Title: [Closed] Pure PPS Bonus - CoinSauce - Instant Payouts - 2 Step Sign Up
Post by: BasementMiner! on June 19, 2012, 01:19:57 AM
Pool is closed. See:

It was a difficulty decision to make, but I will be shutting down CoinSauce proxy mining pool indefinitely. There are a few reasons to this decision I would like to note.

We are an unnecessary pool. We don't actually host a pool server on our servers, but proxy the mining requests to other pools. Although we do fail-over from non-responding pools in the backend, we aren't transparent in this matter. Our pool does not benefit the network by distributing hash rate evenly. We are in still control.

There are already a bunch of pools out there that offer better service and track record than us. Mt. Red, EclipseMC, and Ozcoin are some that I recommend.

I would like to thank everyone for using our service, and I will paying out balances + 1 satoshi sometime soon. However payouts are still fully functional and you are able to initiate a manual payout anytime you'd like.

Thanks. I am still working on other Bitcoin projects. :)

If you would like to find another pool, I recommend EclipseMC, Mt.Red, Ozcoin.

Thanks! ;)

Hi fellow miners, I have been working hard these past few days to bring you a new proxy pool to the market.

As a launch special, the rate is set to 100%. You get charged 0% for the benefit of getting paid per share.

Check us out at CoinSauce.org (http://www.coinsauce.org)

# Why us?
Pure PPS - For each valid share you submit, you get paid a fixed amount on-the-spot. Even if the block you're helping to solve comes out to become an orphan.
Instant payouts - Once your balance hits .05 you can cashout your coins immediately, no waiting for 120 confirmations. We even pay the transaction fee as a courtesy of paying your fees!
Low 1.4% fee - While other pure PPS pools may charge 5%, we only charge 1.4%. 98.6% of earnings strictly go to the miners. This is because we take the risk of finding an orphan block and never getting paid.
Full 8 decimal payout - We pay out to the 8th decimal. You get every last satoshi.
Orphan protection - No worrying about the pool mining orphans, you get paid whenever you submit a valid share.
Super simple sign up - Simply paste your Bitcoin address into the input field and press sign up. You will be redirected to your account page afterwards.
Instant stats - Your account page features the latest stats, hash rate and balance. Sexy graphs are coming soon.
Long polling - Seriously, every pool has this, is this even a feature? :D
Hosted on Amazon EC2 - Your account funds will stay safe in a datacenter that has achieved level 1 PCI compliance. Server is secured with private-key access with a TOTP physical token as two-factor authentication to access the AWS account. We use EBS our datastore (redundant storage). Frequent backups to S3 are also in place for disaster recovery.

# Upcoming features
Subworkers - Workers under your account that can be accessed through <username>1, <username>2, <username>3, etc.
Change payment address - Currently you cannot change your payment address without creating a new account. You will be able to do so by signing an message that contains the new address with your private key, and pasting it on your account page.

Even though we take security seriously, we cannot do anything regarding lost funds due to crackers and data loss. Therefore we recommend cashing out when convenient, don't let funds pile up in your account! Profile pages are also public to let others enjoy the satisfaction of clicking a green button so you get your funds faster (no personal information is displayed and payment address cannot be changed).

# How to mine?
After you have registered an account through our 2-step registration, point your miners to our pool using this url. Stats are shown immediately.
http://<worker_name>:asdf@pool.coinsauce.org:8999

# Some potentially popular questions and answers
Since my account page is public, can't others do malicious activites?
No, the worst thing they can do is cashout your balance for you (you get your coins faster) . They cannot change the payment address or anything else. Hell, if they wanted to get coins so bad, they would have been created an account for themselves when they saw our 2-step sign up!

Worker names are also generated through a phonetic key generator to provide a easy to remember and anonymous worker name.

Can I change my payment address?
No, you must create a new account.

You can't seriously come waltzing in here with no reputation of being reliable to speak of and expect to be able to charge a fee from the get-go and get away with it?

