Just a couple quick points:  Firstly, I love seeing the pool's hashrate up and holding at 75-80 PH.  While I've not been mining as long as I'd have liked to, nice to see the pool grow a good 3 to 4 times since I've been hanging around.  Secondly, it was very generous of you, Kano-san, to pay for dinner for both me and me mate Daryll (who I've known since we've been kids) as he was just along for the ride as they say and we weren't expecting it anyway...  So when Kano says on any meet and greets that dinner's on him, he's not kidding!  Wink
And a block while I'm pontificating away...!!!
Mine ON!

Looks like we are on a race with slush again.
Lets see if next block is going to confirm ours or theirs. Huh

all the sites are showing theirs.  btc.com, blocktrail, blockchain.info, ect

So are we at a disadvantage in this situation since we are a smaller pool?

Edit: so if we were to find the next one, then we would get both?

now blockchain.info showing us...

This pool and Slush both found a "471190" block within seconds of each other (both building on top of the same previous 471189 block). The timing was so close that the "network" gets to decide which block is the "valid" block by waiting to see which one the next block (471191) is built on top of. If it's ours, then we get declared the valid block and theirs gets orphaned; if it's on top of Slush's, they get declared the valid block and ours gets orphaned.

If you have to ask "why?", you wouldn`t understand my answer.

Yeah I've spent a few hours going through all the logs (and writing stuff to make that possible on my little laptop screen), so without going into conspiracy theory mode, it's simply been a case of 2 orphans close together.

All our nodes accepted our block - i.e. none of our nodes around the world, that are all connected to the relay, saw slush's block before our block.
That is a significant point, since it means that the 2 competing blocks must have been very close together.
All the node block change times were 500ms or less, except for Silicon Valley was 2s, but that's one node in a group in that area, so all that matters is if one of the group processes it quickly and gets it to the relay quickly, which of course did happen.

Yet it would seem that all the well known sites saw slush's block before our block.

Bottom line is, there's that 500ms (or less) gap, which is almost certainly less than any of the larger pools that are confirming blocks properly, and during that time if another pool manages to submit a block to the relay, we 'can' be orphaned, which isn't of course impossible.

Hey guys, a bit of an semi off topic question, but i'm mining with 2 S7's. My electricity is almost free.
Since the last diff increase and seeing the BTC profits halve every 3 months i'm actually thinking of quitting mining.
As getting a S9 doesn't seem to be a great ROI either.

Just selling the miners and hodling that in BTC seems to be more profitable in the long run than keeping them on.
Anybody else feels the same? Or am i just having a bit of fud?.

It's all a matter of what you're in it for and what you have available. Tbh, "making money" in ASIC Bitcoin mining isn't a "poor man's sport". Undecided

Hey guys, a bit of an semi off topic question...

A single S9 probably would not make sense. Keep your mind free of the hassle. For a Bitcoin mining business, 10x S9's or equivalent is absolute worthwhile minimum, unless it's just a hobby. As general advice, you should go with Ethereum mining instead. As Ethereum mining has been more profitable than Bitcoin mining for 4 consecutive months in a row, it just makes more sense as an investment opportunity for virtually anyone who gets started with crypto mining today, or is at a point of having to replace legacy hardware. I'm getting my own feet wet in Ether mining just this week.

In regards to S7's, I know an investor in wind turbine farm business. He bulk buys S7's on second hand market for peanuts, and then feeds the excess electricity into S7s when production significantly exceeds demand. He says its "much better than selling it back to grid". Your observation is correct, for mining all year around, their worthiness is questionable to say the least. At the end of their life cycle. Perhaps scrap metal for good in 12-18 months.

And then there are other interesting and worthwhile hybrid mining business models where older units or low quantity of miners could make fiscal sense. I don't know much about such hybrid models, but there are now a number of booze makers who find valuable use for the heat generated by crypto miners.

Is there any possibility for foul play here?  I.E. the top 6-10 pools have agreements that they will prioritize eachothers blocks over other pools if found within x seconds or something?  Since it's really up to the next pool who finds a block to decide?

Looking here:
https://blockchain.info/orphaned-blocks

according to them ours was 3 seconds earlier, but I've noticed some are quite a bit more... I.E. 471114 which was 25 seconds apart (according to blockchain) and the later block won.
