wow - bad pool luck the last few days. .   Lots of 6+ hour rounds. .  Current round is 5+ and we had a 7 and a 9 in the last couple days.  Pool luck is 82, 98, 96.     I think the 30 day average got pulled down 7 points in the last 3 days. ..

Here's hoping it gets a bit better as these long rounds are killer. ..  

and as we speak - another 6:35 round (and still going).. .   argh.

I've been trying to mine through the cpu for days now with no luck and many headaches.
Depending on your CPU speed, you might find one share every hour or two if you are lucky, although with only a dual core processor even that is a big ask.  Even if you happen to find a share just before the block is solved (before the share's value has decayed), you will still earn nothing for it, as one share on its own is worth so little.  As Scyntech said, you need an ASIC to get anywhere these days.  Even a low-grade ASIC such as the Block Eruptor won't get you very far, as it will probably not cover the cost of the electricity used to run it, but it is a start and will produce visible results, so it can at least provide some amusement.

If you are determined to use the CPU, be sure to select the correct pool - slush's pool(IPv6/alt) - and use the extra flags -v -w128 -f1
and, of course, the correct user name and password.  Ticking the other CPU box is up to you - in the circumstances it will hardly make any real difference.

Guiminer should work with Slush, but it won't work with some pools, such as BTC Guild.

And current block is almost 7 hours and still running, the average in last 10 blocks is 4 hours.

Hi,

I've been trying to mine through the cpu for days now with no luck and many headaches.  Watched some youtube videos but they all have different methods, never fully explained, and with excruciating details, and none of them worked, the replies showed that most people were also unable to do it.  I was trying to mine doge coin through the cpu.  They are also not able to help those who have failed to process.

I've been told that you can't mine bitcoin through a cpu because it isn't a scrypt coin.  Will this allow it?

I followed the steps here and at least the main part of it looks good.  But there is an error code in the GUIminer box that says:  "ValueError: need more than 1 value to unpack."

Also the box mentions CPU Affinity and a check mark appears in the 0 box but none appears in the 1 box.

It says it's mining, but I've seen other replies in youtube and elsewhere where people seem to be mining but no results show.

I appreciate any help you can give me.

Thanks



The CPU is not going to net any coins any more. You need a mid - highend video card these days for alt-coins (Scrypt). Bitcoin (SHA-256) requires ASIC hardware to make any sort of dent. Take a few days to research through the forums here.


Can that statement be corrected - Quarks can be mined with a CPU - I have my kids mining them to get a bit of experience and learning - not worth a lot but the same knowledge is required

This is a good guide for cpu/gpu mining for GUIminer

The future ain't what it used to be, boys... When I got into this a year and a half ago, seven and eight hour block happened, but were an oddity... Now we seem to be getting one a day if not more... I'm sure the 24 hour block is out there, just biding it's time... I guess this is what it's come to, big business has discovered our playground, and there's money to be made on a grand scale... Too bad if the little guy that started it all gets shoved out in the cold. Damn, I'd just like for the hardware I've bought to pay for itsself... whine mode /off/...

Just another dust miner... Enquiring Gnomes want to Mine!

Sad.  we are at the half day mark for one stinking block.  we should almost get a pool as to when our pool will solve a block.  any takers ? 

how did our pool luck jump to 113% for the day ?
Pool luck (1 day, 7 days, 30 days): 113%

Just got my other 4 antminer U1s in.  All of them are now running.  Only issue is the cmd file I made to run the one didn't work for all of them.  I was thinking about over clocking them however I'm not sure where to go in bfgminer to do that, but I do know I can set it in the cmd file.  This is what the line looks like:

C:\Users\jason\Desktop\Bitcoin\bfgminer\bfgminer\bfgminer.exe -o stratum.bitcoin.cz:3333 -u (slush pool worker) -p (password) -S antminer:all --set-device antminer:clock=x0781

I'm not sure if something is wrong with this line or if I just didn't give bfgminer enough time to load up each of them.

Block Erupter Blades are still making some coin, well above the cost of running them. Not for much longer though with diff. shooting for the moon. But add in the cost of buying one at this point in time and you are guaranteed to lose money.

This current block round has a lot to live up to; I am not impressed with current time of nearly two hours.  The last block round lasted damn near 12 ...in yo face #21625 !
