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.
And even then you likely have all sort of edge cases such as New York residents with miners co-located out of state or even non New York residents with miners co-located in New York. Rather than outright Geo-IP ban you could separate New York to a coinbase payout system separate from the main pool, since there would be less users per block solve dealing with dust may not be a problem.

"Hello eleuthria, I am going to make it very straight forward and short. The question is: Can you implement this https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=952340.msg10437343#msg10437343.I would pay you 1BTC for that and I will pay you extra 0.005BTC0.01 per each 1KB.Please note that transactions that I push will only be valid,standard, and non-double-spend they will be just simple transactions that includes 0 fee and has unconfirmed inputs(which will have to confirmed in one single block).Thank you in advance."

The frontend server used to filter botnet/DDoS traffic got a huge spike this morning and was causing it to drop a lot of incoming connections.  Established mining connections were unaffected, but restarting/disconnecting your miners may have resulted in being unable to get back on.  It should be working normally by now.

No it's not.  Existing connections work, but restarting a minor results in a dead connection (and switch to a backup pool, so the the miners and network connections are OK).

Oops, looks like it was fixed in the last 10 minutes or so... OK now.

BTC Guild will be temporarily pausing automatic and manual payout processing at 4 PM (PST) in order to clean up the hot wallet fragmentation.  This process should take approximately 2-3 hours to complete, after which time any delayed manual or automatic payouts will be processed.  This will not have any impact on the website or mining servers.

UPDATE:  Maintenance window is being postponed to Monday at 4 PM (PST) in order to line it up with a set of mining server rolling restarts.

Are we still going to be able to mine or do we need to point our miners elsewhere?

Miner's will see about a half second of downtime during the restarts.  Based off the last few times restarts have been required, modern software/hardware is able to reconnect fast enough that you wouldn't even know it happened unless you were watching it at that exact moment.

Hi, running an antminer s2 and it says I am mining on the device at 1.7x TH/s however btcguild says I am mining at 1.3x. Is there something going on that I can fix on my end or is it something with the pool? I'll check this post later today.

Thank you,

Check the Elapsed and Difficulty Accepted in the web interface after an hour or 2.

Then do the math:
2^32 * Difficulty Accepted / Elapsed

That is your H/s you are really mining at (ignoring stale or rejected shares)

Just curious, how are you getting an antminer s2 to run at that hashrate? Are you overclocking? Mine run at around 1 TH/s stock.

Hi, that is what the stock speed it running at for me.  I only added my credentials to guild. I did go ahead and remove my backup pools and it rebooted the miner and since that time it has increased from 1.3x th/s to 1.5. however since I started mining it has generally been in the range of 1.7 to 2 th/s. Over the last month, the speed has decreased and my payout has gone from .02btc a day to .008 and I am assuming this was somehow connected. Previously I was earning at max .05 in some cases. So, I am not sure if it's going to go back to .02 and stay steady or not. I am considering turning it off for a little while and let my antminer take a break, I bought it in mid November and it has been running nonstop since the 20th of November~

Hi, is there a location I can convert my results to mh/s etc? I remember seeing one somewhere but I can't seem to find it now.

Thank you for the help.

If you mean a mining calculator - there are a few.

Hi, sorry to post again but I seem to have made a mistake on my post, I previously stated that I bought an s2, what I meant to say was an s4.

Thanks,

I just noticed that it's one of my miners that found one of those blocks!!  But I can't find where in the site I can see the information about what block I found.  I just see I found one, as well as in my miner's interface.  Is that info published somewhere?
