out of curiousity - is slush ever going to issue the NMC rewards? Last was in like January or February if I recall

That's a very good question, but I wonder if it's all really worth it.

especially when there are 6,675 blocks waiting to be processed.

I have a feeling they are not going to pay that out. There also doesn't appear to be enough people bugging them about it. Let's hope for the best. You are right though that we are entitled to those NMC earnings.

Not just 2% fee as one of the highest in market but withholding rewards now?

They have held back the NMC rewards since January... at that time - if I recall correctly - NMC was worth $13 each - it has dropped now so when they do payout, is it at the value when they should have issued it? or at the value it is now?

Don't believe they've sold whatever NMC they've accumulated so it would be at today's price.  Literally everyone's arguing over a few bucks at most.

yes what is a few bucks now - but was not a few bucks when they stopped paying out, it as $13 per NMC Coin.

if I recall it was 6,675 blocks when I posted above and even more now with a reward of 12.5 NMC per block and at current NMC price of .49982 - this is still $41.7k  - spread out to everyone, yea it is a few bucks - that is not the point. People quit pools and join others over a .1% fee which is also only pennies in the big scheme of things.

They obviously don't feel it's that big of a bother to sell them and pay us off.

maybe but either way it is still owed to the miners. I am sure if any other pool was to owe you, you would not dismiss it. it is not about the amount, it is about the principle. They could at least answer as to why they have not.

edit: and it had reached $10 not $13 at the time they stopped paying.

When I asked them directly this was the response:

Code:
(me)
In my reward History it shows NMC - but even though it shows i have a scoring hash rate, it shows zero as my reward for the merged mining. when will this screen accurately display what we are earning and achieving for the NMC?
(Slush)
we hope it will be processed as soon as possible. Your Namecoin rewards will be then added to your usual BTC rewards according to the exchange rate.
(Slush)
(me)
The exchange rate at what time though? The time the reward was earned? Or the rate at the time you Figure it out to make it work?
Hello,
your reward will be calculated according to the exchange rate at the time we exchange NMC to BTC.
We are doing our best to solve the difficulties as soon as possible.
(me)
According to the rewards page - you havent exchanged any since January...
(Slush)
Hello,
that is right, the last exchange from NMC to BTC has been made in January. We hope we can solve the exchange difficulties as soon as possible to be able to give you the reward from the merged mining.
Because we need to exchange NMC into BTC to be able to give you the reward and we are currently experiencing some difficulties with the exchange it takes a while before the rewards gets processed.
For technical reasons we process the NMC rewards only every few weeks to months.
We are sorry for the inconvenience.
(me)
What exchange are you using? Many exchanges are buying/selling NMC without issue. And when the exchange issue is corrected at what price will we be paid? Current or price as it was at time or reward?
(Slush)
Thank you for your understanding

basically blaming the exchange(s) they were attempting to use...

exactly. they should just remove it and eliminate the thought anyone might have of getting the merged mining reward.

Hi,

I just tested slushpool.
Yesterday, i pointed one miner to slush, and slowly it starded to go up to the 13.5 th.
So, this morning i added 7 more miners, mut right now, they all only give 9.xx th each... ?
i'm missing about 25Th on 8 miners, thats quite a lot.

When i take a look at the graph, the green line isapprox. 100-105th, but the other lines are way below that.

Anyone that can chime in to point me in the right direction what this might be?

Slushpool sucks...
Miners with LPm firmware do 2/3rd of their hashrate.
Same goes for 650 fixed frequency firmware.
Autotune firmware appears to be working...


sssstttrrrrrrrange.... Huh

I have been mining on slush for long and has never seen this much unluckiness.
Any one has any idea why slushpool luck has dropped so bad in past few weeks?
Last 250 blocks luck shows around 90%
Network hashrate dropped, difficulty dropped, so our luck should have gained right?

I really like slushpool and braiins team and dont want to migrate to other pools, but with this luck and the market decline it gets me to think about pools with PPLNS/PPS+ options.

The luck is not bad historically speaking. I've been through 45% luck periods. If you leave the pool now guess what will happen, the luck will return right as you leave Wink - it's the nature of luck, it's totally random.

Network hashrate dropped, difficulty dropped previously and will drop in 4 days, but just because there are fewer miners competing for the block reward doesn't mean that each miner is more likely to solve a block than before. Your chances of solving a block will once again be purely random. What does increase in this scenario is your total reward per block - ie you get a bigger chunk of the block reward and thus make more btc.

If I'm wrong on this hopefully someone will correct me.

PPLNS will not help with your luck woes, only PPS will. If you cannot stomach the variance then move to a PPS pool and pay a higher fee or forsake the block fees (like Antpool).

45% luck for last 250 blocks?
And have you ever seen last 250 with 155% to recover that bad luck?

Since I have been mining on slush I have never seen last 250 luck goes higher than 105% and its been over two or three weeks that our luck has turned its back on us Sad


Seems like "Stan Lee's Lucky Man" lucky bracelet has turned black Wink

Thanks for the added/edited info,
I was thinking when less miners mines and thus less hashrate competing to solve a block then we have higher chance to solve it as slush hashrate not dropped as much as the whole network.

As I said before I like slush pretty much and for sure not gonna leave it to join Antpool

Yes I have seen 250 block luck over 100%+ for brief periods of time. Over the long term all pool variance (ie luck) will tend to 100%  - it's just that you have to wait long enough for it to average out. Over an infinite period of time all variance must be 100% and cannot be higher unless you know a way to break the laws of mathematics.
