Slush pool is doing great considering the recent difficulty and hash power increases!

And now lots of luck hunters have gone, our find rate will increase - always happens...

Indeed. I tend to "set it and forget it" when it comes to my BTC miners and Slush pool.
So long as they are still mining and being reported on my dashboard, I am cool.

Every pool has their luck, whether good/bad/indifferent, lol.
Patience is a BIG part of mining, even when mining gold, diamonds and platinum...takes time to uncover those rich veins hidden by layers upon layers of rock!

That's my approach now as well.  Never expected to become obsessed or spend so much time on this.  Time is money as well so I need to back off.  Since I started with 30G, moved to 180, now I have 1.2T I am in the honeymoon phase of actually scoring "big" (haha).

Haha good luck man.  I had much lweor hash last year and I used to make like .01 a day but then it started dwindling to like .0001 per night and then it basically became too frustrating and useless to mine so I gave up.  Just know that your hardware is going to slowly become obsolete and the difficulty will keep going up so don't think the profits will last forever.  Good luck!

     As with your regular job, you have to continually grow your capabilities or the office will quickly outpace your salary, with mining you need to continually grow your equipment (read “hash rate”) or the pool will quickly outpace your rewards. If you sit with the same equipment you had last year at this time, you find yourself wondering if your electric bill will get paid. Slush has grown from 850 TH/s to topping 5 PH/s since February. The only way to keep your reward constant is to grow your mining farm at the same rate. If you had 10 GH/s capability in February, you would need 60 GH/s today just to get the same reward. The only way to grow your earnings is to outpace the pool. If you wanted ten times the February reward, today you would need 600 GH/s mining capability. It’s easy math, and it just requires you to justify the cash outlay for the equipment, but like gambling, you don’t want to put any more money into the venture than you can honestly afford. Fortunately, the equipment manufacturers are making the possibility of faster mining equipment more financially feasibly.

I hear ya, haven't seen my electric bill yet but getting about .006 a day so this may end up as a hobby, thanks, as I could easily get wrapped up obsessed with more power, probably end the expense here.

hi guys, I just started doing bit of mining for fun. Currently running few R-Boxes and have S3 on the way.

I am using Slush's pool and I wanted to ask, is there any nice visual representation in form of graphs that would show me what my current average rewards are ? It would be nice to see especially after few weeks how I am tracking.

Oops .006 a round, about 5-7 rounds a day.  So steady at about .03 a day for now.

Upgrading with cash is a pain. First you have to have to cash, then for some companies like Bitmaintech, you have to convert the cash to Bitcoins to place your order, all of which takes a little time and stress. BTCJam is an alternative. You can get a loan for a few bitcoins and order new miners, with the plan to pay back the loan with your increased earnings. I would never do that with a pre-order company like Butterfly, but I would for companies like Bitmaintech. I ordered 8 of the new S3 miners with loans from BTCJam, and got money for 6 of them on BTCJam. 4 have arrived already and the next 4 will be here Monday. As a plus, the S1's still have some value, and I sold all 7 of mine on Craigslist for about $800.

For what it is worth, I have now purchased a total of 15 miners from them factory direct from China, and they all have shipped when promised. It is almost as addictive tracking shipments on UPS and watching them go from China to Alaska to Kentucky to Atlanta, as it checking stats on Slush :-)

I highly recommend the S3. The 4 I have are running very well, each getting about 440 GH/s. Batch 4 is already sold out but Batch 5 is open and will ship August 7th +/-.

I don't have a relationship with Bitmain or BTCJam, that is just what I did to keep my mining meaningful. It will take me from 2 TH/s, which barely pays the electric bill now, to ~5 TH/s, which will (the missing 1 TH/s is from 1 S2), plus pay the BTCJam loans (key to pay back early while 5 TH/s makes money), and have a little extra to invest on BTCJam for future use.

Now if I can just find someone to buy the S2 ....

The Graphs tab on the Slush website is useful for this. Check it out if you have not already. It graphs daily payouts and moving 7 day average.

I like it, it works fine. Reliable and steady.
S3 can get the same GH/s for about 2/3 the cost, and I am just tired of $600 plus electric bills.
The S2 is a fine 55nm miner, I just want to migrate to 28nm.

I see, thanks, cant wait to see my first bill.

I know what you mean about tracking a package from China.  Not sure why its so thrilling but tracking direct from china to my home in less time than a domestic package is just killer.  Both my S1 and S2 are amazingly well made and came flawless. I am  very impressed by this company and I'm sure they'll will make a nice show piece at some time Smiley
