No sha256d for 4,230 blocks?

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Check out the hourly/daily charts here: http://xaya-gaming.net/

There is a gap because no sha256d blocks were being mined. Looking closer I see it was in between
 

Date: 2019-04-26 07:50:31 GMT

Block: 787082
Date: 2019-04-28 09:11:30 GMT

Block: 791311

So for about 49 hours 20 minutes no one was mining sha256d?

I spot checked a bunch of blocks using the official explorer from that period and they were all NeoScrypt, so do not think the problem is on my end.

No one else cares about this? It seems like a quite notable event.

Indeed it is.  I do not know the reason for this particular event, but we discussed in the team internally and will try to find more miners interested in SHA256-d merged mining.  Especially from my point of view, that is a much higher priority than working on the GPU mining aspects.

It seems f2pool had some technical stuff they were doing.

One advantage of the dual algo is blocks continue to come in :D

As @domobsaid we are working on getting more pools to merge mine.

Just a question ...
Xaya can only be merged mined with bitcoin right? Or can I point my little USB miner with some GH/s to mine single blocks? I don´t know much about merged mining but I don´t think this will work or am I´m wrong? 😅

regards

yeh you can but you will be unlikely to get any blocks unless you have a lot of USBs :D

you can merge mine with pretty much all sha256 coins afaik.

for example - namecoin once had more Hash power mining than bitcoin itself, because most mining bitcoin and bitcoin cash and others were also mining namecoin.
