You've gotta start somewhere right ? :)

I've now added a JSON API, and forum signature for each user, available in the user account area.

It could possibly look a little bit nicer no ? :P

Slowly getting more power signed up.

Many people have asked what kind of system we are running, is it a VPS etc?

It's not a VPS, it's running on dedicated server running just the pool.

Also people have asked about instant payouts - this feature is currently being added.

Come chat to use in #mineco on freenetnode !

Awesome pool - just started mining here and didn't have a single stale share yet with 250 total submitted. I never got below at least 2% rejected shares on any other pool I tried.

Did you give the server steroids or whats going on Wuked? Very nice :D!

Post by: Wuked on June 17, 2011, 12:25:00 AM
From my tests I'm getting less than 0.01% stale rate on the shares.

I was getting about 2% on other pools I tested.

I would guess this is down to different versions of software, and hardware, and possibly the server load.

Just to let everyone know, we will be offering a 5 BTC bonus to whomever finds our first block.

This money won't be from the pool reward, but from my own stash.

The outcome of each hash is independent of any hashes that are before it. in other words, after hashing for one year (and not getting anything), the chances of you getting a block is still the same.

Well, I've been in since sometime between 8 and 10 am CST this morning , just couldn't  post on here until now. Mu user on the pool is IWant Coins.


Between two miners I have 2665 shares accepted and only 14 stale, about .5%  Cool!!

I think I'm going to be sticking with this pool for awhile. My estimated reward keeps rising nicely too, up to about .4 btc for a little over 12 hours of mining at 270-280 Mhash/s

Good luck on the first block everyone ;)

i think the finder should take the blocks' fees ;)

i have noticed some random disconnections like "miner is idle".
where is the server's location?

Adding ~1.8GH to this today as Eligius isn't working properly. Hopefully get that 5BTC. ;)

I also like the idea that the finder gets that block's fees as a reward.

We are discussing a method for combatting this.

We are currently monitoring all users hashrates over a certain period. It's possible we could use this as an indication of how much to pay each user.

what is wrong with this formula?
BlockReward (50BTC+fees)) * (Shares found by you / total shares for this round)
i find it most fair!

p.s. the miners' downtime is most annoying :(

Consider a score based system so later shares are worth more than earlier?

That's what Slush uses and it's pretty perfect for 24/7 miners.

Post by: luffy on June 18, 2011, 04:47:07 PM
i really dislike this "score" method!
a share is a share no matter when it was submitted. it is a proof of work and as this should be valued
the same as every share out there!


Title: Re: [5BTC BONUS!] MineCo.in - LP,EU Server,SSL,JSON API,0% TAX
Post by: Reikoku on June 18, 2011, 04:55:54 PM
luffy, with that system, you can avoid long blocks and only mine the whole block on short ones, this makes it more profitable for you (and less for everyone else).


Title: Re: [5BTC BONUS!] MineCo.in - LP,EU Server,SSL,JSON API,0% TAX
Post by: HeroMiner on June 18, 2011, 05:06:43 PM
Exactly, the "score" method is the way of the future and its the most fair one. Especially now that Multipool offers an easy way to exploit the regular proportional pools.

Have added my 1GH to your server  ;D

Suggestions for the web ui:

Hashrate display for workers. Average of the last 10 minutes maybe?
Stale share display for workers.
Option to reset worker data

Thats all i can think of for now.. great work with the pool :)

Edit: Website now seems to be down? Miners are still going.

Sorry guys I was just changing a few things on the web front end - your estimated reward should show again in a second.

Nice Suggestions Faraday, I have those stats - but I'm just trying to optimise some scripts because it takes a long time to build them.

Throwing you 2.5ghashes under the guise of saucy.

Can you add support to change worker passwords and a way to view all worker stats easily from a mobile device? I always like to check on my miners from my phone.

Wasn't me either, but 0.47 BTC for a little over one day of mining with 250 Mhash/s isn't too shabby. I only had .7% stale shares too  :), I'm already up to 9.5% in the namecoin pool with one miner at 75 Mhash/s :( Findina a second block soon would be cool! my estimated reward right now is 14BTC and slowly falling. I think I'm going to go buy a second 5770 that I found on Craigslist for $80 ans nearly double my hashrate ;D

I would then either have a long "tail" of payouts (if you average hash rate on long timers) this making everyone pay for past miners for some time or (if it's shorter than it takes the pool on the current difficulty) still enable hopping.

