1  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Pools (Altcoins) / Elitehash Actinium PPS Pools on: December 27, 2018, 05:39:05 PM
Actinium is usually one of the most profitable lyra2z coins to mine, here's a PPS pool for it:

Here's a collective thread for all Elitehash mining pools, which finally have this awesome looking main site:

Aiming for good payouts here, not looks.
3  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Pools (Altcoins) / Elitehash SUQA PPS Pools on: November 30, 2018, 01:31:32 PM
Here's a thread for these servers, too. Currently paying 99.2% PPS, check out Starting with servers in the EU & US
4  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Pools (Altcoins) / Elitehash Gentarium PPS Pools [DISCONTINUED] on: August 21, 2018, 10:12:33 PM
No point in trying to gather miners anymore as the coin is going full POS soon. Pool closed.
5  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Pools (Altcoins) / Elitehash Gincoin PPS Pools - 103% on: July 06, 2018, 03:55:06 PM

This is the lowest paying PPS pool we have on Elitehash. The pool had such a hashrate spike recently, there was no other choice to prevent bankruptcy with the reserves we have. The lowest payout rate was 90%, but currently it's back up to 93.7% 94% 93.2%. Hopefully we can reach 97% after getting some more reserves. I've heard it's not so rosy on the bigger pools either, thanks NiceHash! And BTW NiceHash is not supported at Elitehash.

Pool is offline until new stratum server is deployed!
6  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Announcements (Altcoins) / CryptoHashTank - Shared Masternodes, PPS Pools & more! on: June 28, 2018, 02:52:37 AM
I'd like to present the shared masternode service of CryptoHashTank, This service is not run by me, but I've been working with the owner (Michael Schwenk) this past year, building up our community in Telegram & Discord. My focus has been on the PPS pools, while Mike has been working with the shared masternodes. I have threads for the PPS pools here, and they are linked in my signature too. Today I finally gave this service a go myself, as I only had 866 Mogwai and it had become so hard to mine (need 1000 for a masternode). Took less than an hour and my coins are now part of a masternode pool!

We've been running for some time now without a thread, so here's one. I'm one of the administrators of this pool, We're focusing mainly on new coin launches (MANO coin being the latest) and running PPS pools for some more established coins. Feel free to post any questions and welcome to our pools!
8  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Pools (Altcoins) / Elitehash Raven PPS Pools - stable rewards, payouts every hour! on: May 09, 2018, 06:51:13 PM
Welcome Elitehash pools,

There's practically no variance on payouts as it's PPS, and the payouts start rolling almost instantly. Balances above 5 RVN are paid multiple times per hour (ask for custom thresholds!), idle balances are paid out quickly too. The pool payout rate varies but I try not to make radical changes. Obviously nothing like going to 50% payout rate suddenly. It's displayed like that because it's been over 100% - though that's unlikely to return in the foreseeable future.

If the pool loses hashrate noticeably, payout rate is probably increased, because less variance has to be absorbed.
If the pool gains hashrate rapidly, payout rate will probably decrease, unless it seems possible & reasonable to endure the increase in variance.
If the pool hashrate doesn't move enough to warrant changes, payout rate may still be adjusted in small ticks.

These principles should help understand how the rate behaves. I have a natural incentive to abstain from making shocking changes, but that doesn't mean I'm perfect. There have been 2 or 3 situations that I would've liked to have prepared better for, when I felt like I was making changes too suddenly but was forced to anyway. That number would be double if I hadn't opted to give the pool some 'loans' to bail out from bad luck. I'm glad those have been repaid already, now the focus is on better stability so it doesn't have to happen again.

Perhaps we can return to focusing on high payout rates at some point. I thought that - having started almost a year ago - it would be obvious that I have an incentive to keep things running, and hence fix any delays in payments. These happened semi-frequently when I still tried to keep the payout rate as high as possible. Experience shows that people didn't think like that; the level of panic was higher than anticipated. Today it's the opposite, I really expected more sullen comparisons agains past rates. Of course it's only fair to compare against real results from current pools, but not everyone cares Smiley

It's odd how silent all miners are now. Surely there are more features people want, assuming there are no problems (there always are...)? Naturally I'd like requests for features that don't even exist anywhere else yet. Don't let that turn you down!
9  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Altcoin Discussion / Lightning support in altcoins on: April 21, 2018, 07:25:58 AM
Everybody knows that Litecoin was a pioneer in SegWit and Lightning technology. Now there are at least lnd and c-lightning, worthwhile projects both. But does anyone know how compatible these are with altcoins? For Litecoin there obviously is an implementation, what are they using? But the coin I'm thinking about mainly is Bitcore. It is claimed to be SegWit-ready and is based on Bitcoin 0.15 currently. What does it actually take from an altcoin to be LN-compatible?
10  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Pools (Altcoins) / Bitcore PPS Pools on: April 09, 2018, 02:36:28 AM
Welcome to Elitehash Bitcore PPS Pools

Unlike the usual proportional pools, there is no variance on payoutsv here. Each share is added to your balance, with a rate of 100%

Just 1 server for now. The pool was relaunched with updated code


There's an active telegram group & discord server if you have anything to ask! Of course you can also PM me here.
11  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Pools (Altcoins) / 102.4% PPS Bitcore pool - OLD THREAD on: January 10, 2018, 12:29:06 AM
I'm running a 102.4% PPS Bitcore pool. Payouts are done hourly with customizable thresholds, and as it's PPS, there is no waiting for blocks or confirmations! PM me for details.

