We have lost some serious power over the last couple of weeks.  Any legitimate ideas of what's going on?

We have lost some serious power over the last couple of weeks.  Any legitimate ideas of what's going on?  

It seems quite odd to me when I look at the hash rate on Slush's Pool and BTCGuild, the hash rate has gone down considerably.  However, if you look at the overall network hash rate, it has gone up considerably.  Any thoughts?

Home miners continuing to leave while giant farms (especially in China) continue to come online.  Now that it's getting hot in the northern hemisphere (which is where most home miners are located), it's becoming even more of a loss to keep miners running due to the extra cooling needed if you have them in your home.  They also perform worse at higher ambient temperatures, so home miners are literally just losing some of their hashrate in the warmer weather.


EDIT:  Also the fact that there's not a single pool outside of China that even has 5% of the network anymore makes it a self-fulfilling prophecy that the pools continue to shrink because people can't stand variance.

However, I will say this though:  One miner who had 2.5 PH/s all by their lonesome left, one miner with 1.0 PH/s all by their lonesome has left and another miner with 1.5 PH/s all by their lonesome has left.  One could tell this very easily if they were paying attention to the "Hash Rate Distribution Chart" under Pool Statistics at the bottom of the page.

Hit my payout and then quite a bit of the next due to the larger payout with the low hash rate. I ended up staying on as I had a migraine most of the day and didn't feel like reconfiguring pools. So of course there is another long block.

Has anyone noticed wild up and down hash rate fluctuations on these long blocks? I was watching and when they were hitting the blocks the hash rate was very steady on the two miners I was using on Slush's, with the long block it started going up and down in wild swings in short intervals. I noticed this the last few times they've had a long block. This doesn't impact rejected work, I think I only had 24 rejects in the last 12hrs, but I did notice that my best share stats are considerably lower than typical.

Wow, low hashrate and many hours between blocks.  I have just a 50 ths mine, but have had to cut it back to about 40  due to the heat in my area.  But, I've definitely seen a drop in the payouts.  I may have to switch pools if the whole week ends up this way...

good luck with that.  Not like there are other pools with better luck.  Also, as soon as you switch the blocks are liable to come rolling in.

It's because between the longer blocks you seem to hit 3-4 in short succession which skews the percentage based on the way they compute it. So if a block takes an hour and a half which is 400% and the next block takes 12hrs which would be probably about 50% you'd still end up with something like 200%.

Slow few days hopefully will end soon Smiley

Repeat of last week, slow couple of days hash rate was low so they hit a few blocks so I'm right on the threshold of my payout setting then check it to find this. Then last week I ended up waiting and because of the hash rate they hit a couple and I'm back up to 50%. Probably gonna end up in the same boat again. Guess you can't win them all. I'm not even sure how I should readjust my payout, I had it pretty well timed for 7 days for a while, now it's hard to determine.

It seems worse than the end result really was though. Hash rate was low so I ended up getting payout in almost the same time because the rewards were higher. It just feels worse. When hash rate was in the 15-16 range they were hitting a lot of blocks but at 8.5 I'm getting double the reward (well not technically double by hash rate but I double for me as I did toss another miner on because the payout per block was better).
