Great pool. Using it as we speak. But I wish it was this easy to mine LTC and other alts as well (struggling with cgminer for LTC right now)

Further to my last another machine

Geforce 7600 GS this is also not picking up the gpu.
I know these are old and produce very little but when you have lots of them and they are on anyway...
Running on XP with up2date drivers.

Any chance of it working ?

I have a 2008 Mac sitting here but bitminter doesn't find the gpu

Graphics  ATI Radeon HD 2600 Pro

Os X 10.8.3

Is there any way it can be made to see it ?

Thanks

dod

As far as I know the 2600 doesn't have OpenCL support.  My late 2007 iMac has the same GPU and it's not supported.  I think, (not 100%) that the 4870 was the first OpenCL compat. GPU in the MacPro.  Look for a cheap GPU upgrade on eBay for that machine.
I put a 5870 in my 2008 MacPro, you can find them on eBay for a reasonable price.. Also as of 10.8.3 6xxx and 7xxx cards work with the proper power connectors.
This thread might help...

what is with those "shifts-work "?
After few days I get 0.0025 per block(btc), everywhere else I get double.

I've noticed this as well.  It appears that if you don't have your miner running 24/7 you will not get a good rate of return from Bitminter.  If I am reading it correctly it adds up 10 shifts that are each about 46 minutes long and then gives you a percentage based on your average through those 10 shifts soooo, you have to mine for around 8  hours straight with no interruptions before you are maxing out your earnings.  I'm curious who benefits from the slack?  I game with this pc besides mining about 4/5's of the day so it looks like I am going to have to pass on bitminter and his great software and layout.

You have the right idea, it makes the income from the pool much more stable, though it does involve higher risk. The major upside from this is that the pool is 100% hopper safe and we don't have to worry about any body hopping in just before the block is solved. As a gamer I still use bitminter for two reasons:

1. The miners simplicity and efficiency are unrivaled. Seriously, nothing comes close.
2. The high risk, high gain has benefited me very well over the past year leaving me, on average, with higher profit over time.


For a third reason, Dr. Haribo, the owner and operator, is simply the best. He is constantly working towards a better Bitminter for us and charger nothing in return. Over the past year I've watched this pool grow and because of Dr. Haribo's willingness to listen to users and his skill, the pool has simply become the best out there for most miners.


With all of that said, if you can only mine for a few hours a day then a PPS pool might be better for short term profits.

If I've helped you, consider a small donation. Everything helps.

I think his Hash rate has increased enough over the past few weeks to warrant a shorter number of shifts on the average.  Slush's pool offers about double the reward for me when I have some my cards turned off for part of the day based on my experiment from last night.   I just wish Slush hadn't done away with merged mining.

I was thinking about this over dinner.  How does pool hopping hurt anyone?  if it takes 1,000,000 shares to get a block and someone jumps in at the end and contributes 25 shares before the block is found and they are rewarded based on 25/1,000,000.  What is the problem with this and why do such drastic measures need to be taken to prevent it?

Ok so i just started mining with Bit Minter about 12hrs ago.  I can from Mt. Red and before that Bitclockers (prior to DDoS).  My hash rate is about 4000 Mh/s.  I am seeing very low payouts with this pool, as i would expect with its payout system.  I have been mining for a year and a half, and was wondering as a 24/7 dedicated miner, if this pool is wiorth my while?  Will my pay outs increase to about 0.2 BTC per day or more in time, as this was my average payout in other pools.  I have to SC ASIC's miners on the way (hopefully) and would like to know if i shoud stay or go based on my current hash rate?

That is the problem, i am mining 24/7. I was thinking after few days, reward will come to normal value but it didnt. I have just ~500Mhash not 10Ghash to play around like this.
I like the system, pool,... it looks ok, but i can't be a part of this.

I got about 25% better returns from Slush's pool.

I noticed that another .025 bitcoins went in my account from yesterday after I moved my equipment back to Slush.   Still 25% less than I am getting on Slush's pool, but I think there may be some delay in the accounting that makes it look worse than it is.

I am very new to mining and I think this is the best mining pool. My username is yantrader and I tried today to configure my hubby's laptop to mine a few hours but somehow when the cleint tries to open the java script doesn't work. I want to save up to buy a desktop to mine as I only have a laptop and a friend of mine said I can't mine on the laptop all day otherwise it will fry the cpu so I can only do a few hours a day at the moment. If I buy a desktop how many hours can I mine on it daily and what else would I need to get for it apart from an asic which I can't afford yet to make it grow bitcoins faster? Also how do we get some free bitcoins you said you are giving away is that for heaving mining? Smiley I am recommending this to all my friends to join this pool who are noobs like me as well. I will stick with this pool and not pool hop because I also like the chat feature and DHaribo has been so helpful in explaining to a noob like me how stuff works and I got paid very fast my namecoin earnings Iinto my NMC wallet. Thank you for begin such an honest MINING POOL.. Smiley Now waiting to reach my first bitcoin cash out over the coming week hopefully.

I was thinking about this over dinner.  How does pool hopping hurt anyone?

Pool hopping is not possible on BitMinter. Yes, pool hopping hurts someone. The pool hopper get more than their fair share of the mining income. Everyone else who are not pool hopping get less than their fair share. Don't mine in a hoppable pool, there will be a hidden "fee" to pool hoppers.

Ok so i just started mining with Bit Minter about 12hrs ago. I am seeing very low payouts with this pool, as i would expect with its payout system.

The BitMinter payout system has the highest payouts of any pool over time. There are two things you need to consider.

1: After you did some work it takes time for the work to go through 10 shifts and get fully paid. Now the hash rate is up but earlier it took 10 hours from work was done until it was fully paid. No wonder after 12 hours that your pay is low. Wait 10 more hours and the rest of your pay will arrive.

2: PPLNS has variance. Some days we have high pay and some days we have low pay. You have to measure over more than 1 day to compare pools. If you want the highest payout over time, BitMinter is your best bet. If you need to be absolutely sure you don't get low pay at a bad moment when you must pay your bills, then go with a PPS pool. It will cost you some income in high fees, but that's what you have to pay for the service of PPS. As they say, it's expensive to be poor.

I noticed that another .025 bitcoins went in my account from yesterday after I moved my equipment back to Slush.   Still 25% less than I am getting on Slush's pool, but I think there may be some delay in the accounting that makes it look worse than it is.

Yes, your work is eligible for pay from blocks for quite a while after you stop mining. You also can't compare pools with variance for a day or a few hours.

With Slush's pool you pay 2% fee. You lose some income to pool hoppers. Do you still get namecoins? Are transaction fee income paid out? Slush's pool also has variance, like BitMinter.

If you can handle the pay going up and down a bit from day to day, BitMinter has the highest payout of any pool.

It would be nice also if you put a little clock at the top of your site that showed the current time in UTC.  (Guessing that's what the timestamps are on your site).  That way it's easier to do the math in my head when payout times are etc...

In larger pools you get less per block, but you get blocks more often.

If you want a really high pay per block you can try solo mining. You'll get over 25 BTC per block, but you won't get many blocks.

Hi,

i know this is a weird question but does bitminter start on startup without the user having to log in?