A working + proven scoring method has been published. Use it!

LOL, I am still very new to this, to be sure.
The outcome of each hash is independent of any hashes that are before it. in other words, after hashing for one year (and not getting anything), the chances of you getting a block is still the same.

Ummm, it's a fine point but double check what you are saying.. If the clock always starts at each block then yes the chance for everyone is equally proportional to the hashing power they have. If the clock starts 1 year ago the "chance" is significantly higher at that point.

What's your incentive for running the pool? You don't charge any fees, and you don't seem to get any rewards from it. Or do you plan to introduce fees or perks later?


Title: Re: [35GH/sec] MineCo.in - LP,EU Server,SSL,JSON API,0% TAX
Post by: Wuked on June 21, 2011, 10:21:26 PM
I discovered bitcoin, and I wanted to make some software for it - so I made the pool :) I was mining on someone else's pool, and it was fine - but I wanted the challenge of making my own.

I'm not charging any taxes on it because I'm using reclaimed hardware and it's hosted with the company I work for.

I've told the members in our chatroom, that if we do need to expand on hardware in the future then I will introduce a tax to cover the cost of that, and if I ever get into the position where it's taking up a large amount of my time then the same may apply.

Come join is in #mineco if you want to know more!

Because you still have the same % of the block that hasn't been found yet? Unfortunately this is a block that is over the difficulty rating, and so we are "unlucky" this round.

Hi all,

I've added Mineco.in to btc-poolwatch. If you guys mines on multiple pools, this will provide a 1 page view of all your miner's status.

Please try it out. http://www.btc-poolwatch.com

Tom, Thanks for the heads up on your pool.

Regards,
Koo

BTW Wuked, wanted to thank you for putting this pool together.  I like the idea of smaller pools rather than the gargantuan ones currently around... I hope more people follow :)  Ill be sticking around.

Finnaly...

Btw... what the hell.
I changed my payout to 0.3.
Yesterday it changed to it.
And now its 1.0 again.

I change it to 0.3 fill in my password to confirm, hit submit and then it says i updated my account succesfully.
I logout, login and I switch to Edit details.
And then again its still set to 1.0

Yes, something is wrong.


EDIT:

Now again its set to: 0.10000000 without me filling this in.
I have a 0.3 reward in my mineco account but nothing is happening?
While you said that if you recceive a reward it will automaticly payout based on the amount you have set in your mineco account.
Its set to 0.1 now.. but why nothing is happening?
I just feel something is wrong.


So yeah...
How can i get my bitcoins to my wallet?

what is wrong with this formula?
BlockReward (50BTC+fees)) * (Shares found by you / total shares for this round)

Its syntax and "+" is wrong. But that's it.  :P

It should be: [added spaces for readability]

(50 BTC - fees) * (Your Shares / Total Shares Per Round)

I did some low hashrate testing of Mineco.in comparing it against Deepbit (with all things being equal except the pool).
These are the results in the order in which I tried running against both pools:

Deepbit: [50 Accepted] [0 Rejected]
Mineco.in: [27 Accepted] [13 Rejected]
Deepbit: [39 Accepted] [0 Rejected]
Mineco.in: [18 Accepted] [12 Rejected]
Deepbit: [13 Accepted] [0 Rejected]

Something is causing a very high number of rejects on Mineco.in.

Then however it maybe is related directly to the pool.

No one else is reporting the same problem as you are.

1) What's your location
2) What's your hash speed ?
3) What mining software are you using?

Hey Wuked, try and put a password recovery script on the site.  My browser knows it, but when I want to make a change, I need to type it in manually, and I have forgotten it.  I have changed a lot of passwords this past week and I didn't keep track of them all. Sigh.

Also, it would be cool if you could link your logo to the "dashboard" or "home" page.

