solo.ckpool.org is a solo mining pool implementation without the need to setup a local bitcoind.
solo.ckpool was started on the 31. August 2014 . For developers there is also a testnet implementation available.
Pool code created and operated by Con Kolivas, creator of cgminer and ckpool.

If you have an asicminer tube/prisma, you can use a custom port 3335 (only accepts usernames without worker extensions) eg:
Set your username to your btcaddress with any or even no worker extension, and any password.
Note this is mining worthless testnet coins only! Also, you must be using a testnet bitcoin address on this edition.
- If you find a block, 99% of the 12.5 BTC + transaction fees get generated directly at your bitcoin address.
- 1% goes to the operator to operate the pool and contribute to further ckpool code development.
- If you find a block, 100% of the testnet coins + transaction fees get generated directly at your bitcoin address.
- No overheads of running a full bitcoin node
- Connected to high speed low latency bitcoin nodes for rapid block change notification and propagation.
- No transaction-free blocks due to the ultra-scaleable code which has miners on both new blocks and transactions concurrently.
- No registration required, no payment schemes, no pool operator wallets
- The miner remains anonymous apart from his BTC address.
