Cynthia, you do realize the Monarch does not exist...right ?  it's the Neptune we all need to worry about.  right now there is a price war with Avalon & Antminer.  They are the enemy currently.  i paid too much for my mining equipment, I had to switch pools for a bit, I am now earning again.  4 blocks in 3 days, that is just super retarded.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well I hope you are right but I personally don't think so after talking to the people at Butterfly Labs on the phone two days ago. They are real close to starting their hosting service also, which is set by default to the Eclipse pool. Their service will be offering 100 GH/s for about 1/2 of what you paid for a 50 GH/s box if I'm understanding what boxes you have. I may be wrong on your boxes though.  Of course you need to understand their year end contract you will need to sign as you will be paying for one of the Monarch cards.

The Monarch card is coming sooner or later and I'm really afraid it is going to be sooner than later and it will be our downfall unless we change also. Hope they don't release it for years.

I am sorry you paid to much for your miners, maybe I did too - not sure, but we all know the HIGH RISK we are taking in this btc thing. This btc is a bubble that WILL BURST one way or another and we are ALL just riding it hoping to make something before it bursts or we are forced out, lets not kid ourselves about that. We are all in an extremely HIGH RISK business mining btc and we better be ready to accept that risk.

We are being forced out by greed and I mean BIG BIG money greed - like multi-million dollar system greed. Sure I may be a n00b in this and maybe can't talk the tech talk stuff but I am aware what is going on.

As for Slush pool speed yes I agree it is extremely slow right now and something IS WRONG - but like I said I have checked my other 2 accounts and they also are having slow issues. Enough so that one made a posting calling it a SEVERE SLOWDOWN but they have no idea why.

If you are on a pool making money could you tell me where. I have 100 GH/s still to put online and would like to know where to go.

And I just checked the pool records and it has been 30 blocks in the last 3 days not 4. But yes, I would like to make more, any ideas where.

I think some of you may be taking my attempt at making some of my posts here light hearted to help keep the spirit up as a sign of stupidity or whatever - I wouldn't make that mistake. I know why I am into btc mining, what the ultimate outcome has to be, and I want to make as much as I can while I can but I also want to have fun doing it.

If you are not accepting btc mining as the HIGH RISK operation it is then I can only feel sorry for you. Maybe you didn't understand or didn't research enough before you got involved. But things in the btc world are NOT the same as they were even 6 months ago. It is an ever changing system and will never be stable by its very nature and the greed of people in general.

So it's back to playing my online game of WOW for me. Grin


I don't mean to sound like a jerk but please bone up on economics, perceiving stupidity has very little to do with your jovial tone.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ooooooooooook. Economics, bone up, perceiving yuk! None of you sound like jerk's to me, it's just an opinion - like mine.  I have no problem with that. Like I have no problem with the gentleman who asked me if I believed the Monarch card was real. I'm grown up and understand what's going on and what money I'm spending in this venture is my at risk money. Has nothing to do with pool speed I know but since it seems to be spread throughout the btc pool universe what does it have to do with the Slush pool, since they can't do much about it either.

But I would like to know where to put my extra 100 GH/s since I can't seem to get it to work 2 or 3 pools on one machine. I do have another computer coming in the next few days so guess that will solve my problem. Roll Eyes

There's something going on with the pool!!!

I'm getting more rejected shares than accepted right now and it's only on slush's pool that this is happening.


I'm wondering if everyone is experiencing this, and that is why we are getting such shit block times right now.

What other pools are you on if I may ask and how are they doing in this pool slow down. I noticed BTC Guild has paid over 30 blocks just today so far but not sure what a slower miner like me would be getting there since they have approx. 30,000 miners on right now.

Yeah they are stale shares, which translate into rejected...

I have a fall back onto Ghash.io, and then my backup backup pool is Ozco.in (I do it fur the lulz)

I have barely made anything from this pool in the past week.

I don't have that much hardware, but i'm seeing almost %75 less BTC being generated compared to other pools that I try.

Well it would seem that a restart on BFGminer has fixed the problem, but I've never had to do that before...

Hmmm... My big issue with revenue decline comes from the fact we aren't solving any blocks. I haven't done any digging, but some posts have said other pools are slow too...

If the entire network is actually slow that means perhaps the last difficulty adjustment was too aggressive. From what I understand, difficulty (technically) can move up or down, whatever it takes, with the end goal being that the next 2016 blocks take 2 weeks to mine. Not saying the last difficulty increase was flawed or too aggressive, but if this is a network-wide issue we should expect to see it reflected somehow in the next difficulty calculation.

Makes sense but they don't seem to know why this is happening and here is an exact copy off the BTC Guild site:

A block was paid out twice earlier today due to a severe slowdown in the bitcoin daemon used to scan for new blocks. This block has been removed from the payment history and the shifts since it was already paid once. Rewards will have decreased by 1 block for all users that were active between shifts 14027 and 14036. This should not materially affect overall rewards for any users. If a user's balance has gone negative as a result, it is highly unlikely their balance will remain negative by the time those shifts are closed due to additional block solves.

The exact reason the bitcoin daemon became so slow is not known, but secondary checks have been put into place to prevent a double payment from happening in the future.

That news post isn't related to other pools, it was a BTC Guild specific issue.  The problem was figured out (wallet file was too fragmented causing it to respond extremely slowly whenever new blocks are found on the network).  I thought that type of slowdown had been mostly corrected in bitcoin 0.8, but was wrong.

Also Bitminter and Eligius are reporting long rounds in the last 48h

What is this??? The end of the world???

By now I'll move 60% of my hashing power to a multipool for alt coins, and wait until the storm passes.

I'm not sure what you consider a slowdown, according to http://bitcoinwisdom.com/bitcoin/difficulty blocks are being found every 8.4 minutes. that is faster than the every 10 minutes that it is supposed to be. I've been on Slush since May '13. Slush used to be roughly 10% of the world's hashrate. Now, it is less than 5% so it should take longer to find blocks. as your hashrate goes down the Variance goes up. this means that we will see more very long blocks and very short blocks..

Lord, 731 terahashes, and we're only 5%??? Who is getting all the blocks, then? 'Cos we sure ain't. Surely someone out there is compiling a list of pools, with the best (ie. most profitable) pools at the top. I'm partial to CZ, but at some point, and as I aquire more miners, I'll probably switch over and try out a few other pools. Anyone know of such a list?
