New to mining!

I've been lurking for quite some time, saw that the antminer s9i's were a good price (at least in my opinion). Bought one about a week ago and it was delivered this morning. Super easy to set up and already going to work!
I guess this is more of an "i'm super excited to finally be mining" post.
Looking forward to more mining in the future!

November BTC Fork - The Facts

Update 2: THE NOVEMBER SEGWIT2X HARDFORK HAS NOW BEEN CANCELLED! :D
Update: Thank you for your appreciation on this article. I decided to publish it on Medium.  
You can find the article on this link.
 
Existing Article:
With less than a dozen days left before the SegWit2X fork, I thought I'd start gathering some facts before I start forming personal opinions and speculative conclusions. I refer to the SegWit1X chain as 1X and the SegWit2X chain as 2X for simplicity, and I have looked for very simple facts and safe assumptions. Here are the dots that I gathered:  
 
• Fork at Block 494,784. Approximate time = 16th of November - see Reference 6 for exact time.  
 
The New York Agreement: The NYA involved parties representing about 83% of the then hashing power who all agreed to both hardforks - one for SegWit and another for an increased block size of 2MB (2X) within 6 months of the former. Further details in reference 1.  
 
• It is safe to assume that miners will only mine the most profitable chain (possibly several chains in differing proportions).  
• If whales pump a single chain it will gain more value. If this happens, miners will be more inclined to mine that particular chain only. This will result in the other chain(s)potentially losing overall mining attractiveness.  
 
1X will continue to have a 1MB block and SegWit;  
2X will have a 2MB block and SegWit;  
Bitcoin Cash (Just for info right now) currently has an 8 MB block with NO SegWit;  
 
Current Price Status (Futures) on BitFinex: 2X/BTC = 0.17; 1X/BTC = 0.83  
 
Current Mining Status: 2X = Around 85% of blocks are signalling for 2X.  
It seems only a few mining pools including Slush Pool, F2Pool and Kano CKPool are not signalling Segwit2X. All Antpool (Jihan Wu) owned pools are signalling for Segwit2X and will likely continue to do so up to the fork. It is not clear if any other pools from the Segwit2X signalling group will change their minds in the meantime.  
 
Lower mining power chain: Likely to be 1X. Fees likely to be extremely high as not many miners. Difficulty adjustment could take a few weeks, if not months. Until then it will be very difficult to transfer funds. [It may be better to keep BTC on an exchange before fork, to ease liquidity cost/time if you want to sell either of the coins immediately]  
 
Double-spending: Miners (from 2X) will have an ability and incentive to double-spend on the minority chain (lower mining power chain). If you have huge mining power, you can allocate some of it to just double-spend on the minority chain. Some people will possibly lose confidence in the minority chain as a result.  
 
Replay-Protection: Neither 1X nor 2X currently have replay protection.  
 
Exchanges:
  1. Bitfinex: original chain is “BTC”, SegWit2x chain is “B2X”  
  2. BitMEX: Original chain is BTC  
  3. Bitstamp: Unknown  
  4. GDAX & Coinbase: hash power and market cap decides which chain is “BTC”  
  5. Kraken: Unknown  
  6. HitBTC: original chain is “BTC”, SegWit2x chain is “B2X”  
  7. CoinsBank: Original chain is BTC  
  8. CEX.IO: original chain is “BTC”, SegWit2x chain is “B2X”  
  9. Gemini: hash power decides which chain is “BTC”  
  10. Coinfloor: Unknown  
  11. BTCC (Updated on Twitter): BTCC will consider which of 1MB and 2MB to name as #bitcoin based on market feedback and adoption.  
Further details in reference 4.  
 
The OPINIONs section
Vinny Lingham's opinion: 2X will outcompete 1X.  
 
Enter Bitcoin Cash: A review by Ryan X. Charles who has incorporated some of Vinny Lingham's quotes, states the following:  
 
a. BCH is a fork of BTC with same PoW, but with improved Difficulty Adjustment Algorithm (DAA). BCH cannot die, but 1X and 2X could both die. If whales shift most of their holdings to BCH (or another coin), that would incentivise the miners to mine BCH (or another coin) instead of 1X and 2X. Both 1X and 2X would lose their mining power; however Core would release an emergency update to software adding DAA like BCH (or another coin). Thus, 1X would survive, and 2X (which might not get DAA) would die.  
 
b. If 2X continues to be the dominantly mined chain, 1X will be forced to launch an emergency update to their PoW with DAA. There could be fighting between the two chains, and as a result a struggle to become dominant potentially causing altcoins to flourish.  
 
