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

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.

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.

Thanks for the response. So, in short, you are supporting XT for now as QT is determined not to increase block size even to 8MB ?

And as you said, that you feel like Bitcoin would be a settlement network, dont you think bitcoin, the unit, will also has a future as store value ?

fair dues for all your hard work, the pool was great for me when I mined there, and you've always been open with the community. Hopefully those skills of yours won't go unrewarded!

Do you think there's any way you'd release the pool code as open source on GitHub so that we can all see how our favourite thing for all those years actually worked?

eleuthria, we understand that BTC Guild is not for sale, but are you interested in selling only the btcguild.com domain?

Kind regards,

Would you sell the code for the website?  Or is there no offer for that sale?

Possibly, but it would not be for sale until 2016.

I do not currently have plans to distribute the code used for the site or the backend.  The frontend relies specifically on BTC Guild's DB schema, which is not remotely close to what any other pool software uses.  The backend is almost entirely uncommented spaghetti code.  Possibly down the road I will make a pass through it to comment and clean it up and open source it.  However, I wouldn't recommend it simply because it would be unsupported, whereas other options (ckpool/eloipool) still have active developers/support.

There might be some proprietary code but it might be nice for someone who wants to run their own pool with "out of the box" software. I've never tried to run my own pool but if I did, I'm fond of the layout where your worker is your payout address.

ie: The no registration sites.

I've never been happy with Python and consider Eloipool mostly a failure in terms of language choice (and would ideally be designed very differently post-getwork era).
Without having seen your code, I can't commit - but I wouldn't rule out possibly maintaining it instead of Eloipool.

I'd suggest use ckpool - much faster block changes - much lower stale work rates - and doesn't use empty blocks to fail at speeding up block changes.

Trying to set a low withdrawal limit I get: "There was an error updating the database. Please try again after a few seconds."

For some reason its displaying as 0.00 yet I didn't set that, and there is still some ~dust sitting in there. Any ideas?

Automatic withdrawals are still 0.01 intervals.  If you want to withdraw dust you have to use the manual withdrawal button on the dashboard.

Ok...

All other things being equal, and a bit of a derail. But... Why the HELL is eleuthria's trust rating so low? Mine is higher, and I mostly just talk.

Because all of my feedback is from people that are "untrusted" in the default trust chain.  And people just don't seem to use the trust system for pool ops.

The trust system seems really arbitrary.

Eleuthria has a trust rating visible to me of 10: -0 / +1

Yours is all 0's.

So what does that mean?

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

yeah, the system is fubar. I just wish that the default people paid more attention... Or it was abolished altogether. On my side it was showing him at 5, and me at 30. Mine probably shouldn't be anywhere near that high, and his should have at least a couple more zeroes.

For what it's worth, I've enjoyed this pool and appreciate all the hard work that has been put into it.  Admittedly, I've not personally mined in a while, but I'm sad to see it come to an end.

eleuthria, I haven't mined at your pool since a bank of HD5970s could make you a lot of coin but when I heard you were closing I felt compelled to stop by and say thanks. You ran the most honest pool I used (I got screwed by a couple of them) and were always available to help with problems. Bitcoin needs more people like you. Best of luck with your future endeavors.

the only people with a trust rating for me are:
kano
OgNasty
nicehash
and
MoreBloodWine

everyone elce is a bold 0

I've had scammers approach me by PM to ask I change my trust rating after they stole Bitcoin from me, so its got to be worth something.

Thank me in Bits 12MwnzxtprG2mHm3rKdgi7NmJKCypsMMQw
