Function of mining.set_difficulty:

This method call is only sent from an pool to a miners and expect no response. The single argument is the new minimal difficulty, shares must have to get accepted by the pool. Miners should start using the new difficulty, with the start of the next job, so most pools send the method mining.notify with the argument Clean Jobs Als true immediately afterward to force a new job start. The initial difficulty become send in the response of mining.subscript, but some pools answer just with a dummy difficulty value and overwrites this direct by a call of mijnbouw. set_difficulty. Pools may adjust the difficulty according to the hashing power of their clients the difficulty individuality, to reduce network traffic and computing time.


Don’t be confused by the difficulty, need to be a new block for the blockchain of the currency, often called the network difficulty. That’s send in the argument bits of the method mining.notify.

private final OutputStream out;
public StratumSender(final OutputStream out) {
if(out == null) {
throw new IllegalArgumentException("out == null");
this.out = out;
public void setDifficulty(final int newDiff) {
if(newDiff < 1) {
throw new IllegalArgumentException("Possible lowest difficulty is 1.");
final String f = String.format(STRATUM_REQUEST_BASE, null,
"mining.set_difficulty", newDiff);
final byte[] bs = f.getBytes(DEFAULT_CHARSET);
try {
} catch (final IOException e) {
throw new RuntimeException(e);