Wuked,

I'm testing mineco.in since last night, I have two miners on it, looking at my miners I have submitted more or less 3600 shares, but my account statistics show a lot less of them

# Current rate: 49 GH/s
# Time: 0 days 08:34:05
# Total Shares: 339234
# Difficulty: 1379192
# Server Load: Low
# Your Shares 2362 (0.6963 %)
# Your Reward: 0.34835371 BTC

I'm subtracting stale shares, of course.

Is this page updated seldomly or what?

Regards.

spiccioli.

That count is your shares for this round only, not your total shares ever.

Since we found a block around 7 hours ago, your local count will contain shares from the old block as well as the new block, whereas the count on the site is only since 3:30am this morning!

(50 BTC - fees) * (Your Shares / Total Shares Per Round)
as I understand it, transaction fees are actually being distributed in this pool
when bitcoins will start being mined at 25, then 12.5, then 6.25 this will become even more important as they will be a larger percentage of the earnings of miners
and eventually, that's all that miners will be able to gain

No I haven't tried another miner with your pool. I am past the stage of selecting a miner, phoenix worked best on my hardware (both my test miner and mining rig).

You should be able to see what happened on your side, I was mining with the same userid as here.

Here's the output of a new test run on Mineco:

I just ran a much shorter test on another new pool (ArsBitcoin), with just 8 submitted shares, 3 where rejected.
It's strange that this doesn't happen on Deepbit but does on 2 new pools....

I thought "fees" were the site's fees (or cut of the block). That's how no percentage pools work(ed). 

Are the block fees (paid to the block finder/pool) always the same?

Dear Wuked, how to conclude a block an extent 3 days - from you appeals it was not heard, and on a new block you call new. Do you consider that conclude large blocks those, whoever a money need? A policy for you is not correct

I'm sorry but I have trouble understanding what you are asking ?

I think he (or she) is saying that when we had a block that took 3 days to crack you weren't telling people it was a good time to join in... but now you are almost inviting poolhoppers...

Ppl can see that we are on a new block anyway. Its just that some miners where switching pools because of that long block and we could need new blood to replace them - I believe that was Wukeds intend.

So come and join in if you're not a pool hopper - we have a great community on IRC going too :D.

I - the leader in the pool. From the beginning of the block - The current rate of 55 Gh / s at the end of 32 Gh / s. all run away to other pools. To be paid only to those who extracts the block at least 90%. It will be fine. rightly

Post by: Wuked on June 28, 2011, 11:38:21 PM
We are talking on IRC about implementing something to stop pool hopping - come talk to us if you want III.

At the end of the block, if you were the leader then you would have had the most shares, and the most reward. The people who left would have had less reward.

I was telling people now is a good time to join because lots of people said they prefer to join the pool when a new block is started so they don't lose out in the changeover. I'm not trying to promote pool hopping, just letting people know if they want to move, then now was a good time :)

Hope that makes sense, and hope you come back to the pool! :)

They're running on the same rig, so the clock is the same for both of them, using two different accounts; how is it possible that at 18:14:02, for example, one of them does not receive a new block? Miners on other pools all received a new block with a +-1 second accuracy.

The one that is not receiving new blocks is not hanged, as it can be seen from its clock. They're both phoenix 1.5

Hi,

if you're asking me, yesterday around 23:14 UTC+2 all my miners went idle but I did find they were sleeping only this morning :( and then I rebooted my rigs.

Right now they're working ok, I'll report back if it happens again.

For me, phoenix never worked reliably with network connections. Long Polling would die after a few hours every time (=> no more LP: work pushed). And sometimes it would fail to get new work from the pool, sitting idle until restart.

So maybe you should try poclbm+phatk and see if it works.

Or use DiabloMiner which has much better networking code.

Actually we have a user who has around 10GH of speed, but is having problems with his power and his internet connectivity. That has caused most of the spikes in the graph as 10GH is over 10% of the pool.

However lots of people are swapping over when a new block starts, and most are staying. Obviously there is some pool hopping going on, but very low scale.

Yes. You should try poclbm.

