All About BTC, LTC, ETH mining as well as other alternative crypto currencies
After the announcement of the dual mining awards for the new Ghash.io Litecoin mining pool and then “changing the rules” on the go two times already, now it seems the LTC mining pool at the CEX.io operated service is experiencing some temporary issues. A series of blocks (11 in total) in the LTC pool are getting no confirmations, probably marked as orphans, however this is about 3 hours of mining time literally wasted for the people that expect to be getting double awards for their hashrate. We have already gave our recommendation to move your miners from the LTC pool as soon as they started adding extra rules some time after the initial announcement for double mining awards. So if you still haven’t done so, we are again going to recommend that you do this now, because with a few more rule changes and issues in the pool there is a chance that you might end up with less than the normal LTC mining profit for a week instead of the promised 2x (or up to 2x in the best case). It seems that CEX.io were not fully ready to launch their LTC mining pool and they were not ready to handle the overwhelming user interest to their 2x mining award and they are not handling it well even after changing the rules for the 2x award.
