See below a brief information about the result you can get in the eXeR mining, and also general information on hash rate and accepted shares and how it works
As a continuance of the eXeR mining go-live on the 17th of Dec 2017, have performed corrections and developed new versions of the mining program. Several new tests have been done on the miner, with the purpose to optimize the miner and achieve better performance for each computer. You have probably seen some red text on your miner software, a large amount, less amount or no number of accepted shares coming in, below you find some explanations to this.
Hash rate changes constantly to begin with and the changes depends on your computer and what it is used for. If you for example use it to work with, if updates are made on it (some automatic) etc, the hash rate will decrease temporarily.
Red text will occur when we perform program changes in the eXeR mining pool. When program changes are made the system has to be taken offline to be able to correct and upload a new version. In such cases your computer has lost connection to the eXeR mining pool and when it will go online again, it should continue the mining, but on the down time it will show red because no mining is being performed during the time the system is being upgraded.
Regarding accepted shares, the result shown on the mining is your own accepted shares, not on the poolâ€™s total accumulated shares. The accepted shares can be viewed in the mining display, but not on the dashboard. Reason for this is that accepted shares can be considered a â€˜lotteryâ€™ rather than a performance. Whether you get accepted shares or not are more a luck factor than a qualification, so to make it fair for all the revenue you receive depends on the hash rate delivered to the pool. The system is based on the requirement of building a network of miners to earn any larger amounts, and all miners can mine for free. If you mine only with your own computer it will not bring you a fortune, which is displayed on the table example in the eXeR presentation. You can find other ways to mine that can bring you more earnings on your own computer alone, but the unique about eXeR mining is that it brings larger incomes with a large network than you could ever get mining only with your own computer in another system.
If you have a laptop with a processor with 1 (one) thread core only, it should not be used to mine due to heat reasons. The average desktop CPU can safely mine with 2-3 threads. With all threads used, a modern CPUs can achieve 100-200 hashes or more. If you have around 40 hashes or below there it is a risk it cost you more in power than you earn. In such case you need to make some updates to your computer to increase the hashes or replace it with another one. On the other hand, if you have a large network mining as well the cost of the power is coming back through the network, but again it is better to upgrade or replace it. When we say replace it, we are talking about a standard computer, you do not need a very expensive gaming computer to be able to mine in eXeR mining. If you have any doubts or questions of the setup of eXeR mining, then contact us. Further we strongly recommend that you listen to one of the presentations since here we clearly point out the importance of the network in regards to eXeR mining.
A Hash is the mathematical problem the minerâ€™s computer needs to solve. The Hash Rate is the rate at which these problems are being solved. The more miners that join the eXeR mining pool, the higher the total network Hash Rate is. The Hash Rate can also refer to your minerâ€™s performance. Minersâ€™ performance is measured in H/s (Hash per second) MH/s (Mega Hash per second), GH/s (Giga Hash per second), TH/s (Terra Hash per second) and even PH/s (Peta Hash per second). Most crypto coin mining is all about solving mathematical problems, which in turn act as raffle tickets.
Each problem solved is called a 'proof of work' result, and counts as one raffle ticket. Every time a predetermined quantity of proof-of-work results are generated, the system draws a raffle number, and one proof-of-work result is awarded a block of new crypto coins. Every miner who contributed to solving that particular block will get a proportionate share of the rewards. Without accepted shares a miner gets nothing.
It's all about contributing with your computer power to the eXeR mining group. Proof-of-work problems are very difficult to solve, results are best achieved when users combine their computers into a pool like we do in the eXeR mining pool, with each person's computer contributing a share of their computers effort. As your personal machine achieves its proof-of-work results, it submits its results to the group. The faster your computer can solve proof-of-work problems, the more results you can submit to the group every minute. If your machine submits its results before the new coin block is found, it is called an 'accepted share'. When the group of people is rewarded with newly minted coins, it distributes those earnings across people, proportionately by their accepted shares. If your computer successfully performs work, but submits it too late for that block, it is called a 'rejected share' of work. You will get no credit for that work, and it cannot be banked towards future coin discoveries. Rejected shares are inevitable, regardless of how powerful your mining computer is. The desired goal is to minimize rejected shares and maximize accepted shares. One part of the secret of being a successful miner is that you need a machine that can submit many proof-of-work shares before each new coin is found.
