should i be seeing something in my wallet, or in the block chain?

 

when i look at cryptoexplorer i see nothing recorded at any of the addresses mining this pool after 3/28/14.

 

anybody?

 

 

three hours later- still no coin in the wallet. wallet is up to date, with connections, latest version.

 

i put a small rig on a regular pool after the above post and i just cashed it out to check the wallet and connections. got here in 5 seconds.

 

in pursuing the shares data i find my address shown regularly.

 

this is not my first go at p2p mining, and it's gone well untill now

We've been in the process of contacting p2pool.org they are currently in need of an update. 

 

Please try using one of these three pools in the meantime.  What hashrate are you mining with around 2mhs?

*Snow Leopard's Hashery (Canada)http://mincoin.x1z.net

*Vircur Pool: http://mnc.vircurpool.com/

Thanks.

 

Sooo....

 

Were we just mining our own little fantasy chain over there?

 

I only have 1.2 mhs and it looked like I was mining well over 1 min per hour.

 

It was kind of fun finding all those blocks.

 

ohwell

Yeah, unfortunately, that's what happened.  Sucks, but it does happen when trying to get in touch with so many places.  Some of these sites & pools just seem to never check email or check up on their running wallet versions.

I mined MNC on p2pool.org for a couple days last week (or was it week before) and not withstanding connection issues you've brought up, I do NOT recommend using them or any other pool using p2pool software for MinCoin.

Don't get me wrong!   P2Pool is excellent software, P2Pool.org run nice stable pools as far as I can tell.  

The problem arises when you want to spend your mined MinCoins.    The p2pool software is "pay-as-you-go" -- as soon as you have a share of income from mining it is payed out.   This means you will receive dozens if not hundreds of little transactions, then when you want to spend your coins, several of this transactions must be combined to create your payment which generates an oversized transaction requiring extra transaction fees.

 

Other pool sites accumulate your income in order to make fewer larger payouts (thereby reducing transaction fees).

 

Shameless self plug:   You are more than welcome to try my new pool, nicely christened SnowLeopard's Hashery.
