HI all

I never followed the original thread, but i'm interested in how the mining side of things works...

How do you keep the mining fair between each different Algos? i mean is there a factor involved that adjust the difficulty between each different Algo?

e.g. if i was mining using NIST5 would i find a block quicker than if i was using X15? as there are 3x more rounds of hashing involved...

Each algo has its own difficulty retarget. So hashrate between NIST5 and X15 doesn't matter, your earnings are based on how much your hashrate compared to every else's hashrate is (total network hashrate).
