somethign wrong with 21494, that should be .0037ish
taking my shares for 4 hours 2x it, 2x361034 = 722068
+ 31minute shares 50011+722068 = 772079. So my shares are Dead on for 21494. .0030x is wrong.

Is there any difference in earning on different pools, I ask because I ran on ghash.io for about 4 hours and based on reward from that i would be about 1/3 down on what I get here.

Maybe I didn't leave it long enough I don't know but is there a way to tell if a pool will be a better earner ?


Found this useful? Want to tip me?

Ghash doesn't have fees so you should do 2 percent better. But 4 hours is insignificant. Try running for a week on each and comparing. Slush is a small pool so there will be more variance in luck and pay out.  think i read somewhere that Ghash charges for withdrawls? if so, there is the fee. All pools should earn about the same for a given hash rate over time.

Assuming that your miner was submitting at a steady rate, and the pool hashing rate was constant, your reward for 21494 should have been about 0.003420513
  (25*771770/5527931702*98%), the reward of 0.00304283 is about 9% lower.  I examined my reward for this block and it was also about 9% lower.  It was quite a long block, and short term fluctuations in the pool and individual miners could be the cause.  You could raise a ticket on this if it is of concern.
BTW, I checked about 1400 history blocks, and found that my average reward was about 3% higher than the proportional value based on shares relatively to the total shares (with some fairly large fluctuations too).  You need to consider Slush's unique exponential algorithm and variations at both your side and the overall pool hash rate.  I am not inclined to raise the reward of this block as an issue.

To all the haters and flamers out there about how; slush less than this and xx is better then xx.... stfu!


This pool has the best support out of any pools I have been with, and i've been with more pools than a hooker can make a career out of!


I submitted a ticket to the support staff back when the most recent blocks were not showing proper rewards, and this was at like 3:00am PST
I got a response back within 10 minutes assuring me not to be concerned, then poof what was said was done and I was credited!

In my honest opinion, if one does not simply mine with Slush, one does not have access to the resources and collaboration as said other pools!


My recent problems were a lot of stale shares but it looked like the amount of stales that happened when we were all on getwork, which is fixed now and we are all back being happy!


Props go out the slush support team, and everyone else that makes this pool possible!




Keep Calm and Mine on Everyone!

Keep Calm and Mine on Everyone!

At the heart of a free-market is the right for people to voice opinions and freely mine wherever they want. I raise your "STFU" and "keep calm and mine on" Communist bullshit with a "Go screw dummy"- get a clue about what you are encouraging, stop and think about it, really think. The SIMPLE fact is that because of the voiced opinions us miners have a way to hold pool operators accountable and we have a method to inform each other by sharing knowledge and opinions here. I think it's silly and sad that people like you want others to bury their head in the sand rather than freely share opinions. Glad our luck turned around for now, but this is the place I hope to come for unfiltered user feedback, not blind faith and ass kissing propaganda. Long live Slush, until/unless there is a "better" pool because we are all free to vote with our hardware, and hopefully we encourage criticism here to share all the necessary information if/when things point towards our pool having a disadvantage. We all pay a fee, and nobody gives me "props" for simply doing my job, gotta go above and beyond for that and from what I know there's no real level of personalized service, just widespread technical issues, silence, and sudden fixes that (usually) happen after a few days.

Your suggestion to shut people up is a concept that kills the transparency needed for a competitive market, anyone that has studied econ 101 knows that competition drives innovation and the end result is the best solution for the market. A bunch of forums with a "STFU and keep mining" policy would be a world full of shitty pools with no accountability for their actions. It's a forum, free speech is essential. I'll say it would be nice for newbie questions to remain in the newbie forum, but if someone has a problem with this pool bet your ass I want to know about it, and if there's another pool without said problem I want to know about that too. If not for that, why else would we be here? Bad luck therapy and good luck "atta boys"? Even if we are delighted with the service it is through an open platform that encouraged criticism that we can ensure the quality is maintained, or improved when needed. Even knowing that you tried other pools without excessive commitment is valuable information, it's just the whole "stfu" thing where you are crossing a line that nobody here should ever strive for.

I can't let this one slide by - you know me.

Who the heck are you to mention the right to voice free opinions and the need to freely share opinions over and over in a post directed at someone who is doing that exact thing! At the same time you FLAME his post with your fancy (in your opinion) Economic talk. Talking about communist BS, you have found your own elegant way of trying to SHUT PEOPLE UP who are doing the exact thing you say is so essential for a pool. Openly expressing their opinion.

You seem to like to use your Economic hammer on people to intimidate them into not posting what they feel and bend them more into your way of thinking. Now there's true Communism in the works.

And your attempt at intimidating n00bs and wanting/wishing they would be forced into one small area IS TRUE COMMUNIST THINKING! You believe in the class system don't you. Your perceived class and then there will be the rest of us in the other class, I see!

Who are you mister high all mighty to make such comments and still want people to openly post. You want them to only post what you think is relevant - is that it! Again sounds like Communism to me.

YOU crossed the line with your communist BS remarks. This IS AMERICA dam-it (at least I am in America) and he can post whatever he wants and shouldn't feel the need to run and hide from your flaming after he does. If you think this will stop n00bs from posting you're wrong, I still posted.

And yes I also have a college degree (thought I'd mention that since you seem to indirectly refer to your high level of education as if it means something). I also took Economics in school but I'm not trying to use it to shut others up because they don't believe like I do or trying to force others off the forum into a small back room because I don't like what they are saying.

