Equihash algo paying less than it should

Postby juanfrand » Fri May 18, 2018 10:30 am

Hello guys, I'm noticing that Equihash algo is paying way less than it shows in main page or WAMP.

I've been loosing money since 2 days ago approx, so I stopped mining Equihash.

Did you make some changes on it? Or why you think this is happening?

Thank you in advance!

Kind regards,
Juan

The algorithm can't be paying less than is listed, unless your miners are more inefficient than average. The listing comes from the average share value inserted into the database.

On the other hand, it is paying less than can be earned normally because of a known issue with equihash and NiceHash miners, where NiceHash miners earn 35% above expected value during times the pool is profitable due to the way the load balancing algorithm works. We fixed the issue and plan to deploy that on Sunday, and then both the actual and displayed earnings will rise by 5%. I'll be writing a post about that later in the day.

Thank you for the clarification Steve, I’ll be waiting to read your post on Sunday.

CSZiggy, I’ve been mining Equihash for months... if I didn’t understand that i would be bankrupt by now :D .

Thanks anyway!
Kind regards,
Juan
