I don't get it, sorry. You don't want an external device (like the Zeus Miner) to work for the pool?
I'd accept the Bitminter-Mining-Tool, too, but I thought it might be possible to let the "zeus" do the work for me.

I still don't get it, you mention Client software (miners) on your page.
Software used by the workers that were active within the last 24 hours.

All Bitcoin mining machines are supported. All Bitcoin mining clients (software) are supported.

But ZeusMiner Blizzard is a machine for making Litecoin. Bitminter is a pool for making Bitcoin.

No worries. If you have any bitcoin hardware or buy any in the future, give Bitminter a try. Smiley

Hi all ..... a week old newbie here and my first post .... hehe, please be gentle Smiley

I've been trying to get my head around everything, stage by stage.

I first tried out various wallets, found one I liked.

Then I tried out various pools, again, found one I liked and cracked on getting both my laptops mining using onboard GPU and the GUIminer software. I only went for GUIminer as I wasnt sure about command prompt things, had a quick try with bfgminer and cgminer but couldnt get em working, so initially struck with GUIminer.  Everything seemed to be working well, my shares were showing up in the pool and I was receiving confirmed BTC payouts (albeit a tiny fraction of a BTC, but at least everything was showing up).

So, move onto the next stage I thought and bought a little USB 336MH/s block eruptor. Again, this was only for testing, I realised from the start that I'd need to get a decent hardware miner, probably a couple of Antminer S3's Huh
 
Anyway, got the USB stick and drivers working and showing up in windows (win7 on one machine, win8 on other) but it wouldnt show up in the GUIminer drop down. Had another play around with BFGminer and CGminer but my asic usb wasnt found, so again I gave up with those two.

So yesterday I stumble upon Bitminter and its own little app ..... very nice!!! Got it all up and running in 5 minutes. The asic USB and both laptops GPU's are mining, giving a total of 364Mhps  (335mhps + 18mhps + 11mhps) ..... all seems fine ......

EXCEPT ......

I've left both laptops running through the night and don't seem to have earnt any btc or fraction thereof. I realised that I'm still woefully lacking in Mhps and that will be solved end of the month with the S3's, but even when I mined with just a single laptop GPU, getting 15Mhps I showed up 0.00000018 BTC after one night (that was at Slush's).

As per things I've read earlier in this thread I've gone to 'my account' and 'workers' ...... Ghps = 0, proofs of work accepted = 6008
In 'my account' 'transaction history' it shows balance 0 BTC and 0.00001367 NMC. Now, the fact that NMC's are showing up in my account must mean that my mining software (bitminter) is talking to the pool ..... what am I missing Huh

Thanks in advance Smiley

Hi and welcome to the pool Smiley

You get paid when blocks are found. Sometimes we find the next block quickly, other times it takes longer.

Blocks we have found: https://bitminter.com/blocks

Live stats: https://bitminter.com/livestats/big

Hi folks!

I just got bfgminer working on a RHEL 7 GPU instance (g2.2xlarge) in AWS.  I have detailed the steps I followed in this blog post:

http://josephecombs.tumblr.com/post/102730864351/how-to-mine-bitcoin-on-aws

I have two main questions:

1.) How (or, after what period of time) can I confirm that the work being done on my instance is being logged to my bitminter username (jcombs)

2.) the "top" command in linux is saying that bfgminer is using 100% CPU.  The monitoring tab in the EC2 dashboard says that CPU utilization is at 12%.  I assume this is because bfgminer is using 1/8 available cores. This brings me to a few questions:

a.) How can I be sure that bfgminer is actually using the GPU and not just a cpu core?
b.) How can I tell bfgminer to use all available cores on the CPU?

Thank you for reading!

You can see your work registered on the workers page, under "my account" -> "workers" in the website menu. Also on the shifts page https://bitminter.com/shifts and for the current round in the live stats at https://bitminter.com/livestats/big

Unfortunately mining has move to specialized ASIC hardware.

Mining on CPU ended in 2011 and GPU ended in 2013. You earn less than the electricity costs, so the more you mine the more money you lose. And it is so slow you never reach the minimum cash out amount, so you end up with nothing - just burning electricity.

Here is a list of ASIC mining machines:

Thank you for the response!

I was definitely expecting to lose money.  I have a ton of AWS credit and wanted to see how many pennies on the dollar I could get with this project.

Do you (or have you heard) a back of the envelope guess at the rate for doing this with a GPU in this fashion?  Ten cents on the dollar? Worse?

Much much worse. Google "bitcoin mining calculator" and see.

Hi, i'm totally new to bitmining so don't mock me  Grin

I have a silly question, I'm in a place where I don't have to pay electricity at all, and I started mining with my laptop GPU getting around 33Mhps where as I can leave it open 24/7. Is it worth it? Not making huge loads of money, but a penny or so?

No, it's not worth it. Mining on CPU and GPU is over, for two reasons.

1. You earn less than the electricity costs. So the more you mine, the more money you lose.

2. It is so slow that you never earn enough to reach the minimum cash out amount for any pool. So you actually get nothing. You just burn electricity.

You need ASIC to mine. You can try it for a couple hours on GPU to find out how mining works. But that's all it is good for.

33Mhps will give you (the equivalent of) 1 cent of a $US IN TWO MONTHS! ( or 0.000025 BTC in two months)
You'll have better chance of finding more money just by walking in the streets and looking down! :-)

newbie miner here Running at around 1.5 th.Been 8 shifts now with 0 payout all zeros now.i understand that when pool find a block we get paid but 8 shifts with 0 payout I am not going to be able to afford it.This happened here a month ago as well really hard blocks?I am going to have to give up mining or go to another pool or just mine different sha256s and convert them over?this is getting a bit to expensive.I am  happy when I get paid but lately that seems to be farther and farther between.It's cutting into the profits big time.

We had awesome payouts lately. Take a look at the rewards graph at https://bitminter.com/stats/rewards

If you have lots of good luck followed by a little bad luck that means you were lucky and made a big profit, not that you took massive losses.

Try to look at the big picture (we're winning big the last couple weeks) and not focus on every isolated moment of bad luck (we had some hours of bad luck too). Otherwise you will always feel like you are losing, and mining will not be much fun.

Agreed Dr Haribo love this pool its where I started bout 6 months ago after a dream I had I didnt even know about bitcoins or cryptos now Im full into it I dont want to quit and want to keep mining love it even just for a hobby.These really tuff blocks really cut into the profits or not just that but just expensive period.Ill stick it through for awhile though.Our internet bill was forgotten to be paid so internet was down for 3 weeks and thats not good when the diff increased to 40 bil.Yes I remember the long block time then 3 blocks right after another pretty awesome in that respect doc. thats what I get for letting others take care of important business for me.Ill just do it myself from now on that 3 weeks of being down really hurt lol

Help! Can anyone offer any advice?

I am running an antminer s1 from behind a corporate firewall. I can connect to bitminter pool via ports 80 and 443 only. Status is showing alive.

However, I am not getting any accepted blocks and they are all showing as rejected. Huh Huh

The miner works fine at home on my own router.

To complicate things .. I am running awesome miner with some block eruptors on usb on my laptop. These can connect fine to the bitmintr pool and all is working ok.

So it leads me to believe that it is something to do with the antminer setup.

Could it be down to the speed of the antminer compared to the usb asics?

I have been looking at ways to best circumvent the corporate firewall by perhaps using a proxy or ssh tunnel. But I do not know how to set up.

Any advice would be great! Smiley

Make sure you use stratum+tcp://mint.bitminter.com:443 in this case. Don't use port 80. You can use getblocktemplate on port 80, but you're probably on stratum.
