Wieviele Blocks hast Du schon gelöst?

zum Auszahlungsplan habe ich noch eine Frage

"1. Top-miner ( mit den meisten Shares ) in der aktuellen Runde : +13BTC
2. Top-miner : +9BTC
3. Top-miner : +5BTC

Der Rest von 22.95 BTC wird auf den Rest der Miner, abhängig von deren Shares aufgeteilt."

angenommen, es gibt nur 4 Miner pro Block, dann bekommt der 4. Platz also 22.95, das wäre mehr als der beste Miner. Da stimmt von der Logik doch etwas nicht, oder?

Warum wird das nicht einfach prozentuall nach Shares verteilt. Das ist doch super gerecht und keiner kann meckern.

Wo steht der Server? Wie ist die Ausfallsicherheit?

Hallo ,

Der pool rätselt immer noch am 1. Block. Ist j auch erst seit gestern online mit ca. 2GH/s. Hoffe es werden noch mehr.


Da muß ich Dir recht geben. Je mehr ich darüber nachdenke desto weniger gefällts mir. Ich wollte mich einfach von den ganzen anderen Pools abheben.
Allerdings geh ich davon aus daß es mehr als 4 Miner sind und dann passts ja fast schon wieder. Wenn nicht dann hat er einfach Glück. Keine Ahnung vielleicht ändere ich das ganze nochmal beim nächsten Block. Dieser wird auf alle Fälle noch so gelöst.

Die Server stehen in Deutschland.  Der Webserver bei einem Hoster, der DB und Bitcoin/pushpool Server bei uns in der Firma im Serverraum. ( klimatisiert) stdl. Backups etc. Also von daher relativ sicher.
Sämtliche Passwörter sind mit 20bytes gesalzen und 2fach sha256 gehasht.

Da steht ja +13, +9, ...

Die 22.95 werden ausgezahlt je nach Shares.

Beispiel mit 5 workern:

der 1. steuert 40% der Shares bei = 22.95 * 0.4 + 13   =   22.18 BTC
der 2. steuert 30% der Shares bei = 22.95 * 0.3 + 9    =    15.86  BTC
der 3.    "       15%       "            = 22.95 * 0.15 + 5   =    8.44 BTC
der 4.    "       14%       "            = 22.95 * 0.14        =    3.21 BTC
der 5.    "       1 %       "             = 22.95 * 0.01        =    0.23 BTC


Wahrscheinlich sollen dadurch schnell ein paar dicke Miner angelockt werden.
Allerdings vertreibst du damit alle kleinen Worker und die machen ne ganz schöne Masse aus. ;)

Ja, das ist wohl die Logik hier, die dicken Fische anlocken.
Aber auf Dauer geht das nicht auf, denn wenn es ca. 10 dicke Fische sind, dann fühlen sich die Fische 4-10 mehr als benachteiligt. Ich überlege meine 1,2 GHash auf den Pool zu setzen, aber bei der aktuellen Difficulty und den derzeitigen 2 GHash/s kann es durchaus bis zu 2-3 Wochen dauern bis ein Block gelöst ist, wenn nicht gar länger.

Wenn ich bei einem Pool mine, dann bekomme ich derzeit ca. 1 BTC am Tag. Das sind in 3 Wochen 21 BTC. Nach der Rechnung von klaaster müsste ich dazu in diesem Pool auf Platz 1 liegen um das zu erreichen.

Hmmm... irgendwie bin ich nicht überzeugt.

Um den pool wirtschaftlich zu machen würde ich auf pay per share umsteigen. Dann mit Zusatzdiensten punken um die dicke Fische anzulocken. Evtl. ein Bonus für denjenigen, der den Block gelöst hat einführen z.B. 5 BTC. Das haben die anderen auch nicht. Das motiviert.

Danke für die Kritik. Wie gesagt für den aktuellen Block werd ich das System jetzt mal so lassen.
Die Idee mit PPS und 5BTC Bonus ist prinzipiell auch nicht schlecht. Nur woher kommen die 5 BTC?
Also auch nur 44.5 BTC verteilen ? OK wär wahrscheinlich für die kleinen Miner besser als jetzt.
Wie gesagt ich mach mir darüber auch Gedanken. Irgendwie will ich mich einfach mit dem Pool von den anderen Platzhirschen etwas abheben.

