I'm sure this must have been proposed already, and maybe it doesn't work, but if you added a "finders keepers" option to the pool; that would give you more BTC if you find a block from others that also tick that box, I would certainly tick it! It doesn't have to be much, or maybe you can have multiple values so you will get extra BTC when you find a block in proportion to the others that are in your group. Say 5%, 25% and 50%...

Everyone that doesn't tick the box are unaffected so this would only add a little more "game" for the "perceived as lucky".

Also what about adding cometstream to stratum so that we can pool over port 80?

When you consider how small Slush pools hashrate distribution is, you'll realise what "luck" is when we find those blocks with 1 - 3hr round times. THAT is luck, what is happening now is normal. Want to test your own luck? Mine with 6th, you could find a block in a couple months or 33 years.

I'm dedicated to this pool. Yeah its a gamble, but I invested some of my BTC in extra mining power. If we find a block in the 17hrs, I'll be happy. If not, I won't be fussed about it. The whole bitcoin thing is becoming a bigger gamble every day. Stand to lose more than you earn. People are still expecting huge bounces. I won't expect any bounce. I'll just do what I can afford until its over.

@kkurtmann Well, it's just simpler to have everything synchronize over on port, now you need two solutions: 1 webserver and then 1 socketserver with memory leaks, file descriptor leaks, thread management, etc. Basically it's the way we should all go; microservices HTTP-only is a good standard so firewalls and scaling works the same way everywhere, language agnostic, so we can focus on the product with different tools; because developers want them, not because some guy with a suit & tie had a bad morning and needed complexity to keep his job.

@SargeR33 @pekatete I can tell you never found 2 blocks in one week after earning only like 2 BTC on the pool... 50 vs. 2 that's like 2500% and it feels wrong. After all being lucky is the meaning of life. If you mine you already won the lottery! Wink

What on earth are you on about? I know the bitcoin price is tanking like there's no tomorow, but care to say that again in plain English?

I suggested the following in the development corner:
At the end of each week give everyone that found one or more confirmed blocks during the week a 0.3 BTC bonus. Could even add a weekly bonus section to "Hall of Fame" or a separate "Bonus Awards" section to the pool stats. This would be a special acknowledgement that will especially make small miners (who do not find blocks often or will never make current "Hall of Fame") happy while not significantly reducing the payout to other pool members.

Been waiting for "admin review" for about 2 months.

Dunno, mining is volatile and not on a set schedule.  I thought it was a nice holiday reward.   Smiley

its not about people turning off they miners …. Its about these data centers shutting down … they have not only electricity costs but facility costs … thats what needs to happen… END of story … the home miners need to hang in there and send these cloud mining operations to bankruptcy court .

Tell me about it .... 26hrs+ and counting ... what a day! that and the bitcoin price .... I don't blame you man, at least on slush, but if the block were ticking over, I'd keep mining up until the entire system imploded or I went broke, whichever first.

Current CDF according to slush's stats is 99.6%.  That means you'd expect a block this long 1 out of every 250 rounds on average.

EDIT:  To clarify, this is a counter to the "something is fishy/something is up" idiots above.  While 1 in 250 might sound rare, that's probably in the once every 4-6 weeks range [on average].
