Resolution for the high ETH transaction fees mined on 2021-10-18

[Edit]

Among the Ethereum blocks mined by f2pool on 2021-10-18, there were 4 blocks with very high transaction fees that were set aside from the daily revenue by our automatic risk management system.

We are happy to inform you that we have identified those transactions as normal. After the recalculations, we will credit the high fees to the users’ balance (no later than 12:00 UTC on 2021-10-19) and send it together with the revenue mined on 2021-10-19.

Adjusting the Transaction fees of ETH payouts

[Edit]

The London Hardfork has implemented a fundamental change in Ethereum’s new fee structure. Due to these changes, the costs of sending on-chain payouts have increased significantly. We have thus decided to adjust the transaction fees of ETH mining revenue payouts starting August 18, 2021 0:00 UTC. The fee per transaction will be deducted before daily payments and will be recorded on your revenue page.

Upcoming Ethereum’s London hardfork

[Edit]

The Ethereum network will perform an upgrade on block height 12,965,000, which is estimated to happen at about 12:00, August 5, 2021, UTC. We’ve upgraded our node and set up Flashbots MEV, as Ethereum miners with F2Pool you do not need to do anything specifically for the upgrade.

After the upgrade, the fixed block reward will remain the same, however, the gas fee structure will be adjusted to “BaseFee + Tips”. The BaseFee in each block will be burned and the Tips will still be a part of the miner’s income. Due to the fees burned, there will be possible decreases in fees. As fees are a result of network activity, this is usually hard to estimate since it’s subject to the actual gas fees mined.

The London upgrade will also push back the difficulty bomb to December 2021. Before the bomb is triggered, you may continue taking part in Ethereum mining.

Ethereum DAG file size will reach 4 GB on December 25

[Edit]

The Ethereum DAG file size is estimated to reach 4 GB on December 25, 2020 at 2:00 UTC. After that, mining Ethereum with 4GB GPUs or ASICs will be affected. Miners can refer to the following ways to deal with the change:

1. Use software like Bminer v16.4, lolMiner or Teamredminer. Both of these support continued mining of ETH with 4 GB memory devices but with some loss of hashrate, since every time the epoch file grows in a 4 - 5 day cycle, the hashrate will decrease slightly.

2. Modify your GPU’s onboard memory units. Find a reliable service provider to change the miner’s memory units to a higher capacity to continue mining ETH.

3. Switch to other networks with your current, unmodified hardware. 4 GB GPUs will continue work on mining other coins such as BEAM, RVN, SERO, and ETC. You may refer to the f2pool Popular Miners page to see revenue information on different networks.

The ETC (Ethereum Classic) network will perform the Thanos hard fork at block 11,700,000, which will be mined on about November 29, 2020. The mining algorithm of ETC will change from Ethash to Etchash, which means Ethash ASICs and rented Ethash hashpower from NiceHash will not be able to process the new algorithm and mine ETC. Meanwhile, the ETC network’s DAG file will decrease in size. With this decrease, 3GB and 4GB GPUs will be able to continue mining ETC.

After the hard fork, you will need to update your configuration and restart your mining machines.

BCHA distribution completed

[Edit]

In our earlier announcement, “Our handling of the BCH hard fork upgrade”, we notified miners that BCHA (Bitcoin Cash ABC) would be distributed at a ratio of 1:1 based on BCH balances on November 15, 2020 at 12:00 UTC.

On November 26, 2020, we converted BCHA to BCH based on the price at 4:00 UTC and distributed it to miners. This BCH will show up on your revenue records with the label “Candy Distribution.” When your BCH balance reaches the minimum threshold, it will be paid out along with your BCH mining revenue.

Explanation regarding hashrate display issue

[Edit]

Since 18:00 UTC on November 15, some users have been experiencing an issue with the hashrate information displayed on the f2pool website and app due to abnormal synchronization of data with the cloud server. We are in the process of fixing bugs related to displaying the worker list and hashrate data. The correct historical hashrate chart will be restored no later than 04:00 UTC on November 17.

