Just wanted to take a minute to thank eleuthria for his dedication and work on one of the most stable and robust pools that have ever graced bitcoin.  BtcGuild has been a pillar in the bitcoin world and it will be sad to see it go.

Thanks for all the hard work!

What happens if there's still a balance left in people's accounts?  Do you keep it as a donation?

Yes.  Balances are forfeit to the pool if they are not withdrawn after the 3 months of time being given for people to click a button.  This is in line with the Terms of Service, item #7, and what users who have left the pool/stopped mining have been told.  There are a couple hundred accounts (over the last few years) where users have offered to donate whatever remaining balances they had to the pool.  I have always stated that if that is what they want to do, leave the balance on their account and whenever the pool closes, that is when it will be considered donated/given back to the pool.  Up until that final moment where the servers shut off, users have every right to change their mind and pull those balances off their accounts.

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.

All valid points, & exactly the reasons I won't use Eligius or anything else even slightly connected with Luke-Jr.

After reading up some, I chose p2pool - it's decentralised nature really appealed to me. The Bitcoin mining scene will be worse off without the Guild - thank you eleuthria for being an upstanding & trustworthy member of the mining community - in these times of badly coded scam pools - you will be sorely missed.
I agree and am looking for a new pool myself. Might just be a good time to bow completely out of bitcoin too.
I really don't like the direction it is heading.
I gave slush a chance years ago, tried him again at beginning of last year and nothing changed.
I saw they updated the site but he doesn't offer anything special. If anything I recall them removing merged mining and now they are "redeveloping" it. seriously I'll give a mining fee to someone else kthx.
I won't join a pool that avg's a block every 24 hrs or worst. There needs to be a few to make it worth my time.

Eligius sucks. There's only so many months or years you can look at "Much more to come - be patient" all over the place. And yes, it is my opinion. And I'm not sorry if you disagree.

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.

You guys sound like bickering women. All to sensitive here. Unless you are actually a woman.

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.

Sorry to say bitcoin is just a test. There will be another virtual currency that will take its place without any of the limitations or problems bitcoin currently has.

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.

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?

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.


This forum software should have been updated quite a long time ago. Have the slightest idea on why it was never updated. I see your trust rating as 2. Others see you as 30. The whole idea of "trust" is what to expect from someone you don't know. Since I don't know you, I would rather see your true trust rating, but I don't. NEVER go by the trust rating system on here. Even with the users that have a -20 or more. It doe not work properly.

NMC was dropped to 0.001 because of how many people were bitching about their trapped NMC worth *less than a penny*.  It was also updated so all automatic payout triggers paid out the entire balance down to 0.00000001 a few hours after the pool closed for the same reason.

Kano CKPool is no longer recommended because it is run by a fucking baby.  That better?

Stop it!  You guys are making me nostalgic for the good old days of merged-mining controversy and pool dev/op quarreling.   Cry  Cry  Cry

NMC  ? Im going to have to check as I dont think I ever withdrew.   End of era this is, never a legendary tag more appropriate

Seems necessary and 'side chains' not a distraction but required, I wonder how/if things will progress or fall apart.  Creative destruction is a natural thing not a one off

Probably a dumb question, but I've been out of the loop for a while and tried searching the forums to no avail: Is there any way to withdraw my Namecoin balance? I don't see any Namecoin options in settings. Thanks!

Turn on "Show Namecoin Summary" in the settings.  Then enter a namecoin address and set the automatic withdrawal to less than your balance.

Should be somewhat fixed now.  The settings page was reworked a bit with the closure (and edited a few times since) to try and make it idiot-proof.  The NMC wallet area was removed for accounts which didn't have NMC displayed.  Looks like somewhere I also ended up hiding the ability to make it show up again.  It's now under settings "Show Namecoins".

You bet.  Being able to sleep and leave the house without fear of a phone alarm going off because a server is under attack is a pretty nice feeling!
