Shifts are currently 3.5 billion *per shift*, 35 billion for the 10 open shifts.

Holy cow, had no idea.

Thanks Eleuhria just noticed it - nice response time Smiley

Holy cow, had no idea.

My goal is, even if BTC Guild shrinks as more and more massive private farms come online taking a larger chunk of the mining pie, to keep our shift N value at least 10% higher than network difficulty.  This provides a total 'N' value of 11x difficulty, which is a length I don't believe BTC Guild has ever seen a block take (I think it has only happened once out of any pool in the last 3 years).  Obviously there is always a balance of maturation time for shares vs variance

Those are great stats.
It's also good to know your pool transactions are safe too.
It's the only pool I use for BTC.  Smiley

Minor Irritant feedback

The little tooltip message that pops up when the mouse is over the pool luck graph at bottom of PPLNS page uses 24 hour time format
The rest of that page uses am/pm format

Trivial I know, but it caused me some confusion at start when new to BTC Guild, so perhaps when developers are not launching new scrypt pools, or updating servers or dealing with DOS attacks, falsified transactions, etc, etc etc

Smiley

Updated to 12-hour time format.

Funny enough, BTC Guild hasn't been affected by transaction malleability.  Maybe it's my accounting background, or maybe it's common sense, but my system doesn't rely on your transaction ID getting confirmations before marking it as paid on your account.  If I push out a payout, the payout has already been marked as sent in my system before the actual push to bitcoind.  You can fix a failed payout.  You can't fix/reverse a double payout.


Congrats eleuthria and to all of us miners!  Smiley



please explain to me why this is a good thing?

 Huh

BTC Guild represents one of (if not the) largest group of miners.  We have fallen from 1st place in terms of raw speed.  However, GHash.io's last statement was that 45% of their speed was their private farm (cex.io).  BTC Guild itself has no private hash rate.  My ASIC collection consists of a single Avalon and a dozen USB Block Erupters, none of which are currently running.  Eligius has passed BTC Guild on occasion in the last week, because it now has 2 users that represent approximately 35-40% of its entire pool speed.  BTC Guild has some power users, yes, but the largest one is not even 8% of the pool.  The top 5 users represent approximately 20% of the pool, and then it drops *drastically* after that.

Yep.  It's keeping me awake at 2 AM right now, even though I know I'm powerless to do anything about it.

I have to say I love BTC Guild myself.  It was the first pool I mined with when I started 2 months ago and I kept coming back to it.  The only other pool I personally would consider mining at, and I did for awhile, would be Eligius.  I use eclipse as failsafe only because I can set my workers for PPS.  I'd like to thank eleuthria for running such a great pool and now that I'm done testing other pools, I'm here for the long haul.  I'd mine at scrypt guild too, but right now my GPUs are pointed to MAX as I find I'm making more there than mining DOGE.

I found one last year with my bfl single right after I got it. Difficulty was 63mil and I had only submitted about 8mil shares. It's mined a lil over 20btc in it's life so it's about even.

But now I have 4 antminers and only have about 190mil shares on this new account. I honestly don't think they will be able to mine 25btc with just these 4 Sad but if they get over 15 I won't feel so bad.

Awesome Smiley.  I've been experiencing the joy of block solving recently on ScryptGuild.  I have my old gaming rig running at ~1 MH/s.  We've been sticking to easier coins until the pool goes fully public.

If anybody is wanting to mine ScryptCoins, join #scryptguild on Freenode IRC.  The scrypt pool has been progressing much faster than originally planned.  This evening the system was updated to be able to add additional coins on the fly with no pool restarts.  You point at a single URL and can change what coins you mine via the website without losing a single hash (no disconnects/interruptions, it just works).  Automatic coin switching is also being worked on.  Currently it's manually controlled by me if you're set to Automatic, but by tonight it will have the first version of automatic profit-based switching.

This sounds pretty sweet.  I've got a good amount of scrypt hashpower that I'd love to point your way once it's public.

Might be going public beta with it in a day or two.  Profit switching has been running well all night, we're at the point where the pool needs more speed in order to add more coins and profit switch to harder ones.