Post by: btcpool24 on June 28, 2011, 11:19:53 AM
Update : 28.06.2011

Nachdem die positiven Reaktionen zu den geplanten Auszahlungen ausbleiben, werde ich die Auszahlung des Pools
ändern. Es wird eine ganz normale proportionale Auszahlung geben. Allerdings nur 48 BTC.
 1.95BTC gehen an denjenigen, der den Block gefunden hat.
 Die fehlenden 0.05BTC sind die Gebühr für den Pool.


So und jetzt kommts:

Für all diejenigen die trotzdem schon minen und sich einen Platz unter den ersten Drei erhofft haben,
 werde ich das System zusätzlich beim 1.Block noch lassen. Sollte einer, der bereits aktiven Miner unter den ersten
Drei Plätzen sein, leg ich die 27 BTC aus eigener Tasche drauf.

 Ich denke das ist ein faires Angebot.

Hallo der Umzug des Pools http://www.btcpool24.com ist so ziemlich abgeschlossen.

 Zum testen der Performance und einiger Skripte unter Last und in realen Bedingungen hab ich mir für heute Abend so ab ca. 20Uhr folgendes überlegt.
 
 Ich stelle meinen bitcoind ´für ca. 100 Blocks auf das Testnetz um (Difficulty z.Zt. irgendwo bei 70) .
Jeder der einen Block findet bekommt 0.1BTC (echte !!!)

 OK, das ist nicht viel, allerdings werden die 100Blöcke relativ schnell gefunden sein. Und ich verschenke sozusagen 10BTC !!!
 
 Also wer Lust, und ein paar MH/s oder GH/s übrig hat, bitte an der Umfrage beteiligen. http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=24320.msg301955#new
Wenn genügend Leute dabei sind werd ich die Aktion heute starten.
 Und so fkt. der Ablauf.
 Vor dem Start bitte ganz normalen einen Account und worker anlegen.
 Ich werd dann die DB einfrieren und wegsichern und dann auf das Testnetzwerk umstellen. Während der Testzeit werden die ganz normalen Auszahlungsquoten (50BTC) erscheinen . Allerdings nur Testcoins. Während des testlaufs kann sich natürlich jeder seine Testcoins auf sein wallet auszahlen lassen. ( Dazu natürlich in den einstellunge seine Testnetzwerk Addresse angeben).
Nach Ablauf des Test wird die alte DB wieder aktiviert und der normale Betrieb fortgesetzt. Danach bekommt jeder der einen Block gefunden hat pro Block echte 0.1BTC auf sein Pool-Konto.

Und ich kann  dann ganz in Ruhe die Daten bzw. Performance probleme etc analysieren.

Also wer macht mit ?

hi

sorry i dont quite understand this, i dont speak german. once first block is solved there will be 48 coins split between the top 3-4 workers? What are the exact splits? So say I mine 20-30% of shares and im first, i get the %shares + %bonus? so say 12-15btc + 13btc? Ive sent 8 ghash to your pool, please let me know, thanks

Title: Re: BTCPool24.com - Official Support Thread
Post by: btcLeger on July 01, 2011, 03:32:58 PM
paying was changed to
48 btc split between all workers (proportional to submitted shares as usual)
1.95 btc extra bonus for the block solver
0.05 btc pool fee

TheKoolio

I think he changed it so that there is no bonus now.

Admin, can you say is there still a bonus for the 1st round or not? If not, there is little incentive to search for 1st block besides testing your pool.

Pools like BTCGuild will share 50 BTC and not 48.
I'm obviously cautious to be sending 7-8+ ghash because it might be you deleted the 13, 8, 5 (?) rewards for 3 top spot. 8 ghash is worth about $100 dollars a day on deepbit PPS.

In that case it's irrelevant to get to those spots; Might just as well stop mining and collect a few BTC later & go to a pool that pays out a full block.


Title: Re: BTCPool24.com - Official Support Thread
Post by: The Koolio on July 01, 2011, 04:37:40 PM
yeh if there is no bonus any more then really no point to mining on the pool. Admin's can you please tell me whether the 1st block bonus of extra 48btc is available. Just to let you know, most other pools offer at least 5 btc to block solver on 1st round. Please tell me asap otherwise i will qn whether to leave my machines on your server. Also to let you know, stales seem to be very high at around 5-8%


Title: Re: BTCPool24.com - Official Support Thread
Post by: btcLeger on July 01, 2011, 04:55:48 PM
yeah, stales where fine some hours ago. had less then 0.5%. But atm its above 5%.

moving my 2Ghash somewhere else till thats solved


Title: Re: BTCPool24.com - Official Support Thread
Post by: Jack of Diamonds on July 01, 2011, 05:08:42 PM
Stales skyrocketed to over 10%, had to change all miners away from your pool.

