antpool (yeah right) gets the historic 630000 block

6.25 + 0.90 = 7.15 coins

next ½ ing in 210,000 blocks.

around 2024 Nov

Was just thinking this myself trust it to be them to get that block f2pool had a fair few in a row on the run up to it.

That's the shared pool, not solo, and that pool is now closed.

Are you going to keep this one up for a day or 2 more or will it close today?

I would be willing to help upgrade your server if it helped.

depending on what you need.  Maybe we can run a fund raiser to get a better system. Maybe we can chip in we have a lot of players here.

If a server with backup is 4k and it is 100 a month to run it.  That is only 5200  its only .6 btc

lots of us play this pool maybe we chip in .6 btc and revamp the setup.

I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.

Sorry we didn't smash a block before the halving. Luck wasn't on our side, and I checked logs to make sure there were no failed block submits  Roll Eyes

I have to reassess whether I wish to keep this pool open or not. Removing the shared pool has trimmed the resource requirements and the server should be more than capable of running this solo pool now. I suspect the pool will probably not even find a block for months now with the halving so the cost of running it versus any profit would be the worst ever as well, but that was already factored in by increasing the pool fee to 2%. For the time being I will keep it running while I make my decision.

I've been thinking about what stresses me most about this pool that makes it troublesome to run, and it's the risk associated with it more than anything. The disaster I had with the conversion to segwit, and the server overload issue I had yesterday would never be well received. As I feel a sense of responsibility I can't just say "bad luck" to the people who dumped a lot of money's worth of hash into the pool. If the burden of responsibility was off me in case of disasters like that, I could keep the pool running as is. Considering I'm only running this as a service to the community as is, the thought of having to fork out hundreds or even thousands of dollars for something going wrong makes it really stupid to run.

Maybe I'll just keep it running till the next block find and call it a day.

If there's enough resources, for this pool only. Maybe we can keep it running then?
Maybe until the next halving?

I mean, I love this pool. Theres so many memories connected with it, and hell the only reason why I keep mining with my s9, is that i believe it will find a bock someday.
The possibilities that this pool offers can not be found anywhere else.
This pool is like a fair lottery, that keeps making you believe that you will find that block eventually.

And theres nobody else that can be more trustworthy than you, to keep it running.
So on my behalf, im asking you to keep it running, im 100% sure that fellow soloist agree with me.

But why should it?
Your pool worked flawlessly for the past 7 years or so... One of the most stable pools ever.
As I understood there was a glitch, because the server was overloaded, now that theres only this pool left, it should continue working flawlessly as it did before.

No it did not work flawlessly. I fucked up the transition to segwit myself and had a server overload yesterday. That's three blocks that should never have been lost. Never assume that everything will be flawless all the time. That said, when major pools fuck things up, they just silently reset things and tell people bad luck.

Yes, that's what im saying, this pool is transparent, as it gets. Theres no other pool like Yours.
Fuck ups always happen, but major pools will keep it a secret.
Besides, its always better to have a chance, than not to have it at all.

P.s. and also if theres anything needed for this pool to keep it going, just tell us.
We are ready to donate.. or smthg like this.

I'm aware I'm transparent and that's what causes me the issue. Let's say someone decides to dump 300PH on this pool until they find a block, then they have bad luck and it takes them 10x the normal duration and on top of that something goes wrong on the pool and they don't get a block. They are now down 10x6.25BTC's worth of mining and demand at least one block as reward. I have no intention of ever forking out that much money again for an error or problem. I wouldn't expect the community to fund it either; how would you feel about trying to find 6.25BTC amongst the community just to appease them? Should I just tell them "bad luck shit happens" and join the reputation of the big pools?

Honesty and trust go a long way for a lot of people

Why I started here and will end here myself, no faith in the larger pools & some operators

Maybe a disclaimer, dunno but I understand not having anyone lose coin

Sh|t happens, just have to look out the windows nowadays

But the people who know and have used the CK pools have confidence in you....hope it's enough

Your being too pessimistic.
The situation that you described, could happen but its very unlikely.
And no, no one will blame you, its just as you said, all the pools have flaws, but they just keep it a secret.
Or lets say, the same situation you described happened with somebody, but they got a stale block... yeah shit happens.
But atleast they had a chance, that hey were willing to take, to find that block.

And on the other hand, think about those small guys, that keeps finding those blocks from time to time, and for some one its a game changer.

Maybe let this pool run, if there gonna be another server issue you can take it down, if you want.
But for some reason, I believe that your pool will work great, for the coming years, without any problems.

Yes.  Anyone who thinks there will never be a software glitch has unrealistic expectations.

I've thought of a potential solution that involves moving to a completely different model for running the pool.

1. The pool becomes fee free.
2. The pool is now advertised as a 'not for profit" service and mining is "at own risk"
3. A fund is set up to pay for server fees
4. Donations to the maintainer (me) separately for my time and effort are completely voluntary.
5. Profit

If the server fee fund ever dries up the pool closes. If something goes wrong, bad luck.

Thoughts?

1. I think you should keep the fee.
2. Yes, this sounds about right.
3. Maybe, but if you keep the fees, is it needed?
4. Absolutely. + we will keep donating, once we find those blocks.
5. Profit)
6. Lets upgrade you're server, to the best available hardware, theres absolutely no reason for you to spend your money on this hardware, lets use the best cpu, and a really fast ssd, for swap files and etc.
 
7.Im ready to donate, who's ready to donate, just send a message here..

If I keep the fee, it no longer is really a not-for-profit pool and with it comes the onus of being paid by it.

I honestly don't think the fee is a problem for most
If anything I would be willing to move to 3 ~ 4% if it helped with quality of service from your standpoint, better hardware redundancy, etc
Anything else may over-complicate and drive miners away
My prof always stressed KISS in design work (no insult intended)

Alright, well the fee doesn't seem to be a problem. Would people be satisfied with it being advertised as "Not for profit pool, all mining is at miners risk." Just like a car park, all care, no responsibility blah blah.
