Since I have been on slush never seen a lull long this. Current round duration: 1 day, 3:06:46. Has this happened before? Seems too long between rounds.

Edit: The lull just past. That was a long round. Glad it is over.

It happens sometimes, even on Slush.  For example Slush block #22525 took 1 day and 4 hours (29 July 2014),  block #21844 took 1 day and 53 minutes (19 Mar 2014), block # 22072
took 1 day 5 hours and 22 minutes (12 May 2014).  But then there are the quick blocks that take just a few minutes...

Wow,

We went down to 7.6 PH/s from 9.8 PH/s.  Now we're back up to 8.5 PH/s.  Sweeeeeeeeeet!

Must have been someone renting some cloud having power that had us up to 10 PH/s earlier.

I've seen like 46 seconds before on here.

I'm sure there is one faster than that.

Slush's block #21870 was solved in 29 seconds (and confirmed, 25 March 2014), we had a 4 sec block which was invalid.

Hi Guys,

Quick question..

I'm starting to ramp up my mining efforts at the moment.  I currently have 3 x Antminer S3+ units pointed at the pool, and I've ordered an S4 which is due for delivery today.  Is it better to have each unit with it's own worker setup on the pool side, or for me to setup a stratum proxy locally?

Thanks in advance for your help!

The advantage of having dedicated worker per unit is the ability to monitor them more easily, but you can do this even with proxy on your side.
The proxy will reduce your bandwidth usage and will put less load on the server too, so if you can do it - do it.

I'm a little lost with this. The antminers are using cgminer which is built on a stratum proxy. Why or how would you use an extra stratum proxy on the user end. I used to run one(slushs stratum proxy), but that's because my miners were only getwork enabled(no cgminer/bfgminer) so I understand how that works, I guess my main question is why have an extra stratum proxy?

I guess my main question is why have an extra stratum proxy?
If you have 5 miners at the same location and each one connects to the pool - it's 5 connections.
If you proxy them via single link - it's just one connection ... no matter if the miners are stratum or getwork.

I am not common with antminers, but if they allow for other miner(s) to connect to their cgminer as proxy - that's also an option and will discourage setting-up separate proxy.

Thanks, I get it now. Just set up like we used to:

1) run slushs stratum proxy on ethier a pc or pi.

2) put the ip of the computer/pi that's running the proxy into your antminer(instead of stratum.Bitcoin.cz:3333)

3) if your mining somewhere other than slush, make a shortcut for proxy, then right click on shortcut and change "target info" to pool of your choice(since proxy comes normally configured for slush's pool)

Here's a very interesting thought against the depletion of btc.


25 millionbtc exist to be mined if weve mined about 1m and all the companies and/or banks get in on this.   Wont it mean we will run out of btc a lot faster then the predicted 2020-2040(which I believe it may be shorter than that)




Theories?Huh?
