While setting up a private nomp mining pool as a learning project, The instructions recommended setting up block notify. What are block notifications?

1 Answer 1


The -blocknotify="{cmd}" is one of the configurable settings when starting the bitcoin daemon. For example, I can start my bitcoind with this command:

bitcoind -blocknotify='echo %s'

And when a new block is solved, the block hash gets printed.
