Re: Worker appear as a line without any information

This problem seems to vary with your choice of web browser. I am usually using Firefox 59.0.2 (64 bit), and I get the one line only for worker status (see my screenshot above.) But when I tried Chrome 65.0.3325.181 (Official Build) (64-bit) the worker status looks fine, shows both miners and the co...

Re: A little confused? Solo mining...

What I do is this. I bought a ton of AntMiners on eBay cheap. The ones that use more electricity than what the produce. So, I run all these AntMiners and sell the hashing power. My electricity is free because I have a natural gas well on my property and a huge natural gas generator. So, I run them ...

Re: A little confused? Solo mining...

Yes. Look at the probability of finding a block chart. You have a higher chance of finding a block the longer you run, but don't hit 100% until about 24 hours out. You can't take the expected value of something as a guaranteed value. As an example, the expected value of rolling a six-sided die is 3....

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...

Where are you getting 15 seconds? I'm sure they'd love to find a block every 15 seconds at this pool, but that's not happening.

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...

Re: A little confused? Solo mining...

It looks fine to me. You're getting merged mining blocks.