My observations
BCH is upgrading their EDA (Emergency Difficulty Adjuster) on Nov 13. See website. This will lead to reduced volatility in BCH - likely making it more attractive to more long-term miners.  
 
Mining profitability: It is currently almost equally profitable to mine either BTC or BCH.  
 
• What to keep and eye on before the fork to judge yourself where the fate of BTC is heading.  
  1. Mining signalling distribution
  2. DAA: 1X or 2X software updates to implement Difficulty Adjustment Algorithms
  3. Futures price before fork
  4. Significant whale movement

Is KanoPool another Jihan pool?

Is KanoPool another Jihan pool? Because every time i ask him what chain will follow if segwit2x failed the operator of this pool refuse to answer, delete my post and finally says that he will follow the majority of hashpower. You can see the answer here.

معرفی برترین استخر های ماینینگ بیتکوین در سال ۲۰۱۹

استخر ماینینگ بیت کوین چیست؟
ماینرهای بیت کوین گروهی از ماینرها می‌باشند که در صدد ایجاد بلاک به منظور کسب سود یا جایزه هستند. جایزه مورد نظر به طور برابر و بر اساس توان هش ماینینگ در اختیار گذاشته شده، بین ماینرها تقسیم می‌شود. استخر بیت کوین روشی برای استفاده از منابع ماینرها برای استخراج و به اشتراک گذاری توان هشینگ آنها می‌باشد. گواه اثبات کار معتبر باید طوری ارائه شود که جایزه کسب کند. اوایل، تولید یک بلاک برای ماینرهای کم‌سرعت تر سال ها طول می‌کشید تا اینکه استخر ماینینگ بیت کوین به وجود آمد. در استخر ماینینگ، ماینرها بخشی از جایزه بلاک را دریافت خواهند کرد و بلاک ها سریعتر تولید خواهند شد. استخرهای ماینینگ بیت کوین مختلفی وجود دارد و انتخاب محبوب ترین استخر کاملا وسوسه کننده است. توصیه می‌شود که استخرهای کوچکتر بیت کوین را انتخاب کنید تا از تراکم مضر توان هشینگ اجتناب شود.
استخرهای بیت کوین در سراسر جهان
کشور چین در زمینه دارا بودن بیشترین تعداد استخرهای بیت کوین حرف اول را می‌زند. استخرهای بیت کوین براساس توان هش تحت کنترل استخر رتبه بندی می‌شوند. در ادامه مقاله، بر اساس اطلاعات بلاک چین، بزرگترین استخرهای ماینینگ بیت کوین همراه با توان هش آنها ارائه می‌شود. این فهرست بر اساس بزرگترین تا کوچکترین استخر می‌باشد.
AntPool 25.2% BTC.TOP 11.2% BTC.com 10.2% Bixin 8.1% BTCC Pool 7.3% F2Pool 5.4% ViaBTC 5% BW.COM 5% BitClub Network 4.8% Bitcoin.com 3% SlushPool 2.6% Unknown 2.3% GBMiners 2% BitFury 1.9% CANOE 1.2% 1Hash 1.1% Telco 214 1.1% Eligius 1% BATPOOL 0.9% Waterhole 0.6% ConnectBTC 0.6% Bitcoin India 0.2% Solo CKPool 0.2% BitcoinRussia 0.2%
نکات مهم قبل از شروع ماینینگ
استخرهای ماینینگ متفاوتی برای ارزهای دیجیتال مختلف وجود دارند. با افزایش اندازه استخر، میزان پرداخت سود کاهش می‌یابد زیرا این پرداخت ها باید بین ماینرهای بسیار زیادی تقسیم شود. انواع مختلفی جایزه وجود دارد که قبل از شروع ماینینگ باید از آنها مطلع باشید. پرداخت به ازای سهم یا PPS: مقدار پرداخت سود برای هر کاربر ثابت است و پس از ثبت سهم، به آنها پرداخت می‌شود. نسبی: کاربران به نسبت مقدار سهمی که در اختیار می‌گذارند جایزه دریافت می‌کنند. امتیاز محور: