I had been trying to compare the growing number of mining pools and their features at one point, and there wasn't a concise table that summarized them. So, I decided to put one together:

http://pastehtml.com/view/awb1vg03r.html

Please help me fill in the question marks and fix any mistakes, as well as contribute information on any pools that I may have overlooked.

If you can post the info for me using the terminology of my table, I'll add it.  No disrespect intended here, it's simply that I've found that trying to track down the information individually for so many pools, and then translating it into the standard language of my table is MUCH more time consuming than is necessary.  I don't have the time to join every pool to figure out the features or read pages and pages of pool threads to track down the most up to date answers. If each pool expert can simply come here occasionally and give me their information in an organized post, I can easily add it, and everyone benefits.

Also, if you are a pool operator providing me with your info, be honest and help all of us out by providing ALL of the info (i.e. not just the green ones).  That way we don't get stuck with a lot of question marks.

Thanks!

Don't know what do you mean by "e-mail change payout lock", but we have optional permanent address lock and e-mail confirmation for address change.

Also both proportional and pay-per-share payout modes are available.

Very nice Cheesy Now if only there was some kind of real time pool size comparison or user-generated uptime rating...

Check out some of my music, and if you like it, please donate!

Most pools provide their total hashrate data and it's shown as pie chart at http://bitcoinwatch.com , but there is no averaging for more precise results.

I think I accidentally conflated two separate features.  I need to add a row for e-mail confirmation for address change, and have a separate row for payout lock on wallet address change.

Thanks, working to correct this info now.  It's hard to read through these entire mining pool threads to find this info, and the first posts aren't always updated, hence the errors.

Hi,

found this wiki page yesterday https://en.bitcoin.it/wiki/Comparison_of_mining_pools

Excellent, I hadn't seen that when I searched around the other day.  One thing I'm confused about on that list is that it says slush has LP.  According to the phoenix miner running on my computer, it doesn't, unless I'm doing something wrong.

One thing you could add:

Transaction fee on withdrawal. Some pool charge 0.01, some charge 0.

Since the pools usually put the transactions into the blocks they solve that is an additional fee. Say someone withdraws every time their balance reaches 1 BTC, then 0.01 is an extra 1% fee.

Continuum does support long polling and does have a JSON-RPC API. It has automatic payout at 1BTC, no manual one. Username == Bitcoin address, like Eligius.

Can anyone answer the question marks on BTCmine?  I'd join to check it myself, but they aren't accepting new sign ups for the next few weeks.

Maybe Add "Support by GUIMiner" ?

A proper GUI to set up the miner is imho the most important feature for all those newcomers after the latest press covering of BitCoins. I guess there are some not so techie users out there who are not interessted in every little tech detail and want to stay away from concol windows/unix/etc., but would love a "One Click Solution" to start mining - GUIMiner is their answer.

Cheers

Yeah, I can add "GUI support preset in:", and then list which GUI tools it is supported in (guiminer, bitminer, etc). 

On a side note, I would like to see at least some of the pool owners of the smaller pools help me fill in the question marks, as it would help them advertise their features. It's difficult to find out all of this information without scouring through page after page of forum threads for each individual pool.

Deepbit doesn't takes any additional fees for sending payments.

Thanks Tycho, info added, and you're not even one of the smaller ones! Smiley

I think I am going to contact each of the mining pool operators to ask if they would like to contribute to this.  Are there really no miners who use the pools with the question marks on them who can help fill this in?
