Odd that we seem to have better luck when we're below 9.5 Ph/s.  Huh
Guess that's why they call it luck.

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

Yup I agree every time we cross 10PH these long blocks come. Glad to see I am not the only one noticing this odd coincidence that makes absolutely no mathmatical sense whatsoever. The higher the hash rate the more blocks you find, is what the math says. But time and time again as soon as we cross 10PH blam long a$$ block times

If you check about 30 pages back, the same was happening around 8PH mark and there were theories about server problems etc., while this time your statement is more correct:
Guess that's why they call it luck.
It's just coincidence - don't look for any conspiracy Wink

It's running cgremote. Excellent software.  Has remote access and sends emails if something goes wrong. I really wish I could turn the sp10 off for the night but this round is taking forever.

Screw coincidence!  It did it again. Dropped to 9.5PH and normal service resumes. Wierd.

I also agree that as soon as we get over the 10PH marks things grind to a hault.

I have been with slush over a year now, and left a few weeks back because of the really odd rounds, but now im back and while were under 10PH normal service has been resumed.

By the way i lost more by leaving slush than i would have made by staying, so there is that to throw in the mix, I tried BTCguild for a week and tried Eligius also.

 Huh

I'm currently giving Bitcoin Affiliate Network a spin for a few hours.  Purely experimental.

I've earned 0.00071229 in 30 minutes.  On slush I get approx. 0.008 per block.  At this rate it will take approx. 5.5 hours to earn 0.008btc

However.  By entering the last 10 block durations at http://www.csgnetwork.com/timescalc.html it gives an average duration of 5 hours 24 minutes.

10 previous was average 5 hours 16 minutes.

So, no real difference there.  Might go looking at some other pools to compare.

Unless some pool gets super lucky BAN pays the best because it is PPS with no fees and 1% bonus.

Except when they don't pay or they reduce your payout PPS rate because they feel like paying you less than they should Tongue

Or when every 9 blocks out of 10 is an orphan.

Or when they have "payout bugs"...

Slush pays well per block but as things average out, as we have seen in the last month or two, it can slow down to a halt. Those big gains you think you made in one day level out for those big 24hr blocks. If you spend enough time on Bitcoin Affiliate vs Slush pool on an normal average run, the rewards will be approx the same. 5thash on BFA will yield .06btc per day. 5thash on Slush will yield approx 0.012btc. You will need to find 5+ blocks per day to be consistently higher for the week on average.

There's no point quoting figures like '5 blocks' and '0.012 BTC'
They are purely dependent upon the pool hash rate and if the hash rate drops, although the number of blocks found is expected to drop, the amount you get paid per block will increase.

Yeah you're right but on average the pool does sit on 9thash. I'm simply applying the formula based on the figure in the title of the thread which is what most new member to the pool will initially see.

Well my experiment is done. Payout was prompt. Earning were no different to slush really but is a close 2nd.
I too have been experimenting with the payouts of a few pools, mainly Slush vs BTC Guild but also to a lesser extent with Eligius, I have dabbled with a few others but will not present those numbers at this time.

In October last year, I ran all 3 guilds at the same time and when the results are scaled to make sure they all received equal hash power, I find that I have a reward ratio of 5.28:4.37:3.68 (Slush:BTC Guild:Eligius)

Since then I have been only running Slush vs BTC Guild (lthough I tracked Eligius blocks to get a longer comparison) and in the last 106 days, Slush has earned more than BTC Guild on 64 days, with BTC doing better on 42 days - although by the end of today I suspect that will be 43 to BTC Guild. In terms of earnings, this a ratio of 1:0.82 (Slush:BTC Guild) - in other words, what ever your hash power, for every £1 you could generate at Slush, the same hash power would yield £0.82 at the BTC Guild.

We all hate the 1 day+ blocks and whilst I can see a correlation between pool hash power and no. blocks found, I cannot see any real correlation between pool hash power and average reward over time since as the power goes up, the blocks go up but the reward per block goes down. Notice I did not say anything about luck since over the last 3 months, the average number of blocks per day has remained fairly constant (4.8/day for Slush and 6.3/day for BTC Guild) so has our luck - around 100%. If anyone is interested, we are currently on 5.2/day for February as confirmed by the 7 day luck value.

Basically, I have a monster spreadsheet of figures, month-by-month, pool-by-pool, block-by-block and there is nothing strange going on anywhere that I can see (except my love of spreadsheets maybe  Embarrassed), so can we please stop with the conspiracy theories about our hash power of 10Ph, because they are ridiculous and I hate reading through them to get to the more interesting posts! We have had 10 blocks in a day at 8Ph and also at 12Ph but it all averages out in the end folks.

In conclusion, I have been with Slush for coming up to 2 years and have yet to find a better paying pool.

Cheers n beers for all