Post by: btcpool24 on July 02, 2011, 10:15:32 AM
Hello guys,

sorry about the late answer. But: My son was born tonight:  ;D

Stales should be ok now. (blkmond stopped working)

The payout is now proportional now. + 1,95BTC extra for the finder.
All minners that was minning before the change of the payout (read Update news at the home site) will get the old extra bonus 13,9,5 BTC.

i will think about to set the fee to 0% and pay the first 1.95BTC Bonus from my own wallet.
Do you think this will help to get more minners ( also the smaller ones ?`)






Title: Re: BTCPool24.com - Official Support Thread
Post by: Jack of Diamonds on July 02, 2011, 01:31:33 PM
Congratulations if that's true.

Still, nobody with current top hashing rate was mining at the beginning, so you are saying there is essentially no bonus (old miners have no way of catching up, and new miners will not get anything).

Have fun


Title: Re: BTCPool24.com - Official Support Thread
Post by: The Koolio on July 02, 2011, 01:59:33 PM
btcpool24,

firstly congratulations on the new baby, i hope he was born strong and healthy!


secondly, i really think you should implement the old bonus as people like me who divert all our rigs to your site should be compensated. I say this speaking on behalf of myself, 6990er and any other multi gpu users.


Title: Re: BTCPool24.com - Official Support Thread
Post by: btcLeger on July 02, 2011, 02:08:28 PM
Wouldnt that penalize miners down from position 4?

My suggestion for the first block is: 50btc proportional plus the 13,9,5 Bonus regardless when first entered the pool.


Title: Re: BTCPool24.com - Official Support Thread
Post by: The Koolio on July 02, 2011, 03:33:57 PM
the extra 50 btc should be split between everyone one based on their round shares, so in essence the amount given would be double normal amount, that way it doesnt penalise any lower miners as they would stil get double what their shares are worth


Title: Re: BTCPool24.com - Official Support Thread
Post by: btcpool24 on July 02, 2011, 05:08:58 PM
Thank you for your congratulations.  ;D

I know it will be hard to start a new pool. Maybe all the work was for nothing, but i will keep on working on it.

So I decided to payout the full 50BTC + 1.95 BTC extra Bonus for the finder.

For all minners from the beginning will get a extra Bunus. 13,9,5 as i wrote the first two days.

Hope this will help to get more minners to the pool.

I'm also waiting for answer on this one before dedicating any rigs to BTCP24.

He put at least 5-8gh/s daily, should be just as eligible for the 13btc as a guy who mined just 3000 shares before the "update".


Title: Re: BTCPool24.com - Official Support Thread
Post by: btcpool24 on July 02, 2011, 09:27:59 PM
sorry, the update was by 28.6.2011 . Everyone who have submitted at least one share before this update will get the bonus.


Title: Re: BTCPool24.com - Official Support Thread
Post by: Jack of Diamonds on July 03, 2011, 12:32:19 AM
90% of the hashing power comes from people who joined 1-2 days ago.

Even one of the latecomers who will go to spot 2 or 3 beyond mcmeidi (you) will get 0 bonus reward if they keep their spot, because they joined on 2.7.

I know you have a son and all now, but this just seems like one big fuckup. It makes zero sense.

I'm out & hope others will see they are taking a big risk with small pool variance & are practically mining just to give bonus to 1 person + block finder

For some reason im not suprised that yesterday as the site stopped accepting connections that there were two power miners on there totaling 25ghash.... now unless proven otherwise im going to assume that these were the site owners or affiliated and in order to lower the work they needed to do they stopped miners like myself being allowed to connect and then they cleaned up hoping the end of the block was around 600k shares. Owners, please prove me wrong and ill delete this post.

@ koolio

Hi, I don´t know, why my server sometimes kills the connections of some miners. My rig is about 5GHs.
I don´t know the  power miner like flushaa etc.
I think puspool has some problems to handle the high number of getworks.
Please try agein to get connected. When you have some problems again please send me a pm.
With the exact time you ave tried. Then i can have a closer look to the log files.