این روش به سهم های جدید نسبت به سهم های قدیمی برتری می‌دهد و کاربران بر اساس زمان ثبت سهم خود جایزه دریافت می‌کنند. پرداخت به ازای N سهم اخیر یا PPLNS: این روش مشابه با روش نسبی است اما تفاوت آن در این است که هر سهم در چندین دوره جایزه دریافت می‌کند. پرداخت کامل به ازای سهم یا FPPS: این روش مشابه با روش PPS است اما در این موضوع متفاوت است که کارمزد تراکنش بین ماینرهای واجد شرایط جایزه تقسیم می‌شود. کارمزد تراکنش بر اساس توان هش ماینرها توزیع می‌شود. پرداخت حداکثری اشتراکی به ازای سهم یا SMPPS: مشابه روش PPS است اما کمتر از سود کسب شده توسط استخر پرداخت انجام می‌دهد. استخرهای ماینینگ با ماینینگ ابری فرق دارند. استخرهای ماینینگ شامل گروهی از ماینرها هستند که جایزه ها را بر اساس سهم خود به اشتراک می‌گذارند اما ماینینگ ابری شامل ارائه دهنده سرویسی است که در ازای ماینینگ باید پول پرداخت کنید اما در عوض جایزه دریافت می‌کنید.
۱- انت پول AntPool
انت پول بزرگترین استخر بیت کوین از لحاظ توان هش در کشور چین است. این استخر توسط بیت مین بزرگترین تولید کننده سخت افزارهای بیت کوین اداره می‌شود. می‌توانید در استخر انت پول بدون پرداخت هزینه یک حساب کاربری بسازید اما برای استخراج به سخت افزار ماینینگ بیت کوین و هم چنین نرم افزار ماینینگ نیاز دارید که می‌توان آن را دانلود کرد. رابط کاربری آن بسیار کاربر پسند است. سود کسب شده توسط شما بر روی داشبورد برنامه قابل مشاهده است و می توانید میزان هش ریت را هر زمانی که می خواهید و در هر دقیقه و هر ساعت نظارت کنید. پرداخت سود و کارمزدها ایجاد حساب کاربری در انت پول رایگان است. می‌توانید استخراج انفرادی همتا به همتا را به سه روش انتخاب کنید. روش اول سخت افزار خودتان و کارمزد یک درصد، روش دوم PPLNS با کارمزد صفر درصد و روش سوم PPS با کارمزد ۲.۵ درصد می باشند. کارمزد تراکنش ها مشخص نیست و انت پول آن را اعلام نکرده است. اخیرا کارمزد تراکنش بیت کوین افزایش یافته است و انت پول یک الی دو بیت کوین به ازای هر بلاک را نزد خود نگه می‌دارد و با ماینرها به اشتراک گذاشته نمی‌شود. انت پول محدودیت پرداخت ندارد و موجودی های بیش از ۰.۰۰۱ بیت کوین را هر روز ساعت ۱۰ صبح پرداخت می‌کند. هر بلاک بیت کوین توسط انت پول با ۱۲.۵ بیت کوین جایزه داده می‌شود. امنیت انت پول دارای تایید هویت دو مرحله ای، مسدود سازی کیف پول و هشدار از طریق ایمیل با عنوان اقدامات امنیتی است. اپراتورهای این استخر، انجمن های خود را اداره می‌کنند که شامل ثبت ساده و آسان وظایف اصلی ماینرها در استخر می‌باشد. مزایا انت پول بزرگترین و محبوب ترین استخر بیت کوین با رابط کاربری روان و مناسب برای ماینرهای تازه کار است. می‌توانید بین روش های ماینینگ PPLNS و PPS نیز یک روش را برای ماینینگ انتخاب کنید. اگر بیشتر در این استخر جستجو کنید با گزینه های جالب بسیار زیادی مواجه می‌شوید. پرداخت سود و تسویه ها بسیار خوب است. انت پول دارای اقدامات امنیتی بسیار مناسبی است. معایب به دلیل آنکه انت پول استخر بزرگی است، پرداخت سود کاهش می‌یابد. کارمزد تراکنش ها نیز توسط انت پول مشخص نشده است.

The November BTC Fork and Bitcoin Cash - The Facts

Update: Thank you for your appreciation on this article. I decided to publish it on Medium.  
You can find the article on this link.
 
