I agree it takes forever to mine .01! especially on top of 1%. I just started and only get 2600mhash, so its like its almost not worth it. MAYBE if it was safe to keep a lot of coin online it would be ok, but i wanna get my coin in my wallet as quick as possible..so .01 adds up! Especially with the value increasing as much as it has in the past few days.
Right, that's thirteen cents and rising, out of $1.23.. That's 10.6%. Add in the 1% fee and that makes it 11.6%. If we weren't getting the 25% bonus, I'd definitely be out of here already.

It's at 60% right now. Why is this?
The efficiency is at 60% because currently the stratum allows a large variance between accepted and rejected shares.

At no point is the pool less efficient, it's just not as aggressive with banning some users off the pool.

This might change soon.

It will be lowered to .001 tomorrow due to the sudden jump in price. Thanks for the feedback.

I need help mining in this pool with a PC behind router/proxy at my University.

Been trying to use minerd with the proxy option but it times out.

Could I connect to the pool using ssh tunneling?

Er, is the fee going to be lowered soon? I don't mean to hound you guys, but I've been waiting to withdraw after hearing the fee will be lowered.

I am trying to mine on your pool using two usb block erupters with bfgminer. I can connect fine, worker is set up, however all of my shares get rejected due to "too low difficulty". How can I fix this.

Hi Jay_UK,
My understanding, is that block erupters do not come in X11 flavours so if you're pointing Bitcoin miners at a Darkcoin pool, you'll just get rejections because you're processing shares using the wrong cryptographic algorithms.
Using these block erupters against the pool is actually earning you hour long automatic bans by our stratum server.

Ok, thanks. That makes sense for the errors. I thought bitcoin and darkcoin were essentially the same thing except for the obfuscation in the block chain.

We have decided that at this time we will not be lowering the withdrawal fee from .01. This is the universal fee for every single Darkcoin pool.

It costs valuable human hours and expensive resources to both operate and run this site and the mining pools. We would not be able to continue running the pool if the fee was outrageously low.

As it is now, the pool is operating at a humungous loss from the extra reward and as it stands, there are still 66 blocks left with the added bonus.

Since I've personally told you that I would lower the fee, I will honor a one time withdrawal fee at .001 for you only Kumatora. After this, the fee will return back to normal. Please email [email protected] for the details.

You are more then welcome to find a pool with a lower withdrawal fee then .01. From the research I have done, there are none.

Thank you,
Propulsion

Just found this:
http://simpledrk.com/

No minimum Payout
Payouts are processed every time a block is solved. No minimum balance required. Payouts are computed using PPLNS with a 0% fee. The default donation amount is 1%, lowerable to 0%

Hi Kumatora,
You can choose to offset the transaction fee to something you're comfortable with by increasing your withdrawal threshold. For example, if you're comfortable with a transaction fee of 0.001 per DRK, then increase your automated payout threshold to 10 DRK.
Just a thought.

Hi Fra55,

This is something I've been looking in to. I'll update here as we make progress, but please rest assured, we're serving valid shares in a timely manner.

Thanks.

Well my efficiency was up to 99.5%, so no problems for me, but the pool efficiency was at 3%/4% which is really odd.

The pool underwent a DDOS. As of now, it is back up to 99% efficiency.

Hi.
The pool's effiency is 1.30% right now.
Unfortunately it becomes to be very common last days. What is going on?

Hi Shrike,
It's caused by mis-configured miners, typically non x11 ASICs being pointed at the pool. I'm sampling traffic during the attacks so that we can develop some DoS protection for this specific kind of attack, without occurring unacceptable additional load for the DoS protection itself.
Thanks.

Currently operating with a 0% fee to encourage more miners until further notice.

I am getting regular time outs. I hash with no problems for 20-30mins, then I get this error for a while

Hi!
I have difficulties with withdrawing. I'm trying to unlock manual payout form entering my pin. It says that confirmation email is sent and asks to click the link in the email. But the email arrives after a huge delay when all sessions/tokens are expired and I have to unlock with pin again. Im trying to payout all day long with no success.
Please fix.

Also the contacting form at mining.darkcointalk.org/index.php?page=contactform doesn't work.

Hi Shrike, changed the email host recently. Just tested the contact form, emails are working.

Looking into the the cashout option now. Should be resolved by the end of the day.

Hey Shrike,
With the assistance of propulsion, I've reverted the settings back to our previous e-mail provider. Please let me know if you're still experiencing issues.
Thanks.
