That's not exactly accurate. Based on what I've seen, at your speed you have about a 65% chance of getting a block after about 5 hours. The chance is only 100% after ~24 hours.

Re: A little confused? Solo mining...

The time for the last block is for the entire litecoin network, not for this pool specifically. That the network finds a block in 15 seconds or so is not that surprising given that it has hundreds of TH/s on it.

Re: A little confused? Solo mining...

Because the reported difficulties on those blocks don't seem to match up to the difficulties of the coin networks. Viacoin, for example, has a difficulty of 585K (at least according to WhatToMine). At your hashrate, I'm seeing an expected time for a litecoin block at about 5 hours, so if you're comi...

Re: A little confused? Solo mining...

How long have you been mining at that hashrate without getting a Litecoin block?

Re: A little confused? Solo mining...

Well I don't know what your hashrate is, but difficulty isn't the only factor in finding blocks. However, as an example, presently if you have 100 GH/s solo mining LTC you'd likely find on average 1 block every 5 days. Viacoin with the same hashrate would get about 4 blocks per day. Also I think the...

If you're on an iPad I believe if you hold the sleep/wake button and click the home button you can take a screenshot.

Re: A little confused? Solo mining...

What are some of the other blocks you're getting? They might be the merged mining blocks.

Also just for reference, not that I think it would matter, but it's scrypt, not script

Re: A little confused? Solo mining...

If you're getting blocks that aren't litecoin you're not solo mining.
