    Can someone please tell me if I'll join the pool with only 1.20Gh/s hashrate (R9 380) about how much DCR/Day should I expect to get?

    With 1.5GH/s i got 4-5 yesterday when net hash was 3+TH/s, so you can expect similar amounts or a little more as hashrate is down now.

    I'm mining in a pool at 1 GH/s and I get roughly 1 DCR a day..

    You can't get 4-5 DCR when mining solo. It's all or nothing.

    Yes I believe when you mine solo you can only get a full block for yourself, however I think mining in a pool gives you less, but it is steady.. I think I'll stick to a pool with my one GPU. Problem is if you keep solo mining, the difficulty will go up making it harder I believe to solve a block, so you might be solo mining for two weeks and not finding anything. Pool gives me about 1 DCR a day at least.. At this point I'll take all I can get

    Thanks for the replies. I don't know what is better to switch to pool mining or to give up mining at all since I also have some electricity cost.

    Another question is which pool is better for me.

    Do we know if someone with low hashrate was lucky to solve a block mining solo?

    I hope they'll fix this soon.

    Did you notice the title of this thread? ;) There is the answer :p
    Or the other pools listed on the suprnova DCR page.

    I saw a best share 282k pop up in one of the windows today with a 2GH/s card. That was a block since difficulty was at 221k. Unfortunately it was while mining in a pool so I got less than 0.1 DCR. So yes, you can find blocks when solo mining. It will just take a while since you have only a tiny fraction of the network hash.

    Edit: Let's see how much the difficulty will decrease in two blocks from now (864).

    Well that's why I asked I saw other available pools on Suprnova page and I thought it's just like telling me that's not a pool for you, better try your luck somewhere else. Anyway. :)

    Most pools show "Est. Next Difficulty 141,198.63278715 (Change in 1 Blocks)". Is this a bug?

    Block 863 now still at 221k. Should adjust in next block I think. But certainly not to 141k.

    It's a fair gesture by suprnova since they have too much percentage of the network all the time.

    The long awaited difficulty adjustment happened just a moment ago in block 864. It is 164k now and blocks will start rainin.

    Understood, but maybe all the pools can take a break for a few days and let us mine a solo. :p

    @ocminer: I am getting a lot of "pool not providing work fast enough" at diff 4 port now. ST is 1. I think ST was 6 for some time earlier today and it worked much better without the aforementioned message..

    It should be better. You can estimate the time to find a block with:

    Code:
    time (seconds) = (difficulty * 2^32) / hashrate
    Where 2^32 is the number of zeroed bits in a difficulty 1 block. Using getmininginfo, we find the nethash is 2,027,627,505,088 H/s or 2 TH/s. The current difficulty is 163557.62187443.

    Code:
    time = (163557.62187443 * 2^32) / 2,027,627,505,088 H/s = 346.451522876 s or 5.77 minutes
    With the current network estimate, we see that the difficulty function is working correctly to provide the target block time of 5 minutes.

    Noticing a pretty large drop in Pool hash rate. Folks jumping off due to difficulty decrease maybe? I'm not not very familiar with pool mining.

    Is the 1% pool fee deducted from the balance, since the amount in earnings tab is about 1% higher, than the account balance?
