Turning fees off would probably attract more testers. Wink

New mining pool starting up at bitminter.com

Payouts: Proportional, 2% pool commission, payout every hour

Currently in public beta testing phase. Please throw a miner our way - we need beta testers. Also, any feedback is appreciated.

You can use your old miner if you wish. But in an attempt at making mining easier and more user-friendly, we have built our own miner. Example screenshot, running on an AMD Cayman (yes, it's overclocked):




I'm not sure how many people will pay to beta test your software. There are proven pools with 0% fees. Who wants to risk downtime, issues, stales and then pay a 2% premium to do it.

Now if you're saying people will get better performance with your miner then that might change things. Looks great though. =)

Great idea, guys, thanks. Pool commission turned off. Original post updated.

The miner is fast too, not just good looking.  Wink It is at least faster than poclbm. But I don't want to make any big claims before I test it more. Which are the fastest miners these days that I should compare it against?

CPU mining not really supported yet, though. I don't have a good implementation of that yet.

I was able to sign up, trying out your miner:

2011.06.27 [02:41]  Device [Juniper (#1)] unable to start: Compilation error (code -11 = CL_BUILD_PROGRAM_FAILURE) on Juniper (#1)

 Shocked

If you prefer a different miner, connect it to mint.bitminter.com:8332. The username must be in the form "myname_mymachine", where "myname" is your user name and "mymachine" is the name of one of your registered machines/workers.

This doesnt work. Failed to connect.

OpenID login problems: The easiest way to log in is to click one of the shortcuts instead of typing in your OpenID provider manually. If you have a google or gmail account, just click the little google logo. If you can't see it - turn on javascript. Sorry, no Facebook login yet - I may add that later but since they don't support OpenID it will take some extra work.

Oldminer: The problem you are having with "splash: recv failed" is due to Java not being able to access the server. I should probably add some help pages with solutions for things like that. It may be due to a firewall. For the built-in Windows firewall, I think the first time a Java program tries to access the network, Windows will ask whether to allow it and you just click yes. For other firewalls, things may work differently.

If you need to use a proxy for web access, you can set that up in the Java settings. You can find Java in Control Panel if using Windows. Alternatively, and this works on any operating system, run the command "javaws -viewer". You can run it from the command line on Linux or Mac. Easiest in windows is to hit the start button and type it in there. It opens two windows, just close the "Java Cache Viewer". The other window "Java Control Panel" is where the proxy settings are: under the "General" tab hit the "Network Settings..." button. You can type in your proxy info there. If webpages work in your browser, you may want to just choose "Use browser settings", to let Java access the network the same way.

iopq: Sadly I have not had a chance to test the miner on a Juniper GPU before. It works fine on Cayman and many NVIDIA GPUs. It's weird that the same OpenCL code would compile on some GPUs and not on others. I'll look into it. Would be cool if people who get it running on their GPU could state which GPU they are using and what kind of speed they are getting. You may get slightly higher speed if you hit the button in the lower right of the window, which hides all the fancy gauges so the GPU can focus on actual work. Wink

This doesnt work. Failed to connect.

I haven't tested with all miners yet, so I'm not 100% they will all work. Which miner are you using?

Remember that username, workername and password are all case sensitive.

I just tried it with DiabloMiner:

> ./DiabloMiner-Linux.sh -u DrHaribo_Smurf -p MyPassWord -l http://mint.bitminter.com:8332/
[27.06.11 13:52:07] Started

[27.06.11 13:52:08] Using NVIDIA CUDA OpenCL 1.0 CUDA 4.0.1                 
[27.06.11 13:52:08] Added GeForce 9400 GT (#1) (2 CU, local work size of 512)
mhash 2,7/2,7 | accept: 0 | reject: 0 | hw error: 0

(No, the Smurf is not a kick-ass machine)

Now fixed so poclbm works - thanks iopq! (my pool backend wasn't including "error":null in getwork responses - somehow the miners I tested so far didn't mind)

jdebunt: Not sure what the problem is. Do other WebStart programs work on your machine? Here's a quick one to test:

Quick update:

  • New statistics page listing generated blocks. Not much to see before we mine some blocks.
  • Number of proofs of work delivered by each machine(worker) listed under "my account"
  • Mails less likely to be rejected as spam. If you never got your email confirmation link, go to "my account" and enter your email address again.

I disabled "manual vectors" and the minter software started working
however, it's not as fast as poclbm on my machine
poclbm gives 138mh/s with -w128 -v -f30