It may not have been elegant but I understood what he meant sorry you couldn't.

So do you Really Want To Dance with me now? Is that your way? Bring it on! I have my opinion and my way of expressing it and no one, I MEAN NO ONE, will ever change that except maybe Slush forcing me off this forum himself.

Don't talk Communist BS to me, ever, MR J_Dubbs!

Now lets see how elegant you are or maybe not even elegant this time, when you flame me for expressing my FREE OPEN OPINION on this site.

And YES go on mining my Slush friends.

I don't know why but this whole thing made me laugh, good stuff, and thanks for brightening up my day. We have a mix of talents here, some techie folks and others into markets and trading strategy. I've got no response for you and I enjoyed your crit, but I took it literally when he wrote "STFU" because there was no indication of sarcasm there. If you qualify "stfu complainers" as an 'opinion', well okay go ahead with that, but I see it is a statement trying to stifle criticism of the pool. All criticism, even yours about me or my posting, even bitching about pool luck and coincidental timing of pool maintenance, should be welcome here. One thing we can perhaps agree on is wishing good luck to all miners.

I'm not a pro but just a cursory review the GUI miner might be the problem, many seem to dislike this software. Why are you using it? What are you mining with?

Regardless of what you are mining with I'm pretty sure you'll either want bfgminer or Slush's proxy software, almost certain GUI Miner is very problematic.

Hi everyone,

total beginner here, I read the guide, registered on this pool to get up and runinng, but I have a problem.

I use GUIMiner on my Windows PC, with these parameters :

host : stratum.bitcoin.cz
port : 3333

login and password for the worker (got it from the pool website, no it's not my website login)

start de bitcoin original client in server mode, and then clic on mining, here is the console :

2014-01-20 18:12:56: Running command: poclbm.exe login:password@stratum.bitcoin.cz:3333 --device=0 --platform=0 --verbose -r1

and then nothing, when I check the summary tab I have a "Connection problem" status...

please help anyone !

I'm not a pro but just a cursory review the GUI miner might be the problem, many seem to dislike this software. Why are you using it? What are you mining with?

Regardless of what you are mining with I'm pretty sure you'll either want bfgminer or Slush's proxy software, almost certain GUI Miner is very problematic.

I agree with this totally. I had to switch to bgfminer and after I did everything worked fine. But you need to beware that some anti-virus programs will think bfgminer is a virus. I had to totally remove Norton from my system before it worked for me.

Is there any difference in earning on different pools, I ask because I ran on ghash.io for about 4 hours and based on reward from that i would be about 1/3 down on what I get here.

Maybe I didn't leave it long enough I don't know but is there a way to tell if a pool will be a better earner ?



For those interested. I have been running the same GH/s systems on Slush and on BTC Guild. BTC Guild pays out more often but lower amounts, sort of fun to watch. Anyway. Right now Slush has beat BTC Guild so far overall in past 72 hours by almost .01 so for what ever it is worth.

Ah I hear the Lynch King calling me back to WOW. Cya

I have tested 50BTC, Elygius, triplemining and slush pool.
And I prefer the slush pool.

these are the reward I had today:

Hi sebmex, and welcome to the forum.

What device is shown on the worker tab?  The command parameters suggest that you are trying to mine with a CPU, which would mean you will earn virtually nothing, and nowhere near the cost of the extra electricity used.  (This would not explain the connection problem, though.)

Just remember the pool will always go up and down, always. Slush is not stealing anything from anyone you can go see what block numbers have been mined and by who and check this against the Slush pool numbers and they will match exactly.

We have bad period and good ones, so do other pools. That's just the way it is. Don't try to over think any pool because you probably will loose trying to outguess what will or could happen.

And he is right the pool seems better now.Grin

How do you tell what you have done so far in the pool?



Also, it seemed that everything was fine yesterday and all of a sudden I am getting errors:

Are you using a graphics card for mining? Seems like it GeForce GTS 250, I use my GF graphics card for testing because so slow won't make anything just have fun. I use cgminer when I use my GF graphics card. Navidia does not use an AMD based processor or chip or whatever it is.

I have to use both log in addresses, sometimes I can't connect using stratum.ditcoin.cz:3333 etc and have to use the http://api.bitcoin.cz:8332 which then defaults to the stratum.bitcoin.cz:3333 somehow.

Oh and I had to use cgminer version 3.7.2. For some reason newer versions wouldn't work with my Navidia card, maybe just my system not sure.

Hope this helps some, from one n00b to another. LOL

True, maybe, BUT... The pattern I see is we have maintenance issues and then a period of horrible luck, and when we aren't solving blocks someone else is. Sometimes I think the pool 'appears' to be working fine, but behind the scenes perhaps it is not, either way we usually don't get much feedback on what is happening. I'd love to see a time-series plot of our daily blocks found overlaid with the maintenance issues or tickets submitted. My hypothesis is during times of high issues reported that our blocks solved dips significantly. From what I see it's always during and after periods with technical issues that we have horrible "luck", which really makes the 'luck' value something other than pure.

Just because the Quality Inn sign says "Quality" does not mean it is, labels don't tell the whole story and often over-simplify the truth.

Yes this pool is slow to openly address issues, if at all. I agree there, but don't know about the other things mentioned cause way over my head. LOL

And as for maintenance issues I did notice site was down again today for awhile, or was it late yesterday, anyway, then luck changed instantly. Go figure.

I do like that BTC Guild pool provides so much info but I still seem to be making more here by small amount. That could all change again though.
