Slush's total hashrate says we should solve a block ever 4 hours and 41 minutes, given a large enough time frame and assuming constant difficulty. This has proven practically true until recently.

The average time to solve a block in the last four days (15th through the 18th) was 4 hours and 54 minutes. That's exactly in the range I would expect, despite our recent 25 hour sojourn. Let's not forget that we solved 8 blocks on the 15th. That is a good deal above average. Overtime, these things even out. You might be tempted to pool hop, in hopes to avoid the lows and cash in on the highs, but that is really just gambling and might seriously backfire, like it did to one person who posted on the previous page.

I prefer to stay in one spot where my returns are predictable over the coming months.

Bitcoin? Looks like fun.

TO SLUSH:

I hope you still check out this thread every now and then.

I have a few requests for the stats page. Can you add the following data points?:

  • Average time to solve a block
  • Average BTC rewarded per block
  • After the 25 or so on the main page, there could be a link to a CSV file that you update daily and contains the whole last month or three months or even a year.

Thanks. I appreciate your work for the pool and even more so for Bitcoin and its users.

Bitcoin? Looks like fun.

30 or more a week is about right. either way it averages out to like .01% more than the other bigger pools.

You see, now we have seven blocks in one day. It's all good. Pool hop if you want, but you will only maximize your profits by luck alone. Hanging in any single pool gives you predictability.

Not true. There's plenty of information about how to maximise income by hopping proportional and scored proportional pools.

That is so, but I doubt that most of our pool hoppers are sufficiently savvy for that kind of strategy: they appear simply to be chasing past success, like punters trying to bet on a known result.

Ah, well then. That's not pool hopping, that's just being silly.

Greetings All,

Forgive the noobness but I am new to all of this. It is my understanding that every time a new block is found all of the workers in my account switch to the new block. Is that correct? or do they continue to mine shares from all open blocks? Is it possible to stay mining the same block until its confirmed? Whats the best way to manage my miners?

Thanks everyone!

There is no such thing as "all open blocks". Once a block is found all miners move on to the next one. I'm not sure what you mean by "manage my miners", but i suspect is there isn't a way.

Okay... thats the noobness showing through! lol.

What I mean is (and maybe I'm getting this all confused) is if you look at the statistics page it usually shows several blocks that are being validated and have X number of confirmations left. Is that what my miners are hashing on or do I have that all wrong?

I think I am just misunderstanding how it all works...

You are pretty much misunderstanding. Confirmation numbers have to do with Orphans and such. Once a block is found it is announced to the network. when a block is built off of that one, that is one confirmation. When a block is built off that one, that  is a second confirmation. it is a chain.

if two miners find the same block before either is confirmed, the one with the most confirmations wins and the other is orphaned. Pools usually consider 100 - 120 confirmations as confirmed beyond a doubt. Merchants are usually content with about 6. That would be 6 blocks found after the block that their transaction is in.

Every block has part of the previous block as input.

I think that the bitcoin protocol enforces the rule that a mined block can't be spent until after 100 confirmations, that is, a transaction using the output from a newly mined block isn't valid if the number of confirmations is less than 100.   

So, a mining pool can't pay for your efforts before the 100 confirmations, unless they extend credit.

Looks like the pool jumpers are back after a recent run of luck.

To those of you on here my sincerest of wishes for your luck along with success in chasing farts in the wind.
