Great news miners!
We decided that a locked account can only be locked for three hours if it get locked by an accident. Meaning if you bruteforce an account, it will be permanently locked until you contact support. But in any normal situation the account will be unlocked within 3hours.
We have also altered the fees! Fee is now 0.4% and will move towards 0.3%. As well as the transaction fee sent to the network when withdrawing ANC is set to 0.0001 ANC.
transaction fees by 100x! :)
http://anc.coinpool.in is the new webui url. stratum+tcp://anc.coinpool.in:3333 is the new stratum connect string.
Balance will be updated shortly.
We're soon finished with the new pool setup. Please check back on this site often now, when we're finished we will shut down the stratum server since we're having new URLs both for mining and web then. This frontend will stay up so people can withdraw their coins for a coulple of months in the future. However on a new URL which will be provided at this URL.
User accounts and workers will be moved to the next pool frontend, so no new registration is needed. The balance will not follow, but as said above, you're free to cash out from this frontend a couple of months into the future.
A reboot on a router at our ISP is required. The servers will be unreachable for about 5min really soon. Sorry for this problem.
We're ordering new hardware! This time we specs up with 6core Xeon 13Mb, 32Gb ram and 6x SAS disks. We're sorry to inform you that a little fee must be set then. But no more disconnects and problems! We have also hired more people to work on this.
You might have some disconnects sometimes against this pool. The reason for this is hardware. We didn't expect so many miners, and solved some bottlenecks by upgrading both cpu and ram, now the bottleneck is I/O. Mysql is currently writing over 100gb+ a day, this is the problem. We're working on getting the server on disks with more speed. We're also looking at possible ways to tweak mysql and other resources using a lot of I/O, but when it's mostly write activities it's less to do since you can't cache it.
People in the IRC support are living in GMT+1, and there is no guarantee that the people there is sitting at the computer just to wait for you to come screaming about help. If you got a problem and no one is answering, please wait (which includes you don't leave the IRC page) or send an mail in a mannered way. Then we will help you with your issues.
If you don't live in GMT+1 or any similar timezones like GMT+2 or GMT, it might be best to send an mail.
If you start screaming, we simply ignore you and you will be left out with your own screaming.
I hate screaming, and last night I woke up for the last time because of mega screaming in the channels because someone tried to deposit to an bitcoin address, while this is an anoncoin pool.
Note that this is a 0% fee pool and when we help, we do it because we want to help you, not because you paid us for it with fees. So if you want our help, it's not a good idea to start screaming.
We have been tiped by dyoungii (Thanks!) about upgrading from MMFCE-NG to MMCFE-MPOS. We have not yet looked into the upgrade issues but from what we have heard it shouldn't be any problem.
This will also include VARDIFF which will indirectly make the pool more reliable for some users that have experienced problems.
Many don't find the information since it's now at the bottom of the news page. Well, here it is :)

After the fork the balance updated a bit slow. The problem is now fixed. Your balance should show correct :)
Pool is now "upgraded" to 0.7.5.
Hotfix - downgrade 0.7.5
Windows binaries released: https://anoncoin.net/downloads/0.7.5.0/ Signed by Meeh.
Hoping to get binaries for lin/osx ready within next day or two.
This release still have the new protocol in place when we hit block 87777.
Abstract: It seems like an yet unknown patch between bitcoin 0.6.9 and bitcoin 0.8.5.5 didn't like the calculations Anoncoin used. Messages(blocks alerts, etc) between nodes got delayed, and some pools reported crashing. We have locked into a "last known good block".
More info is comming.
Goto %appdata% (type it in the dialog after pressing windows+r), then click into the Anoncoin folder. Delete all files except wallet.dat.
If you wish to contribute to find this yet unknown bug, please send in your debug.log as a PM or mail.
Please visit https://anoncoin.net/blog/?p=29 ASAP and read the blog notes and upgrade! :)
The Anoncoin wallet behind this pool is now upgraded to the last version, 0.8.5.4! And the first block is made with the new client. The mining will be much better after block 87777!! :) - Binary releases in testing now, release soon!
Pre Announce of Wallet upgrade!!
This is a mandatory upgrade for all wallets! Including exchanges, pools and your local install!

A attack is ongoing against a customer on the same switch as us on the data center. This is currently making coinpool a bit unstable. We're gonna move the route now to a core router at our ISP instead. This will be done within the next two hours. Sorry for the problems it casued you!
The hardware specs is now double of what it was before. We hope this will keep the pool stable! Sorry for the problems this has casued you.
It seems like the pool goes down because of lack of hardware, and a lot more miners than expected. The server will now reboot for upgrades!
Confirmations per block required to credit transactions is lowered from 120 to 70 on this pool! Payout earlier ;D
Anoncoin had a protocol switch!
This means the next few blocks are going to be really unstable in difficulty, but it should be stable after some blocks. This because of it was around 500Mh/s in the network at the protocol switch. Which made the diff bounce up, then down again, and now up, next is down, and you get the point. After a while the difficulty will be stable.
The first action is done, Coinpool is now on a new hypervisor! :D
- A quick reboot will happen once more next week at some time. Estimated downtime is 5min.
The virtual machine coinpool is running on is changing hypervisor for better uptime and quality of service. This will happen today at some time, then again a few days later. The virtual machine won't be down longer than it takes to reboot the system. Happy mining!
coinpool.in is thinking about PPS reward, after the protocol switch at 77,777 when the difficulty will be stable :)
