Hey all nice to be here after being treated like crap over at slush's pool for the first two weeks of my mining. Things seem alot more organized over here. I may be new but it cant be good when a pool continually has problems paying out confirmed rewards to its members. But dont say anything about it or else you be crying and then they will throw you a guilt trip for coming over here. It seemed like a business struggling to make payroll every week. Maybe he purposly runs it like crap to drive the newbies away and keep the hashrate low, it seems that group beleives there is to much hashing power here but I think that is stupid. Anyway nice to be here. I do have aquestion on the rewards since it is a little different format here. Im just curious, are the rewards on the pplns stats page for open shifts not reflected in your account balance until it shows in the closed shift section? Also for the rewards,  is that i am getting the block reward AND the shift rewards or is that the shift rewards just add up to the block rewards? Sory just being a noob  Grin

It has been a bit disheartening to see the state of Slush's thread.  It really seems wrong for a thread to have 100s of the most recent pages talking about inaccurate rewards with no word at all from the pool op about it for months.

Open shift rewards are immediately reflected in your balance.  BTC Guild does not make you wait for confirmations or for shifts to be closed.  The reason for the warning at the top of the page is people tend to freak out seeing 0-3 blocks paid and extremely low per-share rates at the top of Open Shifts, which is *normal* because they still have hours worth of time to have extra block rewards split with them.

Your rewards are based purely on shift rewards.  The block reward shown on the dashboard is just go give you an idea of how much your balance has increased with each block solve.

If everything goes according to plan, the new version of the pool server backend code will be getting deployed in the next 48 hours.  I'll be updating the thread as the time gets closer.  The goal is this will be as painless as possible (brief blip and you're on the new backend code).  I'll be running tests tonight locally, and inviting people in IRC with different types of hardware to help make sure it doesn't have any unexpected conflicts with certain software/hardware.

Once the new backend is deployed, the next project on the list is something that's been mentioned in IRC a few times:  Scrypt Guild.

"Scrypt Guild Alpha" is *hopefully* going to be up this weekend, likely just for pure LTC.  But the goal is automatic profit switching among a variety of scrypt coins.  A part of this Stratum Rewrite involves better multi-coin support.  The following is the current list of projects, and expected order:


1) SHA256 Stratum Update
2) Scrypt Guild Alpha (Single Scrypt Coin)
3) SHA256 Merged Mining Update (better NMC support and framework for multiple MM coins like IXC/DVC)
4) Scrypt Guild Beta (Multiple Coin Support, Manual Switching via WebUI)

After that, I'll see which looks faster to implement, DVC/IXC added to BTC Guild, or auto-switching options on Scrypt Guild based on 12-hour weighted average prices.


Ideally, the 4 already identified with a priority will all be complete in under 2 weeks (first two will definitely be done by this weekend), especially with how fast the final pieces are falling into place.

Just LTC for a start?  There are a lot of coins you could pick that'll do better than LTC 90% of the time.

when I first tried BTC mining just a few weeks ago, I was just using my gaming pc. It has a gforce 660, not the greatest I know but It was getting about 80MHs. Could I use this for these scrypt coins?

Certainly. It should be 1order magnitude less. So ~80khash/second

Should be.

The other coins bounce in value so much that I figured I'll pick the "stable" one of the bunch for the Alpha version.

...

When I started mining a year ago I started with Slush.  I always liked Slush's pool but, the continuous problems finally pushed me to switch last Fall.  The block problems, i.e., missing blocks, missing or low rewards, etc, was frustrating enough and was consuming far too much of my time double checking things but, the biggest issue for me was the complete lack of response from Slush in his own Pool's forum thread.  Many have speculated that his Trezor project has interfered with his management of the pool - I don't know.  However, I do know that I value pool OP interaction with and support for their miners.  I can deal with pool problems which, like any service, are going to happen but, it gets tough to tolerate a lack of response from the only person that can provide an answer.

IMHO, the two best pool OPs are you Eleuthria and DrHaribo at Bitminter.  The two of you are consistently engaged in your pool forums in every way and I have never felt "left out in the dark" when there is a pool issue.  As such, BTCG and Bitminter are the only two pools I use any more.

Keep up the good work!!!

If Slush changed the pool's reward method to PPLNS, DGM or PPS, most of the payment issues would go away. He was going to do this well before Trezor was a sparkle in his eye. It's a huge shame, DeepBit going the way it has and Slush's pool seemingly on the way - more parts of the network's history disappearing.

Agreed.  I mined at Slush's from I began mining, but I left for good when things started going a bit wrong - wonky payments and the likes.  It's a shame, it was a good pool.


I'm excited about the new pool stuff - the other merged mining coins (IXC, DVC) should raise in value a little as BTCGuild starts paying those out, I got some when I mined at ghash.io but they didn't have much if any value. 

I'd like to see PeerCoin getting a chance on Guild as well, it's a nice concept.

Slush is planning/programming new reward system and all sorts of other stuff. Hopefully his pool will endure this hard time and be reborned like phoenix :-)

He's been planning/programming that "new" (pretty sure it's just PPLNS or DGM) reward system for the better part of a year if I remember correctly...

In 2012 I posted http://organofcorti.blogspot.com.au/2012/04/41-slushs-pool.html

At the start, I amended the post:

Quote
Note: On Friday 13th April local time,  Slush gave a timeframe of a few days for a change over to a DGM payout method, which is provably fair and quite flexible. If his change over estimate is accurate, the new payout method should be on line sometime next week. Please keep the changeover in mind during my discussion of the exponential payout system.

This had been an option for some time, and even at the end of 2011 I remember him saying he'd change the reward method.

I do normally, but right now it's really inaccurate.  It relies on blockexplorer.com to stay current.  Blockexplorer was stuck for over a week.  It's catching up now, but unfortunately since blockorigin relies on scraping sites to get an accurate picture, it's ending up with a *massive* amount of "Unknown" sources instead of attributing them to GHash.io as well as a couple other pools that it normally would identify properly.

kktyvm. just trying to work out where ghash.io really are now in terms of network %
