Kano is great but a bookkeeping nightmare with all the small payouts.

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

In the case of BIP 148 occurring, will Slush be giving an option to direct hashpower to the BIP 148 chain? Hopefully I understand correctly that miners can choose which chain to mine on (?).

Anyways I would like to mine on BIP 148 and stay at slush when the time comes.

Hashrate distribution went from 4.4% to 0.6% in the last 4 days, looks like a large factory went online in china.

You sure? It still says ~4.x - precisely 4.2% right now.

This could all just be shitty pool luck and nothing shady at this point. 25 Hrs without a block is bad, but not yet get out the pitchforks and shovels territory just yet.

If you change the parameters on top to 24 hours, it will change the hashrate distribution, right now the 24 hour hash rate is 0, so it doesn't even show slushpool.

Terahash/sec rate went from 4,500,000 to over 5,000,000 rather quickly. A difference of 500,000 TH/s is equivalent to about 37,000 S9s coming online.  I've linked the hashrate for 30 days below, very sporadic swings.  I'm not sure why the sporadic nature of the chart is like that, I would expect something more linear.

Damn, 500 PH?! Holy shit, that's a monster load of hashing power. Then again I'm not surprised given the current btc price. There is a mad blood thirst for more hashing power now.

I'd say if we still don't see a block after 48 hours then I'd be definitely concerned. 26 Hrs and counting so far.

I think a more important topic to discuss right now is BIP148. Everyone please vote. I am also curious what the pool operators opinion is on this. 27% currently voted "pool decides" and 13% did not vote. So what is the pool decides option - support for BIP148 or not?

Read the top line of that page "An estimation of hashrate distribution amongst the largest mining pools"

This chart is only an estimation of hashrate based on blocks found. It assumes that since your pool found 'x' number of blocks in a 'y' hour period, your hashrate is 'z'. The calculations are based on the pools having exactly 100% luck. Which we all know never happens. Take a look at Kano pools luck it says it went from 1.8% to 3.7% in the last 24hr period. The hashrate there did not double, the pool simply had a lucky streak. The same thing applies to slush when there is 900+% block, the short term calcs are wildly skewed since they are based on 100% luck. Fortunately blocks like this only happen 1 in ~8000 blocks.

I agree, curious what fellow slushers are thinking. I doubt pool operators will commit to anything just yet but curious to hear as well. Personally I'm going for BIP 148 and came back to Slush yesterday due to the announcement.. I'm sick of this asicboost attack  ...

Also I don't get why people continually post about luck on these pool threads. You should expect periods of good luck and periods of bad luck... its called variance. Long run Slush has been great so why worry about day-to-day. These people probably play slot machines when they think the seat is 'hot'...

I too don't think Slush will commit to a publicly states opinion just yet. It's good that miners using this pool get a choice though.

I will go on record publicly to say that I support BIP 148. I spent the past 2 days looking into the possible repercussions and I think what is best for the users of Bitcoin is best for bitcoin itself. I am a miner, but I have at heart what is best for Bitcoin. The current state of affairs is unsatisfactory. Something needs to be done and both miners and users need to go in the path that is best for _everyone_ . The wise move would be for miners to signal SegWit early before the BIP 148 deadline. It pains me to see that some people are willing to risk the reputation and integrity of Bitcoin because of their own stubborn self interest. But anyways, such is how life works. Whatever scenario plays out I hope the damage (if there is any to either bitcoin itself or to its users via lost coins etc) is minimal or non-existent.

How do you go about getting a payment that was never received?.... Ive never had a payment issue before and today about 6 hours ago I got an email saying i received a deposit from slushpool....No big deal I get deposits about every 2 days....This deposit today has not showed up in my wallet at all...usually it sits there waiting for confirmations but this time nothing.... transaction id is    b7a14a5f0e0a41759f80b8b73069d08470d6e35423a191c7640bc16db745ea91    it also said this... Warning! this transaction is a double spend. You should be extremely careful when trusting any transactions to/from this sender. What is going on?

Hey.  

Not sure if this is the right place.  Just not sure where else to post this.

Regarding Zcash mining on Slush pool.  

Why is it that on average we don't find a Zcash block for about 1-24hrs?  We have a fairly high hashrate.  
Other pools with lower hashrate can find them every few hours.    

For slush it varies between 1hr and 24 hrs.  


I live by slush's pool.   Just wondering why it can take us longer than some pools to mine zcash blocks.



Can anyone explain?



At this rate and cost for BTC miners I've almost come to a conclusion that I should just do BTC mining on the side and zcash mining (GPU mining) as my main as spending $1000-$5000 can give a quicker ROI and sweeter profit with GPU mining than spending $1000-$5000 on btc miners.   Infact spending $1000-$5000 I feel your lucky if you can make your money back in a year, let alone make any profit, unless your not paying for hydro.

I was planning not to reply, but couldn't resist ...

IMHO: It is better to move (even if not in the best possible direction) than marking time for years and going nowhere.
To became widely used (and rise in price) BTC needs stability not volatility and the never ending scalability debate is working against that for too long.
Yes, we will need to fix this 'fix' latter, but better latter than never.

I suggested some time ago (before BTU) to have dynamic block-size at 75% on daily basis (with each difficulty change), which was latter confirmed as the optimal fee point from someone's research (apologies for not remembering names and dates, but will try to find the facts if requested with reason).

On the other hand I agree that it is impossible to handle ALL and EVERY transaction(s) 'on-chain', so there should be some other mechanism to offload it/them ... I liked the idea (few years ago) of merged mining for such a second layer network (say LTC being the silver of BTC's gold and merged mined ... some how), but LN has some other advantages, so SegWit (and LN) is not bad either and easier to implement.

In the end we (may) have the best from both worlds ... well ... also the problems from both worlds, but after all it will be more positive than negative, so i would like to vote for it!
