Good morning!

  • We believe we're within a week of completing all known bugfixes to the website. There are a few remaining issues, like the "selected recent shares" list and errant checkboxes in the "live balances" section, which have been fixed but not yet released. We achieved stability with the mining server yesterday afternoon and don't anticipate any restarts until Ethash mining is released.
  • The big changes in the mining server have brought about the redistribution of wealth that was expected. Previously, static coin miners were earning a high proportion of the pool's profits because they tended to mine easy coins, where the stale status was not communicated quickly to the other mining servers when a block was found on one of the servers. After fixing the issue, the share rejection rate increased, and hashrate declined, presumably because some miners reevaluated their profitability once the bug had been resolved. The primary coin reject rate for dynamic miners averages 0.95%, while static miners average 2.8%. Note that reject rates are not necessarily relevant to profits directly, because sometimes it makes sense to mine coins where a lot of shares will be rejected simply because they are so profitable to mine.
  • One of the next features we want to add is charity mining. In addition to charity mining, you'll also be able to tip Constance or Vance. Also upcoming is the ability to specify "destination tags" for coins that require them, like NXT, Monero, and Ripple.
