Bitminter shutdown notice

The Bitminter mining pool will shut down mining activities on 2020-07-01. The website will stay up until 2021-06-01 so you can cash out any crypto currency on your account.

It is unfortunate to have to shut down after 9 years of mining. However, to keep going would not be fair to the few miners we have left in the pool. The efforts of miners who have tried to keep the pool going is greatly appreciated. But the pool has shrunk so much that we might never find another block. Attempts to bring big miners onboard did not work out.

A big thank you to everyone who mined with Bitminter over the years. This has been a grand adventure.

The original purpose of Bitminter was to make mining accessible to those who found other mining software difficult to operate. For many of our users mining in this pool was their first experience with bitcoin. I hope you enjoyed it and that you are still part of the bitcoin community.

Hopefully Bitminter was a useful service for you.

Best of luck for the future.

Looks like the thread switch is well received. Smiley

First two posts should do it. I can put in some info later as needed.

Hey Doc, doubt it really matters but you didnt include the pool speed in the title of this new thread.

To be decided...

Any chance you could support the grid seed units?  I have never really got them working bitcoins but if you could somehow support them I would point them at the bitminter...  I would even send you one of them.

Hi,
On the BTC luck chart, does anyone know what's the time frame for a column? Can one access chart data from whatever point in time?
Thanks

Glad this was a cleanup.  I was really worried I had pushed my rhetoric too far in the old thread.  Now, on to earning and learning!!!!

Isn't gridseed very slow at mining bitcoins? Does it make sense to use them for that? I haven't looked at the gridseed myself.

On the BTC luck chart, does anyone know what's the time frame for a column? Can one access chart data from whatever point in time?

It's the last 500 blocks (NMC or BTC, total blocks, not 500 of each). There's no way to move backwards in time - that's still on my TODO list.

Where I have them I don't pay power so it would make sense for me.  They do about 6 ghash each and I have a dozen.  They are mostly used for scrypt but if the minter app supported them I would love for them to do something useful and easy.  They make neat desk items as conversation pieces.

if you PM me directly I would send you one to try and get them working.  They are only worth about $29 now each. 

Thanks

ON the accounts page what does the future column represent?

And thanks for all the green blocks guys.  Looks like more pool hoppers are inbound so maybe we can get more going.

Thanks
