yea, I am probably gonna switch back now. My hashrate is only 100T though so I'm probably not going to help anyone much. But still, I really hate getting raped by Chinese pools........115% they said......until September they said.......

Doesn't matter how much hash you have, one should still not feed the Chinese mining pool monsters. Maybe if enough people got clued in they wouldn't rape miners. The sad reality is that most of the miners on their pools are clueless.

Welcome to our pool btw Smiley Happy mining!

thanks!  so far so good! daily payout is not as great as BTC.com or antpool, but I'm willing to stick around for 1 difficulty period just to see whats up!

Sadly most of my asian brethrens don't speak a dime of english or understand very little. So they stick with the chinese pools. Slushpool is better and more fair, but if you can't get past the language barrier, it aint gonna cut it. And even if they did, Bitmain will probably remotely shutdown our miners anyway.

Actually Slush does support Chinese language, you just have to click on the Chinese flag at the top to switch to that language ( and others).

Hahahaha, yeah that would be pretty funny if Bitmain started doing that but last I heard that "feature" was never used and they patched it/removed it in later firmware revisions.

In regards to the daily payouts, it will fluctuate a lot more than with those bigger pools but you'll see the average should be roughly the same. I tried Antpool for a bit and the payouts were the same, they just came more often cause that pool solves blocks more often. When Slush hits a round of high luck like it did a 3 or 4 blocks ago you'll be very happy! Those few rounds ago gave the pool a luck percentage of ~140% The pool will estimate your daily reward and it should be roughly the same as with your other pools over a long enough time frame.

Is anyone successfully mining BTC on Slush , using rental hashpower from Nicehash ? I've tried to run a small rental contract from nicehash, setup  the worker on the pool , but I keep getting disconnected from the pool. On the nicehash dashboard I get a "pool difficulty too low" error. I've increased the minimum difficulty to 16383 , but it looks like this value is not saved in the configuration of the worker nor the account default.
Any feedback is very much appreciated.

The pool side difficulty is the _minimum_ difficulty the pool will use, but the pool's difficulty algorithm automatically sets the appropriate difficulty for your woker(s). If as you say the values you set are not saved that is definitely a weird issue. As strange as it may sound try it on a different browser or machine and see if it works there.

Not a problem of browser. The worker mining diff is apparently set correctly , but when I run the Nicehash verificator it shows a different value.

Looks like a nicehash bug to me.

Daaamn, banging day on Slushpool

I switched off for a while, trying other pools out and stuff when reward rate got really low for a while the last month or so

Glad I switched back when I did!  I think the last two days I've averaged about 150-160% PPS

New to Slushpool - joined at a good time, the last few days have been very lucky!!  I have 4 workers-- Avalon 741's -- I wish they bonus'd the worker that finds the coin - that would be cool.  Like give them 1 BTC or something.  I know it would decrease the pool - but it would add some excitement!

I think that would bias it strongly towards the biggest miners.

What if that bias was balanced out by another 1 BTC that was gifted to the smallest miners in the pool?  Starting to get a little ridiculous but I think something like that could be a kinda cool way to grow the community.

BTW, what's the Canaan purchase process like?  Smooth?  I tried to get a S9 from Bitmain and it's just been an unmitigated disaster of incompetence, I'll never shop with them again under any circumstance.  I hear Canaan is a lot better though.

Canaan was very good for my first order, really good comms. -- fast ship, came to the US in about a week on fedex, they issued tracking right away.  They raised their prices a little, but now include freight.  Although I think before their freight calcs were messed up because they shipped me 4 741's for $118.  For $30 each it seemed really low for fedex to send something around the world, but maybe it's just me. 

For small orders, you have to pay by BTC.  They give you an address, and you pay with pretty much no recourse - so there's risk there.  My second order of 4 is not quite as smooth, but they say the got slammed.  They don't take your money though until your order is physically filled and ready-  I ordered 4 more about a week ago and they haven't shipped yet.  They are saying the end of August now.  So when they are "ready" they will send me a BTC address and I pay and then they will ship right away.

Their service / support was good also until slammed-- like all of this stuff lately, growing pains.

Oh and on the "finders fee" -  I am at about 30th/s with the 4 741's.... I thought we all have the same "chance", even if we are a lot smaller, statistically the odds would be the same for us to find one as the big guys-- so it would still be fair, albeit it wouldn't be near as exciting for them us for us little miners.  So if they want to encourage smaller mines, even if it was $100 it would still be something to make it interesting.  Right now the way it is, I would never even know if my little mine found anything.  They could at least send a thank you note lol.

Could you please help me out about what are we speaking here? Is it about Canaan you just speaking? 30TH/s seems to be good rate with that little piece of hardware and how is it possible really? Enlighten me as I'm completely new to the mining world. For now I'm just reading through all the posts here. Guy above you also speaking about Canaan which he bought at 30$ each. Please explain how is this profitable with that much low cost. Im completely new so my question might be just very stupid.

$30 per SHIPPING.  That's just the cost of delivery.  The actual price of the unit was probably about $720-$800 depending on when they bought it.

30TH/s is the rate attained with four of the units, collectively.

Simple answer, they are automatically being sold and converted to BTC and added to your BTC payout.

Not Asian here but I give Slushpool two thumbs up.  Prompt payment, they always pay (unlike 'Kanopool' which has largely failed to pay its smaller miners for three years now), and you can establish a minimum payout level, unlike Antpool which is designed to (long term) inflate transaction costs by flooding the market with tons of little payment slices.  Transaction costs that Antpool, for the most part, do not share with miners (except PPS+ payout method, which does in exchange for higher fees).

CKPool looks really promising too but it needs more hash power to really blow up (SPLNS).  ConnectBTC is pretty nice, basically just another Antpool with a different name and interface (PPS)