Doing so will chase away all the other miners that were there from the beginning and cannot match or defend your 8Gh attack on the stats. Not only that but you could create multiple accounts and lock up all the top positions netting you what, 27 BTC. I'm sure you would like to see the payout revert, who wouldn't if they can dominate the pool?

Sorry dont know. Today i changed the stats routine. Maybe there is an error. But i didnt found one know.
Pleas keep an eye on it the next days. Your shares are counted 100%. If there is an error in my routines i will change your prop shares to pps shares.

What happens everytime the 1st block in a startup pool is found :   complete chaos :)
and I've seen it a few times already....

I wouldn't worry...   give the admin a few hours to work things out...

The pool is working now again. All balances are set. Cashout is working again.
i hope next time it is working more better,
i had to handle over 5M Shares in the DB manually to do a calculation.

Sorry!

Hi,
Can you publish some stats like shares etc via JSON feed?

Hi, allready done:

Live stats:

http://www.btcpool24.com/json_stats.php


The website stat.php page shows Round Shares: 253178, but the json_stats.php page shows "shares_this_round":"202142". Which one is correct? That is a pretty large difference :).

The website stat.php page shows Round Shares: 253178, but the json_stats.php page shows "shares_this_round":"202142". Which one is correct? That is a pretty large difference :).

At the top of the page, my shares are listed as 5689.   On the Account Details page, they're listed as 6769.  In my client, 7077.

Also the JSON stats show a second block was found.  The site still shows 1.

Cashout  is deactivated

After i checked for the right balance in your accounts i will activate the cashout.

I think this will be don this evening.

Sorry for this, but this was the first block.

I just did this, because there was abug in the calc routine . I found this after finding the first block. And so i stopped the cashout, to get sure everyone will get the right amount of BTCs.

Ok Stats are working now exactly.

Hope we will find the next block more faster than the 1st.

The payout for the next Block is after about 50 confirms. So i have some time to check the correct calculations of the payouts.

After this the pool will pay alls PP Share just a few seconds after finding a block.

Sure you will get the 1.95BTC extra if you find the block.

calc is exactly (myshares/totalshares)*50

Sorry for the delay. There was a new error in the script.

Post by: btcLeger on August 09, 2011, 05:25:11 PM
I cannot tell if they're there or not cause Im actually mining and counted shares increase anyway. I was just wondering because my shares counter on the stats page was set to 0/0 for prop/pps shares after the crash althoug I had some 100 + x pps and some prop shares on the 3rd block.

The pps are not back in the stats yet. Its not that big problem for me, its only some minutes of mining and the pps may have added to my balance anyway but maybe it indicates a bug in the script.

Tnak you for your help.

i looked in the db and there are no unpaid  pps shares.
The problem  was that the stats were resettet delayed after finding the 2nd block. So after mining a while at the 3rd one the script resettet all userstats. All pps are paid instantly (no matter what block) and pp Shares was reresettet by myself in the db.

Something is going wrong with the pool. !!!

Over 50 BTC are stolen. !!!!

I stopped the cashout options till tomorrow.

I dont know if there is an error in the script or someone has hacked into.

Im searching .

Most of the accounts have to much BTC balance. Good for you bad for me. :(

So some of you have allready cashed out . One User cashed out 25BTC (1 know the name )
I gave you the chance to pay it back. Please PM me.


I will post an update tomorrow.

I will post an update tomorrow.
UPDATE :

What happens ? :   Yesterday between. 21:46 und 22:50  0.05BTC instead of  0.00002647BTC where paid per PPS Share.
                             So the pool paid too much to all active PPS miner
Why ? :                 bug in the script I changed the script that calculated the actual PPS-Amount (50/difficulty) 


And now?              Most of the users have sent back the BTCs. Thank you very much.!!!!
                               Because im dont know the exact time (+-5min) i cant count every PPS.Share. So i corrected only the big balance.
 (>1.5BTC). No user has less then before . normally every PPS Miner now have more than before in his account.
                             If there is a user thinking he must have more , pleas tell me (PM) with details. I will look in the DB and correct it..
                              Hope everything is ok now and every PPS miner who was affected by this bug, have a nice litte plus of BTCs in his account.


                               .

Ok, what you're really missing here is an Estimated field on the site.   There doesn't seem to be a way to see what payout you're to expect anywhere, unless I'm missing it.   I don't think I've seen another pool that doesn't have this field, and it's certainly a very valuable one.

Are you able to add it?

