I didn't get a mail that my miners are down, but I also don't see any hashrate on the site, my miners are all at 0? Usually I always get a mail. Have there been troubles sending the mails, too?

AOL broke their OpenID server yesterday and it is still broken today. If you use AOL to log in, you can use the contact page at https://bitminter.com/contact to ask for help with adding a different OpenID identity provider. You could also contact AOL and implore them to repair their OpenID service. To verify that this is not a Bitminter issue, try logging in with AOL at http://bitcoin.stackexchange.com - you will get the same blank page.

For anyone not using AOL; it's business as usual.

Useful observation: only Google has provided stable login services for the entire time that Bitminter has existed.

I didn't get a mail that my miners are down, but I also don't see any hashrate on the site, my miners are all at 0? Usually I always get a mail. Have there been troubles sending the mails, too?

There is frequently trouble with getting these emails delivered. Especially to Hotmail and Yahoo which have extremely sentitive anti-spam filters. Did you get the initial mail saying that your hashrate is now above the threshold and will be monitored?

General advice: To ensure messages are not caught in your spamfilter, please add noreply@bitminter.com and operator@bitminter.com to your address book and/or whitelist them with your anti-spam solution.

I didn't get both of the mails.. Smiley I am using an own domain, it's not in the spam and usually I always received it. Smiley Now my Hashrate is 0, need to get to the datacenter as I don't have an access to the miners due to some stupid mistake.. Smiley

It's possible neither email went out if the hashrate never went above the threshold after activating low hashrate warnings. Contact me using the contact page on the website while logged in, then I can see your user name and check into it for you.

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.


Probably way too late for this, but I would support BIP101. Miners have enough power. BIP100 will add unnecessary uncertainty.

Will the share rates become zero and no reward is given if I click on "Work counts reset" button on my active worker? Incidentally I clicked on it while hashing and till now didn't get any rewards for those shares which were reset before! But, fortunately I got rewards of the Namecoin shares only! OP, please throw some light on this!

That's only for statistics. You can change the filter at the bottom of the table to show your work for all time or since last reset. The reset does not actually remove any work and has no effect on payouts. It works similar to a trip meter in a car.

You get paid when blocks are found. Read more here: https://bitcointalk.org/index.php?topic=27062.msg2769824#msg2769824

Not at all

BTC reward and Namecoin reward are on two different difficulty. Someone made a Namecoin block but the share wasn't high enough to solve a Bitcoin block.

Check the Block Income page => https://bitminter.com/blocks?commodity=all

Thank you for your prompt reply. But is there any way I can see how many shares are contributed by me vs the whole pool for a particular block ? Just like Antpool did here => https://www.dropbox.com/s/10nivr4ld72vho8/2015-10-18%2013.27.30.jpg?dl=0

Since I mined at the rate of 880 Gh/s (average) on bitminter, constantly for 4 hours and then stopped it, will this be another reason for not getting any rewards of those shares till now ? Or, haven't a single block been mined until now ?

There is no display showing the amount of work you got paid for for each block. You can see the payment for each block under "my account" -> "transaction history" in the website menu. You can see your work in each shift under "statistics" -> "shifts" in the menu. When a block is found the work that gets paid is the work in the 10 last completed shifts at the time.

If your 4 hours of work is still within the last 10 shifts (see shifts page), then it can still get paid from blocks we find until those shifts are no longer the 10 latest ones.

I really like the idea of decentralise transaction verification so I would like to support pools with low hashing power. However, the only thing that stops me to support Bitminter is the requirement to use an online account to mine on Bitminter. I don't have and I don't want to have an online account managed by any companies like AOL, Yahoo, etc. But out of curiosity if you don't mind to explain, what is the reason why having online account is mandatory to mine on Bitminter? Why can we not register an account which is localised on Bitminter network? Or why can we not use our Bitcoin address to mine on Bitminter?

Why can we not register an account which is localised on Bitminter network? Or why can we not use our Bitcoin address to mine on Bitminter?

The idea in 2011 was to simplify things for users so they don't have to remember so many passwords. Nowadays people use password managers, so that is less of an issue. While some do like the "single sign-on" others don't want to link accounts for privacy reasons. Adding login with user name and password is on the TODO list. Until that is implemented the easiest way would be to create a separate account at Google, Verisign or similar only for logging into Bitminter if you want to avoid having any connection to your regular Google account.

Originally (in 2011) I also thought there would be less support requests related to login issues (no lost passwords). It turns out there's a lot of "I deleted my Google account. How can I log in now?" or "I got banned by Google". Not to mention angry emails accusing me of working with the NSA to spy on people. Or users swearing about how dumb the website is that doesn't recognize them, after they create an account with their own Google account, but are then unable to log in with their girlfriend's Google account.

A lot of users just don't understand OpenID, or even the "log in with Google" or "log in with Facebook" that many websites have. So yeah, name and password would probably have been a better choice.

That said, over 350 000 people have registered and most of them manage(d) fine.

By the way, thanks for wanting to mine responsibly. Many miners these days don't even know why decentralization is important for bitcoin. Even fewer have noticed that China has over 60% of the hashpower and what a problem this could be.

You can create an AOL account with almost no info (and all of it made up if you want).  I created one for the sole purpose of being able to chat with someone who used a MAC since AIM is compatible with that whole MAC chat thing, whatever it is called.  Then when I signed up on bitminter I just used that same AOL account and it works fine (except when AOL openID was broke for a minute there).  https://my.screenname.aol.com/_cqr/login/login.psp?
