Updated 2 x S9's today with bitmains new asicboost firmware...

 have been testing asicboost on bitminter for a few hours now with no issues..
 packet capture and wireshark show its working.. slight decrease in hash power, 14.01 Th to 13.80...

 I have not yet measured power to see what exactly the decrease in power usage is yet.
 the miners seem to be running about 8C cooler than ones with original firmware so im guessing that is a good sign its saving power.

 you guys may not know this but doc added the asicboost code to the pool back in April, just had to wait all this time to test it Smiley

 Great Job Doc! It works!

Thanks for testing! Yeah, it is exactly 6 months ago today that Bitminter got asicboost support. So far only a few people with Dragonmint miners have been able to use it. I guess we will see a lot more asicboost mining now.

Today is 10 years since Satoshi Nakamoto published the Bitcoin whitepaper.

http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.encryption.general/12588/

That's pretty awesome. Thank you, Satoshi.

For those who have BCH at Bitminter:

On the 15th of november BCH may fork into two coins.

Withdraw your BCH from Bitminter before the 15th, or you will only get one of the two coins. BCH withdrawals will be locked shortly before the fork, until the blockchain(s) stabilize, possibly several days later.

If you want both the two new BCH coins, but you don't know how to handle this yourself or you don't want to, then there are some services that will handle the fork for you and give you both resulting coins. One of them is Coinbase:

See https://support.coinbase.com/customer/portal/articles/2959951

You can watch a countdown at https://cash.coin.dance/ as well as some data on the two factions, Bitcoin ABC and Bitcoin SV, who disagree on the future of BCH.

I'm trying to send my BCH to coinbase, but Bitminer site keeps saying my address is not a valid BCH address.  I'm simply copying the BCH address from my coinbase account, am I doing something wrong?

You have to use the cashaddr tool mentioned on that send page to convert your coinbase addy to the cashaddr format
eg  bitcoincash:qpm2qsznhks23z7629mms6s4cwef74vcwvy22gdx6a

So many people got their BCH stuck by sending it to BTC addresses.

Solution: make the website extremely annoying ...strict.

I still have my keys from pre-BCH that have bitcoin that should therefore have BCH on them too, I've just never done the conversion thingy to get that BCH.  As I understood it, when BCH forked BTC to create itself any BTC balance at that time was also valid BCH.  Anyone know if there is a time limit to do that?  Sorry if I'm not being clear enough.

There is a tiny percent chance of a time limit to it; that is, if Craig Wright is to be believed about his intentions and capabilities.

Suggest you read up and down from that post...
edit: hmm, on reflection, I guess there is no time limit. Deadalnix can keep changing pow. But bch will be ever less valuable and and ever more insecure.

You can still import your BTC private keys from 2017-08-01 into a BCH wallet. For safety these private keys should no longer control any BTC and never be used for BTC in the future.

Some alt coin wallets may use the same folders as Bitcoin Core and mess up your Bitcoin Core data if installed on the same system.

Some alt coin wallets are malware.

If you use VirtualBox to do this in a virtual machine, note that a serious vulnerability was discovered in VirtualBox lately, see https://github.com/MorteNoir1/virtualbox_e1000_0day - I may be wrong but it looks like this is still not patched in the latest version.

There is no paranoia in cryptocurrency. Half the world actually are trying to steal your coins.

Last chance to move your BCH from Bitminter before the fork!

Tomorrow, on the 15th of November, there will be a BCH hard fork and an announced hash war. When the dust settles there may be two or more versions of BCH.

BCH withdrawals will be disabled an hour or two before the fork.

Countdown for the fork: https://cash.coin.dance/

Withdrawals will be re-enabled when the dust settles, at an unknown time in the future. If you didn't withdraw in time then you will only have one of the future BCH versions.

Coinbase has promised to handle the fork for you, so you may want to put your BCH there before the fork. There's probably other services/wallets that will do this for you. If you have the technical skill and knowledge then you may be able to do it yourself.

You may be wondering if a BCH hash war will affect BTC (bitcoin). Jimmy Song talks about it in this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-Gtu_zO4Ws8

BCH withdrawals temporarily disabled

Now starts the BCH hard fork and hash war. This may last for days.

For those who did not withdraw their BCH in time, withdrawals will be re-enabled once the dust settles and there are one or more stable BCH blockchains. You will then be able to withdraw coins on one of these chains.

BCH withdrawals are enabled again.

If you are no longer mining, then please cash out all your coins (BTC, NMC and BCH) from Bitminter.

Thanks for the heads up. Would I need to withdraw them from an exchane like coinbase snd transfer to my blockchain wallet?
