While mining with a pool, I recently noticed among the numerous "Stratum from pool 0 requested" lines that bfgminer prints, one saying

 Accepted (hex number) CPU 2 Diff 288/2

Does this mean that I found a valid block? Or something else?

Looking at my BTC Guild account, I see no evidence of any blocks found by my computer.

This means your pool server has accepted one block, generated your CPU, third thread, of difficulty 288 (with a minimum of two).

  • If this was generated by my CPU, that is odd because BTC Guild does not show any contributions from my computer. – Friendly Nov 10 '13 at 15:55
  • That's odd, is your "worker name" correct in bfgminer? In BTCGuild, in the "Your Recent PPLNS Shift Statistics" window of the Dashboard page, are any of the numbers in the "Shares" column non-zero? – Novox Nov 11 '13 at 19:10
  • Does the user need to care about the difficulty and its minimum? – Rasoul Dec 26 '13 at 0:17
