ATTN: Monero partial payout

Oliver 2 days ago • updated by TQH 56 minutes ago 31

The payments for the latest Monero block are delayed unfortunately because of a bug encountered in the Monero Wallet software. I've filed a bug with the Monero team which usually responds rather quickly to issues like this: https://github.com/monero-project/monero/issues/3379

Due to a malfunction in the Monero daemon, the pool assumed that the transfer of 4.46411 XMR to 32 recipients was successful when it in fact didn't happen. The pool attempted a fallback strategy to issue the payments that resulted in just a partial amount of the rewards to get sent which was 1.49291 XMR to 10 recipients. Due to the privacy features of Monero, not even I can figure out which addresses were among those 10 which received a payment. I therefore ask you to post your wallet address here if you are sure that you did not receive your payment. Please be honest. I'm going to collect addresses posted here for a couple hours and trigger the payments in batches.

Didn't receive any & I just tweeted you before seeing this.

Confirmed it's arrived!



Did not receive any payment


Did not receive the last payment ( 0.21227 )



Did not receive the last payment (0.10194 )

payment recieved. Thanks 

the silence says it all.  I guess we got fucked

Time to move to a new pool

Kevin: I wrote in my follow up post that I would gather addresses first and bundle them up in a batch payment.


@Kevin - what silence?  Oliver told us about it, he did not hide it.  He is willing to make it right.  What is the problem then, no-one got "fucked".  A lot of other pools would NOT have notified anyone, it would have been up to each person to notice the error and work it out with the admin.  

@Oliver - thank you for your honesty...

@MinerOfMonero- The silence of not being payed within HIS time frame of a few hours and I have not received my payment or an update of the situation is a problem while I am still mining for the pool. When money is involved time is of the essence.  I only knew because I checked my account and the payment wasn't received. So, IT was up to me to find the error to tell the admin and I found this thread. A lot of people haven't responded to this thread.  5 people responded that noticed weren't paid versus 32 that were supposed to get paid but only 10 were paid. So 22 people were "fucked" out of payment including me.

@Oliver  Its been 15 hours since the follow up post without an update and I feel I deserve an update if I am to continue to mine in your pool. Thank you for your service


There was no silence, I said clearly I would gather addresses first in order to bundle them into bigger batches. I also need to sleep sometimes and since manually correcting a failure such as this in an otherwise highly automated system involves a lot of manual labor that does not allow the slightest mistake, I decided to do that in the morning. Anyone who has mined here for some time knows that scamming miners if not exactly what I'm known for.

Payments for first 5 addresses posted just went out.

Hi Oliver,

Thanks for the payment. Is it possible this issue has happend in the last three months? When I check my wallet balance against the dashboard balance, there's a difference.

No this hasn't happened before.

Thanks Oliver!

If it wasn't for your notice, I would have miss this.

I usually simply follow your dashboard...

because syncing with the network, in order to view my paper wallet (the view only),

is a cumbersome process. [and I'm worry this will get worst as the size of the chain increase]

But doing so, there was two warnings:

1) "Last scheduled hard fork time shows a daemon update is needed soon."

2) "no two valid MoneroPulse DNS checkpoint records were received"

I assumed this is relate to the MoneroV (XMV) fork ?

Again, thank you for the heads up.

r00k: Those messages you saw were from the daemon powering the paper wallet site. I cannot speak for the people running that site but I think your assumptions were correct.


I do everything locally (no other site).
To view my paper wallet, I created a view only wallet using the command line:

monero-wallet-cli --generate-from-view-key  <filename_for_the_wallet>

Updated my daemon by

 - git pull the Monero project

 - make (crossed my finger nothing break)

 - and .. it .. break for the unit_tests ( missing an -fPIC flag ... )

 - however, was able to run the daemon Monero  'Helium Hydra' (v0.11.1.0-master-e9f41e4)

   with same warnings.

But I'm not worry, and was not implying it was your fault.  :)

Hi Oliver,

I figured it out, the dashboard is showing the last payment double.

Hi Oliver, thanks for the post... I just checked my wallet, double checked all transactions and was quite worried that my wallet did not receive the last payment!

My wallet address is:


I should have received 0.12476 XMR yesterday... but I surprisingly did not!

Thanks in advance!!!

You'll receive the outstanding amount tomorrow at the latest as I'm trying to bundle those transactions.

I also did not received 0.112 XMR to my wallet: 46WVHFgzSqDM5PbqD7ViHBM8FVUyMGHZ1fkwC58LnF6YKEXjCccCKosXEXDHSWL9pJBuxJxepnU6kbo1TkKPTgkjMrAbSoN

Hey Oliver,

 I've never actually checked my wallet :) It's taking forever to sync will let you know onces it's done synching

Piri's and Sebi's payments went out.

Thanks! I confirm I correctly received the payment.

Hi oliver, sorry to bother you again, but there is a fastidious side effect: having happened the "repairment" payment you triggered (in my case related to the balance earned at blocks 152450515255271526374) after block 1527400 (the last one, found 21 hours ago), the server resetted my balance to 0.0 xmr. But I am missing the +0.04129 XMR balance gained at the last block 1527400.

Can you do something to restore my balance relative to earnings at block 1527400 (+0.04129) to my address


Again, thanks in advance, I hope I explained myself well enough for you to understand the situation !!!

Anyway, if you have a look at the "account statement" at my wallet's dashboard https://coinfoundry.org/pool/xmr/account/47UYvtc6Z1a3v1LiUcGe4kKqi6aAiRuF9Beu5smDRDXTK6PhEjEKBix6t1NNXam9PGPysgm71JvHkSvLrKzhQDPY847iX6Z

you can clearly understand the problem and recalculate the balances to confirm I am not tricking you and the pool!

The problem has been corrected, thanks again!

Hi Oliver,

Thanks for letting us know, after checking, my 0.11875 XMR did not make it to my wallet.
