Biggest threat is from these 'unknowns' like https://blockchain.info/blocks/137.117.202.26 - seems to have 8PT+

That IP address is owned by Microsoft.

Just something to keep in mind, blockchain records the node that first relayed the transaction to them.  It doesn't really know who originated the transaction.   Blocks mined from known public pools are marked that way, usually because blockchain attempts to stay in connection with them, and secondly, because most pools inscribe an ID sequence in the block.

Hey everyone, noobie here. Decided to join BTC mining just for fun and not for making money (though it should be good too). I used to do a lot of Folding and SETI back in the days, and when I saw some "affordable" ASIC miners, I decided to jump in and got myself a measly 4Gh total (2 USB Antminer U2)

So some questions here, I am using MultiMiner using the ASIC (I disabled GPU option) and it says I have 2Gh on each (under "Current" column), with 1.5Gh (under "Effective ") and total Gh shows as "3.1". These values fluctuate as well but not too far from those (give or take .1 to .2 difference). However, whenever I check the webpage, my hashrate shows less than 1Gh (i.e 875Mh as of last 10 rounds). I have been running them for 24Hrs now, so I don't know how many rounds that is.

My specs:
Two(2) Antminer U2 (2Ghz each), plugged to USB hub. No errors ($30 each), not overclocked
Host PC is an old Centrino laptop, running 2Ghz CPU, Win7 2GB RAM, connected to net with old WiFi (802.11g)
I use Stratum protocol
MultiMiner software, calling BFGMiner with standard parameters on COM3 and COM4

* So is it normal I get less than 1Ghz for 10rounds?
* Is using an old laptop on old WiFi a bad idea? (I can watch Netflix HD movies without hiccup, but huge file transfer is a no-no)
* Should I run these ASICs 24x7? Or do they die fast if I do run it like that?
* Should I wait for a week to get my actual hashrate?
* Why do my score keeps getting reset?

Thank you and sorry for noob questions


You have to run them 24/7 its mandatory!!! if you dont want to loose shares and money off-course
If they fail they failed, I run my two U1 antminers since 15/2/2014 24/7 not noticed any difference I have also added a usb fan
and overclocked them a little.think that this is a non long term investment/fun so basically you will have them running until
they become non profitable...
For usb miners they are low consumpsion so running them for ever will not be much of an expense.
Old laptot is not bad idea WI-fi yes because they have lots of confirmations and many dupes can happen.
A week is much, in less than 24 hours your stats will built and you will have 4gh/s stable
usb animiners are so stable!!! and with 0 errors just excellent
after you understand what is happening think to investigate about pool luck...
I Used to run Seti on 10 computers at that time either at work and home

From Seti@home to Bitcoin+LTC and then Huh

Does the hub have an external power supply?  The USB miners are each likely to draw rather more power than can be supplied by USB 2.0 without being propped up, resulting in inadequate performance, premature failure of the USB built-in power source, or both.

I have found that the internet connection has the most effect on my hash rate; a fibre-optic connection is much faster than ADSL, which tends to have a lower rate at any time of day.  The hash rate falls away at peak usage times, particularly when the little kiddies arrive home from school and log in, and the bigger kiddies get home from work and start playing WoW.  In each case the difference is significant.

* Should I wait for a week to get my actual hashrate?
The hash rate reported by Slush is an estimate, based on work reported, and can take a while to stabilise after any interruption.  The true hash rate per device should be what you see in the BFGminer window.

That's correct.  It does look like that the person solving the block is the same person since the Coinbase signatures follow a similar pattern.  Not necessarily Microsoft of course since that owned IP is simply relaying, but seems rather odd that the same IP is relaying so many blocks.  Maybe it is a strategy for a big miner to hide their mining farm.  However, I don't know if it's possible to force your solved blocks to always be relayed first by the same IP.  Anyone have any information on this?

I think it's most likely just to be a very big mining farm: possibly somebody with access to his lab's super-computer, or vast wads of spare cash to throw at his paying hobby.  (How does Bill fill those long hours since he handed over the reins?)  Or, for the conspiracy theorists, it's the Illuminati's secret pool.  Grin

"Microsoft" mining is likely just someone using Microsoft's cloud infrastructure to run their private pool from. It is a good way to hide the actual source.

That makes the most sense!

It is yet another "China will ban bitcoin" rumor.   China is responsible for a significant part of the speculation market in bitcoin.

price of bitcoin crashing is a good thing,  "BIG"  miners will have to shut down until the price improves, at $135 the mongo outfit above just cannot be making money, (just like real world gold and diamond miners do) , which gives the little fish (like me) more chance to mine with their obsolete hardware. As in the real world, when the price improves, as in the real world anywhere from 1 to 15 years from now, they can start up again. 

WOW, and i thought my $1000 spent was risky.....

imho.

they will not go offline until they have a minus income without hardware costs. the only reason for them to switch it off are constant losses (btc price - energy costs).

They might sell the equipment off if they feel the currency will continue to decline and try and leave someone else holding the bag on unprofitable hardware.
