Miner Configuration

Payments

Payouts are currently scheduled once every hour with a minimum payout of 3 ARRR.

There is a limit of ~200 recipients that can be included in a single payout, so the pool payouts are monitored and the min payout adjusted accordingly to ensure a constant flow of payments.

If payments stop going out, do not worry! Funds are safu! Blocks can still be found and will be credited to your worker! Please check #piratepool in discord to see if it's already being worked on.

Pending blocks have not yet been scanned by the payment processor. After being scanned, blocks will need to receive both dPoW notarization and 10 confirmations before being actually paid out.

On your worker stats page:

  • Shares are equivalent to the amount of work at the difficulty level needed for your miners to submit work within 15s. For each block found, you are credited ARRR from the block reward proportional to the pool's total amount of shares since the last block found by the pool.
  • Pending* balance is the remaining estimated amount to be paid for blocks that were scanned but not yet eligible for payout either because of dPoW or min confirmations
  • Balance* includes blocks that were scanned and already paid out but you have not yet met the min payout.

*Please note these 2 stats will only update when the payment processor runs.

Payments that show up on the payments page initially are in the process of constructing the z transaction. Once the transaction actually broadcasts to the network, the blocks paid out will become hyperlinked to the explorer and then should arrive in your wallet in the next block or two.
