[Anorak.Tech] ETH Mining Pool - New PPLNS Rewards


Maybe the rig IP address plays a part? Although this would not work out well for those that don’t have static addresses from their ISP.


It appears to be based off the wallet address, at least from the evidence of the size of the payout I received and which wallet the payout went to.


Sorry to be the squeaky wheel here, I’m looking at my round share % after more than 24 continuous mining and for the 400MH/s contributed, I’m seeing ~0.42% share. Granted, this depends on the pools total hashrate, and I ran these:

400/50,000 = 0.0080 = 0.80% round share
400/60,000 = 0.0067 = 0.67% round share
400/70,000 = 0.0057 = 0.57% round share

Am I missing some other factor? Or was the pool hashrate much higher 36 hours ago?


PPLNS is always changing and the current trend is to complain about all the blocks we are finding, or haven’t you heard?


Sometimes sarcasm is fun but this time I’m looking for a legitimate answer.

I don’t see how “PPLNS always changing” answers the question. Given a 24hr+ window of time I should be at peak loyalty, then calculating my hashrate vs pool hashrate should give me my round share (see discrepancy and examples above).

Edit: Unless the assumption that it takes 24 hours for a full ramp is not correct? Does it take 2x, 3x longer?


I’ve been under the assumption it is 24 hour ramp up, but nowhere is it written in stone.


Not sure man. My 24 hour hash rate is 370 and my round share is 0.64%. 370 / 50000 * 100 = 0.74%. Last block, I got 0.01985535 payment which is 0.634% of the last block. This isn’t factoring in any fees and also I think the total hash rate was closer to 55 ghs for the pool at the time plus the fact that my 24 hour hash rate has been below that a little bit for a while due to some minor machine issues


Yeah, just trying to see if I have something wrong :confused:


I will say this though. The pool hash rate lately has mostly been fluctuating between 50 to 55 ghs over the last while but the round share percentage shown on my account page has slowly been rising regardless.

Edit: I guess what I’m trying to say is it seems the system is doing as it’s intended. I did have some minor down time on one of my machines, so it just takes a while for the average to reach its spot again. How long was your machine down again?


It’s been running above 350MH/s for a week, 400MH/s for the last 36 hours

24hr average reported on my page is 400MH/s with a round share of 0.49%. It has been slowly creeping up since the pools total hashrate has dropped but it seems I’m still off by 0.1%?


shrug Maybe we’re just missing something. I’m going to re-read how the system works.



I been here since the beg but moving my hash around. Just pointed 800 m/h , lets see how this loyalty thing works out now.


The payout and fee is a value related to the shares I’ve contributed. The payout is not in question here, my round share is.


Another use mentioned in another thread that his samplings have shown closer to 60 ghs for the pool. That would more closely align with my reported round share.


In the last 12 hours it has come up to fully expected roundshare :man_shrugging:


I saw that mention as well, but for the life of me I can’t find where it was? I think it was a graph showing the hash for each block…Maybe it was offsite?


My pay was lower than reported expectations last 2 eth blocks, sais it should be .045 and .05 but got .037 and .038
Are the estimates not working right?


If i remember correctly, both those blocks were uncles. Prediction is based on whole block.


Ah, I did not even think to look at the block to see if it was full or an uncle… makes complete sense now!

Here blockie blockie :slightly_smiling_face:
