Hello, I've been mining for the past few days now, but I do not see any progress on how much I'm making or any payouts anywhere on the status page? any advice?

Because we haven't found a block for 134 hours.

Mine at pools that pay transaction fees & don't mine empty blocks :: kanopool :: ckpool ::

Yep, difficulty just went up 4.62%. Looking at stats, global hashrate has DOUBLED since the start of December 2017. It's a mad race now.

also were do i ask for help about upgrading firmware on my s3 using kano firmware?
dont want to use this page if its not for firmware talk lol
Instructions are there:
https://bitbucket.org/TheKano/cgminer-binaries/src
I followed the instructions under the s3 section and putty cant find file on the server that i enter? I even copied and pasted to make sure there was no errors 🤯
putty doesn't find files, it allows you to login to your S3 and type commands Smiley

There's a list of 7 commands there to execute after you login to your S3, and you simply execute them one after the other.

If any command fails you most likely mistyped it.

Edit: or there some problem with your access to the kano.is web site Tongue
just to make sure im not doing anything wrong
do i have to download any of the s3 files?
i open putty enter ip of miner , connect, enter user and password
then
cd /
then
wget http://kano.is/AntS3/cgminer-ants3-4.9.2-94e04f6-3.tgz
after this i get error  wget: bad address 'kano.is'

im sorry im a total noob lol
my s3 is down and i cant mine with it at the moment Sad
i can access kano.is just fine
That means your miner has no DNS - it can't translate kano.is to an IP address - yep something's wrong at your end!
Replace "kano.is" with the IP address (45.63.95.39) and thus do the DNS manually Smiley
Of course, none of this will stop your S3 working.

for some odd reason it stopped my s3 from mining but all the details r still in the mining pool section, dont know , what i will do is try what your said if i cant sort it out i will just do a factory reset of my s3 and hopfully that will fix my problem

My calculations are the same. This pool needs to hit 8 blocks a month for the payout to be more. 1.1% is a big difference if you are making a fixed amount per month but that is not the case. I understand we look back at the history but what history doesn’t take into account is the amount of new hashing power that has come online and will continue to drive the difficulty to the moon. We need to promote the crap out of this pool and start now. It is the BEST pool here hands down but we are not going to win anymore miners here until WE step up and make it happen. When it becomes unaffordable for the larger miners to mine here, they will slowly leave too. It is more than just money to some but eventually everyone will have a breaking point for one reason or another. I love this pool and you guys are the best but we need to get off our asses and come up with a solution.

ok question as im a total noob
last block was found 136h in our pool
so now we have a new block to crack
are we still on the same block for 136h or can that block be cracked by another mining pool?
also since the difficulty level gets higher and higher does this mean older miners like s1/s3 have no chance of cracking a block?
hope to have my s1 and s3 back up and running soon , gonna work on them now

Its not about getting more miners to mine at this pool, what should be happening is you and everyone already on the pool should be buying more hardware to keep up with the difficulty, getting the rest of the pool bigger but staying the same yourself means you will just get smaller and smaller rewards.

Instead of spending time trying to get more miners, spend some money and get more hardware yourself. This isn't something new its something everyone has had to do since mining began.

valid point also - but i would also suggest that with more miners, the probability of cracking more blocks (within the same time period) increases.  Therefore the small miners like us, get more run-rate payouts (albeit smaller share, but more frequent) - which then helps us to fund more rigs.  It all helps.

If we all had the money to double our mining operations we wouldn’t be having this discussion. Essentially, since December, each and everyone one of us would have had to double their operation. I am out of power at my home. I can not add anything more. So while your statement in theory is the correct approach, real world application is not possible for some. I am currently setting up a mining facility to do just that and have 3 partners also included in the effort. Together we have purchased 100 additional S9s on the March batch. I understand what you are saying and I am in agreement and also actively doing something about it but that solution is not as easily implemented in the real world as it is on paper.

Yep, mining is not as easy as it used to be for any of us but you have to have a plan and stick to it.  Once my March shipment comes in I will have nearly doubled my hash since the end of December.  That's the way it is now.

1/2 of my Avalon's will go online tomorrow, not braving the possible 2-5 inches here today just to get 24 hours of mining and 5 hours of lost driving time.  haha

It looks like a lot of us are doing this. With the equipment coming in this week, as soon as it's up, I'll have tripled my meager hashpower. And I, too, have hit the wall - no additional power is available here.

Cryptocurrency is neither a hobby nor business for the faint of heart or impatient.

Nope - if the pool grew with new miners then at least the current miners will continue to get smaller and smaller rewards..  if the pool doesn't grow at all then no one gets anything..  less and less of ZERO is not the same as less and less of SOMETHING CONSTANT

that is the point you old heads keep ignoring.. you keep thinking this is the same old small vs big pool discussion and ignoring the ghost ship pool syndrome

I pointed this out months ago and got all kinds of 'stupid native yelling' thrown back at me...  enjoy mining your smugness


PS-   Who is cryptostarusa anyway??  Is that cloud hash that kano is spending his BTC on?  or is it a miner he reached out to and greased his wheels?

ok question as im a total noob
last block was found 136h in our pool
so now we have a new block to crack
are we still on the same block for 136h or can that block be cracked by another mining pool?
also since the difficulty level gets higher and higher does this mean older miners like s1/s3 have no chance of cracking a block?

We are not on the same block. When a new block is found on the network, all of our miners start work on that one.

As difficulty goes up, the amount of time it'll take for older miners to find a block goes up. They still have chances to find a share that results in a block, but the probability goes down. (Although it'll never be 0, just very close to it.)

I’m fully ramp up with my S9 now, and my percentage is about 0.03%, and I usually get awarded at 0.0035xxx per block found at Kano.
At normal pool, I get 0.00125 (after fee) minimum per day, so as a month (30 days) I get 0.00125x30=0.0375/month.
So if we found less than 10 blocks/month (depends on luck), I can’t get as much as normal pool.
Do I get it right here?

yup - thats more or less accurate from my understanding.  i was asking similar questions last month when i started mining on Kano, migrating my 4xS9 to this pool.

Its been a tough end of Jan & beginning of Feb ... but i'm hopeful for the future.

btw, theres no such thing as a "normal" pool ... just different hashing/share calc & payout methods.
I have 1 S9 at Kano from 14 Jan,  but with bad luck and depend on the pool hashrate, the income is not as much as I thought. I have monthly bills to pay, what should I do?

Unfortunately no one can really answer that but you. Because of the nature of this pool blocks will come less frequently but the payout will be greater. If you have bills to pay and need a fixed amount of bitcoin coming in then another pool might be the best but in the long run you will probably make less. Patience is definitely needed here but I can understand your dilemma.

In the meantime MINE ON!!!! and BTClock Dance!!!!

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TcWPiHjIExA


I am pretty sure the 0.9% fee over time will not make up for the lost income over the past month even if your here for 5 years+. With the horrible luck and the difficulty changes even if the pool fee was 0% you wouldnt make enough BTC to cover the losses. Anyone who started mining here mid january got fucked. I know this cause thats exactly what i did. Ive since moved all my miners back to slush. From jan 15 to feb 15 i made less than %10 what i mined the month before. The pool seems legit and has alot of support, I want it to succeed, but its too risky for me to run my rigs here with the high variance of payments. I cant afford to pay my power bill now.

this is only valid if you believe that this pool will continue to find 1-2 blocks per month going into the future.
Based on statistics & the history of the pool .... that is likely not the case.

If the pool can crack more than 8 blocks a month, it is likely the payout will be higher than slush & others.  Having a 10+ block month will have significantly higher payouts here.

I believe the luck will even out and yes you might have an awesome month with twice as many blocks as expected but that still wont make up for lost btc you could of earned with consistent payouts through out the difficulty changes.  For example if you found half as many blocks as expected one month and double what is expected the next month it does not even out because with the difficulty increase you will get less no matter what the second month. So If you started mid january you will never make back the btc you could of had with regular payments.  If you started mining here on a month with double the luck then it would be the other way around.  ALTHOUGH with the 5ND ramp combined with difficulty changes, lost btc during your 5nd ramp up WILL NOT EQUAL the btc gained during the 5nd ramp down becuase the difficulty has increased by then!!!!!!!

prove me wrong and stop saying mining isnt for the faint of heart. This pool isnt for the faint of heart. Mining is fucking easy

Mate the only point that you make is that you are an imbecile. Nothing you are saying is new to us "old heads" we knew about it years before you even had an inkling of it in your head. We knew, we consider and we plan our mining around our knowledge, anything you say is just bad gas. I am one of the few have put up with the rubbish spewing from your fingers but its just boring now, so from no on it'll just be when someone who doesn't know better quotes you that I'll have to put up with it.

The number of miners makes no difference, its just about the size of the pool. Its nothing to do with the pool per-se, its to do with the people mining at the pool, and their ability to increase their hash rate to keep the pool and their income viable. Its better to have less miners with more hash power than more miners with less hash power.

If people want to have a consistent income from mining they have to keep buying hardware to keep up with the difficulty, its the same since day 1 of mining and will always be the same.

If anything the difficulty to keep up is to do with the slow down in technology innovation around mining and the greed and control of a single primary supplier. In the past hardware has got faster, more efficient and cheaper, this has changed recently, that and the increase in value of bitcoin and the subsequent "gold rush" mentality of new miners means its tougher and tougher to maintain that steady growth.