Existing Article:
With less than a dozen days left before the SegWit2X fork, I have started gathering facts before I start forming personal opinions and speculative conclusions. I refer to the SegWit1X chain as 1X and the SegWit2X chain as 2X for simplicity, and I have looked for very simple facts and safe assumptions. Here are the dots that I gathered:  
 
• Fork at Block 494,784. Approximate date = 16th of November.  
 
The New York Agreement: The NYA involved parties representing about 83% of the then hashing power who all agreed to both hardforks - one for SegWit and another for an increased block size of 2MB (2X) within 6 months of the former. Further details in reference 1.  
 
• It is safe to assume that miners will only mine the most profitable chain (possibly several chains in differing proportions).  
• If whales pump a single chain it will gain more value. If this happens, miners will be more inclined to mine that particular chain only. This will result in the other chain(s)potentially losing overall mining attractiveness.  
 
1X will continue to have a 1MB block and SegWit;  
2X will have a 2MB block and SegWit;  
Bitcoin Cash (Just for info right now) currently has an 8 MB block with NO SegWit;  
 
Current Price Status (Futures) on BitFinex: 2X/BTC = 0.17; 1X/BTC = 0.83  
 
Current Mining Status: 2X = Around 85% of blocks are signalling for 2X.  
It seems only a few mining pools including Slush Pool, F2Pool and Kano CKPool are not signalling Segwit2X. All Antpool (Jihan Wu) owned pools are signalling for Segwit2X and will likely continue to do so up to the fork. It is not clear if any other pools from the Segwit2X signalling group will change their minds in the meantime.  
 
Lower mining power chain: Likely to be 1X. Fees likely to be extremely high as not many miners. Difficulty adjustment could take a few weeks, if not months. Until then it will be very difficult to transfer funds. [It may be better to keep BTC on an exchange before fork, to ease liquidity cost/time if you want to sell either of the coins immediately]  
 
Double-spending: Miners (from 2X) will have an ability and incentive to double-spend on the minority chain (lower mining power chain). If you have huge mining power, you can allocate some of it to just double-spend on the minority chain. Some people will possibly lose confidence in the minority chain as a result.  
 
Replay-Protection: Neither 1X nor 2X currently have replay protection.  
 
Exchanges:
  1. Bitfinex: original chain is “BTC”, SegWit2x chain is “B2X”  
  2. BitMEX: Original chain is BTC  
  3. Bitstamp: Unknown  
  4. GDAX & Coinbase: hash power and market cap decides which chain is “BTC”  
  5. Kraken: Unknown  
  6. HitBTC: original chain is “BTC”, SegWit2x chain is “B2X”  
  7. CoinsBank: Original chain is BTC  
  8. CEX.IO: original chain is “BTC”, SegWit2x chain is “B2X”  
  9. Gemini: hash power decides which chain is “BTC”  
  10. Coinfloor: Unknown  
  11. BTCC (Updated on Twitter): BTCC will consider which of 1MB and 2MB to name as #bitcoin based on market feedback and adoption.  
Further details in reference 4.  
 
The opinion section
Vinny Lingham's opinion: 2X will outcompete 1X.  
 
Enter Bitcoin Cash: A review by Ryan X. Charles who has incorporated some of Vinny Lingham's quotes, states the following:  
 
a. BCH is a fork of BTC with same PoW, but with improved Difficulty Adjustment Algorithm (DAA). BCH cannot die, but 1X and 2X could both die. If whales shift most of their holdings to BCH (or another coin), that would incentivise the miners to mine BCH (or another coin) instead of 1X and 2X. Both 1X and 2X would lose their mining power; however Core would release an emergency update to software adding DAA like BCH (or another coin). Thus, 1X would survive, and 2X (which might not get DAA) would die.  
 
b. If 2X continues to be the dominantly mined chain, 1X will be forced to launch an emergency update to their PoW with DAA. There could be fighting between the two chains, and as a result a struggle to become dominant potentially causing altcoins to flourish.  
 
My observations
BCH is upgrading their EDA (Emergency Difficulty Adjuster) on Nov 13. See website. This will lead to reduced volatility in BCH - likely making it more attractive to more long-term miners.  
 
Mining profitability: It is currently almost equally profitable to mine either BTC or BCH.  
 
