore) and Europe.
In the horizen, Luxor plans to implement Stratum V2 which among other things gives individual miners the ability to control which Bitcoin transactions to include in their newly mined blocks. As a result, the Bitcoin network becomes more decentralized and censorship resistant as operators of large pools no longer centrally determine which transactions to include into blocks.
