 How do you know if someone was block witholding?
It has been discussed to death in other threads.  There is absolutely no way of knowing it apart from bad luck for certain. The best you can do is be very suspicious once one miner has mined more than about 5x diff in shares and not found a block. By 10x diff it's almost certain. That's a long time to wait and see before you can start accusing, and there's nothing to stop them from just moving their mining to a different account or split it across multiple accounts to hide it. On the other hand, on a non-PPS pool, the miner has zero to gain by doing a block withhold unless they're maliciously trying to harm the pool as a very expensive exercise. The only known block withhold to date has been attributed to a software bug on the miner's part for their custom mining hardware+software combination, but even then we'll never know for sure.

Thank you for putting this into layman's terms. I actually understand it better now than from when I was trying to follow the thread and I do remember the custom software being mentioned now.

I don't claim to know too much about the technicalities of how mining works but I do my best to stay aware of whats happening so that I can make more educated decisions when it comes to buying new gear or what have you.

CK, know you visit various threads do you have any insight / speculation on the sudden appearance of the 3+PH here? As said thanks for that and other explanations it really does break it down and helps educate a lot of us.

No idea, and no they're not the same entity that mined on my solo pool.

We have went from 8 blocks in 24 hours down to 6 blocks in 24 hours. With this pool hashrate we need a minimum of 8 blocks per 24 hour. You guys know I'm normally positive about this pool when everyone is bitching, but it's panic mode time!!!! Sound the alarms!!!!!

What happened to this pool!!! My rewards have tanked and it is taking the same amount of time or even longer to find a block. If this keeps up it will be time to move on. A pity considering this was a great place to mine. Nothing good lasts for ever!!!

We have went from 8 blocks in 24 hours down to 6 blocks in 24 hours. With this pool hashrate we need a minimum of 12 blocks per 24 hour. You guys know I'm normally positive about this pool when everyone is bitching, but it's panic mode time!!!! Sound the alarms!!!!!!

Yeah I am watching the block count closely and will be making a move in the next couple/few days if necessary.

Same here. I really have enjoyed this pool so hopefully works out.

Pool luck (1 day, 7 days, 30 days):   111%, 95%, 107%
And there are still people who complain  Huh
As long as we are over 100% it doesn't matter how much hashpower is added to the pool, because the luck is calculated based on the actual power!
If we are over 100% luck we get more regardless of the pool hashpower.

Its not just us, I think it must be Manuf putting the newest gen ASICs to work either in their cloud farms or in testing before sending off to customers, every pool I looked at has had a big jump in hashing power this week and it looks like too much to just be people moving around. Haven't looked yet but anyone tracking the % increase in the total network hashrate?

Wondering if other pool members are experiencing lack of reward payouts.
My confirmed reward has been way over the payout threshold for at least 3 hours.  Ticket raised with Slush support.
Maybe this is related to the other 'hiccups' experienced over the last few days.

How about cold figures in stead of complaining? Yesterday I've mined only 0.048 BTC  (due to the increased hashpower)  At this moment (september 13) it's worth only 16,95. (sell on bitonic.nl)
I burn 11,36 Euro's electricity on a daily base, hence... my overwhelming profit was a whopping 5,59 lousy Euro's!


More non complaining figures: when I started mining I got the average of 0.087 BTC daily. At that time a BTC fetched around 635 Euro's, the equivalent of 55,42 Euro's. (still burning 11,36 euro's on electricity/day)

Bases on these non-complaining, but realistic figures I have to conclude that bitcoin "profits" have come down by a factor 10. I predict in a few months from now, mining bitcoins doesn't make any sense anymore for the common man.

The only way to make money in this game is either BTC surges and stays above $650 (or Euro equivalent) or you can buy mining equipment at a good price (I came up with my own formulas for that) and you sell the machines after 2-3 months, while you can get at least half you purchase price back. Of course, this is all 'work' so the real question is if you are not better off simply buying BTC when cheap(er). Keep in mind that many/most ASIC miner manufacturers run their newest machines for 1-2 months themselves before selling them so they are the only ones really ahead of the game.

The last 2 days my income reduced and is still going down. And as finding a block takes as long as usual, I'm off now.
Sad to say, I love this pool, never had any major troubles the last year. But now it's time to move on.

I hope, times will change and slush will find a way to double blockfinding.

So long, and thanks for all the fish!

Here's the reason: 9548835.185 Ghash/s !

When I turned off my machines a couple weeks ago the pool hash rate was around 6.0 mil.

I say thanks for all the memories.

Sure, but does a higher hashrate not mean faster blockfinding? Correct me, if I'm wrong.