People getting into it now are only just realising what we "old heads" knew 18 months ago. You can't do this at home anymore, you have to have your gear colo'ed somewhere with cheap and abundant power. Problem is that there is no room at the inn for most of the hosting companies.

Its not about getting more miners to mine at this pool, what should be happening is you and everyone already on the pool should be buying more hardware to keep up with the difficulty, getting the rest of the pool bigger but staying the same yourself means you will just get smaller and smaller rewards.

Instead of spending time trying to get more miners, spend some money and get more hardware yourself. This isn't something new its something everyone has had to do since mining began.

Nope - if the pool grew with new miners then at least the current miners will continue to get smaller and smaller rewards..  if the pool doesn't grow at all then no one gets anything..  less and less of ZERO is not the same as less and less of SOMETHING CONSTANT

that is the point you old heads keep ignoring.. you keep thinking this is the same old small vs big pool discussion and ignoring the ghost ship pool syndrome

I pointed this out months ago and got all kinds of 'stupid native yelling' thrown back at me...  enjoy mining your smugness


PS-   Who is cryptostarusa anyway??  Is that cloud hash that kano is spending his BTC on?  or is it a miner he reached out to and greased his wheels?

Mate the only point that you make is that you are an imbecile. Nothing you are saying is new to us "old heads" we knew about it years before you even had an inkling of it in your head. We knew, we consider and we plan our mining around our knowledge, anything you say is just bad gas. I am one of the few have put up with the rubbish spewing from your fingers but its just boring now, so from no on it'll just be when someone who doesn't know better quotes you that I'll have to put up with it.

The number of miners makes no difference, its just about the size of the pool. Its nothing to do with the pool per-se, its to do with the people mining at the pool, and their ability to increase their hash rate to keep the pool and their income viable. Its better to have less miners with more hash power than more miners with less hash power.

If people want to have a consistent income from mining they have to keep buying hardware to keep up with the difficulty, its the same since day 1 of mining and will always be the same.

If anything the difficulty to keep up is to do with the slow down in technology innovation around mining and the greed and control of a single primary supplier. In the past hardware has got faster, more efficient and cheaper, this has changed recently, that and the increase in value of bitcoin and the subsequent "gold rush" mentality of new miners means its tougher and tougher to maintain that steady growth.

People getting into it now are only just realising what we "old heads" knew 18 months ago. You can't do this at home anymore, you have to have your gear colo'ed somewhere with cheap and abundant power. Problem is that there is no room at the inn for most of the hosting companies.




100% Agree  (especially the 1st paragraph!!).

I've been meaning to post something very similar to this is what I think almost every time I read most of the new posts.

Mine On!!

My calculations are the same. This pool needs to hit 8 blocks a month for the payout to be more. 1.1% is a big difference if you are making a fixed amount per month but that is not the case. I understand we look back at the history but what history doesn’t take into account is the amount of new hashing power that has come online and will continue to drive the difficulty to the moon. We need to promote the crap out of this pool and start now. It is the BEST pool here hands down but we are not going to win anymore miners here until WE step up and make it happen. When it becomes unaffordable for the larger miners to mine here, they will slowly leave too. It is more than just money to some but eventually everyone will have a breaking point for one reason or another.

If we all had the money to double our mining operations we wouldn’t be having this discussion. Essentially, since December, each and everyone one of us would have had to double their operation. I am out of power at my home. I can not add anything more. So while your statement in theory is the correct approach, real world application is not possible for some. I am currently setting up a mining facility to do just that and have 3 partners also included in the effort. Together we have purchased 100 additional S9s on the March batch. I understand what you are saying and I am in agreement and also actively doing something about it but that solution is not as easily implemented in the real world as it is on paper.

Well here is a good example of what not to do, lol

I got into mining in late December 2017, and yes I overpaid and bought the miners thru ebay... before prices started falling on mining equipment and bitcoin. (You know FOMO fear of missing out)

So I paid a high premium to get in... (not real smart I know but i was naive)  

Looking back, I'd have been better off spending that money on purchasing bitcoin (assuming I could have hit the low end of the market which I doubt would have happened)... probably could have 2 bitcoin or more if I'd timed it right

It is what it is now though and keep on mining!

But unless the new miners get dirt cheap, or we see a drastic increase in hash power with new machines coming on board, I can't afford to add more miners when I'm not making any money anyway.  Now understand I am not trying to pull any money out from this venture, just let it set and build a nestegg for 5-10 years down the line when I decide to retire.

If it were not for free electricity and me having the cash to invest, I'd be screwed.  But I've also learned a lot (still learning) about mining and bitcoin.  

One thing is for sure, mining is not for the faint of heart!!

Thanks to Kano and to all of you for this Forum and all your help and hard work!

KANO POOL ... THE BEST PLACE TO MINE PERIOD!
