I need help understanding what happened on my BFGminer. I'm experimenting with crypto and getting into ETH mining. But I have a usb block erupter i was toying with and trying to see if I can get it to script mine. But I left the bfg miner for ck pool running just for the hell of it and I ended up getting an accepted share which I have no idea what it is. My Efficiency reads at 12.66 and my Accepted share is at 1.

to be simple - a block erupter is an asic and can only mine SHA-256 so if you were trying to mine scrypt with it, there is no way you would have gotten a share on scrypt - someone correct me on that if I am wrong, but about 99.9% sure that I am not.

If you were mining sha-256 and got a share, then that would be expected - but if you were pointing it at ckpool, a share means nothing unless it exceeds the diff required to find a block --- you can have shares but not find any blocks, in other words.

i was mining with the SHA256 on ck pool. And my diff showed as 11.7k over 10k meaning that there was a block mined or I'm missing some crucial piece of information.

a share does not mean you hit a block. With the difficulty of your share (11.7k) and I would assume 10k was the lowest diff the pool would accept so your miner hit a share with a diff high enough for the pool to accept - not to get a block though. not sure when you hit this share of 11.7k but right now diff is 23.58 th - and your share was 11.7k - or you need higher than 23,581,981,443,663 and you got 11,700

Okay makes sense. So to obtain a block my difficulty must surpass the base difficulty of the block and for that to happen is entirely by chance/luck. When a share is expected, that doesn't mean a block is mined but means that the minimum mining diff was surpassed and a share was accepted by the pool in an attempt to mine the block. Sorry if I'm being an inconvenience, I'm trying to learn about it. I'm curious, how can you tell if you mined a block, Eth or BTC or any to be frank.

you will know you you mined a block when your best share is > than what is needed to mine a block.

I am using cgminer for my R606's - I don't see anywhere it would say I found a block - but I do check it regularly so if the best share was greater than the diff required, I would know I found one.

for my larger asics, they have a field in the UI where it shows the number of blocks found, if any.

I am making a bot for Telegram, which notifies every hour, the status of the work my miner is doing.

As you can see, it shows the hashrate of 1h, the shares, number of workers, as well as accepted and rejected messages, I'm with the part of the % percentage of rejected messages, also tells you the times that works more a miner than another, in the capture you see the U3 in value 0 because I have it in another site for some tests.

As soon as it is ready, I will upload it to my git to share it! Happy mining

https://fotos.subefotos.com/afcd2b9c1041b6e269f6e8eeba9a845fo.jpg


One doubt, as you see in the screenshot, I have 0.77% (.77%, I'm working on it... ) of rejected messages, of type:

"Rejected 22c4646464 Diff 7/5 BF1 x pool 0 (Stale)" and "Rejected 16f35d27 Diff 11/11 BF1 x pool 0 (Above target)".

What is the reason for these messages?
oh, and the Diff has been going down to /5, passing through /10000, /101, /23, /11...

Code:
Accepted 033f02a8 Diff 20.2K/10000 BF1 0 pool 0
Accepted 94239d52 Diff 113K/10000 BF1 1 pool 0
Rejected 024cad11 Diff 111/101 BF1 1 pool 0 (Above target)
Accepted 275c2d73 Diff 1.67K/101 BF1 0 pool 0
Rejected 91511666 Diff 451/101 BF1 1 pool 0 (Above target)
Rejected 0572fbd2 Diff 47/23 BF1 1 pool 0 (Above target)
Rejected 07ad97ee Diff 33/23 BF1 1 pool 0 (Above target)

Bitcoin Core 0.21.1 has just been released with the signalling bit for taproot activation. It's a fairly optimistic release mechanism hoping for a supermajority of miners to activate taproot by 11 August 2021. I have no objection to taproot activation but have been holding off doing any changes to the bitcoin node running on the solo pool given its long term stability. However should taproot get activated, running a node without taproot support will risk creating blocks on an invalid chain. So at some stage in the next week I will be validating the latest bitcoin core node before updating it on the solo pool, so that the pool will also be signalling for taproot. That said, without mining any blocks we're not signalling anything, so it's just a precautionary step in advance. I'll put a notification in the near future when the node has been updated, but it will not cause an interruption to mining.

Mine on.

There are USB ASIC Scrypt miners as well. Futurebit Moonlander does Scrypt. I've been toying with some USB miners to give as gifts to friends and family.

Thanks, everyone! 1PiY here...

I've always watched this thread closely over the past 5 years and have always appreciated everyone's support and kindness for one another. Usually I just mine away in the shadows...

Keep mining, everyone, it AIN'T over yet!

And THANK YOU @ck for making this wild ride a possibility  Smiley
You're most welcome and congratulations. It takes serious balls to throw that much hashrate at solo mining and it paid off for you.


I have 2 questions. I am running a somewhat Dinky 70TH/s setup. Is it possible for the 10PH/s maniacs to literally steal a block from me? Also, I noticed whilst re-reading the intro "Unlike regular pools, ckpool never mines transaction-free blocks due to its ultra-scaleable code which has miners on both new blocks and transactions concurrently." and I was curious what the problems are which are associated with "Transaction-free blocks."

Thank you for at least the idea of a lottery pool. I guess I just want to be assured it truly is one.
No, there's no stealing of blocks. These days with blocks being only 6.25 BTC, transactions are a bigger part of the reward than ever, regularly constituting over 10% of the reward. Now that bitcoin is exceedingly popular, transaction counts increase and a block without transactions do not benefit the network at large, delaying transactions. There is also the risk of creating an invalid fork when building on transaction free blocks, which has happened in the past, invalidating all blocks built on that fork.

Thank you for answering my question(s). I revisited this forum because I have the third address (if cannot connect to other pools) set to solo.ckpool. Strangest thing has happened though. I only use this as the off chance while one of my miners is reconnecting to the main fpps pool I use, I manage to hit a block and open my wallet one day to find I wont be worrying about money for a long time. However, one of my miners has fixed onto the ckpool and wont get off of it (with disconnecting internet). I guess I will have a look into it and get it back on PaidPerShare until I am ready to commit 100% of my hashing power to lottery (when I feel I have enough money to buy a decent acerage of rural and raw property).

I do have a question though. If one of my miners finds a block, will it need to stay online until my miner has "solved it" or "Submitted it" or something? Like if I actually found a block  and POOF my power went out, would I still get the reward? (with my luck that might actually happen). I have done some research on how BTC works but not enough or I have been looking in the wrong places. I would appreciate an answer to help calm my nerves. Thank you.

Nope, once solved the reward is on the blockchain and as good as being in your wallet. Your mining gear can go up in flames and disappear forever but your block reward is permanently etched into the blockchain.

I went light on fees and will try to push it.

At the moment fees are decent so I consolidated the ck funds and they now sit in this address below.

I want to update this.

I have 0.01755 btc in my coinbase account that is the donated money.  I made a lot on my doge holdings on my trezor wallets and found my trezors froze the doge for 4 days.

So I am less happy with using the trezor for longer holds.

I have 0.01755 btc which is about 1053 usd held. I will hodl it till June or till coins get to 100k.

So coins are on coinbase and are safe.

I will then send to ck.
