k so that's why I only received a small payout after mining for 5 days without one is because craptsy is holding up withdrawals it not your fault thanks for the updates it sucks cause it just seemed everything was going well that the exchange had to get us outside of that the ports I'm running on seem to be good

Yeah that's correct. We have really around 0.1 BTC to be distributed, but about 0.06-0.07 BTC of that is being held by Cryptsy. The distribution that happened today was only worth around 0.036 BTC.

It looks like the modified payment model is indeed working... it's just unfortunate that Cryptsy is in the position it's currently in. We've eliminated using them entirely from out system now.

Still need to update the "getting started" page with x11 and sha256 instructions.
Seems I overlooked this, I'll look into this in the morning, thx.

Actually getting this error msg on the payout page.

Currently, the BTS daemon is offline, I've notified BCL, once its back online, that page should resume working. We've also undergone various changes over the last day to move away from using Cryptsy as they've proven incredibly unreliable in being able to process withdrawals in the last 2 days.

Status Update

Those of you mining may have noticed that payouts have gone past the threshold that we set for the pool. This is due to cryptsy delaying the transfer of BTC out of their exchange. There have been a whirlwind of other accusations related to cryptsy payouts including class actions.

Some of our more profitable coins were only on cryptsy, but there isn't more profit when you simply are not getting paid out.

I decided that we would cut our losses, and use what coins we can, and a few new ones that we can exchange at Poloniex, and Bittrex.

Between these two exchanges, we currently have about 17 coins between all three algos that the pool currently supports. In addition to this, we also have enabled merge mining with DOGE. We are working out a way to make this part of the bonus payout.

The migration has not been completed yet. As you can see, after we had updated all the wallets and the config for the pool it appears all our charts suddenly stopped working. This has been reported to @Freebieservers along with the updated deposit addresses to start being directed at the other exchanges. If you ignore the charts you can see from the workers below on the Dashboard the current coins that are being mined.

Hopefully we will see the payout make its way out of crytpsy, but we aren't holding out a lot of hope given all the accusations and the shrinking volume happening there.

Please continue to test the pool and report any other issues you are finding, or things missing that you think should be there in regards to features and/or reporting. If you have been mining elsewhere while we are still in development and have seen some good success with other coins, also feel free to share and we can consider adding those to the pool if they are available for exchange on Polo/Bittrex.

I can confirm he's shared the required information in the group chat.
That said, its sad to see these delays - thanks to external factors.
Hybridd might be off until later today (exams) but am sure he'll update as soon as he's on.

As BCL mentioned - do share inputs as it would help come out with a far better product.

Nice improvement.  Any other plans to share on the future of the pool?  The previous one was interesting because you ran the delegates to provide a bonus, what's the plan to make this one extra profitable?

There are plans to incorporate bonus payouts. More on that will come out on the production launch.

It is 0.04 for the entire pool, unfortunately, cryptsy is being very slow with withdrawals =/
We liquidate alts at Cryptsy move the BTC to Poloniex and then buy the BTS.

Quote
        [Cryptsy] BTC: 0.00968221
        [Unomp] scrypt BTC: 0.0345651
        [Unomp] x11 BTC: 0.01591743
        [Unomp] sha256 BTC: 0.0026986
        [Poloniex] BTC: 0.03645680
Is it possible to use a different exchange other than Cryptsy? https://www.cryptocoinsnews.com/cryptsys-bitcoin-withdrawal-troubles-continue/
Perhaps Bittrex?

The current choice in exchange is largely determined by who supports the coins we are mining for the most profitability. I realize it is not ideal, and frankly wish there was more competition with volume to consider, but there isn't at present. This however is not meant to be permanent.

There's a pending withdrawal for 0.01 from C->P still currently.
Ok.  Cool.  No problem.  Just so long as i know.  Thank you.

Keep in mind that the rate is also a moving rate that will change as the pool volume changes. We will attempt to keep it in line closer to a once per day payout. The decision to move it up actually happened when we were getting 1GH script mining, and then it stopped. So it might make sense for us to dial it back to 0.2 again.

We are still testing though.. this payout will help us determine if the recent fix in share distribution has worked also.

We've changed the way users stats is displayed. It will show you all of the shares you own since the last payout, and tell you how much of the shares you own %-wise.

Payouts have been adjusted to now occur at 0.04 BTC.

An estimate can be calculated like this:
BTS = 0.04 BTC / RATE_BTC_BTS * %-Holding

i.e. if you hold 10% of all shares since the last payout, and suppose the current market value of BTS is 0.00000920,
BTS = 0.04 /  0.00000920 * 0.10 = 434.7826

It appears that the .04btc payout limit is per algo?  Was thinking it would be total for pool…  Though i am unsure what is the most fair.
