These miners become obsolete faster than any other technology I have seen. My miners were soo good 4 months ago and now they are barely able to keep up with electricity costs!

Time to upgrade. Got enough BTC mined to purchase a new miner, gotta find the best price.  Grin


What is your reward per block, fellow miners? Mine is embarrassing so you go first  Cheesy

Careful

IF you're not discussing or have questions about the damn pool you need to start another topic


Uh oh, vigilante moderator alert!  Grin

I believe I was on topic. The current discussion was the newest Antminers and their prices. I saw screenshots relating to the price of an Antminer from one source and saw that a fellow community member mentioned that a better deal exists as another member had posted one.

Further, I was wondering what the other miners at Slush's pool are getting per block. I believe that this is indeed a Slush-specific question as well because the hash rate varies from pool to pool.

While Slush doesn't visit this thread any more, a lot of people who mine on this pool do. Please stop turning this thread into your private mining blog - while some people enjoy what you have to say, many others do not and it has strayed too far off topic. Start another thread.

Your right.  I just wanted to point out to other Slusher's they can get their rigs cheaper than another place that was recommended in this forum.

Only trying to look out for my fellow Slusher's



NOTICE:  See how my user name:
implies he was talking to me?

Someone else was trying to point out a US website for bitmain.  I pointed out they can get them cheaper at bitmaintech.  THEN I'm the one who gets reamed for it.  LOL




EXACTLY!!!

I was talking to someone about miners as well but I was given this message by the moderator.

Probably 70% of the stuff discussed on here has nothing to do with Slush's pool.

So, WHY I was gotten on to beats the hell out of me?

Unless, there was someone who doesn't like me who decided to PM the moderator or something.

I just want them the hell of my back.

Like I said, at least 70% of the stuff on here has nothing to do with Slush's pool.  Yet, someone gets onto me.

I was talking about miners and their prices as well, but a moderator gets onto me.

^^^ Would not worry too much about that, just that some idiot had turned the thread into something akin to, and I quote, "a personal blog". It was more like a show and tell in a thread that is referenced by others as a repository for information about slush's pool (as the title suggests) and any other obiter-dicta relating there-to.

EDIT: - In any case, good pool luck yesterday and long could it continue today too .... a couple of 1 hr blocks to follow the one we are on would certainly do that.

Also, what you get on slush depends on your hash power AND how long you've been hashing ...

I actually like the closet project. Those miners are mining at slushs pool. It's a lot better than newbies constantly accusing slush of cheating or not keeping the pool up. As long as we keep this a NO FUD ZONE and about Slush's Pool and our mining, it's all good.

Thank you for the props on the closet project!

As for my accusations in the past [As a newbie] I have learned from the error of my ways.  

I'm not making accusations any more at anyone about cheating anyone in the pool.  

I was a damn newbie when I made two accusations on here and I'm still a newbie.  However, I have learned from my mistakes.

Does that mean I should be mocked and ridiculed from this day forward by others in the forum because of my ignorance in the past?  

I would hope not!!!

Those who do are obviously immature and need to take a look at themselves.

If I make a mistake, I'm man enough to own up to it.  However, some on here want to continue acting like little dogs barking to instigate the big dogs into getting up to see something that is nothing.  

It's a damn shame some on here have to act like little children.  Hell, they might be a damn child.  I don't know.

None of this is directed at you, Billbags.  I'm just spilling out my observations of others in the forum.

@vesperwillow
By asking that question we know you are not current on Bitcoin mining(there are very efficient miners out now), but buying BTC at current low prices is a good idea.

Yeah I'm not current, I just stay on top of it every day. Maybe instead I should just stay up 24 hours a day and glue my retina to the screen.

I was just suggesting that, because BTC is so low right now, it's cheaper for most people to buy direct than to buy a miner to try and mine back that amount. Because, you know, everyone's power cost is different, and Bitcoin now is more valuable than Bitcoin later, especially if an arbitrage pops up.

Love how people say things, and don't even know anything about a person. Roll Eyes

Good to see how many active folks we have on the pool, slush has always been great.

Wouldn't it be more profitable to buy BTC outright, than to buy new equipment? Unless/until BTC is worth many decimal points, earning fractions won't cover your electrical cost very well over the coming months, regardless of the upgrade.

My post wasn't meant to be malicious.
I was just pointing out the facts that new Asics are very efficient now and selling their old miner and buying a new is not a bad idea. My equipement as most others covers my electric with no problem, I do agree over the next few months Bitcoin will be low and volatile until after the fork, due to people knowing about it so soon. I also stated this is a good time to buy at these low prices.

Have a good day Wink Back to mining at Slush's Pool.....

Can someone explain the cumulative distribution function (CDF) from the stats page. I understand probability theory somewhat from when I was researching the W. Feller citation on the white paper, but I have always had a hard time applying it with Slush's graph. I have always just looked at the number around the one hour mark and if it's 20% or better it usually takes around 4 hours or less to find a block. I also watch it sit at 99% for hours waiting on a block. If someone could explain the number a little better this would help out a great deal. Thanks in advance.

Finally some discussion which is pool related, so I will try to explain ...

We know (I hope) that usually block is found after exactly difficulty shares are submitted, which is equal to 100% luck, but not all rounds - CDF shows how many rounds (in percent) are completed in the current number of shares submitted.

Example as of right now:
Quote
Current round duration:   3:54:31
Current shares CDF:   51.75 %
Current Bitcoin block, difficulty:   327538, 35985640265
Shares contributed in current round:   26222487684
We have submitted (since the round start) 26222487684, with the current difficulty equal to 35985640265, so we have submitted 26222487684/35985640265=0.72869309788283129217792729468892
In short 0.73, then we look at the graph and it shows CDF being 52%, which means in 52 of 100 rounds we would have found a block by now.

Example from the previous round:
Quote
Duration: 10:25:16
Total Shares: 69928582694
69928582694/35985640265=1.9432357512341735737628677148118
or 1.94 = CDF of 86%, which means that 86% of our rounds are (should be) shorter than that

^ Thanks, that's actually a great explanation. I wasn't connecting the difficulty shares to 100% luck with the rounds included. It makes sense now.

Well, no blocks found today (UTC time) and current one is at 17.5 hours. 
BUT, the 1 day pool luck is at 186%.  Huh
