Anyone else getting many unexpected queue result errors after approx 1/2 hour of mining?  It's been constant these past few days. Sad  Trying to determine if it's software or server issue.  Due to new version of pool being implemented?

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?

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 don't think satochi thought this would happen , this wasn't in his maths
Prove me wrong someone !!

Your first problem is using eBay to buy a bitcoin miner. The second is I have no clue what you're arguing, that bitcoin is going to die due to asic, that asic is 'cheating', or that the growth curve right now looks any different from the one 3 years ago where using gpus was discovered

Ok so there's a lot wrong with your response and i have no time to point it out , also cant you see the difference between a statement or an argument , i cant respond to what you wrote as you made no sense. i dont mean to be offensive but your kinda short sighted, using the argument of old dose not apply here, was the same situation relevant back then as is now ? No would be the answer!  im sorry but alot of people on this forum dont know what there talking about they just post there un educated responses , im not interested in peoples opinion im looking for information,

my issue is that the times now are not the same as before , forget the jump from CPU to GPU forget the hassle with MtGox , there in the past. TODAY there are new challenges with the network . i don't see it being sustainable in the near future for individuals like us and so far no one has given me a response to prove otherwise!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Or are all these issues with slush pool!!!!!  


i didn't say anything about cheating, i didn't say i was arguing , i didn't say anything about ebay being the problem , you stated that not me ...........


In my opinion, we are quickly approaching the point where the upwards climb will appear to stabilizre a bit. a few more designs will come to the table, low-efficiency devices will stop being used (avalon, BFL), and we wont move past 28nm in the near future. Basically, I think that if you are using a calculator like the genesis block, the point where a 1w/GH miner starts 'losing money' is the point where we will stop the climb and become much more linear as systems turn off, switch to altcoins, etc

Thanks for that information i understand what your saying and you may have a valid point.

[Good vibes mode]

Look on the bright side, the pool is doing better and better today.

First a 16 hrs block
next a 6 hrs
now 2.5 hrs
next Huh

Do the math (maths?)

[/Good vibes mode]

@ Trongersol : Blades are happy 99.5% efficiency on Slush.... uptime 9 days now.


This is known as "regression to the mean" (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Regression_toward_the_mean). The next value after an extreme value is likely to be closer to the mean value. Mean block time for Slush is (about) 2.5 hours.

How many BFL miners are here? anyone care to share their experiences running them?

I have some 5ghs miners but I am very disappointed with them. I almost have downtime every single day due to various errors. In contrast I haven't got downtime with any of my ASICMINER HW (USBs and blades) eventhough I run those for a lot longer than the bloody BFLs.

BFL customer service is pretty much useless and at this point it doesn't even worth to send them back.

Sorry to hear you are having problems with your BFL stuff. I am running two 5GH/s miners. One flashed to 8.1GH/s and the other putting out 7.3GH/s, also one Single running at an average of 59 GH/s. I have not had any problems with any of my BFL gear. I am not a fan of the company but I like the gear so far.

I also run 3 blades and some usb's from asic miner and a small kit from bitfury. All have been trouble free except the bitfury ate its rpi the other day. Running it on back up now.

What kind of errors are you getting from your 5GH/s miners?  Are you using Cgminer or BFGminer?

Regards,

Man, I wish I could change my avatar!

I'm running them on win7 /w bfgminer now. Basically they generate only rejects after a random number of shares submitted (usually after 150K, sometimes sooner), other times the software crashes or reports dead miners. Upon restart they work ok again. I have tried cgminer, but it was a lot worse than BFGminer (3.2.1 as of now), got ~30% reject with every version.

The temps are fine, they are usually at 38C, the max is 40C.

I'm at a loss. I would have just suggested to switch software, you did that. My Jals have been up to 49c with no errors. This is a curious situation. Hopefully someone with more knowledge than me can help you.

Thanks for trying to help. The funny thing is that BFL support is completely useless. they stopped responding after switching software didn't help much.

Is there a decent guide out there for reflashing them? I would give that a try, I might try to lower the performance a bit and see what effect does that have.

Do they run ok on their own?

also have you tried swapping usb cables?
and are you plugging directly into mobo or powered hub?

They connect directly to the host.

Yes, I have tried a known good PSU, still the same problem also swapped USB cables to new ones.

Thanks. I ran them together so far, I'll try separating them.

It's good to have such a nice community willing to help!  Smiley

I am getting the same thing happening to me desired_username.  Usually unexpected queue results.  Just downloaded bfgminer 3.2.1 and hoping this makes a difference.  Have a BFL 30 GH/s.  Just started happening a few days ago also.

Hi,
Is there a way to change the pool settings, or a command line when using the Stratum Proxy? I have an Asicminer Blade v2, and it restarts due to the work not being fast enough, so it tops out at an average of 6 - 7 g/hs. But when I use a different pool that uses the old get work protocol, I max at 10.5 g/hs. Any ideas would be great.

as it is, we're like about 6.6% of the whole pie. Must the Gods deny us even that?

The share of the pie is also time dependent. It is now about that number for the last 2016 blocks, according to http://blockorigin.pfoe.be/chart.php. This number of blocks takes about two weeks to find when difficulty doesn't change. With the current stable difficulty increase of about 31 % / period, it takes about 11 days. So the 6.6 % is an average over this period. For the period of last 24 hours, it's now about 7 %, but yesterday it has been moving around 2.5% only.

yes, shares dropping , means the tech on sale today is worth a little less money than it took to build them , i feel sorry for people with pre orders , the jump in speed is relentless , where will it stop? ive noticed the price on BFL kit dropping , a 5.5Ghash BFL box couldnt even get £300 on ebay the other day !!!!

We're gaining hashing power quickly because BTC Guild is under DDoS attack and last I checked they were down to 150,000GHs - so all that power is spreading to other pools that people have setup as backups.

Now, does anyone know why our site is down?

Slush pool site is down; is mining affected?  I can't tell because I monitor through Slush's API and website.
