Guys if I want to try my luck and point some miners from Nicehash at this pool is it better to run at high speed and use my credit quickly or slow it down to make my credit last longer.

For example if I want to spend 0.1BTC I can set the speed to 1 GH/s and my credit will last 36 hours.
Or I can set the speed at 3 GH/s and my credit will last 12 hours.
Which has the greatest chance to find a block?
 

im sure this will be answered by a more qualified person.. but.. anything less then 1PH/s is a waste of time.. i hope you meant PH/s and not GH/s or even TH/s

also it doesnt matter if its 1PH/s for 36 hours or 3 PH/s for 12 hours.. you get the same chance..



If you look the last block that hit was 196T, that is why it's called the BTC lottery!!

Either you misread, mistyped, or would be getting ripped off (that price will get you hundreds of TH on miningrigrentals).
That aside, the answer is that it doesn't matter. 1x for 36 hours and 3x for 12 hours will submit the same number of shares.

If you have to ask "why?", you wouldn`t understand my answer.

yeah but that last block was solved by a guy that has gotten like 10 or so blocks.. and has spent a TON on rentals.. not just 12 hours.. im not even sure he is breaking even.

damn, I thought because it was a relative low hashrate it was somebody that "needed" the block.  but you said he has solved many.  

Let me guess,  he's never shared any of the bitcoins?  

edit yesterday that low hashrate gave me hope that maybe something under 1 PH/s could find a block.  I rented 150 T for 24.  about 1 hour in it hit me, no way in hell I could hit one and just put it on a pool.

what do you mean? why would he?  If I hit one you better be damn sure I would share. I would find a family man with kids and bills..    what's the point of basically winning $13,000 then?  (don't worry I was mining when bitcoins were $3 a piece..I look at bitcoins a little bit different)

are you guys telling me that out of 230 blocks NOBODY has ever shared any of them?  and people don't understand what's wrong with our society.

What's wrong with our society is that too many people see someone else investing in excess of $50,000 (in excess of a couple/few million if you go the whole 230 blocks) and thinking that they should be given something from the other guy's solo mining returns just because they are breathing.  Undecided

Exactly! I've personally seen hundreds of ppl receiving humanitarian aid and none of it helped. They just spend it, do nothing to earn more and then come and beg, then ask, then demand everything they need for free from those who have it.
Educational and investment aid is much more efficient - it gives possibilities to those who want to do smth with their lives and not only beg for other ppl's earnings.

Btw, Friday lottery goes on! GL to me and everyone else here!

And thanks again madmartyk. Almost all the early block finders and about half the late block finders gave me a tip after finding a block, so it has been getting less and less common of late. This service cannot possibly attract enough hashrate to make much more than it costs to run the servers and most people have acknowledged that and appreciated that it provides a service beyond its fee and tipping was routine in the past. The tips helped fund further development and while no one is obliged to do it, I greatly appreciated it and it helped keep this service alive and well and kept me enthusiastic about continuing to run it. I could have raised the fee further but I acknowledge this is a no-frills service so that would be unrealistic and I quite liked the community aspect to this pool even if it doesn't earn me much (and costs me in code and maintenance time).

Let's see....



(If I) hit one you better be damn sure I would share. I would find a family man with kids and bills


I...Me  that's what I would do.   Not only would it make me feel great, I know I would be breaking the mold of the greedy fucks that have taken over Bitcoin.  They do nothing for the community except line their own pockets.  You would think that the SOLO mining community would have more compassion, because we are probably 75% home hobby miners.

edit sorry -ck didn't want to derail your thread.  hopefully someone with a soul finds a block soon!!!!

You are confusing massive wins on the lottery with a solo block and are mixing in all miner types in your thinking. Yes there are people with a single low hashrate mining device on this pool and they have to be extremely lucky to find a block - and they do occasionally. However the bulk of the blocks lately are being found by much larger miners, at least 100TH, and often they've spent more money on their mining investment, or spent more on renting hashrate, than the amount they have been rewarded. They're not really winning the lottery with their block finds; the margins are much smaller since they invested much more (and renting overall for long enough is a guaranteed loss.)

Those were the days, 25 BTC blocks (even though BTC was only worth $250 each) and only 102B to solve a block.

The diff was less than 2x that back last June Sad

Well if we're going to compare... I can remember 50BTC blocks, $3 BTC and 30 million diff.  Undecided

Wasn't it in 2011 when the difficulty broke 1M?  I seem to remember allot of people saying they were quitting because it wouldn't be profitable to mine anymore.

Actually you're right, I recall the diff being even lower but btc was $30 at the time. It went down while I was mining. I think diff was around 600k when I first started mining (June 2011).
