Hey guys,

I'm currently mining with Deepbit, however the payout seems to be a lot different from how I calculated it.

Firstly GUIMiner shows that I have more than 1000 shares accepted for each GPU, when Deepbit online shows less than half of that!

Also say for example with this block it says that I contributed
341 Shares out of a total of 1487205 which is 0.0229%

Each block gives out 50 BTC so 0.0229% of that is 0.01145 BTC however in my statistics page it says I only got  0.00450039 which again is half of the proportional amount.

I am not hitting the projected earning amount and I am quite troubled by this. Can anyone help?

Deepbit pays out 48.5BTC per round. ( 341 / 1487205 ) * 48.5 = .01112052 BTC

I can't explain where the missing BTC would be, but as far as shares, guiminer doesn't and can't keep track of pool rounds. You would have to know the exact start and end time of a round (the time between pool block solves), set your computer clock to match the pool's computer clock, and have logged your accepted shares to a log file (using a command-line miner, like phoenix) to verify for yourself how many shares you submitted during a particular round.

The amount you should make mining per day: http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=21541.msg272356#msg272356

If you are mining 24/7, your rewards should be very close to the above formula. If you mine for a few days in a pool and don't seem to be getting what your ghash/s says, try http://www.bitcoins.lc, where after mining for a few hours, you will see exactly how much you are estimated to make a day in your stats (and they don't take 3% of your earnings or charge you to withdraw).

I reset my counter on both the miner and deepbit so they should have similar numbers.

You can't track exactly when a pool round ends by doing that. Statistics showing when a new round starts are intentionally delayed.

Funny, I just asked the same thing about Deepbit last week ---> http://forum.bitcoin.org/index.php?topic=24602.msg305461#msg305461

The numbers just don't add up and it seems that some bitcoins are going missing somewhere...  Even adding up all my rewards do not equal my balance.

Something shady going on here I think!