This issue only impacts the display of the data. Mining and payouts continue to operate normally and have not been affected by this bug. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this display issue, but please be assured our team is working on deploying a fix.

If you have any questions, please contact our support team at support@f2pool.com or open a support ticket.

Our handling of the BCH hard fork upgrade

[Edit]

BCH (Bitcoin Cash) will undergo a network upgrade on November 15, 2020 at about 12:00 UTC. The upgrade may result in two different chains and additional tokens due to the differences of opinion between two main BCH clients, Bitcoin Cash ABC (BCHA) and Bitcoin Cash Node (BCHN).

We will take the following steps to ensure the security of our users’ assets:

1. When the upgrade completes, our BCH pool will be transitioned to a BCHN pool.

2. Starting from 23:40 UTC on November 14, 2020, BCH mining as part of the BTC Profit-Switching (SHA256d) pool will be suspended. BSV and BTC mining will remain available.

3. Due to the lack of transaction replay protection and the risk of on-chain transactions during the upgrade, BCH payouts will be paused from November 15 on.

4. If the upgrade results in additional tokens, we will credit them at a ratio of 1:1 based on BCH balances on November 15, 2020 at 12:00 UTC.

5. When the upgrade completes and the chains stabilize, we will release further announcements about when we will resume payouts and BCH mining in the BTC Profit-Switching (SHA256d) pool, our support for BCHA mining, the distribution of new tokens, etc.

4G GPU cards to stop being supported for mining ETH on Windows

[Edit]

As the size of the Ethereum blockchain continues to increase, ETH mining requires GPU cards with more memory to store DAG files. Starting from about October 17, 2020 UTC, it will no longer be possible to mine ETH with 4G GPU cards on Windows machines.

In order to continue mining with 4G GPU cards, please try one of the solutions below.

1. Switch to Linux or a dedicated mining operating system. ETH can be mined with 4G GPU cards using these operating systems until the end of December 2020.

2. Increase memory size to 8GB to avoid future problems caused by the increasing size of the DAG file.

3. Start mining other coins, such as BEAM, RVN, SERO, etc. You can check the daily revenue of these coins here before making a decision.

Optimization for checking mining revenue

[Edit]

We have made an optimization for checking mining revenue. “24 Hours Revenue” has been replaced with “Yesterday’s Revenue” to make the process more convenient.

In f2pool’s previous revenue data, “24 Hours Revenue” was defined as your revenue from 24 hours previous up to the time you checked the data. Our users often mistook it for the previous day’s revenue.

After collecting opinions from miners, we removed “24 Hours Revenue” from our revenue data and replaced it with “Yesterday’s Revenue” to increase the accuracy and effectiveness of the data. Now, “Yesterday’s Revenue” stands for the previous day’s revenue, on a settlement day (payouts circle) basis.

f2pool Supports PPS+ Payment Method for ETH Wallet Address Mining

[Edit]

From 2020-08-01, f2pool will support the PPS+ payment method for ETH wallet address mining. Miners who use a wallet address to mine ETH will now also get a share of the mining fee, as a bonus.

PPS+ is a combination of two models, PPS and PPLNS. The block reward is settled according to PPS, and the transaction fee is settled according to the PPLNS model. It means that with PPS+, the miner obtains additional income from a portion of the transaction fee based on PPLNS.

For coins that have growing transaction fees, adopting the PPS+ method helps miners increase their revenue.

Solutions to Issues of Mining ETH On 4G GPU Cards

[Edit]

Some 4 GB GPU mining cards have encountered issues, including lower than expected hashrate, errors in the mining software and disconnections while mining ETH.

As the ETH Epoch continues to increase, ETH mining requires GPU cards with a larger memory space to store DAG files. Claymore’s latest version is no longer able to support ETH mining on 4 GB GPU cards anymore. This has caused some miners using Claymore and 4 GB GPU cards to have issues mining ETH.

In response to this problem, many mining software providers have provided solutions:
