I have mine set to stratum.bitcoin.cz:3333 on slush, works like a champ
stratum.bitcoin.cz:8333 05/03/2014 07:51:13, checking for stratum...

Can't you see the difference?
You are using port 8333, while the stratum port is 3333. As FalconFly suggested - use "other" and enter the pool details there.


Oops, yes you are right. My eyes ain't what they used to be and 3s are sort of 8-ish. Thanks, all, it works now.

Hey guys,

New to bitcoin mining. Joined slush's pool. This is just kinda something im playing with and dont expect to make any real money off of it. Currently running m gpu and getting about 75 Mhash/s. I dont really want to continue to use my GPU to mine. I was looking into ASICMiner Block Erupter 335 mh/s for around 25 dollars used. My question is are there any compatibility issues i will have with these or should it just be a plug in and mine type of deal? Like i said, i dont expect to make money just playing around, not trying to invest a couple grand into a unit to hash for me.

Thanks. Red

You should not have any compatibility issues. It is essentially plug and hash. But it depends on the software.

This - but shop around, you can get them for closer to $10 on eBay now. Don't expect to ever make your money back though, unless BTC go up crazily in price...

Just to add to that - you might do better with an Antminer U1 which work in the same way, but hash 6 times faster for around twice the price.

Also be aware that the minimum payout is 0.01BTC at slush's Pool, others have similar minimum payout limits. You'll have to check that before joining one with small hardware.

Whatever hardware you look into needs to be able to make this limit within a timeframe that is acceptable to you.
Otherwise, you'd have to buy more than one device, that is a cost question (since none of these devices can ever even remotely ROI, you increase your losses with each additional device; you need to decide if the mining adventure is worth the price).

Some examples of available, small miners if you started mining with them today (based on projected difficulty increases)

336MH/s Block Erupter :
March ~0.001 BTC in remaining month + April ~0.00074 BTC/month + May ~0.00042 BTC/month + Jun ~0.00024 BTC/month = ~0.0024 BTC in 4 months
That thing will never make it to minimum payout, if only one is used.

1.6GH/s Antminer U1 :
March ~0.0047 BTC in remaining month + April ~0.0035 BTC/month + May ~0.0020 BTC/month + Jun ~0.0012 BTC/month = ~0.0114 BTC in 4 months
That device will take about 3 months to reach 0.01 BTC, possibly won't generate another minimum payout due to diff increase.

2.0GH/s Antminer U2 :
March ~0.0059 BTC in remaining month + April ~0.0044 BTC/month + May ~0.0025 BTC/month + Jun ~0.0015 BTC/month = ~0.0143 BTC in 4 months
That device will take about 2 months to generate 0.01 BTC, likely will generate one more minimum payout due to diff increase.

4.5GH/s TwinFury :
March ~0.0131 BTC in remaining month + April ~0.0100 BTC/month + May ~0.0057 BTC/month + Jun ~0.0033 BTC/month = ~0.0321 BTC in 4 months
That device will take about 2.5 weeks to generate 0.01 BTC, still useful for a few more minimum payouts.

5.0GH/s BiFury :
March ~0.0146 BTC in remaining month + April ~0.0111 BTC/month + May ~0.0063 BTC/month + Jun ~0.0036 BTC/month = ~0.0356 BTC in 4 months
That device will take about 2 weeks to generate 0.01 BTC, still useful for a few more minimum payouts.

Yes you are right they are random and unexpected..... Also our hashrate is lower than the larger pools so high variation in earning is to be expected.

I do not mine though as i have moved on. Tongue

About six weeks ago there were a few people here dissing Slush and the pool. I ran an experiment and moved half of my hashing to BTC Guild. Almost exactly the same payout from both. Moving all back to Slush today.

I do have a small concern though, my payout on one block was 0. Where did you all say support questions should be posted for the pool, his Facebook account or something?

21760   2014-03-03 19:13:24   12:57:32   9099362387   78309   0.00000000   288773   25.12601933    confirmed

+1

+2
Support email answered in a few hours. I was offline for a period of time. I looked at my server and UPS logs and found I lost power for a few hours that I was not aware of.

But gee, I dunno about "Slush ripping us off" like all the whiners a month ago were saying. During my experiment when I reached the 0.01 payout on BTC Guild I was only at 0.0096 here on Slush. They knew best, for sure... ;->

Thanks for the reply yo...

I am looking for the backup server info now, if there is said info?

It was up for a minute just now but the error popped again...

Seems to be up and stable again for me - I restarted everything as well.

Fine here in the NYC area. My miners will reboot every 180 seconds if it doesn't have work to do and uptime on it is a couple of weeks.