Just a few Ideas :

1) option to reset all machines counters with one button.
2) option to hide/rename/delete workers
3) get the auto pay out to work ( yeah  , I know.. you are working on it.... )

thats it for now...

Sorry but sometimes it would take some hours. I will check all withdraws , because i dont want to have the same problem agin.
At the moment there are no pending withdraws.
Áll withdraws , higher as the average amount from the last ones,will be checked manually.

about 8 hours ago ( before i went to sleep) there were about 1.1 M shares to the round....  now it says over 2M shares...  how did the pool get 900,000 shares in that time?. Also the total of the top 20 user shares adds up to about 1.2M which is about the right amount i think.

Edit:  Rechecked the numbers
         from 10pm to 7am ( 9 hours) the shares went from 1.1M to 2M = 100k shares an hour
         from 7am till 5pm (10 hours) the shares went from 2M to ~ 2.2 = 20K shares an hour....

         something weird happened in those 9 hours....   and of course it effects the payout
         (went from estimated 6 btc to 4 btc in those 9 hours)

At the time you wrote your msg you are correct.   There are 2.2M shares now in the list  of top 20 and 2.5 M in the round - which is logical . But at the time of my 1st message... the top 20 was about 1.2M and the round shares were at 2M shares.

The math just doesn't add up.  Even if some mega hashers came during those hours- and it would have to be another 80 Ghash at least ... the shares weren't in the list.

Title: Warning: work queue empty, miner is idle
Post by: Lord F(r)og on August 21, 2011, 10:49:56 PM
Welcome to the BTCPool24.com support thread.

If you have any questions or problems with our pool then feel free to ask me.

http://www.btcpool24.com

RPC  URL: min.btcpool24.com  Port: 8338

Hi all,

I'm mining at btcpool24 for a week now (first pool mining ever). I got approx. 30 times/hour: "Warning: work queue empty, miner is idle" and sometimes "LP: New work pushed" on both miners. Sometimes both GPUs idle (cool down) for a second or two but most times idles are just mentioned in the guiminer console. Is this normal behaviour when pool mining?
For 2.5 hours now there is no more "LP: New work pushed" and stales are up to 1.15% and 1.6%. Anyone else, or am I doing something wrong?

I use:
2x HD6870 @ stock specs
win7 prof 64
C 11.7
OCL 1.1
AMD-APP-SDK 2.5
guiminer 2011-07-01
-k phatk AGGRESSION=13 BFI_INT VECTORS WORKSIZE=128
around 275 Mhash/s each

When using standard OCLminer with -v -w 128 there are around +10 Mhash/s each but constant “Problem with RPC comm.” messages in guiminer console (same as: "Warning: work queue empty, miner is idle" when using phoenix?)

btw: when are “Top 20 rnd.Shares” updated? I’m already in!

thx in advance, HU


edit

stales are now 1.2% and 1.64% (seems to be rising)

now rising to 1.59% and 2.06%

I'm interested in setting up my miners with this pool, but it seems that whenever I try to connect, my miners will lose their connection intermittently every few minutes which drastically cuts down on my overall hash rate. I use phoenix phatk kernel via guiminer and connect to port 8338.

What can I do to get a solid connection to the pool?

Made a few miners yesterday to test your pool.
Did a .1 or so BTC 'instant' payout and the status has been 'pending' for 2 blocks?
Is this normal?
-Not really instant

Hi guys,

sorry for all the troubles at the moment.
I was on holiday last week, and i had heavy troubles with the internet access.So i was not able to support the pool all the time.

So im back in business, and i will answer all your questions.

Stats: im not cheating with stats !! There was a jump from 1.9 to 2.5M Shares .(The graph allways shows the real shares counter) There was a cronjob stopping to work for realtime stats.
         
Stales / disconnection: I will have a look at the logs . But i don´t have seen any issues with my own rig. Stales about  0.6% , no empty qorker queues or anything like that.

Payout: As you know, it is a very small pool at the moment. And the 4th block seems to be a monster. At the moment the pool runs out of BTCs. ( A lot of PPS Miners) I made a deposit at tradehill and when it will be confirmed i will by BTCs to fill the buffer. Till then all payouts will be pending. I think tomorrow all pending withdraws will be paid.

Every miner will get paid.

I hope the next blocks ´will be found faster . :D

Good luck

what does cronjob mean?     I still dont understand how the pool went from 1.1 to 2M shares in 9 hours and the shares were not in in the top 20..  


