Ok, let me know if you keep seeing miners fail over.

Most useful would be your IP address, the time period the miner couldn't connect to mint.bitminter.com and a traceroute to mint.bitminter.com
Email that to me at operator@bitminter.com or use the contact form on the website (don't post your IP here or anywhere else public).

How to traceroute:

Windows: open a command prompt and type tracert mint.bitminter.com
Linux/Mac: open a terminal window and type traceroute mint.bitminter.com
Copy-paste the output.

If it happens again I'll get that stuff.  Since I made my post it hasn't failed off of mint.bitminter.com.

Reminder: getblocktemplate and getwork support ends tomorrow on the first of august.

If you are using a pool URL that starts with "http" then you need to switch to stratum+tcp://mint.bitminter.com:3333
(or if you are using an ancient version of Bitminter client, switch to the latest)

Since the shutdown was announced we have gone from 120 to 90 active HTTP mining clients. Compared to the 17000 active Stratum connections this is a small fraction of our miners. It doesn't look like everyone will switch in time though. If you need help with this, please ask.

All our four namecoin blocks today have been orphaned. This happened because a mining pool named F2pool (also known as Discus Fish) decided to enforce BIP66 rules on the namecoin network before all the other pools. Since they have somewhere around 75% of the namecoin hashpower they are basically controlling namecoin at this point.

The last of our orphaned blocks was one of 11 blocks mined by the other pools, all orphaned as F2pool's fork overtook us with 12 blocks. I'm not sure how many blocks from other pools have been orphaned in total.

Bitminer is now running modified namecoin software to mimic F2pool's behavior and stay on their side of these forks. That should help us avoid any further orphans caused by this issue.

You can sell them at an exchange, for example btc-e.com

But you still have a much better statistic then Ghash, for months 80+% luck @ Ghash, it's my view that they take bitcoin that isn't theirs...

Bitminter the pool to go!

You've probably heard about the blocksize debate in the news. Mining pools have begun voting.

BIP100: http://gtf.org/garzik/bitcoin/BIP100-blocksizechangeproposal.pdf
BIP101/XT: https://bitcoinxt.software/

You can see how voting is going here: https://data.bitcoinity.org/bitcoin/block_size_votes/
BIP100 at the moment has over 50% miner support, but the stats take a while to show this.

I believe it would be a good thing for us to support BIP100. But I'd be interested to hear the opinion of miners in the pool.

Not a miner here (or anywhere anymore), but just going to promote BIP100 nonetheless.  Given a choice between BIP100 and 101, I would strongly favor 100, since the exponential increases in BIP101 last far too long to be considered reasonable.

I also prefer BIP100. A locked in block-size growth rate (BIP101) seems a bad choice given the huge number of uncertainties - it's just asking for another hard fork to solve the problem again later.

oafishally mining past a video card speed.. yeah me..  Roll Eyes, i'm with the cool kids now...

I like your pool.. board's user friendly as well as openly supported... many of my questions, got answered in reading up and jumping around the rest of the board here..

I don't know enough to have a say BPwhichever.. my hope is, as the pool operator, please make the best decision for us.. don't care to follow meaningless banter.. nor care to support anyone's singular motives.. you've been doing this long enough and know all the key players..

thank you

Hi

My antminer s5 produces lots of hw when start hashing because pool tells the miner to set difficulty to 4096....way too high!
It reduces after a while...minimum diff on pool worker settings is set to 1024 too....how can i get rid of the 4094 difficulty?

Thanks

It should run just fine at high difficulty and that should not cause any hardware errors at all. This is odd.

It will go to 4096 diff after it serves you 1024 diff and your S5 finds many 1024-diff proofs of work very quickly. Normally I wouldn't expect this to happen, but rather that you would get 1024 diff all the time. It could be caused by batching proofs of work so sending them to the server is delayed, the way the old Avalon machines did it. But it's a really bad idea and I don't think any ASICs do this nowadays. So I'm not sure why this happens to you.

Normally I wouldn't worry about the difficulty going to 4096 for a few minutes and then back to 1024. It should not be a problem at all. But you say you get a lot of hardware errors. Are you sure they happen when mining at difficulty 4096 and not at 1024? It doesn't make any sense at all. On the other hand, it wouldn't be the first time an ASIC machine behaves in a strange way.

Make sure it's not overheating, one possible cause of hardware errors.
