Yea, this guy has some serious fire power, the stats sink and rise, but maybe he is still building his farm ... think it might go higher yet. The pool has risen by 100TPhs over the last couple of weeks (but many people add Ghs every day).

So, we all see lower payouts, but that's mining for you. Not sure my power board will stand many more Ants before a melt down.

Difficulty is about to rise again ... so what ... in for the long haul  Cheesy  (Fingers crossed)

Yeah, holy balls did he bring some serious hashing power in....it really dropped my payout stats....Considering I am a little guy (relatively) I only had about 50 GH/s until I repurposed my old Block 333 block erupters to mine peercoin....(now I am at 46 GH/s)....but I have a 30 GH/s cube coming this week that I got for a steal....... but damn, talk about adding firepower......

Yup, lost a bit also, need 2gh to make up for it, ant U1's are buying themselves at 1 a month now, each new one makes the payouts faster.
At some point, I will save coins for a S1 hoping by then they come down in price (even used ones are still way to high for me).

Edit: still having more power = faster blocks so I think we are just dandy, quite happy here.

Someone adding hashpower to the pool drops your payout per block, but gives you blocks more frequently. It doesn't affect your average payout, but lowers the variance. So you are not losing money when someone adds hashpower to the pool.

When the difficulty goes up, your average income goes down though. That happens after hashpower is added globally, to any pool.

I know, its just a bit discouraging for NOOBs like myself who don't have a lot of hash power to see their percentage drop....I put a small cash investment intially for some cheap mining gear (333 erupters and not very many) and used the coin mined to upgrade gear...now I have a couple U1s a nanofury, and 3 blades going, with a cube coming in this week...
  Dont get me wrong I have nothing against freddy coming in to give us a tremendous boost to our hashing power,  and may speed up some of the longer blocks we have been running into....

Quick question:  A few months ago, there was a capability on the BitMinter web site, where one could click on a solved block reference and there would be list of all BitMinter users with their relative 'ranking' - meaning, I could figure out that I was #XXXX out of YYYY users, based on my share of that solved block.

I don't seem to be able to find that list anymore for each solved block. Has it been removed or am I just having a senior moment and not looking in the right place?

Hi, Doc removed the page that you are on about. I found it really handy to see where I was for my hash power coins wise. I knew what I got per block at my hash level and if I say doubled it I could look at someones stats that were at the hash level I was thinking of increasing to and see what a difference it would make.

I moved pools to keep this feature from another pool provider. Shame as I liked Bitminter. But I liked this feature as I am always expanding my gear.

It was the slowest loading page on the website. Someone noticed this and started hammering it from an amazon cloud server.

I've been thinking of adding something else instead. Maybe show the 10 shifts that were used to calculate payments, with the same info that is on the shifts page today for each shift. Maybe add in some sort of summary of the shifts at the end, and show somewhere how much you got paid for that block.

That's just an idea so far. What kind of information would you like to see on the block page (which you get when clicking a block on the blocks list)?

Good news everyone!

We are almost guaranteed to have a run of awesome luck for a couple of days ..... because my interweb went down overnight and I've got a shitty shift score to purge.  Undecided



and hey Doc, done any thinking about adding new merge coins?

Sorry Freddy, I thought you were him, I just misread I guess...it happens....but yeah this FeFox brought a whole new meaning to hash power......he's going to rule the pool it will be sometime before anyone else gets anywhere near him....plus can you imagine the electric bill, it takes a lot of watts to run 40TH/s of equipment....

At the moment I think only namecoin is worth anything (of the coins that support merged mining with bitcoin).

Yah but we were mining it when it was worth pennies, huntercoin and mazacoin were two of the new mergables that were mentioned earlier, would just be nice to have a stash in case they reach higher levels of popularity, before world+dog is in on it.

I did the same thing with those pages.  Since I've just added a AntMiner S1, I've moved up into the 250-275 Ghps range; would have liked to see how that ranked with everyone else.  I found it quite useful.

It was the slowest loading page on the website. Someone noticed this and started hammering it from an amazon cloud server.

That idea is good.  Alternatively, some pools show the top 50 contributors (like you do today), but also with "my ranking" (depending on who you are).  For example, 1-50 are shown as they are today, then say, I might be #1250 at my latest GHash rate, if I'm logged in.  That could be similarly useful, although, not as much as the original ranking of all users.  I get it that it was slow and unfortunately exploited.  Statistics / reporting / analysis is always good.

Hiya, Doc.

This may have been clarified previously but I'm compelled to ask based on your recent comment about difficulty.

If I understand difficulty correctly it's the sole corrective factor available to the Bitcoin mining algorithm to offset ever-increasing hashing power.  Changes in difficulty result from a review of total hashing power every 2160 blocks so difficulty is reactive not proactive and throttling not punitive.  The authors' goal was to produce/release one block of 25 BTC every 10 mins through the year 2140 so why, other than imbalances in hashing power among individuals and pools, would reward blocks decrease with increases in difficulty?  Don't those steps downward on the rewards page primarily indicate a disproportionate increase of hashing power elsewhere rather than an increase in the difficulty factor itself?  Someone or some pool will receive 25BTC every 10 mins for 126 more years so I'm confused by your reward graph's asymptotic approach toward zero in the short time I've participated here.

Again forgive me if I'm splitting hairs or if I'm just plain wrong but I'm trying to get the sequence of events straight and better understand the value proposition of long-term mining. Where do you predict Bitminter will be in 20 years?

Thanks for your work on Bitminter and for your active participation in this forum.
