Another little update: After a few days of sitting at 19M I just checked and had another little grin. Besthash: 1,205,870,795

Not exactly a block, but it was a nice share just the same. I'm proud of my little Sparky!

damn you getting close, i had like half billion as best share, not even in the billion game yet..


Toguth i started to mine normally now will continue after i roi the new machines Wink

Wow!  Congrats on hitting a block!  You've inspired me to switch my miners over to CK's solo pool, which are 2 S3s and an S1.  Happy solo mining!

I have been solo mining all night on CKpool solo version and found a new block on Stratum 0. Does this mean anything, or just verbosity of the cmd.exe doing this?

if I count with the array then I down at 0.025 but it also depent how strong the dollar are to swedish kr
how much do you pay for one kwh in dollar?

when I looking in the diffrent antmine s4 have a higher gh/s then s5?
are s4 better then s5?

if I go for s5 should I mine in a pool and wish one?
and how much bitcoins will the s5 give me? dont need bo be exact just normal nr



That depends on your electricity cost, budget, housing location. Give me/us more information and you will get a recommendation. The S4 isint bad, just the price its listed at is. And unless you're looking for a lottery, you will have to mine in a pool.

Okay
I'm living in sweden
my electricity cost it 0.08 dollar/kwh
I have also 10kwh Solar array
my budget are little open depending on what recomendation people give but max 1200 dollars.
Internet connection are 100/100 mbit.
Something more you need to know?


Not really 0.08 is a bit high and kind of in limbo right now with the S7 coming in but being too expensive and the S5 soon to be devalued. Depending on how much extra power you get from your solar array, then you could go for S4/S5 if obtained at a good price.

I'm not sure whats your true expense is on your solar array but if you have wasted electricity that you dont get to use. Go for it. There's also SP20 units and such. S5 is just easier to quiet down a bit.



Daarn, You may not like it but - my friend - you don't know enough to start buying anything just yet. I'm sorry, but I want you to be successful and you won't be if you just jump in with both feet and eyes closed. The only thing you should do now is read, research, and learn. A good start is reading the first 2 pages of the forum here

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=14.0

And here

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=81

And finally the first two pages here

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?board=40.0



This should take you 2 days if you stick with it. A week if you like to sleep. Smiley  After that you will be able to ask good questions and we will be glad to help! Good luck!

P.S. I envy you living in Sweden. Beautiful country and beautiful women Smiley

Thank you for the additional info. Need to brush up asap. Good source of info, methinks. Now I won't be that damn n00b down the road.

So far my highest yet  Grin

Been pointing miners (S1/Sidehack) at solo.ck for a week now, Best shares is 8m and 3m. I'm pretty damn far from having solved a block, this is a lottery i'm not likely to win, damn.

Hopefully someone else in the sidehack pool club will do better than me lol.

xD I understand the semantics, but facts remain if i had gotten a 58335351233 share i would of said, OMG almost found a hash good enough. So close, damnit! Or something. ^_^"

But sure i get its not relevant to "progress to the next block found".

The year's not done yet so yep, still mining. Difficulty is getting insane but like we've said many times "All it takes is one share". You could get it with a block erupter or CPU mining.

I made a crazy ROI already with the first 25 BTC mined so I'm not sweating it. Best share since I posted last was around 4 billion. Since that time I've been playing with Eloipool, trying to get it to work for me. Sparky went offline for a day playing with that, but it never worked so I put him back to work full time again. His best share right now is..... 253,120,154. Pretty good, but not a block. Wink

Solo mining is alive and profitable!

This thread isn't about profitability or share count, he is solo mining so the only share that matters is one that is greater than network difficulty.

When solo mining is your miner on non stop for the full year or did you reboot in between to clear HW errors. does rebooting add to your time  or does ckpool remember where you were last

What do you mean, add to your time? There is no progress toward finding a block in the first place, therefore it does not matter if you restart the miners all the time.

Solo mining its like a lottery, If you have more power you will have more numbers, but isn't about time. You can have good luck and solve it in your first month or it can take more than one year.

Could you tell us what you were pointing on the solo pool? Maybe i would be inspired to put more hashrate toward this if its something i could spare.