The last version (git clone https://github.com/m0mchil/poclbm.git) Includes very nice features
  • phatk kernel tunned to boost 3% https://github.com/m0mchil/poclbm/commit/c980dfd18531bde08668befa0546c4b437779a80
  • Now it's possibe to specify multiple pools via command line and poclbm will hop from them when one stop responding and will auto fail-back to the first one when it becomes available later

Wuked, will this pool continue to pay proportional or is this just temporary till some better (cheatproof, somehow scorebased) way is implemented? I just watched the stats and it looks like there are lots of pool hoppers (or at least a lot of hopping hashing power).
I really like this pool (ultra low rejected shares, pays fees, nice size, ...) but I have to use another one because I'm not gonna feed the hoppers.  :-[

I haven't had a stale on my favorite pool in over 36 hours (7,000+ shares).  Maybe there is something that Wuked can do, something he's overlooked?

Where can I send some coin to help with hosting costs, since there are no fees. I want to see this pool (and others like it) stay around for a while. Where can I send a coin or two to?

Also, in case it wasn't obvious above: Thank you for this pool! I moved here from eligius (which has been having server issues) and used to use DeepBit (which has fairly high fees),  and I couldn't be happier! THANK YOU FOR THIS POOL!

I think there was just a bug in the banner generator... I had a similar issue where it was reporting 0MH/s for me, but it is working correctly now.

It also seems that the banner is either the 30-min average, or for the average of the previous 10 minutes, so they won't always add up correctly.

The reward is proportional, and wih your total, that reward seems reasonable for one block, as it would imply that you have around 3% of the hashing power of the pool, which is ~4.5GH/sec continuous.

Yup, I'm also experiencing discrepancies with my actual shares generated and the shares being reflected in the pool.

I worked on the last block (the one found on July 10) for more than a day and throughout that period the stats were showing that I had an estimated reward from that block of around .35BTC.

But now the stats are telling me that I contributed 0 shares to the discovery of that block and so I don't get anything  ???

I've added the block numbers here so you can see :

https://mineco.in/blocks

Block 28 onwards is still waiting to be confirmed..

We had 3 slow blocks, which will have slowed down the pace of your rewards, and before then we have 4/5 very fast blocks so you would have had them quicker than normal.

All looks fine :)

This basically is proportional.. but proportional over a shorter length of time to reward people who don't drop out the block at the half way point.

what about the opposite i described here: http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=23774.msg298141#msg298141

Not everyone is on IRC - I was for the longest time but chose to step back from it.

Anyway, I remember I asked you about fair scoring the day I joined and pointed you to the original method for fair scoring, also know as the "score method". You replied, that it was "way too complex".

Other pools, however, are running with this algo, namely: Slush, BTCMine, Continuum and a few others - these are huge pools so it can't be impossible to implement it in a practical way.

If you guys talked about it though and you think the method you are using now is fine, thats OK - there are plenty of other pools around for me. If you should change it sometime, I will prob come back.

You do realize this method theoretically gives you what you're supposed to get for the 16/24 hours right?

The method isn't meant to "punish" pool-hoppers but rather not provide any benefit to do so.

It's not unfair, it just adds variance, but that can be reduced by choosing large N, so your shares would be counted proportionally to payments for all blocks found in next N shares.

No, I'm not realizing it. There are theoretical constellations where the payout would be fair but most times it won't.

I do realize, that the "original" method isn't completely fair to non 24/7 miners either, but its more so than PPLNS for sure.

I'm back with 800MH, in a few weeks 2GH.

Over an infinite time period, PPLNS is not unfair to part-time miners UNLESS they are deliberately hopping at or before the expected halfway point consistently.

Sure, sometimes you will do 4 hours mining at the start of a long block and be credited for nothing, but sometimes you will do 4 hours mining at the end of a block and be credited as if you had been mining the whole block.

I'm not a genius @ math, but my instinct tells me, that when I shut my sys down over night, I will typically, or often, lose all the shares that were generated for the last round, whereas with Menis algo, I won't be losing any shares, but the ones for that round will be worth less when a block is found, becuz thats how it works.

So why should non 24/7 miners stay at this pool? Plz let me know :D.

