Guys I'm looking at the pools stats and this is crazy. We have 40% more hashing power than 6-7 months ago, and yet we are expected to only find 1/2 as many blocks. That's crazy!

Gotta add more hash to keep up!   Simple as that.

Was there again a small issue with the NL node? 28.04 ~17:00 UTC
Yeah it actually reconnected a few times Sad
All the reconnects were immediate though, so no alerts.
Well the AWS option is in the UK, so I guess that's what I could move it to since it will probably have similar response times for Iceland.
OK that'll be the next node I'll update.
I've added a new node: UK uk.kano.is
This is the replacement for the NL node that will be switched off at some point.

Firstly, no one needs to do anything, all changes are automatic and DNS is now set so that NL points to UK.

The ping time from the UK node to the main server is a few ms faster than the NL node.
The ping time from the UK node to Iceland is a couple of ms slower than the NL node.
So ... possibly about a ms faster overall Smiley

Anyone who reconnects to NL from now on (a few miners have already) will connect to the new UK node.

In 8 hours (12:00 UTC) I'll failover all miners left on the NL node so that they'll automatically reconnect to the UK node.

Mine on! Smiley
Done.
All miners still on NL should have failed back to the new UK node.
Both nl.kano.is and the new uk.kano.is point to the UK node.

Hi sorry... I resolved the issue, although it took me 7 hours of trial and error due to the nature of the failure on one of the switches.  Therefore I locked that other thread.

Fortunately, it was NOT PFSense, but rather a Netgear GS316 gone flaky.  Would have been a lot shorter day if it, and an old TP-Link switch I used for testing, had just outright died instead of kinda-work-sometimes.
Glad you got it going and so sorry it took so long to figure it out.  I work with digital signage and have seen ports die over the years.  We also have video/audio transmitters where the power adapter gets "weak" but still runs things.  I am sure you have all kinds of spares and was a huge amount of connections / infrastructure to test, but all the smaller miners (like me) should take note that just about anything can get flakey (or flat out die) over the years and to be prepared with backup equipment / configuration settings just in case.

For people that love numbers.  Here are my stats for the month with an average of about 15.99 THs.

If you want to see some additional information including dollars earned when the block is found and current dollars, you can upload your rewards to a free minergain account.  Create and confirm the account, setup the kano pool then upload on the rewards tab.  

** edit: We also have historical dollar to about 2 dozen international currencies since the first of 2017 so I could quickly add a preference setting to allow you to see prices in your currency.  Let me know if this is of interest.

I've been mining to Exodus desktop wallet for a while. Today when I opened it I got a warning that it seems like I'm mining there or keep getting small frequent payments and because of the fees adding up from number of small payments they are at the moment over half my balance if I was to send my BTC somwhere else Huh

I paniced for a while, but there must have been something wrong with the info because now when looking at my available balance it's about 96 % of my total balance. Hope this is the case.

Anyway Exodus doesn't seem to be the right choice to mine to. I know I read about Electrum somewhere (maybe that was discussed in this thread) and I also installed it and changed my payout address from Kano there today to try it out. I'll see what happens when the next block matures.

When sending BTC from Electrum there seems to be a setting for the fees depending on how long (how many blocks) I'm prepared to wait for until the transaction. As I find Exodus much more newbie-friendly I was thinking about mining to Electrum for a while (maybe 5 blocks to try it out) and then try to send everything to Exodus at once with the fee setting targeted at, for example within, 10 blocks which would keep the fees down.

Is this a good or bad idea and what would you insted suggest to keep the fees as low as possible?

It's always safest to mine to an address where you have control over the private key. If you export your private key to Electrum you can make use of Electrum's fee setting without needing to change mining address.

I consolidate whenever I see a large amount of small TX's (10+) - latest Electrum 3.1.3 tells me in advance how many bytes the transaction is going to be and I can set 1 sat/byte directly. My personal practice is mining to 1 hardware wallet, and consolidate to a second hardware wallet.

Thanks nazzer for the input.

