The one pool that I wouldn't put on that list is Eligius Mining Pool the owner has a reputation see below.

Luke-Jr used the pools hashing power to 51% attack an alt with out the permission or authorization of the people hashing for the pool.
Luke-Jr also injected his personal Bitcoin address black list into Gentoo Linux code base. for religious reasons multiple times.
Luke-Jr also threatened to 51% attack an independent Bitcoin protocol build as a core developer.  (read the whole thread to get a feel for his personality)
Luke-Jr also ripped off CGMiner code without giving credit,  

so no i wouldn't group Eligius with the others on that list, there is a history of abuse of power there.
FYI to the new people here, those are all lies.

CoiledCoin: I used my own hashing and did not perform any actual attacks. I stopped it from working simply from playing by the rules fairly. As a result, the scammers who were planning to pump & dump it got pissy and started making up accusations.

"Blacklists": My spam filter improvements are not substantially different from the ones written by Satoshi and included in the reference code since 0.3, except in terms of effectiveness. They do not target specific entities/people (non-spam sent by the spammers is unaffected), and are thus not blacklists.

bitsofproof: I offered to have Eligius use his alt-node software as a precaution against potential bugs. It would have improved his software's security to do so, and you can clearly see he understood that from his replies on the thread.

cgminer: I have never denied them credit for the parts they actually wrote. They were not significantly involved in FPGA/ASIC mining until approximately the time they decided to fork the project. Even after they forked the project, I continue(d) to clear attribute their improvements when I ported them over (for example, see here). On the contrary, the cgminer developers have since pretended I didn't do anything (such as modularising the code and adding the FPGA/ASIC support foundations, as well as some of the initial drivers, the others of which were written by neither of them).

The above rebuttal was approved since I did not want to delete the original message that caused the thread to derail.  The original post included links for its accusations so anybody could read into it and make up their own mind.  Any further posts on the subject will be deleted to avoid derailing the thread again.



On the brighter side:  At least our last 2 weeks might be a bit lucky, the last few days haven't been half bad.

Well, I only take the inclusion of luke's post of lies as siding with luke's lies.

With that, I would request that eleuthria remove me from his suggestions.

I have no wish to be suggested as an option by a pool that would allow luke's post of lies without my response.

is it still Likes pool?

Anyway I think the situation is rather sad, and not worth bickering about, it's clear the little guys, Us Miners and the pool operators are being superseded by the people investing big money in Bitcoin mining.

So thanks, not only to eleuthria for a fantastic mining pool, it didn't become the biggest for any other reason than it was the best and most open pool to contribute too.

so it is Sad, but also a new binging, no need to focus on the past.  

And thanks to all the other miners, my hashing was worth so much more because you all contributed too.

i just checked my profitability and I'm earning 39% above my energy cost, I'm hanging in there still.  

Thank me in Bits 12MwnzxtprG2mHm3rKdgi7NmJKCypsMMQw

Hi,
What happens to the Namecoin balance if it's less than the minimum...will we be able to withdraw them manually at some point?

The 0.00xxxxx NMC balances will be funding my mansion...made of cardboard....and roughly the size of a car.  These amounts are worth less than half of a penny.
Please accept my current balances of 0.00828663BTC and 0.00021412 NMC at BTC Guild as a donation towards your new mansion.  Maybe you'll be able to upgrade to corrugated cardboard now Tongue

I was thinking he could use that donation to buy a knife  so his mansion can have windows... Wink

because it's worth nothing today, it's worthless to you?
Yet you allowed/continued to support the merged mining.
So why not release it as well. It isn't the point of what it costs, it's the point it belongs to the miner, not you.
Just disable NMC now than if that's how it's going to be.

I used to mine on BTC Guild way back in early 2012.  Sad to see it closing, but refreshing to see an operator actually give notice instead of just disappearing with the held balances.  Good luck to you in the future eleuthria.

I have read about the opinion of different pool owners regarding the Bitcoin QT vs XT debate. But, I could not find your opinion about it. Though you are a closing pool, you were one of the earliest and served successfully over a very long time. So, I'd like to know your opinion about this debate. I am sorry, if you have already stated about it. Then you may please point me to that source.

All user and transaction data goes offline on October 1, 2015.  Actual deletion won't take place until 7 years after the final tax return is filed for the company.  During that time, the data will live on two encrypted drives (one primary, one backup), but will not actually be inside a computer.

So long and thanks for all the fish!

I'm really going to miss this place. It's been a major minor part of my life over the last 4 years.

I'm also curious about where everyone is moving to. The times I've tried other pools, sooner or later I always hit a failover pool. At btcguild this almost never happened. I think if we can get 5ph or more of btcguild's hashrate to all move to the same pool it would really benefit everyone there. As of now I might move to eligius or ghash(ew) or even antpool IDK. Anyone decided on where they are moving to yet?

eleuthria has a list he recommends.

absent from that list is Slush - i think its to do with bad blood and a misunderstanding, the result is Slush was responsible for a DoS attack on BTC Guild.
I was thinking of joining Slush, though if slush was responsible for a DDOS attack I would not want to join that pool anymore, could someone point me towards some evidence of this?

The pool we join in many ways is similar to a form of political representation. which it is why it is so important that we choose a pool that deserves our hashing power. One of the reasons it is such a shame to see btcguild close down, so thank you eleuthria for running this pool for so many years. Smiley

I am sorry, if you have already stated about it. Then you may please point me to that source.

The block size debate is something I've been expecting for years, and it's something I just can't see a great solution to.  The real problem I'm seeing is the larger blocks, once they become normal/blocks actually start using up some of that extra space, is the ability for people to run full nodes.  Similarly, solo mining/p2pool is already at a disadvantage compared to pools/farms running on datacenter quality connections, larger blocks just make it worse.

I've always fallen into the camp that felt like Bitcoin would be a settlement network more than a transactional network.  Services building on top of the chain rather than all trying to live inside of it.  I was very interested in what sidechains could accomplish.  The idea of a separate network for insignificant transactions that then get settled on the main chain as a bulk settlement rather than 10,000 transactions cluttering up the entire network.

Obviously, we haven't gotten something like that ready in time, so we *need* to increase the block size in order for Bitcoin to remain functional in the next few years.