Hi, we're sorry for having too little reputation. Thats why we offer instant payouts.
Although that doesn't help a lot with the trust, you be able to cash out immediately.  I'll will strive to answer any additional questions the community has.

I have lowered the minimum payout to .01. You can cashout sooner.
Edit: As a second thought, this will create 5x more transactions in the user's wallet (at the worst) and thus creating more bloat.

How can you possibly account for luck with such a low fee? Do you have 10+k in storage to pay out during times of inevitable bad luck?

Hi, we are a proxy pool that relays validated miner requests to other pools. We don't need to worry about variance that pools with low hash rates suffer.

In the event the pool we are proxying finds an orphan (or multiple), we will still be able to pay our miners without problem from my funds and the pool's fees.

No, unfortunately you only get paid per share in Bitcoins.

So your hopping? Or are you trying the same venture as ABCPool?

There are little pools left that offer proportional payouts, so hopping is not really possible.

Yes, correct we work in the same way as ABCPool, but we have a much more simpler interface. Our backend is powered by Node.js, perfect for network applications such as CoinSauce.

Give us a try, you even get paid to do it! If you don't like us thats fine, you can cashout when you hit .05.

In the end, it's about giving the user steady and predictable payouts at a low cost.

Figured Id play some devils advocate:

ABCPOOL
Quote
A block yields BTC 50. The number of shares needed for one block is by definition on average equal to the current difficulty. We take a fee of 1.5% in return for the compensation of invalid blocks and stale shares, and for the reduction in risk that you get. That makes the calculation for the payout per share.

My maths still shows that 1.7% is more than 1.5%+stale shares paid.

We offer a intuitive web interface with a dead simple sign up and cashout.

1.7% doesn't come out to much after you consider pools like deepbit and btcguild charge an arm and a leg, and it's only .2% more than ABCPool.

I'm considering to pay users half price or full for stale shares. Even though, a good miner like cgminer and long polling will reduce stales enormously. One of my miners that has been running for a month and a half at 1.2ghash has only racked up 320 stales totally, and that doesn't even come up to .01 of a Bitcoin.

But I'm open to criticisms and suggestions. ;)

Oh, I always thought it was 2.5%. Well, seeing as I use it for a backup pool this is better anyway, because at ABC a manual payout has a fee of .01BTC for withdraws under 0.2BTC. I'll be payout out here as soon as I get to around .05 anyway.

As a launch special, I have increased the payout to 105% the full PPS rate.

Just give us a try! If you don't see us fit, thats fine, you can cash out any time you like! :)

i have 19 stales out of 18451 shares on current rd of btmax

stale shares shouldnt be more than around 0.25% really


i think mine would be less except i use my upstream to near saturation much of the day, uploading video encodes

Couldn't I do better with no fee merged dgm from the three amigos?  Just asking... Love the proxy by the way!

What would be best for you? Defining the threshold at sign up or setting it after you sign up when you present a signed message?

I think adding both would be good, thanks!

The profile graphs will come tomorrow. :)

I think allowing everyone to cash out your coins for you is a good way to prevent coins from piling up in your balance. We don't want to be liable for large amounts of lost coins if we ever lose coins (which is unlikely given the precautions we take).

But then again, auto-payout is coming soon, so there's little worry for those who set a threshold.

Sure you can, our pool is for those who want predictable and steady payouts. PPS pools charge a fee because we take the risk of never getting paid if we ever find a orphan.

Unfortunately on other reward methods, miners take the loss. It evens out in the end.

Yes, it'll be 1.7% or something like that after launch. It's not definite yet, I think 1.4% would suffice.

Also, the PPS rate has been updated to accommodate the new difficulty.

Yes, but the database and pool server is on a single instance. I would have to move the database on it's own instance before allowing auto-scaling to maintain data consistency.

;) Hey if you're going to go AWS, you might as well go the whole hog, right? Therefore, EC2 for compute and web frontend, RDS for relational database, DyanmoDB for NoSQL database, S3 for bulk storage of backups, (and an offline backup or 3 of course), CloudFront for website resources (.js, .css, image files, etc.), and of course CloudWatch for monitoring.

