Are withdrawals not working for everyone or is it just me?
Did you wait at least 30 mins.?  Autopayments happen once an hour. My last payment was about 3 hours ago, no issue for me.

There's been no issues with payouts.  Automatic payouts happen once per hour for amounts over 0.10, twice per hour for amounts under 0.10, and twice per hour for manual withdrawal requests.

EDIT:  Unless you have a different username, your account hasn't had a balance owed in 5 months, the last bit of the balance was withdrawn in August.

Yeah generally we don't stay "below" the luck bar for the whole week!

66.911% / 68.531% / 64.292%

2/3rds luck the past week ugh... payback for the 240% luck hits mid January?  LOL

This is a rather long streak of poor luck: 65% over two weeks?!  Is this a block-withholding attack, are we being scammed (edit: I mean by a larger pool - I have the utmost trust and respect for eleuthria) or is this considered a normal distribution?  I was trying to weather the bad luck but I am running at a loss after electricity alone at these lower-than-normal rewards.  I'm going to have to move my miners.

Everything is running normally, there are no issues with the servers.  People like to throw around withholding attack on every pool having bad luck (plenty of people were talking about the same thing on Eligius).  There is no large scale withholding attack, unless they are doing it in a way that involves a significant number of accounts.

All of the fastest users on the pool (who make up the majority of the pool hash rate) are well within expected block solving rates.  That doesn't mean there isn't withholding, or bugged hardware out there, but it means that the only accounts exhibiting enough hash rate to have a noticeable impact are definitely not withholding blocks.



EDIT:  Just to clarify:  "well within expected block solving rates" does not mean they are functioning at +/- 5% luck, since if that was the case the entire pool would probably be at +/- 5% luck over the last month.  However, there are no accounts that are showing a blocks solved vs blocks expected rate that is severe enough to be a block withholding flag, such as the ones that were discovered last year when a large scale mining farm was discovered to have an error in their miner when dealing with shares resolving to a difficulty greater than a 32-bit value (4.2 billion).

 Thanks for the response.  I was hoping to get the assurance that you were aware of and watching for such things.

Is this dropping in luck comes from more orphaned blocks?

 No.  Mining is probability based so its luck (also called variance).
It doesn't really have anything to do with orphaned blocks.

Well, BTC Guild doesn't include orphan blocks we've found in the luck calculations, which I think most other pools do, but that's not a huge impact.  BTC Guild's orphan rate has always been ~1% (you'll rarely see more than 2 out of the last 200 blocks on the pool stats page as being orphaned).

It's my fault.  I didn't realize one of my 30Gh miners went off.
I got it fired up this morning, so luck should be swinging up to normal.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Warning to New York Residents

The latest draft of the BitLicense proposal is out, and it is even worse than the last one when it comes to pools.  This is an approximately 75-day notice that if you are using the pool from New York, you will need to request your withdrawals and change pools.  Once the comment period ends (approx. 30 days) and the BitLicense is approved, unless it is changed, it will leave a 45-day window before it becomes effective.  Once the 45-day window begins, the pool will be implementing Geo-IP to ban the creation of accounts from New York, and a splash screen will appear to users who already have accounts telling them that the pool is no longer able to serve them and that they have 45 (or less) days to request their withdrawals.  After it becomes effective, the site will no longer be available for access from New York.

How are you going to counter VPN's and such?
I have only gave it a brief read through but I thought they had said they were leaving miners/transaction processing alone?
Note though I do not blame you.

Their direct wording is any business involved in the transmission of Bitcoin to a New York resident requires a license.  Transmission has no exemptions for mining.  Now, if you're *solo mining* in New York, you wouldn't need one, since you're not transmitting to anybody.  If BTC Guild used coinbase payouts, it would also be able to bypass this, with one exception:  There is no pool doing coinbase payouts (other than p2pool which is not exactly a pool) that doesn't require a failsafe wallet to catch dust/errors, and running a manual fix to distribute the dust/errors later is transmission.  Unless BTC Guild turned itself into p2pool by setting a minimum share difficulty high enough that you would always have enough work in the PPLNS system to receive a payout, it's not an option.

Obviously you can't do anything about VPNs, but all accounts will be required to agree to an updated TOS affirming they are not residents of New York, on top of the Geo-IP ban to anybody accessing the site from New York.

Was this the worst payout day ever on BTC Guild?  Huh

2nd worst.  We've had 2 blocks ever last more than 20 hours.  Yesterday's was 23 hours, the record was 25.

Isn't this the negative affect a bitcoin pool has with fewer members?

And they turned Eleuthria into the bitcoin police! So why are you making changes? If they consent to leave, what's the problem? Unless you are protecting yourself from possible fines or a financial slap hosting New Yorkers?

Correct Sam, the last Block found was during shift 22207. All open shifts will go up by 1 when we find the next block.
