Ok, so I have a setup of 40 miners with 3 other associates...

We have agreed upon taking out the profit twice a month

But as it seems, you cannot send a specific amount to a BTC address, rather than just send the whole balance after it crosses the payout...

Can this be done? I am saying this because I would not like to pay the txfees (I know they are kinda low, but whatever you can save, its better)

Not sure what exchange you use, but I use quadriga CX, and they don't charge a fee for withdrawing BTC from their wallet. So I send their and then can forward it accordingly after I decide what to sell/hold

I get what you say, but this does not say anything about my original question... Is there a way to withdraw a specific amount of balance in Slush's pool?

There's none. If you're in one of the Coinbase supported countries, you can set that address to to receive the payment from Slush then to Gdax, then split it however you wanna and click the Send button.

Edit: doing it that way, you can save on the TX fee. I mean, TX fees are a joke these days anyways...

I got one question for this pool... I know when you switch pools you loose all your shares that you have submited - right? But what happens, if your miner goes offline, and you dont submit shares for certain period of time? Does that count as starting from 0 again, or you are continuing from where you have left?

And does this pool have PPS paying out system? If it does is it possible to get payments AUTOMATICALLY like once a week? Or something like that.

I don't think the pool offers PPS.

Because of the size of the pool if your miner goes offline you stop receiving a portion of block rewards after roughly  1.5 hours. Same as when you start mining your scoring hashrate takes a while to reflect your miners actual hashrate.

You can set auto payouts to an amount I don't think they do a set day and time of the week.

Merged Mining?............

Just read on Twitter about Slushpool putting substantial hashing power into RSK merge mining.

Never read anything on the site either about doing that. Maybe someone could enlighten me/us.
Wanted to make sure I was not missing out on anything....lol

And again the road to the 8 hours ( or more )  without finding a block. Sad

I wonder if shuting down the miners after the average number of  daily block have been found is not a better deal...

I just mine elsewhere once luck hits more than 150% - and come back when luck starts to trend to 80

Hello everyone,

Could someone possibly help me with JSON stats in Slush Pool?
Maybe smb knows what does Ghashes_ps mean? Is it Pool scoring Hash Rate?
And if it's not, how can I find in JSON stats the following data:
- Pool scoring Hash Rate
- Your (My) scoring Hash Rate

Thanks in advance!

Yes I've already thought about switch pool when bad luck, have you noticed a real gain doing that ? 
Ps: as soon as I spoke about slushpool, they found a block ! But still under 75% luck right now...

It's a gamble of course, but given how we expect 100% luck over the long run, I've made quite a bit on PPS pools and then switching back when I feel it's time for a run of good luck.

Scoring time is 1.5 hours, so with 100% luck for slushpool at around 1.5 hours as well odds are in my favor to fully "ramp" up the scoring hash rate by the time a block is found after I switch the miner back.

Edit: example - i switched 50% of my hash from slush to a pps pool a few blocks before the 8 hour block. In that 8 hours, I made maybe 2.5x what I made on Slush in the same period.

Please recommend best difficulty for S9 13.5 & 14.
Default is 128 - is this OK?
Thank You.

Thank You.

If you leave the default alone, the pool will auto adjust the difficulty just fine.

Why not just set the payout ratio to a very high number, say like 3 btc. And when u wanna withdraw, u set it to a the amount of your balance. It will then withdraw on next payout yes.

Yes. And No.

I have a site that tracks pool "Performance", not the same as luck but similar.
I switch hash to pools that are under performing and I expect them to "catch up".
Think "buy low, sell high" as if you are trading a stock.
I don't have any hard evidence to prove that the system works yet but I plan to audit the performance results and tweak the strategy.
For example, I switched out of slush yesterday and went into VIA. Now (or soon) will be the time to switch back into slush as luck returns.
My system helps me make decisions based on numbers and not emotion.

Here is the caveat: By the time you feel like you should switch away from a pool because it has bad luck it is already too late. When you're already experiencing a period of bad luck that is the time you should be thinking about switching more hash into the pool that is having the bad luck.

However, remember that pools like slush use score system that discourages frequent pool hopping.

An equally valid strategy is just stick with pool like slush that shares fee reward with miners and over a long period the luck will average out.

Just to make this post even longer and give you something else to think about:
The difficulty adjustment is coming up in about 2 days and often fewer blocks are found right after DA, based on my observations. That's when I switch in to pool that has PPS for a couple days so at least I'm getting regular payouts during the adjustment.

Pool switching can be stupid if you do it based on emotion but if you have some strategy behind it then it can be smart.
Its your hash. Do with it as you please.

No, there is no strategy.
It can't be 'smart'

It's effectively Gambler's Fallacy thinking you can predict luck:

Wonder how close to the previous block it was, if it's within a few seconds, can definitely see an "empty" block.
