I wanted to reach out and let everyone know that things are running very smoothly here at Beertendr. There hasn't been a ton of new features due to no spare time (thanks life :P), but the pool is monitored 24/7 and I check in regularly.
Now running 1.1.0 version of MPOS, hope everyone enjoys the updates!
Updates contributor hashrates to show you your ranking if you are in the top 1000 users now. So even if you are not in the top 15, you can at least get an idea of where you are compared to the rest.
The pool server is now rocking double the cores, a whopping 64 cores! We have opened up a new port to cater to the smaller devices such as odroids.
Thanks to #n3rd3d I have up'd the payout structure to 150 VRM for auto and manual payouts. Keep in mind that the higher you withdraw, the higher the network fees. These are fees imposed by the network, not the pool. Also there have been mysql adjustments in hopes to making the site and cronjobs run faster.
Enjoy a brand new coin price section!
Miners, a couple of updates,
Now that most of the enhancements and changes are live I feel like it's even more of a time to give back. All miners, enjoy your 0.5% pool fees!!
The following is now working and/or has been added to the dashboard:
The last round of reboots and security updates has also brought some optimizations. The pool is now running 3x more efficient then before. So lets use the extra processing to mine some more and make it hurt :) . Spread the word and/or find all the CPUs.
The pool has spoken and PPLNS is definitely agreed upon to switch. I just wanted to post a follow up here and let everyone know that I do plan on switching but found out after the fact that there is some software limitations I will have to work through. Looks like MPOS is just old and crusty in some areas and thus doesn't play well with the latest mysql even to the point that the workaround can't fix, ie: PPLNS. I will try to tackle that over some short term amount of time but didn't want to leave everyone here hanging.
We have all seen it at times where there have been users using this pool as just a another hop. Swooping in, stealing shares and then disappearing till the next round. Not only does this unbalance things for the users that are mining on here full time, but it also messes up the algorithms and causes blocks to not be found as efficiently if the hash power was constant.
Patiently waiting for Spectre patches to come out from Canonical. I suspect that the new kernel patches will be out in the next few days which comes with it, another reboot of the server. I will as always, post a 24hr reminder that the server will be rebooted.
Welcome to the new and improved way to keep up to date with the latest pool news. I will make sure to keep everyone up to date with any frontend or backend changes that are going on. As always, feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns and I will be more than happy to address.
