The datacenter hosting the BitMinter server is having an outage right now. Let's hope it will be short.

Yeah, the cheat is a bit flaky. Kinda like this car (il tempo gigante) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5ShwTIhGyw

Welcome back, Turbor and the others who returned Smiley

Quick update on the website:
  • You can now add multiple OpenID identities to your bitminter account, go to My Account->Logins in the menus
  • Account balances again shown at the top of the transactions list. This had accidentally disappeared after the changes to how balances are shown on the "account details" page
  • Fixed block and shift timestamps on the full-page livestats page to be UTC timezone like all other timestamps on the website
  • Fixed full-page livestats sometimes playing the "new block" sound when there was no new block

In other news, v1.1.0 of the BitMinter miner is out: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=31163.msg662061#msg662061
And also, today we have 1500 members Smiley

During my first BitMinter session, about 12 hours in:

https://bitminter.com/members/workers:
21,021 accepted, 56 rejected

cgminer status line:
21,218 accepted, 18 rejected

Any thoughts on the big difference in rejected count?

Also... what does "CDF" stand for on the BitMinter live stats page?

Thanks...

If you mouse over "CDF" it gives an explanation. See also: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cumulative_distribution_function

Thanks.  I noticed the dotted underlines and tried to get the hover tips before posting my previous but I guess I didn't  hover long enough.

Now I notice that the hover-tip definition of Difficulty must be incorrect:

Difficulty: "The chance that a proof of work will create a block is 1 divided by the difficulty. ..."

Accepted: "Proofs of work that would create a block at difficulty 1. Most will not actually create a block but serve as a measure of the amount of work done by each user."

Going by that, 100% of proofs of work would create a block at difficulty 1.

Alas, en.bitcoin.it is currently down and I don't know where else to look for a definition of difficulty.

The server is telling the miner that the share is rejected only if it is rejected on both chains (bitcoin and namecoin). I agree this is confusing. Better to report accept/reject to miner based on the bitcoin chain only, perhaps?

Difficulty: "The chance that a proof of work will create a block is 1 divided by the difficulty. ..."

Accepted: "Proofs of work that would create a block at difficulty 1. Most will not actually create a block but serve as a measure of the amount of work done by each user."

Going by that, 100% of proofs of work would create a block at difficulty 1.

Yes, if the bitcoin difficulty was 1 then every proof of work you send to the pool (that is not stale/rejected) would create a new block. The bitcoin difficulty is much higher than 1, though.

Hi,
Can anyone tell me why my expected payout per block is really low on my account at about 5?

A block hasn't been found in 2 days now and I'm consistently contributing about 10% of the hashing power of the pool.

Thanks.

10% of the hashing power would result in 10% of the block reward, being around 5?
edit: and yes, we are having an unlucky block again. On a good day we should find 2 or 3.

Hey mackminer, nice to see some bigger miners at bitminter. DrHaribo should know best about payout. When i was mining at EMC we often had 4000000+ share blocks. Since we are that small, it takes a while to mine down such a block.

Edit: here is the payout for the last block https://bitminter.com/block/btc/159569 looks ok to me ?!

"Successful minting by: DeathAndTaxes"  BOOYAH

As far as the payout.  Remember PPLNS is subject to "luck variance".  If you contribute 10% of hashing power then you get 10% of the rewards.  If that ends up being 3 blocks in one day that is 50*3*10% = 15 BTC per day.  If that ends up being one block in 3 days 50/3*10% = 1.67 BTC

Those are pretty much the two extremes I have seen.  In the long run you will earn 10% of what the pool earns and that works out to ~1 BTC per GH per day (at current difficulty).

3 blocks in little over a day.  I am liking that.   However I no longer makeup 20% of the pool.  Good the pool is growing but I liked pulling down a solid 10 BTC per block.

Look again. ITs 4 blocks in 24 hours now. Actually in less than 12 hours. Gotta be a record.
