what is the diff on your pool? have you put it higher than your miner? i cannot get above 1k on a solo pool should i make my own and raise the diff?

My difficulty is 54 billion because I mine against the Bitcoin Core to support the network. See my earlier post on how to set it up. When I mine against the backup pool, CK's pool, it's 1000.

Setting your difficulty isn't necessary. It's done automatically from the software you're mining against. Don't get hung up on it. It's a non-issue.

Yeah i was trying to set up like you did, but i get alot of errors, it tries to lock the drive, i cant change the main file :/, do i need to downlkoad all blocks first?

You don't need to change any files. You just change the shortcut to add arguments (all those -RPCALLOW, etc lines) and add the bitcoin.conf file.

You do have to download all the blocks before you can mine against it. That takes me about a week.

My best share is over a billion.  what does that mean exactly?



{"hashrate1m": "1.71T", "hashrate5m": "1.59T", "hashrate1hr": "1.73T", "hashrate1d": "2.81T", "hashrate7d": "3.81T", "lastupdate": 1440526599, "workers": 3, "bestshare": 1040364338.2521818}

That's the closest hash to the network difficulty your machine(s) has solved so far.  You need a best share > network difficulty and submit it first to successfully solve a block.

When true solo mining (against your own node) the only share you will see submitted is a share greater than network difficulty.  Otherwise, it's just cosmetic so you can see that your miners are, in fact, working.

I wonder if/when you decide to sell your S3 if you can charge a premium, since it's obviously a VERY lucky miner!!!

you are puttign to much hash for solo, i mean how much energy are you using for hoping for one block?.

i have an s3 coming so i prentend only to have a s3 mining solo rest will keep on mining.

You need to make something if you got money on the machines and wasting energy for " nothing ".

I say that 14th is alot for hoping on solo , put one machine for lottery and get some cash for the rest   Smiley

Thanks for the input, I've already ROI'd on the gear and I have very cheap power at the moment.  I'm only going to run this way for a couple of weeks.

You can never put "too much" energy into solo mining. Remember, all it takes is one hash!


I really get a kick out of reading you guys running solo rigs and supporting the cause. "They said it couldn't be done. We proved them wrong!"


Another little update. I was bleary eyed this morning and opened my miner's page to look at the shares. He said, "Best Share 562,331,786" and because I was tired I read three more placeholders in that number. So something like this:

562,331,786,948


And I thought...Whoah! This guys the best miner in the world! But then I blinked and saw "FoundBlocks = 0" and had to re-peek at that share number again. oh well, it was an exciting 30 seconds! LOL!


Keep on hashing guys!   Cheesy

Solo mining is alive and profitable!
