Coins mined are no where near mining calculator for my hash power?

Post by halkibsi » Thu Dec 28, 2017 10:00 pm

I have two Antimer L3+. The mining calculator at coinwarz show that I should mine around 344 coins per day. While this is marginally true, I understand that due to network difficulty I can get only 300 coins, plus or minus a few.

But I am making around 230 coins a day, which is a HUGE difference. Is anyone else experiencing this?

My Antminers are setup with c=Verge in the password.

welcome to the real world. those calcs are crap and only give you an Est. for that exact minute.

are you solo mining or just pps and taking that coin as payout?

These exact same calculators have been spot on when I was mining LTC at antpool and litecoinpool.org, why is it drastically different for Verge on prohashing?

Yes.. PPS and taking the coin as payout.

Where do you see how many coins you have mined in a day? E.g. 230

ok i see you are pps on verge only. ok well since everybody and their brother thinks they can get rich mining it as well, the calcs are going to be wrong.
It seems to be popular since the big one was found here a few days ago.. normally when you pps 1 coin you are losing money when that coin is not profitable for the rest of the pool to mine. of course solo mining you take all the risk. try mining pps 1 full day no special coin and see the difference

It’s also because litecoin resets its target every 3 days. So you will get a better calculation. Where verge retargets it’s difficulty after every block I believe. So it might be 79,000 one min and then 250,000 the next. So depending on when you opened that calculator will determine the difficulty you calculate at.