EDIT:  Ok  , saw what cron job means .You mean maybe that the 1.1 M shares was incorrect when i saw it?  The share amount wasnt updated?


as far as the stales disconnects...     i moved my machines to a diff. pool. and stales dropped to 0.5% from 1.5-2.5   and almost no disconnects or restarts.  I didnt change anything in the setup.  so please check it out.
Hope you had a good holiday :)

When you decided to go to PPS we talked about that. Even Arsbitcoin which has PPS like yours has gone into negative buffer after having about +750BTC in the buffer....   so lets hope for MUCH better luck  and fast.

            Your donations can be found at "myStats". Thanks for the great support !! So i hope i can keep the pool without any fees.

Block 5 was invalid, unfortunately.

Guys, basically I had around 0.6 BTC on my account here at BTCPool24, however, I selected the manual payout option about 1 hour ago and there's still no sign of the BTC on my wallet. Yes, I have all the blocks downloaded already, as I just got some BTC out of MtGox and it showed up instantly.

The admin does the payout manually so sometimes a takes a little time.
But the payment always arrives

Look at "MYSTATS" while your withdrawal is pending it cant be in your wallet.
I do the first payouts manually.
But now i confirmed your payout.

When will this pool have some good ( or even standard ) luck ?
And NO, getting a 110K round after an almost 2M round that was INVALID  doesn't count :)

2m rounds are considered standard at 1.8 million difficulty. A "typical" block will be found after 1806098 shares.

Btcpool24 is quite 50/50, it has 3 longer high percentile rounds and 2 that fall in the average frame (and one very lucky at 100k shares).

This pool averages out at 2.7m per round which is a bit higher than usual (overall pool luck 50% negative), but that will even out in the long term.
6 blocks is a very, very small sample.

e- yes, 50%

2.7M is 50% more than 1.8M  so its 50% loss in revenue on the PP.   And this round so far is over 2.2M 2.4M 2.6M 3M 3.25 3.4M 4M!  4.6 :(
True , 6 rounds is nothing in statistics... but it still hurts :)

I just wondering, for cashout, how long does it take to change from pending to OK status
Are you trigger by a cronjob scheduler

Hopefully he will live up to his words....


I don't mind if there is a delay in payment, but there should be some Information
from the admin.

seems everyone is bailing out on the pool because of lack of payment and lack of info.

This pool operator have been good with communication in the past, though he has not been on lately. I am definitely giving this operator a benefit of a doubt, but for now I did stop mining there also. I did send a pm to the operator yesterday, but no response yet. I really like their pps pool and hope that I can come back mining with btcpool24.

Also want to note that payment was processed for me on the 6th automatically after a request, but not for the one on the 1st which is still pending status. This kinda shows that maybe there was some type of hiccup with bitcoind and the backend back on 1st? Just guessing but that seems to be the common issue generally with payouts. If the pool operator was trying to skip on payments, there is no reason that payouts requested later would get processed like it did when the previous ones are still pending status imo.

Would be nice to get some response from the man himself tho..

As far as I know, He does all the payments manually.
 Kind of weird that newer payments went through and older ones didnt.

I really like this pool, I will come back once he clear my pending payout, the guy just have a new baby a few weeks ago, I understand and hope he will response soon, the only thing I am concern is his btc buffers for the pps miner, if the round is exceed over certain amount of shares he have pay out of his pocket, just hope this block of hell end soon.

I like it too and I remember how hard a new baby is   BUT for the people that use the pool its also ( or sometimes only ) about the money.
The BTC buffer for PPS is a big problem but he said he was willing to take the risk for a few blocks.
All we want is some communication....

I'm first to say that this pool operator is a scammer. He didn't pay the bitcoins for a week and he is not answering any questions.

hmmm....    Not exactly   he didn't make any money, quite the opposite. He had to pay a couple of hundred btc
from his pocket to pay.   So he isn't a scammer. He possibly just made some bad decisions and maybe
something has happened to him and the pool is running on its own for now.

We will wait and see

Well, I know that this pool owes me some coins atm, but I also know that the admin did suffer obvious losses due to early bad luck. If he is not paying, it's most likely that he just can't atm, not that he is just holding funds that is available. But he's not around... so I can't just keep defending him based on past experiences..   :-\

I just hope that he can recover and continue to operate the pool because it certainly is one of the best option for pps there is out there.
