Hey.
Maybe there is an opportunity to place an additional server somewhere in Europe? To ping was less? Not all miners from America

This is something that we've investigated for a while but determined would not improve profitability. The problem is that the servers still need to communicate with a master server in the United States to get the latest coin data and assign miners to coins. Coin assignment is a serial operation - each person's coin assignment is limited by the amount of hashrate assigned to other coins.

While I don't have time to repeat the entire explanation here, there's a full writeup of it elsewhere. In the end, there would be more stale shares and higher orphan rates than having the miner directly connect to the master server.

There will be a new option added to the "Payout proportions" box on the "Settings" page. When set to "constant earnings," the behavior will be as now. When set to "portfolio targeting" mode, the customer will be asked to enter a value greater than 0.0 and less than or equal to 180.0 days. The query that determines actual payout proportions will now consider the value of coins earned during the time period and will treat overweight coins as if they are in error. By treating these coins as if they are in error, the changes are minor and we can get this code released as soon as the tax-related tasks are finished.

Thanks for that suggestion!

As to some of ajs's other suggestions, the biggest problem I see with those is that the customer would have to enter payout addresses for every coin in the system because it's not known which of all the coins is going to satisfy those criteria in advance. Would people use those features if they only considered the coins with payout addresses available?


Thanks! This also sounds like a good way to implement it.

I'm working with Constance on trying to figure out which of these feature requests to implement next, and it seems to me that there are two philosophies. We can either focus on adding things, or we can focus on customizing existing things. We can add payouts in a new coin, or we can make it possible to pay existing coins to multiple payout addresses, each of which is equally difficult. Or, we could create a chart to show how much money was earned for each specific worker, or we can allow customers to move around the charts that already exist.

Should we focus on adding new things, or on customizing existing things?

I think you should have payouts available for at least the top 25 coins by market cap, and 25 coins by volume. So my vote is new things.

My vote is also new things, I think even top 10 by market cap would be good progress. It's annoying to see that we have payouts available in things like titcoin, but not EOS, Tron, or Stellar. I understand there are likely good reasons for this, though.

I think for someone who does this as a hobby and doesn't keep up to date on every coin out there, some sort of graphical representation of coins you can get paid out in that shows relative market cap and liquidity in the market would be useful (even if just a spreadsheet would be fine). Even if not pretty, just having that information available without having to look up each coin individually might make the research process easier for individuals.

For instance, if I want to branch out from the well known coins, I could sort the coins that are offered for payout by Prohashing by market cap and/or liquidty, and use that as my starting point. For me personally, I stay away from very small marketcap and even very low liquidity coins. While it may not be all that beneficial for some people, I think for those that are newer to mining it might provide a useful bit of information.

I appreciate it, but I think that the issue is more being able to quickly look at specifically what coins prohashing offers for payout and having an idea of the coins relative size. If only the top 100 were available then it would be easy, but I dont even recognize 75% of the payout options so its daunting to try and look up every one. But if I could see that Titcoin has almost no volume or market cap, then i wouldn't waste my time.

Coin360 has a watchlist feature, that would allow you to select only prohashing coins.
Markets.bitcoin uses the little hearts to do the same....
