My computer is mining monero with monerod daemon pointing to my monero wallet, and I found in the logs some messages like this one:

[timestamp] BLOCK ADDED AS ALTERNATIVE ON HEIGHT 1382864

I thought my miner had found a block but there is nothing new in my monero wallet. Please explain the meaning of this log message and how does it looks like when the miner find a block and add some monero in my account. Thank you.

That means the blockchain had a re-org because 2 blocks were found at almost the same time by 2 different miners. The one with bigger difficulty came later and pushed the other one out.

  • Thanks, so how does it looks like when the miner find a block and add some monero in your account balance ? – Laurent Aug 31 '17 at 13:00
  • If you find a block, it says "Found block for difficulty XXXXXX". – user36303 Aug 31 '17 at 14:57
