You act like there is a zero fee and 106% PPS, but what about sharing the transaction fees to miners?

106% percent is sharing the fees without miners taking the risk of fee fluctuation.
Pools should reduce risk for miners - not roll it back to them

Lulz so either it fake and you wont be able to get the BITMAIN account to post in here saying it isn't fake ...
or worse, it's Bitmain trying to add yet another pool they control while they pretend they don't control a large % of the hash rate.

Yep you can't win with either option Smiley

The fee fluctuation is mostly highly positive, so I would say there is no or close to no risk for miners.

Hi Kano,

Thanks for responding.

The pool is very much real:

As for choices, we believe miners can chose for themselves which pool provides them the best service.

So do you mean that you have a voting possibility for miners like Slush pool has?

Which means you're focused on running a profit business as much as possible and attempting to dissociate mining from the bitcoin network at large. I'm sorry but currently mining voting is the crucial thing lacking, preventing bitcoin from moving forward and I think your position is unacceptable given lack of miner support is what's preventing successful bitcoin evolution. You cannot pretend mining is dissociated from bitcoin development as much as they can't pretend mining is dissociated from bitcoin development. At this point in time I'd call it negligent for a pool to not at least have a position with respect to segwit, core, and unlimited, even if that position is 'we don't want change.' If that's what you really want then at least make it clear.

Yes, we are a for profit business. As are the vast majority of our customers.

and attempting to dissociate mining from the bitcoin network at large.

There's really no logical line connecting these two claims. How can mining be dissociated from Bitcoin?

I'm sorry but currently mining voting is the crucial thing lacking, preventing bitcoin from moving forward and I think your position is unacceptable given lack of miner support is what's preventing successful bitcoin evolution.

You say miners should "vote" and are unhappy they aren't, we get that. This is a discussion to be had with them.

You cannot pretend mining is dissociated from bitcoin development as much as they can't pretend mining is dissociated from bitcoin development. At this point in time I'd call it negligent for a pool to not at least have a position with respect to segwit, core, and unlimited, even if that position is 'we don't want change.' If that's what you really want then at least make it clear.

To be clear are you saying it's the pools job to signal?

Yes? It's a combination of giving those miners who want to signal the option to do so, and as a way to represent the remainder that have no opinion on the matter. Basically I'm saying a pool should either give miners a choice, or have a position.

Pools are the miners' voice and the miners are the only ones who can reliably activate substantial change. People want to either choose a pool based on what it's signalling or want the pool they're already loyal to to give them the option of signalling what they want. The fact that there are lots of miners that choose pools only due to profit doesn't change the fact that pools are the ones with the actual power to effect change. Pools should be proactive and ahead of what is happening in the bitcoin development space even if the miners are less inclined to be so.

Lack of more concrete messages from the pools is the reason garbage like User Activated Soft Fork and much worse, change of PoW are being bantered around. I understand there is potentially conflict since you're representing bitmain who have a (very unpopular) position of sorts, but you have said you're an independent entity.

What about miners that want to actively abstain from choosing a side in this scaling war?
Those miners can choose this pool as a way to signal their discontent from the scaling war and both sides.
