Today we are pleased to announce the launch of Galaxy Mining Pool.

www.galaxy-mining.com

- Stratum mining interface.
- VARDIFF (Target rate of 1 share every 4 seconds).
- PPLNS reward system (window length: X=2).
- Hop-proof - optimal rewards for miners.
- Transaction fees distributed to miners.
- Custom built software.
- Https secured website.
- DDoS protected.
- Easy to use UI.
- Two APIs for monitoring (JSON format).
- Running on fast & reliable server infrastructure.
- IRC channel #galaxy-mining (on the Freenode network).

The pool fee will be 1% for the first six months of operation, and then it will revert to the normal 2% fee on January 1 2014.

SPECIAL INTRODUCTORY OFFER A:

For the first 500 million shares submitted to the pool, each share will be awarded 5 Satoshis (0.00000005 BTC).
This is a bonus PPS reward, on top of the regular PPLNS rewards.

Bonus rewards do not rely on blocks being found. They are paid directly to your confirmed balance as you submit shares.

SPECIAL INTRODUCTORY OFFER B:

For the first 5 rounds, the miner that finds the block will receive a 2 BTC bonus reward.

Good luck to you and your your pool. Love to see another Aussie pool op.

You may need a recruiting strategy to increase your pool's hash rate. If you have the funds, you could introduce PPS.

I'm not familiar with PPNLS.

Watching,

Cheers QG.

Getting the hash rate up will be a challenge.

The pool will hopefully be offering an introductory offer in a week or so. I'll say more about it when the time comes.

To get the ball rolling, Galaxy Mining Pool is offering the following Special Introductory Offer:

For the first 500 million shares submitted to the pool, each share will be awarded 5 Satoshis (0.00000005 BTC).
This is a bonus PPS reward, on top of the regular PPLNS rewards.

Bonus rewards do not rely on blocks being found. They are paid directly to your confirmed balance as you submit shares.

This is free money, on top of the normal block rewards, so get mining!

A number of new features have been added over the past week, including an API for monitoring your workers and a chart of the pool's total hash rate.

The new network difficulty has made finding a block even harder, so we need miners more then ever.

We are now 1.5 million shares into the Special Offer (which applies to the first 500 million shares, see above).

In order to jump-start the pool, we are offering a second Special Introductory Offer (in addition to the first one):

For the first 5 rounds, the miner that finds the block will receive a 2 BTC bonus reward.

Pool total hash rate:   26,693.222 Mhash/sec   (16 miners)
Your total hash rate:   8,754.575 Mhash/sec


lol......


Pool total hash rate:   28,368.259 Mhash/sec   (16 miners)
Your total hash rate:   9,527.669 Mhash/sec

You currently don't get paid for such shares. I will try to find out why these are happening. What miner are you using (and what version)?
Looks like you had 32 such shares within a short space of time, but most of your shares are fine.

How can I be "above target"?

How can I be "above target"?

Miner software is:
https://github.com/TheSeven/Modular-Python-Bitcoin-Miner?source=cc

"above target" means that the submitted hash wasn't "below the target" number (which is the goal with Bitcoin mining).

Your issue seems to happen when VARDIFF kicks in, and the stratum-server tells your miner that there is a new share-difficulty.
It is possible that the mining software continues (for a short period of time) to submit shares at the "old" difficulty, and the server is rightly rejecting such shares (in which case there's nothing to worry about really).
At this stage, all I can suggest is for you to try another miner (e.g. cgminer) to see if the problem goes away.

I will report any further findings here.

Something is not right with the vardiff.
I'm not seeing such problems on other pools... possibly some sort of temp option to disable vardiff , so I can keep mining whilst you look into it?

The issue that razorfishsl was having is unique to his situation, and does not affect any other miners.
The current mining system/software the he's running is more suited to a user-settable share difficulty, rather than dynamic server-controlled vardiff.

I would be interested in merged mining?

I don't have any immediate plans to implement merged mining, although it is something that I might consider in the future.

I'm giving this pool a try. The rates are good, but I think not having merged mining is a significant drawback since several other pools offer it. People who are used to getting merged NMC will be a lot less likely to switch to a pool without it. The good rates are a plus though.
