Please help get segwit activated

Bitcoin is in a scaling crisis. Transaction fees are getting more and more costly. Companies are leaving bitcoin to build their services on alt coins instead. Many people, especially beginners, are struggling with unconfirmed transactions. New users get the impression that "bitcoin doesn't work". They are increasingly correct. The situation is hindering bitcoin adoption and doing long term damage to bitcoin.

If you want Bitcoin to succeed, here's what you can do:

1. Get more hashpower over on Bitminter and other pools that signal (vote to activate) segregated witness

2. Support BIP148 on your bitcoin node(s) - see http://www.uasf.co/

"I'm supporting Bitcoin Unlimited instead."
Understandable. There are several options for scaling. However, I think segwit has a much better chance of actually happening in the short term. We need scaling sooner rather than later. Please help get our head above water, then we can talk about how to get on land.

"I mine in a pool that doesn't support ANY scaling. I don't care."
So you own miners and bitcoins, but you go against your own economic interest by harming bitcoin. Please ask yourself what exactly you are trying to accomplish. Let me know what the answer is.

"What are these idiots doing?"
I tried to answer that here: https://bitcoin.stackexchange.com/questions/53814/incentives-for-segwit-vs-btu

"How do I see how segwit is doing?"
Have a look at http://segwit.co/
Yes, it looks bleak. Noone said it would be easy. But before we sell all our bitcoins and switch to alt coins, how about we put up one good fight?


So Bitminter is FOR segwit. If you stay mining with Bitminter, you are supporting the FOR segwit soft fork. is this correct ?. Is there anything we need to do with the miners software.   Example im running bfgminer 5.4.2 on windows 10. Is there any command switches we need to set to enable the segwit ?.

Our blocks the last few months have voted for segwit.

You don't need to do anything. If you mine at Bitminter then your hashpower is voting to activate segwit.

As far as I know we never had a block submitted that didn't show in stats, in all 6 years of operation. When block data is submitted it is very carefully taken care of by the pool.

I don't think those stats are accurate. On average it takes over 7 years to find a single block with 13 TH/s. You'd have to be very lucky to find 3 blocks in 4 days.

What exactly are the stats showing? Do you have the hashes of the blocks?

Hi DrHaribo, mined here by the times Grin and hope to continue to do so  Wink
I must admit I haven't a clear view about hard/soft fork cases, the only thing that gave me some true info was a comparison made by Dr.Luke about segwit on Core VS segwit 2Mb.
I completly agree with bitminter on segwit vote, but what will bitminter do in case of hard/soft fork Huh On what chain we will mine Huh  Roll Eyes

If we end up with one Bip148 chain and one Bitmain chain, then I would prefer to mine on the Bip148 chain. Bitmain is planning their own hardfork if bip148 goes into effect, so this could happen.

But it depends on whether both survive. Which one will be called bitcoin? Which one will merchants accept?

That's all I want to hear  Wink thanks DrHaribo  ( In case of low hashrate on the Bip148 chain I'll be ready to increase X4 my little hashpower Grin )

This is exactly why I recently pulled all my BTC out of China.

Hello! I'm very new to mining (also it would be super cool to hear your 6 years long story about it, Doc!:), Just started to mine at BitMinter, and want to ask - how many blocks should be shown as "processes" in my workers's statistics or elsewhere in order for me to see some income in coins?
Thanks!

Welcome to the pool Smiley

Your work is registered in shifts. When someone in the pool finds a block the work in the last 10 completed shifts get their share of the coins from that block. You can see the blocks and shifts under the "statistics" menu on bitminter.com

For the current (incomplete) shift see the live stats, also under statistics.

Dr. Haribo, have you switched over to supporting BIP91 and will the pool be ready to support SegWit blocks tomorrow?

This pool has been signalling BIP141 segwit for a long time. Even without BIP91 support, since basically 100% of blocks are signalling BIP141 now there is no realistic problem without supporting BIP91.

Hey Doc, it seems like it takes an awful lot of faith to get started in the pool.  I learned that your individual stats don't actually show anything until the shift you participate in is completed past 100%.  So, if it takes more than 10 shifts to find a block , does someone doing work in the 11th shift not get any payout for work? And judging by this date, no one in the pool has found a block since 6/27, right?  Thanks in advance.

To see your work in the current incomplete shift, look at the livestats at https://bitminter.com/livestats/big
Your work in completed shifts: https://bitminter.com/shifts
Your work for all time (or since stat reset) is at https://bitminter.com/members/workers

Yeah, when a block is found the last 10 completed shifts get paid. This means the same work can be paid multiple times when we find blocks quickly or some work can get no work when it takes a long time to find a block. So good luck results in high pay and bad luck results in low pay.

Yeah, the last block was 6/27. It's taking a while to find blocks at this difficulty.