A new thread will be made for this, and linked here. Current pool servers (sharing stats from each other): In the EU: and in the US: +

As the biggest Bitcore pool ( has grown to over 33% of the network hashrate, we really need to make it less centralized. I encourage everyone to join my pool at, where the fees are as low as possible. Currently this is 0%, but if it gets bigger I won't be paying the transaction fees myself forever, so it might have to be raised to 0.1% at some point. If is the go-to pool today, and UMine is for those who don't want to pay fees, then my pool is for those who REALLY don't want to pay fees and don't mind a bit of variance.

EDIT: Pool isn't zero fee anymore, and most of the hashrate is missing. Difficulty got too high and is still going strong :/
12  Alternate cryptocurrencies / Pools (Altcoins) / Pool software for solo mining on: December 25, 2017, 10:52:36 AM
What's the recommended pool software to use for solo mining nowadays? In the past I used eloipool, but it seems to have been abandoned. ckpool from the maker of cgminer seemed very promising, but altcoins are not officially supported. Knowing ckolivas, I believe that just means he doesn't want to answer the endless stream of questions regarding altcoins, not that the pool would somehow be inherently incompatible with altcoins.

I'm currently trying to mine Bitcore. With eloipool, I get this error in a loop when the pool manages to connect to bitcored RPC:
2017-12-25 12:50:36,847 merkleMaker     WARNING Template from 'primary' loosely requires unsupported rule 'testdummy'
2017-12-25 12:50:36,852 merkleMaker     CRITICAL        Traceback (most recent call last):

    FirstTemplate = not hasattr(self.curClearMerkleTree, 'MP')
AttributeError: 'merkleMaker' object has no attribute 'curClearMerkleTree'

And with ckpool there are no errors on the pool side, work is being generated but all shares get rejected.
13  Bitcoin / Development & Technical Discussion / Duplicate problem when labeling addresses with Bitcoin-qt 0.7.1 on: November 04, 2012, 10:07:40 PM
I have a bunch of receive addresses on my wallet, mostly for different mining pools. Sometimes when renaming a label, another label undergoes the same rename operation. I investigated this more closely and noticed that every time I rename the label of a certain address, it always causes the additional renaming of a certain other address. For example, every time I rename my Deepbit address, my Mt.Gox address is renamed to whatever I renamed the Deepbit address to. The other label isn't actually permanently renamed, because it reverts to it's original name after I restart the client. This is certainly a bug, and I could help debugging it if I had some instructions.
14  Bitcoin / Mining support / Can't read 5970 sensors with cgminer on: September 09, 2012, 12:23:28 PM
I tried to create yet another mining rig with a new 5970 + 5870. The OS is Debian Wheezy, and I'm using Catalyst 11.12 + SDK 2.5, just like on my other Linux rigs. All the GPUs are detected in cgminer, and it's hashing as expected. The problem is that GPU0 (the first core of the 5970) doesn't have any temperature reading, and both cores of the 5970 don't have a fan speed reading. The 5870 has both readings. My other 5970 cards with the same Accelero Xtreme HSF display their temperatures and fan speeds just fine. The new 5970 is even the same XFX model as the card I bought before it, which works perfectly.

Strangely, cgminer doesn't detect the new 5970 as a dual GPU card, when checked with cgminer -n. Also, aticonfig --odgt can't display the temperature for the first adapter either, it only works for adapters 1 and 2. fglrxinfo lists all the cards, and I'll say again, all the GPUs are hashing. cgminer also states "hardware monitoring enabled" for all the GPUs.

cgminer -n output for the problematic rig:
cgminer -n output from a rig that works fine, showing the dual GPU detection:

I believe the "Failed to ADL_Overdrive5_FanSpeedInfo_Get" error is not connected to this issue, because it also happens on my other rigs with similar 5970 cards, while the fanspeeds are displayed anyway.

To rule my Linux setup out of the equation, I even tried to install Windows on the rig. MSI Afterburner shows the missing sensor readings, but cgminer still can't show them. Temperature for GPU0 and fanspeeds for GPU0&1 are still missing, and cgminer -n doesn't detect the 5970 as a dual GPU card.

So, all the GPUs are hashing normally on both Linux and Windows, but the only sensor reading cgminer can get out of the 5970 is the temperature of the second core. Anyone else ever heard of a "special" 5970 like this?
15  Other / Meta / Avatar size is handled strangely when using an url on: April 27, 2012, 10:02:51 PM
I just changed my avatar to a 80x80 PNG image, but it didn't work correctly at first. When I used my Gravatar URL, my avatar was stretched to 120x80 by the HTML, even though the original image was 80x80 when I examined the stretched image. After downloading the PNG from the Gravatar URL myself, and uploading the file as my avatar, it wasn't stretched anymore.

Is this a bug, or some feature I can't understand?
