For the past 2 weeks or so, I noticed that mining on Slushpool has slowed down for me by 2x. It's reflected on my estimated payout and actual payout. Anyone know what's going on?

I noticed a lot of ppl recommending Kano, so I might give that a try.

What miner(s) are you using?  Have you verified that your hardware is functioning properly?  Check your hardware first, you may have lost a board in your ASIC.

I'm using S9s and everything is functioning tip-top. Plus I have alerts setup if their are any drops on my end.

You know the nature of bitcoin mining is that because of the difficulty increases you will slowly be mining less and less unless you keep buying hardware to keep up.

There have been two difficulty increases in the past few weeks of 4.9% and 13.5%  https://bitcoinwisdom.com/bitcoin/difficulty

The other thing that can affect how much you get paid out regularly is the luck of the pool.

Mine at pools that pay transaction fees & don't mine empty blocks :: kanopool :: ckpool ::

Ah, ok. Well that explains it. It still feels like the difficulty jumped higher than that though. So the difficulty spike applies to mining the btc blockchain in general or just Slushpool's mining pool?