• What to keep and eye on before the fork to judge yourself where the fate of BTC is heading.  
  1. Mining signalling distribution
  2. DAA: 1X or 2X software updates to implement Difficulty Adjustment Algorithms
  3. Futures price before fork
  4. Significant whale movement

25% of Hashing Power is now Publicly Backing BIP100

At least 3 pools are now tagging their coinbase signatures with "BIP100" which combined amounts to about 25% of mining hashing power. This includes f2pool Kano pool and Bitclub. It would appear BIP100 has quickly overtaken BIP101 in terms of hashing power support. F2pool previously called BitcoinXT an altcoin and it would appear they are pushing for BIP100's in Bitcoin Core as an alternative. Kano pool made a statement about the switch here.
Edit: Looks like there's an article now.
Edit2: BTCChina is now also backing BIP100, this brings the total pools backing BIP100 to about 35%, it's now almost inevitable that Antpool and BW will also switch to BIP100.
Edit3: Bitfury backs BIP100.

Mining Pools Switching To SegWit

SegWit was released over 3 weeks ago, and we have already been through a 2 week difficulty adjustment period, why haven't more mining pools switched to SegWit?
I know some pools are trying to block SegWit, like AntPool, F2Pool, BW, and some others. From what I understand, they won't block it if the Core Devs release an update that will increase the block size.
But what about the other pools?... The ones that are for SegWit but haven't switched yet. It's been over 3 weeks since the release. Isn't that plenty of time to update their systems and make the switch?
BTCC, BitFury, BitClub, and Bitcoin India, have all switched. Slush's Pool switched too, but it looks like not all of their servers. 2/3 of Slush's mines are showing a YES vote, and 1/3 is showing NO vote.
The total YES vote percentage was a nice steady climb up to ~25%, but with no more pools switching over the steady climb has flattened out. I thought it'd be at ~50% by now, not stuck at ~25%.
Slush's Pool - When will you be 100% supporting SegWit?
Telco - Are you going to support SegWit?
1Hash - Are you going to support SegWit?
Kano CKPool - Are you going to support SegWit?
Bitcoin.com - Are you going to support SegWit?
GBminers - Are you going to support SegWit?
BTC.com - Are you going to support SegWit?
HaoBTC - Are you going to support SegWit?
ViaBTC - Are you going to support SegWit?

Non-propagating dust transaction creation by pools needs to stop!

