Hi

I am currently mining on a pool that has suddenly had a big spike in the number of miners and hash rate of the pool, at the minute the number of shares is 8000. They have just released another PPLNS pool where the number of shares is 100,000. Would it be a benefit for me to make the switch? At the minute the total number of miners on that pool is significantly less, Im not sure what if anything is the benefit of switching to a pool where the PPLNS is 100,000.

Thanks

All that matters the amount of blocks they hit .

If the hash rate calls for them to hit 10 a day and they hit 10 a day consistently the payout would be the same with 8000 or 100000 share count systems.


Or ten dollars in dimes = ten dollars in pennies.

Next question do they share the block fee with miners?

I mine alt coins with https://simplemining.net I see BTC as the super highway and alt coins as taxis and trucks needed to move transactions.
