I had a new idea (I think), for how to distribute payout from a pool.  Instead of all shares being equal, each share is weighted according to 'how low' it is.

The theory being that this simple change would eliminate all motivation for supposed 'pool cheating' or pay-per-share scamming where 'very low hashes' are withheld.

This would make a 'winning share' worth more than any non-winning share.

Creating a Bitcoin client that fully implements the network protocol is extremely difficult. Bitcoin Core and some of its derivatives are the only known safe implementations of full nodes. Some other projects attempt to compete, but it is not recommended to use such software for anything serious. (Lightweight clients like Electrum and MultiBit are OK.)