This is an issue that has led to unnecessary clogging of the network for a long time, yet it seems to be one that has been overlooked for some time.
For those who don't know: BLOCK REWARD = 12.5BTC + (SUM OF ALL TRANSACTION FEES MINED ON THAT BLOCK)
Most of the largest pools keep the transaction fee part of the block reward for themselves (i.e. they do not pay that out to miners.)
Here's what I'm talking about:
This is done by pools that do not pay out transaction fees to miners (Antpool is by far the worst offender.) The practice is only profitable to pools which retain the transaction fee part of the block reward for themselves. The pool constantly creates a large number of minable but non-propagating transactions by creating transactions which violate the network "dust" rule. This rule prevents payments of less than 0.00001BTC from being broadcast throughout the network. As a result the transaction gets "stuck" in the pool's node and as such can only be mined by them. They will attach a large fee to the transaction, which in turn lowers the priority of transactions with lower fees attached. This ensures that only transactions with the highest fees are included in the block they mine- leaving the transactions with lower fees attached unconfirmed, driving up the necessary transaction fee, wasting mining power mining transactions that server no other purpose other than to drive up transaction fees and allowing the pool to, in essence, refuse to mine transactions with a fee below a certain amount attached. Since the pool will mine it's own transactions, they can create a virtually unlimited number of these transactions, with many unconfirmed descendants, to serve their purpose depending on the state of the mempool, and since they do not pay out transaction fees to the miners, they will get back all the transaction fees they used to attach to these transactions. Algorithms determine how much of the block-space to "waste" in order to maximize the profit- since the mempool can be analyzed at any time, it can be determined exactly how many transactions to create and what fee to attach in order to mine the transactions with the highest fee attached and drive up the necessary fee to have a transaction confirmed along with the "smart-fee," while ensuring low fee transactions are mined by the pools that do not practice this strategy. The strategy pays highest when the mempool is above 1MB (the size of a block) or has quickly filled. It also is most profitable when the fee distribution and queue-time in the mempool is highly divided/distributed- this strategy can prevent lower-fee transactions that have been waiting a long time to confirm from replacing new transactions that have a high fee attached on a block.
In Summary:
  1. Pool creates many "dust" transactions and attaches a high fee to each.
  2. Dust transactions (transactions below 0.00001BTC) do not broadcast, so the pool is guaranteed to mine its own transactions and re-collect the high fees they attached to the transaction.
  3. Pool now only mines outside transactions with the highest fees (per kB) attached, leaving the low-fee transactions to be mined by pools which do not practice this while simultaneously driving up the fee necessary to have a transaction confirmed.
Example:
https://www.blockchain.com/en/btc/tx/c57ea54104bbf160bac88b65b2edf465c5f8ac9253c42e391100fc31b028d645
If you click on the address, you can see this exact transaction is repeated exactly every hour (which sends a fixed amount back to itself and an address that cannot be decoded, due to the nature of the transaction, being sent 0BTC- which is what makes this a dust transaction.) If you go back to the block this transaction was originally confirmed (mined) on (by Antpool) you will see tons of similar transactions. In fact, Antpool has hundreds, if not thousands, of addresses used solely for this purpose. The practice is much more calculated and complex (in actual practice) than I summarized above. Eventually (or sometimes even on the same block) the divided outputs created by each transaction you see on that account would/will be concatenated into a single output over an additional series of combining, non-broadcasting, "dust" transactions.
Can it technically be considered a fair practice?
While their are plenty of valid reasons to create non-propagating transactions, such as to concatenate inputs left with dust amounts of bitcoin after valid transactions, without risking loosing the entire amount due to the minimum transaction fee being larger than the total amount, creating transactions like this with no other purpose than to increase a pools own profits is hard to argue as being a honorable one. Furthermore, since this practice is overall detrimental to the network (filling blocks with loads of unnecessary transactions, slowing confirmation times and artificially manipulating the necessary transaction fees) and in addition penalizes pools which pay the transaction fee part of the block reward to miners (since the practice cannot be performed by such pools, as it would cost the pool far too much,) as well as the fact that THE MINERS- THE ONES ACTUALLY CONTRIBUTING THE MINING POWER ARE NOT BENEFITING, I think it is safe to say that this practice is a deplorable one. Yes, one could argue that this is a loophole and exploiting it is going to be a natural occurrence, but I believe that since it encourages pools not to pay the transaction fee part of the block reward to miners, it is a practice that should not continue.
What to do about it?
There are a few options:
You can try if you run a full-node, but...: I for instance run a full node on a high bandwidth, fixed IP and allow incoming connections. I allow more connections in the command line options and maintain a few hundred connections at once. I noticed a few pools started automatically connecting to my node (I had to do some nmap scanning and some other testing to confirm they were indeed pool nodes, and who they belonged to, but was able to determine that- my first clue was multiple connections from bitcoinj nodes in the same subnet.) I was also able to find the addresses of other pool nodes and manually add them with the `addnode' command. So, with multiple pools connected (or the ability to connect to multiple pools upon restart,) I tweaked my node to allow for the broadcast of both zero-fee and dust transactions. My thinking was that I could serve as an unknowing "bridge" between pools- broadcasting one pools "dust" transactions to another, thereby removing the pool's ability to ensure that the transaction was not mined by another pool and making the practice unprofitable.
BUT... While this sounds good in theory, in practice it doesn't work for a few reasons. First of all, the pool nodes would not connect to me once I started broadcasting dust transactions. Second, I noticed my overall connection count way down, leading me to believe that broadcasting dust transactions was causing me to be labeled as a misbehaving node and finally, while this could work for some less advanced pools, Antpool, at least, designs its dust transactions in such a way that they violate more than just the "dust" rule- further tweaking would be required and this would need to be an action taken by a majority of nodes to work.
The only other option, I suppose, would be to appeal to the bitcoin dev team. Perhaps they could implement a way to prevent this practice, although I do not likely see it happening. The "dust" rule is in place to prevent clogging of the network with tiny transactions- to prevent anyone wishing to back-up the network from being able to do so without spending a large sum of money. The dust rule and the minimum transaction fee go hand in hand to prevent such occurrence- so anyone wishing to do harm to the network would soon find themselves spending very large amounts of BTC in an attempt to back it up- pools which retain the transaction fee however are not bound by these limitations.
The only real option to fight this, as a miner, is to mine on a pool that pays the transaction fee part of the block reward to the miners- you'll make more anyway, even if the overall fee may be slightly higher. An example of one of these pools is KANO, there are many others. I would just avoid antpool in general- but that's just me.
tl;dr
Pools which retain the transaction fee part of the block reward use a loophole is a network rule that allows them to only mine high fee transactions, which in turn hurts pools that pay the transaction fee part of the block reward to miners, clogs up the network- slowing confirmation times, and drives up transaction fees.

