I guess I'm headed north if that's what it takes to get a block.

Since DragonMint miners have found most of our blocks and Avalons have been underwhelming thus far in finding blocks in the last 15 months, I'm hereby declaring that there's statistical proof that the A7 firmware is responsible for our bad luck and the current 322+% of expected shares but still no block.  Grin

And of course the fact that the 'mints account for over 85% of the pool hashrate with s9's in 2nd place has nothing to do with it right? That proves that it is the s9's are to blame... Wink

From what I was once told, other factors (including the Law of Averages)do not change the A7 culpability and that the number of S9s and real-world factors do not change the existing statistics. By extension, a change in A7 firmware would not diminish the lifelong impact that they will have on the pool and even if no one ever uses an A7 again, the bad luck they brought cannot be erased or lessened.  Tongue

2nd V9 added to my farm today (don't laugh please)

Previously only one V9 and the GekkoScience pods & USB miners

Never used a worker name for either

Is it necessary to add work names with the two V9's?

Does the pool prefer the assignment of the difficulty to different workers and would they conflict otherwise?

Sorry for all the newbie questions. TIA  Smiley

Not unless you want to differentiate from each worker. Might be good for troubleshooting or clocking.

No T9 or s9i at these prices huh?

-ck would be the one to chime in on this since he should have actual stats available assuming a miner reports what it is and after all he *did* write the base code for the Avalons. Considering that Canaan has always been up-front with keeping their software as open source highly doubt there is a 'problem' with it.

Do remember that when the s9 1st came out more than 1 pool op made mention of their extrapolated success rate at finding a block not being what they had seen from other (earlier Ants & Avalon6?) miners though that has become a moot point over time.

I was just trying to bait CG as it seemed they were in playful mood considering the lack the block atm.

Maybe the movement in the candles, or maybe it's not so hot there today.

Ok. Looks like the pool needs my help.  Hold on a minute. Let me help the group find that block.

The pool does not care about different speed miners using the same name as they will all be aggregated together. But that said -- not sure what effect that will have on the diff each miner uses. The aggregate hash rate will be the sum of all miners under the name and I suspect that will result in *all* of the miners using higher than optimal diff.

Personally, just use  username.minerID  so each miner is identified and gets whatever diff the pool thinks it needs. All miners will still use the same username for the reward and bonus to that is as said before, you can now easily keep an eye on how each miner is doing.

it is a loser unless your power cost is close to zero

if you have 0-4 cents a kwatt it makes profit.

at 5 cent power it loses   20 cents a month
at 4 cent power it earns $4.43 a month
at 3 cent power it earns $9.07 a month
at 2 cent  ................... $13.71
at 1 cent  ................... $18.34
at 0 cent .................... $22.98

so it should pay off in 5 months if your power is free

of course if you need a space heater and would use one anyway it has more value.
at 0 cent

it is not about better gear right now

the game is cheap power as gear has flooded the market.

Understood

6 cents..... these are short term o/c

Part of the learning curve for this tech before investing in faster down the road

Plus my location / power supply is limited

Each connection has its own diff so it doesn't matter if you use the same workername. Using different workernames is only there for the convenience of the user. If it's of no utility to you then just use the same workername.

Depends on what you have as prices are so low. If I didn't upgrade I'd have a bunch of s7's turned off for a while now and even with the business rate (waiting for my first bill) probably would have turned them off or most. But I won't argue cheaper power makes any asic viable and mining accessible as 1th/s for $25 is really good with a great power rate. Strong bull market makes it even better.

I really hope I can get my exhaust upgraded and get a couple more before market surges and prices go back up. Worse case I have the s7's to power on again. Really excited though to see how the year plays out. Also glad I found a great pool. Even before mfb hired me I was struggling with other pools for a while. Leaving just the s9 on today through he heat, maybe I can kick on the avalons. Couple more hours to peak temp here in Portland. We'll see.
