Not good for huge hash power either!!!!!

IF AT LEAST those orphan were buried under a piles of Great Luck.... But it's quite the oppposite

I hope someone can Kick the box again and fix the luck  xD



Last 72 hours have been VERY terrible...
And the luck rating INCLUDE, all the past invalid block. So imagine that....

Still below 50% for 3 days straight.... For a 30 PH pool? BAH.

Yes.

They might implement nmc deposit soon, but right now it's the way it is.

I received another reply today from Slush regarding the recent influx of invalid blocks.

Quote
Thank you for pointing our attention to this situation. We understand your disappointment and are ready to provide you with more detailed explanation, please read below.

The primary reason for this behavior was recent malleability attack on Bitcoin network which caused the Bitcoind overload with transactions and directly affected the ability to propagate blocks into the network.
Not only our nodes were affected but many other nodes across entire BTC network as well.

Bitcoind 0.11.1 which was released 4 days ago contained bug fixes for these malleability attacks. We were testing it in the meantime in order to make sure we do will not cause any harm on our infrastructure and do not affect the
hash rate of our miners. We were stuck between a rock and a hard place these few days. But the unacceptable rise in number of invalid blocks forced us to act quickly. We would like to assure you that the new version of Bitcoind was successfully deployed on every node we use for our mining and blocks propagation. As a consequence we expect significant reduction in invalid blocks appearance in the next few days.

We hope you understand our struggle with the malleability attack and stay with us despite few bad days.
We are quick learners and are taking lessons from this experience which is going to have positive effect on your experience with our pool in the future

Which is what I said.

Well, probably that in combination with bitcoinds that haven't been optimised to cope in this transaction spam environment which can cause massive mempool and cpu blowouts and subsequently very slow block changes/getblocktemplate calls.

In other words slush hadn't manage to optimise his bitcoinds to cope under the circumstances and ended up depending on the newer bitcoind version to fix it. While he says many other nodes were affected, there were pools that were not.

That said.

I'm removing all my hashing from Slush.
Sorry, thought for sure you were one of the best pool!

But this is unacceptable.
Pay the fucking orphan, until then i'm out.

I won't be the stupid fuck that stay around in front of such a situation.

Slush at its current state is unreliable. Mine at your own risk? Dev won't share the risk with you that's for sure.

I agree. i have only 12 TH pointing but it does not help me with orphan block found frequently.

I'm going to hold on a bit longer before moving my hashing power to another pool.  Kinda ride out this turn of luck we have suddenly seen on Slush.  It can't be a coincidence that the day them fix the invalid blocks (supposedly fixed) that the luck turns totally around as well.  Had to be more going wrong behind the scenes than they are letting on.  Don't ya think??

No, I'm not saying that.  But I do find it rather odd that the pool was not only having way too many invalid blocks but also the pool luck was sinking like a rock.  They supposedly fix the invalid issue and at the same time the pools luck does a complete 180.  I'm by no means a mining expert so I don't know if the reason for invalid blocks was also tanking our luck however I do know Slush does not report luck correctly when it comes to invalid blocks.  The pool luck should have been much lower if he was.  

I think the question as to whether or not he has been ripping us off should be answered by someone with a lot more mining knowledge then I.

EDIT:  However, case in point while having issues with invalid blocks we were seeing 4-6 hour rounds.  Now with the with the fix the rounds have been much much shorter except for the 4 hour one today which happens to be in invalid block (379375).  As a rule of thumb I don't believe in coincidences.  Don't get me wrong, I'm complaining about the good luck we have had these last two days.
