Equihash profitability issue resolved

Post by Steve Sokolowski » Thu Sep 19, 2019 12:04 pm

Recently, some customers reported that equihash profitability was 20% lower than expected. We spent about 80 hours researching the issue and weren't able to figure out the cause until Chris discovered a log file that was recording errors for equihash price data. It turns out that, when a mining server was restarted, the WAMP server tried to compare the current profitability of the restarted server (which was none, because no miners had yet connected) with the previous profitability, and 25% of shares were lost as a result. This number tracks exactly in line with people who said that they could earn 20% more with Nicehash.

Our queries indicate that the equihash profitability issue was resolved and that earnings should now be about 5% higher than other pools. Could someone confirm that?
