ok heres an example that maybe will help a little

check yours too

i have some older S model antminers that i mine directly to my wallet. anyways i see the miners at times found blocks in my miner status page but i cant find anywhere in explorer. when i look at rejected and stale shares guess what i found them.

Other times i see blocks found only to come back an hour later and look and that number is cut in half. after doing some investigating i found that not only here but many many pools the DB will get hung up and report the same blocks to your miner a couple of times. usually this gets corrected at a later time but can cause a headache in the meantime.

Now the main thing i like about PH is the blocks found section as it is usually pretty dam correct in what you have actually found. It only counts those blocks one time regardless of what your miner says you found.

Hopefully that sheds a little light on maybe an issue you are having

https://prohashing.com/explorer/Donatio ... 3867abe8e/




Hit next and start there.looks like they all made it on the ledger/block explorer. I just watched block numbers and times.did the occasional cheak to see if they were still going to the same wallet adress .

So as i said looks like prohashing got them and hasnt credited me or the pool for them

I do not think the BLOCKS FOUND on your page goes back all that far.
If I'm not mistaken, Its like the hashrate and effeciency, takes recordings/snapshots/math from the past 2 hours.
Take a look at the times on them, how far back does the found blocks go? More than 2 hours back?
Were the rest of your blocks found outside of the recording time that the found blocks page goes back?


And again, you are in PPS not solo mode, so that .06 cents is divided by everyone on the pool.
Are you very sure that the .06/10000 didn't get paid out? did you maybe blink and miss the .0000000000001 coin that was added to your daily total?
That is how you get paid even when you arent finding blocks all the rest of the time.

Apple look at the block quantity.vs the 16 minites or so the miner was running .now allow for up to two or three minites for the prohashing wallet to comferm and pass the info onto the explorer


Basic as look at the time seperation between the blocks (sometimes a few in one second) on the explorer.see the depositing adress..... match it to prohashings wallet. To easy ehh?

I wish there was a voting system on these forums so i could just downvote each and every one of your posts.

Ive been messing with solo mining for the last 16 hours and have found this issue with other coins also
Ive been using various difficulty and three different coins. turning merged mining on and off- still happens either way
the issue only realy effect me when i was using the solo command and didnt retrieve any where near what i should have vs miner stats/profit report

My l3 will summit blocks in large quantitys on low difficulty coins due to how ive tuned it and they arnt getting addressed,I used yesterdays profit report (started yesterday) on the home page to look at the donation coins mined vs payed vs what i expected as i was using =m (which i didnt get any where near the expected amount too blocks i found).

some thing funny is going on can you please look into it

heres a screenshot of it just happening

As promised, I got around to investigating this issue today.

The first thing I did was to review the records in the database. It seems that you orphaned a lot of blocks, because that network is very easy and there are many miners, from our pool and others, mining it. It looks like about 20% of the blocks you mined were orphaned.

After that, though, I wasn't able to do any further investigation because the screenshots don't show the exact timeframe during which the blocks were found. All I see is that you were mining for 16 minutes and 22 seconds. Could you send me the exact start time when the 16 minutes began, so that I can run queries to get more information?
