Simple question: why are you doing this all?



I think that you just need to read the last paragraph of their previous post.

There's no "memory" in probabilities.

The chance of finding a block is the same every time (given same difficulty).

The fact that a block was found right now doesn't mean the next one can't be found right after (or even at the same time).

It's like saying the probability of getting a 6 in a dice roll changes if you just got a 6. It doesn't. It's still 1/6 for the next roll as well.

well thanks for the lesson in how PoW mining works lol but while you are correct that the chance of finding a block is the same every time (given same diff), this is precisely the reason you are also wrong. That is not how probability theory works. Your analogy is flawed.

Probability = Number of desired outcomes / Number of possible outcomes.....so in this case, rolling a die and getting a 6 is indeed 1/6

But since the second event is independent of the first (i.e. the outcome of one event has no effect on the probability of the second event), then the formula becomes...

Probability of both = Probability of outcome 1 x Probability of outcome 2.....so actually the chances of a 6 being rolled consecutively are (1/6)(1/6)=1/36

Sorry, class is dismissed now  Grin

No but really, no hard feelings. I love math so believe me, I've thought about stuff like this many times in my life.  Anyhow, with the chance of finding a block in btc mining being so low (without a substantial amount of the network hashrate), the chance of finding two in any short time frame is very very low....but it isn't impossible which is why it does happen from time to time.  Take care my fellow miner!  Cool

Actually you are mistaken, the second formula you have given is the probability of rolling two sixes simultaneously with TWO dice, not rolling a 6 consecutively.

No idea about the phone number thing though, they don't have my phone number and I run the discord channels for the pool.
Maybe that changed after I joined?

Yeah its a new thing (last 7 months), don't think it happens to everyone, and not sure if its a requirement for new signups.

Its a flag that can be set on the server as well, but discord mainly use it for account verification.

It can happen at any time apparently, I don't have it on mine but then I only use discord for three channels and don't game on it.

Multipool or Slush I reckon

Its as safe as the person using it. There is nothing inherently unsafe about the program itself, but I wouldn't rule out people ability to screw things up.

Have you read through the thread about ckpool (the software, not the pool)

I think its on the first or second page where -ck says "Code to perform payments is not anywhere in the included code."

So the payment processing needs to be done manually as far as I can see.

Have you checked the CPU load on the Pi when you were trying to run that many devices?

I found when I first started I used an original Pi and the CPU couldn't keep up.

Check CPU load on the host device and if its at 100% load then it just won't be able to handle that many devices.

I'm just curious does anyone know how much the cost to operate the server for the one year?

I am not sure about "the" server but I have some of my own servers parked in a virginia data center and it's about $1720/month excluding the cost of the servers. That's for dual redundant power,  crossovers, 1gb dedicated pipe, the rack and other security items.  The servers are where you can spend some serious $.  My newest Dell server was $21,000 so that's where the costs get crazy.


AFAIK from previous info posted here -ck uses a dedicated server from https://us.ovhcloud.com/

It was a while ago now and the specs have obviously been updated since but I'm pretty sure its this one: https://us.ovhcloud.com/bare-metal/infra/infra-1-le/ with the default spec, so about $104 a month.

When I got my first one this winter, I plugged it into the USB port on my PC and ran it just to test, without a fan.

I stepped away for a while, so didn't notice, but it got so hot one of the surface mount chips became unsoldered and fell off, it then stopped mining after a few minutes.

I have a spreadsheet that does it

OP: maybe you should check the last post of the ckpool development thread here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=790323.msg52087086#msg52087086

It should provide clarity for you.

I think it's all luck these days.

That's all its EVER been
15  Bitcoin / Hardware / Re: GekkoScience has a new stickminer that does 300+GH on: March 24, 2022, 12:23:07 AM
I'd say definitely overheating. When I got my first one I plugged it directly into the USB port on my PC and walked away. Got so hot it melted the solder off one of the surface mount chips on the board. Luckily not terminal, once I put it in the Gekko USB hub with some fans it was fine.
Wow, that's wild! And the components didn't fall off?

Yeah it did, but it still works  Shocked

Hello there, got mine today, and I've followed the kanoi's instructions (first I'm trying in Windows before to moving on a rasp), anyways when I started to mining (default speed, no OC) it starts fine as far as i seem, but them it starts slowing the speed until 0. The device is hot (Dont know how much, lets say you can keep your fingers 1-2 seconds). And I don't know what I'm doing wrong.


Well for starters, you definitely do need active cooling. Do you have it?
You'd also need to tell us what hub you are using and if you have a way to measure the current draw.

If you don't, you could try reducing current draw by turning the set screw counter-clockwise (very very slightly, barely any movement is needed for a small adjustment).
Increasing clock speed also usually helps, since the sticks run at like 400MHz+ usually.

I have one stick for example that needs 500MHz and very careful set screw position to run best.

I'd say definitely overheating. When I got my first one I plugged it directly into the USB port on my PC and walked away. Got so hot it melted the solder off one of the surface mount chips on the board. Luckily not terminal, once I put it in the Gekko USB hub with some fans it was fine.

a short question. would like buy a gaming topic, a usb mining stick. i'm located in germany.

does anyone know where to get the USB Miner in europe or germany? Either all sold out or extremely overpriced if you want to buy a new technic toy.

Best regards,
Willi

Yes, thats old firmware. Latest would be Jun 02 2020 as per the Bitmain support site.
19  Bitcoin / Pools / Re: [∞ YH] solo.ckpool.org 2% fee solo mining 265 blocks solved! on: March 15, 2022, 07:13:31 PM
So since the last block 42 days ago with 20 perahash a block has not been found, according to this link one should be found every 66 days ....
http://solochance.com/

Your missing out a key word in what everyone knows about bitcoin mining and what that site specifies in its results. "Chance" not that one "should" be found every XX days, but there is a chance that one is found.

With solo, and pplns pools its all about luck and all the calculators in the world will just give you is probability, not certainty.
