good question, I don't see anything wrong with this pool and slush has been around since pretty much the start if not the start.

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.

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...

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.

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.

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.

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.
