NEWS: NTime-Roll support slashes stale and invalid rates!
Abcpool has been running quite stable for a while now, and judging from the forum posts most people are mining with us without any issues.
Since scaling up our systems a few weeks back we've worked on an area that affects both performance and earnings: NTime-Roll support. This behavior ensures less system load and even quicker response times, especially when it matters most: when the countless Long Pollers trigger all at once. We've been watching the stale and invalid rates since we deployed this new version several hours ago, and we are pleasantly surprised the rates have dramatically improved:
Old stale rate: ~0.2% - ~0.6%
Old invalid rate: ~0.3% - ~0.8%
New stale rate: ~0.06%
New invalid rate: ~0.23%
That's right: on average, our members are now generating bitcoins with 0%-fee for 99.77% of their submitted shares. That's a number that is certainly among the best any pool has to offer, if not the
Thanks for your continued support, and happy mining everyone!
NB: If you are experiencing invalid rates higher than 0.5%, please make sure you are running the latest version of your miner software.
