NY is one of the least free states in the country, and NYC makes it a lot worse. that alone makes it a shit hole

Homer: New York is a hellhole. And you know how I feel about hellholes.

Under that scenario, the system would be partially hoppable, since if a shift finds 1 or 2 blocks early on, there's a greater than average chance of that shift ending up above expectation by the time it closes.  In shift-based PPLNS, you can't pay blocks to the shift that found them without opening up this hoppable factor.  In the long run, a hopper *would* end up ahead.

Thanks. That makes sense now Smiley

The shift doing the work "18727 in this case" is not paid, it is still growing in shares until it is "Completed". A shift that is still "In Progress" or doing "work" could find 10 blocks but it will not get any applied to it when it "Completes". Thus the 10 "Open Shifts" which are all "Completed". The first "Closed Shift" is not included in the "Luck Chart" because of the likely hood it "May" still have a "Pending Block Waiting for Confirmation". This is a pretty common occurrence. In this case, the first "Closed Shift 18717" was increased by one block, when Block 312297 was "Confirmed". Because it was "Open" when the block 312297 was found but had become the "First", "Closed Shift" before the block was "Confirmed". Thus leaving shift 18727 as the first "Open Shift" but with a Zero when the Block was Confirmed.

Thank you Smiley

AFAIK, it seems Michael believes that it would spread from NY and I guess that's why he's looking at shutdown scenarios but I agree that just because something passes in NY is no reason to close the pool.

Might want to reword that if your talking about a NY rep and not Michael lol

That's easily mis-understood.

You should probably just stick to calling me Eleuthria in order to avoid that confusion.  It even takes me a minute to realize it's referencing me (I have a strong disconnect between online and offline communication).

It's time to cheer up and keep mining. It's always the darkest just before the dawn. The pool has been doing fine lately(look at posts from 2011, they could barely keep the pool online) and I'm sure things will work out with this New York thing. This is a pool not a bank, so hopefully the final laws will be specifically for banks/exchanges.

This is a pool not a bank, so hopefully the final laws will be specifically for banks/exchanges.

Bolded the part that I hope is how the regulation ends up.  It's clear by the way its written that the target business types are services that convert fiat/virtual currency and places that are being advertised as a way to store and spend virtual currencies with a third party.  That's exactly the type of business the NYDFS was designed to regulate.

I know most believe I'm over-reacting, but those who have gotten to know me over the last few years have probably picked up on the fact that I'm extremely conservative when it comes to business and finances, a stark contrast to the general Bitcoin public.  Given the choice of closing the pool down gracefully with everybody getting what they're owed, or leaving it online and risking everything I've earned to date due to a clearly overreaching regulatory body, I will take the approach that doesn't involve risk.  Not to mention everything owed to users, which would be at risk as well.

Oddly enough, the Eleuthria / Eleutheria connection is something I was completely unaware of until a few years ago when somebody asked me about it in #btcguild.  I don't think ckolivas was the first to ask, but it's possible.  The Eleuthria name was something I made up in high school.  I learned C & C++ programming basics by working on MUDs in middle school and high school.  Eleuthria was a name I came up with for one of the games.  For a swords & sorcery fantasy title, generally more vowels = better, and that's where "Eleuthria" came from.  Pronunciation being 'Eee-loo-three-uh' or 'El-oo-three-uh' (it's shifted over the years).

It wasn't my primary handle on the internet though, I'm not quite sure why I used it for Bitcoin.  Had I known I would end up making BTC Guild, I probably would've picked one that wasn't feminine!

here is what happened when new york started telling everyone that if they had more than a weeks worth of food and supplies they could be considered criminals .... the state of arizona passed a new law a few weeks later: http://www.wnd.com/2014/04/no-help-coming-state-prepping-citizens-for-emp-attack/  .. in other words in arizona if we have more than a weeks worth of food and supplies then we are a more responsible citizen to be prepared for an emp attack which would be a time that the arizona govt admits they wouldn't be able to help everyone. just because new york does something doesnt mean the rest of the country is going to follow them.. actually is the opposite, new york is example of everything that is done wrong.

Amazing how our handles all get about. Mine came from a bunch of drunken band members saying "fetus" over and over (no idea why) and when I had to pick a handle I misspelled it in all my genius and ended up with faetos. Oh well. Smiley I really hope things work out ok for the guild. It'd be a shame to see an institution like this get shuttered due to poorly written NY laws. Here in Texas we could care less what they do much less what the federal govt does or says Smiley
