Nice Website. I wonder which Double Geometric Variables you are running (f, c, o)? Found nothing about that on your website.

Just joined. You might want to make the auto-payout feature dependent on the user inputting a wallet address first. I don't know how your system is designed to handle sending payouts to nothing.

I've been mining here since the beta.  It's been amazingly stable.  btcx has been very responsive to suggestions to improve the pool.  Plus, he's just a nice guy (which sadly can't be said about some other pool ops).

I give the pool 9 thumbs up!

Thanks for joining, and for the suggestion.  Currently, if you don't have a wallet address and you enable auto payouts, no payments will be sent but I do agree that we should probably just disable the auto payouts option (and direct users to enter a wallet address to enable it) for users who don't have a wallet address set yet.

edit:  this is now implemented.

Thanks, rando Smiley  Your suggestions and help with testing have been great.  Also, your mining operation is awesome!

I notice you plan to process payouts via moneybookers, just be cautious since they refuse to deal with any bitcoin-related trading.

Submitted 270k shares in the last round and got paid .06 BTC because I left before the round what over.  Undecided

What kind of DGM settings do have have to decay shares so quickly and why?

Thanks for giving it a whirl.  You must have left pretty early in the round, which required 2.2m shares.  The values can all be seen here:  https://www.maxbtc.com/work-payouts?w=41

currently: f = 0.0505, c = 0.01, o = 0.8

edit:  actually, c is way too low, giving a disproportionately large value to shares submitted near the end of the round.

starting round 43, the values will be:  f = -0.1555, c = 0.1, o = 0.8
bonus is reduced to 4%

I'm open to suggestions, discussion on what those values should be.


I notice you plan to process payouts via moneybookers, just be cautious since they refuse to deal with any bitcoin-related trading.

I have another business that does 1000+ txns/day.  I was planning on funneling the Bitcoin withdrawals through that account.  Technically, withdrawing to MB or PayPal isn't really the same as selling Bitcoin.  We already have the Bitcoin.. we'd just be paying you for your hashing contribution with dollars instead but it's probably best to obfuscate the transaction just in case.

So if I mine with the 3.50% there is still technically a -2% fee with the 4% bonus ('Cause of invalids counting).

Good idea making special features require people to donate, I haven't personally seen that before.

Oh and I love the website's stats pages, they are very organized and easy to read.

Thanks Smiley  It'd be a -0.88% fee (0.88% bonus).  The bonus is applied first and then donations are taken out.

That is truly fucked up. I received 0.00000025 BTC for my avg 222 MH /sec, whereas someone mining 10x less shares got 10,000x more reward that round. Even if you adjust the parameters I cannot see how it would be more profitable than deepbit for anyone who mines intermittently.

Oh, btw the pool rewards graph is one day early. Unless it's March 26th somewhere already...?

Sounds like a tobic for organofcorti's upcomming edition of Neighbourhood Pool Watch!

Which block was this on?  c being too low was fixed as of round 43, and the adjustment to the parameters was actually huge, despite the numbers looking small.  Round 45 was extremely long.. 4.8m shares, though we did end up paying out 57 BTC for it.  The further from the end you dropped out, the further reduced your rewards would be.  Also, it may take a few rounds of mining most of the time for your score to stabilize.  This is the nature of DGM.  If you're just mining for 10 minutes at a time here and there, a DGM pool is probably not the best option for you but you'll have to try it out and see.  Another feature of DGM is cross-round leakage.  As an example, GigaVPS stopped mining hours before round 45 was over but still got 0.67 BTC at 329k shares, and he hasn't mined at all yet on round 46 but if the round ended now he'd receive 0.31 BTC for it.

I believe that the graph will show anything mined on the current day UTC as belonging to the following day.
