I've been mining on Slush's pool lately, but I'm beginning to feel I'm being cheated, as my payouts are drastically lower than I estimate. I'm just curious as to which pools you use, and how they have been working out for you.

If you love me, you'd give me a Satoshi!

I've been mining on rfcpool

Well run pool, nicely organized web site, coders always hang in their irc channel.

Very happy with the payout system. It's PPLNS.

The PPLNS payout system seems really neat. If I get entirely fed up with slush, I'll give it a try.

Eligius, abcpool.co, deepbit (backup), btcpool24, arsbitcoin. Usually evenly dividing up the hashing power between them in 3-5 ghash clusters.
If there's new PPS pools I try those out for a few weeks. I'll consider rfcpool because they have PPLNS now.

I will try anything new that has pure PPS or PPLNS.

You don't get cheated. Prob is you (and strangely many others) put yourself in a disadvantage with Proportional Rewards.

Join a PPS or PPLNS pool and you do not have those problems.

PPLNS'ing @ RFCPOOL.com

I moved to http://www.rfcpool.com lately, must say i quite like it there!

Im a statwhore, and would like to see how my GHashies are put to work.
Their stats own everyother pool out there, and i've seen some!

I was doing PPS before, but i cant see that being sustainable over the long run, so i switched over to PPLNS, which RFC reverted too.
Must say, after a few shorties, we are having a little bit of a bigger one, which can only mean it will get so much better after that!

@46-55GH now, so we could use some more extra hashies!

I'm PPLNS'ing @ RFCPOOL.com, need more GHashies!

I use BTC Guild.

Never had any issues and Eleuthria he is always on IRC. And his new poolsetup for me is fantastic 30ms ping times.

oh I use CGminer

BTC Guild and Bitcoins.lc are good.

Have you read vladimir's "miner survival guide" ?
He has a rather decent analysis of whether a pool is cheating its miners or not.
btcguild does not seem to come out in a very good light

yep....

Still staying with BTCG.

https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=7760.msg501630#msg501630

anything but pure proportional will twist your own luck beyond all recognition, if you want a predictable payout, then trade your luck for zero variance and use something *PPS with a low fee and/or low rejected shares

Now that I've started testing Deepbit, I've noticed that my stales are ridiculously low, as in .22% compared to the 2% at slush. As for payouts, I've only been running it for a night, so it's too early, but I will be going to rfc if I become unhappy. I don't have the hashing power to effectively go to proportional mining. Unless I'm wrong about that though, I just thought that proportional was more for large mining operations.

I think im even more spoiled @ RFCpool.com

Last round i got 0.002% stales for a pretty long block.
If your miners are in order, your stales should be even lower there.

I myself have moved from Slush to rfcpool.com. I had so many issues with Slush's pool i felt I was being cheated. But that could be my server talking to their server.

I am very happy with rfcpool. Specially since I have gotten so much help in the irc channel. Great people.

As far as trust it means a lot. There website makes things very transparent. So you know your getting what you should be getting. Not stolen hashes or such. Very up to date.

Looks like RFC seems to be the way to go right now. I guess I'll start playing with it after I cash out of Deepbit

UPDATE!!!!1!1!!1one!

I've move to rfcpool and I like love it! In a mere 300 shares, I already have about .009 BTC, which is significantly higher than the other PPS pools I've used. Not to mention 0% stales (so far). The UI is also very nice.


+1 to all of you that recommended RFCpool

PS- The excessive "!"'s and etc were a little much, but I really like the pool. Thanks for the suggestions. Thread is still open for discussion though.

If you love me, you'd give me a Satoshi!

Great to have you join. I have tried other pools and had connection issues and poor results. So far this has been very well done.

Well in the last block, I made about 1.5 times my estimated amount, that's also after my donation. I also can't knock that in ~4000 shares, I've gotten 0 stales.

http://hashrate.tk we have 150slc bounty to the first person to bring us 10Gh/s and our stales are super low. All we ask is that people try it Smiley

Normally I'd be all for that, but RFCpool has me hooked. I won't go into specifics though.

The 150SLC is a darn good deal, but I have a mere <200 m/hash and would barely dent the Hash rate. I'll take a look into it if I can put together a bit of a better rig.
