I just hope the the new and improved Slush 2.0 solves this long-assed block soon and moves on Smiley
What Slush 2.0?  Did I miss something?

Hello MinerTE,

When I launched mining.bitcoin.cz in late 2010 I didn't really expect the pooled mining concept to become such a success. At the beginning, mining was accessible rather to geeks but gradually the expectations towards a mining pool service have changed a lot.

My goal now is to introduce completely new features and cutting-edge technologies that will make mining accessible to newcomers as well as keep mining.bitcoin.cz attractive for advanced users.

A few months ago I started to make preparations for a new edition of the pool - Slush Pool 2.0. The changes will be gradual and will lead to better user experience. The result should be simply a stronger pool with some great new benefits for you.

Consider today's news as a warm up. In a short time I will release a few more enhancements.

Thanks for being with my pool and good luck! :-)

Thanks.  Though I visit this thread as much as I can, I obviously missed this news somewhere on here.  How long ago was this?

https://mining.bitcoin.cz/news/ is the public source of this information.

I don't go there very often (in fact, I've never been there before AFAICR), but I've looked around trying to find something when the news about Slush Pool 2.0 appeared in the forum... ;-)

Thank you, Graet... that is kind of fascinating... how come I am not using BTC Guild again? What would be the advantage, other than the fact they seem to be finding the majority of blocks...?

thanks again!

russell

Do you think that the fact they're finding the majority of bocks is itself an advantage for every single participant?

Thanks.  I'm just so keen on viewing the accounts and stats pages (and this forum when something goes awry with the pool Smiley) that it made me oblivious to the fact that there is indeed a "News" link on the page.

It‘s called variable difficulty, or simply vardiff.


I like it.
It is constantly re-adjusting, even for Erupters.
This must reduce the volume of network traffic considerably, and give a much more stable supply of data to the servers.

It's something most other pools have had for the better part of the year Tongue.  Yes, it does dramatically reduce traffic, since most users don't bother to change their own difficulty.  Probably less than 10% of overall users, and less than 50% of the top 100 users on any given pool (the ones who benefit the most) actually adjust their difficulty pool side, so vardiff massively reduces overall traffic to the pool.

Is the bitcoin boat sinking?

Looks like it, 15 hours for a block between yesterday and today... That is on Slush's Pool. If the difficulty goes to 200000000 (which is most likely) in 2 weeks time will it still be worth to mine on pools for small miners? Maybe we should all go solo? You won't get much out of pools neither solo but hey if you find a block when soloing it's all yours!  Grin Would be nice to hear what you guys think about it.

Also I was thinking of investing in a Cointerra 2TH box but by the time I get it (Jan or probably "2 weeks time" after that deadline) the difficulty will be so high that you'd need 20TH to mine anything.

And another query, if mining will become impossible/unprofitable for most people will Bitcoin lose its steam?

"Is the bitcoin boat sinking?" - not censoring you - just find the post incredibly tedious to read.

I'm actually selling fury miners on ebay - not asicminers - and you think I wan't to silence you in case the whole world sees your post and decides that bitcoin is no longer viable and then I will be left with unsold items? Have a word with yourself.

i think we have a front row seat on the fall and collapse of bitcoin, and never thought i would say that , time to cancel my ebay orders for asic miners !!!!!!!
People got greedy by making asic miners too fast , i dont think satochi thought this would happen , this wasnt in his maths
Prove me wrong someone !!

If we get negative then problems follow
If we remain positive then good things happen.

Bitcoin is now an international economy not just a currency. Swings will happen. The trick is to be in the right place to take advantage of these situations.

well if the whole world has seen this then im doing something right, if your tired of reading these posts then maybe the writings on the wall maybe the consensus of opinion has out weighed the possitive and its what we ALL are starting to think, have a word with your self and pull ya head out the sand , we ALL loose out here m8

and by the way since im on this forum and im mining im just as much apart of this as anyone else i have invested interests as well thanks , BUT i wont convince myself about things that are not true. ive spent along time researching bitcoin the system the maths , and it dosnt look good i feel the small miner upto someone running 250Ghash has a problem ? if Thash system flood the market and i bought 10 of them as a small miner what dose that make me ? A small miner who has spent £10,000's who will loose his investment in a year when the 50Thash boxes are built and released , and then the 200Thash boxes have been released , talk about shooting ya self in the foot , AGAIN Prove me wrong with facts and maths not just your opinion please, im not being negative im just looking at this with out my rose tinted shades on , and im sorry for this

The same Bitcoin apocalypse predictions from the GPU times have proved wrong and now it is no different.
Just because the difficulty jumps too fast does not mean Bitcoin will die. The way you think, you would also say that when there are no more block rewards bitcoin will die, so why Satoshi did that? All this is not unexpected and this will not be the last huge difficulty jump, but we will have few years till the next one.

im talking about the jump in speed and tech, satochi said bit coin would take until 2140 to be complete ! its now something like 2040 becuase of the speed in which we mine , we are mining our way out of bitcoin, the change you speak of didnt have big company's producing massive power crunching machines, im saying the tech has shot us in the foot. im just trying to have a VALID opinion of the situation, so dont drag me to the wolves for it, once we can see whats really going on we can work together to find away we can continue , Problem Action Solution

Is this post fair ?
