Problem discovered with equihash earnings

Post by Steve Sokolowski » Sun Jan 20, 2019 8:52 am

I discovered and some customers reported a problem with equihash earnings. The problem occurred when we changed the way that equihash difficulties are calculated, so that they are the same as other pools. Affected customers see equihash earnings being credited at a rate 1/256 times the correct rate.

We determined that no money is actually being lost, and therefore we aren't going to take emergency action that would impact miners of other algorithms. When Chris gets up around 3:00pm EST, he will be able to release a fix that does not require the mining server to be restarted. After the fix is released, he'll the multiply affected miners' earnings by 294. The extra 15% is per our policy where we promise 15% extra when we make a mistake.

There is no need for miners of any algorithm, including equihash, to take any action, and everyone can continue mining as normal. We apologize for the issue, and thanks for your patience.

Hi Steve,

Will the Equihash payback be retroactive from 5:47 pm EST when the problem was first discovered?

The earnings crediting problem has now been resolved. Chris will be updating the balances later today.
