Ethereum and Ethereum Classic pools down until further notice

Oliver 1 week ago • updated 4 days ago 6

Due to a critical bug in Parity, our Ethereum and Ethereum Classic pools will be down until further notice as it would be irresponsible to expose miners to this any longer.

https://github.com/paritytech/parity-ethereum/issues/9278

So what happens to our earned shares?  I'm still sitting on ~0.2 ETH that should have been sent to my wallet but wasn't for a number of months now.  I realize that's not a lot of $$ currently, but it was quite a bit more just a few months ago and could easily be worth more again in the future.

I started mining on Coinfoundry because it appeared to be a well organized site with good pools, but I may have to rethink that and move my XMR miners to a different pool as well.

Really don't like losing shares that were legitimately earned on your pool.

Ablixeron: I fully understand your frustration. But would it be responsible to let miners work against a pool that distributes work from node that fails to inform the pool about new blocks? If you and anyone else provides his wallet address in this thread I will verify all claims and distribute the pending balances asap.

I understand there are issues with parity, but the fact about unpaid earned shares remains.  Would certainly appreciate anything you can do to help.

My ETH wallet is:

0xbF9c6349111298f42b767bD603826E6c2acBD9CB

For reference, my XMR wallet is:

I've no issue with your XMR pool, it is fair and appears to be working well.

Thank you.

Below is the current state of that wallet - directly from the pool database. As you can see the last payment was sent on 06-21 after which the balance was reset. That someone is sitting on an unpaid balance of 0.2 ETH when the pool has a payment limit of 0.1 ETH shouldn't ever happen and hasn't ever happen throughout the lifetime of the pool. Could it be possible that your memory in this regard is wrong or applies to a different pool?

Thank you for looking into this.  The mining was definitely on this pool, and I agree the last payment to the wallet happened on 6/21.

The issue is I had earned over 230T shares after that point in time which remain unpaid.  Honestly, with the closure of your ETH mining pool (for now at least) it doesn't seem likely that I will be compensated for this.  It does, however, remain a fact that I mined 24/7 on this pool for weeks, earning those ~230T shares which now remain unpaid and in limbo.  Admittedly I am only a very small miner with just 3 1070 cards, but this experience does lead me to look at other pools going forward.

P.S.  Sorry if I was unclear, I didn't mean to say I had .2 ETH earned and unpaid.  I meant that I had > 230T shares earned that remained unpaid.  Obviously, that doesn't happen until the pool mines a block, which is why I said above its unlikely I'll ever see those shares turned into ETH.

The ETH and ETC pools will return for sure. But since I realize that the current situation is far from ideal for the miners I will try to come up with a fair solution for an interim compensation. Could you please contact me via contact@coinfoundry.org?
