And continuing with the API theme - the API has been expanded and will now give you per-worker stats with the API key system.

Getting balances and submitting withdrawal requests through the API will probably come tomorrow.

Couple of updates to first post; API is maturing and getting useful now, we have per-worker stats, user balances and estimated reward, and pool stats APIs all up and live.

Also enabled switching between prop & pps for any user with no shares in the current round so new members can start on PPS right away.

Current long round is long Sad

An addition to our policy: invalid blocks will now be paid out to 1.5% (or more) donators. This is the first perk that actually requires donation, everything else is free.

I came across your pool today, seems like the only other good PPS (I don't really like deepbit that much) so I'm pointing my measly 112 mhash your way now. Smiley

Thanks Smiley

Actually considering dropping proportional. There's two dozen other prop pools out there and I don't think we really add anything new to them. Few people have to guts to do PPS properly, so that might be our USP.

It won't be done without quite a lot of thought and warning for those miners on us with Prop though Smiley

API updated. /api/user/account now contains total_earnings, total_donation and sum of previous payouts.

Also updated it to full precision display (20 decimal places as stored in our database) which you can't get on the website.

Was the last block orphaned?

Blockexplorer link shows nothing and it seems only a couple of PPS users got rewarded.

Ok, we found our first invalid block. We hadn't found one on live before so it didn't know entirely what to do with it.

Updating our scripts to cope with it.

Should all be looking ok now. 1.5% donators have been paid (funds available immediately in confirmed balance), others have zero reward.

Just making it a bit more obvious on the pages that it's invalid.

Correction: fixing PPS payouts in a minute also Smiley

First post cleaned up a little, invalid payouts were mentioned there before but perhaps it was buried in my rambling. It's a bit more concise now.

Trying to scale up our operation to cope with more GH - the last influx of pool hoppers showed us that we didn't scale well enough. I think at our next new block we'll do far better, I've been working on pushpool quite extensively.

I have a question to ask.

How comes the value of a share changed midround on PPS?? It was at .0000275 and has now changed to .0000246!! Thats a bit naughty when we have already started on a block!!

We cant go between pps and proportional mid round so how can the price change??

Any feedback please?

Price change based on difficulty. Difficulty changed mid round and an actual round is only important to prop miner and not PPS since you are working on a per share based and across difficulties the share payout can change and only affects you from share to share.

If you didnt get credited with PPS rewards immediately this would be unfair and wrong but afaik PPS users dont wait for blocks to clear so you got your fair reward at the previous difficulty per share and now the price change only affects shares from new difficulty.

Actually you both have a point here. PPS users rewards are currently calculated and paid on block find, which is wrong. I'm updating this now so they're paid in realtime into confirmed rewards without waiting on blocks, as Clipse says.

As compensation for doing it wrongly so far, the price per share has been put back up to the value before the difficulty change today and will be honoured until we find this block.

Nice one. Cheers. Sorry to have been so pedantic but when i checked this moning I had over 1btc then checked this evening and had like .95 btc and I was like whats gone on here lol.

Cheers for changing it back and keep the site looking as ace as it is. Thats another reason for me to mine with you guys you support your miners

Cheers

Now done - PPS are completely decoupled from blocks as they should be. You get confirmed rewards updated every 5 minutes for the shares you did in the past 5 minutes.

Edit: in addition to this, rfcpool will be discontinuing proportional payouts entirely at some point. The date is undecided but there will be plenty of notice on the website.

Given that I'm inclined towards dumping proportional for being the ancient unfair payout system that it is, I don't really think it's worth putting the coding time in to allow individual workers to change reward systems. It would massively complicate things further than they already are maintaining two reward systems :p

Please, just make a second account.. please Smiley

Block #8 found, and PPS  payouts remained at the previous level as promised.

They've now gone down to what they should be for this difficulty (0.00002461897887581132).
