How it works:
TBDice automatically takes your litecoin address and gives you a unique stratum connection mining to your own address.
LTC: If you find a block, 99.5% of the 25 LTC + transaction fees get generated directly at your litecoin address!
DOGE: If you find a block, 95.0% of the 10 000 DOGE+ transaction fees get generated directly at your doge address!
All you need to confirm you are mining to your own address is to examine the coinbase and template sent to you over stratum.
When you find a block, just follow the link in blocks page to double check where the coins went.
Mining URL: stratum+tcp://tbdice.org:13333 or stratum+tcp://tbdice.org:13334
s(bf)gminer -o stratum+tcp://tbdice.org:13333 -u LUNyycVonDH9aQMZn1fxyUeu8N3yS8w7ud.0 (your LTC address.worker number -p x:DFeviTwbDbJXgjPRS6zxe74Z4hodvRrTKP (your password:DOGE address). This configuration is recommended.
MutliSig addresses starting with 3 are properly supported.
Set your username to your LTC address with any or even no worker extension, and any password.
If you enter an invalid address it will be ignored and earnings will be generated to the following address: LUNyycVonDH9aQMZn1fxyUeu8N3yS8w7ud and be considered a pool donation.
If you do not put a DOGE address in the password the DOGE earnings will be generated to: DFeviTwbDbJXgjPRS6zxe74Z4hodvRrTKP and be considered a pool donation.
All invalid user names for LTC will turn RED on Users page, if you have no address for DOGE in the password the MM address on the Users page will say Pool. If you have it correct it will say Self.
Pool Mail Notifications:
s(bf)gminer -o stratum+tcp://tbdice.org:13333 -u LUNyycVonDH9aQMZn1fxyUeu8N3yS8w7ud.0 (your LTC address.worker number -p x:DFeviTwbDbJXgjPRS6zxe74Z4hodvRrTKP:email@example.com:type=Y (your password:DOGE address:Your mail address:type=postive integer number).
The type=Y can be one (or sum) of flowing: 1 receive notification for all DOGE blocks found by your worker, 2 receive notification for all LTC blocks found by your worker, 16 receive notification for worker disconnect events and 32 receive notification for worker authorize events.
For instance: type=1 you will be notified for new DOGE blocks only, type=3 (1+2) you will be notified for both DOGE + LTC blocks or type=51 (1+2+16+32) will activate all four notification events and so on. It is up to you to chose any combination of the above. Full example: s(bf)gminer -o stratum+tcp://tbdice.org:13333 -u LUNyycVonDH9aQMZn1fxyUeu8N3yS8w7ud.0 -p x:DFeviTwbDbJXgjPRS6zxe74Z4hodvRrTKP:firstname.lastname@example.org:type=51
Please Note: On multiple worker disconnect events within 60 sec time frame only the last event will be mailed. Same applies for authorize event also.
Pool, Miners and Workers Stats:
All pages are showing LTC difficulty. In order to match the numbers to your s(bf)gminer stats you will need to multiply corresponding diff values by 65536. Please be noted that there might be some errors +-1% due to rounding.
The pool is configured to start you mining at 128 difficulty.
The pool supports difficulty setting inside your password. The format is: diff_xxxxxxx:(DOGE address), where xxxxxxx can be any positive integer value. For example s(bf)gminer -o stratum+tcp://tbdice.org:13333 -u LUNyycVonDH9aQMZn1fxyUeu8N3yS8w7ud.0 -p diff_2048:(your DOGE address) will start you mining at 2048.
The new diff can be used when you are renting equipment which requires higher difficulty setting, or you need your diff to be exactly power of two or whatever other reason you might have.
You can use this simple formula to find out your starting difficulty: Instance speed in MH / 1.4 / 1000 * 65536. Example for 300MH it would be 300 / 1000 / 1.4 * 65536 = 14043.42 which equals to -p diff_14043. To be on a safe side you can use next power of two integer value, which is: log base 2(14043.42) = 13.77 = pow(2,14) = 16384. Unless there is no particular reason please do not set your diff inside password string. The pool auto adjusts per instance difficulty to maintain a share rate of approximately 3 shares per 10 seconds.
The new diff feature sets your worker min difficulty limit also. Poll will not adjust your worker diff below it. The current worker difficulty is available on workers page.
All miners < 0.4Mh - 400 Kh, must use diff_16 to avoid pool idle disconnects.
Please Note: DOGE difficulty retargets every block, so it is currently ranging between 13,000 and 33,000 in very short intervals of time. This means it is possible to get a best share of 28,243 when DOGE difficulty is 32,000, and a few minutes later someone finds a block with only a 21,542 share when DOGE difficulty is 19,482.
The pool fee is divided as follows:
0.5% LTC block reward goes to pool LTC address LUNyycVonDH9aQMZn1fxyUeu8N3yS8w7ud to operate the pool.
5.0% of DOGE block reward goes to pool DOGE address DFeviTwbDbJXgjPRS6zxe74Z4hodvRrTKP to operate the pool.
Pool: LTC address LUNyycVonDH9aQMZn1fxyUeu8N3yS8w7ud
