Suspicious pools. What is happening?

A perfect analysis of @somemoar posts.


You can block users in your profile and their posts will be hidden.
I don’t see those posts any more and the forum is much less cluttered.

Perhaps using artificial intelligence it is possible to create a bot that creates troll-like posts based of input from previous posts. Maybe you’re not dealing with a human at all. That would explain the quantity of posts, the word salad and repeated phrases from previous posts.


Good advice, normally I wouldn’t think to block people because I’m worried I might miss some important information, or the thread might stop making sense. But in this instance, I’m fairly sure its safe to add this individual to my ‘ignore, forever.’ list. :face_with_hand_over_mouth:


We’re not. At 34PB now. Slow march up haha

Also, when you see a user posting material that you feel is not contributing to the community please flag them (probably as Inappropriate). It’s the best way to bring it to the mod’s attention and to reduce their negative impact on the community

You are sooo confident about this, PROVIDE EVIDENCE. Link to a farmers dashboard and the assiciated transactions.

Well, i would trust you more than somemoar… Of all word he used in “what he is” only “i” 'am" “a” and “and” really apply to him. The rest? Lies and very doubtable

They don’t care. If they would care AT ALL, this somemoar guy would already have been banned. He openly insults people as gay, retards, openly hates on gay and obviously is either homobphobic or scared to come out of his closet.

this forum offers him a platform to publicitly hate on minors and they do nothing about it.

I’m afraid he just succeeded in his effort to hijack this topic :frowning:
I would suggest to stick to the topic and ignore his random hate bursts.

He did get banned, check his profile.
Btw, Admin was travelling he said, but back now


If we were to inflate our numbers by 4x but are still winning at the rate that we claim (~20min at the time of posting), where would we get all this chia from to pay people out? You think that we infusing 60 blocks/day out of our own pockets? Also, use the method OP is using to verify every block claimed by the pool, you’ll find that all 70-80 blocks that we find are indeed block rewards by our farmers.


Thanks for the interesting review @dontfoolusplz

In we include block confirmation height, not the height of the block that has been won. Keep in mind, it is NOT the confirmation height of the incoming transation to the wallet, becuase that coin is created by a seperate “absorb” transaction.

After thinking about it a bit, height of the original block is probably more interesting to display, so we will switch to that value shortly.


Thanks for the reply. You are one of the few pools that made some kind of public statement about this.

Thanks for doing this research @dontfoolusplz and bringing this to our attention.

Indeed we were showing the wrong blocks in the statistics which I agree was confusing.
We fixed this and now show the proper height and header hash of the original block farmed by the pool participant.

We hope this clears things up and makes things more transparent. We would appreciate a double check and an update on your side.


I had to delete my original post, i’have been personnaly harrased for it and my identity has been stolen.

For frenchfarmers you can check this : Chia (XCH) Address xch16aq8fpg45pdk9v68nsa5kdvvlsfpayca4skjlw8qqfsm6jhks3rq00g0ym | XCHscan

Yesterday 3 blocks I think you should review your article.

It’s not our concern, I earn money with the pool and even more than with some. You are pissed off because you got fired from the project.

Thank you for your honesty and response. Unfortunately I can not edit the original post anymore, there seems to be a time limit for editions in the forum. Maybe an admin can transform this thread into a wiki post so we can edit it.

I’ve upvoted your comment in the meanwhile so other users can see it stick out and know that your pool is legit.

If you read the post carefully you can see that I am not claiming that FrenchFarmers is faking rewards, but that they seem to be artificially making their netspace bigger than it really is. This has been confirmed by the leaked code of an ex-frenchfarmers developer.

We don’t know why they do this but we can speculate that they are faking their netspace to attract more farmers.
