Eligius, also sometimes referred to as Éloi or "Luke-Jr's pool", is a mining pool. As of October 23, 2012, Eligius is maintained by wizkid057. [1]

To use it, a miner merely needs to be directed to stratum.mining.eligius.st on port 3334, with the username set to a valid bitcoin address (which receives the payout). No registration is needed.

Donation address: 1E1igiusfEjs1pCaGjEERExE9gYcrFwow7 / Mx5FUQn8oBCoRdyBTUFu9JW5SsdEku56PP

Basic concepts:

  • The pool charges no fees and shares are managed under the CPPSRB reward system at 100% value at the time of mining. [2]
  • When a block is found, all miners who have reached the minimum payout threshold (currently about 0.04 BTC and is configurable) are paid via the Generation transaction.
  • The pool almost never has miner's funds, as they are paid directly to the miners from the block reward.
  • If a block is orphaned, its shares become part of the next block's reward distribution.
  • No registration. Just send username with the address you want payouts to (password can be anything).
  • A signed message based control panel was added for securely setting options for miners, including namecoin merged mining and donation amounts.

Eligius was announced on April 27, 2011[3]. At the time the service was operated without a name, paying out even tiny coins immediately.
