I'm skeptical. First, it was a bit too quick and second why would they not announce it?

well we should get some info soon  Cheesy theswede did say pool mining will be integrated in the next few hours during the last update.

Would 3.x per block mean they represented ( 3.x / 25 ) of slush's entire rate?  That seems unlikely...

There's an option to not generate a payout to an external wallet until you reach x amount of mining revenue.  You're correct that 1/8th of Slush's total hashrate is extremely unlikely.

If they are hashing at 2 TH/s, and their threshold is set to 3.27 BTC, we should see another 3.27 BTC payment within 10 hours (unless Slush is unlucky, which could add a couple of hours to the deadline)

Slush stats report:
Approx. cluster performance (30 min average):    67,212.914 Ghash/s

Some quick rough math... 11% of 25 BTC is 3.25 BTC.

So to earn 3.25 BTC per block, they would need to be hashing at about 11% of the 67,212.914 Ghash/s.
That would be 6,721.2914 GHash/s.

This is about 3x or so more than the 2TH previously mentioned.

Granted, that 2TH was a few weeks ago and they could have more equipment online by now.

Blocks need 100 confirmations to mature and then they are paid out by the pool.

100 confirmations means 16.6 hours at 1 block / 10 min.

Next block to payout on slush is now 31 confirms away.
So 31 * 10 = 310 minutes / 60 = 5.16 hours from now.

Right, but according to their statements, they are setting up the pool right now. Not yesterday.

If the reward is actually for that block, then that reward MUST have come from a miner who knew about LC's address before it was publicly posted.

In fact, even if it's for the most recent confirmed block, that's still 12h old.

If that's the case, it's unlikely this came from anywhere other then labcoin.

Actually, it's not slush finding a block, it's when the next block slush has found hits 100 confirms and can payout.

Ukyo, can you confirm the following? A user is only rewarded, when they contribute to find a block and this block receives at least 100 confirmations to be credited, as shown here: http://mining.bitcoin.cz/stats/?

Right now the newest completely confirmed block is #20087 which was mined on 2013-09-18 at 09:42:58 AM UTC. This is more than 15-16 hours ago.

This doesn't match with the fact that they are not yet mining or started to mine not so long ago:

I am going to let the mining speak for itself when the pool merge is complete. I would like to note however that even with 5+ TH solo-mining it can easily take 2+ days to find a block due to variance, hence the move to pool-mining.

EDIT: Ytterbium might have a point:

If the reward is actually for that block, then that reward MUST have come from a miner who knew about LC's address before it was publicly posted.

So "someone" would have to know about their address for at least 15-16 hours?

This could be quite easily resolved with a simple statement from Labcoin or Swede.  

We shouldn't have to guess about this.

So, they needed to hash on the mining pool more than 17 hours ago to receive 3.x bitcoin, right?

Theswede said they were going to switch to a pool, not they already had, or I'm wrong?

Are you sure about that? Can't you change the payout address at any time?

I mined on Slush for a while.
They pay at every threshold last I know and typically once per block.
Either:
a. random person pointed their 3.x btc payout to LC's address to cause a share price spike and make it up there
b. LC is getting about 3.x btc per block on slush
C. LC had 3.x btc and lowered the threshold to allow a payout of the balance of 3.x btc.

While I would not rule out a, b and c are both promising.

-Ukyo

Option b) has just been ruled out. Slush just solved a block and no payout to Labcoin.

Now a) and c) stay open.
Since this payout is for a block mined  6 hours ago, that's when LC's address is not known to the public.
Therefore, a) is out.

Slush's pool pays out when your account balance crosses whatever threshold you have set.  Your account balance is updated after each block the pool solves reaches 100 confirmations.  3.27 simply means that the threshold was crossed and doesn't really tell you anything about what the potential current hash rate could be.  The threshold is probably set at 3BTC.  You will get a better idea of the hash rate when the next payout shows up.  You can also probably just ask Slush.

This is probably why they wanted to wait 24 hours to show the address - they were hoping they would already have a payout.

This is an interesting quote. If they have 5+ TH, then the 3.XXX BTC per found block on Slush is within reason.

It has been many many moons since I mined on slush although I want to say that you can change the payout address anytime before the site does a payout when a block is confirmed.

Now that's an interesting point and would explain quite a bit.