BIP65 Deployment Status at ~26%, Remind your Mining Pool to Upgrade

Pools with "YES" are now producing v4 blocks while pools with "NO" are not, pools with "PARTIAL" have produced v3 blocks after v4 blocks indicating they have only upgraded some of their nodes. Services that run a full node for transaction processing and users also need to upgrade otherwise they should wait for at least 6 confirmations.
Note: Any users running Bitcoin Core should upgrade to 0.11.2 the network, the network needs a lot more nodes running BIP65 compatible code. We should try and get a few thousand nodes upgraded before BIP65 takes effect.
Warning: Because XT has not yet merged BIP65 support, it may extend an invalid chain once 75% is reached, although it is unlikely an invalid chain will be produced at that point because CLTV is non-standard

AntPool NO
F2Pool YES

How to support Bitcoin Unlimited activation ...

Here is a list of pools currently still using the old client of Bitcoind (13.0 or earlier) which hinders activation of Bitcoin Unlimited.
** No BU support yet **
I expect in time these pools will update their software, however, until they do miners may prefer to migrate to another pool to help activate it. Once activated you can swap back if those pools still offer a better deal.

These pools DO SUPPORT Bitcoin Unlimited already

I shared this post today and it took me 2 mins and felt good :)
** Here are tutorials to start with Bitcoin Unlimited **

21 Inc joins other pools and backs BIP100 bringing support well above 51%

21 Inc has joined other pools in tagging support for BIP100.
Based on blocktrail stats over the last 24 hours pools supporting BIP100 now make up 54.48% of total hash power.
This also confirms that as was suspected this statement which claims majority miner support for BIP101 is not true.
KNC makes a statement saying they will also back either BIP100 or BIP101. KNC is now tagging blocks with BIP100.
CKPool Solo backs BIP100 as well although they have yet to mine a BIP100 block.
Other Pools who have tagged their coinbase sigs with BIP100 include:
Bitfury
f2pool
Kano pool
Bitclub

November Fork - The Facts

With less than a dozen days left before the SegWit2X fork, I have started gathering facts before I start forming personal opinions and speculative conclusions. I refer to the SegWit1X chain as 1X and the SegWit2X chain as 2X for simplicity, and I have looked for very simple facts and safe assumptions. Here are the dots that I gathered:  
 
• Fork at Block 494,784. Approximate date = 16th of November.  
 
The New York Agreement: The NYA involved parties representing about 83% of the then hashing power who all agreed to both hardforks - one for SegWit and another for an increased block size of 2MB (2X) within 6 months of the former. Further details in reference 1.  
 
• It is safe to assume that miners will only mine the most profitable chain (possibly several chains in differing proportions).  
• If whales pump a single chain it will gain more value. If this happens, miners will be more inclined to mine that particular chain only. This will result in the other chain(s)potentially losing overall mining attractiveness.  
 
1X will continue to have a 1MB block and SegWit;  
2X will have a 2MB block and SegWit;  
Bitcoin Cash (Just for info right now) currently has an 8 MB block with NO SegWit;  
 
Current Price Status (Futures) on BitFinex: 2X/BTC = 0.17; 1X/BTC = 0.83  
 
Current Mining Status: 2X = Around 85% of blocks are signalling for 2X.  
It seems only a few mining pools including Slush Pool, F2Pool and Kano CKPool are not signalling Segwit2X. All Antpool (Jihan Wu) owned pools are signalling for Segwit2X and will likely continue to do so up to the fork. It is not clear if any other pools from the Segwit2X signalling group will change their minds in the meantime.  
 
Lower mining power chain: Likely to be 1X. Fees likely to be extremely high as not many miners. Difficulty adjustment could take a few weeks, if not months. Until then it will be very difficult to transfer funds. [It may be better to keep BTC on an exchange before fork, to ease liquidity cost/time if you want to sell either of the coins immediately]  
 
Double-spending: Miners (from 2X) will have an ability and incentive to double-spend on the minority chain (lower mining power chain). If you have huge mining power, you can allocate some of it to just double-spend on the minority chain. Some people will possibly lose confidence in the minority chain as a result.  
 
