Ok, I've run the numbers.... Those that have stayed with the pool should fair better than those that have come and gone.

It is a common myth that Bitcoin is ruled by a majority of miners. This is not true. Bitcoin miners "vote" on the ordering of transactions, but that's all they do. They can't vote to change the network rules.

I feel pretty strongly that you shouldn't change scoring in the middle of a round when people who joined thought it was proportional.

However, I also feel that score based (or whatever other method) is better.

I would personally rather you hold off until block 2 to implement it though, unless we really see the hashrate tank.

But I would support you either way.

I agree, I just want to know what the users want Smiley

Does this "cheat-proof" scoring prevent my earnings from decreasing?

I'm not sure it's even possible to poolhop on your pool currently. For poolhopping you need to know when a new block starts, and the only stat you provide is the hash rate, e.g. not enough Smiley

It's possible, but it is much tougher to gauge. The cheat-proof method also really rewards those who evenly participate in the whole round.

I'm working out the new estimation now. That said, your earnings don't actually decrease now, they are based on your participation % in the round. Until a block is found your earnings are 0.

Your ultimate amount now is roughly "(your valid shares/totalroundshares)*50"

Since you've gotten the earnings calculations sorted out, I will rejoin your pool once you find your first block. That way I can get "fresh" statistics in a new round.

I bet he has implemented long polling... from then on it's trivial! Wink

^^  Sad

yep. this is why I want to switch to the new scoring method on the new round. Even if estimates are off still, I will make the switch to reward our loyal users.
