Yah it makes no sense. Maybe it's just greed and the fee is too high. Then again some of the other pools have fees as well - with the exception of Antpool. I've used Antpool in the past and I'm firm convinced that Slush's infrastructure and web front end is superior in every way. The graphing and charting on Antpool is crap. I'd notice mysterious drops in hashrate. In fact oddly enough with Antpool S9s were performing worse. I'd see a loss of 4 TH on the daily average, which makes me think that the miners were dropping connection to the pool very frequently or the pool's network has some routing or connectivity issue. After moving them to Slush they've been rock solid and daily average is what the miners' web panel reports.

Anyways, not sure what Slush can do to bring on more miners. Maybe he can give a "fee discount" for miners that have been mining steady for X amount of days on the pool - a kind of loyalty reward. I dunno, just saying that this pool deserves more hashing power, that's all.


Antpool has fees... they're just hidden.  They advertise 0% fees, but the fine print states they do not give any transaction fees to miners.  That's about a 4% loss of income.

Yes you are absolutely right! What is worse though is the mining practices of Antpool which are bad for the network as a whole. The only advantage to antpool is the fast solve rate, but this can also be a disadvantage I'd say because network connectivity and latency to antpool's servers becomes a big issue when miners have to rush to send their work units. Ideal mining pool ecosystem would be a bunch of medium range sized pools that have low fees and pay transaction fees AND run a full btc node.

Mine at Jonny's Pool

100% agree.  Antpool produces the most empty-blocks of any entity on the network.  Crap coding in their hardware combined with crap coding of their pool.  Then they have the audacity to keep the transaction fees to pad their own pockets.

Your vision of the ideal ecosystem is spot on: a number of medium-sized pools spread throughout the world offering low fees and running full nodes that verify blocks.  Unfortunately, the reality is a vast majority of the global hashrate is concentrated in Chinese pools, most of which rip off their miners and/or are detrimental to the sanctity of the blockchain.

Jonny's Pool - Mine with us and help us grow!  Support a pool that supports Bitcoin, not a hardware manufacturer's pockets!  No SPV cheats.  No empty blocks.

I have a very big concern about the dominance of one country on the btc blockchain. Not only is a large portion of the network's hashing power concentrated in one country but so is pretty much most of the hardware production as well. At the moment the only two companies selling SHA-256 gear are both Chinese. With such a centralized scenario if anyone wanted to go after BTC they can really hurt it by going after the Chinese miners, pool, and hardware manufacturers. I'm not sure if there is a workable solution to this problem though at the moment.

I would however implore the Chinese miners to please think about the health of the BTC network and refuse to mine at pools that abuse the network and/or their users. If you have a lot of hashing power please spread it around to other pools as well. There are a lot of mining pools that deserve some love.

Why is this pool still not more popular!? Antpool has 300+ PH Sad

Maybe because AntMiners ship with Antpool as their default pool...  Huh

Maybe, but you'd figure if someone is smart enough to know about bitcoin miners, buy it, set it up, etc, they would be smart enough to do a quick search about all the various mining pools. I could have too much faith in humanity though. Most people are just lazy though.

It would be nice if Bitmain shipped them with no preconfigured pool info. The reality is that what you get in your hands is just gear taken off the shelf from their giant mines and since they mine for their own pool of course it's going to come preconfigured with a bunch of Chinese mining pools.

Back when I was on this pool about a year ago we went through a period of about 4 months straight where the luck was about 80% solid. Finally I had to jump ship.

Now that it seems to be around 100% solid I'm thinking about switching back. I do miss the layout. Its as good as it gets and I would like to have the regular payouts back too. The smaller pool I am on now is not doing so great on the luck these days.

Yep, pool luck has been rather nice since I came back to it as well. You're right, the layout and the interface are top notch. If the pool's hashrate would go up to 200 PH that would be super nice! Smiley Right now we are 6.6% of the network. If we can get to 10% that would be awesome. It would mean faster solve rate, faster payouts, etc.

Can you tell which miner finds the blocks on your pool? Thanks.

Also, transaction fees are probably going to rise. While the next halving is far away, after it, transaction fees are going to be an even larger portion of the block reward. A transparent 2% fee on the whole reward, is better for both miners and the pool (the pool need to pay for the servers somehow :/ ). Not to mention that hiding the fact that the pool keeps the tx fees is pretty dishonest.

Anyone know what's going on for the last couple days?  Last 10 Blocks is down to 41.45% on Slush.  People on Kano seem to be noticing something some serious bad luck, but both pools at the same time seems more than a coincidence?

I was wondering if -- now that it is another December -- Omega Mining is back testing their equipment  -- especially since it coincided with the jump up to 150Ph.

I never understood why Slush allowed them to get away with it last year.

It is basically stealing from all of us.

I HOPE that isn't what is happening and it is just coincidence -- but, it did occur to me.

Slush's pool is able to check for that sort of problem now.

Hey guys if you have a chance we're looking to get Crown added as one of the Auxpow coins. Currently there is over 300th/s dedicated to the proposal. And we would love some help from the Slushpool community as well.

It's all in the FAQ.  https://slushpool.com/help/#!/get-started/getting_started

There is a request on Development Corner to make the Unconfirmed reward stand out more on the progress bar on the Dashboard.  I have made a Stylish script that does that, but it is also a holiday theme.  Of course, you can edit it after the holidays (or sooner) to anything you like...

Check it out at: https://userstyles.org/styles/135466/slushpool-dashboard-holiday-theme

Just to add a little holiday sparkle to the aforementioned Stylish theme, I added gold color to the drop shadow in the middle of each panel box.
You can update your copy it at the above link...

Cheers!  Grin

, to start off, I am using a Antminer S5 to mine and it works fine and I have 1 miner that is mining but others are offline. That's really all the specifics I can give atm and this screenshot http://prntscr.com/dl5qnk

( And yes, I am putting the UserID before the worker name ) also some are disabled because I turned off monitoring.
