Hi guys... I posted a post asking for some advice and got some helpful advice. We got 3 antminer U3s for free from a guy at my uni. So while most of us are interesting in buying over mining bitcoins, we have decided to set them up to solomine, seem to read ckpool is good? Basically better than playing the lottery every month, at 63 GH/S the probability of 'winning' is small but i dont see it easy to do a ROI with high end equipment, and to mine solo with that i dont see as good, one could wait 60 years and never find a block, or mine for 1 second and get a block.... So i decided to do this... Given its power draw is minimal i feel for solo mining thats the best way to put low powered equipment... would kill to put it in a pool and then have IT find the block and get little payout!

So it COULD find a block... or it could not... But to tuck it away in the corner connected to my server, i might as well! Is ckpool or securepayment.cc any good for this task? i confused the two and found ckpool DID pay out for the other guy using an S3 to solo mine.

solo.ckpool is very reputable.  There's a few others with varying fees as well.  Hadn't heard of that .cc site, but as long as you can inspect the headers sent to your mining software of choice and confirm the payout address(es) and amount to include your address and the amount expected, there isn't much in the way of getting swindled.  Still, I'd stick to the tried and true ones.

Ckpool is the best choice, they are safe to mine with.
Most other solo pools end up giving you quite large fees, sneaky buggers they are.
Question; why don't you just mine on your node instead of shuffling around solo pools? I'd say that it's much better than letting some unknown pool handle your 25 BTC so should you mine it. (Not including CKpool, ck always pays out)

Hi there, I'm from South Africa.
This means I'm poor, I guess.

I have tried mining with my own node but it doesn't recognose its running as a server even though i created the CONF file the mining program (BFGminer) can't find it at 127.0.0.1:Portnumber i will use CKpool for now until i get this setup working.
