David,
Good vid, I have seen him expostulate on the subject before but this was a good iteration. The Circle article was a very good summation of the basic idea many of us have been promoting for the past couple of years.

Is anyone else noticing that their error rate at the pool is swinging wildly the past couple of days?
It could just be something in my setup but I haven't been able to find it yet.
My error rate (normally between 2 and 4%) has been shifting between 1% and 24% every couple of hours for the past day or so.
I am looking at everything I can think of from the controllers, software and internet connection to the cables, PSU and board connections.
If anyone has any suggestions they would be appreciated.

Wow!

Sounds terrible no matter what "error rate" you are referring to.  My question is, "What error rate?"

Are you referring to HW errors?  Get Work Fail Occasions?

Damn good YouTube video:  Bitcoin Cryptocurrency Crash Course with Andreas Antonopoulos - Jefferson Club Dinner Meetup

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JP9-lAYngi4#t=304

So 2 hours ago I was gonna check the pool, eat supper and watch The Voice. Thanks to your post I have not got any of that done. That is a grate video. It was worth the time Grin

This is the one I actually watched:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xUNGFZDO8mM

Wow!  Wow!

Damn good video!!!

I like the YouTube video you provided a link to [Of the same dude] more than the one I provided a link to.  I'm putting a hyperlink of it on here again in case anyone is interested.  

I must say this is the best advocate ever for bitcoin to politicians.

JT

The more I think about it, I wish those who left would stay here rather than leave.  We need more hashing power as a pool to maintain the "norm" each day.  I know some prefer they stay away to have a higher payout.  However, there is less chance of finding blocks as often.  It's a trade off.

GHash has gone from 57 - 60 PH/s a week ago to 63 - 65 PH/s the last couple of days.  They have gone from 9 minute shifts to 8 minute shifts over the last few days.  I think a lot of miners left here and went to GHash and/or BTC Guild.

I have all of my 7.4 TH/s right here at the moment.  I'm thinking about splitting my hashing power again between pools if the luck here doesn't change soon.  However, it is nice to see the size of the pay out per block found here compared to other pools.

I'm getting .02261740 average payout with 7.4 TH/s at the moment.  It can fluctuate depending on the total hashing power of the pool.  At the Dark Side, I can get .00285674 on average.  That means I need to find 7.91721(7.9) blocks on GHash for every one block we find on Slush.

What are some of the best 2nd-hand mining rigs at the moment around the 100usd mark?

I'm going to choose Bitmain Antminer rigs more than any other mainly because of "stability."

As for "2nd-hand" rigs, that is putting a lot of trust in the seller that all is okay with the 2nd-hand rig.

The best thing going at the moment for close to $100.00 USD [AND IT IS BRAND NEW] would be the NEW Bitmain Antminer U3 https://www.bitmaintech.com/productDetail.htm?pid=00020141017110427977rQGR3pcf06BE

$56.00 USD for each U3.  You can get two of these for $112.00 and have a total of 126 GH/s.

Yes, you could buy a "used" bitmain antminer S1 on eBay that has 180 GH/s but you also need to purchase a PSU.  That would put you over $100.00 or right at it.

The new U3 also needs a PSU but only requires one (1) PCIe to power it.  Depending on the PSU you get, you can power 2 to 6 Bitmain Antminer U3's.

Also, the new U3 is NOT stand alone.  You need cgminer to run this.  If you are not cgminer literate, as I am not, you may want to get an S1 on eBay from a reputable seller.

Antminer U3: Decentralization continued
 
Bitmain are committed to furthering the decentralization of the bitcoin network and providing quality products to consumers. In light of this, Bitmain is proud to announce its latest miner, the U3 USB miner.
 
The U3 utilises 4 of Bitmain’s latest generation BM1382 chips in high quality, domed case.
 
Batch 1 will go on sale on Oct. 18th Beijing (UTC +8 Time Zone). The 1st Batch of U3s are priced at 56 USD per unit (excluding shipping), with dispatch estimated Nov. 5th. A minimum order quantity of 60 is required, each extra units added must be the integral multiples of 20.
 
 
Specifications:
* Hash Rate: 63 GH/s at 0.75V
* Power Efficiency: 0.8 Watt/GH/s on wall at 0.75V
* Voltage: DC 12V input, 6A
* Chip Quantity per unit: 4
* One 80mm fan
* Noise: ~25 DB at 25 °C ambient temperature
* Hashrate and VDD core voltage can be adjusted via cgminer command line
* USB connection
* 12V AC/DC power brick of 16A, but power line not included
* Certificate Compliance: FCC/CE
 
Note:
1)   Power consumption: Quoted figures depend on your PSUs efficiency, the ambient temperature and the accuracy of the power meter.
2)   PSU: You must provide your own ATX PSU with 1 PCI-e connector, or a power line.
 

Features:

Scalable: Multiple U3 miners can be maintained by one controller running cgminer due to its USB port.

Hassle free: Setup consists of plugging in the USB and power cables and running Antminer CGMiner.

Cool: U3s remain cool and quiet due to its 80mm fan which quietly exhausts air out the side of the case.  

Stable and Accurate: Based on the tried and tested BM1382 chip, the U3 is extremely stable and is able to run 24 hours a day without problems.

Exquisite:

The refined design of the U3 allow it to blend on any desk or shelf without standing out.

Now, if I were in the US, I'd be bidding .... each @ $200 including PSU is unreal! I know a few fellas who've paid as much for just the PSU.

I picked up 6 S1's the other day for $39 a pop shipped and they took BTC. So no skin off my butt. Half tempted on that one lol. Hopefully Bitmain brings out more upgrades.

I saw that with only 2 bidders and the highest bid was around $100.00

Now the price is at $6,100.00 with approximately an hour remaining. 

That is $30.50 each at the moment.

10 minutes remaining and still $6,100.00 or $30.50 each.

Well,

$6,100.00 was the final price.

Dude will be very lucky to get paid.  I suppose it could be someone local who did not have an eBay account and just created one.  It's possible but unlikely.

You're probably right.

I hope this estimated difficulty ends up being no more than a 1% jump when it's all said and done.  The last difficulty change was on October 9, 2014.  October 23, 2014 (tomorrow) will be 2 weeks.

Only time will tell.


Bitcoin Difficulty:   35,002,482,026
Estimated Next Difficulty:   36,224,517,708 (+3.49%)
Adjust time:   After 66 Blocks, About 10.7 hours
Hashrate(?):   254,620,166 GH/s
Block Generation Time(?):   
1 block: 9.7 minutes
3 blocks: 29.2 minutes
6 blocks: 58.4 minutes
Updated:   16:59 (1.4 minutes ago)