Replay-Protection: Neither 1X nor 2X currently have replay protection.  
 
Exchanges:
  1. Bitfinex: original chain is “BTC”, SegWit2x chain is “B2X”  
  2. BitMEX: Original chain is BTC  
  3. Bitstamp: Unknown  
  4. GDAX & Coinbase: hash power and market cap decides which chain is “BTC”  
  5. Kraken: Unknown  
  6. HitBTC: original chain is “BTC”, SegWit2x chain is “B2X”  
  7. CoinsBank: Original chain is BTC  
  8. CEX.IO: original chain is “BTC”, SegWit2x chain is “B2X”  
  9. Gemini: hash power decides which chain is “BTC”  
  10. Coinfloor: Unknown  
  11. BTCC (Updated on Twitter): BTCC will consider which of 1MB and 2MB to name as #bitcoin based on market feedback and adoption.  
Further details in reference 4.  
 
The opinion section
Vinny Lingham's opinion: 2X will outcompete 1X.  
 
Enter Bitcoin Cash: A review by Ryan X. Charles who has incorporated some of Vinny Lingham's quotes, states the following:  
 
a. BCH is a fork of BTC with same PoW, but with improved Difficulty Adjustment Algorithm (DAA). BCH cannot die, but 1X and 2X could both die. If whales shift most of their holdings to BCH (or another coin), that would incentivise the miners to mine BCH (or another coin) instead of 1X and 2X. Both 1X and 2X would lose their mining power; however Core would release an emergency update to software adding DAA like BCH (or another coin). Thus, 1X would survive, and 2X (which might not get DAA) would die.  
 
b. If 2X continues to be the dominantly mined chain, 1X will be forced to launch an emergency update to their PoW with DAA. There could be fighting between the two chains, and as a result a struggle to become dominant potentially causing altcoins to flourish.  
 
My observations
BCH is upgrading their EDA (Emergency Difficulty Adjuster) on Nov 13. See website. This will lead to reduced volatility in BCH - likely making it more attractive to more long-term miners.  
 
Mining profitability: It is currently almost equally profitable to mine either BTC or BCH.  
 
• What to keep and eye on before the fork to judge yourself where the fate of BTC is heading.  
  1. Mining signalling distribution
  2. DAA: 1X or 2X software updates to implement Difficulty Adjustment Algorithms
  3. Futures price before fork
  4. Significant whale movement

kano vs. slush pool thread, which is better? Let's put all our data together to settle this

I've seen people discuss pros to kano (https://www.reddit.com/BitcoinMining/comments/7spqg1/mining_with_24_antminer_s9s_pool_advice/) and pros to slush. Can we collect all the data everyone has on how your miners (mostly s9s would be helpful) perform on both pools to see which is overall better? I have 10 s9s on slush and am putting 4 s9s on kano for a month to experiment but I would also like to hear everyone's experiences.

KanoPool stopped signalling fro Segwit2X (aka NYA, aka Alt Coin B2X)

Other miners ALSO seem to be changing their stance, as Bitcoin BTC hovers around $7200 USD today.
"Haipo Yang, CEO of ViaBTC, the fourth largest pool by mining power, agreed, indicating that his pool will only offer bitcoin mining on the original bitcoin chain to begin."
AND
BTC.top "plans to allow customers to "choose to mine any coin" or automatically switch between blockchains, turning their computing power to whatever coin is most lucrative, even after Segwit2x."
AND
"Also on the record for backing out of Segwit2x is bitcoin mining pool F2Pool, with its operator Wang Chun telling CoinDesk in August that he didn't support the New York Agreement any longer. At press time, F2Pool is no longer "flagging" for the change in its blocks."
AND
"Jan Capek, CEO of the fifth largest mining pool Slush Pool, said he'll be aligning behind Bitcoin Core developers in their rejection of the Segwit2x software."

PLUS
BTCC Mining Pool Stops Signalling for SegWit2x. Source: https://themerkle.com/btcc-mining-pool-seemingly-stops-signaling-segwit2x/
I very much doubt that SegWit2X will get the hashing power, that they anticipated.
This is an educational post, & is based on my current knowledge, which is limited. I could be wrong. Please carry out your own research.
