I have forked Monero V0.13.0.4 and changed the network ID and genesis tx. The Blockchain was running fine for a week, after that I noticed that there were some serious delays in the block creation time, sometimes it took 3hrs to mine a block. Day by day, the time delay for block creation has increased, now it's been more than 20hrs and the blocks are not yet mined.

Currently the blockchain is running on Monero v7. Below is the detailed info about the network.

Network Hashrate: 5.083 MH/s Total Pool Hashrate: 6.03 MH/s Difficulty: 609932199 Block Height: 10498

I have also noticed that the blocks created after the delayed time are created pretty quickly. The delay in block creation is happening once in a day.

Any help regarding this will be really helpful.

Thank you in Advance

  • Have you updated your pool code correctly? – jtgrassie Feb 14 at 14:43

    And the pool is mining (finding) and submitting blocks? Because you stated the pool has a higher hashrate than the network, which means it should be submitting blocks. But if it's submitting bad blocks, there's your problem. – jtgrassie Feb 17 at 4:40

    If your pool/miners are hashing with the wrong CN version, they will regularly submit bad blocks. That's why I asked if you'd updated the pool with the same version as your daemon is running. E.g. you state in the question your fork is running Monero v7, so your pool and miners have to be using the exact same version of CN that was in Monero v7 (which is CN variant 1). Otherwise, the pool will be submitting bad blocks and your chain wont grow. – jtgrassie Feb 18 at 4:53

    Firstly, you have to wait some time for network difficulty to adjust. This won't happen immediately after stopping your pools/miners. Second, have you changed the network byte and p2p ports in your fork? Have you checked nothing else is connected when your pools are shutdown? – jtgrassie Feb 19 at 12:52

    If it's working with purchased NH then your miners were the problem. – jtgrassie Feb 20 at 13:56
