liston i went to bed at 2:00am and woke up at 12:00 pm.  I am in the bedroom getting dressed thinking about the situation at hand.

I hath earned more in this period of time than I hath in a day with mt.slush.

Based on this information I am looking after number 1 and decideth to stick on BTC guild until i die.

It hath given me more information than any other pool in the world.  The blocs are steady and frequent and stabol i cannot ask for more than that.

BTC dose not mess me about and in return i do not mess it about i respect it all.

Good luck, Sir.

Over the last 30 days I have received EXACTLY what I expected from Slush in terms of rewards. Yes, some days have been great, and some truly awful. But that's the game.

Enjoy elsewhere, but do try not to come to a forum for a pool you are no longer using and troll.

It's a waste of your valuable time. Moan on their forum, instead Smiley

Don't you get it ?  These are the people who jump back when luck swings.. Otherwise you're right they have little need to stick around... The sit in other pools collecting smaller payouts, and swing back to the bigger payouts when things get resolved..

Btw , I'm starting to doubt our published hash rate on the front stats page and thinking that because our hash rate has not gained like other pools as the difficulty has increased we have maybe been left out in the cold..

Just a theory..

I straddle both pools pretty equally. . .  In the last 10 days, BTC-g has paid more than slush exactly 6 times vs 4 for slush. .    That being said, on two of those days slush's pool paid almost 75% more than the BTC-g average - so the score is essentially 6 vs 5.5.  It's that close, even with the bad run of "luck". . .  

BTC has much less variance over it obviously so its payouts tend to be fairly stable.   Slush has a lot more variance. .  There are days when slush's pool can pay double what btc-g pays, and there are days where slush can pay 1/2 of what btc-g pays. .   But its very very close between the two. .   just the variance is greater with one vs the other. .  On a good run of probability/luck with slush, it'll easily outpace the other pools.  unfortunately its been on a rather bad run recently.

and to give a better indication. .  BTC guild hasn't found a block in 1.5 hours now.  Since they have 6.5x the hashing power of slush - that equates to an 9 hour block for them. . .  Granted its not a 22 hour block just yet, but similar concept.

Shouldnt the Difficulty level out seeing as at the point were it gets so hard no one will bother mining and how would bitcoin work when no computers are there for the transactions?

I bet this is a noob question, but hey im a noob.

Still mining on Slush with just 12.5 GH/s I had 240 GH/s going but sold miners just a few days ago. Cheesy Scrypt mining FTW

Perhaps you have Slush as the fallback, and it's switched over for some reason?

or check that you have actually committed your changes to the configuration. . .

BTC is currently bageling the last 2.5 hours which is equivalent to a 16.5 hour round so far here. ..
 
I find the break even point between the two is somewhere between 3 to 4 blocks.  If slush solves more than 4 blocks in a 24 hour period, its payout is greater than BTC-G. .   If its less than 4 blocks, then BTC-G pays more. .     BTC doesn't vary much over any 24 hour period because of its size, but slush can solve 2 blocks or 9 blocks.  So when its a large number of blocks, Slush wins big. .   but generally they are very close to each other in terms of payout performance.

Thats what I thought to and checked all 4 antminers...I have no failovers pointed at Slush currently, but it is showing my hash rate at 400gh/s currently..I switched over about 2 days ago and all blocks I worked on have been confirmed...but just odd showing me giving shares I wont complain lol

**I applied the configs and such, I even gave each antminer a reboot(before reading your comment). I thought it was some gear I got rid of awhile back maybe they didnt change the credentials,but never 400gigahash worth

can somebody do some magic so we can have better luck?

As long as it's not "Magic The Gathering Online Exchange" . We don't need any more of that!

I'd like to know also. I've been trying to figure it out but can't get connections - always get an error. I like the new btc scryptguild site but......

Some day will get it. Will leave 100 ghs on slush though as always have.

It seems some people start to get it - our hashrate increases after some bad luck instead of when we got a good luck ... I hope this will help crossing the 900TH line and show that, it's not a limit in any way, so here is a prediction:
 This round (currently 1h 8min) will last between 1h 30min and 2h 15min
 There will be at least 2 rounds below 3h in the next ~14h (by 13:00 UTC)

Scrypt mining is different from SHA-256 mining in that scrypt uses a different algorithm to calculate blocks. Hashing wise scrypt is one-thousandth to SHA-256.

Example in Bitcoin, you have 10 GH/s of hashing power in Litecoin, scrypt is 10 MH/s or a one-thousandth of Bitcoin, although the proportion earn of money from bitcoin to litecoin is quite different.

Another example
==========
My Litecoin rigs are hashing 19.3 MH/s I earn $83.27 per day before electric bill. (That will change)

A bitcoin miner will need about 1,150 GH/s (1.150 TH/s) to earn the same amount before electric bill. (Of course that will change too later)

I am using GPUs for Litecoin mining and Bitcoin are ASIC territory obviously.

Bitcoin ASIC can only mine bitcoin and other SHA-256 coins and not scrypt coins.

There are scrypt mining ASIC but they are not worth the purchase now, cheaper to buy GPUs and GPU has a resale value compare to ASICs.

I won't ask for donations but I will ask for help. And I won't give donations but I will help if I can.

If people stopped mining, then difficulty level would go down.  This is not likely, as there is current investment in new mining equipment and network hash rate is more likely to keep increasing rather than the other way round.  Connections to the network for transactions do not have to be associated with mining, for example if you set up a wallet and bought some BTC without any mining involved.

Oh My!

It has probably doubled since this post hehe


This pool really has 850 TH ?
Is 850 TH on the top end or is their a larger pool ?
At the time of writing it's up to 869 TH/s.  It did top 900 before we had a run of bad luck and some people ran away.

Some pools are much bigger: BTCguild is currently 5206 TH/s, and other are larger still, but I CBA to look them up.  Cool
