I’ve just made the move from bitcoinpool.com to BTC Guild.
My brand new mining machine (which I am now in doubt over whether will pay for itself), has been generating near a Gigahash/sec for a few days. I have simply not seen this on the bitcoinpool’s status, I’ve checked a few times when the machine has been running for hours on end.
Within 30 minutes of being connected to BTC Guild I have an accurate and nice reading of 1.1GH/s
Bitcoinpool.com also haven’t paid me for the shares I did. I don’t know why and they don’t make it clear either. This does not make me happy. My rate also seemed to be way off anything calculated here: http://bitminer.info/. Perhaps that site is over optimistic, but I was starting to wonder.
Anyway, the two things together made me leave, I will see how it goes over at BTC Guild. The hash rate being what it I’d expect it to be is encouraging already.
I did get the Bitcoins in the end from bitcoinpool.com. It’s just that things were poorly explained and moved very slowly. I’m much happier at BTC Guild, where I still work in the pool. It’s clear and it works well.