No that's not correct. If you join at the end, you'll get your percent of 750000 shares depending on pool hash rate. If it takes the pool 4 hours to hash 750000 shares, and you join at the last 4 hours, then you will be credited as if you were mining the whole block. If the pool takes 8 hours to generate 750000 shares, then you get half of what you'd normally get for a while block - but this is same as proportional so that is okay. But if you left early, you'd lose there too.

I don't think this is really going to stop pool hoppers...instead of hopping in at the beginning, now just hop in NOT at the beginning - such as at 75% of difficulty and staying to 125%.

The outcome of each hash is independent of any hashes that are before it. in other words, after hashing for one year (and not getting anything), the chances of you getting a block is still the same.

And the probablity you don't find any block after a decade of transmitting 1 hash with a probability of 0.001 each every day is still only 2% or sum such...

All that means is that you'd lose the opportunity to get the gains from shorter blocks.

Post by: HeroMiner on July 12, 2011, 03:27:26 PM
I rethought the PPLNS system last night and think I overlooked an important aspect.

Say the pool is in the middle of a block of usual "length". When you leave at this point, you will get not credit at all for that block. But if you join the next day, the pool is in the middle of such a block again, you will get full credit for that one, even though you haven't mined since the beginning of that round.

Thats exactly what Reikoku said a few posts back, I must have overlooked that too, sry :-[.

So this method shouldn't be disadvantageous for non 24/7 miners after all.


Title: Re: [150 GH/sec] MineCo.in - PPLNS 0% Mining

as i said: as this pool does not have that much hashing power (it's a shame... i really like this pool) it will took very long to even out.

it could be that i am lucky... but who knows?

You're right on that. You can jump in whenever and be either within 750000 shares of solving the block or not getting any credit at all. With PPLNS, when you join the hashing, when averaged out, has no impact on how much you get. So rather than basing on how many shares the pool has had since the last book, you could hop basing on the pool's current statistical luck.

PPLNS is simple to understand and it appears that it can't be gamed like the old system. Especially it makes joining at the beginning of a round useless - something that was costing us permanent miners. It also seems to me that this system doesn't demotivate people from joining during a drought. I also really like the principle that two or more blocks found quickly are rewarded not just over the round shares but over all the last N shares. So while some shares get you nothing others get you double or triple - for the permanent miner this balances out.

Even if you don't mine 24/7, what you loose at one end you gain at the other end. If you mine little you're gambling as your shares may be worthless or be worth double or triple.

I'll be staying with Mineco.in.

Just make sure not to cycle out getworks too soon!

Take a look at this scenario:
Current difficulty: 100, next difficulty: 400 (maximum increase = 4 fold)
Last block of difficulty 100 and the first block of difficulty 400 found immediately after each other.
This means if you just rotate all getworks after 1/2 difficulty out, you'd miss 3/4 of getworks for the next round.

You have to have at least (current_difficulty * 2) difficulty1 shares as a reserve to make sure you can always calculate payouts.


I just wonder if "negative hopping" could work - waiting until you are on a long round (e.g. current share count = current difficulty *1.2) and then going in. If a LOT of people follow this strategy, the added hash rate would even make it a self fulfilling prophecy (as it gets more likely that a block is found). Have you done some calculations/simulations based on this?

Editing the name should be possible, but deleting them is a bit of a grey area, as they are linked to blocks and shares by their id :)

Yea good point.. alternatively you could allow someone to "delete" the worker through the web interface, but just set a flag in the database so it's hidden from the users view.

But, being able to edit them should work out alright just fine.

The 145Ghash is an estimate of the current pool speed over the last 30 minutes, As you can see from the graph the speed fluctuates somewhat.

Reward isn't calculated from the estimated speeds, but in fact from valid shares

Your reward is calculated like this :

Total Shares = Valid Shares in last (Difficulty / 2) Shares
Your Shares  = Your Valid Shares in last (Difficulty / 2) Shares

Your reward = your % of your shares in total shares.

You cannot make a simple calculation like 145Ghash / 6.621Ghash to get your exact reward. The projected reward is the most accurate.

Hope that clears things up a bit.

Unless the pool is at a constant 145 GH, you can't use such a simple algorithm to calculate what you expect.

