TAGMining.Com - The official pool of Tagcoin!

Claimed by Tenice- The first person to find 20 blocks total on the pool will be rewarded with 150TAG!

WEEKLY JACKPOT SYSTEM- outlined in the post below!

PPLNS.
Pool site chat room for logged in miners.
2% pool fee to cover costs and weekly jackpots.
VARDIFF with max difficulty set to 512.
Standard 200 confirms to payout.
Minimum 1TAG for auto-payment.  Auto-payouts on confirmed balances happen every minute for fast payouts!
Stratum on port 3333.
Server located in NYC, NY, USA.

I will personally pay out 20 TAG to the first block finder, 5 TAG to the next 4, and then 2 TAG for the next 5.  These rewards will be paid when the 10th block is confirmed, so if you found multiple blocks I can pay you in one transaction.  *EDIT- Finder's rewards have been claimed, the payouts can be viewed on post 26 of this thread.*

I'm open to all community suggestions.  Let me know how it goes.

If there are any issues, please let me know so I can correct them ASAP.

THE WEEKLY JACKPOT SYSTEM

Update- Users who chose to be anonymous do not get recorded in the round tables with their user name, and therefore do not get tallied at the end of the week.  If you want to be eligible for the jackpot, your account needs to not be anonymous.


I have decided to discontinue the 5 block and 10 block veterans rewards.  You still have until the end of November to claim them, but starting December 1st, they will no longer be honored.  However, they will be replaced with a site-wide weekly jackpot system.  The first jackpot drawing will be held on December 7th, and will be for the prior week starting December 1st.  Specific jackpot details are outlined below:

A weekly drawing will be had, where 100TAG will be split up and given to three random miners every Saturday.  If the pool runs into issues during the week, either global TAG issues or extended pool downtime, the 100TAG will remain in the pool's jackpot fund to carry over until the next week.  There will be a first, second, and third place prize of 50%, 30%, and 20% of the jackpot total.

To be considered for the jackpot, you have to have submitted shares to at least 75% of the blocks mined that week, from 00:00AM UTC Sunday Morning until 12:00PM Saturday afternoon.  I know that's 12 hours shy of a full week, but I'd rather do this Saturday afternoon, than Sunday morning.  I'm sure you'll understand.  I believe this requirement to be fair.  It benefits any miner that sticks with the pool through the week, from the 20MH/s mining farm to the guy mining on an Nvidia GTX 8800.  In addition, if you win a jackpot one week, you can not win the next week's jackpot.  You can however win the jackpot the following week.

For now the drawings will be done manually by me.  I will go through the round tables and find the miners who have met the above requirement.  The users are then put into a spreadsheet, and the 1st, 2nd and 3rd place winners are chosen via a random number function.  When I have the time to sit down and bust out some code, I will make this automated on the site with a running list of who is eligible for that week's drawing.  At least that's how I see it in my head.  If anyone has advanced PHP,SQL and pool backend experience, I might be interested in hiring someone to write the code for this.  Just shoot me a PM.

Any miners caught exploiting the system in any way will have their accounts deleted from the pool, and their outstanding balances on the pool will be taken away.

These rules are subject to change.  What works now might not work a month from now.

If anyone has any questions or suggestions, feel free to let me know via a thread reply or PM.

Thanks for mining with the pool, and as always... GOOD LUCK, MINERS!

-Fuse

We're still looking for that first block... point a miner or two at our pool, and try your luck at getting that 20TAG finder's reward.  There's a total of 50TAG up for grabs for the first 10 block finders.

Come mine with us!

TagMining.Com will be going down for about 20 minutes for maintenance.

I will update this post when it's back up and running.

I apologize for the extended downtime.  After parsing through the logs, it appears that there was an issue with stratum.  I am working at getting it resolved right now.

For the time being, pool mining will be down until further notice.  I could keep it up with long-polling, but I would rather make sure everything is up and running properly.