I probably should have done as you wrote, but I'm up and running now with Electrum 3.1.3 since yesterday. I used and stored the key created in Electrum and set up the BTC-adrress, also created in Electrum, to my settings in Kano. Payment for the last block was sent to Electrum so it seems to work just fine.

I assume you mean the pass phrase (12 different words) by private key? It might be possible to create a new key in Electrum, but I still havent looked into that.

I still don't have any such amounts of bitcoin that I can't afford to lose, but I assume that a hardware wallet is the way to go in the near future.

Mine on!

Regarding wallets: I'm a firm believer in running a full Bitcoin Core node.   Its fine if you listen only, but at least you are in full control of your private keys.

I have one wallet in full communication mode, DNATing port 8333 to it so that it can fully participate in the network.  That is my contribution to blockchain health.  I use it to store small quantities of bitcoins I use for daily purchases.

I also run a closed wallet that only connects to the DNATed one over my LAN.  It has no other network connectivity - ensured by both the lack of DNAT forwarding on the firewall, and via UFW rules blocking all incoming traffic on the box itself (just in case my LAN gets hacked).  Access is via the console only.  That is my equivalent of cold storage.  The only time I hook up a console is when I want to send coins to the first wallet.  (I briefly allowed SSH access to facilitate cut & pasting receiving and sending addresses to the first wallet.)  This wallet, with its limited and fixed in number keys, is backed up to a USB device that is stored in my safety deposit box.  Encrypted of course.

I mine bitcoin for a living, and I mine at Kano.is!

In Electrum, the 12 words are your "seed". What that means is, if you happen to lose the hard drive in your computer, you can use the "seed" on a fresh install of Electrum to get your private keys, addresses and any bitcoin you had, recovered. The private keys are generated for each address you have. Electrum generates a bunch when it's installed. Never give anyone your private keys.
Electrum has alot of great options, you just need to understand, the importance of, and how to use them.

Make sure you set up a password on your Electrum wallet as well. Check out the forum thread below, for tips and How to's. Goodluck!!!

Coz diff increased.

First block 1-May-2017 464270 Diff = 521,974,519,553
Current blocks Diff = 4,022,059,196,165

So Diff increased ... 7.7 times since then.

So you'd expect to find, with the same hash rate, only 1/7.7 as many blocks per day compared to a year ago.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't this also mean that each one of our miners is expected to generate only 1/7.7 = 12% the amount of BTC it was expected to generate a year ago? With the diff increasing this fast it can't be much longer before the current generation of miners are no longer profitable without a serious jump in BTC value.

22 BTClocks in the month of April!!! 2 more than March!!!


We're doing great!!! That extra hashrate has really helped. Going into May, I've got some new things I've been working on for
Kano Pool Promotion. We also have K.P. pass the Hash, working on Kano.Island as well. I'm eager to see how things are
going there.

As usual, if anyone has any suggestions, please share your thoughts. Big Thanks to everyone for using our Kano Pool signature

You are correct - difficulty rising means that, in order to stay competitive, you must constantly upgrade your farm and added more hash power.

However, no one can predict what the price will do. Even though they were very old, when the price was at $20k, some last gen miners were profitable to run even.

I remember 2 or 3 years ago people running 1TH+- miners (S5's/S4+'s,SP20's, C1's) and they only profited about $20-30 per machine , per month and it was STILL profitable to run even at high power prices. Today, an S9 still earns a minimum of +50% even if you're paying the US average of power costs.

I wouldn't recommend an S7 or below though unless you're using solar and have a huge deficit that the crappy power companies give you a laughable credit of around $0.03 on. Then those are still profitable as well.

Go Big or Go Home.

I have a noob question here.  I just received a Terminus R808 pod miner which I pointed to this pool over the weekend.  My miner was online for the last three blocks found.  They have all matured so I would have expected a small fraction to be sent to my online wallet.  Is this amount so small that it gets all eaten up in fees with each transfer?  Just wondering why I have not seen anything yet.

Yes I know it is not profitable.  Just trying to learn the ropes and have some fun.

Thanks.

The reason to use tcping, is to compare the different nodes to work out which is closest.
But don't take too much notice of the actual numbers it returns vs a normal ping Smiley
