According to the calculators that seem to be the standard here, on the current difficulty at 40ph, this pool should be generating a block every 4 hours (3 and change on last difficulty). Looking back at the historical block timestamps, I highly doubt all those 8+ hour chunks with no blocks were all bad luck at that hash rate. To be quite honest, it is WAY more than 250BTC that was withheld. I wouldnt be surprised if it was in the thousands per year.

Yes the 250BTC is the absolute minimum to have LOW confidence that someone is withholding.

Not finding a block for 10 Network diff is very rare.
0.99995460007024  1000.000%  1 in 22026.5

That would of course mean he was paying attention to individual miner block statistics and caught them out VERY early.

Slush pool seems to have turned into a honeypot to help the big companies succeed in killing off all the small miners on his pool.  Its rather funny that the pool is back to crazy long stretches of bad luck again after slush says its fixed.. Problem i have with this pool is you wont know something is wrong unless you figure it out yourself..  Slush making hand over fist in btc per month with his fees.. he dont give two shits about us.. As long as his ferrari has gas he is good to go! slush went down hill when he showed support for the 8mb bitcoin XT crap.  He gladly was all for more centralization so that the big boys can take this over.. He got constant backlash, ddos attacks, and im sure they tried to penetrate slush servers! Question is did they succeed and now slush has to refill his stash??  So if you ask me slush has been compromised by someone bigger than we know.  Whether he was robbed and is getting it back thru hiding blocks or will just let the 10 ph miner continue to rob the remaining miners.  How will slush know when the miner is having a bad stretch or went back to his bad firmware.. I find it funny that if it was custom firmware. then it was on a ton of miners and would have taken a shitload time to reflash them all. Or someone made a proxy that withheld blocks which is more likely!  This stinks to high hell!!  and the silence from the "captain" is golden.. Maybe he went down with the ship! LMAO

there is also a slim chance slush is allowing new tech to be trailed on slush pool, helping with software coding maybe, if thats the case, he really should open a 2nd private pool for this, slush is now my failover pool from my own Smiley

I consider myself small..sub 20th. And i found this wonderful place. Need to find a way to educate the lemmings before they all walk off the cliff single file.

2.2% of the blocks in the network for that "Week" is damn good, considering kano.is has 1.8% of the network hash rate at present.

I just tweeted that saying, isnt it ironic that this article comes out just after it is announced that there has been block withholding going on. I guess most of their miners really are just hobbyists and do not frequent these boards.

I do wonder what the hell an "Almost Block" is?

Maybe it's those high diff shares that kano.is has been reporting since the pool started? ... within 1% of being a block, that I call "Unworthy"

Or now I also log within 5% of being a block and report them randomly in the kano.is thread ... ... ...

No idea how that makes a pool more transparent though ...

The so called "Captain" has obviously paid someone to do this article.  He's in "repair" mode to try to gain back a tarnished reputation.  I KNOW he reads this thread but doesn't have the balls to face his naive members.

Isn't an "almost block" nothing more than the miner's share difficulty?  The only way a pool has any idea of your hash rate and how much of the block reward you should receive is by tracking how many shares you submit.  Almost block... lol.

sounds like slush is putting a band-aid on a broken leg.

First the issue of the stealing miner is swept under the rug, now he is adding these "almost blocks" sounds like another way for him to steal more money from his users by calling them almost blocks instead of stolen blocks from the "misconfigured" miner.


BTW where is the reimbursement to all the miners that had coins stolen from them from this supposed "misconfigured" miner.

o ya i know where it went.. right into slush's pocket.

I do wonder what the hell an "Almost Block" is?
It's a result of "almost mining", like "Oops, I was almost mining at slush until I did some actual research."

Many things to ponder here, but it's the little things that get me, like if the thread title can't bother to be updated with the pool hash rate in who knows how long, what does that say?  Says a lot to me.