Wow, that would be expensive lol. Probably better not.

Haha, yes it would. AWS is great for scaling for services that have don't know their requirements yet, such as us! Once we settle down, I'll get a reserved instance so it doesn't cost as much.

We like to use software that doesn't lock us in. PostgreSQL is on it's own happy island and I don't see why we should go with the NoSQL fad with an Amazon lock-in. ::)

Sorry for the downtime, an automated database migration went wrong. We added a new column for each share storing the hash value, however we did not log this value for old shares, which caused errors when users visited profile pages, crashing the workers.

Hmm, sorry for not having this displayed somewhere clearly. You can click any profile page (go to the stats page) and you'll see the share history. There you will see a payment column on the table where you can see how much we pay per share.

Can't do that at the moment, that would be too low and prone to abuse. I'll try to work something out with those who have low hash rates. Sorry to keep you waiting. :(

Hmm.. How about limiting the number of payouts to like 4 a day or something ? anything above 0.01 BTC but only like 4 times a day and the rest is auto payout'd at like 23:59 Everyday ?

Your "Paying our X bitcoins per second" is incorrect.

For example, right now it reads:

13,271.44 Mh/s
Paying out 0.00000000009395808682 Bitcoins per second
0.00000000009395808682 * 60 seconds = 0.00000000563748/minute
0.00000000563748 * 60 minutes = 0.0000003382488/hour
0.0000003382488 * 24 hours = 0.0000081179712/day


I thought, "Hey maybe he just has too many zeros" so I took six off.

So 0.00009395808682/second
0.0000009395808682 * 60 seconds = 0.0056374852092/minute
0.00338249112552 * 60 minutes = 0.338249112552/hour
0.338249112552 * 24 hours = 8.117978701248/day


And at that MH/s you should make approx ~7.731BTC a day, and 7.731 * 1.05 = 8.11755BTC


Hell, instead of doing that math after I took six zeros off, you coulda just taken them off the original answer, or to be more mathematically correct, took it times 1 million.

I'm getting an issue with your pool not providing enough work and the webpages seem slow to load, bandwidth issues?

I'm getting the message Pool 0 not providing work fast enough for my miner, which isn't very fast (5970@386MH/card/second) but my hashing rate on your website reflects the lack of work sometimes showing close to 800MH but sometimes showing closer to 650. Just wanted to let you know :)

Otherwise, great pool, awesome interface, awesome 105% and logging, and 20 decimal precision :)

Hey guys, really sorry for the inconvinence suffered in the past few days. I'm currently out of town (and in the middle of nowhere). All I have with me is a 3G Chromebook with Debian.

I finally got a 3G connection and was able to deploy the bugfixes. The database should be speedy now.

On the other hand, I'm glad I brought my 3G Chromebook, this hotel doesn't have Wi-Fi!  Although the coverage is shady here :(

I ended up leaving the pool due to getting such a high reject rate that i saw on no other pool but this one, I dont know if the reject rate was due to the overwhelming glitches that the server was having but if they are fixed i would be willing to give the server another shot





On another Note, Is there any plans to having a US server?

I do have a Server available for use if there is talk of one

Those shares were actually invalid. There was a mistake in the query that maked the share valid for all shares. Other than that, nothing was affected.

Could you tell me your username (pm would be fine). :)

The servers are located in California, US and hosted on Amazon EC2. I don't have any plans to move anywhere else simply because of security requirements and ease of scalability. I appreciate your offer though.

I managed to cash out the top users 22btc once, ive tried over the last day or so and it seems sometimes you can cash out and other times you cant.
I guess it means that the pool is just scraping by.

I would recommend that ppl dont leave their payout until its large or you might be waiting a while.
Additionally, eveyone cashing out quickly might be starving the pool while its waiting for confirms or block payouts.

[update] : Just tried to cash out the top users 15btc, got this msg : We cannot send out the payment. Either the hot-wallet is out of funds, or is offline. Usually the former.

Pool is down to around 25GH/s now, thats a huge loss of hashing power.