I think you should stop cheating and really show% commission, which you take each and decide he should take part in your pool or not. I look forward to one day return to 5% for 3 days. The trust is lost. This occurs in 3 days.

If I was taking 6% of everyones rewards, that would be 3 BTC per block.. you don't think people would notice ?

When we moved over to PPLNS system I went through the calculations in detail with our pools biggest contributor, and we confirmed that the values were correct for his % of the pool ownership. They certainly were not 6% off.

Again, you are basing your calculations on totally incorrect values. You are using snapshot values, and estimates - so it's not surprising your calculations are around 5% off ?

As I've said - the most accurate value is the "Your Reward:" section in the left.

The last Block for example was calculated over the last 764101 Shares.

So your reward for a 50BTC block would be :

(YourShares / 764101) * 50 BTC

So if you had 33811 shares then..

(33811 / 764101) * 50 = 2.21246929 BTC

Could you clearify this?

Maybe it's just cosmetic. It looks from my point of view that I have 11825 shares but only 6359 are counted toward the next block found?

I know the need to stop pool hoppers exists. But it really bites guys like me who mine all night 8-10 hours just to end up loosing all my shares durring the day when I don't mine (using pc durring the day). Would it save my shares if I logged in with only one of my cpu cores mining? or maybe just one of my 5970 cores mining durring the day?

Everyone is losing shares, not just you. So your % of the reward is still the same...

Your eligible shares are how many shares you have in the last 1/2 difficulty so your "Estimated Reward" shouldn't be changing all that much..

This is an increase of 8.18% over the previous difficulty of 1563027.996116 (set in block number 135072, which took 12.9 days to solve all 2016 blocks).

Please forgive my noobness, but I just signed up with the pool and am having trouble connecting. I'm running Phoenix via LinuxCoin, and it says "Failed to connect, retrying..." I assume it has something to do with using port 3000 because I've been able to connect to other pools via ports 8332 and 8337, but I could be totally wrong on that.

Anyone have any ideas about what I'm doing wrong? The command I'm entering is (with personal info redacted):

Issues/requests:

- The timestamp in the api call (and I think on your site) is not UTC but British time. Currently you are giving us UTC+1. For instance currently I have "last_share_at":"2011-07-28T19:00:14Z" but it's 18:00 GMT.

- I am looking forward to the promised idle miner notification.

- You really need an easy way to donate part of the reward to the pool. Maybe allow us to set a fixed percentage, or a little box on the site from which we can directly donate from our confirmed amount, without having to go through our wallet.

Keep up the good work and enjoy your vacation...

The formula

N = 1/2 Difficulty

Your Reward = ((YourShares in last N shares) / (last N shares)) * BlockValue

I somewhat eluded to this in a separate thread message (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=28652.msg421547#msg421547), but I'm curious as to why my estimated rewards keep decreasing per round.  My miners are on 24/7 and once every two days may disconnect for up to 5 minutes due to network problems or maintenance.  However, I've noticed that my eligible share-count is decreasing, even though I constantly produce more shares in the round than the eligible count.

What is the relation between eligible and actual shares produced by a miner, and what factors affect the eligible share count?

This round is at 8,697,535 shares, well within the realm of possibility.  My pool had two 11 million share rounds lately  :-\

If the pool wasn't "connected" to the bitcoin network, it couldn't generate work to hand out to miners.  So I'm sure things are working normally.

The pool uses Pay-Per-Last-N-Shares, where your reward if a block is found is computed by how many recent shares you contributed in the period it took the whole pool to contribute (difficulty/2) shares. If the total pool hashrate decreases, you are able to submit a higher percentage of shares in the N shares window, and your reward is higher when a block is found. We of course prefer the more regular payouts that come with a higher hashrate, but your expected reward over time is the same whether the pool has a high or low total hashrate.

BTW, there is no penalty for jumping on in the middle of a long round on a PPLNS pool (and also no logical reason to leave on a long round either). The work you submit now determines your earnings on future block finds (the past luck does not matter), so mine away!

