I have some important BTC things to do first. Then I will have a look at LTC. I may add it.

Right, this seems pretty dead on. Try turning off your bitcoind (if you're on 0.8.1 anyway, which by your post I'm assuming that's your problem) when the lag seems pretty bad to see if it goes away like we did. We also realized that this started happening about the same time we upgraded to 0.8.1. Only thing is that your lag stops when you stop mining?

Well, turns out that mining had nothing to do with it...Just a coincidence that led me to believe so.  Closing the 0.8.0 client makes my high latency go away almost instantly.

Thanks so much to Doc and farfie for bringing up this topic.  The high latency was driving me nuts when gaming!

Just started mining on bitminter. Switched over from btcguild. Doing well so far.

Looking forward to LTC support being added.

I would have to say lite coin support would be very helpful to many of us. My 69Gh in asics is due July or Aug. 

Having litecoin would help a lot

Litecoin in my view is only a liability for bitminter. Also it's the botnet currency of choise : (

   Like white phantom I would want to know why you do not like litecoins or terra coins.

 I have a 7000 usd gpu farm pushing 8.7Gh soon to be outdated gear for  my mining. 

   Both lite coins and terra coins are restrictive to  asics and welcome gpus.   Yeah I have asics on order but I am waiting like many others. Having a lite coin or terra coin option for my gpus would be nice.  I have been a top 50 miner with bit miner for 8 months I mine with bitminter alone and have always donated 2 to 4 %  At one time I gave 98 % of my Name coins to help this pool.   

 Having the  litecoin/ terracoin setup  will help a lot of the gpu miners that have supported  the good Doctor H. and his pool. 

 To be honest My programming skills are a C  or C+ at best  so an easy setup to mine lite or terra coins will have importance to me.  One more thing  AMD would have a vested interest in litecoin and or terracoin doing well as it would help their sales of gpus.

In this threads I wrote a few replies.

I use this calculator and this setup will net me 6 bucks a day at todays price of 112 a coin along todays
difficulty of 8,900,000. While this does not seem like a lot 180 a month means this 4 card setup would reach payout in about 5 or 6 months. I know difficulty is rising but litecoins and TRC are setup as
non-Asic or gpu only. This means switching to litecoins will allow you to mine with gpus for a few more years.
Most of us do not want a 8 pc / 16 gpu garage like I have right now, but I am making 1000 a month the last 2 months. So this may stay around for a while.

As I said in my earlier post AMD would do well to buy bitcoins to keep the price up. The entire worth of bitcoins is about 1.2 billion maybe 1.4 billiion around 11.5 million coins at about 110 usd. So if AMD buys coins to keep the price up it is a low cost way to entice people into amd gpus. If AMD were to buy 10,000 coins at 150 usd that would be 1.5 million dollars if the price rose to 160-170 due to this AMD would have a great 'commercial' to entice people to switch to bit coins. If Amd then paid a developer (Maybe a million) to setup a quality pool to make an easy litecoin and Terracoin pool for dummies much like www.bitminter.com is an easy pool for bitcoins > They would further enhance the value of their gpus once ASICS take over bitcoin mining.

Hey AMD read this and do it. It certainly would help boost your gpu sales.

While some may laugh this is a sound low cost plan for AMD to boost sales. So AMD if you try it and it works you can send me a check for boosting your sales ! Just kidding. I will make out just fine if you do it my idea as I will mine litecoins, Terra Coins."

If you could tell me why the above is 'bad' for bitminter please explain your position,,

I certainly don't see the problem with LTC support at BitMinter.  I think it's a fantastic idea.  However, I'm afraid TRC is not ASIC proof in the least.  Avalons have already been used for TRC once or twice, causing a lot of complaints among its mining community.  I'm just speaking from my experience listening to traders in the BTC-e trollbox who complained about their incredibly slow confirmations (like 2-3 hours for one) for about a week.  Here's a thread that discusses ASIC being a threat to TRC:

More thigs to go wrong if both mining are done on the same server. Attracting botnets to mine being one, they will burn up a lot of bandwith and other server resources even with miners that are running a negative profit after electricity... and after impementing should Dr. Haribo choose to remove it some day the vengeful ddos is a given.

No problem. If what was said in an earlier post was true, hopefully they'll add a way to cap the upload/download on bitcoin-qt in the settings or something. Could QoS or use other software to do it, but I'd still rather just see the feature implemented. Sorry for OT discussion.

Terracoin uses the same hash than Bitcoin: sha256d. Litecoin uses scrypt. Avalon can only do sha256d.

Trade BTC for €/$ at bitcoin.de (referral), it's cheaper and faster (acts as escrow and lets the buyers do bank transfers).

I was using info from another miner on a different site about terra coins so if they are friendly to asic mining then screw them.
 Back to lite coins  once Asics come out in force there will be a lot of us with a ton of gpu gear.

How hard is it to setup litecoins on a second server independent of the BTC end?
So if the lite coin gets ddos the bit coin would not be ddos.
 I  do not know.

 But The good Doc H may have an idea. I have a limited amount of time and have had a lot of trouble getting a litecoin miner setup. If there was a website like this to setup and mine lite coins it would be very popular. I would think world wide there are a boat load (tens of thousands) of gpu miners that would want to do this with a bitminter sister site. It would also be a smart thing on the part of AMD to contact the Doctor and offer support to set a litecoin server up.  So if there is someone from AMD reading this do something to help your companies sales. I have helped  20 or 30 people setup a miner/gamer rig all of them would switch to lite coins today if bitminter had a sister site liteminter.

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

BitMinter to take 1% fee - still most profitable of top 10 pools

BitMinter has been zero fee for a long time. Unfortunately this is not a sustainable way to run a pool because most miners set their donation to 0%.

We will be moving to a 1% fee on saturday 20th of april.

We are still the most profitable of the big pools, due to low fee, paying out namecoins (6% extra income), paying out income from transaction fees (1% to 2% extra income) and being safe from pool hopping.

What happens on the 20th of april:
- 1% mining fee takes effect (BTC and NMC)
- Prepay perk cost reduced to 1.5% (from 2%)
- Users with prepay on will have their donation reduced by 0.5%. Set it back up afterwards if you like.
- New users will have a 1.5% default donation (rather than 2%)

There will also be more perks coming, but I can't promise any timeframe on that.


When will this happen or is it already?

I had a lot of things I needed to do today so the planned changes are a bit behind schedule.

All changes except the 1% fee are in effect. Fee will be set up in a moment.
