Although, the analysis has quite the Zeno's paradox now that I look at it again, because if it continues to take 10% off the "new" old balance, then it'll be taking 10% for infinity.

According to this video, the 10% off the stolen BTC stays the same size until the old balance is completely exhausted.

I think it goes more like this:

Starting with 0.012 BTC in Old balance

> 1st Payout - Need to mine 0.01 - (0.012/10) = 0.0088 BTC. 0.0108 stays in old balance.
> 2nd Payout - Need to mine 0.01 - (0.012/10) = 0.0088 BTC. 0.0076 stays on old balance.
> 3rd Payout - Need to mine 0.01 - (0.012/10) = 0.0088 BTC. 0.0064 stays in old balance.
oops, yeah, you are correct. Although I did mention multiple times that it will take 10 payouts to get back everything, that was certainly an oversight on my part when charting the math..

Quick update. Looks like NH lowered their external wallet cutoff to 0.003 last night. I got my first payout along with the 10% top up.

Nice, I've gotten my first ever payment from them. And yes, they included the 10% as well.

Although, now I'm having issues with the Jaxx wallet. I see the transaction when I check my address against the blockchain info website, but Jaxx is not showing the funds.
@SickBeast, perhaps you ran into this same issue, since I think you use Jaxx as well. If you don't see your funds in Jaxx, check your address at blockchain.info to see if they paid you.

I should mention that Jaxx has since added new Bitcoin addresses to my wallet, but I read online that the old ones are still capable of receiving payments (plus I can still access the private keys to the old addresses).


Edit:
oh crap, their support page doesn't recommend using Jaxx for mining payouts. Looks like I'm going to have to find me a new wallet. Any current recommendations? How's Exodus wallet?

I use Exodus. No issues so far. Also I think the Jaxx warning has more to do with too many tiny payments from mining. Considering we only get paid once we reach 2 weeks to a month of mining, I don't think too many tiny payments is necessarily an issue we face.

Yeah, I think the issues I'm having is related to the update I did on the Jaxx wallet. Now that I played around with it, I've made things worse.

My payment for Bitcoin wasn't showing up, so I tried resetting the cache, as Jaxx recommended, but now my Litecoin is not showing up (just shows 0 no matter how many times I refresh), and it didn't even fix the issue with Bitcoin. Updating Jaxx again did nothing either.

Anyway, I've made manual backups of all the relevant private keys, so I'm gonna use the electrum wallet to import the public key so I can actually see my funds properly, then I'll import the private keys to the Exodus wallet when I want to move things around. I don't want to import it right now because Exodus wants to charge me a fee of 0.0005BTC just to import.

I have heard good things about Electrum, also that it has more options and functions for you to use. Let us know how you like it.

Try installing jaxx on another machine using the seed phrase.

Seems great so far. Free import of private keys, and simple to use once you get the hang of it. Not as pretty as other wallets, but hey, it gets the job done. The one thing I don't like is that there are a bunch of Electrum wallets for different coins (BTC, LTC, etc), and I don't think you can consolidate them into one electrum wallet. But I guess it's safer this way.

Edit:
I want to also mention that electrum knows when there has been a transfer that hasn't been confirmed multiple times yet (displayed in electrum as a clock instead of a checkmark), whereas Jaxx seems to wait until all confirmations before showing the transaction at all.

My BTC funds from Nicehash are now showing in Jaxx after 9 confirmations, but my Litecoin is still missing.

That's a good idea. I'll try that when I get home to my mining PC.

Update: I decided to receive an early payout of Litecoin that I was accumulating in Miningpoolhub to test out if it would show up in Jaxx, and after 10 minutes, now both the original "missing" LTC and the new LTC are showing up just fine. But the transaction entry for the original LTC is missing (see image). Weird.

I'll report back again when I test it on another computer.

Guys this is funny, some Russian nuclear scientists used a Russian supercomputer, one of the most powerful computers in the world, to mine bitcoins:

I wonder what kind of hash rate they got. :)

Definitely not. This was a planned upgrade from last month.
