Could you please send email notification when one of workers is down during two or more rounds. It would be very useful.

i guess many people don't want NMC because they don't want to set up the client

at vircurex you get online wallets for all possible crypto currencies

the pool directly moves my NMCs to Vircurex and there i can trade it to BTC

0.5% fee per trade, 0.45% if you use a referral at registration
https://vircurex.com/register?referral_id=962-858

yeah sounds like shopping channel Cheesy
before vircurex i used bitparking and there you always have to request an new receive adress for each payout so you always must have a look at the balance of your pool-account because you dont want to send 2 payouts to the same adress, i guess you would only receive the first one

Getting a bunch of invalid blocks again. Probably incorrect, just letting slush know if he hasn't already noticed. Thanx

If you click on the block numbers you get the data. The second invalid from the bottom is orphaned, the others show main chain (in the height listing shown) and as such are showing up as incorrect invalids. Just figured I'd save Slush explaining since I had to have the shown to me before.

I believe its due to blockexplorer that is stuck over 20 blocks back, again.

I am getting much better rewards for short rounds than I used to. Did Slush already implement the new anti-hopping system? Or has there just been less hopping lately?

The current payout system is not DGM. The reason you'e seeing better rewards is probably due to the reduced pool hashrate and increased difficulty. This makes hopping less profitable. The downside is that it significantly increases variance for for fulltime miners, for rounds longer than ~ 0.1 x D.

This doesn't make a lot of sense to me. The smaller the pool, the greater the % lost to hoppers.

At a non-score proportional pool, sure. As you know, the exponential scoring system here is affected by difficulty and pool hashrate. If 'c' remains at 300 when pool hashrate decreases and difficulty increases, the 'hop point' is reduced.

Today, an expected share value of 1 occurs at about 0.1 x D, but two months ago it was about 0.16 x D. The average round profit for a strategic miner decreases as the 'hop point' decreases.

Right, I forgot to take into account the effects of the temporal scale of this pool.

Hello slush pool! I dove in for a swim yesterday for the first time, and I'm curious as to how long it takes to validate blocks and why invalid blocks exist in the first place.

Any update on the double geometric payout?

I'm still working on update, however I had many problems to solve because of that. I even had sources with DGM online (it was that fault update few days ago), but I had to revert it to original sources. Again, I'm working on it and it will be soon...

I'm sorry for those invalid blocks yesterday, it was fixed manually few hours later. Yes, it was because of blockexplorer.com.

Hello werdna94, it takes 100 another blocks to validate freshly mined block, it's part of Bitcoin protocol rules. There are few reasons why block can be invalid: https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Invalid_block

Hi Slush, Hi Everyone,

Is waiting 100 confirmations really necessary? Did you ever saw a block with 10 or even 5 confirmations to be invalid?
Like many, I don't like waiting for confirmations... Blocks get confirmed ~20 hours after being discovered, I think this is way too much waiting...

Also, I hope DGM will come soon, because I don't like hoppers (but I like slush's pool, don't want to switch to ozcoin...)

What's the big deal? Mining is longterm business, couple of hours won't kill you.

Yes, there are pools that pay right after block discovery, but they are doing it at their own risk. Slush's pool is in this way very conservative (and this is IMHO good).

Maybe 50 would be enough, but that makes no difference though - 10 or 20 hours vs. weeks or months of mining....
