Re: A Bitcoin.com mining pool?

jwithrowa0, Very cool!
If I may be so bold as to ask:
  • How many watts total is your solar system?
  • Is it able to charge the batteries enough during the day to keep the miner running all night?
  • How much did the whole setup cost?
  • Was there a government subsidy of the price as well?
Thanks for posing something so interesting!
The gentleman I am partnering with is handling the solar system while I handle the mining rigs, so my answers will be rough. As of now, the system has the wattage to comfortably handle two S9's during peak sun and potentially a third if we wanted to stretch it. Battery capacity is the primary constraint - right now the five batteries can only power one S9 through the night but we can scale that quickly.

As for cost, I only have rough figures but I was surprised at how cheap it was. My partner sources the panels for less than $100 per and he has 5 or 6 installed currently , the big inverter for the antminer is roughly $300 and the small inverter for the router and labtops is roughly $150, the batteries are a little over $100 per and he has five installed at the moment. I'm guessing here, but you might add another $200 or so for all of the cables and capacity monitors... and that's pretty much it. He installed everything himself so labor cost was zero. I will confirm this, but my impression is that this system cost roughly 2 grand, give or take.

As for government subsidy, I don't know for sure but I doubt it - though I would never fault anyone for claiming any deduction they could. I think the bulk of the solar credits have expired in the U.S.... they did successfully funnel hundreds of millions to choice (now bankrupt) alternative energy companies after all. Also, my partner sources most of these parts through P2P e-commerce sites and locally. Actually, he built his first solar panel himself using an old shower door as a base though he found it less efficient so he ponied up for the rest.

Certainly not the right section for this, but since we are chatting about Bitcoin mining and scalability I thought you guys might enjoy the journal entry I posted on Zenconomics today: http://www.zenconomics.com/the-gamma-phenomenon

Here's a photo of our server rack at the Bitcoin.com office that contains the S7 that is mining on the pool as well as some other fun equipment.

The Bitcoin.com mining pool is now testing heavily on Bitcoin main net with about one Peta hash total.
With this level of hash rate, we will mine our first block within the next few days.
Once we are sure everything is working properly, we will really step things up!

Yes, we are running Bitcoin Unlimited.
It is also important to note that it has the ability to support Bitcoin Classic and Bitcoin Core blocks.

Re: A Bitcoin.com mining pool?

Pardon the rookie question, but how is the block size determined with Bitcoin Unlimited where individual miners set their own preference?

Does this create a scenario in which the pool that successfully mines the next block determines its size thus each block may be different in size? Does it average out block size across all network preferences?

Also, what are the pro's and con's for individual miners choosing a higher block size opposed to a lower one?

If anyone has the time to bring me up to speed or point me towards existing resources on this I would greatly appreciate it!

We are still doing closed beta testing with just a few miners.
We hope to open it to the public some time next week.

Satoshi must be smiling upon our pool.
Without much hash rate at all, while just doing some closed testing, we just mined our 4th block.

Im just wondering about this pool because it can find block in no time

I have few question:
1. Can i possibly make money if i join your pool?
2. What miner does it needs?
It depends on your electricity cost, and what mining equipment you use.
To be honest, if you don't already know this information, Bitcoin mining isn't likely for you.

Im planning to buy 1x S9 or 2x s7, im little bit confused, theres no problem at electricity at all . Im really interested with this thing .
If you have "free" or somehow subsidized electricity, you are almost guaranteed to make money.

There are numerous mining calculators out there that can give you a ballpark profitability estimate... just plug in your hashing power and electricity costs.

http://www.coinwarz.com/calculators/bit ... calculator is one such calculator but there are plenty others.
