A mining pool considering offering silver as a payout method?  Let me know if you need a North American supplier/distributor slush.

Seeing that pricewiese, bitcoinmint.US and I am not that far apart, I am even able to beat him for coins in quantities >3 (thats without insurance, however)

I offer shipping discounts for multiple item orders but I have to be contacted directly due to bit-pay not yet supporting this feature.  Wink

So is the plan for gold "mining" still on ? I think it will decrease BTC value.

bulanula: Firstly, there's no obvious reason why it should do anything with price. People who want to cash out will cash out with or without gold coins offer. And I was only asking for possible demand - it does not mean I'll implement it second day, for various reason.

I still don't think that 30% of pool users will really use this payout method, because most of them don't realize how much cost of "single coin every week" will cost them.

Not to mention the fact that only 65 people have voted, and I'm sure there are a hell of a lot more people using the pool.  Not very likely that we got a representative sampling of the entire community of pool users..

bitcoinmint and me are bouncing some ideas off each other, lets see where that takes us.
might be that we can present you with some interesting propositions - the man has an open mind and hes an entrepreneur. only good can come from this.

I finally added luckmeter to stats page. one day, seven day and one month average is calculated. Keep in mind that especially one day average is very inaccurate, because is calculated only from few last blocks.

Btw 30day average shows that pool had really crippled luck, we had few 10+ mil rounds and added variance thanks to ddos and pool outage. But last 7 days looks pretty nice :-).

I think it has just as much potential to cause a rise in price.  For example, lets say someone usually cashes out all of his bitcoins that he receives from the pool everyday.  Then that person decides he wants a gold coin so he sets his account to pay out gold.  He's now saving up bitcoins until he has enough for the coin.  Could you imagine if every miner on slush's pool suddenly started saving up 600+ bitcoins?  That would be very bullish for the bitcoin price.

That would be great! But I don't think that too much people will do this...

Slush, I have been noticing that on fast blocks i'm only getting paid 85% of the normal ones.
Check blocks 8776, 8777 and 8778.

Can you tell me by your logs or something if i'm having connection problem or anything else? Here everything seems normal, i don't see connection problems.


EDIT: something went seriously wrong with block 8841. According to my shares, i should have been payed 7x more than i was.

well, if "only" a dozen or so... depends on how big they are with their mining operations.
A 1GH/s miner would probably need a cuple of days to save up to a coin.
Someone with 30+GH/s wouldnt. It all depends.

I took off in the middle of the night to correct low hashing power. Ended up upgrading the kernel and miner version so along with waiting to see how it turned out I was away for a couple hours. My GF is very understanding Cheesy

It looks like something has got broken.
What's the probability of a lot of short blocks to be followed by several very long in a row?

Everything is ok. What was the probability that pool had >130% luck for many days before?

I don't know. But are you saying that there's some magical bug thanks to which pool is sometimes finding blocks in very short rounds? Wink Now it is just averaging out previous luck.

Yeah, the one day luck was up over 150% for a while there.  I can deal with a few long rounds after that...

Silver would be a very cool idea if this gets implemented  Smiley
