Unfortunately I was pool mining...

Note that I did not receive anything extra for finding it!

But still! One of my Antminer S3+ found a block shortly after I restarted them.

Has anyone else found one?

EDIT: I've switch to eligius.st pool.

Would of been a lot better if it was solo mining but then again might of never found the block solo mining as pool mining is combined power so its tough one to judge but none the less good one for finding the block would be nice if you actually got the 25 BTC for it would be nice Christmas for you Smiley

Maybe back in 2010 you could have, but now its like a jackpot if you do so.
Without a pool chances are almost none.
I found 2 blocks  within 3 or 4 days in 2011 on a solo mining  ~200 Mhash computer Wink
Old good times!!
That's so illustrative of how high the difficulty has gone since those days. Simply incredible.

FInding a block is amazing and rare, you could have got 25 BTC reward, if you werent part of a pool.
But its hard to predict, if you ever will.

Hitting the block solo on an altcoin is a nice rush too. It's exciting to be the moving part in the blockchain process.

There is no way to compare finding block BTC to Alts Smiley Difference is far too big Smiley But it's true - it is always exciting Wink

Still have yet to find a block myself since the ASIC revolution, and I'm hashing 5 THash. Back when I was hashing 3 or so GHash on GPUs, I wound up discovering 11 blocks as part of a pool. It is luck and risk really. I look back and do the math thinking I could have earned 550 BTC at that time, but reality due to pool mining is I earned half that. I miss the days of pulling in 10 BTC a week... Cheesy

GPU mining back in 2010 would porbably be really cool and easy. When was the pool system intrduced?

How did you earn only 50% of what you should have earned because of pool mining??

No, you're mining towards the pool's wallet and there is absolutely no way to redirect it.

Clarifications on Pool vs Solo Mining

There seems to be a lot of (common) misconceptions when it comes to "block finding". Mainly with the pool-miner who "found the block" regretting that they didn't solo-mine because "look, i'd have 25btc now all for me". Firstly, if every pool only paid out the blockfinder, there would be little point in mining in a pool - you would be better off just solo mining like everyone else - so it works both ways - you all get paid for the shares you submit.

Anyway, now more to the main point.

When you "stratum mine" on a pool (https://mining.bitcoin.cz/stratum-mining) - You're given parts of the pool's block template, with which to "work" - which contains unique header information different to all the other miners on the pool - then you add the nonce/extranonces and so on for your asic to increment and test the hashes are below the difficulty target - meaning that you are only checking a part of the entire possibility of all variations. So finding a block in this scenario is entirely different to "solo mining", in which you would have to check all parts of the block together.
