Wow, I haven't been paying attention and noticed we hit over 230% luck. That's the highest in a long while, right?

I've been wondering if I should temporarily leave the pool after any over 200% luck days. It seems we always have a short bad luck run afterwards.

That's gambler's fallacy/observational bias.  Had you left after the 200% luck spike, you would have missed out on consistently > 100% rewards for the following 12 hours, and what will be *another* 200% [or more] luck spike once the next 3 shifts close.


EDIT:  The chart is going to have a record high spike in luck once the next 3 shifts close.  As of this post there are 3 shifts with 12 blocks paid out to them already, and all 3 are still open to being paid more.  The previous luck spike was a record and that was from a set of 3x 11-block shifts in a row.

I know you're right and understand it. Just saying it feels that way. And actually I would only leave after the next quick spike that seems to happen after the 200+ spikes. I had the same feeling around nov 6 and dec 11.

Doesn't matter since I probably won't leave anyway. BTCguild is the most stable pool for me. I rarely have any problems with my miners running on your pool.

A few (3) payments failed to process due to the spike in luck yesterday.  Since BTC Guild credits your account after 1 confirmation, but the pool can't actually send funds from those blocks until they have over 100 confirmations, the big spike in luck caused the pool's hot wallet to be emptied of spendable coins until more confirmations came in for our recent blocks.

The failed payments should re-issue in the next 30 minutes.  This *may* happen again due to the luck spike we're having today, it all depends on how many accounts cross an automatic payment threshold at the same time vs the timing of our blocks becoming spendable.

The pool always has full funds to pay all users balances, but only a fraction of those funds are kept in the hot wallet, while the rest are moved into cold storage.

Well it's been fun!

I just shut down a bunch of FrankenJup modules, old Bitfury rigs and an S2. I'll still limp along with my more efficient gear for a few more weeks. They'll add just enough heat so I won't need to use the furnace. After that, I'm done.

Thanks for running a great pool Eleuthria! Even with the current low price of bitcoin, I made a tidy profit over the past 18 months.

Going to be an interesting time going forward.  I'm curious to see whether this huge price decline is going to further centralization to private farms (properly located huge mining farms can keep running at a profit WAY beyond *most* individuals), or bring the balance back towards individuals and pools which are made up individual miners.  So far, it looks like BTC Guild is growing a bit [hashrate and network % both] even though it's quite clear that a number of farms and miners are turning off.  But that may just be people hopping onto the pool after the lucky few days.

Read the "How am I Rewarded" link on the web site.

A: Because it messes up the order in which people normally read text.
Q: Why is top-posting such a bad thing?

An odd question about ID numbers in the splendid Hall of Fame section.
Someone joined my team with an ID number way up at ~1.5 million and I've not seen nearly such a high number before.
Does this mean that many accounts have been created at the Guild?

Also, let's all not talk about l*ck.

A couple months ago the botnet that was being used to try to brute force logins using a database of leaked username+password combinations from other sites got smarter and changed their tactic from trying to log in to trying to register new accounts with usernames from that database, basically letting them know if they at least have half of it right.  As a result, the User ID's got bumped up by about 900k overnight (a few months ago).

Now that the forums are back:  There were 2 sets of rolling restarts earlier today, with each pool server going down for about 5 seconds, though there were always 6-7 pool servers still online to failover to during the restarts.  Most users probably didn't notice the restarts, and the pool's stats before and after restarts seems to confirm that most miners these days will no longer stop functioning properly/failover permanently like they had a tendency to do in the past.

These restarts updated 3 things on each mining server:
1) Updated bitcoind [BTC Guild was a few updates behind, prefering caution to fast upgrades after what happened with 0.8].
2) Updated bitcoind settings to 900,000 byte max blocksize.  BTC Guild previously had this value set at 500KB.
3) Updated to a faster version of Matt Corallo's Relay Network on all servers (some were still using a python version).

It should work just fine?  I don't offer any support for specific devices, but there shouldn't be anything special needed.

Are withdrawals not working for everyone or is it just me?