Is there a plan to include a way to donate a percentage of my gains to the pool automatically?
I like that there is no option on the site shaming users into donating a fixed percentage. The donations address from the pool's web site is 1D3ro6Xb9XDvPFCytiNLdSLDHpWXZoA2kn if you want to send something. BTW, this is the highest earnings pool around - a fair unhoppable payment system, no fees, and pays miners the transaction fees earned per block solve in addition to the 50BTC.

Is there a plan to include a way to donate a percentage of my gains to the pool automatically?
I like that there is no option on the site shaming users into donating a fixed percentage. The donations address from the pool's web site is 1D3ro6Xb9XDvPFCytiNLdSLDHpWXZoA2kn if you want to send something.

I understand.  Some pools have acted rather shamefully regarding their donation percentages.  Personally, I feel that a donation percentage box set to 0 by default accompanied by a polite sentence making the views of the pool owner on the subject clear would be ideal but if Wuked prefers it this way I'll try to calculate an appropriate donation and do so manually.

I noticed the included transaction fees and this is very much appreciated.  The PPLNS is a big winner for me too.  One thing that is bothering me about PPLNS is trust in the pool operator.  What is to stop a PPLNS pool operator from cashing in a winning block silently once in a while and keeping the reward for themselves.  I don't mean to cast doubt on the trustworthyness of Wuked at all; I'm sure no such scam is taking place.  Is there some kind of mechanism in place which makes it impossible for the pool operator to keep the odd block for themselves and if so how does it work?

Any pool system besides PPS requires trust in the pool operator, regardless of the payment system used. A pool admin could withhold a winning block payment, or be contributing fake shares into the system so they get paid for work they didn't do. There doesn't seem to be a good way to hold a pool op accountable if you can't know from the outside when a pool has solved a block or verify that all contributed shares are from real miners.

With PPS there are typically high fees, since the pool operator is paying for mining in advance of block solves, takes a risk that there may be a long period of bad luck where he still has to pay miners, and also a PPS pool can be attacked by withholding - bad miners not submitting a winning share if found.

Hi Guys,

I've just got back from my vacation, sorry for being AWOL for so long!

I have quite a bit of work to get done on the pool, so I'll get on all of your messages as soon as possible.

It looks like we've had shocking luck over the last week, but I can assure you that everything seems to be running smoothly on the pool.

I think bad luck follows me around.  Switched my miners over from guild 3 days ago, they've been green on luck most of the last 3 days.  Not so much here.  If someone wanted to drink their variance sorrows away and was wondering what the probability of hitting X (lets just say 9 million) shares given current D difficulty, how would that be done? I vaguely remember spreadsheets of poisson, and normal distributions from statistics, but I don't know how use them.

Slush's pool has a graph of what you're looking for: http://mining.bitcoin.cz/stats/graphs/ (http://mining.bitcoin.cz/stats/graphs/) - scroll to the bottom.

Slush's probability graph is full of math fail. Let me re-twat a previous post of mine (https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=10121.msg341739#msg341739") (note the probability below was from a lower difficulty):

The CDF is already at 99.999% probability of finding a block per Poisson distribution table since 4 hours ago.
It's now at 8 million shares and 16 hours @ 600ghash/s.

Mathematically very, very improbable, if not practically impossible
http://portal.acm.org/citation.cfm?doid=355993.355997
http://www.itl.nist.gov/div898/handbook/pmc/section3/pmc331.htm

(The probability of not solving a block within 960 minutes at current difficulty with 600ghash/s is <0.0000000000000001% and decreases exponentially after each passing minute)

I get a different answer. The chance of solving a block depends on difficulty.

Here is the probability of an individual hash solving a block: http://blockexplorer.com/q/probability

The current probability of solving a block with an individual hash is: 0.0000000000000001489590023459044440534704278888966655358

The current probability of not solving a block with one hash is therefore :
( 1 - 0.00000000000000014895900234590444 ) = 0.99999999999999985104099765409556

Let's call that chance of not solving with an individual hash (a number very close to 1, or 100%) "Z".

The probability of not solving a block with two hashes is Z * Z, better written as Z^2. Still nearly 100%. We need more hashes.

