A couple of questions if I may...

One, I have apx 110TH/s that I can point to ckpool.org. I was looking at the BTC.com link on ckpool showing the number of blocks found by ckpool. I have to pay my power bill with the BTC I'm generating - but am wondering with so few blocks found in the last 2 months by ckpool - can I count on payouts enough to cover power? I mean, with BTC at the current rate - if I need 4 blocks of payout and only 3 get found - I'm leery. Would like to try - but I HAVE to be making enough to pay the power. I'm paying apx $0.07/kWh. Just installed the LPM firmware on my S9's a few weeks ago - so not sure what my power bill will be, but prior to that I have been in the $700-$750 pre month range (I also have a few L3 variants running as well).

Two, does this pool allow the S9 variants to use the ASICBoost(LPM) firmware to be utilized? It has dropped my power consumption noticeably - I'd hate to have my power use ramp back up if not supported.

Three,  I assume from looking at the other miners on the pool that this would put me in the top 50 for being on the payout schedule each time - am I reading this correctly?

Thanks!

yeah 110 th means every block  you get paid .

variance can be hard.  you could do 35 th + 35 th + 35 th   nicehash, viabtc and ck.

I have been getting paid at 35 th almost every block  think 1 carry over in the last 20 blocks.

I am not sure if  asicboost antminer works here  ck can answer that.


Philipma1957, do you have any experience with KanoPool? They are smaller too - but maybe splitting between ckpool and kanopool - would have a better chance at 8 to 10 blocks per month which would probably give enough variance to cover bills better. And just out of curiosity - why ViaBTC? Looking at WhereToMine, it seems they are a little ways down on the lists for best payouts. Is it because they are not in China and to help spread the processing power - or other?

first off I used to mine kano I stopped.  My reasons are long and complex which I will not go  into it on this thread.

I mine mostly with ck I have 90th here and 55th on viabtc.

I rather have all my hash here but I can only handle some variance with the tight margins with low btc price.

so  the 55th at viabtc has zero variance I get  my share  the pools payout on every block 98 percent of every block is paid out.  I get my payout when I reach 0.01 btc  say every 3 or 4 days. 

but it is only 98 percent of the block with 0 for the fees.

on ckpool  we get 99 percent  of the blocks plus the fees   . 

so if luck is normal ck wins.
if luck is great ck wins.
if luck sucks viabtc just pays the same.

this is the only true way to flatten variance
some hash on a pool like ck
some hash on a pool like viabtc

if margins get loose  and price of coin goes up I will move more hash to ckpool and less to viabtc.
Isnt the payout on ckpool 100% not 99% unless your solo mining?

Contact me about crypto hosting. Guaranteed to be cheaper than 99% of any other hosting solution. You will always make a profit with me hosting units.

I forgot if he was still fee free

then it is 100% plus the fees-- but variance can kill you
while viabtc is 98% ------------ but no variance

so I blend them

90th with ck
55th with via

and those change mostly to more ck not more viabtc


I was on a pool once it had back to back 99% cdf blocks
roughly 500% +500% or 2 blocks instead of 10 blocks
I no longer take that chance.

By blending with the 2 pools and supporting the most likely to earn more in the long run ck more then the other I am happy with that.

here are my addresses here

http://ckpool.org/#/miners

17   1KEKZNuNwXzsWnxFjwZDc5s9w8x5cqgJQx .... 52.4th

26   16yLHLoeyuCLPMXkVpC3gyrRYvwRGwjKJr ... 32.1th

you can see they have been here a long time.

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

Yea, I don't have much hash but all of it sits here except when I game slushs shitty scoring system on a luck run.

I've only been mining a little over a year now and have been through a dozen or so pools. -ck's is by far the fairest scoring there is, with zero fee's, and no baiting of whales to join.

Real miners mine here imo.

well  actually this pool is pretty good.

why 13.8ph and not more?

don't know but I am tempted to point some serious rental here tonight.

I finally cut a deal  with a guy that has a decent amount of power with a good price.

 I should be expanding soon.

maybe 8x 30amp  240 volt circuits

that is about 30 more s9i's

LOL just 28 hours ago it was about 49 days to full 5N, now it's 105 days and going up as I type.
Not a good incentive to attract new miners. I'm wondering, if one started mining a couple days ago at
40 something days to 5N and now 2 days later it's over 100 days to full 5N, which number of days applies to that miner?

The good news is that I was making zero from running the pool with a higher hashrate so I'm not losing anything by it falling, which means the pool won't be going anywhere. If enough people wise up and realise they'd be better off here, things might change in the future, but this is pretty much how I expect things will continue to pan out as sheep keep mining for ants.

You're still getting paid for every, single, hash here regardless of ramp up. If anything it's just more BTC per block as we sip some on some good shit. Personally as a hobby miner I'll be able to soak one more month of all four of my units online after that I'll be fine with one s9 LPM and some newpacs running. My gpu's will go offline before those.

Thanks for the info. My S9i LPM miners are running at 14T and 1148 watts. I can hang out here and sip some LaPhroaig and wait for the block.

Maybe I wasn't clear enough. The question is if a miner begins mining at the pool when it takes 50 days to get to full 5N
and then 2 days later it now takes a new miner 100 days to get to full 5N, does the first miner still have 50 days to get to full 5N
or is it now more? "Fractions.....run the numbers" I'm not sure how to "run the numbers" on this question.
