CK, may I ask at what speed the farm was mining at? And congratulations.

In this instance I'm not sure if the farm owner wants to remain anonymous so I'm not sure if I can say, but if you check the coinbase signature of that block on blockchain it may give you an idea as to who it is.

They were so large they approached me about a special instance so their hashrate would not appear on the general solo pool's hashrate. It is trivial for me to add extra custom solo instances for large miners.

So are  you saying size matters?

Only insofar as it increases your chance of finding a block. I do not prioritise them in any way. The only reason for a custom connection for them was to allow them to put a custom signature on the block which I'm willing to do for any large miner where large is >100TH. If you don't care about the coinbase signature then there's no advantage apart from perhaps hiding your hashrate.

I won't bother posting any more if these guys find them.

Let's hope some regular miners have some extraordinary luck instead!

What I don't get fully: is there any advantage of mining on your pool (on a dedicated instance) over running a private ckpol for one's farm? Or more generally: does it make a difference at all to any miner (income wise)? Only reason I could think of is your bitcoind is better connected to other nodes and therefore updates blocks faster - at the cost of propagating this info to the other end of the world. Or am I missing something?

Whoooa Chinese! They probably are the ones responsible for the 3PH jump on slush's pool last night too.

One of the features of this pool is meant to be anonymity so I can't really tell you how much they have.

However I can tell you how much you would need to get a block every day on average at current difficulty: About 1.4PH

So, a 120TH would give me an average of 1 block per difficulty level?  Do you recommend solo mining with 120TH?  Do you think that is a gamble or a stupid investment decision?  If so, which one sounds better, " a gambler" or "a stupid investor"?  Thanks.

Recommend? Only if you like high risk stakes, as there is absolutely no guarantee that you'll actually get a block, even if on average mathematically you'd get one. You could get 5, or you could get none for the next 5 diff changes. Everyone would have a different view of how much risk they're willing to accept in order to increase their potential earnings with any investment and this is no different. My opinion is virtually irrelevant.

Thank you.  Can you compare your pool vs. GHASH.  Is your pool faster, better, luckier, cooler than Ghash?  Thanks.

Yeah sure, all of the above  Cheesy... but then it's also for a totally different audience. Ghash is for sheep. This pool's for demon lords.

Ok, I'll interpret it as: if you are already running a bintcoind node, mining over solo.ckpool.org or over your private ckpool is essentially the same.

And re:
I'm pretty sure the entire bitcoin network could mine here.
I seriously assume this will happen within the next year (when mining is done by a dozen giant solo-miners). What did not work out with cgminer, will do now with ckpool: you will be insanely rich - maybe...

If you have high speed connectivity, storage and reliability, uptime etc. yes you could do it all yourself.

I doubt it. Remember my code is all free software...

Great answer!  Here's hoping this particular demon lord can expand his holdings by hitting a block.  I do hope some small miner hits a block here.  That would be far more interesting to read than "Hey, some giant entity just solved yet another block.  Yay."  I'm glad you decided not to post any more of their block hits.

Jonny's Pool - Mine with us and help us grow!  Support a pool that supports Bitcoin, not a hardware manufacturer's pockets!  No SPV cheats.  No empty blocks.

My sarkasm was too subtle. Following the cgminer development I assume that if you take your invested time and divide through the donations and perks received, what remains is an income somewhere between junior SW developer and apprentice. Sure, open source does exist mostly founded by motivation other than money - but at the end of the month (and cgminer looked like a full-time project) still someone needs to pay the bills.

With that in mind, your decision to release ckpool open source deserves respect, since (unlike cgminer that is essential for the hobbyist miner) it more serves the 'big guys' who could afford and be willing to pay for such SW.

In the first post you said "All you need to confirm you are mining to your own address is to examine the coinbase and template sent to you over stratum."

How would one go about viewing the data sent to a miner over stratum?