The pool averaged about 600Ghash per second. That is 600,000,000,000 hashes per second x 60 seconds per minute x 60 minutes per hour x 16 hours in the "imaginary" round. Probably around 34,560,000,000,000,000 hashes. That's another preposterous number, so I'll call that "hashTotal"

A pool trys hashTotal hashes in 16 hours, so the chance of not finding a block in that time is Z ^ hashTotal.

.99999... ^ 3.456E+16 = .02156 = 2.16% chance of not solving a block in 16 hours. Not improbable. Bruteforcing the nonce statistics don't enter into it, since everybody is doing random work on multiple blocks. Actual calculation done in Excel, not Matlab, so feel free to verify the percentage for me.


Note that also you cannot directly compute using shares or just multiply shares*difficulty, because the chance of finding a share (a difficulty 1 block solve) is also random with binomial distribution (http://mathworld.wolfram.com/BinomialDistribution.html), and what is important is the complete number of individual hash attempts in the full difficulty problem.

The current round is about to reach 10,000,000 shares.  At current difficulty, there is a roughly 1 in 254 chance of having a round that long (0.39274%)

It's normal, in fact that round was done an hour after your post, and then another block was found in ten hours.
The pool hashrate is lower than it was a few weeks ago, currently 84 Ghash/s. You get payouts less often, but they are worth more.

Let's calculate the expected round time:

Pool hashes per second: 84,000,000,000
Pool hashes per hour: 302,400,000,000,000
Bitcoin average hashes per block solve: 7,635,483,000,000,000 (at current difficulty)
= Average pool round: 25.25 hours


So blocks solves (and their payouts) average once a day at the current total hashrate. With variance, this means you might get some rounds 1/3 this length, and some 3x this length.

Here's a link to the statistics page (https://mineco.in/blocks) mentioned above.
You can compare the number of shares per round to the current difficulty, 1777774. It's been a while since a really long round.

(From the hashrate graph, it also looks like some dumb pool hoppers are still jumping on at the start of new rounds, although with the PPLNS payout method they don't earn more for their work than anyone else. You also don't need to quit mining just because a round is longer than expected; if you do, you will miss out on maximum earnings when a block is found.)

Although it doesn't count for much, I would be interested in this too.

mineco.in is my secondary pool (mainly backup but sometimes I split resources for low variance and I would move the bulk over for a sufficiently good promotion).  Recently my main pool (simplecoin.us PPLNS) had a reboot to upgrade the merged mining implementation to Luke Jr's and my miners consequently switched over to this pool for 2 hours or so.  I'm very much in the market for a second solid merged-mining PPLNS (or double-geo) pool.

I also used to highly recommend this pool (I converted some users, such as bitkoyn, from BTC Guild to mineco.in) but these days I can only recommend merged mining pools.

Anyway, just some thoughts from a fan.  The true userbase comes first of course. ;)

Yep, stats look messed up, I'm still mining fine, but the pool reports a flat 3ghash/s total pool hashrate instead of the 60 or so it should show.

Edit: FYI, it seems the stats problem was due to Euro daylight savings time messing up calculations.

Just a bump, the pool is still running great, I am about 1% of the pools hashrate, and I get my ~.50 BTC every time a block is found, averaging about one a day. Big props to megauser boom, who found four blocks in a row with ~15GHash/s. My signature link is not because I am affiliated with the pool admin, just because it works!

Looking at the hashrate graph (https://mineco.in/blocks) from earlier today, it looks like the pool was down for ~1 hr. Only Wuked would be able to answer this, and he hasn't checked this forum for two months (although he can occasionally be spotted in #mineco on freenode IRC).

Hey Guys,

The Data centre currently has a problem with heat and have advised that we should power down servers until it is resolved, so I've had to power down the machine running mineco.in.

I don't have any idea when we'll be back online, but when we are I will pay out all rewards and will probably shut down mineco as we are down to about 40GH/sec these days and it's not really worth it, so sorry to all our loyal users, but it's probably time to move on :)

Sorry to hear you're out of the game Wuked.  This pool was always rather attractive to me for offering 0% PPLNS with a reasonable hashrate and was often my backup pool.  Heck, even with a 3% fee this would have been my backup pool.

Best of luck with your future endeavours!
