post #2231 of 22532
Is there some sort of bonus for solving blocks? Such as for alt/scrypt coins?

I'm mining LTC in a pool and have solved 2 so far, not sure if it really matters or not.

Oh ok, yeah I know how the multipools work. I shamefully must admit I use one of them. frown.gif

I find it generates me slightly more (0.005BTC per day or so with 1 MH/s) to mine on a multipool than it does to dedicated mine DGC currently.

I find I can do better on my own averaging out over a couple days of mining when I just pick the coins my self. Much more rewarding too (and not just money wise).

Quite being lazy and get off multipool and middlecoin...they are killing coins biggrin.gif

Because those pools account for a large portion of the hashrate on the dgc network. When they switch to a different coin, the hasrate drops, then the difficulty drops. At such a low difficulty, that coin is very profitable. So they immediately switch back to it after a difficulty drop, and then the difficulty rises again... and that repeats...


Edit: I've stated my opinion on multipools before. I believe their theory on how to be profitable is wrong, even in the short term.

It's not just multipools though. I'm not part of any multipools but if I see a coin's difficulty being quite low, I switch. I'm sure there are some big time farmers that do the same. With everyone switching to a coin with low difficulty, it'll cause it to spike. Then some other coin's diff will drop to some stupidly low rate and then we all switch to that one.

It's true there are some big farms doing that, but not as much, and not as frequently. The reason big farmers stay away from small coins, is because the markets don't have the volume they need to be profitable. Most of the time, the big farmers will mine a new coin for a day or two, just to build a nice wallet in case the coin succeeds in the long term. Then they go back to BTC, LTC or other bigger coins.

Small miners like us do tend to switch coins frequently. But it's takes a long time for enough small miners to individually switch to a coin to have a significant impact on its difficulty. It would never cause the sudden and large diff changes that we see on DGC as a result of the multipools.

I think there is a reward if you solve a block at we-mine-ltc.com if i remember right.

Ah so it's pool based, whether they reward or do anything special about it or not.

Hmm seems my miner has some problem... restarted it to put it into windows, and it started trying to flash the BIOS....

Got past that part, but now it won't POST with 2nd gpu installed, dunno if the slot burnt out or what. I may have to look into a custom case with some pci extensions so they can run cooler and away from the rest of the mobo. Way to much heat in there.

Hi, I’m the developer of the Bitcoinium android app and thought some of you might be interested in its features. I have just released a new version today.

Bitcoinium allows you to monitor the price on all major exchanges and also allows you to keep track of your miner's hashrate and payouts on a couple of mining pools. It also supports most alt. coins found on BTC-e. Additional info and screenshots here: Google Play

The app is free and open-sourced. It is hosted on GitHub: https://github.com/veken0m/bitcoinium

PS: My OCN account is fairly old and I now go by the moniker “veken0m” on Google Play, Reddit, Bitcointalks.org, Github, etc...

Thanks for stopping by, gonna give it a shot.

EDIT: guys, we need more miners at http://beeeeer.org/

The share valuation is much better than ypool's, and if they improve on it and we find more blocks it's gonna be really profitable for the small time miners, and eliminate the variance of solo mining or ypool with it's share system favoring the big dogs.
