Cluster performance going down
From 440 to 340, why?


Probably because many workers are no longer accounted...

Maybe there was a network problem?

Its now back up to 450

Just a quarter of an hour after the OP (or just two posts thereafter, if you prefer):
https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=1976.msg3876707#msg3876707
It's back for about 30 hours already... :-)

is there a threshold to the difficulty level or will it continue to rise until all have been given out via lottery? crazy that I would need about 60GHash/sec to get the return I was getting with 0.25-0.5GHash/sec just 6 months ago.. would take 16 months just to break even at a 1btc=1k USD rate. if the difficulty keeps rising at the rate it is now, would we need 120x more powerful hardware in 6 months again too?


conclusion: asics currently overpriced most likely due to the volatile btc value from retailers accepting btc

The hardware will be 10 times (not 120x but still quite an increase) more powerful, so if you want to keep your income steady, you will need a recent hardware ... do you still use your old 386 or even Pentium I (if you are old enough to ever had one of course)?

recycled/donated anything that old ages ago.. mostly Pentium4's and PentiumD's and the AthlonX2 (or whatever the equiv at the time was) lying around my garage.

hd 4870 in one of them pulling 70, a gtx480 in a cpl year old gaming rig pulling 130, and a gts250 pulling 30 in the few years-older rig addition to a cpu mining botnet I have running at night with some client computers. nothing crazy but it was getting me 0.01 per day last summer until I tried to deal with mtgox and lost my morale with btc's when I couldn't get my hands on any USD.. then tried another broker recently when the price spiked and wanted to get back into the game.


looks like you can get about 70GH/sec for about 3.5k if you buy 2 cubes full of blades chalked full of block erupter miners... at this point you need to drop long paper into a 1,200GH/sec miner or go home.

You can probably get a 14oGH/150GH KNC rig for that on ebay, I've seen a few go for that ballpark lately. Mine manages just under 1BTC a week after the latest diff increase, down from just over. So If I bought it today it would probably more than break even. It did that weeks ago though. All jam now until it costs more to power than it mines.
In 3-6 months the 20nm rigs will be out, hashing at roughly 3TH for 13k a pop, power required will be much more, 2kw range ...so it's getting industrial now.
The most important thing to consider isn't difficulty or power or speed though. It's delivery. IF you're paying that kind of money you'll get a rig with a pretty short sweet spot where it makes the lion's share of it's income, and if it's like BFL...you'll miss that boat. You won't be hashing until its not worth it. Buying a big ASIC is very risky. A month lost hashing while others have been delivered to drive the difficulty up is a killer. Lose you serious income.

This is the precise reason I could never purchase a Neptune, even at the special discounted pricing. At best we're looking 3 months away, at worst 6 months. Even 3 months away.. will 4 or 5TH be enough to break even? It's sketchy at best, and that's hoping BTC value rises.

Wait until the diff is 300 trillion and the next block reduction hits...

Minimum payout is now at .05.  Some places in the knowledge base refer to it being .01, but that was changed a long time ago I believe.

It's based on luck, but Slush's pool averages around 12 blocks per day so here's the math:

Your Hash Rate/Pool's Hash Rate * blocks per day * 25 which is current payout per block *.98 after Slush takes 2%.  There will be some variation since the payout per block doesn't include transaction fees.

So if you were hashing at 100Gh/s you could expect 0.062 Bitcoin per day based upon the hash rate at the current time I checked.

100/474653.331 * 12 * 25 * .98 = .062

Thanks mate.
Would you say it makes more sense to go with BTC Guild?


Also my Estimated reward at slush pool are changing all the time.
Sometimes I will get 0.000231 BTC, sometimes i will get 0.000192. is that normal?

It's normal since Slush uses a method where the latest shares submitted are more valuable than earlier shares.  If you have disconnects or pool hop, you'll see wide swings in earnings.
