General Support / Re: Unable to receive mined BBP - CPID error
« on: June 14, 2018, 03:10:33 AM »
Not that I am in anyway related to the BBP team, but I think I know what the issue is.

I have had the same problem (and the same lack of response :) ) and I somehow managed to solve it. Maybe my input can help you.

As far as I can see from your "00d7144c5bde88819f6228e52749caa8_UTXOWeight", you are staking 2 BBP and from your "00d7144c5bde88819f6228e52749caa8_RAC" that your RAC is 85.

The way BBP mining works is that you are essentially part of a lottery. All miners participate with a weight, called "magnitude". For details I refer you to the docs.
In essence, the weight is based on the number of coins you have and the amount of work you have done with Boinc.

For the optimum payout, you should have 20 BBP for every unit of RAC. In your specific case 20 * 85 = 1700 BBP. However, with these numbers, you are a small participant in the lottery. Your "magnitude" is very close to zero. Which is why you don't receive BBP for the mining you have done.
In fact, you are still submitting valid shares to the pool, but they still get rejected because of the zero magnitude. This is where the CPID errors come from.

As a reference, when I had ~9000 BBP and a RAC of ~900, I received ~40 BBP for a full day of mining.

Interesting detail is that, the way this reward-system is setup, the payout increased to ~70 when my RAC dropped to ~700. This has to do with the formula they use: BBP / (RAC * 20).
This means that if the result of that formula is less than 1, you should stop Boinc, because at that stage, curing cancer actually decreases your reward. I agree that it is a strange side effect, but it is true non the less. If the amount of BBP increases (by mining or buying) you should make sure that the outcome of the formula sticks as close to 1 as possible by increasing/decreasing RAC.

Just to let you know, I think the mining and reward system is flawed. The first flaw is that mining is virtually impossible without having (=buying) coins. The second flaw is that doing too much to cure cancer through Boinc, will in fact decrease your reward.

In conclusion: If you want to keep mining, you should buy some BBP :( .
Once you have more BBP, you can resume Boinc, but only up to a certain point.

Anyway, I hope this information helped.

Hi Lichtsucher,

I have been trying various setups which all failed. Now I have started all over and seem to have a setup that (kind of) works, but I still don't receive any reward.

If I take a look at my "Miner statistics", I see that the name of my worker matches my setup, but I also see 419 errors (Illegal_CPID ).

If I had to take a guess, I would say my magnitude is 0.004 which makes it too low to receive a reward, but that still doesn't explain the Illegal_CPID error.

In my stake is too low, I can buy more coins, and - after that - pump up my RAC.
But before I invest some money, I want to make sure that it is indeed the solution.

Could you shine your light on this (pun intended  ;D) and please tell me what the problem in my setup is?

Kind regards,