Hope the pool operator is proxying to other pools because at this rate its not going to solve blocks very fast.

Just a heads up we'll be moving to a new hosting provider (SoftLayer) tomorrow.

The downtime should be minimal (estimated 10 minutes) as all that is required is migrating the database to the new host.

DNS will be updated to reflect host changes. The old pool server will continue to be online until I have confirmed no more requests are routed to it.

Thanks.

I'm going to postpone the migration until I am finished porting the proxy to Go. I'm bringing up the payments now.

Just a heads up we'll be moving to a new hosting provider (SoftLayer) tomorrow.

The downtime should be minimal (estimated 10 minutes) as all that is required is migrating the database to the new host.

DNS will be updated to reflect host changes. The old pool server will continue to be online until I have confirmed no more requests are routed to it.

Thanks.

Why did you start the migration? Everything looked hunky-dory on AWS.

Tell you what.  Set yourself a daily timer and add funds each time it goes off.  This perpetual out of funds business is getting old.

I think once a pool start charging a fee they need to stick to the extra perks such as instant withdrawals otherwise what exactly are miners paying for.

We're definitely not going to charge any fees until I get these logistical issues fixed, the wallet is being filled manually at the moment. Sometimes I don't react fast enough to prevent some of you from receiving payout errors. This will certainly be resolved.

I'm currently working on improving the proxy code which should be done tomorrow.

Thanks for the community's support.

POOL DOWN

Our upstream pool died on us, the automatic failover failed (ironic, right?) so I had to manually switch the pool.

Clearly you missed my sarcasm.

Clearly you missed my sincerity and needlessly obfuscated the thread.

My simple feature request is that we have an auto payout method.
A simple 0.1 or greater auto payout would put this pool in line with the benchmark standard.

This might also elevate the hot wallet out of funds frustration, being that payouts could happen when funds are subsequently available.

Please comment BasementMiner.  You seem to have skipped past my last post.

I don't reply to every suggestion but I do read them. This is already planned and was suggested previously by those who didn't want to receive random payments by other people cashing out for them.

I've added some funds to create a 50 BTC buffer on the pool's wallet, there shouldn't be any payment issues anytime soon.

Thanks.

Its been done for a quite a while now, but there are some private network issues at SoftLayer they are trying to resolve. I'll keep you guys updated.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

I've been up for the past 5 hours attempting to resolve this issue, its nearly 5 AM and it was a hell of a bug to track down.

At first I thought it was an bug in the code, but it wasn't. It turns out our hosting provider's DNS servers (SoftLayer) do not like to be bombarded with DNS requests at the same rate we were receiving getworks/getwork completions. I cached them, now everything is fine.

Now, time for some sleep. ;D

It was a difficulty decision to make, but I will be shutting down CoinSauce proxy mining pool indefinitely. There are a few reasons to this decision I would like to note.

We are an unnecessary pool. We don't actually host a pool server on our servers, but proxy the mining requests to other pools. Although we do fail-over from non-responding pools in the backend, we aren't transparent in this matter. Our pool does not benefit the network by distributing hash rate evenly. We are in still control.

There are already a bunch of pools out there that offer better service and track record than us. Mt. Red, EclipseMC, and Ozcoin are some that I recommend.

I would like to thank everyone for using our service, and I will paying out balances + 1 satoshi sometime soon. However payouts are still fully functional and you are able to initiate a manual payout anytime you'd like.

Thanks. :)

Darn, I enjoyed this service. The interface was nice, payout minimum was small/easy to obtain/achieve, payouts were virtually instant, didn't once have the "pool no providing work fast enough" issue as I've had with other pools, and the simple sign-up was a real plus.

I'm at 0.04266982 exactly. Guess I'll need to wait for your manual payout then.
Also, I'm sorry you shut down the service...it was good when it lasted.

Enjoyed using this pool while it operated.

Unfortunately for those that are AFK, the pool is still accepting shares but not paying out.
I have sent shares for hours after the payout and my account no longer works = no payout.

Regardless of the previous payouts, many are sending shares into a black hole at the moment.
