[ANN] ypool.net - Largest Primecoin pool
« on: July 26, 2013, 01:33:15 am »
Hi,

this is the official announcement for our Primecoin mining pool ypool.net
As of writing this we are the only Primecoin pool available currently. (Edit: Not the case any longer)

Some stats:
  • One of the largest pools world wide
  • 3% fee
  • 1000 confirmations per block
  • Custom miner software & low latency protocol
  • Already well established - More than 3000 people actively mining each day (over 35000 connected workers in average)
  • High performance - Very low percentage (<0.5%) of rejected shares or miner downtime
  • Active in development - New features coming every few days
  • Very helpful and active community

Link:
http://ypool.net

Once registered, a detailed guide on how to start mining in our pool can be found in the 'How To' section.

I know there have been nay-sayers in the past about the pool, but you guys have really been doing a bang up job of staying interactive with the community and interested in development.

Will you be making a mac version available in the future?

By the way, I'll be adding my i7 3770k to the pool too!

Probably not in the near future, since I don't have a mac available. However, seeing that several people from the community are starting to improve our miner there is a chance that somebody else will do it before us.

yup same here but my miners are still hashing... not sure if they sending shares that are being received.. probably an update or DDOS... hopefully the former...

Yeah, more than likely the webserver is just down (port 80) and the primecoind is running on the mining port, of course, and still working. Had a couple invalid shares about the time I noticed the site down, but otherwise, still humming along.

EDIT: and just as I post this, site is back up, great way to be on top of things, ypool guys!

We did some updates to the database, which slowed down the whole server for a few minutes. It should work fine again by now.

Hello,

Just wondering if you guys have any idea the PPS your pool is getting?? to try and give solo miners a perspective of what is a good PPS these days?

Many thanks

I don't really like the pps measurement. If you modify the sieve size (using the -s parameter) you can easily double your pps rate without actually getting more shares. pps is only good if you want to compare two computers that use the exact same software and configuration (e.g. jhPrimeminer v0.32 32bit with default sieve size 800.000)

That being said, if we assume everyone uses the most recent official version of jhPrimeminer, our pool receives 12.74 shares per second, a miner with 5500 pps gets 24 shares per hour in average (0.00666 per second). So we can estimate the pool to about 10.500.000 pps. It's a nice number that doesn't mean much.

If you want to compare your miner speeds use the shares per hour. It's still not accurate due to the high random factor, but it's better than pps.

I like the recent update you guys made to make payment based on probability of share solving the block, sort of a share difficulty based payment.

I saw your post earlier about the -s option for sieve size, is there documentation for the parameters somewhere? I seem to be striking out on my search so far

Am I the only one who is stuck on the "share system update" page when I login? It will not let me view the stats page or anything except for that message. I've cleared browser data out, used three browsers, and tried on two different computers... lol  ::)

Yeah just you, everything fine my end looking at the pool webpage... not sure what to suggest... maybe try turning your monitor off and back on again.... shake the monitor... maybe the pixels have got stuck?? but seriously maybe try on friends PC and see if you have issue there, or is it your account that has bug in it?

There is a big blue 'Continue' (or something similar) button at the bottom of the message.
