Monero Observer – Rucknium: ‘Monero transaction confirmations are now 60 seconds faster’
10 Mar 2023
Rucknium has confirmed that most centralized mining pool operators responded positively to his January 19th research and XMR transaction confirmations are now 60 seconds faster:
The average time that a Monero transaction has to wait for its first confirmation has fallen from 3.5 minutes to 2.5 minutes. That’s a full minute improvement in less than two months!
* Config changed: - HashVault & MoneroOcean: January 20 (~24 hours) - SupportXMR: January 24th (5 days) - Nanopool: February 1st (13 days) * Unknown: - xmrpool.eu * Config NOT changed: - c3pool & 2miners
ofrnxmr and ACK-J also took part in this joint effort by helping contact pools and asking them to change their default configurations.
DataHoarder contributed code to gather mined block data from centralized mining pools, while plowsof and the MRL’s research computing server contributed computing resources for mempool data gathering.
