The domain will not be sold until 2016 or later.  I will not be selling it to somebody so they can redirect stratum.btcguild.com to their own server right after the pool shuts off.

Why would anybody think otherwise from a guy that has been a class act for years! Sorry to see the pool shut down but good luck with whatever you do in the future eleuthria.

OK, eleuthria, fair enough. If the domain would be for sale, we would redirect stratum.btcguild.com to our stratum servers, thus provide continuous mining for the current users. We did the same recently after yaamp.com was shut down and users were pleased with this decision, since many of them were using yaamp.com stratum pool as the only pool in the miner configuration ... there are probably many btcguild users with similar configuration (using btcguild as the only pool in the miner configuration) and all of these miners will go into "space-heater-only-mode" Wink after stratums will be shut down. Of course, it's miners responsibility to properly (re)confiugre their miners and like I said we respect eleuthria's decision. Keep on hashing Wink


Kind regards,

It's actually better for Bitcoin if unmanaged miners go "space heater mode" than continue to mine blindly anyway.

Although I'm curious how you would plan to provide continuous mining without Eleuthria being willing to provide the private information of BTCGuild users... Wink

I am leaving you a bit of dust from my 2 btcguild accounts.

Thank you for running a nice pool.

PhilAndIra   account is leaving you Some NMC  0.00649017


Philipma1957 account is leaving you some BTC and NMC


BTC Account Balance   0.00012297

NMC Account Balance  0.00054949

I am hoping you get a few thousand miners to do the same.

Thanks again.

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net...
I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

We haven't missed a payment to a single miner in whole operating history since April 2014. All payments were on time (maybe sometimes delayed up to an hour or two). NiceHash is run as a legit company, acting by the laws and paying taxes. How many BTC pools do that?

The domain will not be sold until 2016 or later.  I will not be selling it to somebody so they can redirect stratum.btcguild.com to their own server right after the pool shuts off.

When a company #1 purchases company #2, it urgently gets all information stored in company #2. This offer is more like a company take over, rather than just domain purchase, with the exception that we are not interested in software; in fact, we are interested only in domain and 2 columns of database (username and btc address) - so we can properly link each mining username with miners BTC address. That way, miners continue to mine and get paid in Bitcoins. Additionally to that, we would transfer all current BTCGuild balances of miners to balances in our system so there is no hassle needed about late withdraws and reaching minimum balances.

The domain will not be sold until 2016 or later.  I will not be selling it to somebody so they can redirect stratum.btcguild.com to their own server right after the pool shuts off.

If you have any doubts regarding our intentions, we can disclose you full details about the company standing behind. We are not some rogue savages trying to steal hashrate as some are trying to present us here. Our intentions are to fully pay all miners of BTCGuild that would continue to mine on BTCGuild domain after closure - every share will be paid in BTC, the way NiceHash has been operating since the beginning.

I'm not actually sure why you don't understand what eleuthria seems to be saying?
(he even stated the 2016 comment before his post quoted)

I take it to mean he doesn't want to do this - pass all his miners to you - or anyone.

So ... what's the relevance of your post except maybe trying to advertise your proxy?

If you connected by direct IP, or use extremely broken DNS caching, the old stratum.btcguild.com server was taken offline days ago. The DNS had been changed to a different IP for over 48 hours before the server was offline, even though the TTL on that subdomain was only 30 minutes.

thats exactly it, greedy to get the "ghost" miners who don't pay attention. Or the ones who don't follow the news on the pool.
If miners want to move to nicehash, let them do it on their own accord. No behind the scenes tomfoolery.

There is no way eleuthria would do the latter and I doubt he'll do the former.

Just a reminder that the mining server will be offline at 23:59 UTC (or shortly after) on June 30th, which is about 20 hours after making this post.  If you plan to continue mining on BTC Guild up until the mining server goes dark, make sure your miners have failover pools in place.


For the first week after the mining pool shuts off, withdrawals may experience brief delays (up to 8 hours if it happens right after I go to sleep).  I'm expecting a significant increase in withdrawal requests once the server shuts off and people who have been mining on auto-pilot finally go to the site and read the news.  This will require moving coins from the cold storage to the payment server, which is a manual process.

Thanks eleuthria.
Yours was the first pool I mined with. I sincerely enjoyed learning through your statistics and forum posts.

Transaction fees go to the pools and the pools decide to pay them to the miners. Anything else, including off-chain solutions are stealing and not the way Bitcoin was intended to function.
Make the block size set by the pool. Pool = miners and they get the choice.
