one of my miners was down, I think maybe a bad usb connector on miner or pc side. Strange that it causes that many rejects, because I was mining at 90gh/s (3 miners) instead of 120gh with all 4. I'll check the internet connection.

I really like bitminter. The openId login is great. However I gotta ask if there is any plans of a Google 2step verification being added to address changes / withdrawls.

From what I can see 2-step verification and 2-factor authentication on Google seems to be the same thing?

You can use that for logging in at BitMinter. I believe also Verisign and possibly other OpenID identity providers support 2-factor auth.

I'm not sure if there is a way for me to force you to re-authenticate through Google again with 2-factor when you want to make critical changes to your account. If you are already logged in with Google it just bounces you back to the BitMinter site without any need to log in. It's an interesting idea though - I'll have to look into that further.

I always use bitminter as my fallback pool and the client is a well built stable app works on almost all machines I have tried it on  Cheesy

Hi,

Not seen this before but under blocks confirmations column I am seeing processing for block 253346.

Any idea what this is indicating?

Thanks,

Block is stale. I just found out you can click on the hight (253346) number. Second stale block in a few days. Even with the prepaid perk you get nothing.

Sometimes stale work would have created a block. I think BitMinter is the only pool that shows those "could have been" blocks. Maybe it's better to remove that, as it just has a negative psychological effect. Wink

Hi

Very new to mining and the world of Bitcoins in general, but the concept looks interesting enough to have spent most of yesterday reading up and playing with Bitminter and cgminer.

Wanted to say that for an utter newbie Bitminter is fantastic, I was looking into the whether my various laptops had GPUs or not (2 do, 2 don't) and trying to get the number of shaders from hardware reference pages to put into cgminer, but as my hardware awareness is low I was struggling.  Bitminter just picked up the hardware and configured itself.

Have got 3 Dells & a Macbook Air all pumping away with BitMinter so far and am just lining up the next couple of old Dells.  I'm not going to make much as only have 21Mhps in total so far to contribute, but I'm not going to spend any cash on ASIC machines after 1 day of tinkering.

I know most will scoff at my output and say it isn't worth it, but all I need to say is Free Electricity.  All I need to make sure is not overdo the laptops that I need for work and blow them up. 

A little disappointed that I didn't discover all this a year ago as I had an air conditioned server room with a few unused rack servers that I could have made use of, now I just have a corner of mostly empty office and bunch of old laptops. On the laptops that are not used for everyday work I'll get them running Ubuntu off a stick and leave them in the corner and hope the noise doesn't put the boss off.  Will set up vnc or something so I can control them all from home as it makes no sense to spend £5 on petrol just to restart a 200khps slab.

I do have a couple of feature requests:
1 - After 1 day of reading up on Bitcoins and now obviously being an expert  Wink Litecoins seem to be gaining momentum and profitability for the smalltime miner as the big ASIC racks hoover up everything in their path and ramp up the difficulty.  Any chance Bitminter will support Litecoins?

2 - Is there any way to add a flag on the worker page that says if the worker is alive?  Would it just be obvious from the changing numbers?  With such low powered hardware are my workers in less contact or are they in constant contact the same way a phone contacts a mobile or phone mail app contacts the mail server?

3 - Any chance of an iOS app to monitor workers and the account?

Cheers

It is being considered. However I am quite busy with important things with the existing pool. Adding any big features like that will have to wait a bit.

2 - Is there any way to add a flag on the worker page that says if the worker is alive?  Would it just be obvious from the changing numbers?  With such low powered hardware are my workers in less contact or are they in constant contact the same way a phone contacts a mobile or phone mail app contacts the mail server?

On the worker page if it shows a hashrate then it is alive. With slow workers like you have currently though, the website isn't able to estimate a hashrate. It bases the estimates on how often you send in a proof of work, which is too seldom with slow workers, so it thinks you stopped mining. But yeah, if the numbers are changing, like after waiting 30 sec you refresh and the accepted proofs of work went up, then it is working. With a slow CPU miner you may have to wait a couple hours for any change to show though.

Idle/failed worker notifications by email is being tested now. It basically just needs an interface on the website so you can configure it. However it won't work with slow workers for which the hashrate estimate is too unreliable.

3 - Any chance of an iOS app to monitor workers and the account?

There are already apps to monitor workers and balances. You find them under "tools" -> "third party apps" in the website menu.

Hello Folks,

I am new to the BTC mining scene and I am planning to put a small BTC mining rig with a raspberry pi and 5/6  ASICminer USB Block Erupter to begin with.

I know this question might have been asked and addressed already, however I could not find a reliable source and here I am.

Anyone knows a reliable ASICminer USB Block Erupter reseller selling in UK / Europe for a fair price?

I am based in UK and it'd be great if I could find a reseller UK based for quick and painless shipping.

Thanks

honestly, check eBay.com for miners under $50 us, often with free shipping.  Or check the marketplace here at the forum. Cool

So I've been trying different pools and I decided to try this one. I wanted to check and make sure I wasn't missing anything. I've been mining with bitminter now for 6 hours. I have yet to be paid anything and it looks like no blocks have been discovered since I joined, is this true? Do I have a setting broken?

Welcome to BitMinter Smiley

It can take a few hours sometimes before we find a new block.

You can see all our blocks here: https://bitminter.com/blocks
You can see live what's going on here: https://bitminter.com/livestats/big

I posted some info about payouts here:

So the current block is 9+ hours old. And this is not the first 7+ hour block you guys have had in the last 48 hours. I thought Slush was having bad luck.

The time to find a block depends on the hashrate too. Since Slush's pool has higher hashrate they will find blocks more often on average.

In the beginning, when this pool had just started out, it could take two weeks to find a block.

Many don't understand how a pool's hashrate affects them. This can be useful reading: http://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/10731/mining-pool-hashrate-effect-on-a-miners-income

So basically, luck will alter "the number of blocks one of your shift effort will be paid for" instead of the usual immediate payback..? Is there a big variance there in case of very bad lucks?

I am trying to figure out if this is a good thing or a bad thing for newbie miners, as opposed to Slush's or Eligius' methods.

The effect from good or bad luck can be considerable over a short time span. Over more time it evens out.

I am trying to figure out if this is a good thing or a bad thing for newbie miners, as opposed to Slush's or Eligius' methods.

Slush's pool has variance too.

I don't think I like Slush's.

The way score are assigned, it can mean you mine for nothing for hours, being that the only interesting part of the work is at the end. I know it is meant to prevent from hopping and ending with zero hashrate to complete a block, but it virtually mean that the initial work is useless, and someone hopping in at the end would score higher than someone cutting off just before completion no matter how long it had been working.

Eligius' method somehow guarantee work will get rewarded even in case of bad luck, but every share is worth less than it could elsewhere. Helps when there's lots of bad luck, but if the pool would be having pure good luck for a while, it wouldn't turn out as extraneous BTC for miners.

Now, paying with shifts is somewhat more obscure to figure out. Whoever came up with this idea had a lot to think about. I guess the best is to try it out, which is what I am doing today & observing the end results.




Is the number of blocks each shifts will be rewarded for somewhat the the same in the long run, or is there lots of variance there? For instance, is the math made so a very unlucky shift could get zero blocks while a very lucky one could see 10+ blocks?


BTW I am still new to mining, and am just very interested in the whole mechanics behind everything bitcoin.
