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.  Blogging is the new Mining
