very strange, the chinese pool was able to change it's name from "Discus Fish" to "F2 Pool".



F2 Pool was never called "Discus Fish" by the owners. That was just a nickname I gave it from the coinbase signature of their blocks, and the nickname has stuck in the English-speaking world. The real name is "F2 Pool".

F2 Pool is bitcoin cancer. Anyone who uses it and isn't in china is a fool. It is one of the slowest paying pools you can mine if you're running less than 20thash. There are much more effective pools to mine. If you are mining F2 Pool, pull out and put your power into Bitcoin affiliate. For PPS they do extremely well. BA and Slush are the only pools I mine for BTC. Don't support those china pools aka the btc dumpers.

Everybody's bailing to Eligius.
Approximately same hash rate:
Eligius: 17 blocks found from 14 Jan to present; Slush 6 blocks found over same period.
The Saint of miners, St. Elegius is working his magic.

Hot time, summer in the city, back of my mine getting hot & gritty!!!

Morning,

Just a little question. Im not getting a best share value on my S2, but I am on both of my S3+.
Is this a problem? And if so, how do I rectify?

Many thanks as always.

I have mined nonstop here since December,2013. This is just ridiculous. I think Slush lost his mojo. Later  trying GHash.IO, can't be any worse than this bullshit

Ghash.io has more hash power, so there will be less variance. But will you make more in the long run? I doubt it.

Note that this person is running an experiment comparing Slush and Ghash.io real world profitability for two months. It's probably too early to call a winner, but so far Slush is ahead:

https://bitcoinsfaq.wordpress.com/2014/12/19/bitcoin-mining-2-longtime-slush-and-ghash-mining-pool-race-started/#more-93

It's interesting that Slush is ahead even with some pretty bad recent dry spells compared to Ghash.io which is at 40 some odd petahash and as a result is popping blocks on a regular basis.

I know that past luck cannot be a measure of future performance. But there certainly seems to be an anecdotal sense from a number of different sources that Ghash.io is less profitable with 0% fees than some other pools that have fees, like Slush.

Was I helpful?   BTC: 18wQtEDmhur2xAd3oE8qgrZbpCDeuMsdQW   LTC: LbqLtkZ6wTSpwHHuv1tG4J7tHajGdH5QFB   DOGE: D9R5ySAP2DARpxuNKd7hN7ANmqFiGwB9G6

Unless you have big power, any of those chinese pools are going to pay very poorly. I switched my miners back on today, and lucky I got in on 3 blocks found today after a slow painful week.

I've been mining another currency at the moment which when converted to BTC pays better than mining any of those junk chinese pools.

If you support those chinese pools(f2pool, ghash, btc china etc) you're part of the problem btc is facing. Get out of there.

No, not close. Not even chinese-ish.

If you have 1thash of power, your payout from f2pool is 0.01097974 per day. With 1thash on power on Slush you will make the same amount with 3 - 4 blocks, depending on pools power and the luck. Apart from the last week, and only the last week, I've made approx .03 - .04 btc per day from Slushs pool. This is not even over a 24hr period. From BFA you will stand to make .012 btc per day and that is not including the bonus if I recall correctly. Sure power to pay scales the higher you go, but like I said, for a small user, you will be slaughtered with power bills running a miner 24hrs a day to earn <$2.50 USD per day. For what, a pool which quite likely insta dumps the btc they find. The pay on Ghash.io is also far too poor to be effective. Honestly I've had better overall luck at MMpool than I have at any of those big dominating pools. Sure you get consistency but its such minute amount its not worth it at all.

I may have made a mistake about ghash.io being a chinese pool, I bought two miners from a local here(who was chinese) and he mined ghash.io because "they're a chinese pool". It took him 6 months of mining ghash.io 24/7 with 2.25thash to break even with his miners cost, this does not include power. This was factoring in my purchase off him too.

I've read here many times that those Chinese pools are a problem. I don't think btc is being treated the way it was intended to be. Its severely abused. Especially when you can find miners being dumped on eBay from China as "Brand new" when you know they have been thrashed and run non stop for who knows how long.

Well I'm out on slush pool for now.....except for the week or so of the paycoin POW (at 10x BTC at the time) have been with them from
Oct 18th 2013 with my KNC 550gh Jupiter and made almost exactly 50 btc as a result (still holding boy I'm dumb) anyway just shut it
off on Jan 18th 2015 (could run it a bit longer made a dandy space heater!) but even with that just don't fly to run vs 15c kwh elec
anymore at these prices and difficulty

I'll probably come back IF and I mean a big IF I ever home mine BTC again ..it does not seem likely

anyway thanks slush hopefully will catch your pool again on the rebound in the future with something new btc equip wise

Searing


p.s. I'm sure my 550gh I have just 'yanked' will increase everyones profit from my *ahem* adding to the drop in difficulty
'your welcome' lol Smiley

I'm always interested in the things on which people base their assumptions. "Chinese pools are bad" is a new one on me so I wanted to see if it was part of a new anti-chinese bitcoin movement or something.
