Maintenance for the mining server on saturday 13th between 03:00 and 09:00 UTC.

You may get disconnected during this time, but not for long.


Maintenance is being a little bumpier than expected.

For those who are unable to connect at this moment, apologies for the inconvenience, I'll get you back on the pool ASAP.

Use Stratum on port 3333 if at all possible. If mining with an old version of Bitminter client, use the new one.

For some users our website (and all other websites using Cloudflare) is extremely slow right now. Cloudflare is working on fixing this.

Apologies to those who are affected. We should be back to normal soon.

Wow, 4 days now and still in 94% all day.
This means no profit because i get way less than i have to pay the electric bill.
Need to stop mining, i don't wanna stop, but need to...  Embarrassed.

Yeah. The low BTC price at present is proving a problem.  I seem to be seeing a lot of small miners struggling.  Only the Icelandic Crowd are gonna ride this one through if this lasts too long ( as they get cheap electricity ).  I'm still in the game, but it is not proving easy with such a low BTC price.  I paid £1/GH, I run at 1w/GH on both rigs, and I have one of the lowest Electricity prices you can get without having Solar Panels.  And this month I will break even if this first week is anything to go by.   Silk Road did not help at all.

All a bit pants really :/


Maybe see you on the flip-side dude. At least it's been an adventure Smiley

Kind of new to all this but what would be the best way to measure the electrical cost?

Your meter should give you kwh.

This is kw * hours.  So 100w over 24 hrs is (24 * 100 )/1000 = 2.4 units per day = 2.4 kwh per day.

After that you then apply a Tariff based on who your provider is.  And VAT if you're in The UK.  And that's the Electrical Cost for adding your Miner.

For example:

Antminer s3 at 370w is ( 370w * 24 )/1000 = 8.88 units per day.

As long as you make enough BTC to pay off your energy bill you tick over.  Profit is when there is cash left at the end of the month after electricity.  Really you want profit if you use bigger miners, but that's quite hard with the current BTC slump.


If your Electricity Provider is not the cheapest one you can get then shift to a cheaper one.  You won't be able to wing it, as mining uses A LOT of juice.



There are 2 ways to see what your miner drains at the wall per day.  One is to work out how many units your place uses normally per day before you switch it on.  The other is to use a plug-in watt-meter.

The best quality watt meter you will have in the house is most likely the Electricity Meter that came with house.  So I prefer to count units, and use my watt meter as a more general indicator.

I picked up one of these:
http://www.amazon.com/TS-836A-Energy-Voltage-Electricity-Monitor/dp/B00E945SJG/ref=sr_1_1?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1410789476&sr=1-1&keywords=TS-836A+Plug+Power+Meter+Energy+Watt+Voltage+Amps+Meter+with+Electricity+Usage+Monitor%2C+Reduce+Your+Energy+Costs

to check on my power consumption.  The nice thing about it is you can plug in individual miners or a few if they go into one plug and you can check how things change if you swap out older less-efficient power sources for newer, more efficient PSU's.  Trying to figure out what the power draw is on a miner based on how your PSU is supposed to perform isn't a terrible idea but this takes the guess work out.  It's proved really useful to me to insure than I am not overloading individual plugs of circuits in the house.  Its also generally useful around the house to see what various appliances use.  i.e. How much extra power do you use when you turn your window air conditioner from low to high, etc...

While we're discussing non-mining items that are useful to a miner, I have one of these as well:
http://www.amazon.com/Thermometer-AR550-Mini-Infrared/dp/B000MX5Y9C

I use it all the time to check wire temperatures, heat dissipation and to see if some of my units are running hotter than others.

Because i like it to much i put my miner s1 on again.

What i don't understand is that it keeps hopping. I erased my backup pool out of it so it only stays here and still it's hopping from 1 to 3 and back.

It says the pool is alive and few minutes later it jumps for no reason??
I saved and reset and also booted it up, .... and jet again i here it go..... jumping from 1-2-1-2.

What the .... is going on here?? Or is it not just my miner?? Well, i will let it have fun and see it in the morning how it went, but weird..

There is an exploit for old versions of mining software that allowed a man in the middle attack to redirect your hashes somewhere else. You may be getting hit by that.

While I havent mined in years, it breaks my heart to see this pool unable to keep up with the network  Sad
Doc, would it be feasible to work something out with the other old but now small pools to share blocks? Im thinking eligius, btcguild, slush,..

I'm confident that Silk Road was part of that. BTC prices have dropped 40% of late, so people have less room to gamble now.

Looks like the pool is growing again.  Over the last couple of weeks it hit a low of just under 1,000 TH/s and has added over 100 TH/s since.  That's a 10% gain.  Not bad.

what is tough is the power costs to btc price.  lets say you have good gear for power antminer s-3's  6 of them and you get the full 500gh.

which is about 3th at about 2200 watts.  that is 2.2 k watts an hour x 24 = 54 kwatts a day about 1620 in a month .

  at  10 cents it is  162 usd
  at  15 cents it is  283 usd
  at  20 cents it is  324 usd

3th earns about 630 usd before power cost and all other monies.

margins are very tight  waiting on coin say 1 block a week is hard if the money goes towards power and purchases.

the low btc price along with high diff made me leave here. I was here for close to 2 years

I think there are some macro effects for sure but I think the big issue was some bad luck that scared some people off.  There was also a lot of chatter (from idiots) on this forum topic about jumping pools to chase luck.  Lately we've been super lucky (knock on wood) so I hoping to see some of the luck-chasers swing back in. 

I like the idea of merging with  (or better, absorbing) another pool that is in a similar situation to ours.  This is a great pool and the Doc does everything you could hope for to make it as easy as possible to be successful here.

The network has grown far more than 10% over the past few weeks. In fact its currently growing at nearly 3% per day.

Different pools have different features, different fee structure etc. I think thats a good thing, so Im not really advocating merging pools. It would however be an idea to somehow spread the risk. "Pool the pools" Of course that means you have to trust the other pools not to withhold blocks, so Id be very selective, but there are several pools that have been around long enough to trust in that regard.

We haven't hit the point of 1 block per week; a few 3 and 4 day blocks usually followed by a couple of multi-block days.

What I don't understand is the need to instantly convert BTC to dollars. Power bills come once a month, at least where I'm located. Over 30 days, whether you mine at a large pool or a small pool, the average works out to be the same.  Last month we had 28 good blocks and this month we've had 18 so far.

Unless we start getting to a point of regularly taking 1 week to hit a block, most people are going to be fine letting the averages do what they do.