I know a handful of miners came out and threw some hashing power at the pool.  I want to make sure that I am doing right by them, so if you were mining on the pool, please make sure you update your wallet address on your account.  I will be manually paying out 4 rounds worth of TAG coins by the end of the day today (it is currently 8:24AM PST) for anyone that was mining on the pool.  The payout will be based on what your payout would have been had the pool been operating normally.

I am dedicated to making this pool work.  I know I can't do that without the support of the miners.  I appreciate your time, and I hope that once everything is squared away, you'll come back to mine with me.

Thanks for your patience and understanding,

Fuse

The pool is back up and operational.  After a conversation with Torzy, I have investigated the stratum issues I thought the pool was having.  After parsing through the log files again, it looks like everything was set up correctly, but we were just that unlucky.  I have made a change to the pool difficulty, and it is now 128.

My original statement of paying past miners still stands.  So if you were mining on the pool, please make sure your wallet address is listed by 4PM PST.  I will be sending payments by 5PM.

Thanks,

Fuse

The 4 round compensation has been paid to those of you who had wallet addresses listed on your accounts.  You should receive a payment to your wallet shortly.  It will be 4 times what you would have made this round, rounded up to the nearest whole number, minus a 0.01TAG transfer fee.  Those of you that had payouts less than 1TAG will be compensated normally when a block is found.

I will be contacting one or two of you to get your wallet address.

*ALSO*

With the difficulty at a nice low number right now, I will be upping the reward for the first block found to 30TAG.  You will be paid the reward when the block is found and confirmed.  The other 9 block rewards will remain the same for the time being, and will be paid in full when the 10th block is confirmed.

Good luck, and thanks for mining with us!

Double WooHoo!  I got the very next block. WE ARE ON FIRE!  So much for bad luck. What comes around goes around.  Tongue  After all that waiting, 2 blocks in a row.

Plus I get the 30 TAG reward as the first block finder. All those miners that abandoned the pool, read the fine print in the OP  Grin

Grats, Johndec!  Payment incoming within the hour.

The next 4 blocks reward 5TAG each.  Good luck to anyone mining!

Grats to Johndec for finding another 2 blocks and claiming another 10TAG in finder's rewards!  Keep it up, mate!

The pool fee has been reduced to 0% until the end of the month.  Donations are welcomed, but not necessary.  While I hope it will bring more people to the pool, my main concern will be that it brings the miners back to Tagcoin.  With all the developments with Tagbond and Tagcash, this is an exciting time for the TAG community.  Come be a part of something that isn't just another pump and dump crapcoin.

Thanks,

Fuse

Fuse, I think your mining rig has gone down so I'm pretty much solo!  Might go and mine something else until you get them back online.

To all miners, old and new... I have decided on another 2 block rewards for the pool.

  • Anyone that finds 5 blocks on the pool will be rewarded with a one time veteran's reward of 25TAG.
  • If you find more than 10 blocks on the pool, you receive permanent 0% pool fees.

This in addition to any block rewards you could claim in the next 7 blocks, and your round earnings, this would be a pretty decent payout for anyone mining on Tagmining.com.

The 25TAG veteran's reward will be paid when the user's 5th block is confirmed.

If there's any questions, feel free to PM me.

We've found our 5th block.  I've found it, which means there are still 7 block finder rewards up for grabs.

With these block rewards, the veterans rewards, and the normal block payouts, there is a lot of TAG up for grabs with TAGMining.Com.  Why mine anywhere else?

Grats to Johndec and Esiu for finding blocks 7,8 & 9!  Johndec is 1 block away from earning his veteran's reward of 25TAG!  Good luck, mate!

I have decided to up the bonus for the block finder's rewards.  The 9 rewards that haven't been paid out yet, with 2 still available, will be 10TAG for blocks 2-5 and 5TAG for blocks 6-10.

Once we hit the 10th block, I will evaluate the feasibility of doing a permanent block finder's reward.  I haven't come up with a set amount yet, but I'm thinking something in the 2-5TAG range.  Let me know what you guys think.

Thanks for mining with us, and good luck on the blocks!
