Being the IT admin, i have access to a climate controlled room and unlimited power. If anyone happens to be in the server room and sees my miners, they assume it is networking/server equipment.

I run 6 ant s1's.

I started mining in March. I am still new.

I am nobody's judge, but here a reality check. What you are doing is no different or better than taking home reams of printer paper = theft. Do you like your job?



I do the same thing as my company pays very little for power and we have solar also.  My boss approves me using it and he is even wanting to get in on the mining action.

Mine has had similar comments. He asks me about BTC and mining at least once a week. I am trying to convince him to pick a few up for our other location.

For any of the Slushers wanting to pu some hashing power to keep with the difficulty jumps long timer Canary is doing a GB. https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=735982.0

Man, diff. is rising too fast! SLOW down with the miner purchases, hahaha

If everyone continues to add hash power...the difficulty will increases will only be that much sooner and possibly greater percentage increase.

Sadly I must find a place for hosting my gear near Portland and I have nothing hashing since last night.

Huh Bad wires in new place? We gotta get u back hashing. Have you talked with Matt @ MS about hosting? I've got a guy hosting a few of my miners not far from you, I'll see if he's got any room left. I think he's charging me $0.18 kWh, super cheap really.

Haven't done business with him but this guy is hosting SP30's and others for folks and is that area, rates looked pretty good.

My life gets chaotic way too often Sad and I think hosting would be best for my miners for more up time.

I wouldn't even mind paying those rates for more up time, ha!

Interested how real life block rewards have changed recently for other Slush miners.

With hash power at Slush at record highs and the new difficulty, how has your avg. block reward changed...?

Interested in medium size miners 1-10THs. Mine went from about 0.14 to 0.12 in the last 2 weeks or so w/~3THs...

^ I've had to add 250ghs per mining rig to keep my payout the same at this score based pool. It now takes 2.5th to get 0.01 payout per BLOCK on slushes pool. Slushs Pool has 0-12 blocks a day, but averages 4-5blocks over time. I was running 4.5th(2.25th per rig) here to get 0.02 per BLOCK, now I've bumped it up to 5th to keep my total payout per BLOCK the same. The other pool I mine on has pplns payout so I keep my DAILY payout at 0.02. Ive had to add about the same ratio in ghs to keep a 0.02 payout per DAY at BTCguild. It now takes 1.25th there to get the 0.02 per DAY payout. It was only taking 1.1th before. Keeping my payouts at a certain amount by adding ghs(most of the time small, sometimes large) has worked very well for me. I also have some hosted miners, but I use a slightly different strategy with those.

Note: Of course as the pool hoppers come and go(even though they loose profits by hopping), those payouts do fluctuate a small bit.

Even if I wanted to keep adding miners I really couldn't unless I have an electrician put in a couple more circuits...$$$...not going to happen. I have miners in my garage, office, bonus room and crawlspace. The Mrs. would not stand for miners in the bedroom ;-)

What I've done is sell old ones, not as easy as it sounds, and replace with new efficient ones. The new s3's are really great to upgrade rigs with(450ghs/370watt). I'm in the same boat as you now with the electricity avalible so I depend on having my new miners hosted unless they come out with more efficient miners. I have also under volt/under clocked some to help me add more but those miners had already made their share so I could justify bringing them down.

Is it generally agreed that Slush has been trustworthy and nothing shady is happening?







Does anyone actually make sure when the pool finds a block, that it actually gets distributed to its workers?



Hardly anyone speaks English on this forum.

it would be pretty obvious. why would slush even need to do that since he is making a killing from us all.

Slush's hash rate 6219953.376 Ghash/s just now!

Watch your block rewards melt down like snow cones in the August sun. Cool

I've been monitoring my payouts from Slush over many months and can 'testify' that they were consistent with the reported values on the Stats page and payout history.  There were some rare 'glitches' that caused delays in a small number of cases, but these have been rectified eventually.  As suggested, Slush benefits long term from honesty and transparency.

There are actually certain long time members of this community that spend a lot of time trying to prevent scams and other dishonest activities here. I'm sure they would be all over a theft by a pool operator who also uses this forum. Slush is legit. Always has been, always will be.
