How can I check the ticket price on mainnet?
The majority of the code is RPC calls to dcrwallet so the requirements are pretty low no matter the volume.
The SBits field shows the price for a ticket:
Can I mining at pool
With web wallet
It will not be possible to stake mine via the pool using only the web wallet at initial launch because it lacks the ability to get the necessary information requested by the stake pool. Obviously it should eventually support it.
Is the Testate Stake Pool working?... Because I have around 30 tickets on there, most purchased when this thread launched. None of which has staked.
@davecgh @jolan is there any ETA for the PoS pool ? Block 4096 is coming closer... ^^
It's been verified working as of this morning but It was definitely broken for a bit due to deployment issues. We're implementing statistics reporting so it's easier for the pool operator/users to know that the pool is working correctly:
We're finishing up the last of the features (see above) and then will get it rolled out ASAP.
May i have some testnet coins?thx

@davecgh @jolan Any updates on the stake pool for the mainnet ? Should we start to solo stake or will the pool be ready at block 4096 ?
I gave up waiting and started solo staking. I needed to give myself enough time to buy tickets since it seems to only be able to buy one ticket per block assuming I'm not doing something horribly wrong to cause that.
I hope that the stake pool for mainnet will be up and running soon. I am sure that some of the POW miners are losing their patience in having their subsidy reduced by missed votes, from time to time.
I believe this is coming today. The reason for the delay is due to a combination of code optimisation, infrastructure, and testing. These are all factors that make software-related dates complex. They are always to be taken as ETAs but as progress continues the ETAs become smaller and smaller. A frustration of the development process, but critically necessary and inherent.
.. Testnet stake pool seems totally dead and broken for me. Pages don't work, no actual completed Votes. Maybe this requires more testing?
Very nice! I belive there are quite a few people like me who aren't enough tech savvy to do the solo staking.
Really looking forward to this!
A lot of these missed votes seem to be due to some connectivity or configuration issue on part of a few particular pools, rather than people not having their voting wallets online and ready to vote.
This issue is discussed in another thread in this subforum and you've commented in it already
I agree with @jyap. This is not ready for mainnet. Both tickets & stats page show this.
Yes there have been a lot of issues. Sorry for the lack of updates but there's been daily progress behind the scenes to make it much more stable.
Got a proof-of-concept working and released
Added support for allowing users to control their votes or defer decision making to the pool
Realized due to a deployment issue that the pool was not operating properly
We added stats so the pool operator/users could see the pool's history/status
Stats were too slow to be useful through WAN links with a large wallet
Stats speed was improved greatly
Lots of bug fixes and stability/reliability/debugging ability improvements in between the various steps above
When checking the faster stats code we found/fixed a bug that caused synchronized pool wallets to have different statistics
More instrumentation added for verifying wallets are in sync and restoring/syncing from a live wallet/SQL
The last 2 items were just addressed late last night. We're hoping today's the day for a stable pool that clearly reports its status.
