DASH No Longer Available
Invoicing System Issues Fixed!
All Bitcoin Pool Shares 30 Day Delay
DASH is No Longer Available…
We have decided to stop mining DASH and it has now been removed from the list. If you were mining DASH then your share has automatically been switched over to ETH starting today and you will begin earning ETH unless you change to another coin.
We will continue to support the DASH wallet and it’s our hope that in the future we can bring back DASH because we do believe in the future of this coin. But right now we suggest you move all coins out of your DASH wallet ASAP!
Invoicing System Issues – Fixed!
Over the past few days, our system has been extremely backed up verifying new transactions. This was due to an overloaded block explorer. We have fixed the issue and have made some upgrades to handle the increased volume so now everything is caught up and back to normal.
There were no transactions missed during this time they were just pending until the load was resolved.
Right now there are two issues happening at the same time that could cause some future delays. First, the Bitcoin network itself is overloaded and it can be very slow at times causing invoices to take a long time. Second, is our own growth rate and the size of our database to keep up with demand. We are basically at full capacity with a number of invoices we can generate per second, per minute, per day, etc..
We continue to make improvements and optimize our systems but we just wanted you to be aware that from time to time we could see increased periods of pending invoices or in some cases invoices that are generated without Bitcoin addresses at all. This means the server is too busy and you should wait a few minutes and try again.
During these times please be patient and know that we are aware of the issue and working to fix it. But with the current state of the network itself you just have to assume, there will be some delays (like rush hour traffic). Thanks for understanding!
All Bitcoin Pool Shares on 30 Day Delay…
As we mentioned in the previous update we are now moving all shares to begin paying after 30 days of purchase instead of 10 days. We have to do this because it takes the time to order these many machines get them installed and get them hashing to pay out.
The 30-day rule is now active for all new shares purchased on or after July 1st, and you will see this reflected in the countdown showing 1,030 days instead of 1,010 days. You will still earn for the same 1,000 days though.
